I have seen episodes of the anime, didn't know there was a live action series in the works. should be promising as hell, the producer of sherlock and doctor who is involved and I'm big fan of both.

Yeah, i was shocked when i heard Monster was being made on HBO. I used to work at Time Warner, and the head of the movie division at some point was anime crazy and bought up licenses up the ass for movies, Bleach, Naruto, a lot of obscure things to. They are farming them out now to be made before they expire.

interesting, I hope they do a good job with them and don't rush. some of those series lend itself more easily to live action or film adaptation. For live action adaptation, i actually find most japanese versions to be quite lacking, they make it too much about the cosplay instead of just making a good movie/show.

what did you do at time warner? and good luck with interview tomorrow

I'm an analyst/finance manger/acct mgr. Did a lot of different things. I liked that I had friends in funding so i knew in advance (years) what movies were approved. Bleach for instance was approved for funds for next year. It might have been cancelled though. Godzilla was another one i knew, Pacific Rim I posted about on the board.

Finally saw the first episode. This was as well-done as anything I've seen on TV. Matthew McConaughey is killing it right now. He's probably gonna win the Oscar and the Emmy within the next year. What a run he's having. Makes you wonder what he'd be if he hadn't wasted his talents for 10 years on shitty rom-coms. Dude coulda been a legend

Second episode also great... We are just two episodes in and I'm already feeling like this is one of the greatest shows ever created

I have a fear that it will have a shitty ending though...:\... I'm hyping it up to much already I think

When something seems this great it usually end up letting down

Cohle: Well I'd just apply a couple pounds of pressure. Snap your wrist... You seeing me, detective? Think I'm lying?

This character has some fucking potential. Great acting, great dialogue. Intellectual but mentally messed up. Not a meathead, but definitely not a pussy.

I love how they keep adding intoxicants to the table when Cohle is getting interviewed. Starts with a cigarette, then a six-pack, then a flask. I'm waiting for him to start shooting up.
