Childhood's End trailer on EW.com

http://www.ew.com/article/2015/05/14...-syfy-trailer?

I don't know about this... Granted Clarke's book is somewhat dated, and kinda slow in places, but this makes it look like a horror/thriller rather than the intelligent thought provoking story it is.

It also looks like it all takes place in current times rather than the span of time the book does.

SyFy was pushing the show pretty hard during the season finales of Helix and 12 Monkeys. The promo they showed had Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister from GoT) sitting in civvies explaining the premise of the show.

Childhood's End Teaser


Looks like they're giving it the "Ascension" treatment; three nights, two hours each, in December.

As a big (huge, enormous) fan of the book, I am not hopeful after watching the trailer.

It is now showing up. Probably a Youtube glitch.

The link in post #2 is not formatted correctly with the YT tags, that's the problem.

Should be this:

Childhood's End

First time using the YT tags + posting from smartphone = didn't realize it wasn't displaying correctly. Sorry about that. Thanks for the correction.

Using the YT tags correctly is a strange black art.
