Hold on, reading it again, it may not be all the songs.  It does say more than 300 songs, so I'd say that's pretty damned close.

Deena Pilgrim is cast in the long in the works TV adaptation of Powers.  It's FeyoncĂ© from 30 Rock.

The premise of the show is that an ex-superhero has become a homicide detective with a specialty in superhero/villain related murders.

Powers was a great comicbook series, but I don't know how well it will translate.

Correction, another bleak cop show.  Where they melt the Pope.

Powers was a great comicbook series, but I don't know how well it will translate.

I don't think the showrunner is announced yet, which might have a big impact on letting us know what kind of show to expect.  For now, I have cautious optimism that they'll make it good.

That's more like it!  I could watch a show where the cops battle an army of pope clones and pedophile priests.  Any day with a pope disintegration is a good day in my book.

I really got to catch up on that.  Everything I read about it sounds like my cup of tea.

The Hub Network is going to be going through a rebranding leaving the Emmy award winning Aquabats Super Show without a home. They announced they won't be picking it up for a third season.  :grr:  THANKS OBAMA!

It's the Mike Tyson Mysteries!

Looks fun, though surprisingly I could do without Norm McDonald's character.

Max Landis is looking to make a Dirk Gently tv series.

http://www.avclub.com/article/max-landis-turning-douglas-adams-dirk-gently-books-207748

This made me look for the previous attempt by the BBC, and it's available on Amazon Prime, so I know what I'll be watching for the next few days....

Hope they do a good enough job of this one to get more than 4 episodes.
