The Ratched Boys

Last week when I shared with you the very first photos from Ryan Murphy's forthcoming Ratched series, starring Sarah Paulson as the villainous electroshock-lovin' nurse from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in her earlier pre-Jack days, I was happy save one complaint -- where the hell was Corey Stoll? Well now the trailer's here and my pissiness has been answered, with Stoll, as seen above. Phew! Also...

... I am pretty sure, after years of extensive studies in the subject of knowing every inch of the personage of Corey Stoll from bald head to big toe, that that shot could also be of him, even though we see no face there. I don't need his face to know, dammit! Maybe Corey Stoll in soaking wet boxer shorts is my religion now. (I should add here that a bird in the know has whispered in my ear that we do indeed see Corey in his boxers at some point on the show, so I could be projecting. But I don't think so. I think that's him.)

Anyway from there I suppose, oh do I ever suppose, that an MNPP dissection of this show's first trailer wouldn't be complete without me including a gif of Finn Wittrock half naked on his knees behind bars. I mean we all know where we are right now. We made our choices to end up here. It's just what fits. And Finn appears to be playing some sort of crazy psycho type on the show, which is exactly how we best like our Finn -- Dandy Forever!

Ratched premiere on Netflix on September 18th!

i've always hoped deep down that corey would play a young captain picard in a prequel star trek next generation movie.

Given Ryan's track record, this show will start out strong then fizzle out by episode 3 as it throws in everything and the kitchen sink to see what will stick. But... I'll still be there watching it. Hope floats
