A Close-Up on SWINGTOWN

Swingtown

Tonight marks the premiere of CBS’s new 70’s drama SWINGTOWN. Early reviews are positive, but what matters is what YOU think of the show. So plan on tuning in tonight at 10pm on CBS. And if you want to learn a little more about the show before hitting that sacred ‘record’ button on the remote, here’s a a rundown and a few SWINGTOWN clips for you to check out.

What’s it all about….
After moving to an upscale lakeside Chicago suburb in July of 1976, Susan and Bruce Miller must confront temptation in the form of their provocative new neighbors, Tom and Trina Decker, while not abandoning their old friends Janet and Roger Thompson. As the adult couples evaluate whether to embrace or avoid newfound personal freedoms, the curious Miller and Thompson children begin to discover and assert their own morality and sexual identities as they come of age in a world on the precipice of change. In a shifting social climate – defined by its music, fashion and style – everyone in SWINGTOWN is confronted with personal choices, experimentation and attitudes.

Get a Sneak Peek…
The following video clips contain spoilers for the premiere SWINGTOWN. If you watch you will be spoiled…I’m just letting you know.

I was a child of the 70’s, albeit the late 70’s. I’m not usually enticed by period shows, but this one looks really well done and it’s certainly peaked by interest. Let me know if you plan on watching and leave a comment letting me know what you think after it airs.

    Even if I tuned into Swingtown and found it enjoyable enough, I will not be watching any new CBS offerings this summer or in the foreseeable future.

    I believe canceling Moonlight was a mistake on the network’s part and won’t be supporting this new CBS show.

    I read in Newsweek about how they had to retool this for CBS after designing it for HBO, and it was really interesting. But I’ll always be curious what it would have been like uncensored.

    I liked Swingtown. It was interesting. I will have to watch it again to get totally hooked, but i took a bite though. It had really good music..
