I suppose this is the story of the beauty and brutality of a long-term marriage as seen through the eyes of a writer who aspires to make art, but makes his living writing popcorn movies. Someone who wants to be a good man, but finds himself contemplating many crimes. Someone who is guilty of the crime of being human. Someone whose life is the only movie he can't rewrite. Well, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

I saw this pilot last night on Showtime. I must say, it's refreshing to have another "real life" show back on. Eric Stoltz shines, as usual. His charm and creative acting brings life to the screen. He is real and true to his character. We feel for him. The actress that plays his wife is also wonderful. She brought reality to the "manic depressive" and takes it to the limit. I believe she wants help but just doesn't know where to start. All the characters were great! The acting was great and the storyline is very real. For people that live in the entertainment industry, knows that writing can be very stressful and puts a lot of unncessary pressure on you. But, again, I'm back to Eric Stoltz. He's brilliant as an actor and producer but even better as a Director. He carries this show and because of that, I think SHOWTIME has a hit on their hands yet again!
