    he's great, but he's also pretty one note. try to picture him leading anything that's not him being a stoic smartass, especially anything that needs actual movement below the neck other than wide shots of him walking. I like the dude a lot, but he has a really narrow range. he's all charisma and presence, which is fine, but he really doesn't have much actual acting chops.
    I disagree... I think his portrayal of Raylan is as nuanced, layered and complex as just about any character in TV, bar none. And maybe like Basketball Fan mentioned, his lack of a notable movie career is more his doing than his lack of ability to land quality roles... but I'm a little bummed that we didn't at least get a couple of disposable beat-em-ups from him last decade.

    About five years ago, my brother and I started an extremely detailed pitch for a new Batman movie trilogy based on the Knightfall storyline, and we used Olyphant as our template for a late-30s Batman. I'm really happy with Affleck (though the movie was extremely lackluster) so now I guess my daydreams will have to be Olyphant as Harvey Dent.

    Anyone watching Stranger Things on Netflix? I've watched 5 of the 8 episodes so far, and I'm really enjoying it. Great throwback to 80s movies with good cast and story.

    Only 2 episodes in but it's really good. I knew nothing of it until I saw some hype online about it, peculiar why Netflix didn't seem to promote it basically at all, if they did I missed it entirely.

    Also, if you're on the fence, it's set in small town Indiana in the mid-80s and they set the scene pretty well for any of you guys that lived through/grew up in the 80s.

    Also also, those unknown kids can act their butts off.

    Already finished all 8. Fantastic. You will be blown away by the last episode. Can't wait for season 2. Stephen King gave this series rave reviews.

    If it's any consolation, HBO confirmed Deadwood the movie is a go as soon as the creator/director David Milch is ready. Ian McShane has agreed, but no word on Timmy yet.

    Just finished it last night. My only problem is I've got no more episodes to watch! The children do a great job acting in this show. Eleven was great.

    I've never seen Deadwood, but my neighbor made me promise to watch the series before the movie gets released. He said it is a must-see

    I watched parts of the first two episodes. Seems like a well done show, but I'm not going to continue to watch. Too much supernatural stuff for me. Plus I don't have time to watch a lot of shows. Right now I'm hooked on House of Cards.

    Finished Mad Men. Great show, but the finale was a bit underwhelming.

    It's great. I didn't watch it until after the series was cancelled and when I got to the end I was so confused about how it was pulled.

    My favourite ever show. I suppose the profile pic is a give away.

    I thought it was a satisfactory ending. Could have been better, could have been worse.

    Yes, 2 thumbs up for "Stranger Things" on Netflix. At least to the halfway point of the season. 4 episodes in and I think it's been fantastic. Excellent acting and direction. They've done a great job of setting the 80's vibe of the time period in a realistic way. It looks like it was shot in the 80's in a small town in Indiana... not in a "Sixteen Candles" kind of way. It's not that kind of a show.

    It's like an X Files if the X Files was done well and theatrically. X Files meets Twin Peaks meets Lost.... meets Twilight Zone? Not sure how to explain it... Just watch it.
    Nuntius was right for a while. I was wrong for a while. But ultimately I was right and Frank Vogel has been let go.
