Tarzan on The WB

What are your thoughts and predictions about this? I think it's going to be a hit or miss show. People will either love it, or hate it. However "Tarzan" wasn't that big of a "superhero" (from what I remember), so I don't think it'll be another Smallville.

To be honest, I'm not even going to bother watching. I hate to pass judgment on a show before I even watch it, but it's just not that appealing to me.

Are they going to make it a no outfit/ no powers piece of crap like they did with smallville and will do with The Flash? Think about it, they could set it before tarzan became tarzan. fill it with teenage angst and some hot jungle women and pump in a bit of drama. it will sell like crazy!

Smallville has "no powers"

bkwrm, I like the way you think.

Aside from the potential for hot WB chickage, I've seen nothing about this show that has me even remotely interested.

Jackskeleton: From what I've seen it's going to take place in a city rather than the jungle.

The WB Halts Production on 'Tarzan'
By Brian Ford Sullivan


CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- The WB has told the producers of its new fall drama "Tarzan" to take a break as production has been halted on the series after eight episodes.

The show will however remain on the network's schedule for the remainder of November sweeps as three installments have yet to air. WB executives will then decide the show's fate after seeing the numbers for those episodes. Through its five airings this season, "Tarzan" has averaged a disappointing 1.7 rating/4 share in adults 18-49 and 3.9 million viewers overall.

Meanwhile in other WB news, production still has yet to begin on the network's midseason drama "Fearless." The series was originally targeted for a fall start however casting and other issues pushed the drama to midseason. WB executives nevertheless are hopeful that they can get the show on the air by the spring.

As for the WB's other new series, various industry insiders say decisions about newcomers "Steve Harvey's Big Time," "Run of the House," "Like Family" and "All About the Andersons" are expected to be made next week.

I stopped watching after only two episodes. If WB cares about Tarzan, then just put out Legend of Greystoke on DVD already.
