Don't make Raylan angry. You wouldn't like him when he's angry.
As I say every time award season comes around, I'm not a big fan of miniseries in general, unless the word Torchwood appears in the title or there are people shooting things. I blame my mom for monopolizing the sole TV in the house with Thorn Birds when I was younger. Anyway, I decided to watch Mildred Pierce because I liked the original Oscar-nominated movie and I enjoy Kate Winslet and the sadistic part of me wanted to see just how terrible Evan Rachel Wood was in it. While this mini is beautiful and carefully crafted, the first segment, and a large hunk of the second part, move really slowly. On the one hand, it really gives you a sense of her life and struggles, but I wanted to get to the good stuff, and that doesn't really kick in fully until the end of Part 2. But while this film has some ups and downs with its pacing, it is extremely well executed and something I'd highly recommend sitting through, even though it is nearly six hours.
If you woke up this morning wondering what you missed while you were watching Cartman get anally probed, today's the day for you, my friend. All that and more is in today's news, including a very special guest BSG rant from TwoP's very own Angel Cohn.
