So its four days of Easter holidays here in South Africa/Johannesburg. Perfect for getting a few games of Arkham Horror underway, with a splash of Innsmouth, Kingport or Dunwich….. Had a good game yesterday with some friends. Over dinner we discussed the game, and all the 'what if's'…… One topic that was raised, and discussed at length was the need for an Arkham Horror TV Series. At first we thought a updated movie, but there are just so many potential stories, locations, characters, topics, etc, etc, so we thought an ongoing tv seies within the town of Arkham. The series would need:
1. good actors
2. a good director
3. a good writer
The idea is a good series, where each episode is a story within itself, possibly 60minutes long, with overlapping locations and characters from one week to the next, with visits to Dunwich, Kingsport and Innsmouth from time to time. A good director and writer so that its ensured a good series is created, capturing the true essence of the game and the mythos. unlike the tv series Eureka, that started with a bang, and soon went into the toilet (as with so many potentially good tv series…….). It made for interesting conversation. Tomorrow, its AH with Kingsport and Black Goat in the Woods…….. and more discussions……..
Let me know your thoughts on an Arkham Horror tv series…..
