    i love it at times and go sideways at others. Can't decide but this week was certainly better than last weeks
    show

    Kind of reminds me of a music version of mad men

    Thoughts?

    it's hbo, definitely need to give it a few more episodes. it got renewed for season 2 early so they know/knew they had/have time to grow it. wish all the episodes were directed by martin scorsese. and some better versions (like the real thing) of alot of the songs they are playing covers for

    edit: jamie vine is hot and has a nice tight body goin on there

    First episode was two hours... Way to long
    Was all over the place. I'll maybe watch another one or two and see.

    Same here.

    Sometimes good, sometimes not so much.

    Jury is still out for me.

    I'll watch the second episode tonight.
    Lots of my friends are pissed off that it's so inauthentic.
    That's okay with me. Nothing can recreate that time in our lives with complete and total authenticity.
    Anyway, I'll watch it again.

    I'm liking it. The acting is good. Ray Romano is playing the same character he always plays but it works. It's keeping my attention and it's better than anything else I've tried watching lately. I didn't grow up in the 70s so I have no beef with the authenticity.

    I am enjoying it quite a bit. Well worth the hour investment a week.

    I thought the first episode was so-so. Haven't seen the second. The pilot had enough to make we give it some time. But it will have to get better quickly fast.

    Currently it is #3 on my current Sunday night watch list after Walking Dead and Billions (which also could be better considering the cast, but still very watchable).

    I like to have at least 4 episodes on the DVR before I start watching it.

    I'll binge watch the first 4 episodes and then if it still hasn't hooked me, I bail.

    I'll let you know.

    Same here...Bobby Cannavale (sp?) seems way too wired and hyper in this. Can't get into it. Who is he supposed to be a take off of Jimmy Iovine?

    I think Dice's guest spot deserves an Emmy or whatever award they give for TV guest performances. He was fucking off the hook. Also I really liked the first time I saw this show 30 years ago...it was called "Crime Story" ... and Dice was in that too....

    the pretentiousness of HBO is so high that's hard to give their shows an objective chance sometimes.
