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 Detective Season 1 DVD/Blu-ray Review

True Detective Season 1 DVD/Blu-ray Review

First off this writer offers an apology for getting this review out so late. If you have wanted your own copy of the highly touted Season One of TRUE DETECTIVE surely you would have snapped it up by now. In fact you can order it right this second for about 40 bucks.  The reason for the delay is simple: HBOWatch was not privy to an advance copy so we had to wait until the street date. Then when it arrived, I admit I could have rushed straight into it but, I selfishly wanted to marathon all eight episodes again instead of just jumping into the new content. Well, that late night binge is over and I can say, even though I knew the story...

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...

So you’ve been watching Game of Thrones religiously through all three seasons.  You broke down and started reading the George RR Martin novels, even the Dunk and Egg prequels!  But now you’re lost.  With months until season 4 and a new book at least a year out, you need something to satisfy your craving.

Well many of us thought this might happen!  True Blood has had a great run with millions of viewers tuning in every Sunday night these past 6 summers.  We know that many of you are saddened by this news and will likely be feeling rage, a sense of loss or maybe even betrayal.   True Blood has a longer than usual run on HBO.  And maybe we can all take solace in the fact that this might mean good things for the hopefully long-running Game of Thrones series and other potential HBO hits in the future.   Here’s the official word from HBO this morning: LOS ANGELES, Sept. 3, 2013 – The hit show TRUE BLOOD will end its run in 2014, it...

Arnold Rothstein and the 1919 World Series Fix

Arnold Rothstein and the 1919 World Series Fix

In light of the massive player suspensions recently doled out by Major League Baseball, now seems like the most appropriate (or inappropriate?) time to talk about the great Arnold Rothstein.  Anyone who is a true fan of baseball knows the name Arnold Rothstein.  It exists as an anathema, one of the ultimate curse words.  Everyone knows he fixed (set up who would win the games before they were played) the outcome of the 1919 World Series, when the Chicago White Sox played the Cincinnati Reds; the White Sox – later nicknamed the Black Sox – threw the World Series and lost, and eight of their players were forever banned from the sport of...

First Teaser Trailer for GIRLS Season 3

First Teaser Trailer for GIRLS Season 3

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from the set of HBO’s Girls. Last we heard there was a bit of trouble on the set but this trailer at least lets us know that the show must go on, of course! Prepare your millennial, 90′s grown body for the ultimate tease: Well it wasn’t much but at least we’re given a YEAR as a premiere date. We anticipate Q1 or early Q2 for the new season just as the last two have been so you won’t have to wait too long in 2014. The trailer also revealed a new “in production” page that seems to be up tonight. Right now there are some interesting photos from the set...
