    Aquarius on NBC

    Premiers Thursday, May 28th @9pm!


    Aquarius | NBC

    Aquarius (TV Series 2015


    ABOUT THE SHOW
    Los Angeles. 1967.

    "Sam Hodiak (David Duchovny, "Californication," "The X-Files"), a decorated World War II vet and homicide detective, barely recognizes the city he's now policing.

    Long hair, cheap drugs, rising crime, protests, free love, police brutality, Black Power and the Vietnam War are radically remaking the world he and the Greatest Generation saved from fascism 20 years ago.

    So when Emma Karn (Emma Dumont, "Salvation," "Bunheads"), the 16-year-old daughter of an old girlfriend, goes missing in a sea of hippies and Hodiak agrees to find her, he faces only hostility, distrust and silence. He enlists the help of Brian Shafe (Grey Damon, "True Blood," "Friday Night Lights") - a young, idealistic undercover vice cop who's been allowed to grow his hair out - to infiltrate this new counterculture and find her.

    The generational conflict between the two is immediate and heated, yet they're both dedicated officers and soon realize the need to bring Emma home is more urgent than they foresaw.

    The immediacy arises because she has joined a small but growing band of drifters under the sway of a career criminal who now dreams of being a rock star: Charles Manson (Gethin Anthony, "Game of Thrones").

    Ringing with the unparalleled music of the era, "Aquarius" is a sprawling work of historical fiction that begins two years before the 1969 Tate-LaBianca murders. It's a shocking thriller, a nuanced character drama and, in the end, the story of how we became who we are today."

    I will be watching this since this was very much happening in my late teens. (class of 69)..I read that after the first episode is shown on TV, all remaining episodes can be streamed online

    Yay! I'm looking forward to this series. I love the time in which it is set. I hope it's good.

    I have a real fascination with LA during the 1960's. I'm not sure why.

    Me too, Debb!

    Even though I lived in Boston, I remember the horrific murders while LA seemed sooooo far away to me!

    And then I followed the trial (as much as one could back in those days) and then read the book 'Helter Skelter'!

    I was too scared to read the book. I watched a little of the tv movie Helter Skelter, but that freaked me out too.

    I read the book & loaned it to someone years ago & never got it back. Still angry about that.
    Does the highlighted part mean the remaining episodes won't be on TV? I sure hope they are. I don't belong to any streaming sites & they don't want me because I don't have PayTV.

    Found this info Miss Scarlet:

    The full 13 episodes will remain up on the various digital platforms for a four-week period, while each new one-hour episode will continue to premiere, as planned, each week in the 9 p.m. Thursday timeslot on NBC.

    I wonder what they mean by "various digital platforms"? Netflix? Comcast OnDemand? I don't like watching films on my laptop instead of a big flat screen TV. But I love the idea of NBC offering to put it out for binge watching!

    The season is set 2 years before the murders. And they have already good a road map for 6 seasons worth of shows.

    No worries, Punkin, you will be able to watch the show on your TV weekly!

    I agree with you. I do not like watching TV on my computer.

    Aquarius (U.S. TV series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "On April 29, 2015, NBC announced that, immediately following the premiere's broadcast, it will release all 13 episodes of Aquarius on its website, the NBC mobile app, and other video-on-demand platforms for a four-week period.

    The episodes will also be televised in their normal timeslot
