Rubicon Is A Good Chew
18 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why the mania with fast-pace and superficial plot movers like a ticking clock in the lower right corner of a TV screen? Most people who write this show is slow must be under 30 yrs old -- if not eighteen years old. They simply do not have the perspective yet to appreciate what real intelligent thrillers are made of.

This program is the opposite of Chinese food, which is known for being expedient but leaves you still hungry. Rubicon is like a satisfying 5-course meal, where you relish each round as you get closer to the finale.

The show simmers, haunts and effectively accelerates with each episode. And good acting ensemble all the way around. The lead character Will, is low-key and portrayed by anti-actor James Badge Dale, not a fake Hollywood type like Tom Cruise that mugs for attention. A supporting character named Grant, who looks like Al Gore's distant cousin, fittingly annoys on cue. Music is a fine compliment to the intrigue.

Message to the attention-deficit bunch: put down your mobile devices and surrender to the mesmerizing and thrilling storytelling that Rubicon truly is, and rarely found on television anymore. //
