Suprised there wasn’t a thread for this. The pilot of the JK Simmons Starz veichle has been available for a while. It has a 76 on metacritic. Will Simmons’ star power be enough to finally get Emmy attention for Starz?
It was… awful.
I accidentally posted in the film forum. Just fixed it.
This was boring and the writing was terrible. The characters actions barely made sense. JK Simmons was fine I guess. It was hard to stay awake during the whole hour. Way too long. I’m shocked it got good reviews.
Rough thread! I liked the premiere, it was entertaining enough. Obviously it’s a JK Simmons showcase more than anything, and he was really good. These crazy plot mechanics, potentially could be good in the right hands, or also the whole plot could fall to pieces really quick. Giving it a chance.
