View Full Version : John from Cincinnati

Looks like HBO has another hit. At least in my home. John from Cincinnati is, roughly, about a family of surfers who run into a stranger, the eponymous John, who seems to bring everything a person could want into that person's life.

Honestly, I'm not a writer. I cannot put into words exactly what went on in that last hour. But, I can tell you that I enjoyed it. I enjoyed it a lot.

Go to HBO.com and read up on it if you're interested.

I think David Chase sabotaged that debut.

Because I definitely wasn't in the mood to watch it.

I've recorded it, but yeah, anything that appears after the Sopranos, whether it's a gang of well-to-do dudes walking around Beverly Hills or a story about life and surfing, seems extremely unimportant in light of all the stuff that just went down before.

Before my scales were so unbalanced, though, I thought the show seemed to be reaching a bit too far into the religious allegorical based on the hype alone.
