first manimal, then the greatest american hero, and now, chips. is there any cultural detritus left to recycle? can my dreams of a holmes and yo-yo reboot be far off?

just watched the first episode of utopia which is a british sci-fi conspiracy thriller mashup. the second season (of six episodes, damn those brits and their short seasons) just wrapped up quite possibly today. it definitely got my attention, and hbos, too, as they are developing an american version with david fincher on board to produce and direct.

ive seen only very positive reviews for steven soderberghs turn of the 20th century medical drama the knick which premieres tonight on cinemax. its already been greenlit for a second season. sure you can find it if you look hard enough.

if you liked Lilyhammer you will love Welcome to Sweden.

And then there is Klovn, the Danish Larry David.

the bridge returns tonight for season two on fx. ive seen mostly positive reviews after a first season that was a mixed bag but former tv reviewer for the av club and now culture editor for vox isnt completely convinced.

anybody catch the leftovers premiere on hbo last night? a small town in the southwest deals with the aftermath of a world wide rapture-like experience. its full of cult-y weirdoes and latter day messiahs. its a co-adaptation between the author of the source material, tom perotta, and damon lindelof of lost infamy, which is a shadow that the show will fall under. already it seems that the central mystery of what happened will never be answered which is sure to frustrate if that is your expectation.

i wasnt completely smitten but it seems like an interesting enough concept to see where its headed if only to be told later that it is ultimately a family drama riven with symbolic intent.

more importantly i just read that the angsty daughter from the family at the center of the drama is andie mcdowell's daughter. upon verifying this fact i came upon this photo verifying that andie mcdowell's genes are well cared for heading into the future. hopefully whoever delivered the xy chromosome brought along some acting ability to add to the mix.
