This looks good


I've been looking for a new show and I love Carla Cugino, so this couldn't have come at a better time. Anyone just starting it? Let's do it together.

Sounds like a plan haha, I plan to watch the first episode in the day or two and will come back with my thoughts on it. I am interested to know what you think of it!

Look forward to it!

Started off a little slow I thought, but got better all the way. Looking forward to the second episode

I stopped watching about halfway through. Did it really get that much better?

reply

lol me too, stopped halfway through. Just wasn't interesting to me. And the tropes were way too heavy.

'next' lol

I'm gonna try city on the hill, and The Rook (june 30)

Love it. First observation of many to follow: you have to be Evelyn Wood to read the quotes at the start of each ep.

A texting millennial does not even know what I mean.

“? . . . Quotes? Like tweets . . . ?”

Second observation: Carla Gugino. Yum.

Third observation: often, but not always, clever dialogue, so far (ep 5) superior to the narrative development. Especially like the words from Baudelaire’s 2 right-hand men (who are not identified by my Comcast Info button), especially the tall and skinny white dude who reminds me of a skinny Timothy Olyphant.

Stay tuned

I ALSO LOVE CUGINO...AND ALSO THE CHARACTER NAME... World-class thief Daisy "Jett" Kowalski ...IM SOLD

Fourth observation (coming from a car guy): ep. 6 values a 1958 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL roadster (convertible) at $2 million US, whereas its actual value re Southeby’s is about $800K, about 50 percent less than the far more valuable 1955 Mercedes-Benz 30OSL gull wing (the first coupe whose doors opened UP and not OUT). Sloppy research and writing.
