Since they are sister stations(both owned by same folks) I thought I'd combine. We have never had a 'max thread before and they are starting with a lot of original programming.

Oh yeah, and that Farewell to Bon Temps special that aired over the weekend not only made me glad True Blood is leaving, it made me want to hunt down and wedgie anyone ever involved with the show.

watched Kick-Ass 2 last night. In the middle. It was a lot of fun for sure. But the comedic undertones didn't seem to be nearly as entertaining as the first one. No major bazookas in this one either. The whole thing with Mindy "do i want to be a popular high school girl or kick some butt" was contrived and kind of "blah". I was hoping she would go a little more Carrie on the popular kids. The zapping so they vomit was kind of dumb. She could've had much cooler retribution. But, when she kicks a**, she kicks a**.

Jim Carrey was weird, but kind of funny I guess? But do I really believe the married couple and more or less the Clueless/Scrubs guy would not have been killed in 2 seconds by real criminals? They all took down that asian guy's poker game waaaay too easily.

spoiler alert....


Back to Hit Girl, her fight scene with mother russia was pretty fantastic. Very hulk hogan-esque in getting annihilated before the adrenaline rush and quick victory. Her guardian should've had a fight scene in the movie. I thought perhaps he could've shown up at the end and had an action fight with John Leguizamo (before he met his fate). And was mother f***er's uncle really necessary?

Feels like the kind of movie where if I watch a second time I bet I'll enjoy it even more.

Sounds like you dug it a bit already. Yeah, the one thing is that it's a lot darker this time around...even though they did tone down some from the comic. The stuff with his dad was pretty upsetting. Tonally it was a little all over the place, but yeah...I have seen it a few more times since it's been on Max and it does grow on you.

watched RIPD last night. I actually thought it was pretty fun. Definitely like MIB but with deados instead of aliens. Reynolds and Bridges played well off each other, and Bridges had a few one-liners that were very lol-worthy.

Nothing mind-blowing here. Some cool effects, random humor, and a generic yet highly-unbelievable storyline. Yet I was entertained enough and found the good in it. And Kevin Bacon rules in just about everything.

Prob'ly did. The one thing I took from that movie is that it reeked of studio interference. Felt, at times, that entire parts of the movie were removed. Oh, and the EGREGIOUS product placement in the scene where she interviews Reynolds for the first time...wow. It was almost as if the studio put it there defiantly. I know that Robert Knepper had to have originally had a bigger part then what was left in. You don't hire a guy like him for what amounted to a cameo. Like I said, it was empty calories fun, but if we are gonna start dissecting it...ooooooooooh boy there is a lot to pick at.

NO! And don't take my anger personally, it's just my self loathing from watching this pile of crap. Where to start? Oh SPOILERS, Tara dies off screen. That would normally be a good thing, BUT...SPOILERS...the fact it happened off screen, and Tara's Mom(she doesn't deserve a name) hysterics virtually guarantee that this show will punish us by bringing her back YET AGAIN. As far as the rest of the non events...WHooooooooooooooooooooCARES? A whole lot of nothing performed by wheel spinning one dimensional characters with all the earmarks of the worst soap opera-esque acting. **** this show and FML that I still am drawn to it like watching a race just waiting for the wreckage. Guess what...HBO HATES their subscribers. They could have started 'The Leftovers' last night(starts next week) which looks like it is going to eventually annoy(showrunner has already said something to the effect of 'I hope people care more about the day-to-day than the overall mystery(?????????)) but instead, you get more of the same.

No, it should be good for a while till the lack of concrete explanations just frustrates and HBO goes all Deadwood/Carnivale' and fails to renew as soon as they start filling you in. The title is a little lame, like it should be some movie about the last kids picked for a _____ team, so no arguments there. Surprising amount of, what appears to be sexual content, considering, and forgive me if I am mistaken, the books this is based on are on the subtle Christian fiction side***.

