Charles Manson: He’s Baaa-aack!

The Guardian: ‘Even though Charles Manson (pictured) has appeared as a character in everything from B-movie exploitation films – there’s a whole Manson-inspired subgenre – to the works of National Book Award winners, via an opera, a German musical [of course] and a novelization of Columbo, I’m often amazed at the running for best Manson Family impersonators – not only how insurmountable the Fat White Manson Family’s lead appears to be, but how the competition can be so weak. Enter NBC. New crime drama “Aquarius” joins the imitation game this week like a uniformed cop at a hip happening. David Duchovny plays a square-faced detective whose missing-persons investigation leads to Charles Manson.’
