    This has potential to be the next GoT or could end up being "John in Cincy".

    Let's hope they did it right...

    Is this only going to be 10 episodes? Hard to see this being much longer than a season or 2, but still kinda surprised if its just one season?

    HBO creates a ton of great mini-series that are "limited" and never renewed for a second season. Generation Kill is a great example.

    It kind of sucks that they don't continue their better mini-series, but this looks great.

    I think this show's budget would be unsuatainable long term unless they killed off a lot of the cast.

    Yeah I'd imagine it would be tough to maintain that cast longterm.

    Well the previews sure look intriguing. As stated, that particular one was disturbing. I like stories that revolve around the perception of existence. I hope the story is fluid enough without feeling discombobulated.

    Anthony Hopkins has to be one of the most unique actors in Hollywood. Nobody, and I mean nobody, can play a Hopkins type character, except Hopkins.

    It doesn't matter if he's playing a deranged serial killer, or the king of Asgard, he's got this quality where he comes off as slightly insane, but you still respect him. I can't explain it. Almost like a version of Christopher Walken that you can relate to.

    Television really is taking the wind out of movies.

    I can't remember a single recent movie that has been good as some of the series that we're now seeing on television. It's just a much better medium; the studios get far more bang for their buck as they can get a lot more footage per set or take. The audience gets more characters development and exposition.

    A studio can build a set and only get maybe 15 seconds of footage out of it for a film. That same studio can build a set for a television series and get content for the entire run of the series. Think of the Red Keep on Game of Thrones, or Winterfell. Six years later and they're still using shit they built in S1.
