Child's Play Television Series Lands at SyFy.

So this is disappointing. I don't know how they can do justice to the type of character Chucky is within the confines of a SyFy original series. This show really needs to be on a channel or streaming service that allows unfiltered content.

Well, I can say this much. Nick Antosca producing is a great sign. Channel Zero is a testament to that (even though SyFy just canceled it, which was a huge mistake because it was the best horror content they've ever made).

The one thing they may not be able to do very much is give Chucky his typical foul mouth.

Otherwise, I trust this way more than the reboot film MGM is putting out, given this is actually Don Mancini's thing and Brad Dourif is still going to be the voice of Chucky.

SyFy adapted one of my favorite comics, Deadly Class, for television and I initially thought there was no way it could happen. I'm very, very pleased with how it's turning out so far. With Mancini and Douriff on board I'm fairly optimistic.

I've actually heard that NBC now allows uncensored foul language on syfy and USA. I haven't watched either channel in a while, so I don't know to what extent this is true.

As for Mancini, I couldn't care less if he was attached. The franchise really went downhill once he started to take greater control of the franchise. Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky and Cult of Chucky were not very good movies and the best parts of Chucky, Mancini had nothing to do with. It was David Kirschner who came up with the concept of the soul of a disembodied serial killer, and it was Tom Holland who introduced the voodoo elements. Without those two, there would have been no "Charles Lee Ray."
