Probably the best thing on HBO since the first few seasons of GoT. Two episodes in and I'm hooked and I get the sense the series will actually go somewhere and have a proper ending.
This is fantastic. Carla Gugino pisses excellence and this is a stellar example. Elmore Leonard-esque crime television done right. The cast is great. The writing is great. The characters are interesting. If you like hardboiled novels and caper films, you'll love this.
Better than the film. Long time since reading the book, but IIRC, it's kind of all over the place. This is thematically focused and brings in recognizable scenes from the book.
Really good. Pitch perfect as of the 2nd episode.
Can you compress an entire Simpson/Bruckheimer film into a 46-minute television show? Yeah, and it still feels like two hours. The cast is pretty good (Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba are easy to look at. Nice to see Ernie Hudson). It's well shot (think Kayden Kross directed Tushy episode with commercials and no tushy). Annoying Miami Vice-style musical interludes. Probably comes down to whether you thought Con Air was good film. If so, same stuff here.
I'm watching the previous weeks episode every week before I watch the new one. The second watch is usually better than anything else I've seen all week.
Quite good based on the first episode. Found nothing "trippy" or hard to follow it (Legion, I looking at you). David Morrissey was enjoyable. There's a daeth of good fantasy. Anything with swords in it at the box office is almost universally heinous, and when it isn't, it tends toward the Tolkein end of the fantasy specturm.
Best of the Marvel Netflix seasons. This would be good even if you were unfamiliar with the character. John Bernthal is excellent. This is now the definitive version of the character.
Undeservedly being ignored. This is a fantastic depiction of a dystopian Christo-fascist future that seems all too plausible.
I would watch Walton Goggins read the phonebook. There's your concept pitch. Walton Goggins, reading the phonebook. That would be watchable, and this is better than that, so watch it. Does echo the Shawn Ryan/David Mamet series The Unit a little. That's not a bad thing.
Based on a series of hard-boiled crime novels about a contract killer. This shows real promise. The author of the novels, Max Allan Collins, also wrote the comic Road to Perdition which was turned into a film. The protagonist is a Viet Nam vet returning home, and the period of the mid-70s seems spot on. It almost looks like a television show from the time period and doesn't present the period overtly like Madmen or Masters of Sex. It just seems very early seventies without beating you over the head with it. The music is spot on too, but again, it's subtle. Cinemax has never had the series success that sibling HBO has had. This show has more promise than anything else that I've seen from them. Too early to tell, but could be Cinemax's Sopranos or at least, it's True Blood.
