HBO Confirms: Westworld will have 2015 Air Date

Are you the type of person who thinks The Leftovers is just “too straghtforward”? Well, you might enjoy the mind games that HBO is playing with fans who are eager for any and all news about their upcoming series: Westworld starring… well, everybody.  And by everybody we mean: Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Evan Rachel Wood and more!  Need more convincing?  How about Jonathan Nolan and J.J Abrams at the helm?  Okay, you’re in– good.

The Sopranos Complete Series on Blu-Ray: Full Review

The Sopranos Complete Series on Blu-Ray: Full Review

Many television shows tout themselves as “the greatest of all time”. Of course, this would be a subjective measure not to mention the differentiation in genres across the board.  Is The Wire better than Seinfeld?  Is Saturday Night Live more poignant than Mad Men?  Who knows.  But without hesitation you could say that HBO’s The Sopranos is one of the greatest shows of all time.  Without Tony Soprano there would be no Walter White, Dexter or even The Hound from Game of Thrones.  Truly bad men by most human measures but “our heros” nevertheless. But rather than debate the nature of “greatest of all...

Finally: HBO Will Be Available “Stand-Alone” Without a Cable Subscription in 2015

Finally: HBO Will Be Available “Stand-Alone” Without a Cable Subscription in 2015

Everyone hates the cable company. From the random fees for unknown services to the rate hikes that seem to happen every year– the cost of an HBO subscription has been much more than the $10-$20 price tag.  For those, known as “cord-cutters” HBO has been literally impossible to obtain legally without a cable package of some kind forcing many to turn to piracy. Today the future of television took one step forward as the rumblings of the past few months turned out to be true: HBO will be available as a stand-alone, Netflix-like service in 2015! HBO has been the profitable crown jewel in the portfolio of the mega-media...

Around this time, Stephenie Meyer was just publishing Twilight, a four...

True Blood: “A Farewell to Bon Temps”

True Blood: “A Farewell to Bon Temps”

I’ve been watching True Blood since the day the pilot premiered. I remember seeing the preview, months before it actually aired, and vowing in that moment that I was going to become a dedicated Truebie. Years and some disastrous seasons later, that statement is still true. And despite the way the show has changed throughout the years, and the seasons that have fallen short of its initial greatness, I still find myself clinging to the hope that our final goodbye with the character we’ve grown to love will be as perfect as I’ve always imagined. “True Blood: A Farwell to Bon Temps” served as a reminder of all of the things that drew...
