    Joel Kinnaman won't return for a second season. He has been cast in Amazon's Hanna TV series.

    That's disappointing, he was solid in this.

    I wouldn't mind if the asian guy came back to play him

    Book:

    Spoiler: show
    i dug the actor but if they stick with the books, Ryker's sleeve isn't used and book 2 is 30 years + after book 1. Maybe it turns up later; I'm only a couple of chapters in.

    I never expected him back for s2 since he gave up the sleeve. Did they ever release the budget on this? Would have way more hype if Netflix didn’t blow their load on cloverfield the same damn weekend.

    If Marco Polo could get a s2 this should be a lock

    ' But when pressed for an actual number, Kalogridis remains tight-lipped — though she did emit a hearty guffaw when pressed that some estimates have the series costing more than $7 million an episode. "That number is really funny," she says with a laugh. "I feel comfortable saying that that number is not correct." But is it wildly incorrect? "I would say it's inaccurate." '

    no idea. but, the screenwriter (above) was a producer for Avatar, and did the screenplay for Battle Angel: Alita which gives me some hope for that hot mess.

    but, they also did some reaaaaal shit work along the way, so i ain't holding my breath.

    Even if all 100 million subscribers only had the cheapest plan (9.99) which they don't (I pay 14.99 just to have to 4k content and share with family) they make a billion a month. A billion. They gross 12 billion a year. They spend between 7-8 billion on content a year. I'd say they are doing fine even if every episode did cost 7 million. Now 50 million for Cloverfield, you won't hear me defend that decision though lol

    Season 2 will be book 2 (should it be renewed) and will be even more expensive to produce. Season 1 was tweaked to contain elements from Book 3.

    So I just binged the series. I have never read the books. Spoilers obviously so click at your own risk.

    Spoiler: show
    I liked Kinnaman in this role. He did a fantastic job. I also love the fact that the sleeve was given up. This show has the potential to be a violent tit filled Doctor Who. That being said I am fully expecting Will Yun Lee for season two. I am really hoping somehow that Dichen Lachman manages to survive and reappear in the show. She played the shit out of her character arc. The whole Lizzie becomes the Terminator was fantastic.


    All told, start to finish, this show was fantastic. It's just another disconnect between the so called professional reviewers and the actual viewing public.

    I didn’t even know this was getting bad reviews. All the reviewers I follow loved it.

    I stopped after the fourth episode. Characters aren't interesting and the plot just wasn't drawing me in.
