Richard Madden’s long-delayed “Citadel” finally debuts

Enormously expensive, troubled production looks bland and forgettable

Another Russo Bros. production proving they’re nothing without prime Intellectual Property

Nearly 3 years, an unnecessarily massive budget (second only to Rings of Power), multiple reshoots, and a long list of rumored production issues for just 6 to 8 episodes of ... this? Wow.

Does Amazon Studios just have that one shitty hair colourist on their team or what? All the guys in their actions stuff have this uniform shoe polish-like black colour, even when a browner tone would have suited them better. Horrible dye job.

I hope this flops, I can't stand either Madden or Chopra.

I'll be watching.

I have enjoyed both of them at one time or another.

R2 Supposedly there is going to be local spinoffs of this main show. With Italian and Indian versions already in the works.

The Russo Bros.’ schtick is selling a ton of carts before horses - for example after Gray Man premiered to ghastly reviews (46% RT) they announced multiple spinoffs and sequels were already in development

The other problem with the Russo’s tv projects is that they’re not that impressive on the small screen

For example the Mission Impossible films are successful because they look thrilling on big screens

They’re sort if forgettable and fall apart on TV viewing

People still have small screens?

What’s quaint is R8 not realizing that despite the availability of screens 65 inches and up on the market, most people who watched “The Gray Man” probably watched it on a screen between 6 inches and 13 inches

Why does Priyanka only work with closeted guys? Even married one!!

There were shockingly many similarities in the preview to Madden’s Bodyguard series, they may have well just made a second season of that excellent show.

This looks like a real step down for Madden.

He looks hollow in the cheeks.

The woman looks like a fat cow.

I can't hear her. Is she mumbling or is it me?

La Belle Madden probably got a decent paycheck for this garbage although it kept him out of circulation for too long

It got renewed for a second season before the premiere already. They don't want people to think it's a guaranteed one-season flop and not tune in.

It looks quite generic and forgettable. Also, I don't understand why Hollywood wants Priyanka Chopra to happen so badly.

Will Richard Madden hook up with Priyanka Chopra’s husband, Nick Jonas? What about his GoT sister’s husband, Joe Jonas?

R16 in the midst of the peak streaming wars two-three years ago, shows from very high profile creators like the Russos got two season pickups guaranteed. I think that’s very unlikely in the climate now.

Accidentally posted this in the James Bond thread, but clearly plenty of people know about Richard
