Standard "I could have sworn we already had a thread" crap applies.....


New Trailer.

Poor Simon. :(
I guess we see for sure that it's not a recurring role.

Mob City, or as it's known elsewhere: Boardwalk Empire minus the breasts, language and bloody violence. Oh and Steve Buscemi.

I'm completely unfamiliar with L.A. Noire, and I'm pretty sure there are already a bazillion movies about Mickey Cohen, but Frank Darabont made something pretty special with The Walking Dead (which was quickly shat upon by AMC), so I'll definitely be there for this one.

That's my thoughts. The previews they've shown so far LOOK real pretty. Will have to wait an see if there's any substance behind it. The cast is decent, too

This was very well-made, but the main character was kind of a blank slate. In a world full of "gray hats," it's a little disappointing that all of the morally questionable plot twists hinge on the love of a good woman. The characters around him are infinitely more interesting, and Robert Knepper brings the same memorable mix of puckish humor and volatile rage that left such an impression as T-Bag on Prison Break. I'm down for more. It'll be interesting to see what happens to the powder keg that is Los Angeles now that there's a power vacuum at the top.
