Painful
10 August 2015 | by timmyhollywoodSee all my reviews

People sit. They talk. I've given this show six episodes. I'm done. There are so many grievances, I just don't have the time to list them all. But for one, Vince Vaughn's acting is so one-note, so bad, his character seems superfluous. But he sits. And he talks. Occasionally in this six episodes, something happens, usually not until the tail end. I knew where it was going long ago, and yet so many long scenes, everything so endlessly grave, the maudlin musician in the background, cut to another sweeping helicopter shot, cut to Colin Farrell acting morose, or drinking a fifth of whiskey, doing an eight ball of cocaine, then having a lucid, sober conversation with his ex-wife. Then more sit downs, more wooden conversations, more weird music, more of Nic Pizzolato run amok. What the hell happened. This show takes itself so seriously, it breaks.
