I was intrigued when I heard they were doing a TV series based on the movie American Gigolo from 1980. I wondered what they were going to do with that, and whether Richard Gere would make a cameo appearance. It is based on the same character that Richard played in the eighties, so I just had to see it. I set my DVR to record it and then I got to see the first pilot. I don’t have a kind word to say about the TV series, it was horrible. I deleted it from my DVR and refused to even give it a second chance. My time has value, the TV version of American Gigolo does not.
