In many ways Hemlock Grove is more a 13-hour movie than a 13 episode show and, because it’s being released all at once, its characters can be explored in long arcs without having to catch up an audience. That’s something McClure and Douglas feel BSG struggled with during its four-season run.
"Author R.D. Drabble paints pictures with his words, as if he can see them all around him."
Line of Sight is the creation of Blake Masters (Brotherhood, Rubicon, 2 Guns) and it's the story of Lewis Bernt, a "National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigator who survives a mysterious plane crash, bringing him on a quest to discover the accident's cause. He becomes a man whose entire sense of self, his own life and the world as he knows it, completely unravels in a whirlwind of obsession and paranoia." The show is described as a unique blend of science fiction, drama and "conspiracy thriller."
"Lucy will be an action movie with a distinctly sci-fi premise, about a young woman who is forced to become a drug mule and inadvertently manages to absorb the drug she’s carrying into her own system. Rather than landing her in the hospital, the drug gives her superhuman powers, including telekinesis, the elimination of all sensations of pain or discomfort, and the ability to absorb knowledge instantaneously."
Interesting take on SF/F tropes in mundane TV.
"Thanks to the box-office success of original properties like “Avatar” and “Inception,” the science fiction genre has, in an industry characterized all too often by its aversion to financial risk, managed once again to become a haven for creative filmmaking."
The saga centres on a planetary defence force which fights back against alien invasion by setting up bases on the extra-terrestrials' home world, using a wormhole over Antarctica. Yukikaze is the name of the advance reconnaissance fighter plane used by the series' hero on many of his missions.
