|02:20 am - TV Woot!|
Can I just say, seeing The Dresden Files back to back with the two-hour premier of Blood Ties (based on the Tanya Huff urban fantasy series about a private investigator who -also- deals with vampires, werewolves, demons and stuff) makes me happy?
Cripes, never thought I'd watch anything on Lifetime of my own free will.
All they need to do now is put, say, Kim Harrison's Dead Witch Walking on TV and we're all set. (And yes, I heard where they were adapting Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse books as True Blood, starring Anna Paquin, for HBO.)
Actually, ya know?
Dresden Files on SciFi.
Blood Ties on Lifetime.
True Blood on HBO.
The other networks are gonna get jealous and start shopping... anyone heard anything about an Anita Blake series yet?
Frankly, my wishlist would be the Kim Harrison books, something based on the Bordertown series, something based on the Wild Cards series, and a full-length epic movie of War For The Oaks. For starters...
Current Mood: creative
OMG, a full length movie of War for the Oaks would be spectacular.
If they do make Anita Blake into a TV show, hopefully they don't use her more recent books as examples of what to do. Otherwise, only cinemax will be willing to show it.
Bring the older, less filled-with-sex-with-random-peoples-in-various-stages-of-humanity-written-badly, into play. Everything prior to Narcissus in Chains would be delightful.
Oh yes, I highly agree. The first 6 books or whatever would be great for that sort of thing. 8 and after, wellll...
I guess Cinemax could pick it up. :>
Mmmm, War for the Oaks...
Meh, why stop there? Let's have movies for Falcon and Bone Dance while we're at it.
Well, given as how Emma Bull and Will Shetterly have, in the past, written a full-length screenplay for WFTO -and- produced a pseudo-trailer using assorted friends and family (http://www.greenmanreview.com/book/interview_bullshetterly_script.html
)... Used to have a review of the trailer as well, wonder where that went.
That fantasy isn't entirely out of the realm of possibility. :>
