Tokyo Vice - HBO Max - (***Spoilers***) Michael Mann

    This one I have really been looking forward

    Starts April 7th

    Based on Jake Adelstein's non-fiction first-hand account of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police beat, starring Ansel Elgort and Ken Watanabe. The drama captures Adelstein's daily descent into the neon-soaked underbelly of Tokyo, where nothing and no one is truly what or who they seem.

    The first 3 episodes are out.

    I watched the first one and it is excellent.

    It is on StarzPlay on Sunday May 15th

  • Registered Users Posts: 60,016 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson

    Finished episodes 2 & 3 and this is a really great story and even more so that it is based on a true account.

    Looking forward to the rest to the series now.

    it will be on Starzplay in Ireland starting on the 15th of May.

    Really wish HBOMax was coming though. I want it most for the Looney Toons and Adventure Time.

    The BBC have bought the second window rights to show it this side of the world later in the year.

    This is a seriously great show and the story gets more and more intriguing with each episode.

    Watched the two latest episodes ,4&5 and it's continuing to be very good and it's also bringing in a few more characters/storylines.

    I think I read it's only 8 episodes long so I'm guessing there will be a second season as too much going on to be wrapped up in 3 more episodes.

    Absolutely brilliant so far. Michael Mann and Tokyo neon. What more could you ask for? Praying they can sustain the quality right to the end.

  • Registered Users Posts: 83,683 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1

    Tokyo Vice will be exclusively shown in the UK and Ireland on Starzplay from 15th May, with the first two episodes.

    Just finished watching episode 6 and 7 and they have kept up the excellent quality.

  • Registered Users Posts: 60,016 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson

    Can't believe there is only one episode left in this amazing series.

  • Registered Users Posts: 60,016 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson

    Well that was a top class series and Michael Mann at the top of his game.

  • Registered Users Posts: 13,750 ✭✭✭✭Dav010

    While I thought this series was brilliant, I was disappointed with the finale. The series starts with a meeting of Jake and Katagari with the Yakuza, it ended without that meeting being explained. There are too many lose ends for what was described as a “limited series”. The lead has been accused of sexual assault by a number of women and as of yet there is no indication that it will be renewed for a second season with doubts that Elgot would return as the lead if it is. So, disappointing end.

    Its a bit of a misnomer to call it a Michael Mann series, he directed the pilot.

    Come to say I'd recommend this 8 episodes (season1) show by Michael Mann - actually look forward for season2 ha.

    To keep it short, episode1 is definitely a bit 'slow' but after that the pacing is faster and overall production is respectable really. It is almost like a mini documentary with a story (police-journalist-yakuza drama) that actually shows realistic Jap cultural stuff.

    We mainly watch it because of Ken Watanabe but ended up enjoying the plot and many other actors/characters. It is based on the well known book and they have done good work for adapting the source material - if you are into police drama series (this one sets in Japan ha), yes this is a must watch.

    I have this on my HBO watchlist, I must give it a crack judging by everyone's reactions here!

  • Registered Users Posts: 60,016 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson
