Poor Mr. Pamuk now must suffer the indignity of a detective series.

He's fucking hot!
|by Edith Crawley||reply 2||02/10/2013|
He's gorgeous, it can't be denied.
And the premise - an ambitious young cop. Where do they come up with these wonderful new ideas?

Theo James is incredibly hot. Is he gay? Who's his bf? How big is his cock?
|by Edith Crawley||reply 5||02/11/2013|
Also starring the very hot Kevin Alejandro from FIRST BLOOD and SOUTHLAND
And hot daddy Holt McAnally from CSI:MIAMI
Definitely going to have to check this one out - it better be worth watching, unlike that Steven Pasquale Jekyll & Hyde ripoff.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 6||02/11/2013|
I didn't find Mr. Pamuk the least bit attractive and couldn't understand what all the fuss was about. But, my lord, Theo James looks gawjus in that GOLDEN BOY promo.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 7||02/11/2013|
It's unfortunately also got Chi McBride who plays the stereotypical fat black cop. And it's unfortunately also got that blonde mediocrity whatsername from Cashmere Mafia who's a total Show Killer reaching Paula Marshall proportions.

CBS is premiering a procedural crime drama that mirrors every other show on their network? No kidding!
|by Edith Crawley||reply 9||02/11/2013|
It's about time we had another cop drama. We really don't see nearly enough of those.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 10||02/11/2013|
Originally, Ryan Philippe was supposed to be the lead, but turned it down.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 11||02/11/2013|
Because Ryan Phillippe is a lazy shit and didn't want to commit to the long hours involved in making an hour-long tv series.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 12||02/11/2013|
I let him ruin my virtue any day!
|by Edith Crawley||reply 13||02/11/2013|
Born Theodore Peter J. K. Taptiklis.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 14||02/11/2013|
Christ! That actor standing next to him, the chubby black guy.. I don't know his name but is this guy in EVERY failed fucking TV to exist the last decade?
This must be at least his 5th or 6th show in recent years. He must have an awesome agent because he's not a very good actor and every show he ends up on goes dead. He's the TV version of box office poison.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 15||02/11/2013|
Pamuk is so freaking hot.... yummy.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 16||02/11/2013|
|by Edith Crawley||reply 17||02/11/2013|
Damn, Theo James is fucking hot!
|by Edith Crawley||reply 18||02/11/2013|
He looks emaciated in some of those IMDB photos.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 20||02/11/2013|
One wonders if he will ever live Poor Mr Pamuk down.
Then again: to die as a guest in an English house! Ghastly.

Enough with the police procedurals. I hope this fails.

Has anyone actually watched the premiere at the link? Was it any good?
|by Edith Crawley||reply 25||02/23/2013|
I'm curious to see a few mins because they filmed in my parents' neighborhood and wanted to use their home, but no way in hell that was happening.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 26||02/23/2013|
oh smack I THOUGHT he looked familiar in the golden boy trailer :)

R28 = Johnny Lee Miller, speaking from experience
|by Edith Crawley||reply 29||02/23/2013|
I watched the first 10 minutes on that link. There are a lot of commercials. And in the first few minutes of the episode, the golden boy is on tv news and is going to hold a press conference and he gets a new job offer - in undercover narcotics.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 30||02/23/2013|
R30 He'd be better off in undercover vice, working to bust male prostitutes.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 31||02/23/2013|
He is exceptionally handsome
|by Edith Crawley||reply 32||02/23/2013|
I hope the actress who plays Mary in Downton Abbey guest stars as a Park Avenue madame.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 33||02/23/2013|
WOW - The WSJ's tv critic, Dororthy Rabinowitz gave it a big wet kiss of a review today; she usually hates everything.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 34||02/23/2013|
They're focusing way too much on Chi McBride in the promos. Who gives a fuck about Chi McBride? The promos should be all about Mr. Pamuk with his shirt off.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 35||02/23/2013|
Rub-a-dub-dub, I want in that tub!

I luvs me sum Mr Pamuk!
|by Edith Crawley||reply 38||02/23/2013|
Couldn't get into it. He's actually too handsome for this particular role. He'd be great in a soap. Ah, what a Steven Carrington he'd make. With Sebastian Stan playing his bf.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 39||02/28/2013|
I adore Chi McBride. I just do. He's actually the reason I decided to watch. McCallany and Alejandro are the cherries on top. I would (and do) watch all three in anything.
Blondie didn't register, not even a tiny bit.
The boy is a nonentity so far. He is cute, though. And I already hate the sister and that storyline.
James does show flickers of intelligence and canniness in his microexpressions, though, which is more than Ryan Phillippe can muster, IMO. He has potential. I expect not to like his character and his naked ambition very much, an idea which I quite like. Same way I hated Vic Mackey, but loved watching him work the angles.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 40||02/28/2013|
R6 Kevin Alejandro is emblematic of everything that's wrong with episodic TV. Three times now, he's played characters who met a tragic end because the actor left the show to move to another because there's no security that the first show will last past tomorrow night.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 41||02/28/2013|
I also find Kevin Alejandro to be very bland. Nothing special or distinctive.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 42||02/28/2013|
Are they shooting in NY?
If so, it would be nice if Ryan Phillippe had returned. He could have piggybacked this show with the return of Billy Douglas when OLTL starts airing on Hulu. (It's Hulu, isn't it?)
|by Edith Crawley||reply 43||02/28/2013|
Yes, R43, they shot the 13 episodes in NY.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 44||03/02/2013|
The show is absolute shit, but he's a beauty, including those gorgeous DSL.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 45||04/11/2013|
"Those gorgeous DSL," R45?

