Very much looking forward to seeing this.

I just tried adding it to my queue, and it came up as Blue Ray discs and says it's available Tuesday. OTOH, having seen it on Showtime, I never want to see it again.

I definitely plan on watching, but will have to DVR it to spread it out a little.

This is also the kind of programming that seems to get little attention here.
