When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans.
Netflix’s Bloodline returns for its third and final season on May 26th.
If it’s been a while since you watched the first two seasons and need to refresh your memory – without re-watching the show’s first 23 episodes in their entirety – Netflix has put together a dandy little four-and-a-half-minute recap video just for you.
If you’ve never watched Bloodline but are curious, the video is, essentially, one hundred percent spoilers – but lacking a lot of context.
Netflix has posted a behind-the-scenes featurette that introduces us to Bloodline’s central characters, The Rayburn Family. Right now it looks like Bloodline is likely to be a slow burn, high emotion saga of a family struggle in the Florida Keys. Coming from the creators of Damages, and with a cast that includes Kyle Chandler, Sam Shepard, Sissy Spacek, Ben Mendelsohn, Norman Leo Butz and Linda Cardellini, that could make some potent viewing.
Check out The Rayburns after the jump. Bloodline premieres on March 20th.
Netfix’s new series starring Kyle Chandler has a name – Bloodline – and a haunting teaser trailer.
The series, which premieres all thirteen first season episodes on March 15, 2015, also stars Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises), Linda Cardellini (Mad Men), Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff), Sissy Spacek (Carrie), Norbert Leo Butz (Dan in Real Life), Jamie McShane (Sons of Anarchy), Jacinda Barrett (Suits) and Enrique Murciano (Without a Trace).
Bloodline comes from the producers/creators of Damages, from the producers of Damages Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessler. Check out the teaser following the jump.
I’ve had my review copy of Freaks and Geeks: Yearbook Edition for awhile – but only now have I managed to get through all of its many features. This is the kind of DVD package that you have to actually see, full-size, to really appreciate.
Freaks and Geeks, of course, is the classic one-season wonder set in 1980 that revolved around siblings Lindsay [Linda Cardellini] and Sam Weir [John Francis Daley]. Unlike other shows that used metaphors for “high is hell” [Buffy the Vampire Slayer], or “high school is cruel” [Veronica Mars], Freaks and Geeks proud asserted that high school is real – and it may seem earth-shattering while you’re, but in the end? It’s high school. By using siblings who were at different ends of the school population’s periphery, the series [all eighteen episodes] gave us a look at an institution that was far more real than we’d seen before – and because we saw it through the filter of a newbie freak [Lindsay] and an entrenched geek [Sam], it brought back all the epic highs and devastating lows of that period of our lives.
