Scream was actually made by MTV, and did super poorly. I liked the movies, back in the day, but heard so many bad things I skipped the TV show. I'm honestly kind of regretting that now though. I still curious. How was it?
I've seen the pilot. I'm not sure why I clicked on it since I hate the misogyny of the plot centering around (to begin with) a woman's grisly murder. I kept watching though. I didn't like the way they made the initial victim out to be a bad person, as though that justified what happened to her. Also, it's kind of lame that the high school kids all look about 30. They used to do that with a lot of US shows, but it's perfectly possible to cast teenage actors to play teenagers, like they do in Degrassi. The concept of seeing whether a slasher plot can work for a series as opposed to a film is intriguing, though so far the execution seems to be a bit hamfisted. Maybe it will improve after the pilot. Not sure if I will continue watching though, with so many better shows out there.
