I am a little surprised there is no apprehension on Jared being the sole lead in a new show based on his problematic history with addiction and other issues. I thought that it had caused a few delays or issues filming Supernatural over the years but maybe not. He must have enough goodwill built at the network.

Really waiting for that Kung-Fu reboot, it could either suck or be totally amazing.

I doubt anyone would do one because of Warrior on Cinemax. It uses the same plot as Kung Fu which was originally conceived by Bruce Lee.

The Kung Fu reboot is currently filming in Canada right now. It airs on The CW in 2021.

I did not know that. Now I am interested since. Is it starring an actual half Asian actor?

Edit: Did a search. Sounds lame but I am still curious. Maybe it's the title and saying it's a reboot that makes it sound stupid. Plot is different.

How many are aware that Walker Texas Ranger and Early Edition take place in the same TV universe? Their connection is the series Martial Law.

Seems like the Riggs storyline from TV Lethal Weapon.

The original show was so damn dumb. But I'll give this a chance.

I highly doubt it. I know he's given his blessing to this new version, but he's 80 years old. His last acting job was appearing in the series finale of Hawaii Five-O last year, but that took a lot of nudging from the producers to get him to do it.

If anything, this show is shooting in Texas and Chuck lives in Texas.

Surprised no one has responded since it aired last night. Walker's pilot had a couple rough edges, but generally I liked the premise and entire cast. Looks like a decent mix of veteran character actors (loved seeing Skinner playing Walker's dad) and newcomers.

I plan to give this show a long leash so the CW has most of the season to reel me in.
