Time for some TV tidbits.
DOES COMCAST KNOW WHAT IT'S DOING?
All last year we heard how Comcast was going to rebrand its G4 Channel, which specialized in tech, games, geeky stuff and reruns, into the Esquire Channel, which will be a more upscale lifestyle brand, in association with the magazine Esquire, natch. They cancelled all of G4's original programming, fired all the employees, and generally burned their bridges with everyone associated with the channel.
Now, in a fit of whimsy, they decided that the fashion-centric Style Channel would now be the Esquire Channel instead.
So what about G4?
It looks like nobody knows. Not even Comcast.
WE'RE OFF TO SEE THE WIZARD, AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.
There are now four Wizard of Oz themed shows being slapped onto the airwaves.
1. Emerald City on NBC which puts Dorothy and her adventures in modern day New York City, because New York is cheaper and easier to work in than either Los Angeles or Oz.
2. Dorothy on CBS which is apparently some sort of medical drama.
3. Warriors of Oz on SyFy which is going to be some sort of post apocalyptic action adventure show that will no doubt have the same class and quality as Sharknado.
4. CW's adaptation of a novel called Dorothy Must Die, which is about Dorothy becoming the dictatorial ruler of Oz, and the rebels who seek to overthrow her.
What do you think about this 19th Century English Gentlemen?
That's what I think too.
