ok, the "coming soon" bit tells me that they still don't have a date. Back in spring FX said they had finished production on most of the eps but had to stop production before the last couple could be finished, and they said that they wouldn't announce a date until they could resume production (and no one's resuming productions on anything for the foreseeable future).
Well they still haven't announced a date so I wouldn't be holding my breath.
Looks good though. Chris Rock going to be the MVP clearly.
The team for the FX series is currently in heavy pre-production at Cinespace and will resume filming on August 24th. Eight out of the season's ten episodes had been completed when production was halted in March.
This round of filming to complete its fourth season is expected to run for two weeks.
As for the new teaser trailer - Glynn Turman with the first line!!! Can't wait.
Reviews coming out. (Critics got 9 out of the 11 eps)
Mostly positive so far, a couple mixed and two negative (Entertainment Weekly, Paste), and nearly all agree the cast is great, with a lot of standout praise for Glynn Turman, Jessie Buckley, Ben Wishaw....
I really loved the first half of Episode 1, but it started to come undone by the time Jessie Buckley showed up. Not because of her, mind you, she's amazing as always, but the first half had a terrific gravitas to it that almost felt Coppola-esque, something that didn't feel like anything we'd seen before. But then the kookiness began, and I felt like there were smarter, tighter ways to set the dominoes up. Chris Rock's a fine fit for the world, though.
Also, I was hoping that when Rock and the Italians swapped sons, Ben Whishaw would get traded a third time.
Agree with stephen - interesting and catchy beginning, like Fargo meets Boardwalk Empire, but loses itself a bit. They keep adding more and more (and more) characters and after two episodes, they're still setting the spread, and we haven't really spent inside time with any of them. Wishaw's Rabbi is the most interesting character so far. Some of the perfs feel a little amateur or too unlikely (the funeral home father, the "intimidating" brother from Italy, the jailbirds), some are kinda compelling like Buckley whose physicality seems sped up, and Glynn Turman of course.
