I loved American Beauty. I was an avid Six Feet Under viewer. But if HBO thinks this show is going to be the white knight they so desperately need to regain their credibility and market share, I hope thery brought enough parachutes on board to survive this flight of fancy.
Oh, and those video montages in which a number of nobodies spoke strongly on a subject they didn't seem to know much more than we do, except for regurgitating the same old myths we have all become aware of from a myriad of vampire movies.
This latest venture only seems to confirm that as the field of cable netwurks continue to expand, HBO will get nosed out further and further from its once lofty position in the media.
I too was incredibly bored by this program, and am very unlikely to watch another ep. At this rate, I expect HBO to offer edgier programming in the future, including their new spring series which desperately glamorizes the lives of performers in snuff films.
Chance favors the prepared mind.
