|Aquarius NBC starring David Duchovny|
All of us who were momentary excited about LA in the 1970s on Mad Men can now redirect our attention to Aquarius, which will feature LA in the late 1960s. Aquarius Stars David Duchovny as Sam Hodiak, a LAPD homicide detective from the previous generation, who is investigating a missing girl. The story is tied in with the Manson family ( or the Manson Brothers, as Meredith on Mad Men calls them). It's retro and serial killer...I think a network exec just died and went to heaven. Even if it is riding a decidedly petering out wave of TV genre and based on nothing but the trailer I'm gonna say this looks like a winner.
I also like that it is on network TV so it can't go to that gratuitous sexual, violent, sometimes both at the same time, place that cable often feels the need to.
2 hour series premieres Thursday May 28 on NBC and already has a straight to series order for 13 episodes.
Here is the network description and trailer. ENJOY!
