    I love Judy Greer and all, but the premise of that show sounds REALLY bad. I mean, execution matters more than anything else, but still…

  2. Patchi says:

    I’m loving Cinemax line up. Strike Back and Banshee are awsome

  3. Nicole says:

    Who the hell is skipp sudduth?

    • shuayb says:

      He’s that guy who does Peter n Eli’s investigative and morally grey work… He’s also the one shown on the video leaving those votes. Fat guy boston accent… Ringing bells now?

  4. Paul says:

    Judy Greer was a great tv lead in Miss Guided, but that show was D.O.A. for some reason (not because it was bad). Whatever she does, I hope they find a way for her to work with Chris Parnell again.

  5. Cherry says:

    Nat Faxon was so terrible in Ben and Kate. Judy Greer deserves better.

    • Zach says:

      She does deserve better, but that is just because Judy Greer is friggin’ awesome. Faxon is no slouch though. Ben and Kate turned into crap after a few episodes, but the guy has been great in other stuff. And he is an Oscar winner.

  6. Mekisha Hale says:

    I remember hearing about this show appearing on Cinemax called Quarry the plot is quite interesting dealing with Vietnam which I think it takes place. That should be something I could be interested in.
    Cinemax is making some interesting shows on air with Hunted and Banshee and Strike Back.
