So, we're watching the Toy Story movies on ABC Family tonight (nothing else on), and I keep seeing previews for a new show on ABC (or possibly ABC family, it's not clear) starting in October. I noticed something in all the previews that looked very, very familiar.

Check out the preview video on this website and tell me if you're seeing what I"m seeing - the black clad, black haired sword fighting figure approx. 1:35 in.

Is there something about his head that is familiar?

I'm struck by how much that castle looks like Farquwa (I'm remembering the right name aren't I?).

And his head looks like Cain's.

The one with the long, black, dreaded hair? You didn't notice the bright silver, zipper-like line down the middle of his scalp?

And the 'evil' woman in the fairytale shots looks like Azkadellia a bit, too. :D

(And it was Finaqua - and yes! Now that you mention it, it does!)

Oh no, I was looking at the one that got stabbed with the sword.

She does! All she needs is a sparkly disco ball dress.

....I'm just going to stare at all this. With interest. With intense interest.

I KNOW, RIGHT? I was a little bit like, WHAH? (zipperhead, Finaqua, AZ...pretty much Tin Man w/ swords)

It looks like there are two (or several) black-clad zipperheads. No?

This thing looks pretty intriguing...

Ooh! Fascinating! I only caught the one, but it's possible!

It does, actually - very much in the recent trend of modernizing old fantasy/fairy tale stories.

I was struck by how much the evil queen looked like Az and it looked like they were bikers with swords, with all the leather and zippers. I may watch the first episode just out of morbid curiosity.

*nodnod* Pretty much, yeah. Take a count of how many things they ripped off from Tin Man. :D

Hmmm... intriguing. I may tune in. :)

Heee! At first I was mostly, "THEY STOLE GLITCH." Now it has kinda morphed into, "let's tune in and see what else they ripped off from Tin Man."

I agree with [livejournal.com profile] stephantom, it looks like there are multiple dreadlocked zippers going on there. Maybe they're the evil minions? It could be a crossoverish explanation for what happened to the other hypothetical punishment-by-debraining people.

There's definitely a lot of familiar elements in this, either from Tin Man or 10th Kingdom. Doesn't mean I won't watch it though! Thanks for the heads up!

From: [identity profile] surranndie.livejournal.com


Oooh, yeah! If it has any of the qualities that made Tin Man and 10th Kingdom awesome, it might turn out to be a decent show! We'll definitely be watching it when it starts, anyway. :)

So glad you pointed out the zipperheads, because I didn't even spot them the first time through and I was LOOKING for them! I would never have noticed them if you hadn't put me on the alert. I managed to see them the second time through. I AM PSYCHED!!!!

From: [identity profile] surranndie.livejournal.com


I know, right? ZIPPERHEADS! Naturally, it was the only thing that really caught my attention...*grin* It shall be something to look forward to!
