Cutting Through the Clutter, TV Edition September 19, 2006Posted by David Card in Media.
The debut episode of CBS’ heist series “Smith” is sponsored solo by Warners’ “The Departed,” a Scorcese true-life crime drama. Only two commercial breaks, and they’re trailers. Nice. Cutting through the clutter is a serious issue online, too.
Unfortunately, Ray Liotta standing around in shades to a soundtrack that sounds just a bit too much like boom chucka boom boom 70s porn music is a little less than captivating, even with Virginia Madsen. On the other hand, “The Unit” had a Mamet script tonight. Hooah.
