“Dance Your Cares Away” As FRAGGLE ROCK Returns to HBO!

“Dance Your Cares Away” As FRAGGLE ROCK Returns to HBO!

As the show used to say – “Dance your cares away; worries for another day. Let the music play; down at FRAGGLE ROCK!” And now you can all over again. HBO has announced that all five seasons, for a total of 96 episodes, of the iconic Jim Henson Company series will replay at HBO. This time around it is remastered to pop out at you in HD. Ohh. Ahhh.  The children’s show was a multinational endeavor that was produced between Canada, France, the U. K. and the U. S. via Jim Henson’s international company.

Ian McShane is Ready for More DEADWOOD

Ian McShane is Ready for More DEADWOOD

We have all kind of done our on style of begging and wishing over David Milch’s DEADWOOD to return after hastily being taken off the air after its 2006 season. Here it is almost ten years later (its last episode aired 08.27.06) and we are still waiting for anything, a big screen movie, a TV movie, a limited series to continue the story that ended too soon. Ideally, of course, we want all the original players to return. Even though they have successfully moved on we would still what the likes of Timothy Olyphant, Powers Boothe, John Hawkes, Molly Parker, Kim Dickens, Paula Malcomson and all the rest to return. And the show certainly would...

DEADWOOD TV Movie is “Going to Happen”

  Pretty big attention getting statement above, but the words were uttered by HBO President of Programming himself, Michael Lombardo, at the Television Critics Association event where all the HBO news has been pouring out of lately. We hang on plenty of hopes around here at times like the return of Larry David, ROME and a DEADWOOD movie. That last hope has taken one step closer to reality with the words spoken from Lombardo: “David has our commitment that we are going to do it. He pitched what he thought generally the storyline would be — and knowing David, that could change. But it’s going to happen. [David Milch] has something...

Happy 43rd Birthday HBO!

Happy 43rd Birthday HBO!

November 08, 1972 was the day when an innovative entertainment network was launched called Home Box Office. We broke down the pay channel’s history when we celebrated it last year. So, this year, to honor the network we love we have to change it up a bit from just reiterating the history again. (Head back to the previous post for that.) But I did find a great clip to share highlighting some of the achievements HBO has had over the years. Please check out this well done video. There has been over those years quite an interesting assortment of content. Sadly, HBO does not re-air, or have on its sites, some of the shows from the past. Can...

He tweeted the following:    We know, just because he wishes it so doesn’t make it any closer to happening.

But consider...
