Was Kevin Sorbo Busy? BBC's "Atlantis" Trailer
We’re going with a bowling metaphor. Because I’m going to set up some pins here. No, no, don’t worry about what I’m going to do with the pins. Trust me.
First, Howard Overman, creator of “Misfits”. Boom. You’re there, right?
Second, BBC, gold standard network. Salivating, right?
Third, Mark Addy, big King Robert Baratheon himself. Definitely value added.
Fourth, a new series based on the fall of Atlantis. Yeah, you’re feeling it too.
Fifth, it’s got a 13 episode first season and it will air on BBC America beginning November 23. Alright, almost there, wait for the big finish, here we go…
And sixth, here’s the trailer:
How those pins doing? They all got knocked over, right? A couple of them probably shattered in several pieces with a sob like an orphan waking up on Christmas morning. This looks bad. I mean, early nineties syndication bad. Like Kevin Sorbo would turn down the money for this even if he was at the tail end of a cocaine bender and homeless. Student films have been burned for better production values than this.
Eh, probably still better than most of the new network shows.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)
Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
