The Philanthropist Premiere

Anyone else watch it?

I wanted to check it out, then saw Tom Fontana was a producer.


And the ep was pretty decent. I’ll watch it again, definitely.

I enjoyed it. I liked the storytelling aspect of the first episode, but I don’t see that continuing after the first one. I sure hope it does.

I liked, but Teddy needs to keep picking up hookers or something likewise sleazy to balance off the tyke-hugging,vaccine smuggling do-goodery. Otherwise it’ll be like watching a documentary on Prince Charles, albeit with better hair and ears.

Ah, I don’t know. I wasn’t bowled over. I found myself thinking several times during it “this isn’t that good.” I might watch it once more to see if it’s any better, but I don’t have high hopes.


I only caught the last 10 minutes of it, but I was impressed with the look of it. It looked watchable, I’ve got it set to record on my dvr, we’ll see. Almost everything else is in reruns, so it’s got that going for it anyway.
