  1. Westworld--TV Show

    Link to our thread for the movie Westworld, which is just a 9-year-old stub with one post from PTC. Variety:

    AV Club: In other words, each season of the show will have a different story and cast, a la American Horror Story.

  4. Fahrenheit 451

    Ramin Bahrani is going to direct an adaptation of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 for HBO. We don't seem to have a thread for the Truffaut film.
  5. The Wire (2002-2008)

    I'm two episodes shy of finishing the first season of HBO's the Wire. It's probably the best thing I've ever seen on TV, but it's also a show that requires some warnings; it's chock-full of vulgarity and violence (and a tiny bit of nudity, which seems like a requirement for HBO). The Wire was created by David Simon, who was responsible for the book that started one of my favorite shows (Homicide: Life on the Streets). The Wire is similar: it also takes place in present-day Baltimore, focusing on the police and drug-runners. It's ultra-realistic, almost unsettlingly so. But that's one of its virtues--focusing on the people, their lives and their flaws also provide ample for grace and character development. The thirteen episodes act almost as one giant 780-minute story, and I'm literally hooked. Anyone else like it (or hate it, for that matter)? I haven't made it this far yet, but the fourth season has probably the highest rating for a TV on Metacritic (a whopping 98!)
  6. Boardwalk Empire

    Here's the link to the book. Here's HBO's link to the show. The story's set during the Prohibition era about the rise of Atlantic City. Steve Buscemi looks the toughest I've ever seen him. Also has Michael Pitt (I hated him in Funny Games, or maybe I just hated the whole film), Michael Shannon (Pearl Harbor, Before the Devil Knows You're Dead), Stephen Graham (Sgt. Mike Ranney from Band of Brothers, Baby Face Nelson in Public Enemies), Kelly Macdonald (Choke, No Country For Old Men), and oh yeah, Michael Stuhlbarg (from A Serious Man).
  7. HBO: ... OLIVE KITTERIDGE tells the poignantly sweet, acerbically funny and devastatingly tragic story of a seemingly placid New England town wrought with illicit affairs, crime and tragedy, told through the lens of Olive (Frances McDormand), whose wicked wit and harsh demeanor mask a warm but troubled heart and staunch moral center. Richard Jenkins portrays Olive's husband, Henry. The story, which spans 25 years over the four parts, focuses on Olive, a middle-school math teacher, and her relationships with Henry, the good-hearted town pharmacist, their son Christopher, who chafes at his mother's parenting style, and other denizens of their community. The supporting cast features Golden Globe® winner Bill Murray ("Lost in Translation") as Jack Kennison, a widower befriended by Olive; John Gallagher, Jr. (HBO's "The Newsroom") as Christopher, Olive and Henry's son; Emmy® nominee Peter Mullan ("Top of the Lake") as Jim O'Casey, a fellow teacher at Olive's school; Rosemarie DeWitt ("Mad Men") as Rachel Coulson, a shut-in who is one of Henry's customers at the pharmacy; Zoe Kazan ("Ruby Sparks") as Denise Thibodeau, who works at the pharmacy; and Ann Dowd ("Side Effects") as Bonnie, a Kitteridge family friend ...
