All I have to say is WOW! I watched the first episode last night. Its becoming more common for networks to release the first episode on demand and online a week early to create buzz before the premier. Since I have Starz on satellite instead of cable I elected to watch it online.
I realize this is a bold statement, but best first episode of any series I’ve ever seen, and that includes my other favorites The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, The Borgias, and even Band of Brothers(even though that was more because the first episode was far from the best).
For those that haven’t heard me talk about it on here before, Boss is about a corrupt and morally deprived mayor of Chicago by the name of Tom Kane played by Kelsey Grammer. The character is loosely based off of Mayor Dick Daley and shows a man that is willing to justify any means to get what he wants. There is also a back story about him getting diagnosed with a rare degenerative neurological disorder that is going to increasingly make daily living more difficult. The show is directed by Gus Van Sant and he has done an amazing job in the first episode.
Here is the IMBD link on the show: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1833285/
For those that want to see it. If you have Starz on demand you can watch the first episode anytime you want now. If you have Starz you can watch the premier at 10 pm(eastern) tomorrow on the network. If you don’t have Starz you can watch it on the Starz website you just need to enter your birthdate. http://www.starz.com/originals/Boss/ScreeningRoom#/episode-1
^^^^So you can watch it right there^^^^
I should also point out to those that don’t like seeing shows that have vulgar language and nudity, this show has both. In the first episode there are a lot of swear words and their is a brief sex scene with some nudity.
Here’s the trailer:
For those that are interested I hope you enjoy the show!
