732227, Black Monday (Showtime, 2019)
Posted by navajo joe, Fri Oct-19-18 03:43 PM
This is a HELL of a trailer:



Cast: Don Cheadle, Regina Hall, Andrew Rannells, Ken Marino (playing twins?!), Casey Wilson, Bruce Dern, Horatio Sanz and Kadeem Mothafuckin Hardison


BLACK MONDAY takes viewers back to October 19, 1987 – aka Black Monday, the worst stock market crash in the history of Wall Street. To this day, no one knows who caused it … until now. It’s the story of how a group of outsiders took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street and ended up crashing the world’s largest financial system, a Lamborghini limousine and the glass ceiling. Starring Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannells and Regina Hall.

The trailer gets me hyped every time I see it.

Regina is having some year. I wonder what other actresses she beat out for this role next to Cheadle.

Cheadle's role feels very similar to the one in House of Lies, but with a crazy hairstyle and I think Regina will shine. Looking forward to the season.
733130, This really did feel a lot like

House of Lies with Coke sprinkled on it...

But I loved it and I might start my Showtime again just for this.

I thoroughly enjoyed this, thought it was a helluva pilot.
They've got me for another couple episodes for sure. I imagine I'm in for the first season.
733140, I hope this does well

I loved the first episode and the main cast is fucking amazing. I really feel like Don and Regina are going to bring it. It does feel like House of Lies and I haven't read up on the writing team but I hope they can balance the drama and comedy.
733261, It was cool. Don was too much "Marty" for me though. I liked Regina's...

character. And I really dug everyone else.

Don was just too much "Marty" for me though.

I was excitedly waiting for this to show to premiere. I enjoyed it too. Maybe Don will have turned that off a bit in other episodes.

Otherwise, I'm looking forward to the return of Billions.
733394, Episode 2... I can take everyone except for Don Cheadle.

The prank was cool at first. Then, everything else about it just seemed unbelievable.

Right now, I'm sorta disappointed and am just ready for Billions to make a comeback.
733437, Pilot was fantastic.

I didn't like the 2nd episode as much. Also caught me off guard because it was only half an hour and pilot was an hour.

So it's a half hour comedy? that's totally fine by me.
We don't have enough premium channel half hour comedy imo.

733812, Didnt really like the first two eps, Ep 3 is where it gets rolling *spoilers*

Into a 80's House of Lies rip off.

It's okay I guess. I didnt like the pilot too much, and the 2nd ep was saved by the Nintendo joke (i think that was ep 2), but the more the show goes along, especially since we know the end game, it just feels very Marty Kahn-ish. From the contstant put downs between the co-workers, to the "will they/wont they (again) between Mo and Dawn,it really does feel like we've seen this all before.

I'll prolly finish the season out though


Fuck aliens




The Greatest Story (N)ever Told (finished)

733815, im enjoying it so far
