The Show That Killed "Deadwood"

Oh how I hate "John From Cincinnati," the HBO surfing drama/sci-fi series that literally displaced "Deadwood" just as it was reaching dizzying heights of brilliance. Now David Milch, the creator of both of them, tries his darndest to make me hate it even more with his pronouncements.
“I am an instrument of purposes that I don’t fully understand,” [Milch] said, not caring how grand or silly it might sound. “Time will tell whether I am a wing nut or a megalomaniac,” he added. “The difference between a cult and faith is time. I believe that we are a single organism, and that something is at stake in this particular moment.”
Oy. But yeah, I'll watch it.
