The Leftovers Season 2 is Coming

The Leftovers Season 2 is Coming

Season 2 is coming but answers to your burning questions?  Probably not just yet. After a longer than average wait for the news HBO announced today that it’s new series from the creator of Lost, Damon Lindelof will be renewed for a second season! We’d sort of wondered what had been taking HBO so long with this one since they normally renew a series relatively early in the show’s ongoing season. But sooner or later we had a feeling we’d get the word of a second season for The Lefovers. Ratings have been steady, even better than expected given the summer time slot, and while may reviewers are baffled by the show,...

Ed Harris Joins Sci-Fi/Western Series WESTWORLD

Ed Harris Joins Sci-Fi/Western Series WESTWORLD

The universe that is Westworld on HBO continues to grow. First we heard that Anthony Hopkins & Evan Rachel Wood were starring. Next a bevy of talent joined the cast from HBO veterans to brand new faces. But all of these beautiful, kind faces needed something to balance them out, right? How about an evil villain for the robotic theme park of the future?  The Man in Black.  No, seriously– that’s his name. He’s described as “the distillation of pure villainy into one man.” Sound interesting?  With these names, this budget and this network behind it can Westworld possibly go wrong? Westworld is heading into...

True Blood Season 7: Almost Home

True Blood Season 7: Almost Home

Expletives will be shouted from the mountain tops in frustration at some of the stupider highlights from this past Sunday’s episode of True Blood. There’s your warning. So let me just start by saying it’s a fucking miracle that these people remember to breathe. Eric’s captured Sarah Newlin. Jason has yet another notch to add to his bedpost of dead girlfriends. Sam and Arlene just kind of exist at this point (was it ever established that he’s mayor again, or did that title just kinda drop off him when the town went crazy and then the townspeople died? Also, who’s still alive in that town?) Sookie looked for...

The Leftovers Season 1: “Solace for Tired Feet”

The Leftovers Season 1: “Solace for Tired Feet”

This season of the Leftovers has been rocky at best, some episodes are fantastic others not so much, thankfully this week’s episode is great. It delves in the history of some of the main characters, and gives us a better understanding of characters like Kevin Garvey Sr., who continues to be one of the most interesting characters of the show.   The Fridge Game The cold open of this episode features the continuing plight of the disaffected youth. It seems as if there is nothing these troubled teens won’t do in order to find some high, or feeling of intensity. The object of the game is simple; lock yourself inside of an old fridge to...

The Evolution of Sansa Stark

The Evolution of Sansa Stark

If you ask people who their favorite female Stark is, most people will probably say Arya. She’s pretty cool. I mean, she runs around stabbing people and being a baby assassin. However, Sansa gets overlooked, consistently. From the beginning, she’s portrayed as the typical girly sister while Arya is the patriarchy-bucking sister. However while Arya is basically a missing child turned killer, Sansa’s character is evolving interestingly.               In the beginning, Sansa was the stereotypical female character. She thought only of her place among the court and her future with Joffrey as his betrothed...

First Full Boardwalk Empire Season 5 Trailer

First Full Boardwalk Empire Season 5 Trailer

Boardwalk Empire is jumping into the 30’s this year but it’s also jumping out of our lives as well. From the looks of this trailer Lucky Luciano is going to take center stage and that’s okay by us. We can’t wait to see what this actor does with his role as he’s been more of a background character thus far in the series. Here’s the first full trailer for Boardwalk Empire season 5: What do you think about Boardwalk leaving us? Will there be another series able to fill that void in your life? Five seasons is a great run by most measures so the series is by no means being “cancelled”. In fact the...
