NFT: Amazon pilot season

jgambrosio : 3/20/2017 9:47 pm
Watched a few Friday night.

- Oasis - I was wondering who from Game of Thrones was going to branch out first (other than those already famous). Could be one of the better new sci-fi shows out there?

- The Legend of Master Legend - didnít grab me. Some people will love it, just not my thing.

- The New VIPs - I liked the Life and Times of Tim, but like this, I donít see it lasting. Too niche of an audience and after seeing some of the reviews, some people are pissed off at Amazon for making a show with dick jokes.

Anyone seen any of the other new ones?
Can't wait for Bosch

Red Oaks was good. Can't say much else in the Amazon catalog has grabbed me.

Agree on both. Mad Dogs was entertaining. Sneaky Pete wasnít bad either. The wife loves The Man in the High Castle but I couldnít get hooked. A lot of people like Transparent too. I do want to try Patriot at some point.
Only watched pilot of Sneaky Pete

Seemed kind of meh to me. I'm no TV snob but I feel like Amazon and Netflix and the like should do something I'm not gonna see on CBS when I'm visiting my grandma. Sneaky Pete seemed like something she'd like. Maybe it gets better after the pilot?
Bosch is great.

Also Mozart in the Jungle is great too.
Sneaky Pete was very good.

I second Mozart in the Jungle. The relatively short episode length make it easy to get into, and though the pacing may not be to everyone's liking, I actually really appreciate the episodes in which very little actually "happens," aside from watching characters interact in ways that are entertaining and interesting.

Plus, Hailey is hot.
I think most of Amazon's stuff is pretty good

with the exception of Betas and Transparent. Transparent gets a ton of critical acclaim, and I can't understand why. I just don't find it funny, despite not having a problem with the subject matter and the fact that Jeffrey Tambor is in it and I find him funny in just about anything.

started out very promising, but then didn't deliver satisfactorily on very many of those promises. Still, it has its moments.
