True Detective Season 2 Air Date Window Shifts

True Detective Season 2 Air Date Window Shifts

Many of you have been patiently waiting for news about the HBO 2014 sleeper hit True Detective. Ever since season 1 panned up into the stars and faded to black the biggest question on all of our minds has been “when will True Detective season 2 air?” Normally HBO is very consistent with their premiere dates. A series that premieres in the spring such as Game of Thrones will continue to air in subsequent springs each and every year. Many times we’ve even been able to predict the exact Sunday that an HBO series would premiere on well before they’ve made it official.  It’s like clockwork, in a way. But True...

Boardwalk Empire Season 5 Teasers: “One Is the Loneliest” & “Saint James”

Boardwalk Empire Season 5 Teasers: “One Is the Loneliest” & “Saint James”

A new trailer has surfaced and we add it here: It sounds like only one man will stand alone when all is said and done. Just which one will it be? By the looks on their faces none of these men are going to go down easily. But, clearly some will be on the bad end of a “tommy gun” and in a pine box because, well…   All Empires Must Fall.   We also just learned that the series will jump forward in time. This is the final season of Boardwalk Empire. Are you sad to see it go? Cry with us all in the comments...

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...
