    Never saw the original, but was a huge fan of one of the remakes that aired on Nickelodeon in the early 90's. And with Plec and Berlanti running things, I'll be all over this should it make it to air.

    I wonder just how much Berlanti and Plec will have to do with the writing, though. If this goes to air, and has the pace and structure of TVD, I'd be quite pleased...

    I am hoping they keep TIM, the alien A.I. ship that help the group out. I am also wandering if they will keep the "Jaunting" (their term for teleporting would be an innate ability or will still use technology to jaunt around like their belts or wrist-bands. Yes I know show cause it was one of my favorite shows in the 70's/80's. :p

    Never saw the original, but I quite fondly remember the 90s version when I was a kid. Definitely giving this a shot.

    I got to thinking about the remake/reboot and the how should the the teleportation be shown? should the homo-superiors stand while jaunting or should they do more action based teleporting like in Jumper or Nightcrawler in Last Stand? Also should they still be pacifists or have some martial arts style they does not do much harm to their opponents? What do you think?

    Given that two of the people behind this are behind the two biggest shows on The CW right now, I'm betting this at least gets a pilot.

    I wonder if it'll draw some inspiration from whats been done in the X-Men films (the good ones, at least), as opposed to stuff like Heroes and Alphas. Obviously, it'll draw inspiration from the original series, but Arrow has drawn just as much inspiration from Batman as it has from anything Green Arrow-related.

    Why can't they do both? Stand & port and also Jump & port?

    Martial arts styles??!?:wow::huh: Keep them as normal people, 1 or 2 with fighting skills, the rest as strange loners

    Pilot Ordered

    Not surprising, considering the two names behind this. :up:

    It's on hold until next season now. They want to take their time to get things right, which I understand. Still don't know why they would've jumped the gun with casting calls if they were going to chicken out at the last minute...

    I didn't even realize Noamie Harris (Skyfall, 28 Days Later, Pirates Of The Caribbean) starred in the 90s version until recently.

    Nice to know it is being produced by people who were fans of the original.

    It's definitely helpful. I haven't watched the original series, but I'd be interested to. Wonder if this makes it to series, if they might decide to release both previous series on DVD.

    Probably time to end the show anyway. It hasn't been the same to me since season 5.

    Minor subplot aside, the new season has been pretty great IMO.

    Eh, doesn't sound great, but it's a pretty vague description. I trust the writers on board enough to make this worth seeing. Plus, "X-Men in high school" doesn't sound any worse than "Twilight on TV" and that's pretty much exactly what TVD started out as, and now that **** is gold.
