John From Cincinnati – Why am I still watching ?!??!

JohnFromCincinnatiThis is probably the strangest show that I have ever watched. I completely have no idea what is going on most of the time, but for some reason I have to keep watching. I think it’s because I want to understand what’s going on. But it became overly apparent after the first 3 shows that this was never going to happen. There are things that seem to make sense on a very shallow level, but the big picture just can’t be built in your mind. It’s like having a few jigsaw puzzle pieces from 200 different jigsaw puzzles of the same picture but each from a different angle.  You basically have pieces that you believe should go together, but it’s just isn’t the case. If anyone really understands this show, please let me know, cause I am completely lost but yet I can’t wait for next season.

 The series is made by the same guy who did Deadwood, and it didn’t surprise me at all when I discovered that because the dialog is similar in many ways. The characters will do mini monologues from time to time and you basically have to rewind and watch them 3-4 times to kind of really get any idea of what they are saying. (if you are lucky)

 Why can’t I stop watching ??
