I Am the Night, the TV series touching on the brutal ‘Black Dahlia’ murder, left many questions unanswered. The TNT series featured Chris Pine as Jay Singletary, a composite character based on reporters who covered the 1947 murder of Elizabeth Short. Pine’s performance was exemplary, but overall, confusion arose because the series inspired by a true story presents much that is implausible. What’s true and what isn’t? I still can’t answer that question.
If you were addicted to the HBO series Deadwood, welcome to the club. If you were left hanging and disappointed when the series stopped without closure after three seasons, welcome to that club too. News is breaking that should cause us to rejoice. The Deadwood jig is not up. It’s back on, but not all our wishes are being granted.
