Lightweight And Of Little Consequence (revised)
3 October 2016 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

I was drawn to this show (which is based on the backstage happenings at "Larry King Live") because of Piper Perabo. The premise sounded lame to me, but I was willing to give it a chance.

The first episode opens with a sex scene between Julia George (Perabo) and her fiancé. Louise, the star of the TV show Julia produces, is an attractive cougar who beds almost every younger guy she comes in contact with. Julia's assistant, Megan, used to be an escort. It doesn't take long to realize that titillation will be on the menu (along with the beefcake and the cheesecake).

Julia has a strong relationship with a local attorney, Jake Gregorian (Daniel Sunjata). Together they manipulate public opinion for their own ends. She wants ratings and he is always angling in the best interests of his clients.

In episode two, Julia mines a pro bono legal case for its juicier elements to stimulate viewership. Puff Daddy pops by for a few seconds. And there is a fairly interesting story about a mother whose child was abducted.

As a result, I have mixed feelings about "Notorious". Perabo is believable in her demanding leading role. The rest of the cast is fairly strong. But the subject matter is mostly frivolous. And it is not clear yet whether the stars of the show are likable enough to truly care about. I do know that Ms. Perabo's talents can be better used.

Update 10/18/16: After watching a few episodes, my worst fears have been confirmed. There is a smarmy yet sensitive vibe at the center of the show. The staff of the television news show pretend to be the conscience of America, the judge who hands their facts over to the public (jurors) in search of justice. They use their power to bully and coerce. They repeatedly drag the national conversation down into the gutter then seek the moral high ground. Their sources are shadowy and (conveniently) never ending. They cast themselves as the (pseudo-) custodians of conscience, but Julia is reckless and "a self-centered little bitch" according to her own on-air talent.

The worst thing about this show is that tries to normalize the sordid practices of TV news program that specializes in sensationalism, sex, celebrity and sin. We don't need to celebrate that and we don't need to accept it as the rightful and best practices of journalism.

Perabo (and others) can do better. I look forward to her next show. I am lowering my grade to "4".
