Push TV show to hammer final nail in Heroes' coffin

Jan. 19, 2010by:

There were actually many things I liked about PUSH, the stylish supernatural tale of power-infused humans banding together to fight other power-infused humans. I thought the casting was great, the visuals were excellent, and the overall concept seemed original when it really shouldn’t have at all.

That being said, I thought the film was horrendously organized, and the overall plot made little no to sense, as if they were setting up for a sequel that we all knew was never coming. Well, now it seems that the PUSH storyline might be extending much, much further than any of us anticipated. WATCHMEN and X-MEN screenwriter David Hayer is writing a pilot for a TV show set in the PUSH universe. Summit explains:

“The concept behind the Push feature film offers a broad and rich canvas on which to extend the storyline and characters introduced in the feature film,” said Summit Co-Chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger. “The project is also the perfect vehicle to initiate Summit’s plans of producing programming for the global television marketplace. The opportunity to do this with our trusted partners at E1 re-enforces that this is the right opportunity to grow Summit’s platform.”

As I implied in the title, with “Heroes” teetering on the edge of both sanity and cancellation for some time now, I think if done correctly, “Push” will slide right in to a network (I hear NBC has five hours to fill) and satiate our need for a superpowered TV show. Don’t get me started on “Smallville.”

Extra Tidbit: I tried "The 4400." Couldn't really get into it.

The movie had a good premise but moved painfully slow. For the TV series to survuve it would have to have a far more intriguing premise and a bit more action, plus a decent budget. Otherwise, it won't last past one season.

Meh, the movie was all too predicable, but worth the watch that one time. As for Heroes, I watch it every week and haven't missed a beat and am amazed at how well they've structured the story, Those who used to watch Heroes and stopped, probably did so during the writers strike which just goes to show the attention span of the average boobtube viewer. If you look at all of NBC's numbers, Heroes is still the top-rated drama on the network (and also still one of the top 5 shows of all broadcast

By your powers combined?

I've always wondered why they didn't combine the universes of 'Push' and 'Jumper'. I think that could be a pretty cool little combo.

Oh yeah, "Smallville" sucks.

I liked "Push," and I'll gladly see a series if they do it justice.

I liked Push. After watching the film, I felt as if the movie was a double length episode of a television show.

Plus, I trust Solid Snake.

Nice

I don't understand why so many of you guys hated it. It was fun and a hell of a lot better than Heroes. The story was pretty open ended so the TV show could stay fresh for a while.

Heroes will live on.

Heroes actually is getting a fifth season. I recently read that Kring had a meeting with NBC about the story for it.


And Push was a terrible movie.

Push was actually pretty cool. Maybe you should crack your head open on your kitchen floor to prove to us you have brains.

Still watching Heroes (and now that Claire is going lesbo, I'm even more engaged).

Push was stupid...no desire to see that on TV...got Heroes and LOST already for my SciFi fixes.

Push ripped off sooooo much...

...but most noticeably, the X-Files episode called "Pusher."

Pass.

Stupid.

The movie "Push" sucked. I bought it and kept falling asleep and I am still not interested in finishing the movie. By the way "Heroes" is a show I have given up on a LONG time ago. I mean season 1 was good but after that it all went downhill. The only positive to come from that show is Zachary Quinto aka Sylar.

Snaaaake

Love Hayter, who is also known as his role as the iconic role of Solid Snake. Anyway I'll check this out for sure.
