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...

Are You Still Hoping For A DEADWOOD Movie?

Are You Still Hoping For A DEADWOOD Movie?

Well, so is Garret Dillahunt who played the role of Francis Wolcott in the series. He feels that if you can resurrect ENTOURAGE for the big screen David Milch’s take on the Wild West can do it as well. He tweeted the following:    We know, just because he wishes it so doesn’t make it any closer to happening. However, HBO issued a statement regarding –  “In reference to Garret Dillahunt’s tweet regarding the rumored Deadwood movie, there have only been very preliminary conversations.” We know, just because some small talk happened in the corporate halls doesn’t make it any closer to happening. But consider...

  It’s almost here, The Wire’s complete series on Blu-ray will be available to all for purchase June 2nd, 2015.

Because most fans of The Wire will never be able to resist the opportunity to own a more in-depth item for their collection about one of the greatest television dramas of all time.

Finally, The Wire will re-air in HD December 26th http://hbowatch.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/the-wire-intro.mp4 I have never been to Baltimore, but I still find myself obsessed with the city. Two things recently rekindled this love.

The other was the announcement that The Wire was being remastered and reaired in HD. Obsessive attention to detail and realism Through annual The Wire viewings and the continual pressure I place on everyone I know to spend the time immersing themselves in...

Happy 42nd Birthday HBO!

  Okay, so it isn’t a milestone anniversary year for HOME BOX OFFICE, but I felt the need to not let the date November 08 go by without a salute to the network we love. It began broadcasting back in 1972 and as this writer’s first post on HBOWatch indicates I was lucky enough to get the premium channel in my household in those early days. Regarding those formative years Wikipedia states – In the summer of 1971, while on a family vacation in  France, Charles Dolan came up with the concept for a cable-originated television service called “The Green Channel“. Dolan later presented his idea to Time-Life management;...
