VINYL (2016)


Creators: Rich Cohen, Mick Jagger, Martin Scorsese

Cast: Bobby Cannavale, Paul Ben-Victor, P.J. Byrne

Richie Finestra (Bobby Cannavale) , an exec trying to sell his struggling company. Married to Devon (Olivia Wilde), Richie seems ready to get away from the catastrophe. His business is taking a dive so his is marriage. Using cocaine, drinking, women, and parties Richie is also trying to find the next big thing. But is he going to find it?

Now there is a great cast in their one big time Ray Romano , Max Casella, P.J. Byrne , and Juno Temple . Dam here we go. You get to be introduced to the characters and little by little young said to yourself damn! this was the 70’s and yes it is taking place in the 70’s but there is a twist later a few episode later Richie accepts help well you know from who after all it is a Scorsese series. At first you see Richie who love Devon and trying to do right by her but he is struggling for it, you begin to see who is really Richie.It is a monstrous paradox Vinyl and you will be as addicted after the two first episode. It is a wild ride and the costume and design of the 70’s here is dead on. Dam I remember those good old days. Party, muscle cars, and great women. Scorsese has done great  here recreating those time but unfortunately HBO has decided to pull the plug only 10 episodes and that is it. Have fun.
