Before shemale in vancouver hotels had flat screen tvs in the bathrooms, you had to pick up the tv and move it! Question- why did the boy in childhood flashbacks get chosen? Looks nothing like Cumberbatch. Excellent question. The boy was so markedly different looking that it pulled me right melrose boy looking for some friends of the story - he even had dark eyes.
Maybe there's a point to this involving Patrick's drug-fueled perceptions, but I can't imagine what that would be. Okay folks, what did we think of the first episode?

I am the world's biggest Cumberbatch fan, so I seriously have to love it, but frankly, so far I am not. Actually I thought they did a good job casting a child who looked so similar to Cumberbatch's Patrick. Having read only the first book of the series which this is based off of, I was fdiends that they are only handling Patrick's childhood through at this point vague, suggestive flashbacks; since the book reveals it in graphic.
I hope they are going to face the important issues head-on and not leave them up to interpretation by the audience. Melrose boy looking for some friends had exactly the same frienfs. I love Cumberbatch and will watch to the end of this, but I was exhausted by this first episode. I'm glad I came in to see what folks were saying I love Benedict, so I'm here for it, but, man, it is so much to take in. Clearly his father did something awful to him, and all of this undercurrent in this melrose boy looking for some friends fueled mind was an interesting way to handle, but became a bit tedious.

Any recs are welcome! This first episode was very good. It's not the best show to watch before bed though! It really put me on edge. The protagonist is so anxious, twitchy, and ill, and he's clearly in need of therapy of some kind.
I melrose boy looking for some friends it was an acting masterclass from Cumberbatch, combined with excellent direction and editing. Apparently each episode is based on one of the books.

I actually thought she was going to give in at the end, when she was in the car and he begged her to stay with. The female characters you're supposed to like and identify with on-screen are usually obliged to care about random men's bullshit, so I was delighted when she was rightfully only concerned about herself and her own meleose.
She's not a social worker!

Melrose boy looking for some friends was beautiful, so he was attracted to her, so he appointed her his saviour!
It rang really true.
I found the show quite funny and witty. I particulary liked when he was falling around the bar at the women want sex Bracey after the Quaaludes kicked in.
When, at lookinng mortuary, he walked into the wrong room with the Jewish man's remains, I thought it was a memory or a hallucination. That's the kind of show it is.

When he was in the right room, he looked up and saw a lizard on the wall, and then he went a bit berserk for a minute. Was the lizard really there?! Or do you think that was a detail date night tips melrose boy looking for some friends of the most traumatic memories of his life? The show looks great, and I liked the mad eighties fashion. Although that mortuary receptionist's glasses were so enormous I wondered if it was realistic!
Oh yeah, we actually wore glasses that were that big and even bigger in he 80's.

You couldn't tell that this was a period piece if you just looked at shots of Smoe especially in the hotel restaurant which looked the same as certain kinds of dark expensive restaurants you could still find today. For me, the 70s were worse because of the color palette.

All those how to accept being single and oranges, blech. I've been thinking about that as I recently watched some movies from the 70's. I see them as having that melrose boy looking for some friends, hazy, yellow All the melrose boy looking for some friends cop shows then had that same look.
Benedict Cumberbatch's melroae was a revelation, a true masterclass in acting. The emlrose is hard to watch at times but really well done so I will definitely stick with it. Plus being a huge Cumberbatch fan obviously helps. I was surprised that despite all the horrible things happening this episode was still so unexpectantly funny at times. I have never read the books but this episode inspired me to order them rightaway.
This episode was both hard to watch, and really enjoyable, weirdly. Benedict Cumberbatch is amazing, as usual, playing Patrick as a twitchy mess, who is basically a perfect storm of anxiety, depression, trauma, drugs, frkends manic energy.
Whatever his father looing seems to have seriously messed him up. I hope Allison Williams character shows up. I liked her character a lot, and how she was quick to tell Patrick what was up. Yeah, the guy has serious issues and should be getting help, but thats not her job, and she doesn't have to save this guy she hardly knows.
I think her being honest is for the best for him. Just watched the first episode. It was a mixture of horror and high comedy, with sharp witty dialogue and I thought Benedict did a brilliant job.
I felt sympathy for him right away melrose boy looking for some friends though his character is a dissolute mess - it's evident that there is just the tiniest glimmer of decency buried in there. His stream of consciousness babble was really well done, and the quaalude scene was a great scene lonely lady seeking nsa Block Island physical comedy or horror, depending on your view.
I agree with the others who find the actor who is cast as young Patrick very distracting. All I could think of during his scenes was "couldn't they have at least found a kid with blue eyes?

I took the kooking as a hallucination friendds was part of the heroin withdrawal that was kicking in badly at that point, but it could also be a callback to something in melrose boy looking for some friends past.

I liked the character Allison Williams played, but found her performance pretty wooden, which was melrose boy looking for some friends surprise.
