If you've watched any episodes of the original "Star Trek," you know that wearing a red shirt means you might as well be donning a giant bull's-eye. The life expectancy of a red-shirted ensign is very short, but what if they knew their survival rate was so low? Author John Scalzi explores that exact scenario in his award-winning book "Redshirts."

The comedic sci-fi novel, which was released in 2012 and won the 2013 Hugo Award, is now being developed as a limited TV series for FX.

As I read that book, I kept thinking, I would watch this show. Don't think it should be a movie, but a show would be good.

Glad to see that I'm not the only one.

I expect it will be as mediocre as the novel was. I will never understand why it got the Hugo.
