Storyline

The Get Down focuses on 1970s New York City – broken down and beaten up, violent, cash strapped — dying. Consigned to rubble, a rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers are nothings and nobodies with no one to shelter them – except each other, armed only with verbal games, improvised dance steps, some magic markers and spray cans. From Bronx tenements, to the SoHo art scene; from CBGBs to Studio 54 and even the glass towers of the just-built World Trade Center, The Get Down is a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco — told through the lives and music of the South Bronx kids who changed the city, and the world…forever.

Stranger Things, In a small town where everyone knows everyone, a peculiar incident starts a chain of events that leads to the disappearance of a child – which begins to tear at the fabric of an otherwise peaceful community. Dark government agencies and seemingly malevolent supernatural forces converge on the town, while a few locals begin to understand that there’s more going on than meets the eye.

The Night Of Naz is a strait-laced Pakistani-American student who is off to a must-attend party on a Friday night. His only available transportation being his father’s taxi cab, Naz sets off into Manhattan. But his party-going plans are quickly forgotten when a mysterious young woman jumps aboard in need of a ride. Charmed by her intense intrigue and good looks, Naz gets swept up by her pressures. After a mind-altering night of drugs and passion, the woman is dead, and Naz finds himself in the crosshairs of a gruesome murder investigation, panicked and shaken, but possibly with a trace of doubt as to his own innocence.

The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story There are few truly unifying events in American life. When something happens that makes the entire country stop and take notice, we remember it forever. Everybody remembers where they were when O.J. Simpson, riding in a white Bronco, led the police on a low-speed chase all over Los Angeles. This marked the emergence of the 24-hour news cycle and the birth of reality television.

Horace and Pete I have watched a lot of Louis CK’s stand up comedy and it seemed to me that his amazing humour came from him extracting the absurdity of life and him talking about it on stage in a way that was both very funny, honest, and engaging, which is not easy feat I think (the feat being presenting the absurdity and confusing nature of life in way that both the presenter and audience can laugh together at it, as opposed to be terrified/confused/annoyed by the confusing universe). Even though the episodes of Horace and Pete feel formatted more in the way of a play, to me it is still fantastic in the same way. Family and life can be infuriating because as we grow up we see that the more we know about family/life/universe the more we realize that we don’t know (that whole Socrates thing), but that doesn’t mean we give up hope … instead we can find it absurdly funny and laugh in the face of absurdity, and try and learn from it, and move forward in a better way, especially when there is a master funny man like Louis CK to extract amazing funny thought lines from the absurdity. In this way it is an honest reaction to the confusing nature of life instead of simply trying to create a sanitized narrative to our lives that might make us feel less fear, but doesn’t really address the reality. Anyways, that is more my emotional mumbo jumbo response to why I think this is a really good show, but in more specific terms I find the dialogue really great, the acting great, and the jokes great, and therefore I find it … very great! Thanks Louis CK!

Billions,Based on the writing and characterizations alone, this show, right out of the box, would be a 9.

That is a serious statement and I think it will hold up. Not only do these scripts go into areas of finance that the public has not been privy to (credit Andrew Ross Sorkin of TOO BIG TO FAIL fame) but, I kid you not, in this show the men talk like men and the women talk like bigger men. And it works a treat.

They could have stopped there. But, no, they went for the casting coup of the century. Giamatti against Lewis. Giamatti, who could not give a weak performance if he tried, out-does all his prior film work. Which is also an amazing statement to make. It is as if he wants this show to replace his entire highlight reel.

And then Lewis. How talented is this guy?? He not only played an American traitor — brilliantly — and had to work with Claire Danes (not as easy as it looks) but effortlessly switches to billionaire tycoon without missing a beat.

The only thing missing from the IMDb profile page is a list of the awards this show won. Check back a year from now for that.
