A few weeks ago it was announced FOX would be reducing its order of episodes for “Minority Report” from 13 episodes to 10 episodes due to low ratings. This was done just prior to the cast of the show appearing as part of a panel discussion for the team was scheduled to participate at a panel discussion during New York Comic Con.  I couldnt imagine! What a gut-wrenching realization that would strike at the moral of any cast. Especially so for such a hopeful and imaginative endeavor. The Shadow League was down in front to bring our science fiction loving fan base the 411 from the mouths of the stars themselves.

Here they talk about everything from the reflective properties of the shows cast, the coolness of bring contemporary culture to an imaginary point 50 years in the future. The Shadow League was down in front to bring our science fiction loving fan base the 411 from the mouths of the stars themselves.

Meagan Good is wonderful as Detective Vega- a rough cop with a soft heart. She exists in a not-so-far future where precognitive abilities are scientific fact and were used to assist in investigating murder. But the program is shutdown when its realized that they were locking people up who hadnt even committed a crime yet.  But Vega has found a precog who is willing to use his gifts despite it being illegal.  

Sci-fi fans know the show is based on the 2002 Stephen Spielberg thriller starring Tom Cruise, but some may not realize it is being implied that the case that shut down precog in the first place was the movie version. That gives it extra cool quality in my book.  The aesthetics are smooth, sleek and second to none among television effects.


In addition to Good, cast members Stark Sands, Li Jun Li, Nick Vega, Wilmer Valderrama, and show runner Max Borenstein took part in a panel discussion at New York Comic Con and got thousands of fans excited about the future of the show. To be certain, the cast looked like a 80s ad for United Colors of Benneton clothing line, and it was a beautiful sight indeed. Don’t forget to check out “Minority Report” Sundays at 10pm on Fox.
