The Black Donn-'eh'-llys

Black_lNBC’s been running trailers for its new spring drama, TheBlack Donnellys, and every time I watch, I feel confused. It’s aboutbrothers? And… they fight a lot, I think. There’s not much else I can figure out,except that I find the narrator a little annoying. The series was created bydirector Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco, the writers behind Crash, so dependingon how you feel about that movie, you’ll have different expectations for this show. There’s a pretty nifty interactive preview on NBC.com, but I’m still notinclined to watch the pilot next week (and when the entire episode is online already, why would I?). Are any of you PopWatchers going to check it out?

    Hey, it looks a lot like the Boondock Saints, which I loved…and, since it’s on after Heroes, I’ll probably stick around to check it out. Looks promising to me.

    I went to middle school with Jonathan Tucker, and he’s definitely a keeper (though I’m sad to see Studio 60 go, if it really is going…)

  • Todd

    Not interested. The previews I’ve seen have such a been there, done that kind of feel to me.

  • Stacey

    Nope. Don’t like they are taking Studio 60 off the air on a ‘hiatus” and not try another day and time. When it’s such a high profile show. So I don’t plan on attempting this new show, just because of a high profile director is involved. Given NBC has issues with ratings, they should have tried harder with Studio 60. I know most networks would have cancelled 60 by now. But I think they should have tried harder. So after Heroes, it’s another network for me. Plus, this is not my type of show

    The commercials remind me of “Daybreak,” and I didn’t watch that either. I don’t know how much of it was that I was annoyed by the commercials and how much was my disinterest in the subject matter, but the same applies to this show.

    Wouldn’t otherwise be interested, but if watching is what it’ll take to keep Studio 60 off the air, then I’m there.

    I can’t wait to see The Black Donnellys! I’ve seen the pilot and it’s the best new pilot I’ve seen in years. The cast and writing are amazing! Everyone should give this show a shot because it’s really good and deserves to be a huge hit. The Studio 60 fans need to stop whining that TBD “stole” the timeslot. People, if Studio 60 didn’t suck in both quality and ratings it would still be on the air. Don’t blame TBD for your show failing!

    That’s exactly what I thought: “it looks like Boondock Saints” which I really enjoyed, so why not give it a try?

    I’m more excited for this show than I’ve been for any other show in my LIFE. The more I see, the more excited I am. The show has everything I look for, it’s well done, funny, dark, and has an amazing cast. Words cannot say how much I already love this show, and it hasn’t even started airing yet.
    If people don’t watch this show, I’ll seriously cry. Because it’s that amazing.

    I won’t watch The Black Donnellys because I hated Crash and I am hoping Studio 60 will come back and rebound. I have seen the previews and also feel like I’ve seen it before.

  • Jeffrey

    No I won’t

  • Anonymous

    I don’t know if I believe the lead as a potential killer … looks like an eh in my book.

  • paige

    nope- i wasnt on the “Crash” bandwagon, so if thats what this is gonna be like then im not there. I’m only curious cause they filmed by my job and thatd be cool but i dont really care. I am glad that the studio has finally cut the cord holding onto Studio 60 and letting that annoying show flatline. DIE STUDIO 60 DIE!!!!

  • shiloh

    Any time a network subjects me to 4 extended commercials for an upcoming show over the course of less than 1 hour (as they did last night during Heroes), I get so annoyed and bored with the ad that I won’t watch the promoted show out of irritation. Nope, not gonna watch it.
