New "Acting School" with International Film and Television Star Nick Searcy

Funny, again.

Last night's show was damned good. I think it was the best premiere they've done. Right off the bat they made Raylan more interesting. Two of the best shows last season were about Raylan's law-breaking to avoid his ex-wife Winona getting arrested for her own law-breaking. (She impulsively stole $20,000 from police evidence and then didn't know what the hell to do-- she immediately thought better of it.) So this season they introduce the idea that Raylan is now illegally (or at least very contrary to employer policy) running down fugitives for a bounty hunter in his spare hours, for $3000 a pop.

The whole show last night was about Raylan doing one of these off-book jobs, and then trying to fix things -- without attracting any police attention -- when unexpected events began to spin things into complication and disaster. So it looks like Raylan, who has a lot of hell-raising, anger, and law-breaking in him by birth, is going to spend the season dancing on a knife's edge.

There was no Nick Searcy, but, almost making up for it, the show introduced what I hope will be a recurring plot element, which I call "Partial Nudity." And what glorious partial nudity it was. Not the typical Partial Nudity networks have been "daringly" showing ever third month for ten years now, by which I mean male partial nudity. I mean real partial nudity, like a chick with T&A all over the place.

Porn's been around so long now I forgot what a nice little thrill it was to see partial nudity. I used to scour the HBO guide for that "content warning advisory" (which was really just an advertisement for the movie).

I actually rewound it twice (total of three times viewing). Yes, I did. I bet a lot of you did too.

So, season's off to a great start. Damn fine episode with Raylan beginning to drift into the gravitational fields of his crazy criminal father and crazy criminal friend, and a heaping helping of butt and sideboob.

They had me at butt and sideboob,* but then they attached a whole show to the end of it. Well done, International Film and Television Star Nick Searcy. Well done.


* Actually I have a bad suspicion they already decided they'd show Timothy Olyphant's ass, in some kind of play for female viewers, and realized that would piss the show's many male viewers off (given that there has been no female nudity). So I think they are pre-mollifying us to keep us from getting mad later. I think it's a pre-mitigation effort.

But for the moment, I approve.
