Early reports about the series have dwelled on its graphic sex scenes. But the sex only underlines what "Tell Me" is really about. For most of each hour, the characters engage in an even more intense brand of explicitness: Their beyond-the-flesh struggle to preserve, or recover, some measure of intimacy with the partner each of them is committed to. Which is to say there's lots of talk going on, set against the relatably ordinary lives these people lead.
He touts it as HBO's most important show since The Sopranos. Hmmm, could it be so? Or do we have another variation of Californication. Ugh.
Anybody got some buzz on this, and whether it'll be available in Canada (by over the air legal methods I mean)?
