Stay out of his way, because Brother Justin is one unhappy anti-christ. Yowza.
Dark Horizons (via Reuters) reports that HBO has pulled the plug on its uneven depression-era mystical drama. I'm not too upset with the network, since it did renew my favorite (and television's best) show, The Wire. The critical accolades paid to David Simon's show may have allowed it to survive despite modest ratings, just as the lukewarm response to Carnivàle may have sealed its fate. Creator Daniel Knauf has a deal to produce a new series for 3rd-tier cable network Showtime, so I guess everyone will be moving on.
Damn. And the show was finally getting good. It just took too long to do so.
Since it's Wednesday, here's some fitting Waits, from 2004's Real Gone.
Unfortunately, Evil Sofie is stuck in eternal limbo, alongside Twin Peaks' Evil Cooper.
In more encouraging TV news, last nite's season one finale of Veronica Mars was ridiculous. Maybe not as good as last week's, but close enough. And oy vey, the cliffhangers! Mama Mars takes off with Veronica's college money - again! And what happened to Logan? And who was at Veronica's door at the end? I can't believe it still lost in the ratings to friggin' According To Jim!
I'm looking forward to season two (thanks UPN). Oh yeah, Papa Mars rules.
ETA: Oops. I almost forgot. Happy 30th birthday to Frank Chromewaves!
