Sneaky Pete (on Amazon)
« on: January 23, 2017, 08:21:33 AM »
Anybody else watch this?  I watched the entire season over the last several days.

Very good crime/con man story with an incredibly good cast (Giovanni Ribisi, Bryan Cranston, Marin Ireland, Peter Gerety, Margo Martindale, etc). 

This show was a hell of a lot of fun, with lots of twists and turns.  I give it my highest recommendation, and can't wait for season 2.

I started it and am loving it! Just a few episodes in and it's got me hooked. Glad to hear it plays out nicely. I was surprised it got renewed so damn quick but I suppose there's a reason for that.

My wife was out of town all week.  I would love to re-watch it just so she could see it. 

Can't believe CBS passed on this.

I just started watching and so far so good.  If you like Margo Martindale, check her out in the second season of Justified.  She won an Emmy for best supporting actress.

I really need to find time to watch this, maybe I'll be able to start it this weekend.

Can't believe CBS passed on this.

Evidently the original version of the show was a bit more of a procedural and less like the finished product. Cranston also wasn't appearing onscreen when CBS passed. Once they lost CBS he figured adding himself to the cast was going to give it a better shot of being picked up by someone else.

Watched the first 4 Episodes tonight. Really good thus far. The acting has been top notch and I'm impressed with the story so far. Typically by now I'd have a good idea of what was going to happen but I'm not sure at this point.

Hammered out another 4 episodes last night. This show is costing me sleep  :lol  I still don't have a clear idea of what the outcome is going to be and I live that!

just noticed that it's only (10) Episodes so I'll be able to knock this out tonight. Such a cool show and I can't stress enough how refreshing it is to have two episodes to go and still not have a good idea of how this is going to shake out. Not that I'm the worlds smartest man or anything, but I watch so many movies and so much television a lot of these shows and movies get pretty predictable. This one has been great at keeping the plot ever evolving to where you can't figure it out.

Add in the great ensemble cast and their performances and it's very entertaining.

Done! Very cool ending. It would appear they have an idea for the second season already given that ending.....i mean talk about getting thrown right back into the grinder.

I saw the title for this show, google, saw Bryan Cranston, and was naturally thinking 'Breaking Bad' and ...'Skinny Pete' :facepalm:

though, with the good words here, will watch in March

Any time I see a trailer for it - I think Giovanni Ribisi is Sherlock actor Andrew Scott for a moment.

Finally got around to finishing the first season this weekend. Really, really good. Nothing groundbreaking or innovative, just fantastically executed. Sign me up for season 2.

Anyone hear anything about a Season 2 premiere date?  This was definitely my favorite series of 2017.

I've been looking forward to this since I heard about earlier this year but haven't had a chance to get into it yet, I love Giovanni Ribisi!

Season 2 is on now. Got through the first three episodes last night and it seems like they didn’t miss a beat. Still the same feel....same tension and same creativity.

Ive now got (3) to go.....really neat story going on. I’d have to re-watch season 1 but it seems to me that this season has incorporated more ‘side’ storylines than season 1.....and it’s working well.

Good sophomore season. There was major character development and the story was interesting. Although one of the big ‘reveals’ at the end I had guessed very early on.

Finished season 2 and I also loved it! I did think season 1 was a little better but maybe because it was character introduction and all. I kind of picked up on the 'reveal' just wasn't sure how or when the details would arrive.

Much like Season 2 of Stranger Things.....season 2 of Sneaky Pete found itself competing with the first season because of how good the first season was. They're now obligated to make sure each season can 'live up' to the last one. BUT, I do think there was much more character development in this second season. I'd have to re-watch the first season to confirm but it felt like there were more 'side' stories that each cluster of characters was involved in this season than there was in the first one?

All in all it was good and worth the watch and it looks as if they are planning at least one more season given the way it ended.
