Karry Best movie of this year hands down!
Dotbankey A lot of fun.
Chirphymium It's entirely possible that sending the audience out feeling lousy was intentional
Zandra The movie turns out to be a little better than the average. Starting from a romantic formula often seen in the cinema, it ends in the most predictable (and somewhat bland) way.
Leftbanker I think it's useful to compare Get Shorty with another current series, Animal Kingdom. All of the things wrong with Animal Kingdom (AK) they get right on Get Shorty (GS). The first problem with AK is casting. The cast is a nightmare of extremely bad choices whereas GS gets everyone just right.What truly sets GS apart from most of the bad stuff on TV is that they get all of the peripheral characters right, as well as the protagonists. Every single character in the show is fun to watch, from Miles's sidekick, Lulu, to Amara's half-witted and nihilistically violent nephew, Yago.Almost every character is a scene stealer. Ray Romano almost walks away with the whole series, except he has a lot of competition. I think that the story line in each of these two series is about the same quality, the thing that separates AK and GS (besides the casting) is the humor thrown in at necessary intervals in GS. I like every single character on the show, even the ones I hate. Take Amara's accountant as an example. He is on screen for a couple of minutes, tops, yet he establishing a very solid presence. This comes down to great casting, good acting, and decent writing.
megagain Don't be confused. You cannot see this series w/o paying +/-$3 per episode, even subscribing to Amazon Prime. Yes, good show. But you'll have to pay.
taqmobile Huge fan of the movie and love the reboot of the idea for the show. When I heard Chris O'Dowd was the main guy I already knew it would be great. I can't think of a better guy for this role... and the rest of the cast is great. Ray Romano is perfect.I was so happy to hear this got a second season.. hopefully has many more!
shoguncrosse Don't Compare to Film or Other Series Like It...This is really nothing like the film (besides its plot, but consider it a standalone take with the same name and not a remake series) or other shows like it such as say, Breaking Bad, or Fargo...Id say its really like a mix of both. Great dry humor and great acting. Im not sure why the rating and some reviews are relatively low and bad...Consider this a complete standalone and im sure you'll enjoy. Funny, witty, humorous yet dark...Loving it so far.
