What's with the dad? Is he really levitating or just thinking he is? What's with John, or is that for us to find out as the episodes progress. He has on 50 bucks in his pockets, and then the next scene he has 3200. And, he's a surfing genius? Good enough to tune in next week I think.
Well it was more interesting than the Sopranos finally...I'm down for some more episodes. I think it has the most potential out of all the new shows coming on HBO (obviously they think so too from the spot it was given)
I would say he is really levitating, since Butchy saw him do it in the police station. Of course, Butchy was pretty high at the time, so maybe they were both hallucinating? I thought the John character was pretty annoying, as well as the lotto winner guy. I'll probably check it out again.
It's pretty strange, I really have no clue where it's going, and don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing.
I saw the pilot back in October, and it's changed a lot since then. The strange gay guy who buys the hotel was a much bigger part, and there was actually less of John.
I'd really just like it if it focused on the Yosts. Anyone who knows about surfing, knows they are based on the Fletchers. Christian Fletcher, changed surfing, he was the first to bring over all the skateboard aerial moves. His dad founded a surf company called Astrodeck, that makes a type of grip tape for surfboards. And the kid in the show is actually played by Greyson Fletcher, Christian's son.
I have friends who live in San Clemente where the Fletchers live, and supposedly they are just like this, a complete mess. So they'll probably have a ton of source material to pull storylines from. As for the levitating and John, who knows if it will make it any good.
I thought it was ok, a little confusing. In Entertainment Weekly they reviewed the show and said that the levatating and the reason John is so strange will be explained more next week. So I will check it out again and then form more of an opinion.
I finally saw it, and I must say I liked it. Trying to really figure it out, but Im giving the writer the benefit of the doubt. I figure John is either an angel or an alien...not sure, but something supernatural.
I'm digging it, actually been looking forward to this show. For sure there is something supernatural going on, "John" keeps pulling out the EXACT amount of money that is needed at the moment...levitation, etc.
I do know that his name is NOT John and he's NOT from Cincinatti. My first thought was "J" from "C" means Jesus Christ....dunno.
I also read that the first couple of weeks don't give much but the show starts picking up after that (you're not in the dark and have a better idea of what's going on).
Ed Oniel's character is pretty good and he really is a great actor. I have no opinion on the show till I see another episode or two. I didnt think the writing was bad and the acting seems pretty good so far so I'm not sure what a previous poster was saying.
