Trailer:

  • SPECIAL NOTES = Via Wikipedia:

In November 2014, CBS gave a production commitment to Sneaky Pete.[3] And a formal pilot for the show, shot in New York, in March.[4] In May, CBS decided to pass.

Later, it was reported the pilot might move to cable networks, with many expressing interest.[6] In June, it was reported that Amazon was in negotiations to pick up the show with some tweaking and possible minor re-shoots before being made available to the viewers.[7]

The pilot was released on Amazon on August 7, 2015 – and after viewer votes – was ordered to series on September 2015.[8] The latest news regarding the release of episode 2 and the rest of the series appears to indicate that Amazon will have shows available in January 2017. [9]


My Commentary:

So, I watched S01|E01 without knowing ANY of the information above. Didn’t watch a trailer. Didn’t Google. I went into this series completely blind.

And loved it.

I loved the premise, the actors, the writing, the whole nine.

And then?

Bryan CranstonWalter White, of Breaking Bad – appeared.

And then?

I almost died.
Legit.
Almost. Died.

And then, while reading the credits, I discovered David Shore AND Bryan Cranston wrote, produced, and directed this series.

STFU.

Shut. The. Fuck. Up.

And then, I finally ‘Googled’ to discovered the information above!

And then …. * head explodes *

And now???

I’m anxiously awaiting Amazon to release the whole season.

YES, PLEASE!

  2. I just finished watching this, based on your recommendation, and I am all in in, gingah!

    It would be fantastic if Jessie “Yo” Pinkman played Pete but you can’t have everything. The only thing that bums me out is that the full season isn’t going to be released intil Jan 13.

    Nice pick, Meleah!

  3. I don’t think my heart could handle Pinkman as Pete! LOL!!! So glad you like my review/recommendation!! SWEEP THE LEG, GINGAH!!
