'The Purge' on USA

"Dude, it's so weird you bring that up. Yes! Not an anthology... I guess kind of an anthology -- more of an interwoven anthology. They came to me about a TV show, my idea is that you do six or seven storylines. And I would kind of intercut them, use flashbacks."

"The idea of why I like the idea of a maybe 10 hour TV thing on this, the one thing you really can't do on the films is, just because of mere real estate and time, is you can't get into the nuance and complexity that would drive someone to commit a terrible act on this night. Whether it's revenge or out of passion, but what might be interesting in a TV show is with a flashback narrative, if you start on Purge Night but you go back to show how people have gotten to where they are. Where you see a couple that's gone haywire on this night, but let's show everything that's led up to this moment of a husband trying to kill a wife -- the cheating or the accusations of cheating or money problems. It will be interesting to show those arcs, those dramatic and complex arcs that get people to where they pick up a gun or a knife and kill someone else. I think there's something cool that we can do with the real estate of TV -- 10 hours, potentially."

Not a show for me. I haven't seen any of the movies and wouldn't be interested in the show. Are the movies scary or gore porn? Trying to figure out if this could work on cable TV or if it would need to be on a premium channel

They aren't scary at all.

They are purely thrillers. The 1st one is barely anything. The second one isa gun movie. The third on is just bad.

Rick and Morty did it better on twenty minutes than they did in five hours

But just imagine what they can do with 10 hours!

As most people here know, I think the Purge franchise sounds dum and I am not watching any of them. That being said, how well would a gore pr0n movie work as a USA channel show?

I really don't remember any of them being that gory at all to be honest. There were scenes sure, but I think it could work. It depends on who they focus on.

I've only seen the original Purge movie and thought it was dumb. Won't be checking this out.

‘The Purge’ Comes to TV—Darker, Freakier, and Better Than the Movies
USA’s new ‘Purge’ TV show is faster-paced, more diverse and more pointed in its critique of American bloodlust than its cinematic counterparts
