Such a tragedy... TV actresses are judged in part by their looks.  Next thing you know they'll want action heroes to be muscular.   :P

Apparently I'm the only person who has an opinion on the costume.

I don't like the costume.  It's not pants vs shorts either, there's just something about it I don't care for.

Is it the juxtaposition of different materials for the bodice and pants?  The pants appear to be some sort of matte poly-cotton blend while the bodice is a very shiny vinyl or other plastic material.  Doesn't bother me but I can see how others would find the combination jarring.  What I don't like are the wrinkles in the bodice material.  On either actress, it makes the uniform look saggy and not at all supportive, like it was about to fall off or something.  Perhaps the Hall of Justice could hire a tailor?

No...just the only one who does not adequately admire a good pair of boobies.

Edit.  Screw it.  If you ever wonder why there aren't a lot of females posting here, this is why.

There are women posting here? I thought Tracy was the only one.

I'm female and I lurk because there isn't a lot for me to post that isn't quite succinctly put by other more active members.   :D  I don't care about the ogling in general but it just rubbed me the wrong way because I was trying to discuss the costume and the responses from some posters were only about the quality of the wonder-boobies.  I'll get over it.

Got tired of burying the Super Hero TV stuff in the movie thread, so I thought I'd start this one as a place folks can talk about "in development" TV shows, like the recently flopped WW show or...   the new rumors of a potential Green Arrow show.

If they couldn't get WW off the ground, I wonder why they think they can get GA going?  Less iconic, more open to drama and action maybe?  Also, it will be interesting to see how much is the classic Silver Age stuff comic (Ollie, Dinah; fighting against "the man" etc) or how much it's all-new stuff (Connor; spiritual, martial arts based stuff)

If it doesn't star Justin Hartley it's gonna cause such a backlash it'll fail.

I don't even have to read the article to know it's not going to star Hartley. And because of that, I wouldn't watch it even if I had the CW network.

I thought they could have easily spun off his character from Smallville if they wanted.  Why start over when you've already invested in establishin a character?

Maybe Hartley wanted too much money?  That's the only thing that pops into my head.

I'll admit that I watched Smallville off and on during its run, and I actually liked Hartley's portrayal of GA on that show.  If they were going to spin off something like this, I don't know why they wouldn't just cast him.  They already had a Black Canary on Smallville as well, although if they recast it wouldn't be a big deal.  I think they'd get a better audience if they tied into Smallville somewhat.  I mean, they could probably talk some of the previous cast members (Welling, etc.) into making a guest appearance every so often too.

Just because of the fact that's it's not going to be a direct spin-off from Smallville will mean that the new wirters and producers will want to put their own spin on things which means that any new GA show will be a "reboot" in that it won't take any cues from Smallville.

Which is a completly ****** way to go about it.  Smallville had a built-in audience that liked not only the characters but actors as well.  Directly spinning off from Smallville would have, most likely, taken most if not all of the fans they already had and had the chance to add to it. They could have set it in Star City rather than Metropolis, kept Hartley and gone on from there. 

Instead we'll get something new, it'll have to build an audience from scratch and all the fun and quirkiness that we loved in Smallville will be gone.
