Anyone interested film noir of films produced now should check out a cable TV series called "Better Call Saul". It's shown on AMC and I think it's available January. Some of the same people that worked on Breaking Bad are working this one too. The protagonist is Jimmy McGill and he has an older lawyer brother that worked for a high level law firm but then had mental problem and now can't have anything electrical in his home. Visitors have to leave their cell phones in the mail box outside. There are lots of night scenes and in his brother's home during the day, soft light flickers through the window treatment. It is film noir, but it is shot in color. The cinematography is excellent.
A habit I wasn't really aware of came to my attention recently. When channel surfing, there are certain rerun programs that I can not go past. Sometimes I get stuck on a favorite show and I just can't help stopping to see it to the end. Several examples came to mind recently: JEREMIAH JOHNSON -- Run across it at any point, and, unless I'm already committed to something else then running, I stay with Jeremiah to the end. JUNO -- Never pass it up, no matter where I happen upon it. THE LECTOR CYCLE -- MANHUNTER, SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, RED DRAGON, HANNIBAL, even the prequel HANNIBAL RISING I just about always stay with any of these where I find them. The one exception is the NBC series HANNIBAL. I gave it three tries, and it never held my interest for an entire episode. I've noted that one of my sons can not pass up any DR. WHO program. Are there any viewers with favorites they react to in that way?
