Some Amazon Pilots Reviewed
Since we the people get to decide which TV series get made on Amazon and which don't, here are my thoughts thus far.
"Mad Dogs": Just stupid and gross. Bad and wrong. Buncha guys acting like dicks. Pass.
"Salem Rogers": Not bad. Overly-rehabbed actress gets out and tries to make a comeback. Her catch phrase: "Right on, tampon." Pretty funny. Mildly embarrassing. Make it filthier.
"Down Dog": So stupid I can't even remember what it's about except yoga.
"The New Yorker Presents": Interesting! Fun for intellectual types. Marina Abramovic talks art, and Tyrone Hayes talks frogs. Recommend.
"Cocked": Haven't watched this one yet but am very interested. Guns! No network bullshit so whatever on politics. Well timed, what with SHOT Show and all.
"The Man in the High Castle": Terrible name! Best show. SO INTRIGUING. We lost the war and half the country belongs to Hitler and half the country belongs to the Japanese. Stupid white Americans are everybody's bitch. Really beautiful and fascinating and love.
"Point of Honor": Hate old timey shit so no comment at press time.
Also: moar "Transparent," please.
