HBO’s “Ahhh” Promos– We List All the Characters!

We know you’ve seen the launch of HBO’s new promos. Everyone is showing them. You know, you couple your stable of talent to spoof aniconic sounds effects and you magically capture the thrill of HBO’s content, or so they hope. It might just take you a second to figure out what is happening in the promos, especially since some of the shots rush by so fast. The talent appearing, and we’ll break it down on just who they are in a bit, seem for the most part to be in character.

Movies On HBO: WAR DOGS

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review WAR DOGS, the story of two unexpected arms dealers, and are surprised because we were sure we’d have someone. Nevertheless, we draw your attention to this film as it debuts on HBO on SATURDAY, APRIL 08 at 8:00pm. Here is how Warner Bros. describes their movie – Two friends in their early 20s (Jonah Hill and Miles Teller) living in Miami Beach during the Iraq War exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. Military contracts.

Peter’s goal seemed to be more oriented towards seeing her return at the end of each day and keeping her safe because she is a Host that seems to interact with Guests quite often. He is good in his role until, you know, he glitches. Hey, that’s right. He is one...

BIG LITTLE LIES Does Well For HBO

BIG LITTLE LIES Does Well For HBO

The more the limited series like BIG LITTLE LIES, THE YOUNG POPE and THE NIGHT OF do for HBO the more likely these types of programs are to make it on the screen. The latest, starring Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Alexander Skarsgård and Laura Dern, had healthy numbers. The last episode of 04.02 entitled “You Get What You Need” drew 1.9 million viewers for the 9:00pm showing. That is good considering not everyone subscribes to the pay channel. That number is up from the 1.4 million viewers from the previous episode. Overall, the finale due to multiple airings tallied 2.5 million. Viewership was said to grow as the...
