Hey you guys Hollywood is at it again, another piece of my childhood us being re-imagined, revamped and repackaged for the new millennium, and I’m hoping to hell they do a better job of it than before.
Sundays at my Grandparents consisted of pottering round the garden, having tea, then flopping in front of the t.v while the adults talked in the dining room, at that time in the evening a certain type of show was always on, the sleek spy/secret agent/crime fighter show that was, in all honesty, already approaching painfully dated when I was watching re-runs in the early 90′s.
The Avengers, The New Avengers, Charlie’s Angels, The Champions, Randal & Hopkirk (deceased), and The Man from U.N.C.L.E, these where my companions through formative years, and one by one I have seen them picked off for unsuccessful updates: . The Avengers film was terrible and quickly passed from cultural memory, now all but a quirky footnote to explain why the UK release of the Marvel Avengers film needed a subtitle. . Charlie’s Angles got as far as as sequel before it too crashed and burned. . Randal and Hopkirk had a brief revival, with a series where the main protagonists were played by alternative comedians Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer, but it never really took off.
I suspect any attempt to remake The Champions would be viewed as too silly, as the original was rather daft to begin with.
Now they come for my sweet Illya Kuryakin and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. To be fair the trailer looks quite good, instead of taking the high campy road that could be seen as staying close to the source material, that other films have tried and failed at (Charlie’s Angels, The Brady bunch) they seem to be trying to play it straight, even having an actor with a passable Russian accent play Illya, which is good, and at the same time really jarring for any who grew up with David McCallum’s decidedly un-Russian accent.
Lets just say I am hesitantly optimistic about it’s chances, and I hope to gods they keep the original evil organization’s name:- T.H.R.U.S.H! :’D
Oi, Nanda tudo bem? eu dei uma fuçada na tag e vi que não tem nenhum rp c/ temática policial (se tiver me desculpem, deixei passar despercebido). Você tem alguma ideia de porque isso acontece? Queria muito jogar, mas infelizmente nenhum que achei na tag me agradou muito(apesar de achar os plots incríveis)
Amor, tudo bem e você? Eu realmente não sei porque, já que a ideia é excelente. Tinha um RPG de detetives e espiões, o Deteclues, mas alguma coisa tipo policial mesmo eu nunca vi. Ia ser super foda algo tipo Castle, Rookie Blue, CSI, Criminal Minds, NCIS ou Forever. Eu realmente acho super foda e super diferente. Acho que ninguém pensou nisso ainda, e renderia ótimos plots de várias temáticas. Muitas vezes as pessoas tem ideias sobre RPGs com temática parecida, mas seria legal um RPG que dê para desenvolver todas essas temáticas que as pessoas querem em um RPG só. Não sei se eu fui clara, mas é isso ai UHEEUHE.
