Re: Get Shorty - EPIX Sunday

Hollywood and the Mob - no horse heads yet, but give it time. I was surprise to find that the first three episodes are available on On-Demand EPIX.

An interesting pair of hitmen - a family man and a practicing Mormon. I'm enjoying Ray Romano as the Hollywood producer who reluctantly partners up with the hitmen to produce a film. The Mob boss, Amara, is also a unique character and fun to watch and she has an interesting backstory that is explored. The character "Shorty" has been revealed and I am a little surprised given the title. We'll see where that goes.

Adam Arkin is a producer and director of several episodes and his brand of dark comedy is stamped all over the place. With a great cast and good writing so far, I'll definitely be watching this one.

Re: Get Shorty - EPIX Sunday

I am enjoying Ray Romano in this. He plays a sort of washed up Hollywood schmoozer pretty well. Most of the films he made were mostly flops, but still holds a low end rickety office on the studio lot. Things seem to be looking up with his new investors.

I'ts fun watching Chris O'Dowd as an Irish hitman wanting a change of career when he acquires a movie script from one of his victims. I find myself a little sympathetic as he tries to repair his marriage and relationship with his daughter until I remember his profession. Unfortunately he's still using his "muscle" tactics so that sympathy goes right out the door.

His hitman sidekick, who is "the script writer", reminds me a little of Will Ferrell as "The Anchorman" but not as funny and can turn on the dime and off someone.

I'm kind of enjoying this but some parts are excruciating like the "writer", who has absolutely no clue about the script or how to write and tries to wing it as he's given some changes from the studio execs. There's also a parallel story going on about the Las Vegas Mob to which they are attached, run by ruthless Amara who wants what she wants, and will do away with anyone who doesn't meet her demands or lies to her. And of course Miles (O'Dowd) is all about the lies.

Re: Get Shorty - EPIX Sunday

The sidekick "writer" is so dumb that I can't suspend my disbelief enough as he's stumbling through with pretending to be a legitimate screenwriter. He reminds me of Angel Martin, Rockford's not-so-bright conman friend, and even he's more intelligent than this guy, Louis. It's excruciating watching him.
