  1. I’m literally watching UNSTOPPABLE again right now.

  2. Man, I just loved Perry Mason, despite the fact that I often don’t love these prestige HBO dramas and couldn’t even get through the first season of Boardwalk Empire. I was a but wary of the show for the first episode or two – I’m no prude but I thought the violence was a bit much – but I was completely hooked by the third episode. Loved the characters, the mystery, the count room drama (I’ve always had a soft spot for that) and the just slightly hyper-real, noir-like feel of the show. And, yeah, I really liked that it was a whole lot less cynical than it first appeared to be.

    But that cast, man, that cast! I could go on for days just about John Lithgow, who has had a hell of a late-period renaissance but I don’t think he has ever been this good.

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever disliked John Lithgow in a role, but I agree that lately it seems like he’s been surprisingly good in alot of the newer TV roles he’s been getting. For example I remember looking sideways at his casting as Churchill for The Crown, but I really enjoyed him on that show.
