I just started tuning into Femme Fatales recently and caught up with a few episodes on Max Go and what I can't understand is why I haven't heard anything about this show before. It's great. Quite frankly, I would've thought I would have heard Quentin Tarantino talking about how fun it is, but he's probably off making Django because this is the kind of pulp fiction I don't see on TV anymore and to call it TV is almost an insult. Each week is it's own little movie; different stories, different actors. Last week, Antonio Sabato plays a bank robber who gets mixed up with a girl who has his number. I guess given it's called Femme Fatales, I should have seen the twist coming, but I didn't and I thought the entire script was really smart and the acting was excellent. I've read some of the other posts on the site and am a little mystified. This show seems to capture the spirit of 30's pulp novels perfectly; overheated passions, gun-play and sharp dialogue, reminding me of the old movies I used to see on cable before they were replaced by bad reality shows (in fact, Femme Fatales takes a stab at reality series early this season which was probably my least favorite episode as it lacked the kind of pulp feel that the other shows I've watched have). There is some sex and it's definitely titillating, but I don't find it superfluous. In this week's episode, a girl seduces another woman in front of a fish tank to get her to help her with a caper and it looked amazing. I think all that helps set it off from if it were on AMC or another cable station, but there's certainly no more sex than Game of Thrones or Californication. This show really surprised me and you can count both me and my wife as big fans of this series.
