Film to be called "Box Office Poison".

The show had it's moments, but I really didn't think it was all that great.

I think that the show put too much stock in being "quirky" rather than being "funny".

I think all three seasons were great. I doubt it will go in theaters...

Watched a few episodes because I like Zach Galifianakis and it was on before Boardwalk Empire. Had a few funny moments, but wasn't good all around. Seems like they were trying to appeal too much to a New York City crowd.

the show lost steam during the last season but I still would have kept watching it. Ted Danson best role ever IMHO.

That's probably true. At least I enjoyed piecing together the scenery which translated into a weird amalgamation of Brooklyn that does not exist in reality. Still liked it even though I don't live in NYC anymore.

Didn't HBO say the same thing after canceling Deadwood?

They said they were going to wrap up the storylines with 2 movies, but apparently that's off now.  It actually wrapped up pretty well, all things considered.

You're only saying that because you drink too much white wine and smoke too much pot.

Pretty good interview with Timothy Olyphant on Nerdist podcast recently. They talk about Deadwood.

Danson makes that show.

I would gladly watch this. Twice. I loved the series and thought the three of them were great on screen together.

The show had a great premises -- someone being a private eye in Brooklyn for the fun of it -- but nothing was actually done with that. It just became completely dominated by the increasingly bizarre bromances between the main characters.

That show was insane & perfect.

This. And John In Cincinnati is to blame.

I nearly bored your mom to death.

I loved this show - Danson was amazing in his part. Funny and ridiculous and highly entertaining.
 
2013-01-23 09:52:38 PM  
I'd rather they made the movie with Hodgman and Platt doing the PI bit, they were the best parts of the show.

/Besides Ted Danson, of course

I agree. I think the casting of the main character was a bit off too.
