Definitely digging this new series The Alienist. A serial killer is loose in 1890s New York City and Theodore Roosevelt is the chief of police! He enlists the help of a small team of brilliant experts, including a criminal psychologist, a new field of study then and at that time called an Alienist. The Killer is reminiscent of Jack the Ripper as he is extremely brutal and instead of women, killing young prostitute boys. Yeah, New York was a gritty and cruel place at that time. The highly addictive show, check it out! Mondays 9 p.m. on TNT Network.
This show had me excited from its first teaser trailer to its premiere! Now, at the end of every episode, I am on the edge of my couch, biting my no-longer existent fingernails, whining about having to wait for another whole week to see what’s next!
As for the cast, I could die happy w/ Daniel Bruhl as the neighborhoodAlienist! Perfect! As is Luke Evans as a smart, handsome illustrator, Dakota Fanning as an undaunted woman in a mans’ world! Then, Q’orianka Kilcher!! Omg, I just can’t.. she is just too wonderful! I love her…(even if I did have to Google her name 2x in a row so as not to misspell it) lol!! I’m rooting for her as much as anyone! This beauty says everything without saying anything!
I have always thought Michael Ironside is a great actor. Always makes great choices. Love him in the Alienist as JP Morgan. Small role but just reminds me how many great Movies he’s been in.