Well, no 2 ways around it. True Blood is gawdawful. Almost spectacularly so. I...just...don't...care about anyone on this show and I would like them all to die. Eric has the hiv(errrrrr VampC or whatever), Jason is finally gonna go bawls deep, what is it with vampires where they ALWAYS have to be gay? And Anna Paquin couldn't act on a telenovella. Just horrible. Come back Dexter, all is forgiven. TB is waaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy worse.

Leftovers. First of all, the animal violence, sorry, but it almost turned me away. Kill all the people you want, but a dog gets headshot and I am halfway to the door. Yes, I know it's fake, just don't care to see. Ok, that being said, this show is gonna be good. Not sure if it is a mini-series(which I have read), but I hope it is, because this should have a finite number of episodes. The performances across the board are terrific. The one thing that really sold it was the music. Man, heavy heavy stuff. And that may turn some folks away. Looks like it will be terribly bleak...with very little to offer otherwise. I think a lot of people will give up on this because people tend to have a tolerance for how much suffering they can witness. This show seems to have bountiful amounts with a lot more to come. To be honest, I care very little about what happened to the what? 4% of the population that got vanished. In life you rarely get answers, but as with LOST, a lot of people need concrete reveals...so once again, if you think this isn't for you, you may want to jump off now. This and Rectify are two of the more fascinating shows about loss and grief that I have ever seen. I hope this show can expand on the promise of the pilot.

Survivors guilt I would have to imagine. There is definitely some HUGE backstory to fill in in regards to Liv Tyler's character.

I know my weekly rant on True Blood is as predictable as the writing/quality of the show, but I have to vent and it's cheaper than therapy, so...

Just gawdawful. All guilty parties should have their writers guild/sag credits removed. Never has a show had so much happening and yet been so inert. Just spinning wheels. And just when they show hints of maaaaaaaaybe being able to wring some drama out of a love triangle, boom...right between the eyes. Literally. What the hell happened to this show.

To cleanse the palate...Leftovers continues to be a very good, very bleak watch. I hope this is limited because I don't think the ratings are what HBO wanted to see. GREAT to see Scott Glenn pop in for a nice little part. It would appear that they are going to address the event and the reasons behind it...at least in hints and teases. Still not a fan of the dog killing, but I guess it's an integral part of the story. Still nobody besides me and Ecktore commenting...are you guys not watching or just don't have anything to say?

EDIT: Leftovers music/score needs to be commended again. On a show where a large percentage of the cast doesn't speak, or speaks only in mono syllables, a score that might be overwhelming otherwise, becomes crucial to building drama. Long silences on a show of this pace and temperment would be deadly. Heavy and subtle at the same time...deserves a co-starring credit.

I can't wait for True Blood to end. Eric is finally back but had nothing to do besides wear a ****ty wig in flashbacks. I'm not surprised by Alcide's death, considering the writers never gave him much to do anyway. *sigh* there goes my eye candy. and we're supposed to sympathize with Sookie when it was her fault? please.

Here's my theory.

Doghunter guy: He (like the 'voices' in cop dads head) is someone who has the ability to float between different dimensions. The people who went missing just moved to another dimension where they think the people we're watching vanished too. He's killing the dogs because he knows they're going crazy. The whole animals can see into different plains of existence and whatever angle.

I know it's out there, but why not have some fun with such a wrist cutter of a show?

Another theory: A lot more exposition to come.

Kitsch is game if nothing else. From Jon Carter, to Savages, to playing a gay man in that Normal Heart flick(which I haven't seen), he appears to at least be trying to advance his career based on his ability as much as his looks. With Farrell anchoring(who probably could teach him a thing or two about trying to get by on looks) I would be satisfied with the combo.

Ok I know I am prone to waxing, but damned if this isn't the bleakest, saddest most beautifully depressing show ever made. With so much impotent rage.

