And it sounds good! So, that’s good!
Magicians and con men who fight Hitler? So, basically, Job Bluth, Nazi Hunter? I like it.
Now they have to find an adorable little bat for Franklin.
its GOB Bluth, like “Go buy us a cup of coffee!”
I’ve made a huge mistake.
TAKE THAT HITLER!
Will this solve the going back in time thing to kill Hitler?
Somehow I get the feeling “Put a Nazi in it” is the new “Put a bird on it.”
It’s telling that I read too much about world war II and magicians because I know exactly where he is drawing his inspiration.
“FLW, you read about WWII AND Magicians? Swoon.” — Single ladies everywhere.
Magicians and Hitler you say??
I saw Hobgoblin and assumed it was a spiderman show. But it’s not a spiderman show. What’s the point of doing anything in media if it isn’t about spiderman?!
Oh, but if you do a Spider-Man show about Hobgoblin, you”ll have to determine if you want to do Ned Leeds from the original storyline, or the Roderick Kingsley ret-con, or the recent Phil Urich hobgoblin and it’s just going to make some comic book geek upset if you don’t mention Jack O’ Lantern’s eventual transformation into Demogoblin post-Inferno. I say just make it about con men and magicians fighting Nazis. It’s easier that way.
I was hoping for a Wire-like adaptation of The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, but this sounds like a fleshed-out show reminiscent of The Escapist from Kavalier and Clay.
Rumor is that the Coen Bros have the rights to Yiddish Policeman’s Union for a movie, which will be magnificent.
They forgot to add: someone jewish and someone who is homosexual. OR someone who is jewish AND homosexual.
Given HBO’s tendency to blur the lines of ‘good’ and ‘bad’, I’m really interested to see how they handle Nazis.
Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman are creating a show together? Sounds pretty cool.
I’m really looking forward to the teacherman and Baby Friday project about English literature being translated into Spanish, though.
So THAT’S what The Cape was missing; Hitler.
This sounds good, but I was hoping for something “Kavalier and Clay”-related
I’ve wanted a Kavalier and Clay miniseries since forever, but honestly, magicians v. nazis is about the only logline behind that link that could make me think, “well, that works too.”
It’s not TV — it’s magic and nazis.
Do the magicians and con men time travel? to go back in time and KILL HITLER?
