So this new Masterpiece Mystery series, Zen. Gorgeous production values and Rufus Sewell perfectly cast as the lead -- what's not to like? Well, just about everything else, sadly. First episode, five female characters: secretary/love interest, mother, prostitute, slutty ex-wife, slutty scheming female prosecutor. You never saw so many stilleto heels and push-up bras in your life (except, of course, for Mom). Male characters: all "regular" guys, including the playboy foil meant to make Zen (the "ethical cop") look good as he hits on a subordinate while still legally married. And that name. Aurelio Zen? Please. Yeah, I watch it, for Rufus and Rome, but I have to roll my eyes a lot.
