Lights Out

The pilot episode of this new series by FX is available for free on iTunes. I don't have a whole lot to say about it other that that it's free and it's worth watching.

It's a show about a retired boxer who deals with life post retirement and has to decide if he gets back into the life or not. Well, that's what the pilot was about, anyway. I'm not sure what's going to happen in episode 2. It's a testament to the quality of the show, however, that I will definitely check out episode two. I enjoyed the story, but it was Holt McCallany's performance in the lead role that really won me over. I don't know who this actor is or what he has done before, but he was incredible here.

So... check it out. It's free to download and it's well worth watching.

It captured my interest because I enjoy boxing and because it has two actors from the Wire. I didn't expect much, but maybe that's why I came away so impressed. It's good.
