US Drama series. Los Angeles, 1967. Welcome to the Summer of Love. Aquarius stars David Duchovny as Sam Hodiak, a seasoned homicide detective whose investigations dovetail with the activities of real-life cult leader Charles Manson in the years before he masterminded the most notorious killings of a generation, the Tate-LaBianca murders. A small-time but charismatic leader with big plans, Manson has begun to build up his family, recruiting vulnerable young men and women to join his cause. Teaming up with a young cop who will help him infiltrate Manson’s circle, Hodiak is forced to see things through the questioning eyes of someone who came of age amongst the current anti-establishment counterculture. Edgy, addictive and visually stunning, the Age of Aquarius is here.

Cant wait to see it!
Undeservedly harsh reviews?
Honestly, for a network drama, it’s not bad. The main failing is Manson was terribly miscast with an actor who captures subtle shifts in emotion, but lacks charisma and true menace, so a lot of impact is lost in the four episodes I’ve watched. Maybe he cleaves to the role as things progress.
Duchovny is pure Mulder, but it can’t be helped- this is a tight fit. He does his best to play a fairly rounded character; the result is warm, funny, charming, and thus very familiar. His supporting actors are given a lot less to work with, so it’s not their fault things feel flat at times. Claire Holt really shines, but the young narco is too obvious a foil, illustrating the changing/troubled times. The girl playing Emma is lovely and expressive. Her father is effective, if melodramatic, and the mother is somewhat dynamic as well.
Motivations are muddled in some confusing scenes, and the focus shifts to side stories too much. Some reviews described it as a cloying pastiche of the 60’s, but Los Angeles kind of IS that. They do rely heavily on cliches, tropes, stock characters and overt music... Despite all that, it was entertaining enough to keep me on the treadmill for four hours tonight!
