Amazon also make The Marvelous Miss Maisel, which is great as long as you don't look up the politics of its barmy creator - though I imagine if you were worried about politics you wouldn't be using Amazon in the first place.

I can't  watch it without thinking "Is this anti-Semitic? I just don't know."
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Binged the relatively short season 1 this week and absolutely loved it.

Spot on casting for most roles.
Elisabeth Shue knocking it out of the park, and Antony Starr somehow improving after an impressive 4 seasons of Banshee.

Just think what they could have done with the budget if they didn't have to dye Urban's beard with liquefied obsidian.

I'll watch the fecker, and like Tordelback, I enjoyed the comic, despite the nastiness and offensiveness.  But I can't help thinking that the TV series has taken away the driving forces behind some of its main characters; ie. Hughie has kind-of-forgiven A-Train already, and Butcher's missus isn't dead.  Also, Starlight doesn't have to hide her superness from Hughie, as everyone knew about it from the start.

I wonder when Crossed will be on telly?
