How To Make It In America

The only good things to come out of Comcast fucking up my HD conversion was that they gave me HBO free for three months. The best thing about HBO? How to Make It In America.

We’re only three episodes in, but this show is solid. The pilot was the best I’ve seen it years. The show captures the energy of New York City and the characters’ struggle to be successful on their own terms. There’s definitely a live-in-the-moment vibe of NYC that is accurately reflected by writing and pace. I expect good things going forward. My only concern is that it could turn into the east coast Entourage where the show is more concerned about name-dropping, filming at famous locations and being hip, than focusing on the story and the characters we like. And guess what? Same producers. Enjoy the show now while you can.
