...AND I'LL WRITE YOU A TRAGEDY:
The new Sunday primetime slot on HBO, after a rather disappointing summer schedule, is headlined by David Simon's (Homicide, The Wire) newest show, well, miniseries, which has an incredibly dry (and political) premise but is engagingly written, brilliantly acted (just give Oscar Isaac the Emmy now), and well executed (Paul Haggis of Crash fame directing). First two episodes aired tonight; highly impressed. If you've seen the first two episodes tonight, here's the Inside the Series bit.
