    A very off-the-wall show. It seems to be fair to it, you've got to give it 3 episodes just to see if you can get into it, especially with something as odd as this.

    She forty-fucking-eight?

    Christ, she has aged well.

    On the other hand, Al Bundy (Ed O'Neil) looks like he's decomposing before our very eyes.

    Deadwood died for this crap? What a shame.

    I didn't get it. Thought the acting was pretty bad.

    I really miss Deadwood.
  6. I was about to say the same thing. I couldn't get through it last night but I attribute some of that to Sopranos-intoxication. HBO's track record is such that it's always worth being patient. The Wire is now my favorite show on TV but I'll admit the first few episodes were very slow because it was developing characters. The payoff was well worth it - the last half of the season was awesome.

    I have to imagine this show will move faster once the plot and characters are established.

    Is it better than Big Love?

    That was a show where I tuned in, liked it and then lost interest very quickly...

    Me, too. She's fiesty & angry in this show, too. Interesting.

    it is an odd, odd show. TV writer in yesterday's paper said to give it 3 episodes, which I suspect I will. Especially since it's summertime and the Sopranos are over and TV sucks. ;)

    Several reviews I've read all have the "give it three episodes" line. I suspect it's because HBO sent out three episodes to all the reviewers.

    Try searching for the definition of John's last name, Monad. It's some heavy philosophical stuff...
