    I think the best drama to watch on Sunday's in Philly will be the Eagles' QB controversy once Kolb is healthy. ;)

    I really enjoyed it. But I need to go back and watch it again. I spent so much time time trying to enjoy the scenery and set, that I dropped the story line enough to loose the characters and their historical significance.

    I agree. I loved the look of it. The colors were really cool. I'm not sure what shade of blue that rolls royce was, but I kept thinking how pretty it was.

    Sunday's premiere pulled in 4.8m viewers (HBO promptly renewed it for a second season).

    We really liked it too. But some of the dual scenes were really hard to follow. Like the comedian talking while an action scene was happening. It sort of distorted things for me.

    I really liked it. There are a lot of characters being introduced so I will have to watch it (1st episode) again.

    I never knew Henry Ford was a Nazi...

    Weak stuff. Old Man Scorsese phoned it in. You see that incredibly cheezy fog effect on the boats? When they killed the Shroeder guy, they cut to him lying on the bottom in shallow water, then in the master, he's floating ON TOP OF THE WATER. That's just inexcusable for an HBO show, the Sopranos never suffered lazy mistakes like that.

    Love Buscemi as we all do, but he can't pull of a lead of this magnitude. It's unpleasant seeing him in bed with babes, just doesn't work. He weighs about 78 pounds and they have him beating up a guy twice his size. Embarrassing. Gandolfini made all that work. Buscemi was perfect as his weird cousin. That's what works for him, the weird character actor. Or the anti-hero in Ghost World or Trees Lounge. Not the charismatic lead role. Makes no sense.

    Michael Pitt and Kelly MacDonald are terrific. She's always great. But this is such tired, depleted ground. Between The Roaring 20's, The Untouchables, Pete Kelly's Blues, The Road to Perdition, and all the Eddie Robinson flicks this whole flapper rum-running gangster routine is shop-worn and frankly boring. Been there, done that. Way too many times.

    Buscemi has all the mob boss menace of an Arnold Stang in a Chunky's commercial.

    Exactly what Michael Lombardo would do. Between True Blood waterskiing like the Fonz, Hung, Big Love, the miserable and tiresome Treme, and the show that's answers the question nobody was asking: Game of Thrones, and now this mess, HBO has many longing for the good old days of Rome, The Sopranos, Entourage (seasons 1-3 of course), Sex and the City, Deadwood and Six Feet Under (the first two seasons, it pulled a True Blood in season 3).

    I place The Pacific in limbo. Beautifully mounted, but brutally overlong, repetitious and tedious with little forward dramatic momentum. Certainly a passionate anti-war piece, but as drama, flat as a pancake.

    Chris Albrecht was the god of The Golden Years of HBO. After he left to get replaced by a beancounter, it's been nothing but waterskiing downhill.
