Don't want to derail the thread before it starts but I'm really tired of the blue filters. Can we just have natural color tones again?

Otherwise - it looks really interesting. I love an LA private eye story.

Cinematography does look promising.

I prefer blue to orange-sepia. But this trailer doesn't have many blue filtered scenes, to my eyes.

[quote]I love an LA private eye story.

It seems it will be something more than that:

"I cannot tell you what Sugar is really about. What I can tell you is that it begins as a contemporary hard-boiled detective drama.

But it takes until the end of the sixth episode (out of eight total for the first season) to reveal what his secrets are, and what the real story of Sugar is."

Colin looks great.

I love the Colin gets respect now, for his work. He was such a bad boy for all those years:drugs, sex tapes, partying, I mean the guy fucked Britney Spears. He writes poetry and speaks beautifully, so I bet he has a book or two in him, like Michael Caine who is an excellent writer. If Colin were to do it truthfully, and he strikes me as someone who would try to be honest, Colin's autobiography would be a sensation. I have always been fond of him. His TV interviews are a joy to watch. He is so smart!

It's an odd show. The character of Johnny Sugar is superhuman in his perfection--he speaks multiple languages fluently, has exquisite expensive tastes (which he can somehow afford to indulge on a PI's salary), can drink any amount of alcohol without getting drunk thanks to a genetic mutation, and has such perfect reflexes he can literally catch a fly in mid-air just with chopsticks. There's something up with all that we'll learn eventually.

This thread has talked almost entirely about what Farrell now looks like, but the show itself is quite interesting. I like that although torture and murder have been implied we've yet to actually have to see that much of it.

I'm also curious about the central mystery as to what Sugar, Ruby, and the other people who gathered in Ruby's house actually are. They could be super-spies bred by world governments, or they could be visitors from Somewhere Else (a different planet, dimension, or timeline). They have an overall mission they're not allowed o ignore, but Farrell's Sugar and some of the others seem to have side careers (in Sugar's case, as a finder of lost people0 that gives them meaning and direction in life. I'm also curious whether Sugar's obsession with film noir and old movies in general has anything to do with his difficulty dreaming he's mentioned a few times--as if the old movies take the place of dreaming for him.

I enjoyed the first four episodes a lot. At first, I was more intrigued by the camerawork (which calms down substantially later on) but now I'm hooked on the story as well. I nearly came when the camera almost bumped into Kirby Howell-Baptiste's face and cast a shadow on her, breaking the fourth wall for a split second. I'll be keeping an eye on Fernando Meirelles going forward, for sure.

[quote]Well the series has many color tones and in fact it also has intermittent B&W scenes. It's very stylized, but I'm finding it unpretentious.

Just out of curiosity, how quickly did you guys pick up on the fact that the show splices in bits from old black-and-white movies in-between scenes? I missed it for the first two and feel stupid for it, particularly since they've also change the main show's aspect ratio to match whatever film's being shown (e.g. 2:1, which was also the ratio for CRT televisions).

[quote]Is Sugar gay? Is that the past he doesn't want known?

It's 2024. It was weird enough a decade ago when HBO made Taylor Kitsch's "True Detective" character a closet-case, but nowadays is a nonstarter given all the stupid political bullshit going on. (Also, Colin's LONG been a straight ally, given that his brother is gay IRL.) Sugar also interviewed a married lesbian couple and seemed entirely nonplussed by it, so him being gay doesn't really track. Not counting coming-of-age stories, e.g. "Heartstopper" and "Love, Simon," or ones involving secretly gay politicians, I can't even remember the last time I saw a fully closeted character either on TV or in film.

[quote]And what does he inject himself with?

While I'm unclear if this is part of the underlying mystery, my initial assumption was that he was shooting up heroin – except we only saw him do it the one time, so I don't think the secret is that he's a junkie. Given that a few other shows have employed a similar storytelling deceit of sorts, it's also possible that he's injecting himself with some sort of memory-blocking agent, or whatever he needs to keep his still-unexplained neurological issues under control. (It's also possible he was just injecting himself with a benzo due to a panic attack.) Considering he was in Japan when the show started, is it possible he's trying to block out the memory of something that happened previously in L.A., given that his return there triggered recall of it? (Related, but yes, "Total Recall" was one of the early "unreliable narrator" movies to catch on.)

