Really, I have an ex who's obsessed with that show, it takes up about 55% or more of her tumblr postings, is it actually like the Nolan movies?

So so so so very much... The general "direction" (as in "Hi I'm a director and my name is Chris Nolan" not as in like "we're headed in this direction") is different, obviously.... but it's very closely written (and occasionally directed) by his brother Jon (who pretty much wrote all the best Nolan films), and Jim Caveizel is now MY choice for retroactively replacing Christian Bale in the most recent Batman series.  Even the secondary characters and recurring villains remind me of Nolan's Batman and the animated series.  Every time I see Elias, I can only see him as the animated Penguin.

It has a touch (and only really a touch) of Abrams... especially in some of the casting roles, mostly Michael Emerson, the guy who played Goodwin (on Lost), and Alan Dale etc.... but I always said POI was the closest we'd probably get to a Nolan Batman TV show.

I guess I might have spoke too soon, but we'll see.

Here's a couple of not-all-that-spoilery clips. The video quality on the first one is kinda bleh, but it's still awesome.

Matthew McConaughey continues his string of good decisions (except the Paperboy, but to be fair, it's certainly an interesting role...) with this great looking series with Woody Harrelson.  The premise doesn't exactly look original, but it looks good: well shot, interesting setting and some good actors.  Apparently, each season of this series will be a completely different story with completely different cast.  Sounds fascinating.

Rainmaker Entertainment Inc. Reboots Mainframe Entertainment As Its New Television Division

SSA Public Relations           News Release
 

Development Of An All-New ReBoot Animated Series Among The First Projects Under The Classic Corporate Banner

VANCOUVER, BC (September 30, 2013) – A renowned global animation brand is about to be re-booted.  Reflecting the company’s commitment to the production of animated programming for television, Rainmaker Entertainment Inc. has named its television division Mainframe Entertainment.

In conjunction with the re-birth of Mainframe Entertainment, a name celebrated for its pioneering achievements in computer-animated television, the company has unveiled the first two series in development: an all-new version of the popular ReBoot franchise and Tiger’s Apprentice, a CGI animated series based on the trilogy of young adult novels written by award-winning author Laurence Yep.

The reimagining of the venerable ReBoot series comes just in time for its 20th anniversary.  Making its debut on television screens in 1994, ReBoot was centered on the world of Mainframe, where a guardian program sprite and his friends defended the system from superviruses bent on creating havoc and destruction. Mainframe Entertainment will team with leading computer industry manufacturers to update the ReBoot universe and create a ground-breaking viewing experience for fans.

Mainframe has also partnered with Jane Startz, the multi- Emmy, Golden Globe and ACE Award-winning producer of Ella Enchanted, The Indian In The Cupboard, Tuck Everlasting and the acclaimed The Magic School Bus. Tiger’s Apprentice, a coming of age story centered around 12-year-old Tom Lee and the Guardians of the Phoenix.  Set in San Francisco, this modern-day fantasy is filled with classic Chinese lore, magic, comedy and action as Tom and the Guardians fight to protect the human race from ancient evil forces intent on its destruction.  Mainframe has optioned the animation rights to Tiger’s Apprentice as part of its commitment towards bringing popular book-based children’s properties to television.

 “We are excited to focus our television production activities under the Mainframe brand with an all-new version of ReBoot as well as engage with celebrated children’s programming producer Jane Startz on Tiger’s Apprentice.  ReBoot is certain to be embraced by a new generation of fans while Tiger’s Apprentice will provide a bold and unique television experience for kids everywhere,” said Michael Hefferon, President and Executive Producer of Mainframe parent Rainmaker Entertainment

Acquired from Starz Media in 2006 by then newly-established Rainmaker Entertainment, Mainframe Entertainment was responsible for an impressive  production slate throughout the 1990’s and early 2000’s, including several seasons of ReBoot, as well as the critically-acclaimed ‘Transformers’ spin-off Beast Wars.   Mainframe credits also include Weird-Oh’s, Spider-Man, Action Man, Heavy Gear, Max Steel, Scary Godmother andBarbie.

Did Reboot ever get closure or did end on a cliffhanger?

I forgot that I had heard there was a Ratchet & Clank project in the works!


Oh, and Lucky 7 has been cancelled by ABC.  Guess I don't need to watch the 2 episodes on the ol' DVR.

Mainframe Entertainment really lost it's way after a while.  They did solid work on Reboot, but then they did a lot of weak projects.  It will be interesting to see how they fair when there are so many other CGI TV series out there.
