    anyone excited/dreading the show?

    idk if its gonna be the next "the last of us hbo (heard it was good)", or the next "halo (whatever it was on, heard it was bad)", but amazon is currently making a fallout tv series.

    (off topic but tangental, peacock is also making a twisted metal series, and idk how i feel about the way it looks)

    This is the first I'm hearing about it.

    The IMDB page has cast & crew and a few photos. Created by Jonathan Nolan, who co-wrote a lot of his brother Christopher's movies, as well as created TV shows Westwood and Person Of Interest. Hmm... it might turn out ok.

    Honestly I don't know how I am feeling about it, considering I haven't seen anything that substantial yet. I'll have more of an opinion once they drop a trailer and I get an idea on what the story is gonna be about.

    "Max serves the giant, seemingly robotic figure of his master with the same naive faith that Lucy has in her Vault Dwellers. But unlike her, he has a cynical sense of self-preservation that leads him to not always behave honorably or heroically. “One of the things we're trying to gently sidestep here is that kind of binary thinking, like, ‘They’re the good guys, or the bad guys,’” Nolan says. “Whoever the good guys and the bad guys were, they destroyed the whole world. So now we’re in a much more gray area.”

    Okay, here's the problem: you can either have a satire, or a drama, but not both at the same time. I like Jonathan Nolan, Person of Interest was a good show, and Westworld had potential... for exactly one season. There's something inherently messy to Westworld because it wasn't ever clear on what it wanted to do as a show overall, and even ended up doing a take on Foundation's premise at one point. I'm seeing similar fault lines in this trailer, but that's possibly just a premature analysis.

    I'll tell you one thing though, having Todd Howard's name in this trailer instills the opposite of confidence in me.

    I'm a big fan of the Fallout games, but, I couldn't care less about the series. Just another cookie cutter Hollywood woke/whatever crap that's not worth a second of my time.

    It's intriguing how people use 'woke' as a universal container for 'shit I don't like, probably women'. At this point, it's only useful as a marker for the person using it being a sad manchild.

    This comment says a lot about you, and very little to nothing about the people you think you talk about.

    I love the FO universe but my expectations are low, low. I think I was hyped for the Witcher TV series and was shocked by how cheap it typically looked, and when it did in fact manage to be lively as in the monster hunter scenes it felt like an interminable cut scene from a video game (of course it did))

    Hope it's at least better than Halo.

    I'm about as anti-woke as a person can be, and what I've seen doesn't look woke to me. I'm really looking forward to the show. I'm sure there are going to be things I don't like about it, but from what I've seen so far, it looks like they've done a fine job.

    2 episodes in and i really like it.

    I just watched Tim Cain's take on it, he really liked it too. He's met Nolan and he's played all the games and is a big fan. It shows.

    What i like the least is the squire, but i don't hate him, not thus far.

    and no, amazingly enough it's not woke, not yet at least. it can absolutely be the good old bait and switch where S2 is instead going all in with it, time will tell.