Foo Fighters Set Premiere for HBO 'Sonic Highways' Series (http://loudwire.com/foo-fighters-premiere-date-hbo-sonic-highways-series/)


The band set out with the idea of visiting some of America’s most richest musical scenes, recording songs in each of the cities and recording the whole process for posterity. “I’ve pulled up the family tree of American music and explored its roots to find inspiration for the next Foo Fighters album,” explained Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl in announcing the project.
Along the way, the group met up with some of the artists closely associated with the cities they were visiting. For instance, Cheap Trick guitarist joined the band in Chicago, while Gary Clark Jr. lent some licks during their stop in Austin, Texas. Zac Brown, Joe Walsh and Trombone Shorty and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band were also among the guests during the band’s stops. In addition to Chicago and Austin, the band also made stops in Nashville, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, Seattle and Washington, D.C

During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, executive producers/writers Jack Amiel and Michael Begler talked about what led to the creation of this show, how this was a period of massive transition in America, how Steven Soderbergh ended up being the first person to read the finished script, how quickly Soderbergh moved ahead on the project, once he signed on, their desire to have all of the scripts for the 10 episodes written ahead of time, so that they could film out of order when needed, getting such a terrific cast of actors together, and having the show mapped out, scene by scene, so that they could move right ahead on a second season (which has already been picked up). Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

Anyone see the Knick. Not bad...but a tad unpleasant. Lurid in it's depiction of what was considered surgery at that point, and also in regards to opinions about race. Not a terrible show and it has potential...but it ain't exactly feel good tv.

And there is already a potential drinking game. Whenever someone is walking outside of the hospital, if there is the ambient sound of hooves on the cobblestones, to the point that it almost seems as if the person walking is a horse, you gotta DRINK. First episode had...three, maybe four instances to the point it was distracting.

‘The Leftovers’: Sometimes You Have to Pretend it Didn’t Happen (http://screenrant.com/leftovers-episode-9-garveys-their-best-review/)


But what’s troubling about ‘The Garveys at Their Best,’ then, is the heavy-handedness of how it delivers some of the information to the audience; the little moments underlining the tragedies to come feel too strained, too self-aware, or too extreme at times.

This isn’t necessarily a dire complaint; most of what The Leftovers has presented this season has certainly been on the extreme side of somber and grief-stricken, with small bits of levity and humor thrown in on occasion. And for those who’re attuned to appreciate those elements in the amounts they’re doled out week after week, the show has been emotionally effective and lyrically beautiful in ways even some of the best shows on television struggle to achieve.



This is about the fairest most 'gets it' review of the show I have read. Emotionally effective and lyrically beautiful. Awesome.

Anyone else watching The Knick? It's a very odd show. Almost an ANTI-drama. Everything is presented clinically. No antagonist or protagonist to speak of really. And it truly seems like if you needed surgery you were well and truly f'd. The doctors perform 'procedures' which are more like experiments with a 'well, it would have gone the same way if we did nothing approach', and outside of SPOILERS Max Headroom, who snuffed it early in the first episode, they have a lazy, dismissive attitude towards the results. It's not unwatchable, but I got to the end of episode 3 and was wondering WHY I am still going to watch. Soderbergh really seems to be uninterested in actually entertaining people.

True Detective Season 2 Air Date Window Shifts (http://hbowatch.com/true-detective-season-2-air-date-window-shifts/)


HBO’s head of programming Mike Lombardo dropped this bomb:
“We’re going to start shooting [True Detective Season 2] in September…
HBOWatch: Oh, great! Sounds good. The cast must be in place and the scripts almost finalized…
…for it to air next summer.”
Damn. True Detective season 1 aired in January of 2014. We were expecting True Detective season 2 to premiere in January or February of 2015. This means the window has been pushed back six months or so. Not the news we know True Detective fans were looking for.
If we were to guess we’d put True Detective into True Blood’s old summer air slot. That would mean TD:S2 would premiere sometime in late June, a week or two after whenever Game of Thrones season 5 ends. Analyzing the calendar: June 21st, 2015, plus or minus a week is our long-shot guess at a premiere date for True Detective season 2.

