Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


Just north of the border, in the tired coastal town of Imperial Beach, CA, live three generations of surfing royalty turned societal misfits. The Yost family’s reign and reputation, once defined in the curl of a perfect wave, has been eroded by years of bad luck, addiction and hubris. But just as things look like they can’t get any worse, a stranger named John arrives — and the Yosts' banal existence is lifted into something profound, miraculous and, possibly, universal. From David Milch and 'surf-noir' novelist Kem Nunn comes this groundbreaking HBO drama series about the surfing Yost family whose awesome athletic talents have for generations seemed to come with a curse attached. Bruce Greenwood, Rebecca De Mornay, Brian Van Holt, Austin Nichols, Ed O’Neill, Luis Guzman, Matt Winston, Greyson Fletcher, Willie Garson and Luke Perry head up the ensemble cast.

John From Cincinnati

This show is one of the most well written shows I have ever seen. This show somehow successfully combines scifi,drama,comedy, and action all into one very intriguing show. It leaves many questions at the end of the season. That's because however HBO didnt decide to continue the series, with much dissapointment, I was hoping that this show would go on for years. The characters are full, the writing is great, the premise of the show itself is very original I LOVED IT!

No need to watch this - too much profanity

Thought I'd test a new T.V. show. Totally dissapointed. The writing is shallow - every other word is a curse word - the temperment of the show rides on a wave of anger. Ironically, this show could be a reality t.v. show out of NY city on the highway at rush hour. Every character you meat, except one, is angry, uses the F-word in place of other more descriptive English words and - if you bother to see this first episode thru to the end- hoping it ends on a highnote - your brain is so poluted / tainted with that bad in-the-gut feeling that the end hardly matters, you're just pi**ed, b/c you waisted $ on buying this episode which you would't bother to see on t.v. My advice to the writers is write a better script, make the viewer feel more upbeat. Remember, people watch t.v. to escape their everyday reality.

This Show is Not for You

But if it will feel like the writers got inside your head and used your subconscious as inspiration to give you treats you never knew you had in you. It is almost physically painful that HBO killed it in its infancy but it would have been ugly to watch the show degenerate into something banal to be syndicated to A&E or TBS. So, the whole experience was...perfect.
