After last night's rant, I tried to chill out with a little TV. For that, I turned to AMC. I was hoping to find a smart, entertaining show that would allow my mind to peaceful drift into a different world. The show I turned to shares the name of a wine, that vintage after vintage, I continue to enjoy. One sip of Rubicon, the superior wine from Coppola's estates in California, always takes me to a happy place. Without a bottle of Rubicon on the shelf (in these tough times I've had to reduce my cellar inventory) my hope was that Rubicon the new AMC show could produce a similar pleasure.
The show states, not every conspiracies is theory; true I say. I'd add, not all conspiracies are entertaining either. Maybe I missed something, this was episode ten. With no background on the series, perhaps I dove in over my head. Then again perhaps not. I may have been asking too much from a show simply because it shares it's name with a great wine. Or maybe that is the conspiracy of the whole thing; a writer who's dreams were destroyed by Coppola, decided the best way to get revenge was to destroy Coppola's best wine by creating a disappointing show of the same name. That is Diabolical.
The show did have one highlight. A piece of dialog, that for me, will be a classic line, "what is the significance of 4:20." Maybe if I'd taken that thought to heart the show would have made a lot more sense.
