Monkeys Fighting Robots

It seems that after helming episodes of both The Flash and Supergirl, geek-laureate Kevin Smith is jumping into another comic book based TV show, reports Deadline. This time its Spawn spin-off Sam and Twitch for BBC America.  Sam and Twitch was a gritty noir/crime series that had a popular run written by comic book superstar Brian Michael Bendis.

BBC America president and GM Sarah Barnett had this to say:

They were originally introduced in Spawn, and it’s Todd McFarlane’s comic book series about these big-city homicide detectives who face a series of super grizzly crimes that are connected to the occult. I bumped into Kevin Smith at Sundance and he is beyond himself excited about this, about the show

So what do you guys think? Personally, a Sam and Twitch show could be great, and BBC productions are usually high caliber (think Sherlock and Luther). I am excited. Tell us what you think and comment below!
