Aquarius (NBC) – Starts 28th May – Renewed
Set in the late 60’s an old school detective teams up with a young undercover cop to find a girl kidnapped by folk singer and famed psychopath Charles Manson.
It’s a standard crime drama where the cops bend the rules, intimidate informants and beat up ne’er do wells to get the job done. Whilst this is going on Manson is making great work in forming his cult and forwarding his musical career by extorting the father of the kidnapped girl to arrange meetings with record execs and getting money to record demos.
It’s a lightweight Hannibal.
