Man Seeking Woman
I saw a brief commercial for this show after a teaser for It's Always Sunny new season (which is an awesome show, watch it). I don't normally find out about new shows before Neil so I was a bit tentative to ask him to add this to the list to record. I've been fired (not really but I don't have a great track record) from picking movies to watch at the theater so I wasn't sure about testing my luck on TV shows. If you liked the film Scott Pilgrim, you will like this, I'm sure of it. It's a bit more grown up in the subject matter, but it comes across like a real life comic book. LOVE IT so much so far. This is based off a book which I have added to my list to read.
Think grumpier, surlier House, and instead of a doctor he's a cop. Also has a bit of a film noir feel with the main characters flat delivery of his lines. This is also based on a book, actually a series of books. They are listed as "Scandinavian crime drama" which seems really specific. Is there are lot of books in that category? Either way, these too will be going on the list!
I love, love, LOVE the film of the same name so I was a bit wary of how the TV version would turn out. I didn't even know it had been made into a show until Neil clicked on it from our recorded list. I think it holds up pretty well on it's own. It's more new school comic book than old school comic book. If that makes any sense... Less cartoony. It seems like they are going more into depth into the story line and adding characters to help with the plot, so this keeps it interesting and different enough to be engaging. It can be a bit hard keeping track of the timeline, they do jump around quite a bit. The villains are definitely more sinister than the Bruce Willis edition as well!
