Default Netflix to greenlight Judge Dredd TV series!

Sure, this may be a thread for Batty and me alone, but rather than clog up my soon-to-be-revived album thread with details on it as we have been doing, anyone who wants to discuss the coming of 2000AD's finest lawman to the small screen in around 2019 we can do so here. I know I'm as excited as a very excited person who has a very special reason to be excited!

Judge Dredd: Mega-City One TV series on Netflix starring Karl Urban

ANYWAYS... so, TH, assuming they'll be adapting actual Dredd storylines and not just doing their own thing, how do you think they should start? I mean Block Madness and The Apocalypse War are a full season thing and would need at least a season or two of introducing the characters and world before they would have the impact they should. The Cursed Earth is amazing, but it's just so nonsensical at times that it's something they should ease themselves into maybe mid-season or end-of-season or something, and I'd say it would be better to hold off for a season anyway.

I'm not at all familiar enough with Dredd to recommend anything, but clearly something that's Mega City One-centric and explores the basics would make the only amount of sense, but those stories are so scattershot that I don't think I've stumbled upon that story yet. I think something like The Hotdog Run would be good for late-early season/early-late season since, while it is about the Cursed Earth and not Mega City One, it's a good intro to the outside world and really sells the idea of just what the Judges are and what is expected of them. Drives home the idea that they're a new age Aryan race and that's pretty important. First Dredd story I ever loved btw.

The first epic Dredd story was Robot Wars, with Call-Me-Kenneth leading all the robots to revolution against their human masters, and I think that could play well in this era of blockbuster robot/transformer-style movies, and would also set the scene for later events, so maybe they ought to look at that. You're right that TCE would be amazing but you'd want to be maybe a season or two in (dare we hope?) before tackling anything like that.

Haven't read the Robot Wars, but with a series called Mega-City One you'd expect it to at least start with something archetypal about Mega-City One, the Judges, and what the dynamic of the world is. It's going to be introducing the entire concept of Judge Dredd to a lot of people who at most may have seen the Stallone movie so it's going to have to build the mythology from the ground up.

Yeah, giving it a bit more thought now I'd hope they'd follow generally the comic, with say most of season one just "on-the-street" stories that, as you say, introduce Dredd and the concept of the Judges, Mega-City One and so forth, then at the end of season 1 run into the Robot Wars.

Season 2 should then cover that and then later Block War which would lead into

Season 3 The Apocalypse War (cos you know why)

Season 4 they might be able to go Cursed Earth on that bitch then

Season 5 introduces the Dark Judges

In between they could have standalone eps like The Fatties, The New You Face Parlor, Hot Dog Run, Mutants (introducing the Cursed Earth), Angel Gang and so on.

You don't think season 2 should cover The Cursed Earth? Season 1 should be all about actual Mega-City One and everything about how it operates, with glimpses of the outside world for world-building, but after that I think Cursed Earth would be a perfect way to then do everything beyond the walls. And then season 3 being Block War/Apocalypse War?

But there isn't a definitive storyline that fleshes out Mega-City One? Even a later arc? Or is it really just all about the single stories for that?

I guess there are several ways it could go. Dredd was always (probably still is) an evolving story, with more either being introduced or maybe even thought up to fill in gaps as it went along. I mean, the Cursed Earth was only vaguely referred to as some sort of radioactive desert originally, then one of the first ten or so stories featured some mutants being tracked there by Dredd, and then Wagner obviously had the idea of expanding that into a real epic, god bless him. So there's probably no real set storyline per se, but I could see the main epics (TCE/Judge Child/Day the Law Died/Block War/Apocalypse War/Dark Judges etc) all more or less following in some kind of sequence.
