    I thought it was good. Nothing earth-shattering but kept me entertained.

    Here’s to hoping that all the armed maniacs in the country hold off their killing sprees until at least tomorrow after we get our Mr. Robot finale.

    Has anyone watched Narcos yet? I’m deciding on getting into Ray Donovan or Narcos (after i plow through Mr. Robot). I have a weird preconceived bias towards Robot since it’s on USA Network.

    Ok,  I guess I see why they were hesitant to show that last week.

    I can’t believe this Impractical Jokers live thing tonight.  5 story high wire walk.

     

     

    No fucking way would I even go on that platform.

    So who knocked at the door?

    They set up Season 2 very well.

    Was on the fence after two episodes of Narcos.

    After four, I’m in.  Still, it’s just good, not great.

    Sutter interview

     

    DEADLINE: A moment on the Sons prequel. It seems an opportunity to capture an Easy Rider vibe with these returning disenfranchised Vietnam vets, but now the conversation is about the Mexican biker gang the Mayans, from Sons Of Anarchy. Beyond servicing a Sons fan base clearly not ready to let go, what else can you tell about vision and how much of this stuff is actually real?
    SUTTER: At some point I do have plans to hopefully do the prequel, which I do see as a one-off 10- or 12-episode thing where we begin in Nam and see John Teller and Piney and see how that relationship got created, and bring them back to the States and the obvious external dynamics that were going on with the country and the perception of the war and what an odd kind of perception these vets got when they returned home. And then have it be the development of the club, ending before we start to get too close to some of the mythology that’s already been established.

    DEADLINE: What about the Mayans club story line?
    SUTTER: The Mayan thing happened as I was talking to Eric Schrier, one of the FX executives I’ve known since The Shield. We were talking about the idea of doing things for other markets, like the Spanish-speaking market. I casually said I’d be open to doing something with the Mayans. It’s the same [biker] subculture, but it’d be interesting to see the influences of that culture and how it impacts the subculture we already understand. I would do a contemporary piece, not a prequel, and place it far enough away from Northern California that it wouldn’t step on the mythology that’s already been told. It doesn’t mean that there couldn’t be some cool, ironic crossovers with familiar characters as the series progressed. I wouldn’t want to set it too close to the world we already know, and step on that. It would be cannibalizing what we worked very hard to create and I wouldn’t do anything to undermine. We’re figuring out what that would look like and I’m in the process of meeting with writers and narrowing it down. My intent is, over the hiatus I’ll initiate a script for the pilot and take it from there.

    Mr. Robot season finale was underwhelming.  9 excellent to superb episodes and that hot mess.

    I can’t believe how funny “Review” is.  Trust me and Chico.   :lol:

    Finished “Narcos”. Liked it more and more as it went on.

    It is so good. Not often you see a show that consistently funny. Very difficult to have a comedy be that even.

    Check out Andy Daly’s podcasts on Earwolf. He appears as a bunch of characters on Comedy Bang Bang and then he did The Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project in which he did a series of single show based on some of those characters.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    My agenda is truth.

    there really is never a letdown.  The anguish on his dad’s face as he geared up to shoot the apple off his face :lol:

    even the little details- the end of Fred Willard’s speech in the wedding video

    Fred Williard going into space from Season One is still the best.

    Lately it’s AJ’s reaction shots and comments to Forrest that are killing me. :lol: And her weird enthusiasm for him to use his veto.

    “The Bastard Executioner”, anyone? :lol:

    The pilot is two hours and five minutes long. Five of those minutes will involve a musical montage of the various characters in soul-seeking mode. I might catch it when FX puts it on their On-Demand roster, but Sutter lost me after the fifth season of SoA.

    So the guy who plays Kevin in The League has apparently been telling everyone in interviews and podcasts that he was working on the 54th floor of the south tower when the first plane hit, and that inspired him to quit his day job and move to LA to become an actor/standup.

    Yeah, I guess he wasn’t there at all.

    He and Duplass’ real life wife suck on that show. I’m happy he has been exposed as a fraud. Couldn’t even choose a company that had offices in the buildings.

    He’s definitely the weakest link, but she is so hot I’m not sure it matters how good an actress she is. Duplass is such a liebral weenie, I can’t believe he’s married to her.
