Re: B5 Reboot?? Is it true??!!?!

I think a lot of his quote is all well and good, but I think the concern stems from the fate of The CW. Once they get bought....all bets are off. So while it's true the pilot isn't dead right now,...

Yea, the CW may not have been able to pull the trigger, even in spite of the high-level executive being a fan, due to the pending acquisition and exiting commitments.


And the current CW...

I remember reading somewhere that The CW might get sold at some point in the next 18 months. I wonder if that impacts things with this reboot. Apparently JMS did comment on it, and made it sound...

Re: B5 Reboot?? Is it true??!!?!

I enjoyed The Orville when it was on broadcast TV. I'm not sure I'm signing up for another streaming service just to watch it, but I thought it was a good show.

It's hard for me to consider any Trek that has been helmed by the "Lost Boys" as cannon. I get they did the whole Kelvin timeline, but they still did it sloppily, and Picard, while certainly...
