HBO Cancels The Brink

HBO Cancels The Brink

After an official renewal it isn’t common to see HBO cancel a series. It takes a lot of effort and time to bring a series to life, even a second season of a series! So it suprised many to hear this afternoon that The Brink had been cancelled by HBO.  Here’s the quote from HBO itself: “After evaluating our schedule and our programming needs, we unfortunately decided we cannot give The Brink the attention it deserves for a second season. We are proud of the first season and wish everyone involved in this show the very best.” The statement is true, actually. HBO’s schedule is going to be bursting at the seams in 2016....

The Brink Season One – The Aftermath

The Brink Season One – The Aftermath

My first impression of The Brink (you can read it here) was a little less than favorable, but you could clearly see the potential of the show. Now that the show’s first season has finished and we know for sure HBO will be doing a second season, the question is, is that the right decision? The Brink has a lot going for it. With a truly wonderful supporting cast including John Larroquette, Erick Avari, Geoff Pierson, Meera Syal and Marshall Manesh, along with the undeniable star power of Black and Robbins, and the support of a network that cares less about ratings than getting people talking, it was almost inevitable that HBO would...

HBO’s THE BRINK Gets Renewed For Season Two

Doomsday has been postponed! No one is going to push the Big Red Button just yet since THE BRINK gets to hold the calamity at bay for another season as HBO announces a sophomore season for the show.  So, the Benibib Brothers, Roberto and Kim, have got to find more ways for Secretary of State Walter Larson (Tim Robbins) and Foreign Service Officer Alex Talbot (Jack Black) to save the day. In the political satire, if you haven’t been watching the 10-part premiere season, we find a volatile situation in Pakistan. Nuclear armament could be the result if Secretary of State Larson can’t talk hawkish President Navarro, (Esai Morales) and the...

The Brink: First Impression

The Brink: First Impression

HBO has long been a leader, a trend setter if you will, when it comes to amazing television and they have rarely cared all that much about ratings, so long as people were talking. In the last decade we have seen HBO utterly dominate this new “Golden Age” of television, winning enough awards to pave Richard Plepler’s (HBO CEO), very long driveway with Emmys! HBO has such a sterling reputation for quality and excellence that it’s sometimes hard to notice when they miss. So powerful is the HBO Brand, that even Sunday nights lack luster debut of “The Brink” barley registered. It’s a proven fact that networks can throw money and...
