Aquarius

Isis Town and Country - - Life -

Wedne­day, Seven, 9.30pm

David Du­chovny (right) is blessed with a screen pres­ence that pulls you in. As the moody and de­struc­tive lead in Cal­i­for­ni­ca­tion he was an ad­dic­tive train wreck, and be­fore that he brought a hand­some, yet geek­ish, swag­ger to the para­nor­mal in The X-Files. Fast-for­ward to to­day though, and Aquarius isn’t go­ing to el­e­vate him to higher lev­els. At best, this is an in­ter­est­ing pe­riod/cop drama loosely based on the Man­son fam­ily that is a lit­tle too bogged own in clichés of 1960s Amer­ica. It all looks good, but ould have been a much smarter af­fair. In tonight’s dou­ble episode, Ho­diak (Du­chovny) loses con­trol and goes on a bender with vi­o­lent con­se­quences.
