Duchovny Leads 'Aquarius'

Review of the David Duchovny drama, "Aquarius."
Brian Shafe (Grey Damon) and Sam Hodiak (David Duchovny) try to track down
 the whereabouts of a missing teenager in 
Aquarius. (NBC)

While it won't fit the bill for those who are missing Mad Man, the new Aquarius is centered on the 1960's with all the music, fashion and mayhem of the era. The show is about the rise of popularity of Charles Manson set two years before the Tate-LaBianca murders. It stars David Duchovny as Sam Hodiak, a decorated World War II veteran and homicide detective who lives in a world that has turned upside down.

The show begins with Sam receiving a phone call from an old girlfriend asking for his help in finding her 16-year-old daughter, Emma (Emma Dumont), who has disappeared within a group of hippies. The mother of course is distraught, but the father (or stepfather) seems unconcerned. He says that the return of Emma is the moist important thing, but he is really concerned how his reputation will look if this story makes it on the news.
