Mr. Mercedes Season 1 Episode 2 Review – ‘On Your Mark’

17 August 2017 11:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the second episode of Mr. Mercedes

For those expecting concise characterisation, clear structure and narrative clarify with Mr. Mercedes be warned this takes a little longer than most. It plays out like an elongated episode of Jimmy McGovern’s Cracker without the chain-smoking, alcohol addled central protagonist. There are no failing marriages, awkward family dinners or extra-marital liaisons, instead we get a softer edged Gleeson as Bill Hodges who lacks cynicism but retains ample sarcasm. This is less the serial killer next door vibe from last week, choosing instead to unpack character, imply instability and give substance to an understated performance.

Elsewhere Harry Treadaway brings humanity to Brady Hartsfield in his techno basement lair, making everything deceptively clear-cut within two episodes. Kelly Lynch adds depth and pathos to her gutter trash depiction of a mother in awe of someone who makes her uncomfortable. Meaning that Mr. Mercedes »

Mr. Mercedes Season 1 Episode 1 Review

11 August 2017 1:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the first episode of Mr. Mercedes

Given the luxury of an hour to bed in David E Kelley’s adaptation of Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes takes its time. Introducing us to this world with a gruesome front and centre crime of indiscriminate motive and R rated lashings of claret. Never constrained by network censors this piece of thrilling detective ephemera goes in hard before flashing forward two years, where our protagonist is passed his best.

Slovenly, sloth like and reclined in his lazy boy Gleeson appears immediately comfortable. Portly, indifferent and sporting mammoth chin whiskers his retired detective connects with few people, shares confidants with less and considers companionship a burden. His day consists of sitting amongst a sea of unwashed dishes, empty beer cans and conspicuously avoiding things like personal hygiene. Within twenty minutes Bill Hodges is fully formed with hang ups, characteristic contradictions and »

Holland Taylor Has a Pretty Specific Reason Why She’s Unlikely to Join Girlfriend Sarah Paulson on Screen

3 August 2017 9:18 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Don’t expect to see real-life girlfriends Holland Taylor and Sarah Paulson on screen together any time soon.

Taylor, 74, told Entertainment Tonight that appearing with Paulson, 42, on Ryan Murphy‘s American Horror Story — or any show, for that matter — wasn’t up to her, but to the creator.

“It’s probably not a dream of Ryan Murphy’s to have us do something together,” she said, adding that it perhaps wouldn’t be a good idea to bring real life partnerships onto the show.

The Two and a Half Men actress did have praise for the show, especially for Paulson’s success. »

‘Mr. Mercedes’ Stars on Adapting Stephen King’s Novel: It’s About ‘Every One of Us’

26 July 2017 11:54 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When “Mr. Mercedes” — an adaptation of Stephen King‘s best-selling novel — premieres on the Audience Network, viewers can expect a much more grounded story than many of King’s other stories.

“I don’t think we have to go into the supernatural to find horror and terror,” the show’s star Brendan Gleeson said at the “Mr. Mercedes” premiere, held Tuesday night at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. “What it’s about is something that could be in every one of us.”

Harry Treadaway, who plays the villainous Brady Hartsfield, echoed Gleeson’s sentiment on the supernatural-less horror story.

“What’s more terrifying to me is what’s going on on your street and in your neighborhood,” Treadaway said. “It’s that sort of cul-de-sac, documentary horror that Stephen King is brilliant at doing. He finds the horror in the lies between people who think they are telling the truth, or »
