A while back, I took a shit on the planned ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ TV show;
“It’s the dreaded ‘Lets make it a TV show with the protagonists’ son’ news that all movie franchises dread, and have the main guy only appear in a cameo. The show will get a pilot on CBS (Ah, shit), Axel Foley will now be Aaron Foley, played by Brandon T. Jackson. Who? My thoughts exactly. Expect the Fresh Prince of Beverly Hills (pic), without the laughs. Mark my words, after the pilot stinks out living rooms there’ll be debate on whether to even air ‘Season 1’ at all.”
Turns out that not only do they not want the TV show/series one, they don’t even want the pilot: “The pilot episode for Eddie Murphy’s TV show Beverly Hills Cop has been rejected by US TV Network CBS”. Pwned. This is good news, because the worst thing that could’ve happened would’ve been that nobody/chump replacing Axel Foley. This, hopefully, will force them to go back to the drawing board. Hopefully a movie. Even a Brett Ratner sequel would be better than this shit. Eddie Murphy’s career, at least in terms of quality, has been in the shitter since 1998. Metro was his last good movie. He needs a ‘Rambo (2008)’.
