Penny Dreadful fans?

If you have Amazon Prime and want to watch another good series, check out "Fortitude" -- and especially if you like Dr. Victor Frankenstein. I've been watching Fortitude for several episodes, convinced that Dr. F is in it, but ... whaaaa....? Guess what? There are TWO of them:

Yes, twins, Luke and Harry Treadaway.

Oh, and Fortitude is worth watching no matter what. Takes place in Norway (?) on an island where people aren't allowed to die.

(ok, they can die, just not there. Or rather, can't be buried there, since nothing decays there. Which is the premise of the show, that a melting permafrost had unearthed a long-dead animal carrying some sort of disease that is now afflicting the townsfolk).

Check it out.

Deadwood: The Movie (really?!?)

Yes! Says Ian McShane here:


One project you mentioned earlier, we keep hearing thereís a Deadwood movie in development and David Milch is working on that script. Are you willing and able to reprise your role as Al Swearengen given your other commitments, and whatís the latest youíve heard on that?

Yeah! Of course Iíd love to reprise that. How could one not, when it was snatched away rather unjustly by a combination of forces weíll never know about? Hubris or money or whatever. But [Deadwood] certainly finished too early. At the time, most of us working on the show were incredulous. Itís been announced by HBO, so its not like Iím saying it. I know for a fact David is working on the script. Itís been 10 years since it finished. [Star Timothy Olyphantís] free from Justified. Iím hoping theyíll make the deal soon, for two or four hours, whatever they decide on. It was a very close knit group of actors on it. We got along very well. Iím sure David will decide to set it 10 years later, after the great fire or whatever happened in Deadwood. They havenít done the deal yet. They [were planning] to do it late this year or early next year.

Mad Dogs, on Amazon Prime

Never heard a word about this show, am into the fifth episode of the series. It's pretty amusing. Takes place in Belize, about 5 guys, childhood friends (Michael Imperioli (Christopher, Sopranos), Steve Zahn, Romany Malco (Weeds), Ben Chaplin and Billy Zane) -- getting themselves into trouble no matter what they seem to do. Dark humor.

Oh, and Molly from the series Fargo plays a similar character to her one on Fargo.


Hah! Teachers take note

The Gambler, on Amazon Prime

I expected this to be the typical gambler story, but I really enjoyed it. Mark Wahlberg is the main character, but the real, for me, show-stealer was Dan Goodman. He only had a few scenes, but they were memorable. Tarantino level memorable, imho.

Trying to get my money's worth on a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime. So far so good!

Question about the show "TURN" on AMC (spoilers?)

Rewatching the first two seasons so I can better understand what is happening in the current 3rd season.

Season 2 episode 5, the one that begins with Robert Rogers confronting Washington in Washington's own tent. At the end of that sequence, Washington has Rogers taken away, presumably to be locked up, right?

But later in that episode, after the French guy is dispatched with the King George ledger page, Rogers shows up again? WTF? No explanation, or did I miss it?

Even during the planning session about how to get that page back to France, Brewster is emphasizing to Washington how Rogers will do anything to stop the page from getting to France; at that point, why doesn't Washington say, "Oh him? Yeah, I had him taken away earlier." But instead, Washington is like "Oh yeah, we have to worry about Rogers intercepting this!"