Let's unpack this a bit. First, being a polyglot isn't THAT unusual, and definitely not superhuman. One of the first guys I ever dated was a doctoral student in linguistics who couldn't "merely" speak five languages; he could speak four of them with region-specific accents! (German as spoken in Germany differs a fair amount of Swiss-style German.) My sister-in-law also speaks three languages fluently. While I have zero aptitude for foreign languages, some people easily pick them up.

Sugar clearly has vast sums of money at his disposal, but we aren't given any specifics. While living at a five-star hotel may be the most L.A. thing ever, it doesn't come cheap: think $250K/year on the low end, but Sugar apparently keeps his room at the Hotel del Corazon 365 days a year. Yes, that's definitely absurd for a "mere" PI – except I think it's clear by now that Sugar is decidedly *not* that. As a reminder, the first episode had him rescuing the son of a Tokyo Yakuza head. To state the obvious, organized crime and massively rich Hollywood directors / producers can (and will) pay top dollar to get the job done right, and considering the level of risk in getting tangled up with a group that powerful, I think we can assume Sugar's paid *extremely* well for his services.

I'm less surprised about Sugar clearly having a huge amount of cash than, say, an aging rocker somehow being able to afford a house worth $3M or more (meaning Melanie). I think his ostensible "genetic mutation" may be related to the mystery: if he's been self-medicating with large amounts of any "party" drug (heroin, benzos, ketamine, molly, etc.), he may *actually* be able to drink huge amounts of booze without feeling the effects. I know a few people in recovery who have to inform doctors in advance of any procedure requiring sedation that they'll need 2x as much as a normal patient due solely to a decades-old alcohol or substance-abuse problem, even *without* any breaks in sobriety.

As for catching flies with chopsticks: this was one of the more famous scenes in "The Karate Kid" 40 years ago, and I really don't get why they'd redo it, but I assume the point was merely to show that Sugar is both fastidious *and* talented – which happens to be an apropos segue into my hunch about the secret: they're not merely PIs, and I suspect Sugar's either an assassin or possibly so mentally unbalanced due to a prior trauma that he loses control Hulk-style and keeps killing people without even realizing it.

OTOH that doesn't at all explain what Ruby could possibly be up to. Why on *earth* would she be conspiring with the Siegels behind Sugar's back? We already know part of the conspiracy involves human trafficking, but does Ruby know that, and if so, why the FUCK is she going along with it?!? I look forward to finding out tonight!

P.S. I know some of you cunts think anyone other than muscle twunks under 25 is "hideous," Colin looks exceptionally good for his age, and also doesn't appear to have had any cosmetic work done. (Unlike, say, Ben Affleck, who has hair plugs & veneers to thank for his facial appearance.)

by Anonymousreply 73April 30, 2024 7:22 PM

So first day on the Margo/Colin movie- he's maybe 5'10", 5'11" with his hair. Yes it's dyed a reddish brown color, as his facial hair is too. He's slim, doesn't have the gray pallor that inveterate smokers have (I saw him around 2014 at CinemaCon smoking up a storm with...Vince Vaughn?-can't remember- and he was grayish)., and everyone says that he's such a delight to work with. He can definitely turn the charm on, likes to joke around with the crew.

It was my first day, and Margot pretty much keeps to herself, but the crew likes her as well, maybe as not as much as Colin, who will talk about crew's kids and dogs if he sees them as screen locks on people's phones. He really seems to like dogs- he's asked various crew members to bring their dogs to set.

Most of us have met those people whose entire personality are just movies or even have been those people in the past ourselves, so his constant movie references can get annoying on that front. However, now that I know he's not human, it's not as annoying. I too enjoy the inserted film scenes.

And it's didactic as well – for example, I didn't know The Night of The Hunter was the origin of the love/hate knuckle tats. Although sometimes they're pushing this too far. Like when he's telling that lady the plot of The Thing. Like come on, surely someone her age would be at least passingly familiar with the existence of that movie?

He definitely smacked the bullet away with his hand, which was the first *real* hint (IMO) of legit supernatural abilities. It's at least within the realm of the possible to have a metabolism that processes alcohol far quicker than normal – the earlier big hint I totally missed – but this is literal Superman-level shit.

