Evil Episodes Podcast: Episode #64 A Little About A Lot

Don’t touch that Dial. Your Horror TV Fix is back!

 It’s Evil Episodes Podcast #64
 
It took 64 episodes for it to happen but we finally made it to a sort of “from the hip” episode. Due to all sorts of scheduling and last minute changes, we all managed to watch some but not all of the programs for this episode. It’s a real mix & match.  Don’t take that to mean this a throw-a-way episode, indeed not. We actually have quite the discussion on a few things Mike watched, Never Sleep Again, World War Z (finally), and Wolf Creek 2. As well as the return of True Blood, a side rant on Weeds with a bonus comparison of Nancy Botwin & Sookie Stackhouse, all kicked off with perhaps the shortest news segment yet. We also attempt to discuss The Returned but circumstances of life cut that conversation short.  Listen on to hear what the first episode recorded mostly on the fly sounds like. Overall, not bad if I may say so!
You can contact the show via email at evilepisodespodcast@hotmail.com or via the brand new voicemail line at 760-661-7384 We appreciate any and all feedback!

A&E adds to their horror genre lineup with an American remake of THE RETURNED

The Returned, a French “zombie” horror-drama that aired on IFC earlier this year. One in which my DVR decided to stop recording for reasons unknown, but which is now on netflix for me to watch-a-thon out at anytime, (Yessss) is getting an American remake on A&E which already is home to Bates Motel & Those Who Kill (well, kind of).  Horror and Horror-lite seems to be a pretty hot commodity on television at the moment, whether it is airing on network tv,  basic cable, or even premium networks.

From IMDB

“A&E is investing in The Returned. The cable network has picked up its take on the French zombie drama straight to series with a 10-episode pickup, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Bates Motel co-showrunner Carlton Cuse will oversee the production alongside Raelle Tucker (True Blood). Cuse penned the first episode and he and Tucker will write and exec produce the series together. Casting will begin immediately on the series, a co-production of A+E Studios and FremantleMedia North America. Production will begin in the summer.

The above shall be known as “The Returned” when it makes it’s American remake debut on A&E

Production is set to begin this Summer……more details to be revealed when available!

The Returned will have me returning to netflix marathoning….

So, awhile back on the podcast we talked briefly about a  french tv show called The Returned that was going to start airing on IFC.  Season 1 came and went without most anyone watching it.  I had it set to record on the DVR but for some reason it decided not to….luckily,  like many other series The Returned has found it’s way onto netflix so I will be checking it out very soon.  For those unfamiliar or that forgot what this was about check out the trailer below…

This has been getting rave reviews from a ton of media outlets.  Expect a discussion/review on this series sometime in the next few episodes!
