Fun With Charlie & Friends

Charles-Manson-2

I caught Duchovny’s Aquarius on Hulu, where it is now. I didn’t know what the hell it was. It’s got an insidious vibe, a structural take on the late 60s, the right wing ugliness as a causative factor for social issues, including the rise of Charlie Manson, the antiwar movement, and the Black Panthers. The children rebel against their often reprehensible parents. It’s set in LA, chock full of racist cops, corrupt politicians and their scummy financiers.

Aquarius is surprisingly raw for network television. It’s also a chance to explore, over the course of a season, the cult leader personality of Manson, and how he progressed to the demon we know today.

It’s something to consider, and free if you can endure the commercials (never a given).
