Shut Eye (Hulu) -- S: Jeffrey Donovan -- Series Thread -- Premieres 12/7/16

free image hosting

Charlie Haverford (Jeffrey Donovan) is a scammer with a small chain of fortune-telling storefronts and contracts building tricks for a family that controls the business in the greater chunk of Los Angeles. A blow to the head from a client's angry boyfriend intersects with a hypnosis session while auditioning a new "clairvoyant," and suddenly, a man whose entire life has been based on fraud begins to see and feel some very real and fundamental truths. Charlie's wife Linda (KaDee Strickland) is sick and tired of their mediocre life and wants to break away from Fonso (Angus Sampson), the single father who runs the Marks family's psychic empire and controls the Haverford's future. Isabella Rossellini co-stars as Rita, the cunning, seductive and sadistic matriarch of the Marks clan.

10 episode 1st season

All episodes will be available as of 3:01am ET on Wednesday


This is a new Hulu original series.

Hulu original dramas don't seem to be really popular here. The Path and 11.22.63 got moderate attention. Chance with Hugh Laurie from House, which premiered less than 2 months ago has really gotten no attention at all. I guess most of you have really full DVRs and are barely staying caught up with regular TV. That sort of applies to me. I've only seen a few episodes of Chance, but will re-visit it when I get some time and get caught up.

I loved Donovan on Burn Notice and I like Kadee Strickland as well. Want to try this, but not sure when though.

Watched the pilot, it's psychic mafia with bit of a twist. Nicely shot, definitely a more serious take on the fake psychic genre, it kind of reminds me of The Riches.

I don't have much to watch now so I'll stick with it. As with Hulu's Casual, the cast is just thoroughly recognizable, had no idea Emmanuelle Chriqui, Angus Sampson, David Zayas were regulars. Also like Casual, some nice Strickland tits, and lesbian scenes.

Hulu seems to be 1080p on most platforms for some of it's originals (and a few movies). 4k on the PS4 Pro and XBOX One S as well. Still 2.0 audio tho.
