[ # ] Blunt Talk is crazy, just not crazy enough!
August 22nd, 2015 under Sir Patrick Stewart/Sir Ian McKellen, Starz!


When I heard that the lovable Sir Patrick Stewart was going to play an television anchor who is on the verge of losing it, I got excited for Blunt Talk that debuts at 9p on Starz tonight. Then I saw the first two episodes, and I was disappointed.
Walter Blunt is the anchor of a nightly news show and his ratings are declining. He’s afraid that they are going to fire him, so he is drinking more than usual. One night when he assistant Harry is sleeping in the backseat, he has too much to drink. He goes for a drive picks up a prostitute and gets caught by the police. But he doesn’t just get arrested, he causes an over the top scene that gets caught by cameras. Now everyone knows about the arrest and he needs to save his job.
Now that would be fun if they threw caution to the wind, but they didn’t. They hold back too much and what could’ve been a wild and crazy show, is just there. It’s like going out with your friends for a night you will never forget and having one glass of wine. Boring, right? This show is on Starz and it should the wildest show on TV, and not something that should be broadcast. Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll gets it right on FX, and this show gets it wrong. So if you have nothing else to watch tonight, then I say watch this. But sadly, you can skip it and you won’t be missing anything. Which is a shame because Sir Patrick Stewart deserves so much more than this.
