Fallout TV show trademark registered

Remember Fallout 3 radio DJ Three Dog's voice actor teasing we might see more of the character, bow-wow-wow, soon? It was tough to not start quivering in anticipation of impending Fallout 4 news, but a trademark registration sniffed out by Eurogamer points in a less expected, but still very exciting, direction.

This particular "Fallout" trademark applies to "entertainment services in the nature of an on-going television program set in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world," which speaks for itself in a way that precious few trademark and patent filings tend to do.

Erik Todd Dellums (Three Dog's voice actor) has a lot of voice work in his portfolio, but he's also seen some screen time, including a recurring role on acclaimed HBO drama The Wire.

We don't know anything about the program beyond a potential Three Dog appearance, but a live-action series given proper love from HBO or AMC could be excellent. Just imagine telling all your friends you were into water chips and super mutants before they went prime time.

    OK who's got bets on how many "technical difficulties" it'll have?

    If one of the character's head doesn't start spinning like a clock in the first episode, then I will be disappointed.

    As a gamer, I'm sure I can speak for us all that we were hoping for a Fallout 4 with an improved Skyrim engine a la Fallout 3 to Oblivion. I sense a strong Walking Dead incentive. Maybe this could be cool.

    Please yes. FO4 with the new and improved Creation Engine would be awesome. Granted it still needs a lot of tweaks, it could be awesome.

    this could either be great or horrible.

    Well... wasn't expecting that. But seriously, it sounds like it could be cool - after all, I really enjoyed those "Nuka Break" fan films. I wonder what that'd be like with a bigger budget and higher productions... *shrugs* I'd certainly watch it.

    This could make the wait for FO4 MUCH better!! :D

    What I think would work better and I would like to see are some WELL WRITTEN and done movies based on Fallout! I think that would be a much better approach.. I cannot see a TV show really making it big enough to have a constant and consistent following. Many of us fans would watch but I think even more would do so on the big screen with excellent writing and special effects.

    I feel like a Fallout T.V. show would work best with just stories from the wasteland, a Movie would be hard to do just because a main character would be so hard to make.

    if HBO make it, maybe it could work. Sceptical until anything comes to light though. Now in the meantime, where's Fallout 4 Bethesda?
  • ZeeCaptain - January 16, 2013 2:14 p.m.

    Okay, well hmm...
  • The_Tingler - January 16, 2013 2:03 p.m.

    Wow, that is... something I could really get behind! As long as we get Fallout 4 as well, of course.
