In 6 months, Jeff Bridges will turn 73 years old. Indeed, he is an old man. His character makes those grunting noises from the effort of arising in the morning, and you also overhear a very sporadic urine stream in the middle of the night. Starting in Peter Bogdanovich's seminal "The Last Picture Show," Bridges continued to build an enviable career out of numerous carefully drawn roles, each one truly unique and most of them more memorable than the last. He was finally awarded his long overdue Best Actor Oscar for "Crazy Heart" a few years ago, and then last year we almost lost him because of CoVID-19. But he's back as a beat-up old ex-spy and is perfect for and in this latest complex part.

In 4 months, John Lithgow will be 77 years old. Also by most narrow definitions, an old man. Is he the obvious villain of this story, or might he actually be the hero? You are never quite sure with a Lithgow character, and this one's no exception.

Supporting roles for such long-time pros as Amy Brenneman and Joel Gray are also well written and, of course, superbly well performed. But no mistake: this miniseries totally belongs to the one and only Jeff Bridges. And by extension, to all of us who remain his long-time fans more than a half century later. Not to be missed. 9/10.

Very well directed by Jon Watts the director of recent Spider-Man trilogy and a horror movie called Clown all of which are excellent too! The Old Man starts off gloriously with the acting, intriguing story and suspense are so good. I'm ready for more maybe without commercials though.

The first two episodes are superb. So far the casting is excellent in the series s The style of acting is very well done by the seasoned Pros Jeff Bridges is fantastic in The Old Man, as is John Lithgow. Amy Frederica Brenneman was what this shows needs; an air of mystery in her character Amy brings it just like she did in HBO's The Leftovers. Her sense of vulnerability play so well with Jeff Bridges even when Jeff wants to get the "hell out of dodge" he is drawn to Zoe McDonald, Amy character there is real chemistry as the two actor play off one another. The Old Man has extremely intelligent writing being raised up by the talent of The Ensemble. This thriller is going in some intriguing directions , I am very keen to watch how this series unfolds ! This is excellent network television . I cant wait till next episode ! Premiere episodes 8/10.

The Old Man is a spy thriller that's absolutely worth watching! Jeff Bridges is as terrific as always and does an incredible job making you believe he's still a bad ass at 72! His dogs steal every scene they're in and remind me of the dogs from John Wick. The rest of the cast all are at the top of their game here too, especially John Lithgow (who rarely disappoints)! I know there are a lot of really good spy shows out there to choose from but this has everything you want from a spy thriller and should definitely be seen. The acting, writing, directing, etc. Are all as good as it gets, FX always puts out great content and this show is no different! The only bad thing about this show is we have to wait a week between episodes, I wish they released all them at once like they do on Netflix but since it's on Network tv, I get it. I'm really looking forward to more and recommend this to anyone who's a fan of spy thrillers!

Guys, maybe this is it... After disappointment after disappointment, maybe we finally have a great TV show in 2022. What a breath of fresh air. Pure entertainment, great writing, great acting. So far, it's a great show, let's hope it stays that way. So happy to finally watch something created in 2022 with quality. Thank you.

Now that was a first episode if there ever was one.

Terrific to see Bridges looking well and in such great form. Lithgow, as always, a treasure.

This is going to be fun!

The last time I saw a production this good, it was David Mamet's Spartan (2004, with Val Kilmer). I could have sworn Mamet must be involved here (he isn't), but the writers did an excellent job adapting a Thomas Perry stand alone novel which I have not read.

The actors, naturally, are superb. I'm sure glad Jeff Bridges is the most fit 70-something this side of Clint Eastwood, clothed appearances to the contrary. Lithgow, Brenneman, and some lesser know actors deliver great performaces as well.

Most surprising is the directing, which is excellent as well considering the past experience of the director was some CGI-laden Spiderman movies. This guy knows how to do his job very well! So well, you must turn the sound off on a repeat viewing if you want to truly notice it - the sure test of a solid movie (though the soundtrack here is very complimentary).

An absolute 10/10 from me. While familiar enough not to lose viewers, it is necessary to pay attention, especially when few words are spoken. There is some necessary exposition, and requisite action and violence, but this is so far removed from the normal "ex spy" tropes that it is rewarding for fans of the genre. If you like Amazon's Jack Ryan, this ain't it....

This is one of those rare slowly unfolding gems with high-quality actors. One of my new favorites plays a Young Jeff Bridges. The same guy who played a young Mickey Donovan.

joostice 18 June 2022

But done right. The exhaustion and pain in the fighting scenes are spot on. Anyone who has been in a real street brawl with life at stake knows how fake and nonsense most tv fight scenes are. Only a few shows have ever gotten it right. This is one of them. Another notable realistic tv fight scene was in Deadwood, Hearst's man vs Swearengen's man, the emotion, exhaustion, and desperation. A real drag down brawl is a slog, not a dance.

Anyway. Top rate actors, Bridges and Lithgow, and realism make a generic plot exceptional. Well done.

I hope the rest of this series lives up to the brilliance of the first episode! Jeff Bridges and John Lithgow haven't lost a step in their acting abilities. Can't wait for the rest of the season!

As Episode 1 of "The Old Man" (2022 release; 6 episodes of about 60-65 min each) opens, we are introduced to the old man, a guy named Dan Chase. For reasons unknown, one night someone breaks into his house in an apparent assassination attempt, but the old man instead shoots and kills the intruder. He packs some things , and hits the road, calling his daughter Emily claiming "they found me"... At this point we are less than 15 min into Episode 1.

Couple of comments: Episode 1 is directed by none other than Jon Watts, who directed the recent Spiderman blockbuster movies. As you may recall, Liam Neeson has turned his acting career upside down over the last decade or so, becoming a certified box office hit playing the older but stronger one-man army/gritty lone ranger in various hostage and crime dramas. Someone must've thought "hey, if Neeson can do that, why not Jeff Bridges?", and right they are! Bridges absolutely shines in Episode 1 as the grizzled and gritty veteran (we don't know quite fully understand his back story, other than he has lived off the grid for the last 30 years or so, and now has been exposed and on the run, literally fighting to survive). John Lithgow is a CIA operative called in to chase down the Bridges character. Episode 1 is chock full of action

"The Old Man" premiered on FX a few days ago, and then each just aired episode starts streaming on Hulu, where I caught Episode 1, and I will see Episode 2 shortly. The remaining 4 episodes will be released over the next 4 weeks. Can't wait for that. If you are in the mood for a top-notch good guys/bad guys entertaining crime drama starring great talent like Jeff Bridges and John Lithgow (just to name those), I'd readily suggest you check this out, and draw your own conclusion.

UPDATE I just saw EP 2 and it was better than EP1. It also introduces us to the Amy Brenneman character, and what a delight that is and she is. I am now totally "IN" on this mini-series.
