Girls: “Close Up”

Feb 24, 2015

After last week’s rather sombre and emotion fuelled episode I had a horrible dread in the pit of my stomach that this week we would see Hannah spiralling into a depressive state with her...

HBO Go Enhancements are Coming in Time for Game of Thrones

HBO Go Enhancements are Coming in Time for Game of Thrones

Reports that look to be legitimate have been making the rounds in recent days. You can interpret them yourself if you so choose but the headline you’re probably most interested in is this: HBO is hoping to get their a la carte HBOGo subscription-without-cable plan out to the public in time for the launch of Game of Thrones season 5.  While no air date has been announced, based on past season premiere dates we’re placing that window around the beginning of April 2015. HBO Go is a mostly stable program, despite some reports to the contrary. On any given day the servers are humming like a river through the river-lands. But on big...

GETTING ON: “The Revolving Door Admit”

GETTING ON: “The Revolving Door Admit”

Before we launch into this episode we need to make our way past the preview for it which you can find at the Episode #4 posting. There seems to be a lot in the mix for the fifth installment. As we continue the theme set by this episode’s title we discover that there really appears to be a continual revolving door of problems and personalities as we ramp up to the season’s end.  This show sticks to a formula  that works when it comes to its story structure  so why change it.   Episode # 5- “The Revolving Door Admit” This is an episode filled with a number of threads and moments that you needed to pay attention to or...

The Twelve Days of a Game of Thrones Christmas: A Song

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me A throne that was very bloody. On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Two twins in sin And a throne that was very bloody. On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me Three dragon eggs, Two twins in sin And a throne that was very bloody.

THE LEFTOVERS Season Two – Some of the Cast Departs!

THE LEFTOVERS Season Two – Some of the Cast Departs!

One of the reporters for from one of our top sources, Deadline.com, snagged some inside scoop on the second season of THE LEFTOVERS. It could either be good news or bad news depending on what you think of the Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta produced series that ran on HBO this past summer. It is reported that “a large portion of the fourteen regular cast members in Season 1 – virtually all in the supporting roles  – won’t be returning in Season 2.” Okay, so the post title above may be accurate, but a bit sensationalistic. If you think about it all it shouldn’t be a big shock that some of the cast would not be returning....

HBO Documentary Development Slate: Scientology; Cobain & More

This writer was trying to hold out for a press release regarding the line-up of documentaries forthcoming through the winter before announcing any such news. We have yet to receive any such notice. However, some news as of late has dropped about some big documentary films ahead in 2015 that we were eager to share. We will address any further news on the documentary front, but for now here is what is shaping up.  HBO Announces A Comprehensive Scientology DocumentaryJohn Travolta, Tom Cruise, Kirstie Allen, Greta Van Susteren, Nancy Cartwright, Jenna Elfman, Juliette Lewis, Beck, Anne Archer, Catherine Bell, Danny Masterson, Bijou...

Movie Review: Grudge Match

Movie Review: Grudge Match

There’s a weird soullessness to taking nostalgia-driven properties and repackaging them as cheap, easily consumed products. Take Grudge Match, a movie ostensibly about two retired boxers who left the ring on shaky ground with each other brought back for a cash-in on what’s left of their feud, but actually stars Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro. Rocky and Raging Bull. It’s Rocky and Raging Bull people. Alien vs. Predator but with old guys. The movie has this self-aware cynicism throughout, like the people who made it understood it was a cheap cash-in from the start. Sylvester Stallone plays Henry “Razor”...

LOOKING Season 2 Trailer: The Boys are Back!

LOOKING Season 2 Trailer: The Boys are Back!

It’s official: The new full-length trailer for season 2 of Looking has finally dropped! As expected, the boys are looking as steamy yet conflicted as ever. The trailer reintroduces us to Patrick, Dom, and Agustin on a weekend getaway at a cabin in the woods—where, of course, Doris happens to drop by to crash the party. The fun ensues as it always does—with dancing, drugs, witty banter, and a ton of laughter. The trio (okay, plus Doris) finally seem be figuring their lives out. Patrick and Richie’s friendship is surprisingly working out quite well, and the two even discuss their separate love lives—a major shift from their...

Game of Thrones – Iron From Ice: Impressions

Game of Thrones – Iron From Ice: Impressions

It’s not every day that you see a game review on HBO Watch, but it’s not every day that a game comes out based on a HBO show. Telltale Games just released the first episode of their six episode series based off Game of Thrones. Don’t worry, ladies and gentlemen, this review is spoiler-free. Telltale Games develops adventure games in a market dominated by First Person Shooters and Massive Multiplayer Online games so if anyone can figure out a way to adapt the HBO franchise to a video game, they stand the best shot. They are best known for titles like Monkey Island and Sam and Max. Fans of AMC’s Walking Dead have claimed that they...

The Diary of Cersei

The Diary of Cersei

Editor’s Note: The following is an experiment to see if you think fan fiction belongs on HBOWatch. Let us know what you think as we invite you to turn the pages of this old diary.    After a long ride home, you go straight to your bedchamber. You pull out the small book with leather bindings that you bought from a smallfolk boy in King’s Landing for a silver stag. Taking a glimpse inside, you knew that it is no ordinary book. It is worth far more than what you paid. In fine cursive writing Cersei Lannister is written on the inside cover. You pull out the loose pages and begin to read:   Cersei Lannister, First of Her...

The Newsroom: “Contempt”

The Newsroom: “Contempt”

  A wedding, an arrest, budding romance, pranks, a corporate acquisition and Charlie Skinner at his finest. Viewers were treated to all of this in what was arguably one of the best episodes of the Newsroom yet. This episode picked up right where the last left off, with a subpoena in Will’s hands. While it was nice to hear the team try to predict the future, it was a welcome change to hear Mack tell Will to stop acting calm since he has been wrong about everything thus far. In many ways, it seemed like she was echoing many viewers sentiments about him not letting his ego get in the way of making good decisions. We did get a rare peak...
