Watch The Inside Tonight

Just a reminder that The Inside airs on Fox tonight. I wouldn't have to keep pushing this show on you if the executives at the network would just give it half the promotional support it deserves, but whatever. Just watch the show. I promise, you'll love it.

And if you're interested in reading a little backstory on how The Inside found its way to the small screen, read my piece here. It's a saga worthy of Altman.

Fully agree with your comments re: The Inside - I shall be in front of the set again, with my popcorn, at 9pm this evening.

This IS a great show. Before I read your post last week, I had already set up my TiVo because it seems to be getting a lot of ad time on FX. But you are right, if I hadn't been watching a NASCAR event (or perused your site), I wouldn't have known about it at all.

I saw it last week, and it was great -- but why did they have to show so much gore? Do they think people won't watch otherwise? I really liked the rest of the show but probably won't watch it again.

It's a good show. And I don't like much that's on TV other than occasional films.

Sarah - I think the gore probably comes from the show caving in to the norm from other shows. Even Law & Order has gotten gory -- early in the show you'd see a body with a sheet over it. But as shows like CSI and Crossing Jordan have caught on, even L & O has had to get more gross to keep up. I hate the gore too but I think people's threshold for viewing it is much higher. But considering how good the rest of the show is, it's a minor concession. Keep watching!
