Under $6 is a friggin' steal. I've always been a fan of the back-and-forth of Matalin/Carville . There's a nice pre-Mad Men role for John Slattery. But the "mystery man" Roger Guenveur Smith is the one that caught my attention, (leading me then to his performance "Huey P. Newton Story") and I wish he could work with Soderbergh again or play this same type of role. May be a by-product of his character/storyline though, as you (and the other characters) what to know more about him.King Prendergast wrote:You won't be disappointed, K Street is some of the best stuff SS has done in my opinion.I blind bought a copy and thought others might want a heads-up
I'd be interested in reading what you think of this, Domino, as your tastes for Soderbergh's work run pretty similar to mine. I think this was an interesting experiment for Soderbergh and Clooney. They were running and gunning, putting these episodes together the week before they aired in order to feel current and topical. In one episode, Carville is advising Howard Dean and suggests a line that Dean then used at the following week's Democratic Debate. Mixing the real-life DC people with the actors didn't seem that gimmicky. The series even managed to have some mysterious/paranoia elements towards the end of its run that made me wonder what a second season would've been like. I think his work on this series really inspired his approach to the HDNet films and is as close as we're likely to get a "Soderbergh TV Show" ever again, as he turned "Unscripted" totally over to Clooney/Heslov.
