    Paramount Network's 'WACO'



    Six-part mini-series on the infamous Waco, Texas siege from '93 between law enforcement and Branch Davidians.

    This cast looks fantastic. Taylor Kitsch (True Detective), John Leguizamo, Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals), Paul Sparks (House of Cards), and Julia Garner (Ozark), among others.

    Begins tonight.

    Oh man, you're right. I'm watching it now. Just saw him, too. It's Rory, though (Scream 4, Igby Goes Down), not captain freak himself, Macaulay. But Culkin's of any kind are gonna fit right in in this.

    Recorded it last night and I really like Michael Shannon acting

    This was a great series. Almost want to read the books it was based on.

    Definitely not the story I remember hearing when this happened.

    Yeah, I read something a week or so before it began that said the interpretation was going to focus on painting the Branch Davidians as much more logical than the media painted them after-the-fact. They kind of alluded to all of that in the closing credits.
