A supernaturally slanted, superbly photographed good-versus-evil series set during the 1930s, focusing on a young man with mysterious talents who is picked up by a carnival crossing the Dust Bowl. At the same time, a California preacher predicts doom while battling his own demons. The pace is deliberate, but the drama presents an unusually evocative rendering of the hope and despair of the Great Depression.
Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in the present day, a group of disparate teen girls, find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin their parents committed two decades ago.
The HBO series Tell Me You Love Me was the premiere "water cooler" show of the 2007-2008 season; love it or hate, people simply couldn't stop talking about it. Filmed in cinema-verite fashion, this was the saga of three couples, ranging in age from the 20s to the 40s, who shared the same sex therapist. Eldest couple Dave (Tim McKay) and Katie (Ally Walker) were married with children, but hadn't had sex in over a year. Thirtysomethings Carolyn (Sonya Walger) and Palek (Adam Scott) desperately wanted a baby, but Palek didn't like being pressured into sex at his wife's command. And though youngest couple Jamie (Michelle Borth) and Hugo (Luke Farrell Kirby) couldn't keep their hands off each other, not even in public, Jamie worried that Hugo would end up being unfaithful. While therapist May Foster (Jane Alexander) was able to help her patients with the most delicate and potentially embarrassing of issues, she herself occasionally had problems with her significant other Arthur (David Selby). The series was verbally and visually explicit even by HBO standards, with one scene of simulated oral sex between sixtyish actors Jane Alexander and David Selby all but setting the screen ablaze. Tell Me You Love Me debuted September 9, 2007.