If Olivia's the dog, why is he – I'm sorry, but I can't resist – still so doggedly looking for her? And why on *earth* would she have been hanging out with a total rando homeless guy who OD'd? The alien reveal is absurd enough on its own; it was entirely random that Sugar ran into the homeless dude in the first place, and he approached him solely so he'd look after his car while he went into a DTLA dive bar.

by Anonymousreply 95May 6, 2024 10:47 PM

Why would he take just the white eyed dog that wasn't barking? Maybe he's not alien, just meta human/from the future, like the other Polyglots.

by Anonymousreply 96May 6, 2024 11:57 PM

R96, he took the dog because its owner OD'd, and regardless of the full nature of whatever his secret entails, they've made it extremely clear that Sugar truly cares – extremely deeply – for other living creatures. If anything his overwhelming sense of duty may be his main *problem*: he always wants to help, but doing so appears to be affecting him physically, and Ruby's constant concern may very well be that his extreme sense of duty may be putting all of his fellow aliens in danger.

Also, based on the reviews I've read – from critics who've already seen the entire season – Sugar is definitely an alien, and I'm pretty sure most of that polyglot society is as well. (And where did you get that anyone here's from the future? Having aliens is enough of a stretch; time travel is a bridge too far, with the admittedly huge exception of "Avengers: Endgame."

r105, it was such a fun show to work on. So many gorgeous men.

BTW, Colin dances in ABBBJ (A Big Bold Beautiful Journey). He's pretty good.

Didn't he dance in Kogonanda's last movie, about the robots? He's a good dancer.

Oscar Montoya off Minx has a wonderful Eurovision podcast now, I didn't know he was as fun in real life as his character on the show.

To the poster who suggested the dog might be Olivia – I thought *I* had an overactive imagination! 🤣

Things are moving fast now, post-reveal.

r108, Oscar is a delightful human being- always a smile on his face , always positive energy. I haven't watched ep 7 yet, so thanks for not spoiling r108.

He started as a professional dancer, in "Riverdance."

I fucking hated the twist. It reminds me of the "Friends" episode where Joey's very serious play suddenly ends with him getting on a spaceship to Blargon 7. And now having seen the finale it feels like there was no point to this show whatsoever. Can't believe I wasted so many hours on this crap.

LOL Yes, he does E112. Colin was never in Riverdance. Colin was in some kids show, Ballykissangel? And he learned to dance. I think he once said he taught line dancing when he was much younger during lean times.

I didn’t buy Henry as being part of the plot, didn’t think there were hints of that, it came out of left field. It was obvious Sugar wasn’t going to go home with the others, they never needed the whole obsession with his sister and now the quest for Henry as excuses to keep him on Earth.

I loved the alien twist, I liked and bought the Henry reveal and kinda sensed it too, but the ending left me cold. Was pretty anticlimactic, especially for a limited series. There was a whole lot of style over substance going on in this show, looking back.

This would have made a better movie than miniseries. or maybe it would have worked better had they gone with their original idea and had the John Sugar's alien identity be revealed in the first episode.

There was so much wrong with this, besides letting us hear the serial killer kill the woman with the hammer on the tape (that was really gratuitous). I felt Amy Ryan's character never came together, and she and Farrell had no chemistry. And I just didn't care about the corrupt wealthy producer's family--their problems never seemed to go anywhere. And I never understood the interpolation of brief clips from old films noir into the action--it just seemed like an homage to "Dream On" more than anything else.

The only thing this miniseries had going for it were the visuals--the lovely look of the wealthy people's rooms, with their tasteful neutrals; the glamorous green vintage convertible; the sumptuous recreation of the Sirk-like noir film from the 50s; and Farrell himself with his almost breathtaking physical beauty.

I think you missed the point: it's *not* supposed to be a limited series. While I'd agree that it *should* have been one, and not leave viewers hanging with a huge reveal and cliffhanger, Apple keeps trying to convert compact stories into sprawling tales. I'm assuming "Sugar" will meet the same fate as "Constellation," which also should've been a limited series but couldn't resist gunning for a second season: it was cancelled within weeks of the finale.

I despised the twist, but actually *liked* the Henry reveal. R114, the whole *point* of a good noir movie is to keep you guessing until nearly the very end. I didn't see this one coming, and I usually figure this shit out well before the final episode – I LOVED being surprised!

Oh honey, R116, that gorgeous Corvette is steel blue.

These two himbos at the motel caught my eye so much, I just had to take a screenshot. Her wide-eyed facial expression was everything. Great casting.

Over the years, my crushes come and go. But Colin is forever. I love him.
