I recently got to the end of season one. I found it entertaining, though it gave me tonal whiplash. And Riley is the WORST. She's cute but completely useless.

I'm only interested if it has lots more naked Max Riemelt.

Hoo! That's one hot, hangin' man.

Netflix is planning to launch a porno streaming service called Beanflix?

I'm ok with this.

I assume they will change the name to Sense69.

Craw Fu: I assume they will change the name to Sense69.


Sense 61
(by the time you finish, you'll have 69)

Hell yes. I don't care who brings it back, as long as they do so. Sensa8 is one of my favorite shows of the past decade.

This could be the start of a trend. Yes, there are already porn parodies of lots of films and TV shows, but what if they picked up the rights (and even the cast) for Firefly? And think about spin-offs like the Companion Training schools, and just what does Kaylee get up to in the engine room when no-one's watching?

If they could pull it off with the original cast, that would be interesting.
Fortunately from what I've read, there will be a 2 hour special to wrap it all up.

They should do the third season of True Detective.  It might be better than season 2.

While we're wish listing, how about season 3 of Carnivale?

Makes sense, since the show was about 80% softcore porn anyhow.  And it only even really had a plot in the sense that a porn parody of an action movie has a plot.

Sound like it'd be a good fit, might actually improve the show to have a production company on the same page as the writers.

More like Sin Sate am I right?

Realistically, part of the fun of Sense 8 was the Tumblr Pride Parade Acronym salad of combinations among the cast. I don't see a studio that's comfortable making women in straight porn look great doing justice to gay or queer content, which is a big part of the appeal to a vocal contingent of the fans.

Even with high production value porn (PassionHD, Nubiles, MetArt Films), they're only a teeny tiny fraction of what Sense 8 was doing for cinematography, let alone the other components of production. How is a porn studio going to come up with an estimated $10M/episode?

Wouldn't take much to be better than S2.
Not sure why they did it but they really uglied-up Rachel McAdams, and motorcycle cop aays "i gotta get back on the road [to hide my latent homosexuality]". That's the episode that I was done with it.

There's nothing wrong with the idea in principle, but the branding strategy is off. People associate them with porn. It will be very difficult to promote a non-porn programme in a place viewers expect only porn.

To give you an idea of what I mean, look at this failed frozen food product from the 1980s.

There's nothing wrong with the food, but it couldn't sell with a name that people associate with toothpaste. Even if you know rationally that it's perfectly normal lasagne, you'll expect it to taste minty.

This is the same problem. On the other hand, if xhamster put it on a completely different site with a completely different name, using their finances and experience to build it, then they could well build a viable streaming service for mainstream video programming.

About 1 month of Live Jasmin pop understand?
