Okay, so there's a number of reasons I'm looking forward to this show. One, it's HBO, and in spite of [i:cd305cc3f0]Sex and the City [/i:cd305cc3f0]and [i:cd305cc3f0]Entourage[/i:cd305cc3f0], I'm pretty much their bitch. Two, it comes from David Milch. Not sure if you know about him, but he made this little show called Deadwood. It was rather amazing. Three, it sounds pretty damn awesome.

Kristin from EOnline says:

[quote:cd305cc3f0]Weird. Bonkers. Hilarious. Freakish. These are all words used to describe this show, the new spiritually minded drama on HBO from Deadwood producer David Milch, which, so far, is my number one pick for the best new series this summer. Austin Nichols stars as John, a seemingly average dude who shows up in a small surf town to politely inform everyone "the end is coming." And when people start walking on water and experiencing other everyday miracles, you'll start to realize that this guy John from Cincinnati has a lot in common with another "J.C."
Verdict: Hallelujah! It's a TV miracle! [/quote:cd305cc3f0]

Not sure why she calls Milch Deadwood [i:cd305cc3f0]producer[/i:cd305cc3f0]. Pretty sure he [i:cd305cc3f0]created[/i:cd305cc3f0] that masterpiece. :whistle:

June 10. Remember it.

I was actually just reading about this show earlier tonight and thought it sounds cool.

I haven't had a chance to check out Deadwood, but after hearing so much praise for it i am looking forward to seeing something of Milch's out from the start.

Here is a few cool looking promo's from YouTube:

From the [url=http://www.hbo.com/johnfromcincinnati/about/index.html]HBO[/url] website:
[quote:93ce3b5be1]Just north of the border, in a tired coastal town, live three generations of the Yosts, surfing royalty turned society misfits. The Yosts' reign and reputation, once defined in the curl of a perfect wave, have been eroded by years of bad luck, addiction and hubris. But just as things are looking like they can't get worse, a stranger named John arrives – and the Yosts' banal existence is lifted into something profound, miraculous and, possibly, universal.

Set in Imperial Beach, California, the last great surf-break before Tijuana, where the U.S. meets Mexico, and water meets land, John From Cincinnati tells the story of the Yosts, a family of surfers whose awesome athletic talents have seemed for generations to come with a curse attached. The gifts of 13-year-old Shaun rival those of Butchie, his addict-derelict father, and his now-ascetically-withdrawn grandfather Mitch, both of whom defined the sport in their heydays. In shaping Shaun's career, his grandmother Cissy strives to achieve a commercial and athletic success that will compensate for the frustrations and failures of her life with her husband and son.

Into this world, where even simple joy has been turned into a commodity, steps a mysterious stranger named John. Soon after, things begin to happen to the Yosts, and those whose lives they touch, that test the boundaries of past and present, the mundane and the miraculous, the natural world and what lies beyond it.

Created by David Milch (HBO's 'Deadwood'), and "surf-noir" novelist Kem Nunn, "John From Cincinnati" jumps the border between everyday reality and the humanity that exists beyond it.

'John From Cincinnati' stars Bruce Greenwood ('Déjà vu,' 'I, Robot), Rebecca De Mornay ('Lords of Dogtown,' 'The Hand That Rocks the Cradle'), Brian Van Holt ('House of Wax,' 'S.W.A.T.'), Austin Nichols ('Glory Road,' 'The Day After Tomorrow'), Ed O'Neill ("Married with Children,' 'The West Wing'), Luis Guzman ('Anger Management,' 'Boogie Nights'), Matt Winston ('Six Feet Under,' 'Teachers'), Greyson Fletcher (Acting debut), Willie Garson ('Sex and the City,' 'The TV Set'), Luke Perry ('Oz,' 'Beverly Hills, 90210'), Keala Kennelly (Acting debut), Jim Beaver ('Deadwood,' 'Adaptation'), Garret Dillahunt ('Deadwood,' 'The 4400'), Dayton Callie ('Deadwood,' 'CSI'), Emily Rose ('Hurricane Party'), Paul Ben Victor ('The Wire,' 'Entourage').[/quote:93ce3b5be1]
