Aquarius Season 1 Episode 1 Review: “Everybody’s Been Burned” | TVOM

TVOM: "One of the most highly anticipated new shows of the summer is NBC’s Aquarius, a 1967 drama about LAPD detective Sam Hodiak, played by the incomparable David Duchovny, who, while investigating the disappearance of the daughter of an ex-girlfriend, gets caught up with the infamous would-be-rockstar, Charles Manson (Gethin Anthony). Described by showrunner John McNamara as a work of “historical fiction,” Aquarius chooses to tackle an original story while blending in a fictionalized version of the life of Charles Manson, years before the Tate-LaBianca murders for which he would become well-known. NBC is also choosing to experiment with the practice of binge-watching by releasing all thirteen episodes of the show’s first season a day after the series premiere.
