    Same here. I remember watching the trailer and was pretty "meh" about it so wasn't expecting much if anything at all, but it ended up hooking me from the first episode on. 2 episodes away from blasting our way through both seasons. The trailer just doesn't do it justice at all, which is a good thing. It's nice to watch something light-hearted once in a while. Oh, and the lead (Rachel Brosnahan) is pretty hawt in this too.

    I also thought it faded towards the end, I just couldn't get interested in the Hearst and Alma stuff that season. However, I'm still pretty excited for the movie this year.

    Yeah, but the Beastie Boys made one of the most brilliant albums of their career--heck, one of the most brilliant albums, regardless of genre, of all time-- while out in Cali......

    Huh? There were only 3 seasons man. I think you're thinking about another show. (and there are no "new ones". Theres a movie, next week.) All 3 seasons were $$$

    Nope, I definitely remember, even thought it was over a decade ago. Overall not a terrible show, I thought the dialog was kinda cheesy because it was more out of the 21st century than the old west. I read something about them saying fuck more than 1.5 times per minute over the entire show. That didn't bother me though. I just lost interest in the last season. Sorry if I insulted your shitty wannabe western miniseries, but not everybody likes the same shit. Maybe it just felt longer than 3 seasons because I lost interest but kept watching.

    Didn't insult anything for me bro I could care less if you like Deadwood or not, you just sound ignorant of the show your critiquing when you say something like "well the first few seasons were good but the last few weren't" when the show was only 3 seasons long. Like you really have no idea what you're talking about but feel like throwing your negative two cents in anyhow. In addition, the show turns up - high - on probably every top TV shows of all time lists (Rolling Stone has it at #23, IGN has it at #27 etc) you saying its a "shitty" show is flat out untrue. Its objectively a good show even if it wasnt to your tastes.

    And the dialogue was out of the 21st century, because modern viewers would laugh at what was considered "vulgar" back then, it would sound corny to our ears, and they wanted to represent the period as super vulgar. Thus the modern swears

    Actually, the dialogue was more Shakespearean with a tasty frosting of earthy 21st blue.

    If I remember correctly, Brokeback Mountain got great reviews too. Maybe you should watch that next.
    Yeah, I was ignorant as to how long it was because I watched it over 10 years ago, and thought it sucked then. Shit, 36 episodes seems like a lot compared to what you get these days. Maybe I was fresh off a few seasons of Lonesome Dove. I don't know, but I still think that it was some cheesy wannabe Sopranos western. It was some kind of soap opera that just so happened to take place in a town in the west.

    Uh....Lonesome Dove didn't have "a few seasons" bud. It was a 4 episode miniseries. Just sayin'.

    Apparently, there was a one season of "Lonesome Dove" staring Ricky

    Only noticed that entry because I had to go back and check the original's run to because it seemed so much more epic than 4 nights. RIP Augustus.

    Interesting, I was not aware. The miniseries is definitely one of the all-time greats as far as TV westerns go. My wife and I just watched it again a few months ago when it was on cable. It had been a while since I'd seen it. Great story and great actors.

    Looking forward to the Deadwood movie. It does have a lot to live up to after such a great series was canceled mid-story like that. Be interesting to see how they handle it.

    “Fleabag” is hilarious. Rude and crude, make sure the kids are asleep before you start it.

    So, this past Friday night I was rummaging through the offerings on AP, nevermind that I already have 900+ saved films/shows in my queue, and I began watching WE ARE TWISTED F***ING SISTER, a documentary about the titular band.
    It's a pretty bare bones docu, just interviews with all the band members, managers, label execs, and a few OG fans.
    I was transfixed.
    I mean they started in the mid-'70s and the ups and downs they endured were crazy.
    While I was never a fan of the band, yet like just about everybody else from the MTV generation, their ubiquitous hit "We're Not Gonna Take It" was unvoidable and stuck in my brain for years. FWIW, they were WAY heavier than that song would lead one to believe (heck, Lemmy from Motorhead was a fan).
    Without giving too much away, I learned that it took them 10 years to get signed, even though they were routinely selling out 3000+ venues on the East Coast and in the UK.
    This documentary is riviting just because it shows the tenacity these guys had and how f#$ked-up the record industry really can be.
    If you dig music, killer archival footage, and behind-the-scenes kind of stuff, this is a solid watch.

    So, after watching that killer docu on Twisted Sister that oft-times annoying Amazon Prime feature popped up (you know, the box in the right hand corner that says "Up Next" and they queue some movie you've never heard of). At any rate what popped up with HIRED GUN, another music oriented docu.
    I started watching it and was immediately hooked.
    It's about session musicians and features OG folks like Billy Joel's original band, Kenny Aronoff and young(er) guns like Jason Hook (Five Finger Death Punch).
    It has some truly great moments recalled by Steve Lukather (Toto), Ray Parker, Jr., Alice Cooper, Brad Gillis, Jason Newstead, and many others.
    FWIW, Billy Joel, Trent Reznor, and Richard Patrick (Filter) all come off like complete douchebags/assholes in terms of how they treated their longtime bands/backing musicians.
    While at times a bit heavy-handed, it still unveils a lot of behind-the-scenes elements of what it means to be a musician behind the musician.
    Highly recommended.

    Only other complaint is that they didn't include The Hooters since two of the founding members wrote, arranged, and played songs on Cyndi Lauper's debut album...

    Otherwise, they included a nice cross-section of musicians from pretty much every genre of music (except, perhaps, jazz) and they had a great sampling of session musicians who love their jobs and those that thought they were taken advantage of by the stars who hired them. Very interesting dichotomy in regards to the whole lifestyle of being an in-demand session player.
    Also too bad that they didn't include any of Zappa's former band members since he was known to hire great musicians, but changed members of his backing band frequently (they have a few short clips with Steve Vai, but nothing major).

    Amazon Prime Instant Video Rec

    Watching “Patriot” right now...laughing a bunch. It’s oddly engrossing for such an illogical plot line

    Catastrophe is probably my favorite rom-com kinda show in a long time, if not ever. Love the blatant disfunction, yet resilience of that couple. Really puts things in perspective.
