New Updated HBO Movie Premiere Opener

New Updated HBO Movie Premiere Opener

Back in the day, when HBO was building its channel it was proud to tout big theatrical premieres on Saturday nights. To usher in each movie there was always a stylized opener. I found a clip that illustrates the changing intros through the years. Watch it below. In the 1980’s the big splashy opening montage came to the screen, it is the one where we soar across the landscape and finally into the heavens where the HBO logo swoops in, and it stuck in everyone’s mind. It is in the montage above; remember it? Nowadays those graphics may not wow you, but the nostalgic impact of the clip and that stirring music sure do. It let you know that...

Happy 44th Birthday HBO!

November 8th, 2016 is not just Election Day here in the U. S. A. but also the forty-fourth birthday of Home Box Office. As we have done the past few years we wish to draw your attention to that fact yet again. However, it gets harder to find cool, nostalgic clips to help celebrate. This year we just offer a hodge-podge of videos we trolled the depths of Internet hell to find. Enjoy! Since 11.08 is also Election Day we will start with these clips. In the first one Selina Meyer encourages you to vote: Also out there is this PSA: Now let’s just grit our teeth and get it done and move forward. Okay, let’s celebrate with some classic...

“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. Of course, it played on HBO here in America beginning in 1983. The multi-award winning series was a large draw for HBO and anchored...

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...

Gary Shandling, Who Was HBO’s LARRY SANDERS, Has Died

Surely you know by now that American comedian, actor, writer, producer and director Garry Shandling died on 03.24.16 at the age of 66.  HBO stated, “Garry ushered in the modern period of original programming at HBO with his brilliant masterpiece, The Larry Sanders Show. All of us at HBO have a special place in our hearts for him, not only for his enormous talent but for his kindness and decency. We will miss him terribly.” He was a comedic master of observational comedy and satire and played it up well. Before that though his start in the industry was writing for the sitcoms Sanford and Son and Welcome Back, Kotter if you...

DEADWOOD TV Movie is “Going to Happen”

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...
