True Detective Season 2 Finale: “Omega Station”

True Detective Season 2 Finale: “Omega Station”

And so it ends. The second (and as far as we know final?) season of True Detective. There were a lot of expectations going in and I’m not sure it was possible to meet any of them. If HBO would have tried to recreate the first season it would have fallen short and felt stale, so they tried something different and got flack for being different. It was a lose/lose situation. Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? The first few episodes of True Detective season 2 were admittedly slow. There was a never ending stream of characters to get to know and it was often hard to follow all of the details. Season 1 was such a simple story, in...

First Full Westworld Season One Trailer

You’ve heard the show synopsis, and some lucky insiders have actually seen full clips from HBO’s Westorld. But today, during the True Detective finale, HBO went one step further and previewed the series to the masses in the first full trailer for the show. I could bloviate but you’re here for the goods. Here is the first trailer for HBO’s Westword: Amazing. Incredible. Could this series dethrone Game of Thrones as the biggest, riskiest, most engaging series on HBO? The show was originally set for 2015, HBO even promised us as much in a teaser released earlier this year. But the show has since been pushed to 2016, no...

HBO Drops First Teaser Trailer for Vinyl

The creators of Boardwalk Empire and one of the head honchos from The Sopranos are making another series for HBO. Oh, you’re interested already? Let us tell you a bit more. The show follows the drug using, sex crazed world of music creation in the 1970’s. It stars some big names and from the look of this first trailer, might just be the next big show in this new golden age of television. Martin Scorses and Mick Jagger (yeah, that MJ) are on this production so you know it’s going to be legit. Here’s the first trailer: WOW. You know what this reminds me of? Take the period authenticity of Mad Men, mix it with the...

True Detective Finale Extended to 90 Minutes

True Detective Finale Extended to 90 Minutes

The second season of HBO’s True Detective may have been a victim of high expectations. The first season was an overnight success breaking several “first season of a series” records for the Home Box Office. How could season 2 possibly live up to that? Well, in many critics opinions it hasn’t but HBO’s president cautions us to wait for the finale before passing final judgement: “I think you need to watch the entirety of it…I think the season’s ending is as satisfying as any series we’ve done.” But here’s the kicker: True Detective season 2’s finale will run 87 minutes! We could...
