TRUE DETECTIVE - SEASON 2
Wow, is all I can say. Wow to Pizzalota'man, wow to Mr. Farrell, Vaughn, and Miss McAdams, the whole cast. Most of all, wow to all the people who said this season was garbage...I cannot understand how you could not enjoy the hell out of this.....Do I still like Season 1 more? Yeah, a little. But you're comparing two TOTALLY different animals here. I think both seasons do their own thing and they do it extremely well. I really can't express how much I loved this season, especially after hearing all the negative reviews.
Please, oh please, Pizza Man.... give us Season 3.
Tarsem Singh's Emerald City (NBC) series premiere.
Kids aren't going to like this or people that want some Marvel Studios comedy. So if that's you, I would not bother with this show.
More Return To Oz (1985) film than the Wizard of Oz (1939) film.
I really liked the out-there fantasy. There wasn't any holding back. It makes me happy to see that on network TV.
Ending was kind of a strange/bad place to stop the story this week. Didn't really like where it stopped.
Dorothy was all right...kind of too restrained a performance I think though. How "Toto" becomes her dog after the disaster as she wears the police jacket was an interesting interpretation. She's a nurse from her prior existence before Oz in this interpretation.
The witch of the west is kind of like a disheveled and drunk Felicity Jones. A hot mess.
Don't know how much the quality will hold up after the premiere but I'll stick around to find out.
