This was back around 2008.
    That is not edition warring. That is promoting your own product over a competitor.

    The team involved has a lot of talent and past successes. So I am cautiously optimistic.


    I wonder if this will start with just a VtM type of show before moving on to others. If some VtM show makes money, then maybe the producers will feel like risking money on a WtA or MtAs show. VtM is the easier to get your head around, and could serve as an entry point for the larger WoD.

    Anyhow, It would actually be a problem to set it in the V5 timeline. You'd miss too much and it'd be too hard to follow. You've gotta build the Tremere up before you blow them up.
    I don’t think the old Kindred: The Embraced show actually included the Tremere at all, in fact. Anyway, you don’t need to provide exposition for the entire VTM background in the first episode, so no, you don’t need to build up any Clan or individual vampire in order to have them represented in their current situation in a TV show.

    Let's be fair. When the first and main thing that the writer mention is "inclusivity", you know that we'll have a mediocre show at best.

    My best hope would be HBO proper to really go for it with an authentic feel, I'd have less hope for Netflix, though Emily in Paris was really good and they continued Cobra Kai and the Last Kingdome well when they picked them up. Hulu I doubt I'd watch it. Network TV would just be waisted potential, maybe the station that did Justified would pull off something but I would have really low expectations.

    Acting usually comes down to casting unless the whole cast is bad, then I blame the director. I don't think a vampire show needs a terribly large budget. The writing will be the biggest factor to me, and I really hope they don't run it into the ground with flashbacks ala Angel or Arrow if you don't mind the mixed genre reference.

    Let us hope that the show is actually good!

    Let us also hope that there are more than one fifth edition WoD game to speak of before the first show airs.

    Well in Orpheus you can include the living. I honestly think Exalted would be easier to film than Wraith.

    Werewolf is about complicated moral choices about how to conduct an asymmetrical war, thank you very much. ^VVVVVVVV^
