    Wow...got just about caught up on Boardwalk. Man, talk about a slooooooooow burn. I stopped watching after the first 2 which were veryslow, but I kept hearing good things so I watched 6 or 7 over the last 20 hours. AMAZING. Richard Harrow is just so awesome. And I love Forsythe's 'L'Chaim to life' turn, great characters with interesting stories, just what anyone could want. Now I have to have a HOMELAND marathon.

    Oh thank God...SPOILERS...


    They finally got rid of Jimmy's annoying wife. That storyline was sooooooo tiresome. I see no way that Nucky avoids jail, and now with the investigation into Schroeder's 'murder', it looks even worse. I wonder how long they are thinking of going with this show. Would they pull what Deadwood pulled and remove one of their main characters early on? I think the character Nucky is based on went to jail at some point, so...Good show though once you get past the initial setup.

    ‘Red’ Director Robert Schwentke to Direct ‘The Lobotomist’ Pilot For HBO | /Film

    While working on Shutter Island, producer Brad Fischer, writer Laeta Kalogridis and star Leonardo DiCaprio were all taken with Jack El-Hai‘s book The Lobotomist: A Maverick Medical Genius and His Tragic Quest to Rid the World of Mental Illness. The tome is a history of Walter Freeman, the doctor who was the first proponent of the frontol lobotomy in the United States. He developed the trans-orbital lobotomy method, using a tool derived from a standard kitchen ice pick. (As seen in Brad Anderson’s film Session 9.)

    The Fischer/Kalogridis/DiCaprio trio were interested enough that they optioned the book and brought it to HBO as possible fodder for a series. Now a drama is in the works, called The Lobotomist, and Robert Schwentke (Red, The Astronaut’s Wife, R.I.P.D.) will direct the pilot from a script by Daniel Thomsen.

    Variety has the news, saying that the fate of the potential series is not yet set.

    Walter Freeman performed his first pre-frontal lobotomy in 1936, but didn’t develop the famous trans-orbital lobotomy technique until the mid-’40s. Variety’s article specifies part of the thrust of the potential series,

    ya, i thought his wife was inconsequential to the storyline. i think his mom is more annoying though.
    i didn't watch season 1 yet. i need to go back and watch it (hopefully, it's on hbo go...) when this season is over, but oh ya, i'm loving it. manny horvitz scares the f*** outta me!

    Manya is awesome...but Forsythe has always been tremendous. Really underrated. The mother(creep factor warp speed) is so much more integral in my opinion. There is a wealth of unexplored improper child care story there. The wife was really an anchor to the story. Oh man, you have to watch season 1. Even though you are caught up it's worth watching simply because it's well made tv.

    the latitude the writers get to embellish upon those "loosely based on" characters is what gives hair to the real-life figures that we already know at least a little about.

    Mikey Doyle CRACKS me up!

    man, Gretchen Mol's character is probably the most complex of them all.



    the quality of this show is huge... you just have to be into (or in a prolonged mood for) slow burns.

    Indeed. I like Doyle too, that delivery and the weird giggle. He's awesome. When I said the wife was an anchor, I meant she was dead weight(just to clarify). Chalkie's another good character, think he could use a little more to do though. But, yeah, although it is deliberately paced the payoff has been awesome so far. Now if we could just get rid of Paz de la Huerta.

    i totally agree about the mom. i do think the creep factor is an important component to the whole darmody storyline, but wow, i think my annoyance is just with the fact that she's a f***ing weird ass mom (being a mom myself and having a complicated relationship with my own mom).

    and ya, paz de la huerta, hahaha...

    and don't worry, i WILL watch season 1. i gotta find out more about hans schroeder and what nucky supposedly did to him. i just gotta find time (probably after this season ends).

    HBO Announces Premiere Dates for EASTBOUND & DOWN, LIFE’S TOO SHORT and LUCK

    With the midseason premieres of several new and returning series just around the corner on network television, cable has plenty of new stuff in store as well. Deadline reports HBO has just brought their midseason premiere schedule to the table with the return of the third (and possible final) season of Danny McBride in Eastbound & Down returning on February 19th at 10/9c. Then following immediately after on the same night at 10:30/9:30c Ricky Gervais brings yet another one of his British successes to the cable network with Life’s Too Short. But before all that, the new drama series Luck, starring Dustin Hoffman, will debut on January 29th. However, the series will actually have a sneak preview after the season finale of Boardwalk Empire on December 11th as well. After the jump you can check out the trailers for all three series.
