The Knick Season 2 Premieres in October

The Knick Season 2 Premieres in October

Do you lay awake at night while your thoughts drift to some of the disturbing scenes in The Knick? Oh, that’s just me? Well if you’re a fan of Clive Owen you’ll be happy to know that we finally have a narrowed premiere window for The Knick season 2. Cinemax has been releasing several teaser videos for the new season. And by teaser we certainly mean TEASER because these are nothing more than some sound effects and a scene that may or may not be from season 1 of The Knick.  Here’s an example: Well, it does give you the same atmosphere you’ve come to expect from The Knick. Now, these trailers only say “This...

HBO’s Westworld Delayed to 2016

HBO’s Westworld Delayed to 2016

Wondering why we haven’t seen a trailer for HBO’s next mega-smash hit Westworld?  So were we. Until we stumbled upon an interview with THR today where HBO’s programming chief Michael Lombardo gave us an update admitting that Westworld will miss its 2015 premiere date promise: “The pilot is a really powerful starting point, but when you’re doing a series, you go, ‘OK, so what’s the next episode? What’s bringing you in?’ You can’t just be a spectacle every week.” Wait, who doesn’t want a spectacle every week!? It doesn’t look like Westworld will be premiering this...

HBO Now is Available… Now

HBO Now is Available… Now

Today is one of the most important days in HBO’s history.  For decades now, HBO has been a premium cable channel, available via a traditional subscription and access to a coaxial cable in your living room wall.  A few years back HBO launched HBO Go, a streaming app that allows you to watch HBO shows on the go.  But there was just one problem: you still needed a traditional cable package from a corporation like Comcast, Time Warner Cable or DISH Network.  Not a problem for everyone but for some, it was everything. Effective immediately, the game has changed forever.  HBO Now, the new streaming service similar to HBO Go is available...

Geoge R.R. Martin Planning A New HBO Series

Geoge R.R. Martin Planning A New HBO Series

George R. R. Martin is in collaboration with HBO to create a sci-fi drama work under the title of CAPTAIN COSMOS! At first I thought this a belated April Fool’s Day joke when the above bit of news came to our attention. Mr. Martin, creator of the “The Song Of Fire & Ice” series of fantasy novels, cannot even finish his current project let alone ramp up something new, so surely this wasn’t true. It wasn’t until we recalled that George was indeed in a first-look development deal with Home Box Office to create new material that it dawned on us that this could be fact. Another hint that he is carving time out to work on the new...

Dear friends, readers, Truebies, haters, etc., welcome to the final review of the series finale of “True Blood.” We are honored to have you here.
