Poor Mr. Pamuk has a CBS series


by Edith Crawleyreply 7605/12/2013

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

by Edith Crawleyreply 102/10/2013

He's fucking hot!

by Edith Crawleyreply 202/10/2013

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?

by Edith Crawleyreply 302/10/2013


by Edith Crawleyreply 402/10/2013

Theo James is incredibly hot. Is he gay? Who's his bf? How big is his cock?

by Edith Crawleyreply 502/10/2013

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 Crawleyreply 602/10/2013

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 Crawleyreply 702/10/2013

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.

by Edith Crawleyreply 802/10/2013

CBS is premiering a procedural crime drama that mirrors every other show on their network? No kidding!

by Edith Crawleyreply 902/10/2013

It's about time we had another cop drama. We really don't see nearly enough of those.

by Edith Crawleyreply 1002/10/2013

Originally, Ryan Philippe was supposed to be the lead, but turned it down.

by Edith Crawleyreply 1102/10/2013

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 Crawleyreply 1202/10/2013

I let him ruin my virtue any day!

by Edith Crawleyreply 1302/11/2013

Born Theodore Peter J. K. Taptiklis.

by Edith Crawleyreply 1402/11/2013

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 Crawleyreply 1502/11/2013

Pamuk is so freaking hot.... yummy.

by Edith Crawleyreply 1602/11/2013


by Edith Crawleyreply 1702/11/2013

Damn, Theo James is fucking hot!

by Edith Crawleyreply 1802/11/2013

who is pamuk?

by Edith Crawleyreply 1902/11/2013

He looks emaciated in some of those IMDB photos.

by Edith Crawleyreply 2002/11/2013

One wonders if he will ever live Poor Mr Pamuk down.

Then again: to die as a guest in an English house! Ghastly.

by Edith Crawleyreply 2102/11/2013

[quote] who is pamuk

The flyover frauen have clocked in.

by Edith Crawleyreply 2202/11/2013

Can't wait.

by Edith Crawleyreply 2302/23/2013

Enough with the police procedurals. I hope this fails.

by Edith Crawleyreply 2402/23/2013

Has anyone actually watched the premiere at the link? Was it any good?

by Edith Crawleyreply 2502/23/2013

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 Crawleyreply 2602/23/2013

oh smack I THOUGHT he looked familiar in the golden boy trailer :)

by Edith Crawleyreply 2702/23/2013

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

And make mre money in one season than he'd make in his whole career in the UK

by Edith Crawleyreply 2802/23/2013

R28 = Johnny Lee Miller, speaking from experience

by Edith Crawleyreply 2902/23/2013

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 Crawleyreply 3002/23/2013

R30 He'd be better off in undercover vice, working to bust male prostitutes.

by Edith Crawleyreply 3102/23/2013

He is exceptionally handsome

by Edith Crawleyreply 3202/23/2013

I hope the actress who plays Mary in Downton Abbey guest stars as a Park Avenue madame.

by Edith Crawleyreply 3302/23/2013

WOW - The WSJ's tv critic, Dororthy Rabinowitz gave it a big wet kiss of a review today; she usually hates everything.

by Edith Crawleyreply 3402/23/2013

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 Crawleyreply 3502/23/2013

Rub-a-dub-dub, I want in that tub!

by Edith Crawleyreply 3602/23/2013

need to see his no no hole

by Edith Crawleyreply 3702/23/2013


I luvs me sum Mr Pamuk!

by Edith Crawleyreply 3802/23/2013

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 Crawleyreply 3902/27/2013

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 Crawleyreply 4002/28/2013

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 Crawleyreply 4102/28/2013

I also find Kevin Alejandro to be very bland. Nothing special or distinctive.

by Edith Crawleyreply 4202/28/2013

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 Crawleyreply 4302/28/2013

Yes, R43, they shot the 13 episodes in NY.

by Edith Crawleyreply 4403/02/2013

The show is absolute shit, but he's a beauty, including those gorgeous DSL.

by Edith Crawleyreply 4504/11/2013

"Those gorgeous DSL," R45?

by Edith Crawleyreply 4604/11/2013

too skinny

by Edith Crawleyreply 4704/11/2013

Mr. Pamuk makes me quiver under my bodice.

by Edith Crawleyreply 4804/11/2013

Dick-sucking lips,R46

by Edith Crawleyreply 4904/11/2013

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 Crawleyreply 5004/11/2013

Ohhhhhhhhh...thanks R46.

And BJEs, too.

by Edith Crawleyreply 5104/11/2013

What kind of accent does Don Owens have, R50?

by Edith Crawleyreply 5204/11/2013

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 Crawleyreply 5304/12/2013


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 Crawleyreply 5404/12/2013

It won't get picked up for another season but Theo could get a job on an already existing CBS hit.

by Edith Crawleyreply 5504/12/2013

R55 Of course it won't come back. I like it.

by Edith Crawleyreply 5604/12/2013

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 Crawleyreply 5704/12/2013

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 Crawleyreply 5804/12/2013

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 Crawleyreply 5904/12/2013

Holt McCallany sounds like the name of a Colt Men or Titan Men porn star.

by Edith Crawleyreply 6004/12/2013

Have those lips ever been around a cock?

by Edith Crawleyreply 6104/14/2013

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

by Edith Crawleyreply 6204/14/2013

You're insane, R62. He's gorgeous. Perez looks like Frankenberry

by Edith Crawleyreply 6304/14/2013

I'm going to be on CBS as well -- watch for me, boys!

by Edith Crawleyreply 6404/14/2013

R62, bite your tongue. Really hard so there's nothing left. And then get kitchen shears to cut out the stump that remains.


That or you're blind.

by Edith Crawleyreply 6504/14/2013

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 Crawleyreply 6604/14/2013

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 Crawleyreply 6704/14/2013

Rupert Grint is the title character - don't know what Fry is doing on it.

by Edith Crawleyreply 6804/14/2013

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 Crawleyreply 6904/23/2013

Nobody cares anymore, R69, but thanks for making the effort.

This show is toast.

by Edith Crawleyreply 7004/23/2013

Absolute shit. Cliched. Awful.

by Edith Crawleyreply 7104/23/2013

But it's CBS, R71. It's supposed to be all of those things. I like it anyway.

by Edith Crawleyreply 7204/24/2013

I am NOT a rent boy!

by Edith Crawleyreply 7304/24/2013

Poor Mr. Pamuk doesn't have a CBS series anymore. "Golden Boy" has been cancelled!

by Edith Crawleyreply 7405/12/2013

He's cute, but the series was formulaic.

by Edith Crawleyreply 7505/12/2013

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.
