Have you seen the new teaser for the Star Trek All Access TV show coming from CBS? If not go ahead and watch it now. It is ok I can wait 🙂 There is literally no spoilers or reveals. So it is ok 🙂
If you haven’t heard there isn’t a whole lot of information on this yet on the IMDB page, but it looks like Gene Roddenberry’s son Eugene and Bryan Fuller are attached to this show. What this says to me is that there is potential for this show to be awesome! If your not sure who Bryan Fuller is he was a writer for Deep Space Nine, Voyager and also involved in shows Dead Like Me and Pushing Daisies (if you not seen these shows you really need to watch them as your truly missing out, its ok they didn’t last long like many good shows so it doesn’t take long to watch). Fuller is also now attached to the new show that is coming to Starz, American Gods which is based on the book by Neil Gaiman (my favorite writer) whom if you don’t know who that is well…I just have no words. Do we have anything common? Probably I’m pretty eclectic, but you really should know who Neil Gaiman is.
But wait I digress I am getting off topic…So why is this a big deal? Well if you haven’t seen any of these shows then you really wouldn’t know, but this man touches things and turns them to gold (is what it amounts to). It has potential with Bryan Fuller attached to this show. Although I am really not a fan of the fact it is attached to CBS new “All Access” which really isn’t unless you want to pay $5.99 a month to watch it. That is right you get to watch the first episode on TV for free and then it is only going to be available on CBS’s subscription service.
A poorly titled (or is it?) blog article started a rumor that Nathan Fillion is slated to be the next Captain of the new TV show, but this alas is just a rumor. The blog post was simply trying to plea with the fans and CBS to try and cast him as the next Captain since his show Castle is now canceled and the pleas to renew Firefly has yet to have been answered. Who doesn’t love Nathan Fillion!? However if this was made a reality I think any hopes of Firefly ever being picked up again and put back on air would be crushed. What do you guys think? Should he be the next Captain of the new Star Trek show? Do you think CBS sucks for making this “All Access” only subscription show? Or is it pure genius to gain ground for their subscription service? Leave your comments below 🙂
