My understanding is that its a Minority Report television show, I really just hope if it does get greenlit it doesn't turn out to be a futuristic Fugitive.hentropy said:Wait, they're doing ANOTHER Minority Report movie? I like Spielberg but I thought the last one was good enough to stand without being redone immediately.
On topic, I've been liking The Nightly Show, a good panel discussion show on more than once a week (like Maher) is nice and so far I've really liked the people they've gotten, a mix of actual talking heads and media personalities with irreverent comedians. I also really like the "theme of the day" format rather than trying to multi-task and do a lot of things, because it allows for more in-depth discussion than a few jokes being lobbed its way, like the Daily Show. At times I think that while Wilmore gives off the dry deadpan intellectual act he can sort of fall into anti-intellectual hyperbolic traps ("black folks are just trying not to get shot walking down the street!"), but I think overall it's a solid show. Pushing guests to be as "real" as possible regardless of their position is also a nice touch, as one does grow bored of the pre-rehearsed safe answers that everyone is accustomed to.