I imagine that Eli's kid will have a prominent role to play; otherwise his entire story just has no purpose. He will be put in a position of having to choose between his loyalty to Nucky and his job is my guess.

I do like Nucky's back story flashbacks. Speaking of Eddie, at the beginning of that scene when Margaret was teaching Nucky's bodyguard English, when you couldn't see them, I could have sworn for a second that was Eddie's voice, which had me very confused. As far as the Empire State Building, I'm glad the base was used as a bludgeon and the other end was not used, uhhh, in a different manner, which is what I was worried might happen.

Boardwalk spoilers:

Solid episode, seems like hell is about to break loose. A bit annoyed by the way Van Alden, who easily is one of my favorite characters on the show, was handled... We've been with him since more or less the start of the show and when he ultimately met his demise it felt like there wasn't a point to it all. Almost like he was a character they decided to keep around because he was popular instead of killing him off when his story came to a natural conclusion. Compare it to Chalky who had a worthy ending with an arc, self-sacrifice and everything. Van Alden punched Al Capone and got his brains blown out. Yeah I understand that it led to the undercover agent being trusted with incriminating documents but I gotta think they could have done something better to wrap up a character as intruiging, multifasceted and complex as Van Alden. It's like what of the story of him being a former agent? His dual nature? His inability to understand and relate to other people? Eli boning his wife? Nah they just ****ing killed him off instead.

Oh well, just one part handled poorly in an otherwise great show.

SPOILERS

I get your point...I do, but I saw it a little differently.
Firstly I thought Van Alden was probably meant to go a LONG time ago. Michael Shannon made that too hard to do. Yes, his arc was sooooo far better than even Nucky's, and we watched him just survive. He was always reacting to crap he, through his own bad decisions, kept getting stuck in. You think back to how prideful he was being an agent...and just how bad he failed at every other disguise he tried to assume. In the end, he had Capone's neck in his hands while claiming back his identity. Sure it was abrupt, but it was almost necessary for him to go back to that time when he wasn't an abject failure...at marraige, being a father, a gangster, an iron salesman, a flower arranger/collector...I kinda see his ending as actually being a little more heroic than Chalky's. At least he, in a bungling sort of way, came through. Chalky's sacrifice, while noble...was far from a guarantee that what he sacrificed himself for actually came to be. Either way, the only character(still alive) I really feel any empathy for is Eli. And that won't end well either. Johnny Torreo...who saw that coming, btw?

BigBrown
October 13th, 2014, 01:45 PM
That's a fair point. I thoroughly enjoyed myself when he was screaming in Capone's face that he was a federal agent and I was excited to see where they'd take this crazy man next now that he'd come full circle so to say... but yeah, I didn't get much time to ponder that scenario.

Torrio's gotta go down! Part of me wants to just google and find out what happens to them all but I can't give in to those urges, the show's too good.

So I got lost in the flash backs and forwards.. The kid that saved him when he was rolled by the hookers was Tommy?

Nope it was Tommy all along(including with the hookers). He worked his way into the circle of Nucky for the sake of finding out if he was a bad man or a good man, as he said. And the fact that he refused 'tips' for running errands etc. along with tearing up the money Nucky offered him cemented it. Was it convenient? A little. But shenanigan worthy? Not really. What was a little heavy handed was that he shot him under his eye, which is the same place Nucky shot his father.
The one thing I got from reading reviews is the ending. As Nucky was dying it flashed back to him as a kid, finally getting that gold coin that eluded him in the earlier episode. Thought that was pretty groovy. As the flashbacks showed and the entire run in general, Nucky always wanted to be something other than what he was. Always chasing, never appreciating. More I think about the ending and the season in general, the more I appreciate it.

Overall I liked the final episode, maybe a bit too heavy on farewell-moments but whatever, it's the series finale. Probably one of the weaker seasons though, it kinda sucks to end on anything but a high point so it's disappointing in that regard. A big problem is that there were barely any likable characters left, previously likable ones like Nucky and Eli, whom I enjoyed greatly as brothers and partners earlier in the show, were now isolated, distant and alone. The whole Cuba business wasn't all that interesting and ended suddenly. The gangster war was summed up in a montage. Characters getting killed off without much of an emotional impact because the show was wrapping up in a hurry. The flashbacks and the kid that later was revealed to be Tommy were things that I didn't love during the season but they both had nice payoffs in the end.

