Yellowstone

A ranching family in Montana faces off against others encroaching on their land...



Seems like a Hollywood re-enacted and dramatized version of historic events, yet very entertaining. We've watched the pilot and first episodes and are intrigued... have a good binge y'all!

"City on a Hill"   with Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge about crime and justice in early 90s Boston. Bacon is a sleazy FBI agent and townie who wants to ride out his career doing as little as possible. Hodge is a DA from Brooklyn who as black man has to eat a lot of crap from Boston cops. But he wants "to rip out the f$&ked-up machinery in this bull$4it city" and intends to start by prosecuting townies from Charlestown who keep robbing armored trucks. 

I grew up in the Boston 'burbs—a completely different world—and worked for a while in Boston during the early 90s. The first episode feels very, very real and makes me glad I didn't stay in Boston. Back then it was run by men just as corrupt, racist, and run-down as the city. But the show is very good; one reviewer compared it to "The Wire" and that might be spot-on. At times, Bacon is a bit hammy and seems to be channeling James Gandolfini's Tony Soprano in a "hey how you doin" mood, but he's the shifty star. Hodge smiles through the racist crap casually tossed his way but he's quietly determined to shake up the town. 

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon and Barry Levinson are some of the executive producers. Damon AFAICT grew up in Wellesley, a rich Boston western suburb and likely never had a lot of first-hand experience with the city's gritty ugliness. Affleck grew up closer in town—mostly in Cambridge which has a lot of scruffiness beyond MIT and Harvard. You could tell Affleck had experience with the local blue-collar areas from his work as director and co-screenwriter on the great movie "Gone Baby Gone."  I mention Levinson because he was executive producer and I think one of the driving forces behind the brilliant series "Homicide: Life on Streets." That series and this one put in a lot of work on developing character and feel. 
 
Flip it.  Damon was born and grew up in Cambridge; Affleck was actually born in California, but his family moved to Falmouth (near Cape Cod) before settling in Cambridge, which is where they met.

 

To me, Affleck is much better at portraying blue-collar characters than Damon. When I watch Damon on a big screen, I see a guy who wants to be an actor. He's just not that convincing. The difference between George Clooney and Brad Pitt on one hand and Damon on the other in "Ocean's Eleven" was like night and day. 

I never saw "Goodwill Hunting", so Damon might have been great in that role. 

Edit: You were right, Mary, about Damon growing up in Cambridge. I was under the impression that he was a bit of a Ricky Silverspoons which according to Wikipedia ain't the case.

We watched all three seasons of The Fall, which started out good, then faded to "why are we bothering?"

Gillian Anderson eventually just whispers, which is freaking annoying.

But - at one point she needs to get into a chain link fence and says to her help "FETCH THE BOLT CUTTERS" - which is where Fiona Apple says she got the name of her latest album, so there's that.

Anyway, don't bother.

I saw an episode of Atkinson as Maigret—he was good. If you're into the character, Michael Gambon played Maigret as well for 12 episodes back in the early 90s.

Another reason to have Prime—if you're into detective series: "Bosch" starring Titus Welliver. Season 6 dropped today.
