Pointless Nonsense

bloodlineJust when I was caught up on stuff and ready to make some progress in video games, Netflix goes and releases Bloodline, yet another original series. This one’s from the creators of Damages and starring Kyle Chandler, Linda Cardellini, and Sissy Spacek.

Which was basically all I knew about it going in, and it seems to be a super serious heavy family drama set in the Florida Keys. I thought that meant an obvious pass for me, but it seems that Kyle Chandler is the town Sheriff, discovers a crime at some point, and also his black sheep brother has some kind of shady history. So some things were happening, at least. But somewhat like Damages, they jump around a bit in the timeline, and that allowed them to tease some interesting stuff in the pilot, but it was always in the future. I think they were hoping that would make me want to see how things get to that point, but instead I felt disconnected from the excitement. So it’s looking like a video game weekend.