Overall a quality show that I'm sad to see end. Started slow but promising, had a very strong middle and sort of lost a bit of steam towards the end but still excellent.

Your point about Cuba is spot on. I wonder how much stuff got cut when HBO came at them with the offer for 8 episodes instead of 12. From an interview I read

http://www.hitfix.com/whats-alan-watching/boardwalk-empire-creator-terence-winter-on-nuckys-fate-and-the-series-finale

some other plotlines got clipped too. Winter backs up my feelings about Van Alden's death being all about getting back to who he was, as well. I think the show suffered after Gyp Rosetti. Dude was a dynamo, and once he was gone they couldn't get back to that level again. And Nucky and Margaret splitting up took a lot of steam out of the show too. I think if you went back and binge watched the whole thing you might come out with a better feeling overall. They always seemed to be going for the long story, which is why a lot of passages seemed pointless and boring till they payed off. Considering how Dexter and True Blood and to a certain extent Sopranos, played out...I think overall it was a pretty satisfying run.
Dude that played young Nucky...that HAD to be a prosthetic in his mouth...right? Pretty damned good likeness though.

Overall a quality show that I'm sad to see end. Started slow but promising, had a very strong middle and sort of lost a bit of steam towards the end but still excellent.

Yes, the Cuba thing was neither here nor there. Probably got chopped up as jd mentioned. Good show overall, although to be honest I watched much of it this past season on auto pilot. I watched it since the beginning and I felt kind of obligated to see how it all ended after investing all that time. I doubt I would have been hooked if I started watching this season.

David Fincher Will Direct The Entire First Season Of HBO's 'Utopia' In 2015 (http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/david-fincher-will-direct-the-entire-first-season-of-hbos-utopia-in-2015-20140929)


Chatting with The Guardian, Fincher revealed that he will be behind the camera for every episode of HBO's remake of the U.K. series "Utopia." The project, which has been brewing for a while, was given a series order by the network earlier this year, with "Gone Girl" author Gillian Flynn also on board to produce. The show (which has two seasons overseas) follows a group of people who get their hands on a cult graphic novel called "The Utopia Experiments," which seems to have predicted no shortage of disasters. An organization known only as The Network hunts them down as the group tries to prevent the next disaster predicted in the pages of the manuscript from happening.

“I like the world of it,” Fincher told the paper. “I like the characters – I love Dennis’s [Kelly, creator of the U.K. show] honesty and affinity for the nerds. I mean, I’ve always been a bit of a junior conspiracy theorist because I don’t have time to connect them all! But it’s nice to see that somebody has.”

Sold.

So yesterday was tv catch up/dvr cleaning day...

Ok, so I finally watched the Leftovers finale'. Just made me want the new season to start tomorrow. First off, it's criminal that HBO has not produced a soundtrack. The music is so overwhelming and oppressive...but it works sooooooooooooo well. For a show that has long passages of silence, it's key. Not a happy show, but it actually ended with as much hope as the show has ever shown and that makes me even more excited for s2.
ANd I got thru 2 of the 3 episodes of the Newsroom. As much as I like this show, it is a little overwhelming. Sorkin packs SO much dialogue into each episode that it wears you down. It was very funny/clever/self aware when one of the characters said to a stranger 'Everyone in my office monologues'. The acting is top notch...just outstanding from top to bottom. Will miss this show, but it's sometimes a tough watch so I get why it's ending.

