Hip, cool, breezy, sleazy, strange and mysterious take on a dysfunctional California surfing family.
10 July 2007 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

HBO's new drama series "John From Cincinnati", is certainly somewhat strange, mysterious, and somewhat hard to catch on to you really wonder just which way the next wave will roll. Yet the stress and miracles and problems of this California surfing family just pulls you as a viewer in and you feel like your part of the clan. It's set in a California beach coast town that borders Mexico and you have the Yost family and the family harbors three generations of surfers. First the legendary Mitch(Bruce Greenwood) then next his drug addicted son Butchie(Brian Van Holt) and then finally the new prodigy that's Butchie's son and Mitch's grandson Shaun(Greyson Fletcher). During it all the boys are held together by Mitch's strong and tough wife Cissy(Rebecca DeMornay) who's always on the lookout and very protective of Shaun, and quick to scold son Butchie as she urges him to change his ways. When a stranger enters by the name of John(Austin Nichols) a guy from Cincinnati strange things start to happen from medical miracles to floating above the ground like in air without standing on the ground! Also Luke Perry is pushing as a sneaking surf promoter who always tries to push his influence on the family. One good bright note away from this dark underworld is family friend Bill a bird talking and pro wrestling watching lover who' a great family friend, and I must say great job of acting from Ed O' Neill he's come a long way nice work he's doing in such a serious drama. David Milch really has the audiences thinking and feeling the pain of this family as one watching you just don't know what's going happen at sea. More and more has to be revealed about this messed up and conflicted family much should be discovered at the bottom of the sea. A good new series that's plenty interesting and mysterious that will have you as the viewer wondering and feeling the power of the strange forces of nature and miracles. Really it's nice to see good work again from veterans like DeMornay and O' Neill too. Really a pretty good pick up for HBO.
