Yeah it's their terrible rebrand. I get why they wanted/ needed to rebrand. The channel needed it because they've strayed (thankfully) far from their Christian Broadcasting Network Family Channel roots and Pretty Little Liars, etc aren't exactly "Family" type entertainment. However, "Freeform," is a bit too open. It implies aimlessness rather than an actual brand or marketing demographic.

Anyway, didn't we talk about how C&D would never get made in another thread? Could be pretty good since it'll be a TV series and able to explore them and their mythos a bit more than a 2 hour movie. Seems like a solid move putting it on cable, too. It allows the show to be a bit more daring than ABC/ Broadcast but it doesn't need to be the gritty Netflix-type series either.

Yeah, Freeform is a fucking awful name. I barely remembered that it was the ABC Family rebrand, and I'm not sure why their rebranding "experts" didn't insist on keeping the ABC part just to tie it in to the existing base AND remind people what the fuck the damn channel is.

As for the show, it could be good.

I'm torn on this. I can see a Cloak and Dagger show being really good, but being on ABC Family/Freeform makes me hesitant to look forward to this.

Too many unknowns to set expectations. Did anyone catch the April Fools joke that nearly predicted this... it claimed She Hulk, Elektra, Bullseye and C&D were getting Netflix shows...

A She-Hulk show that had the same humor as the last She-Hulk comic would be fucking great.

The thing that concerns me is the budget on ABC Family shows. They've been cheap in the past.

Would Cloak and Daggers power set really need a lot of effects?

Yes. Certainly more than Daredevil, Punisher or Jessica Jones. I watched the pilot of two of their fantasy/ Sci if shows and the effects were so bad they were distracting.

Dagger would need to be at least creatively handled, weird light effects isn't easy to sell as a power.

We've seen enough good lighting effects now that bad ones stand out.

100% not interested in this. But I never liked the characters anyway.  If they don't chase the racial text (it's not subtext, even) out into the open and do something with it right away, they're toast.

The previews make this seem like something entirely different than the comics... something more akin to the Vampire Diaries than the drug twist tale of the sorta mutant pair... Regardless, I'll give it a shot and complain why they do not reference IW events.

Tonight is the premiere.  Reviews say the actors are good, but they spend a lot of time in setting up the story and you can't get a good feel for the quality of it off the starting episodes.    I'll watch it, but if you're not super into it, you might want to wait for the DVR to accumulate a few episodes and then consider binging to get to the meat, if it is there.

When she crossed over, she was just a ship. But when she came back... she was bullshit!

Watching the second hour worth now. The first...was not impressive.

EDIT: Second hour was a little better. Not great, but enough I'll look for it next week.

It exceeded my expectations.  I think they were trying to emulate the tone of Daredevil.

The characters are from the 80s. 

They switched them up a bit so that TV Tyronne is currently wealthy and TV Tandy is poor.