David Fincher’s HBO Series With James Ellroy Titled SHAKEDOWN; Will Also Direct LIVING ON NOISE for the Network
Read more at http://collider.com/david-fincher-shakedown/#JVrM2YF28MAi32SV.99


Back in September we reported that David Fincher and James Ellroy were collaborating on a Los Angeles-set 1950s crime noir series for HBO and now that show has a title, Shakedown. Remember when Fincher had those five fallow years between Panic Room and Zodiac? Boy am I glad he’s not repeating that, he’s one of our master filmmakers so I’ll take pretty much whatever he’s serving up.

Fincher will also direct another pilot for HBO called Living On Noise. That series will reportedly center around the director’s involvement in the 1980′s music video scene (you probably already know that he shot videos for Paula Abdul, Madonna, Nine Inch Nails, and Aerosmith back in the day). Hit the jump for more on David Fincher’s involvement in Shakedown and Living On Noise.

Per Deadline, Shakedown is “set in the tabloid world and the underbelly of Los Angeles in the 1950s and centers on a real-life private detective.” It is said to be drawn from the accounts of famous 50′s Hollywood police officer turned P.I. Fred Otash. Since Ellroy was the guy behind L.A. Confidential I have no doubts that Fincher has all of the creative tools he needs for this one.

The same goes for Living On Noise, which The Wrap says will be a half-hour show focussing on music video production in the 80′s. The show is said to center around the crew members of these video shoots. Not much more is known, but any Fincher is good Fincher. Even if some of our best filmmakers are running to TV.

Seriously, I have had to force myself at time to watch season 1 and 2, but this season I think the showrunners have fully embraced the wackiness inherent in this show and just cranked it up to 10. The guy who plays Hood carries most of it, but I am really digging the Job and Sugar dynamic too. Some nice humor amongst the bone breaking. Really bad/good soap opera with amazing fight scene choreography. Guilty pleasure like crazy.

No. Black Sails is on Starz, and so far we haven't started a thread for that channel. I have been putting things in the TELEVISION thread since that is sort of the all purpose miscellaneous thread.

As far as Banshee, I don't see how it could have went any other way. Hood wasn't gonna have a happily ever after. So if you want to be mad at the writers for anything, make it the fact that they painted themselves into a corner. I had more issues with the fact that there were 20+ Redbones w/automatic weapons firing on the CADI and, like always, they fired no lower than waist level. So, drop down, problem solved. Shoot along the floorboards for chrissakes would ya? And Proctor sure got away easily. They shoulda went with him.

Bunker(?) is far too likeable and sympathetic for an ex(?) Neo-Nazi. I got a feeling that this Tank he spoke of may be the next BansheeBigBad unless this is some sort of long con. All in all a solid episode with a lot of Assault on Precinct 13 callbacks.

It does seem like Tank will arrive at some point since Bunker will probably take a more prevalent role once they conclude the Chayton storyline this season.

You mention your issue with the Redbones not firing lower down and I noticed another silly thing occur. After Hood and Proctor kill the guys before Proctor's escape, they leave the automatic weapons they drop that are clearly seen next to their bodies.

I still give them tons of credit for the overall intensity of the whole episode.

Is this the right thread for Black Sails? Didn't see the HBO logo to start the show but I've never heard of "Starz". In any case, I too am a handful of episodes in and enjoying myself. Kept hearing good things so I had to check it out and it probably won't be too long before I'm caught up.

I think Starz is owned by HBO.

I think Starz is owned by HBO.

Researched and the only thing I could find is that HBO Nordic is licensing Starz content for overseas distribution. Other than that Liberty Cable is listed as the primary owner but that seems to be open to argument as well.

Walton Goggins and Shea Whigham Cast in Upcoming HBO Comedy VICE PRINCIPALS
http://collider.com/vice-principals-walton-goggins-shea-whigham/


According to Deadline,

Vice Principals tells the story of a high school and the people who almost run it: the vice principals: Neal Gamby (McBride) and Lee Russell (Goggins), a conniving politician who enters into an unholy alliance with Gamby.

Whigham plays Ray Liptrapp, the new husband of Gamby’s ex (Busy Phillips), and frequent target of his hostility, despite being a genuine and supportive guy.

Oh hell yeah.

