HBO let slip the dogs of war this afternoon when they launched a full-frontal assault via social media in anticipation of Game of Thrones season 4.  Via sites such as IGN, Entertainment Weekly and YahooTV we were treated to a collection of Game of Thrones teaser posters as well as these three mini trailers.  I’m guessing 98% of you aren’t reading this anyway so I’ll get to the goods: Stark: Tyrion: Essos: Oh and they also let loose these badass posters which we gathered and put into a Facebook album for your browsing pleasure.  Click on one and then just keep clicking...

HBO Documentary Films: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

HBO Documentary Films: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

Overview: Runway model Sandra Bush dreamed of becoming the first African-American supermodel, only to struggle with addiction and despair. But she later achieved celebrity as Mama Bush, the model for some of the best-known and widely admired paintings by her daughter, acclaimed artist Mickalene Thomas. Inspired by her mother’s years of struggle, Thomas asked Bush to pose for a series of sexy, suggestive portraits evocative of ’70s pop culture. The photographs served as the basis for some of Thomas’ most acclaimed paintings and Bush became a muse to her daughter.  Drawing on personal...

Lena Dunham to Host SNL on March 8th

Lena Dunham to Host SNL on March 8th

HBO’s youngest starlet will host one of television’s most prolific comedy sketch programs: Saturday Night Live!  NBC made the announcement this morning that Lena Dunham will hose SNL for the first time on Match 8th. Dunham responded with a (you guessed it) tweet on the matter saying: Thank you for the SNL love. Dream come true. Can’t wait to debut my character “girl who googled serial killers all night & has lots to say”! — Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) February 25, 2014 And SNL: Excited to announce @lenadunham will make her #SNL hosting debut next week...

Girls Season 3: Episode 8 – “Incidentals”

Girls Season 3: Episode 8 – “Incidentals”

Episode 8 brings Hannah and the girls, all of whom seem to have moved on from last week’s beach house debacle, back to NYC and back to “real life.” (Or as close to “real life” as the girls of Girls are every going to get.) After the beach house drama, I was a bit concerned that we’d see the Girls go their separate ways, but as it turns out, the gang is still together and, of course, still as awkward, confused and dysfunctional as ever. There are big doings ahead for Adam, as he’s finally landed a role in a Broadway production. At the callback for...

Invitation to the Set: Veep Season 3

Invitation to the Set: Veep Season 3

HBO periodically puts out these behind the scenes videos for each of their series as they approach air time.  Veep season 3 is set to premiere in April alongside Game of Thrones.  We’ve already seen one trailer for the series thus far but that didn’t give us much!  This one gives us a lot more with a focus on the storyline this season and quotes from all of your favorite comedic players.   Here it is: Spoiler Alert! Not sure if people really care about spoilers for a light-hearted show like this but I suppose we should have warned you (leave your angry comments below). It...

The Fall and Rise of Rome

The Fall and Rise of Rome

The Fall and Rise of ROME? HBO is littered with wonderful, brilliant, and engaging shows that were cancelled before their time. Production costs, controversies, and countless other factors resulted in shows like Carnivàle, Life’s Too Short, Luck, and Deadwood to be lost to the annals of time (and the wondrous bounty of HBOGO and DVD). But few shows have left the gaping, sucking chest wound of sorrow created by the cancellation of ROME. In the 7 years since the series ended, HBO has worked tirelessly to replace the dramatic epic. Of course we have Game of Thrones, and no one is...

Is HBO Adapting Sci-Fi Series, Beasts of Valhalla Starring Peter Dinklage?

Are you ready for some great news, science fiction fans?  We’ve been clamouring for a sci-fi series on HBO for years now and this latest news may be the answer we’ve all been waiting for.  An australian publication recently caught up with Justin Monjo, a writer whose work includes episodes of the series Farscape.  He’s in what appears to be the very early stages of pitching a Beasts of Valhalla sci-fi series to HBO along with Ben Stiller’s Red Hour productions (Zoolander, Dodgeball, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty).   What is Beasts of Valhalla, you ask?...

Movie Review: Now You See Me

Movie Review: Now You See Me

Louis Leterrier’s Now You See Me is a comedic thriller following the mystical escapades of four undeniably brilliant undiscovered street magicians as they are sucked into a dark and dangerous scheme at the hands of an unknown entity. The Four Horseman, as they are known consist of J. Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg) Merritt McKinney (Woody Harrelson) Henley Reeves (Isla Fisher) and Jack Wilder (Dave Franco) who are all brought together by an unknown hoodied person who attends each of their incredibly impressive shows and secretly offers them a tarot card with instructions offering the...

Looking Episode 5 Review: “Looking For The Future”

Looking Episode 5 Review: “Looking For The Future”

In this episode, we find that Patrick is still seeking a relationship. He is now in the company of Richie, the guy he was dancing with at the club, during the previous episode. After quietly leaving Richie’s room, taking a shower and going through his medicine cabinet, Patrick decides to call in a sick day at work. Let’s just say that he was persuaded to do so and I’ll leave it at that. The whole episode is like one long, drawn out date. Richie and Patrick begin to talk to each other. It’s amazing what people will find out when they actually communicate their feelings, hopes, dreams...

Girls Season 3, Episode 7: Beach House

Girls Season 3, Episode 7: Beach House

Just when I was starting to mildly panic that this season of Girls was going to fail my ludicrously high expectations, an episode like Beach House goes and reaffirms my faith that Lena Dunham is the soul mate of every twenty something girl on the planet. The beach house of Beach House should otherwise be known as the honesty house as Marnie invites her three BFF’s to come for the weekend and resolve their differences, thus healing broken, distant friendships with each other. Of course, it all makes sense now, the last three episodes have had such distance on purpose, to make us feel as...

Development Slate: UTOPIA; SWAMPLANDIA; David Spade & More

It is time for another look at what HBO has up on the Development Slate. The pay channel is working hard to find the right programming that will make a critical and lasting impression to viewers if the content makes it to the screen. We have no way of knowing if any of the projects referenced here will make it to air but some do look pretty interesting. Let’s get to it!    David Fincher offers UTOPIA to HBO David Fincher, the man behind movies like The Social Network and Netflix‘s award-winning House of Cards, brings his next small screen venture to HBO. That should have some...

Getting On Season 2 Confirmed!

Getting On Season 2 Confirmed!

The quirky, unique, often hilarious comedy Getting On will be renewed by HBO.  We’d heard rumblings that the second season was a go but we have reached out to HBO and can now confirm with %100 certainty. Three comedies premiered for the first time last year on the Home Box Office network including Family Tree, Hello Ladies and Getting On.  Two of those three have been cancelled permanently without receiving a sophomore season.  Fans and even the show creator was fearful that HBO wouldn’t see the value proposition in continuing the series. Two of the show’s brightest...

Getting Into the VICE (Season 2) Mindset II

Getting Into the VICE (Season 2) Mindset II

VICE on HBO has released two more videos as its ramps up for Season Two. Man, VICE just likes to punch us in the face with the hardcore, doesn’t it? Well, so does this HBOWatch writer. I’m excited about the sophomore run of the show and I’m going to be in your face about it. That is the reason for this post and the continued look at the promos gearing up to the season’s premiere on 03.14.14 and through each episode weekly. With the first video Shane Smith and company want to remind us of how VICE has amped up the intensity and reporting for the new season. Some of the new...