Mr. Pamuk makes me quiver under my bodice.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 48||04/11/2013|
|by Edith Crawley||reply 49||04/11/2013|
I like it. Theo James is growing on me, as is the Bonnie Somerville character.
McCallany needs more to do, but I like his star-fucking character, which he manages to make endearing instead of an asshole.
Love love love Chi McBride's character, Don Owens. His accent here reminds me of my awesome late uncles.
Alejandro is doing solid work with an unlikable character.
Definitely sticking with it, and hoping it survives.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 50||04/11/2013|
And BJEs, too.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 51||04/11/2013|
What kind of accent does Don Owens have, R50?
|by Edith Crawley||reply 52||04/11/2013|
Two things: Did a new episode air Tuesday night? I was very busy and not able to watch tv.
Am I the only one who sees romantic/sexual tension between Clark and Owens? I don't know if it is the characters or actors, but Clark and Owens always look like they want to kiss.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 53||04/12/2013|
1. Yes. And it was a good one. See link.
2. Yes. There is tension, but I find it inherent in the nature of their mentor/mentee, old/young, differences rather than sexual.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 54||04/12/2013|
It won't get picked up for another season but Theo could get a job on an already existing CBS hit.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 55||04/12/2013|
R55 Of course it won't come back. I like it.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 56||04/12/2013|
R52, both my uncles were born down South, but spent 40+ years in NY, specifically Roosevelt, LI.
I don't know if the accent has a name; I just know it when I hear it. Not a standard New Yawk or glottal stop-heavy Brooklynese, it's just ...different, I dunno. It's kind of melodious, and certain vowel sounds are twisted and lengthened--even a bit nasal, if that makes any sense.
Anyway, Det. Owens has that sound, and it's been nice hearing it again.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 57||04/12/2013|
I was completely unaware of this series until I saw this thread. I'd just like to state for the record that Holt McCallany can fuck my hole.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 58||04/12/2013|
R57 I sort of know what you mean. I grew up in North Jersey, and had no idea until I went to college that I had an accent (what a friend from Greenwich called my "Jersey Flats" accent).
Whenever I talk to my sister, oh, how I hear the accent. I've spent most of my life away from NJ/NY, and I don't think of myself as having one anymore.
However, I was trying to find something to listen to on the radio late last night, and at some point came upon a station where everyone talked like my sister (and Don?--I'll have to listen next week) and it all just sounded right to me. It was WOR radio, in NY or NJ, I don't remember which.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 59||04/12/2013|
Holt McCallany sounds like the name of a Colt Men or Titan Men porn star.

He looks like Perez Hilton with better hair and a spray tan.

You're insane, R62. He's gorgeous. Perez looks like Frankenberry
|by Edith Crawley||reply 63||04/14/2013|
I'm going to be on CBS as well -- watch for me, boys!
|by Edith Crawley||reply 64||04/14/2013|
R62, bite your tongue. Really hard so there's nothing left. And then get kitchen shears to cut out the stump that remains.
YOU MUST BE PEREZ HILTON, YOU'RE SO OFF-BASE.
That or you're blind.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 65||04/14/2013|
Please--It's "Poor Mr. Pamuk," not simply Mr. Pamuk.
I'd say a cut above the typical CBS procedural, which isn't saying much. What's up with that flat portrayal of the captain?
|by Edith Crawley||reply 66||04/14/2013|
Stephen Fry is doing a TV show for CBS? Really? I'm surprised that snobby old queen would lower himself to do American television.
I guess his buddy Laurie told him the money is too good to pass up and that he's not getting any younger. Rent boys ain't cheap.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 67||04/14/2013|
Rupert Grint is the title character - don't know what Fry is doing on it.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 68||04/14/2013|
It's on tonight. He's not Mr. Pamuk anymore. He's this hot detective, often seen in his subtrou.
Tonight's episode: Golden Boy - Sacrifice.
The unit investigates when the body of an aspiring young model is found in the bay; Clark looks bad when information is leaked to the reporter he has been seeing secretly.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 69||04/23/2013|
Nobody cares anymore, R69, but thanks for making the effort.
This show is toast.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 70||04/23/2013|
Absolute shit. Cliched. Awful.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 71||04/23/2013|
But it's CBS, R71. It's supposed to be all of those things. I like it anyway.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 72||04/24/2013|
I am NOT a rent boy!
|by Edith Crawley||reply 73||04/24/2013|
Poor Mr. Pamuk doesn't have a CBS series anymore. "Golden Boy" has been cancelled!
|by Edith Crawley||reply 74||05/12/2013|
He's cute, but the series was formulaic.
|by Edith Crawley||reply 75||05/12/2013|
Wierd that you all think he is that handsome. Do you all live under a bridge? He looks mildly retarded. Like he rides a short bus. And his expressions look like he is straining to take a shit.
