Okay, not really noir or hard-boiled, but... McKenna and I loved the pilot of CBS's 13-episode horror series HARPER'S ISLAND, starring rara-avis member Jim Beaver as the island's sheriff. Yes, the show is wayyyy over the top with its corny horror-movie clichés... and we loved every minute of it! And pretty damn grisly for a prime-time network show. Just watch the first 6 minutes to get a taste... that's when the first body pops up.
The premise: Years earlier, a killer struck Harper's Island (off the coast of Seattle)... now, in the present, survivors return to the island as part of a wedding party, and we find that the killer's back.
Episode 2 is this Thursday, but you can catch the pilot in entirity here: http://www.cbs.com/primetime/harpers_island/
