Will people be watching this new show?

According to Sky, "Sky Atlantic are delighted to premiere new HBO drama The Biscuit and The Bike Season 1 from 30 July. All 32 episodes will air here first".

The series tells the story of a biscuit (Denholm Elliot) who befriends a bicycle (Alicia Silverstone) and they begin to plot a crime spree together. However, one of them is a snitch to the Feds although which one is never revealed.

Later episodes involve time travel and aliens.

So will people be watching this?

Of course, it's a remake of the superior French drama, La Custard Créme et La Bicyclette which attracted over 5 viewers weekly when it was shown on BBC4 recently. There are lots of concerns that the Americans will dumb it down, for example, replace all the dialogue with crude hand gestures. Remains to be seen.

The bicycle doesn't have hands however. It has handlebars instead.

Damn it, I thought Summer Glau was signed up to play the bike. I hope Alicia can carry it off.

Actually, a lot of conservative US critics are complaining about the volume of gratuitous lesbian sex in the show. I didn't think it would be a big part of the show but apparently it's in every second scene. Tons of scissoring and lesbian fisting.

Well I hear Merryl Streep was the first choice so they were always on to a loser when she pulled out!

Summer Glau was tempted away after she was cast in the lead of The Girl With The Glistening Tits.

Is it true that the mid season finale is gonna have the biscuit at the mercy of an evil ravenous child?

Have you read the books? In the books, there's no bicycle at all, just a biscuit. Well at least up to book 7, I haven't read the eighth instalment yet. Purists are giving out but I think the addition of the bike is great. It just makes the story a lot more interesting and less completely bicuit-y.

I heard it was going to be more of a soggy biscuit scenario...
