Oddly enough, I happened upon the latest trailer for the ABC series of “Castle”, which has Steampunk-esque subtext to it, from Miss Zoe Connolly’s excellent SL blog. Not quite sure what to make of it, but I do sense a bit of condensation towards the genre in this production (e.g. the “weird” and “wild” leaders in the trailer). The fact that this show has been “in the pipeline” seems to be fairly well known in Steampunk circles, but again, as with the Warrior’s Way endeavor, I suppose one will have to wait until it is aired to pass judgement.
Still, it does provide a bit more exposure for the Steampunk genre, be it good or bad (though I’m not counting on much good from ABC, however)!
