Cowboy Bebop Live-Action Series

Cowboy Bebop is arguably one of the best anime series to ever be made. The animation was stylized and innovative, the music was unique and emotional, and most of all it got you invested in the characters from the moment we were first introduced to them. In fact, just the other week I actually started the whole series over again from the beginning and re-watched each episode on Hulu. I had forgotten just how good this anime really was and being older I feel that I could truly appreciate it even more. So, just when I started to think that they should really make another series set in the Cowboy Bebop universe we get the news that a live-action Cowboy Bebop series is in the works. 

Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars

All the way back in 1997 the sci-fi cult classic film Starship Troopers was released. 20 years later it looks like we humans are still fighting for survival against the bugs yet somehow Johnny Rico has managed to stay a live this entire time. Now it seems that times are more desperate than ever and even worse their might be someone who has betrayed humanity in this war for existence. Honestly I loved the original but haven’t seen any of the sequels. However, Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars sounds pretty exciting and makes me want to revisit this action packed and brutal universe. The CGI looks pretty good and might be worth a watch.

So it looks like today is your lucky day Destiny fans, because we have the first official game play trailer for Destiny 2 posted below for your viewing pleasure.

Star Trek: Discovery Official Trailer

It has been 12 years since the last Star Trek series aired it’s final episode. Personally I think we are long overdue for another series that will explore strange new worlds and new civilizations. Thankfully the wait is almost over as CBS has given us our first look at the brand new series Star Trek: Discovery. This is definitely a new take on the Star Trek universe and it looks to have a very cinematic quality to it. If I didn’t know any better I would think I was watching a trailer for a new Star Trek movie. Visual effects have definitely come a long way since the days of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine.

Seth MacFarlanes The Orville: Official Trailer

So it looks like Seth MacFarlane is taking his love for science fiction where no TV show has gone before. Actually several have gone here before but his new show The Orville puts a bit of a slapstick, comedic twist to it. This is definitely a spoof of the many Star Trek TV series that have come and gone, but also a bit of an homage to them as well. To be honest this actually looks like a refreshing new show that I could honestly get into. Also, with John Favreau directing this new series I think it has a lot of potential to be a hit. The only thing I’m worried about is that it already looks like it has the same type of comedy as A Million Ways to Die in the West and that movie was terrible.

X-Men Series The Gifted official Trailer

There has been a lot of talk and speculation about what an X-Men TV series might entail and now the official trailer is finally here. Last night the FOX network released the trailer for the new series loosely based off of the X-Men comic series called The Gifted. It is described as an action-adventure family drama that follows a family who discovers that their children have mutant abilities. I have posted the trailer below for your viewing pleasure and my personal thoughts on the trailer for this new series. 

Judge Dredd TV Series in the Works

Great news Judge Dredd fans, it looks like there is a TV series based on our favorite futuristic law bringer currently in the works. Personally we here at Nerdgasm Needs are huge fans of the 2012 Dredd film and have been eagerly waiting for a sequel. Though this is not a direct sequel to the movie, fans should still be pretty excited about this announcement. Honestly, an on going TV series might actually be a little better avenue for Dredd especially with so much content already written in the comic series. This has the potential to be one of the best comic booked based series on TV if it is done right. Also be sure to check out the official poster below.