That wasn't my favorite episode but it was may be I'm just worn out from this season and that's a credit to the show.

On a side not, while I think some or maybe most people expect T&A because it's on Cinemax, I actually think the show has become so good that it's clearly not needed to be a huge success and actually feels completely unneeded since it's placed in the middle of all the crazy action. They have toned that aspect down a bit this year and it's not missed in the slightest. That's a compliment on how well the show has turned out to be.

Is Robert Durst Lying On ‘The Jinx’? Or Is He A Victim Of Weird Contacts?
http://uproxx.com/tv/2015/03/robert-durst-jinx-contacts-theory/


If you’re watching The Jinx on HBO, you’ve probably been made deeply uncomfortable by series subject Robert Durst. One of his more unsettling aspects is his blink. After certain statements, he practically blinks himself out of his chair. MorningAfter made a supercut of some of his most intense blinks, then posited they could be a sign of lying. However, an LA Times commenter came up with a different explanation:

I spend a lot of time in Asia. Bobby was wearing Japanese “Doe Eyes” contact lenses. They are designed to make you look like a baby deer, or innocent. The whites of the eyes are reduced.

In this case it made the person under interview blink frequently.

Perhaps the intention was to look innocent, or the lenses were recommended to act as sunglasses.

Yeah, his blink is frightening. But man...his legal team is AMAZING!!!!!!!

Dunno man...that doc made a strong case for an insanity plea at the very least. And the lawyers are already dropping beauties about the contacts(see above). Even with the letter, how can they prove he killed her. All the lawyers have to suggest is that he stopped by her house, found the body, and given his previous case of dismembering a body out of fear he would be blamed for the murder...well...there ya go. I know nothing about law and I have already poked holes. His attorneys are REALLY good.
As shocking as the finale' was I thought it was a little indulgent and the documentarian went out of his way to make himself part of the story. If I'm not mistaken that is a violation of the first rule of the medium. A lot of articles suggesting that they withheld evidence and there should be a follow up to the timeline/motivations. Is it purely coincidence that Durst was arrested on the same day as the finale airing???? There is more story to see here.

THE JINX: Robert Durst Officially Charged With Susan Berman’s Murder
http://collider.com/the-jinx-robert-durst-murder-charge/


“Before the disappearance of my sister-in-law, Bob had a series of Alaskan Malamutes, which is like a husky,” Douglas Durst said. “He had seven of them, and they all died, mysteriously, of different things, within six months of his owning them. All of them named Igor. We don’t know how they died, and what happened to their bodies.
“In retrospect, I now believe he was practicing killing and disposing his wife with those dogs.”
What led him to that conclusion, Douglas said, was that Robert turned the word “Igor” into a verb and inflected it with a menace: “When he was in jail in Pennsylvania, he was recorded saying, ‘I want to Igor Douglas.’”

Ok, ****er has got to go...got to go.

and the charge carries the death penalty if they can prove the 'lying in wait' clause.

This Is Rumored To Be The Plot Of ‘True Detective’ Season 2
http://uproxx.com/tv/2015/03/this-is-rumored-to-be-the-plot-of-true-detective-season-2/


It involves dead bodies, S&M, and RAILWAY SYSTEMS.

The season is due to kick off with the dead body of a corrupt politician being found along the Pacific Coast Highway with satanic symbols carved into his chest. California Highway Patrol officers Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch are assigned the case. It turns out the victim is a known associate of Vince Vaughn’s character and this dead man had a dark side involving some associations with S&M clubs – but perhaps most importantly, the man was in the middle of brokering a big deal that would solve the state’s gridlock problem. (Via)

Vaughn’s character is described as a “career criminal” who wants to go legitimate by getting involved with a “high-speed railway system for California,” while Rachel McAdams is a sheriff “who has a different set of ethics” than the corrupt Farrell and recovering Kitsch.

This is all info that has already been put out there. The article just puts it all together. Definitely going to be in the Chinatown vein. Probably VERY different from s1.

