Sony's producing it, and apparently being adapted by a screenwriter whose credits include some episodes of Chuck and Agents of SHIELD

I gave up on Agents Of Shield shortly after the English girl came back from whatever planet she got stranded on.
It was amazing how they'd managed to suck all the joy out of the shows premise. I hear that they've got Ghost Rider as a recurring character, now, but I can't be arsed to go back to it.

I quite like that Jessica Jones, partly because I *love* a good noir and partially 'cos I'd like to do a sex on her what's in it.
She's got that moody vibe like Lauren Bacall had.

Sorry lady boarders.

I enjoyed the Jessica Jones series, but did find it somewhat heavy going - it could have used a breather episode, away from the main storyline.
Season 2 of Daredevil was similar, in that respect. Loved Luke Cage, though, and don't really understand the bad press that Iron Fist has been getting.

Hope it's better than the Shanara TV adaptation.
That was cack.

It'll go one of two ways
They'll cut loads out to make it accessible to people who haven't read the books, attracting the ire of people who have.

Or

It'll be so long winded and dragged out like the books that most people will be turned off by the snails pace of the plot, cancelled after a couple of seasons

I sort of gave up after the third book
it's all contrived bollocks

Name a fantasy series that isn't
I've said a few times I really liked the series as a whole, but it couldn't work as a live action series unless every actor devoted over a decade to their role given the length
