Outstanding new series
19 June 2007 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The first episode was great, the second brilliant. If you are a fan of HBO series, then I would say this is a mix of Carnivale and Deadwood. When I heard that David Milch had a new series coming out on HBO I was able to curb my mourning for Deadwood! As in Deadwood, the cast is composed almost entirely of brilliant character actors (with two former TV stars, Luke Perry and Ed O'Neill). The writing is top-notch and it is set in Southern California in a surfing town near the Mexican border.

Honestly I always liked the sopranos, but always believed that Deadwood was a superior series. Well JFC is striking me as better than Deadwood....what does that say for it?

***After seeing a few more episodes I feel that JFC lost it's way but the last few have looked better***

Also regarding the question from one poster, the opening song is Johnny Appleseed by the (sorely missed) Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros.
