How to Make it in America

Posted in Television by Chris on June 7, 2010
How to Make it in America. Where do I begin? I’ve been pondering how to approach this post for the last two months; trying to assure what I wrote would do it justice. After months of deliberation, here goes nothing. The network: HBO. The premise: two 20-something Brooklynites chasing the American dream; hustling, trying to make it in the world of street wear. The cast: Kid Cudi, Bryan Greenberg, Victor Rasuk, Shannyn Sossaman, Lake Bell, Eddie Kaye Thomas, and Luis Guzman. The result: absolute gold. For those of you who are more mathematically inclined… the equation for HTMIIA is as follows: Comedy + Luis Guzman + 200 Black 50/50s = My Unadulterated Attention. It seems Mark Wahlberg tailored another HBO TV show just for me.  Alas, I know that’s not true, but it’s highly entertaining and plays to each characteristic of my existence. To top off my unwaivering love, HTMIIA‘s intro music by Aloe Blacc is even good. Don’t believe the hype? Take a look-see. You can catch up on your episodes online. If you like what you find, you’ll be pleased to know that Ben Gong reports that HTMIIA‘s been renewed for another season.