Just blew through The Jinx in like two days, wow. Having known nothing about the case or Robert Durst in advance, other than some vague memory of Letterman making fun of him for being busted shoplifting a hoagie when wanted for murder, it was quite the ride. I think they could probably have trimmed an episode just to make it tighter, felt like it was repeating itself at times and I wasn't a fan of the documentarians making themselves the focus of the show towards the end, but I can't argue with that final payoff. Just wow.

Since I didn't know anything about it, early on when they did the "10 years later" after being busted the first time and he was free I had assumed he at least served some time for manslaughter and dismemberment or something. It never crossed my mind that he would walk. The lawyers made an excellent case though, but man... getting off the hook completely, that kind of blew my mind. And no one thought to compare the handwriting of the anonymous note to the handwriting of the primary suspect of the case the victim was being interviewed for? Also infuriating was how no one had questioned the doorman in the first case, or interviewed his neighbors, or searched his house and so on. And now the guy is so old that even if he's being convicted, which he might not be, the lawyers will probably find a way to drag the thing out until he's dead of old age. Crazy to think that had they not found that note, which seemingly was found just by chance, he'd still be getting away with it despite clearly having a case of hubris and doing whatever the hell he wanted at any point.

Well well.. enjoyed the show quite a bit and hopefully there will be justice, as much justice as there can be at this point which admittedly isn't much.

The Timeline For ‘The Jinx’ Might Be Even More Flawed Than We Thought
http://uproxx.com/tv/2015/03/the-timeline-for-the-jinx-might-be-even-more-flawed-than-we-thought/


But now BuzzFeed has found even more holes in the story.

A source close to The Jinx production told BuzzFeed News that the first set of Durst interviews was filmed in Los Angeles in mid-December 2010 over a few days. In the phone calls we hear between Jarecki and Durst trying to schedule the second sit-down, they mention dates in October and November, and we then see a wall calendar for the month of January. So this haggling seems to be taking place in fall 2011 and winter 2012. That would appear to indicate that Sareb Kaufman, Berman’s surrogate son who discovered the “Beverley” envelope from Durst to Berman, found it between late December in 2010 and early fall of 2011. Although it should be noted that during these scenes in which Durst is being elusive, Jarecki does not specifically mention the envelope; he refers to “everything we’ve learned in the meantime.” The filmmakers do consult with forensic handwriting analyst John Osborn on camera, and show him the envelope — but it’s impossible to figure out when any of these events took place. Kaufman did not return a phone call to his office nor a Facebook message from BuzzFeed News asking when he had found the envelope; Osborn told BuzzFeed News, much like Jarecki and Smerling, that because he is a potential witness, he could not answer any questions.

BuzzFeed posits that if the envelope with Durst’s handwriting and misspelling of “Beverley”, this case’s smoking gun, was found in 2010, that means Jarecki and company held onto it for years before giving it to law enforcement. There is also some question regarding when Durst trespassed near his brother Douglas’s home. In the show, they refer to this as occurring weeks after filming, but filming ended in 2012 and he was arrested in 2013, over a year later.

New TV Series From George R. R. Martin in Development at HBO
http://collider.com/george-r-r-martin-new-series-hbo/


I know, A Song of Ice and Fire readers — your first thought after the news of George R. R. Martin developing a new series is surely: “what?! I thought GRRM was taking some serious time to finish up Winds of Winter!” Apparently the possible series — called Captain Cosmos — won’t be a major time commitment for Martin (who has an overall development deal with HBO).

According to THR,

[The series] centers on a young sci-fi writer living in 1949 at the dawn of the age of TV. The writer spends his time penning stories no one else would dare to write.

Michael Casutt (Z Nation) is writing the pilot, so it looks like Martin won’t be directly involved in the series (as far as writing goes, at least so far). The material, too, is clearly vastly different from that of Game of Thrones, so it will be really interesting to get another facet of Martin’s world-building through it.



Does the protagonist wear a Cap'n & Tennille hat by any chance?
