Sugar (Apple TV+) -- S: Colin Farrell -- Premieres April 5, 2024



“Sugar” is a contemporary, unique take on one of the most popular and significant genres in literary, motion picture and television history: the private detective story. Academy Award nominee Colin Farrell stars as John Sugar, an American private investigator on the heels of the mysterious disappearance of Olivia Siegel, the beloved granddaughter of legendary Hollywood producer Jonathan Siegel. As Sugar tries to determine what happened to Olivia, he will also unearth Siegel family secrets; some very recent, others long-buried.

The series also stars Kirby (“The Sandman”), Amy Ryan (“The Wire”), Dennis Boutsikaris, Nate Corddry (“Mindhunter”), Alex Hernandez (“Invasion”), and James Cromwell (“Succession”), with guest stars Anna Gunn (“Breaking Bad”) and Sydney Chandler (“Don't Worry Darling”).

I watched the trailer this morning. A PI show with Farrell sounds cool. As long as it takes the stench away from Marlowe. That was such a terrible PI movie last year.

Looks like this is 8 episodes: Shows A-Z - sugar on apple tv plus | TheFutonCritic.com

Post-strikes, it seems like the shows aren't letting up. And I know some here churned Apple TV+ because of cost.

Agree with you about Marlowe. I wanted to like it so badly but it was disappointing. The Perry Mason series had a good first season and the second went downhill.

It's hard to believe with all the time the writers have had off from COVID and striking that there isn't better stuff coming out. I expected to see something like a Renaissance of great movies and shows but that theory isn't panning out.

This looks okay. I'll watch anything with Colin Farrell. But Hollywood still doesn't seem to know what to do with him.

This was decent. I love PI/detective movies, love Farrell and Colin does a pretty good American accent. I love that his heartbeat never goes above 45 it seems. And he’s a good guy. Not another scummy, low life PI, but actually a really decent guy. Love that he loves movies and they are interspersed between scenes. Amy Ryan was good too. Pretty good these 2 eps. Will stick with it.

Watched both episodes last night. Was awesome. His scene with "Karl" in the first episode was a phenomenal bit of acting.

I think I may have missed something. How do the murdered girl and her sister play into the story? What's the connection to Olivia?

That hasn't been explored yet. They did just drop that sister angle right on us, though, without any backstory. I'm sure it'll flesh out in the next episodes.

Do we even know why the murdered sister is on Sugar's radar? They kept showing her on his PC screen.

I may need to give this another shot. My wife and I watched the first two episodes and we were not overly invested in it. Not awful but not amazing but perhaps we were not in the mood for it yet. I really liked him in a few things recently but I was never too much a fan of Ferrell before.

the latest episode that I watched at 4 in the morning was very good. I like how it ended too. Colin Farrell exudes charisma and charm and he is in full force with his low key persona...most of the time that is. the latest ep saw him a little bit unhinged. but, great tv.

The show has been so good up until now, I'm actually willing to give this the benefit of the doubt. I certainly didn't see it coming.

I was really liking this show on the sheer PI investigating and cool, non-dysfunctional way Farrell has. Now, I could care less. What a shame they did with that reveal. It was a great detective show until then.
