I watched John From Cincinnati and didn't much care for it. I hadn't watched it when it came out in 2007 but I noticed it on Amazon Prime, and still thinking I should watch some of the material in their included library, I put it on. I had hopes, it's been created by David Milch who created Deadwood and Hill Street Blues. I really liked Deadwood but haven't seen it since it was new. I had watched some of Hill Street Blues but never got to be a fan.
John From Cincinnati has 10 episodes about the life of a family of screwed up surfers. They're not a happy group to hang with and I got tired of the panic and anger. It's not weird enough to make the drama more interesting. I started speeding the show up as it got near the end. There's no continuation of the story, since the show got cancelled after one season, so there's no way to know where it was going or what we'd find when we got there.
There's a lot of good actors in the show, Ed O'Neill, Bruce Greenwood, Rebecca De Mornay, Luis Guzmán and Dayton Calle. I like Ed and Dayton's characters the best. They have some of the best scenes. Ed you should know from Married With Children and Dayton did a brilliant job playing Charlie Utter on Deadwood.
