David Goyer Talks Second Season, DVD, and More

Reader Denise sent in a link to this interview with David Goyer. It's a great article where Goyer talks about the ratings, the DVD, the status of a second season, and a few other goodies.

From the interview:
Interviewer: OK, let's talk about that. What is the status of a potential second season at this point?

Goyer: It is legitimately on the bubble. It's gotten decent ratings, although we were hoping they'd be better, but the other issue is Spike had no clear idea of what to expect. In terms of scripted material, they're really a new network and nobody ever came to Spike for scripted material before. It's kind of like the wild west right now. We've been in discussions and I think it could honestly go either way.

I've actually been shocked how good the reviews of the show have been, by and large. They've been better than the movies, which surprises me because I thought we'd be just killed by the press, but they generally like it.

So, as you can see, there's definitely talk of a DVD and the second season is still up in the air. Like Goyer, I'm constantly surprised by the good press the show has been getting. Shows like Blade: The Series are often either panned by the press or just completely overlooked. It'd be nice if the ratings reflected the reviews a bit more, but at least they are climbing.

Also from the interview:
Interviewer: What can you tell us about this final three-part storyline?

Goyer: We did some things that people might not have thought we would do. We definitely went for it. It's big! Somebody mentioned in one of the reviews that he liked the fact that you get the sense that almost anyone could be killed at any time in this show, which we've tried really hard to do. All I can say is nothing is sacred and nobody is safe.

Looks like that poll we just had about possible character deaths may be spot on. Goyer makes it sound like we may be seeing a few different characters bite the big one. Maybe I should change my vote from nobody to everybody...

The interview has a bunch of other great details such as Spike TV's thoughts on the series and future Goyer projects. If you missed the link above, here it is again. Thanks again to Denise for the heads up!
