Steven Seagal’s New TV
Series Now Has A Trailer!!
I am – Hercules!!
58-year-old Steven Seagal can no longer outrun Elle Fanning, nor can he really lift his leg anymore, but as tough but tender TV cop Elijah Kane he’s still a bona fide action hero!
Will producers allow Kane to hook up with the character played by 28-year-old Sarah Lind (“The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”)?
G4 (or any other U.S. channel) has yet to pounce on Seagal’s first scripted TV series, “True Justice” (formerly “Southern Justice”), but producers have slapped together a hip-hop trailer for the project:

...but without the science fiction, fantasy, or horror plot, and settings.
Nov. 21, 2010, 4:48 p.m. CST
I'd be interested in checking it out. Seagal is hit and miss, but it does look better than crap like Hawaii 5-0 and the other "crime" shows that I see on tv right now.

...gets the "Walker: Texas Ranger" it deserves.

Turn down the music this part has words, ok turn it back up. Argh! Turn it back down they're talking again! Ok back up...down again, really loud for the big finish, now awkwardly pause it for one sentence aaaaand let it finish.

Why the hell didn't you bring Vern in on this one?

It's a cop show, starring Steven Seagal. Set in Seattle, the hometown of our justly revered Vern, the man who wrote the definitive book on Seagal's movie career ("Seagalogy: A Study Of The Ass-Kicking Films Of Steven Seagal"). Added to which, before becoming the astute writer & movie critic he is today, Vern did time. For *what* I don't know, but the man has a nefarious past.<P>Jesus H titty-fucking Christ... HOW hard would it have been to honor the man with a cameo appearance as a bad guy? They damn well better if this show extends beyond the first 13 episodes.

I saw Seagal's Latest movie effort. Written and produced by him. "Born to Raise Hell". It was absolute shit. This trailer reminds me a lot of that film. I'll probably check out the series anyway. You know, for a good laugh.
Nov. 21, 2010, 5:37 p.m. CST
You know, the Maxwell Lord guy from Smallville. Jeez, he's taking beatings everywhere!
Nov. 21, 2010, 6 p.m. CST
They have a county Sheriff's Department. Is Seagal a county cop?
Nov. 21, 2010, 6:11 p.m. CST
Come on, people. The economy isn't that fucking bad.
Nov. 21, 2010, 6:48 p.m. CST
I mean, he's fat as fuck...that ruins the suspension of disbelief to me( And yes, SAMMO HUNG is too...but h can move, and he is the real deal..so he doesn't count). Also, he is so wooden, he might as well be propped up against a wall at HOME DEPOT. I mean seriously...I liked his 80's movies too. But everything from 1992 and after, he's done is FUCKING GARBAGE
Nov. 21, 2010, 7:52 p.m. CST
However, the one hour format means it will avoid the kind of padding that plagues most of Seagal's DTV flicks. I'm guessing Seagal will actually bother to do his own ADR as well, which means no more voice dubbing.
Nov. 21, 2010, 8:38 p.m. CST
use dialogue in such awkward ways. Sure film trailers often stink too, but at least they tell you a little narrative, instead of random clips stuffed together. I hate when a film trailer gives away the story, but TV trailers just give me headache. <P> As for this, it may be a good cop thriller, but I got the sense that this is derivative of Michael Mann's Miami Vice film. It even aped several score tracks and stings.
Nov. 21, 2010, 9:01 p.m. CST
We get info on this steaming pile of horse crap, but still nothing on Lincoln. No talkback, no blurb, nothing. It's a fucking joke. WAKE UP! I'm sure you're embarrassed; or maybe not. You should be. POST SOMETHING....ANYTHING.....!!!
Nov. 21, 2010, 9:41 p.m. CST
while Seagal walks (waddles) the streets? <p> Anyway, Vern is too excited to talk. Seagal is back and this time he says, "I take it personal" (sic).
Nov. 21, 2010, 10:22 p.m. CST
not his movies. but i like him. if he had a regular tv drama like law and order or the shield i would watch.
Nov. 21, 2010, 10:49 p.m. CST
Speaking as a PACNW, it's fucking Seattle, not fucking Los Angeles...The crimes here are the price for a goddamn coffee, not "Narco" and Gun Running....if they saw that much action in Seattle, everyone in The Emerald City would drive their Prius into The Puget Sound
Nov. 22, 2010, 1:05 a.m. CST
I believe this is a first...I can't recall a trailer featuring spelling mistakes in it before. 'Die Tryng'?? Really??
Nov. 22, 2010, 2:12 a.m. CST
Kinda hilarious to see it portrayed as some super-dangerous crime zone. Would be cool if they shot at least some of the show here, although more likely its all shot in Vancouver. That trailer didn't look like Seattle in any way shape or form.
Nov. 22, 2010, 2:14 a.m. CST
1. When he kicked out the car window in the season 2 premiere of LAWMAN.<p> 2. In the video where he's training Lyoto Machida for his fight with Rampage Jackson<p> Okay, so he's not kicking very high, but he does still use a foot now and then. In all fairness he was never much of a kicker even in the skinny ABOVE THE LAW days.

