Is it just me, or does it seem the arrangement does not fit the lyrics? Maybe so, but the music is so distracting I can't feel it. It's hard to argue how super talented Miley is and it's interesting to watch her mature a little. Finally.
Its a bad mix on the audio cause its bootleg but her performance was the rave of that show,I can tell you that.I am not a fan at all but thought this was noteworthy.The Prine thing sounds interesting.

Well, that about explains it. Didn't know the story behind it. Very interesting. Didn't know about the Deadwood movie either. When is the timeline for it to be out?

Best moment so far?

Sony Pictures Classics announced a full fledged John Prine documentary that will be released theatrically. It's a happy enchilada!

No way!

Season 1 was entertaining for sure. But imo, the reveals were a little cliche. Woody and McHonahey were what made the show so strong. With the interesting plot and noir style, it was captivating for those of us that enjoy the slow burn quality programming that HBO provides. Plus, from a filmaking standpoint, the "one shot" sequence when they are running through the houses was a thing of beauty.
Something else that garnered so much attention for the show was the fact that the show's creator, Nick Pizalotto wrote every single episode by himself and acclaimed director Carey Fukanowga directed every episode himself; both of which are extremely rare in the world of fictional television. This allowed a subtle consistency that we don't often get in our programming.

So.... The show was a massive hit, and HBO pressed Pizalotto to quickly move on to a second season which he did, although without the inspiration of the first season. It takes A LOT to craft 10 or more episodes of that quality by onesself in that timeframe. Most seem to agree that, while not terrible, the second season just cannot match up to how good the first season was.

HBO, showing why they are the quality content provider that they are said "Look Nick, we aren't cancelling the show... We messed up by rushing you. Take your time, a year, 2 years,  5 years, whatever... And when you have and idea, let us know."
And now we have season 3 and something that reselmbles the bar set by t5he first season.


On a side note, the Deadwood movie that HBO F I N A L L Y made is set to premiere on the service sometime this spring. 99 percent of the original cast returns. For my money, Al Swerington, played by Ian Mcshane, is one of the best characters in a dramatic series ever.

I have my beliefs, but I do not judge. Among all these things the greatest is love. This song is pure love and the intro in this clip explains it all...

I don't know.....she really struggled on the highs.  Chris was just one of those singers that cannot be imitated.  I did enjoy it though.
