Marvel’s SCARLET Comes To Cinemax Not HBO!

Marvel’s SCARLET Comes To Cinemax Not HBO!

Nothing is confirmed to series yet, but the Marvel property SCARLET is in early development at HBO’s sister channel. One of the Marvel Comics gurus, Brian Michael Bendis, attended the to talk all things Marvel and let out the following news. “I do a book called Scarlet which is soon to be announced also in our universe of television. Not announced yet, but HBO.” [It is] “at the earliest stage,” [but that] “the team around it…will be announced as soon as all are on the same page.” A number of outlets jumped on the story all declaring that HBO was developing the Marvel content. That is true, but not quite. The SCARLET concept...

Cinemax Makes OUTCAST Episode One Available

Cinemax Makes OUTCAST Episode One Available

As we stated in a previous post Cinemax is debuting its supernatural show OUTCAST on June 3. The show got quick buzz as it offered up facts and a cast at both New York and San Diego’s Comic Con events in 2015. This year’s SWSX hosted the world premiere of OUTCAST’s premiere episode and off of all that buzz and attention the show, based on the Skybound/Image comic title by creator Robert Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta locked in a Season two commitment. Now Cinemax has been kind enough to open up the show’s first episode to non-subscribers.  The series follows Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by demonic possession all...

VICE PRINCIPALS, SILICON VALLEY and OUTCAST Debuting at SXSW in March

You all know what SXSW is, right? It stands for South By Southwest which is a 3-in-1 music, film and interactive media festival under one banner. It happens in Austin, Texas every year in March and can last for days. Tool about the festival’s website to see what going down in the heart of Texas. Trust me a lot is happening doing the nine day event from March 11 – 20, but we are, naturally, singling out the HBO content.  The new HBO series VICE PRINCIPALS and the new Robert Kirkman CINEMAX series OUTCAST will make their world premieres at panels of the 2016 SXSW Music, Film and Interactive Festival this March, while the panel for...

Our Thoughts on THE KNICK Season Three

Our Thoughts on THE KNICK Season Three

This speculation of what could come ahead in a third season of Cinemax’s smash hit was prompted by two reports from Variety.  Information comes via an interview with Clive Owen and secondly of reports of an outline in the works. Exactly how it could all unfold with one crucial character seemingly deceased is a mystery. But, then so is John Snow!   First, is a portion of Owen’s interview: Just to get the elephant out of the room, is the last we’ve seen of you as Dr. Thackery? It certainly looks that way.   Did you and Steven talk at the beginning of the season about your fate? Was this pre-conceived or did you just get...

The Knick Season Two Finale: “This Is All We Are”

The Knick Season Two Finale: “This Is All We Are”

You have no idea how hard I yelled at the television screen in front of me. In a terse, emotionally charged season finale, we see some of the good guys win and we see the seedier elements get what they want. Is it fair? Is it morally just? It all depends on what you’re personal definition of morality is. Fans watched as Cleary came to rescue John from off the floor at Ping Wu’s heroin establishment. It pretty much goes downhill from there and this episode was not one for the weak or faint at heart. Fans watched as Cornelia was given information that implicated her brother in their father’s death and the fire of what was going to be...

The Knick: “Do You Remember Moon Flower?”

The Knick: “Do You Remember Moon Flower?”

We’re witness to many awful things in the penultimate episode. (First, if you need to witness the last one, go ahead.)  There were four themes that I picked up on during this one: sex, racism, parental roles and how power tends to corrupt all. In a flashback to 1894, we see the history between Robertson and Thackery and how Thack saved an entire village from small pox. We see how Robertson made his fortune and how he was able to cut costs by travelling through Nicaragua, in order to save time and money, to get to the Pacific. Robertson also brought with him disease (cargo full of small pox germs), which the local police held him...
