The show looks beautiful enough and has been so well-cast that those qualities can sometimes be enough when you're looking for a streaming option on a hot summer weekend.

It looks pretty, and Matt Bomer's matinee idol looks certainly help, but more than that, it's the carefully-written characters that make The Last Tycoon a pleasantly insightful piece of TV.
