Wow, HBO is getting cool again.



Now that looks like a great new series. After having to endure some cancellations of some truly great shows like Deadwood, and Carnivale, while scratching my head at the continuations of mediocre shit like Entourage, and True Blood, HBO finally has another drama I'm interested in.

Thoughts?

An appealingly authentic drama starring Steve Buscemi (and maybe Omar from The Wire) that takes place in NJ, I'm definitely interested. And Scorsese having directed the pilot episode makes me look forward to the series that much more.

I'm surprised more people aren't talking about this series (though we can rest assured more will once it starts airing).

As Heretic said, HBO seems to be really getting their shit together for the next year or so.

Remember five (?) or so years ago? HBO had Carnivale, The Sopranos, Deadwood, The Wire, and Six Feet Under--a freaking amazing lineup. Now, it seems HBO is entering that second wind. We have Treme, we're going to get Boardwalk Empire, and then we'll be receiving Game of Thrones next year.

Good... 'effin... goodness.

Granted, True Blood and Big Love and such shows have tided me over, but none have really struck that insane obsessive cord in me. However, with this line up I think we can say HBO is gonna be back in prime form, ladies and gentlemen.

I can't wait for this series. The pilot episode is the most expensive one ever made and directed by Martin Scorcese. AND it's from the geniuses who made the Sopranos!
Count me in.

Does anyone know what projects he is working on, like How to Make it in America, Entreatment, and Boardwalk Empire? And when can we expect to see them?

I can't wait for this. It's good to see the likes of Michael K. Williams getting some more screen time and Buscemi has always been one of my favorite actors. Looks like a winner. Hopefully it doesn't get the same bums rush as Deadwood though.

I think this looks amazing, sadly I don't have "Showcase" which is what it's showing on here, but I'll defiantly be grabbing the DVD when it makes it's way to it.

This show is just amazing.
He's one of my fave characters.

I love the scene in the series finale when he blows away two of the Delesio brothers.

My original draw was Steve Buscemi. I think he is such an underrated actor. I think he is amazing. But then I got informed on the whole things plot and it just sounds so good, not to mention the rest of the cast looks strong.