I thought you meant the trailer he takes all the young, attractive PAs into between takes...

Hooray! A DTV review next please.
Nov. 22, 2010, 8:03 a.m. CST
To be fair, Seagal is an aikido expert... aikido is a grappling / throwing art, so it doesn't rely on kicking.

Sorry for that. I just wanted to say that lots of Vern goodness is readable at outlawvern.com.

I mean...seriously? When Harry puts some obscure European softcore porn into his weekly DVD column, I can somehow understand it. Well, not really, but it's excusable with the all-kinds-of-movie-geek-defense. But Girls Gone Wild? WTF is up with that?<br> I'm not trying to play mr moral here, because we all masturbate to porn and I don't care, but can you please explain the purpose of advertising shit like Girls Gone Wild on AICN? This is even by your standards low. What's next? A link to the BangBros website? Like I said, we all jerk off to porn, but advertise it where it belongs!
Nov. 22, 2010, 8:48 a.m. CST
like Girls Gone Wild on AICN?"<br /> <p>a bit of oxymoron there dont you think?
Nov. 22, 2010, 11:34 a.m. CST
too late (sort of)<p>Harry, in his review of The Middle Men, linked to youporn. It's not that he simply mentions the site, but actually created a link to it. I was certain, on seeing that link, it would turn out to be some kind of gag; expected to be redirected to Harry's wiki page or a Rick Astley video. Nope, it was Harry pimping for a porn site.
Nov. 22, 2010, 11:40 a.m. CST
This is by far the most boring trailer for a TV series I've ever seen! I can't believe that someone really produced this piece of effing [bleep].
Nov. 22, 2010, 12:14 p.m. CST
this would have worked, but not now. There is no way this is picked up unless some network exec thinks they could use it in a slot running against Sons of Anarchy. But I doubt it, and it can't compete with SOA, obviously. IMHO

You could say "Nobody listens nowadays" or "Nobody listens anymore" but what Seagal says is redundant. That's all I'm going to criticize. Anything else is like shooting fish in a barrel. Really fat fish. In a little barrel.
Nov. 22, 2010, 12:21 p.m. CST
Does Stevie acutally chase perps on foot?(Imagine that shit.)But to his credit, he was good in Machete and the fucker actually got killed off for once.
Nov. 22, 2010, 3:23 p.m. CST
TNT or Spike should pick it up. The play all of his movies anyway.
Nov. 22, 2010, 3:24 p.m. CST
Is Seattle that mean of a city? I thought it was just full of potheads who like alternative music and coffee.
Nov. 22, 2010, 3:45 p.m. CST
Nov. 22, 2010, 4:24 p.m. CST
its offensive to my people.
Nov. 22, 2010, 4:34 p.m. CST
A little too much of that makeup Mr. Seagal

