    Hopefully there will be some creative kills in this series as opposed to the remake. I'd be down for some back story like his mom messed with the Necronomicon and his father did whatever. As long as the kills are badass (gruesome), I'm for it.

    I had been saying this to my friend for awhile now, that somebody's really missing the mark not releasing a fun Friday the 13th game. Crazy to think that for a series as enduring and popular as Friday, there's only been one NES game. The asymmetrical multiplayer could be a refreshing gameplay innovation going forward. Regardless, just happy to see a Friday game in the works. Now how about a new Freddy game too?

    I hope there will be some creativeness in the kills that can be performed by Jason (as opposed to that last Friday the 13th remake...yawn). Gimme Jason AND gimme death!

    Christ. Why are they over thinking this. It's not hard. Take a bunch of normal looking people (not Abercrombie & Fitch models) throw them in the fucking woods and have them killed off in interesting ways. Oh, and show it in a fucking movie theater, this TV series sounds like an embarassment.

    It could be cool. Sounds kind of like they are giving Jason the Rob Zombie's Halloween treatment and mixing it with New Nightmare. It could work or it could be horrible. Either way I'll be watching :D

    If it was anybody other than CW I'd give this idea 4 shows before cancellation, but they have a far lower bar for what is considered successful than any other network, it seems. The idea is completely terrible and I doubt they'll be able to handle the gore like AMC can. And you can just FORGET about any nudity.

    Vampire Diaries (arguably the flagship show) is pretty gory and not as teen-friendly as you might think. All of the characters drink, do drugs and kill people more often than not, in gruesome ways, so CW is actually an encouraging network to handle this.

    That being said, some shows on there DO warrant your skepticism. ;)

    I actually like the CW network. They have one of the best shows on TV (Supernatural) and its not exactly tame. So I don't have as much of an issue with that. But I do have an issue with the premise. The movies are "just movies" based loosely on the REAL Jason ? Sounds like one of the rejected Freddy vs Jason scripts. I dont want some "clever" Meta show. Of course I will watch no matter what, but my excitement is long gone now.

    I don't know why they are obsessed about using a "real" angle. It just doesn't sound good from that bit of information.

    I'm not sure how interested in the show I am. But, I will definitely defend CW as one of the best genre stations out there. Some may see it as a low bar, but all reports that I have read indicate that CW puts a lot of faith in the show creators and is very willing to let them run with whatever they want to do. Arrow, Flash, and, of course, Supernatural are all high water marks for me as far as genre TV goes. So, the show being on that network actually raises my interest higher than it would be if it was on any other network.

    And, yeah, as others have said "Hannibal" is quite excellent. In my opinion, it's the most interesting show since Twin Peaks aired.

    We've already got Bates Motel, Teen Wolf and Hannibal already showing. And the likes of Let the Right One In, Friday the 13th, Ash vs. Evil Dead and Scream in the works, I can only imagine we'll see plenty more of these kind of shows in the next couple of years.

    Personally I'd prefer a Seven-esque Elm Street show akin to the the prequel we never got.

    I think there's a lot more to explore there instead of expanding Jason into something the fans don't want - in order to fill a series!

    I wouldn't mind seeing Jason kick ass on a weekly basis. Count me in as interested this sounds very promising.
