    Yes, I have seen several episodes. It is a suitably gruesome period mystery, pitting a curious Pinkerton detective against the Borden sisters (mostly Lizzie), as there are a series of unexplained murders and deaths in Falls River. I recommend it, but not if you care about people in historical dramas resembling the real people they portray.

    • Tonight- Monday- on HBO is the premiere of Nick Broomfield's documentary 'Tales of the Grim Sleeper' about the Los Angeles Serial Killer (accused) Lonnie Franklin, Jr. Set your DVR, it should be a good one.

        • "Aquarius" series starts this month on American Tv

          I believe the series starting May 28th on NBC stars David Duchovny as Sam Hodak, a Los Angeles police detective in the late 1960s who pursues Charles Manson. It's unclear from the information on the website how much this will be about the Tate-LaBianca murders, but it has been a long time since the case has been dramatized. I lived in southern California at the time, and we saw the original news coverage every day for months. It was incredibly shocking at the time, especially to a young teenager.

          • If you watched Aquarius, what did you think? I have to say, I was disappointed.

            And, is it considered artsy to have crumby audio? I am almost 69 years old but I don't have any problem understanding 99% of other TV programs.
            This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

              Hello, SD. Yes, I have seen the two-hour opener, and just watched episode two last night via On Demand. I was a big "X-Files" fan back in the day, so David's participation interested me. But this character, Sam Hodak, is a far cry from Fox Mulder.
              He's cynical, stubborn, occasionally violent, but has a certain core value of justice and protectiveness.

              Overall, I enjoy this series. It creates the period well via costumes, background rock music, and the Southern California late Sixties scene. I also like the actor portraying Charlie. He is complex, able to veer between stony-faced sociopath, to absudly naive boyishness when he gets a chance to make a demo tape.

              I am turning 60 tomorrow, but have not noticed any problems with hearing the dialouge on the soundtrack, so I don't know what to tell you about that. It does help up the volume on your set a little bit. ( And yes, some of the actors mumble, but they are usually playing people high on drugs at the time.)

                I gave up on the series about half way through.

                • Looks like there's a new episode of the Manson inspired series Aquarius on NBC tonight. Not that I plan to watch it.