by Leafy McPlantsalot
ly terrible. WOW. so funny!!! no cliches missed. You could get killed. It's my job. I'm pregnant. HAHAHAHAHAHA awesome. What I liked most about the trailer is that it felt two minutes longer than necessary and had no narrative floor. KUDOS!!!
Nov. 22, 2010, 5:22 p.m. CST
Why are there Sheriff's Deputies in the city limits? Do the producers think that Seattle is some hick one streetlight town with no Police Department? King County is a big area. Shouldn't they be prowling the mean streets of North Bend or Skykomish, catching speeders?
Nov. 22, 2010, 9:51 p.m. CST
He's a real life superhero on A&E, so why not a special effects body double hero! Still, I'll watch it, just like the rest of you guys. If only Seagal would lose about 100lbs, that would be something to see.
Nov. 22, 2010, 10:47 p.m. CST
thats pretty much all it took for me to say "Okay. That's enough."
Nov. 22, 2010, 11:01 p.m. CST
IN THE FOREIGN LEGION (maybe Eugene Levy as Bud). At least a TV spin-off would draw a better chance at scoring a sponsor. As for Herc, he's pimping for Nancy Pelosi (flushing your tax dollars down the crapper for her own travel extravagance) and racist Harry Reid.

"PHOENIX (CBS/AP) If it were a reality show, it could be called "Rounding Up Immigrants with the Stars." Catchy, huh? Actually, it's the real deal: a posse to crack down on illegal immigrants, organized by Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County in Arizona, and whose number includes the actor-bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno (aka "The Incredible Hulk"), action-film star Steven Seagal, and actor Peter Lupus formerly of TV's "Mission: Impossible." In all, 56 members of the posse were sworn-in at a ceremony on Wednesday, although Seagal and Lupus did not attend. What exactly will this Hollywood-heavy posse be doing to crackdown on illegals? Arpaio says the volunteers' duties include bringing arrestees to jail, and handling demonstrators who interfere with immigration patrols. "Arizona is the busiest port of entry for people being smuggled in from Mexico, Latin and South America. So asking for the public's help in this endeavor makes sense, especially given the success the posses have experienced over the years," Arpaio told CBS affiliate KPHO. Arpaio has sworn-in similar posses since taking office in 1993, with membership having grown to nearly 3,000. "Law enforcement budgets are being cut and agencies are losing personnel and yet the battle to stop illegal immigration must continue," Arpaio told the station. The self-styled "America's Toughest Sheriff" told KPHO, "My ultimate goal with the creation of this newest posse is to catch and jail as many illegal immigrants coming into this county and to apprehend those who are illegally living and working here already." Others who were "posse-tized" by Arapaio include pilots, attorneys, former law enforcement or military members, truckers, business owners, computer programmers, financial advisers and real estate experts. Ferrigno, best known for his starring role in "The Incredible Hulk" television series, lives in California. He says the volunteers have a job to do to help protect the country against drug and immigrant smugglers. "I must warn you that we are in for a rude awakening, because this country right now is in a lot of danger," Ferrigno said at the ceremony Wednesday. Stay tuned."

A couple of years back. You know, you see people like him in movies and on television, and it really doesn't hit you just how huge and massive they are. Good lord, the man was like a walking mountain. Nice, though.

the tagline "...risk it all or die trying" didn't have the misspelled word. Pause the vid. "Trying" is spelled wrong. Loses credibility. Also Seagal's hairline and fatness hinders the credibility. But mostly the misspelling.
Nov. 24, 2010, 11:51 a.m. CST
empower morons like Seagal. you are what you eat, culturally. can't we do better after all these years of evolution?

If you removed the talkbacks for 10 hours, this site would go away and never, ever return. Not one single person reads this site - they read the headlines, skim the first paragraph, and then hit the talkback.<p> why?<p> Because everything above the talkback is just nonsense and idiocy.

In Vancouver. At street level it looks just like Seattle and its always raining. They then will splice in shots of Seattle land marks. usually how it works.
