International Bon Vivant and Raconteur


The first episode of K-Ville aired tonight. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either. They definitely need to tone down the characters a bit. Someone needs to tell Anthony Anderson that every line doesn't need to be shouted at the top of his lungs.

I did enjoy all the New Orleansana, though at times it felt like they were being heavy-handed. Indignantly yanking the FOR SALE sign off someone's 9th Ward property and tossing it away? Yeah, we get he doesn't want people to move away because it feels like they're turning their back on his home, but some subtlety and complexity would have been better than that kind of over the top cinematic shorthand. It just comes off as cheap and pandering.

Still, I think it's just okay enough to make it worth another look next week before I decide if it stays on my DVR list or goes.
