They killed 'Deadwood' for this?!?

    Needless to say, SFGate's Tim Goodman is not pleased with "John From Cincinnati."

    I was wavering whether to watch it or not, but even the preview clips didn't jump out at me.

    The main thing that jumped out at me from the preview following the Sopranos: Al Bundy looks like he's 70 freaking years old. :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Not really on topic, but thanks for reminding me that I wanted to program my TiVo to record Flight of the Concords.

    You might want to program it to record Flight of the Conchords if you're interested in the new HBO show.

    That sounds like as bad a band name as the Oneders.

    I'll watch it before I pass judgment, but the previews aren't the best...

    HBO is usually as reliable as they get, but they did put out that Lisa Kudrow show and the terribly overrated "Extras"

    That's HBO's self-appointed job: to bring out shows that'd never have a chance on regular tv, ala "The Comeback" and "Extras."

    I thoroughly enjoyed the comeback. The pain in watching it was its beauty.

    On "John," I understand that HBO's disappointed with it, as well and has cut back on the number of eps they've ordered.

    How about a link, eh? Or should I jump in my Charlie Kauffman-inspired Being (John) Lantaur machine to see what you're reading?

    I'll give the show a chance. A few critics thought Big Love wasn't much good when it first started, and I enjoyed the hell out of it by the end of the season. Plus, it's much easier to get in on a show from the ground floor. I never gave Six Feet Under a chance when it first started, and now the prospect of watching six seasons is just too daunting.
