    Finished watching The White Lotus last night. Enjoyed it a lot. Armond ( Resort manager ) is basically a drug-taking, alcoholic Basil Fawlty.

    Aiden Gillen is a poor actor. That Kin looks predictable as fuck. No doubt a huge audience will be hanging off it every Sunday night

    I haven't seen enough of his stuff to really judge him but I thought he stuck out like sore thumb in The Wire because he was so bad.

    Always though t I was alone in this - he has had some incredible roles and his IMDB reads all of the great shows.

    Typical RTE take a concept and destroy it with their casting.

    Trying too hard to be slicker. Bigger budget I'm assuming. The background (incidental music) is beyond bad. I'm defo picking on it but there's something about glorifying Irish gangster life I can never take to. As I watch The Sopranos for the 8th time :D

    I agree Aiden Gillen seems to play the one role in everything, no range as they say.

    I have been a fan of Curb your Enthusiasm since it began but only recently watched it all in one go in advance of the new series.

    For those of you who haven't seen this comedy, lucky you. Do yourself a favour, it is simply superb.

    Larry David is a comedy genius.

    As a fan of the show I can understand why some people would hate it. And if I am honest I would concede that there are a good few episodes that aren't great. But when it hits the mark, it is one of the funniest shows I've ever seen. :D:D
