A CBS action/drama?  Well, this'll suck and feel like exactly every other CBS action/drama.

Also, what the fark is taking Cameron so long in releasing proper Blu-Rays of True Lies and The Abyss?  They've been done and ready to go for like four years now.  I'd rather have them than more Avater in theaters.

Too late now for the True Lies sequel where Eliza Dushku is the grown up daughter who finds out her parents are spies and hijinks ensue.

Not who I think of when they said Ginger Gazongas.

Always thought that would make a good series. Let's hope they don't blow it.

So they loosely based a series on the last five minutes of the movie.

People get paid for this?

I hope it follows only Bill Paxton's character around and is a dark comedy about his misadventures.

That scene is NOT hot, despite prime JLC.  As far as she knows, a villain is blackmailing her into that behavior... the fact that it's her husband and she doesn't know it doesn't make it any less creepy and rapey.

James Cameron does not do what James Cameron does for James Cameron. James Cameron does what James Cameron does because James Cameron is James Cameron.

Nothing can replicate the cinematic magic that made the original film so good: Tom Arnold, action hero.

Did anyone actually ask for this?
There's been so many similar shows...
Undercovers comes to mind and it lasted half a season.

It will involve none of the actors from the movie nor Jim.

So... it's gonna suck.

You do understand that all strippers (that she is imitating) are also not performing for the man they love. They are performing an act for another purpose. She is doing it to save her family and strippers are doing it because they want your money.

At least we dodge the Tom Arnold bullet.

And he was the best part of the movie. Which sucked, btw. No idea what version you all saw that was actually good. Unless you were born after, say, 1982. Because as a grown ass adult this thing was unbearably stupid.

I watched the first episode a couple of months ago during a survey. Don't waste you time.

No if you were an ass man you thought it was pretty good.

I just can't unsee Tony Curtis's (in drag) head on JLCs body. Every since like Halloween. She creeps me the hell out through absolutely no fault of her own. Her trainer absolutely deserved an Oscar for this flick however.

I'm intrigued, and will probably give it a watch. Though, to be honest, it feels like the premise of the show moves way too quickly into "wife finds out her husband is a spy" territory... There's a few opportunities in exploring "wife is unaware of her husband's international spy job"

Ok, THAT would be worth watching.
