Senator Sanders to Appear on Real Time with Bill Maher

Senator Sanders to Appear on Real Time with Bill Maher

The Bernie revolution is in full swing this political season and fans of Bill Maher’s show have known him for much longer than most of his current supporters do. He’s been on the show 11 times and very few people could have guessed how close he’d be to the White House in 2016. So when Exstreamist.com noticed that he’d be appearing on Bill Maher’s show on May 27th, we knew it would be a reunion worth watching. We wanted to be sure, because Real Time often changes guests at the last minute (especially when they’re this BIG!) so we asked the Real Time team, who confirmed it for us: @HBOWatch That's the...

HBO’s HARD KNOCKS 2016 Drops Trailer Early

HBO’s HARD KNOCKS 2016 Drops Trailer Early

Boom! Did it drop fast or what? NFL Films and HBO Sports have their eyes trained on the L. A. Rams as they prepare to cover the team’s return to the gridiron this fall. They do so with the sport series HARD KNOCKS and the hype is building up already. Does it seem as though this team is made for this series. Of course the ball club in question has a big angle to play up in the upcoming eleventh season of the series: the football franchise is returning to southern California. From 1946 to 1994 the team called Los Angeles home. Its home field was the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and later the Anaheim Stadium. Then the Rams moved to Saint...

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 4: “The Book of the Stranger”

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 4: “The Book of the Stranger”

Check out last weeks review of Episode 3 here! SO many interesting twists and turns. People die. Siblings reunite. People start taking power back. People start taking a stand. Some people stop being a victim and start being a force to reckon with. Plans are formulated. Revelations are made. Jon and Sansa reunite. I won’t lie: I cried like a baby. This is something that I, a self-professed House Stark fan, have been waiting YEARS for. It didn’t disappoint. The years have not been kind to either Stark sibling, as they reminisce over the past and that fateful day King Robert Baratheon came to ask for their father to be the Hand of the...

Silicon Valley: “Maleant Data Systems Solutions”

Silicon Valley: “Maleant Data Systems Solutions”

Check out the review for last weeks episode here! When we last left our heroes of Pied Piper, their secret Skunkworks plan failed before it even got started. When Jack called the four into his office, I was fully expecting the hammer to crash down on their heads. It started that way, but as if by some miracle, Richard found his testicles that his doctor checked for earlier in the season. He explained that if order for Jack to get what he wants, he can’t fire Richard and his team. It may have been the first time he stood up for his project that resulted in it actually sticking. Even more surprising is that throughout the episode, he...

Movie Review: Pan

Movie Review: Pan

A different take on the usual Peter Pan tale, Pan begins with Peter’s beginning and how he came to be the boy who never grew up. Featuring several amazing actors, including Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedland, Amanda Seyfried, and Rooney Mara, as well as Levi Miller as Peter, we get to see a crazy cast of characters run around looking for treasure…well, okay, not typical treasure. But it’s valuable and people kill over it, so I’m counting it as treasure. The cinematography for me was interesting, but also startling.  In the beginning, we see Peter’s mother (Amanda Seyfried) running through the streets. It had a very...

Silicon Valley: “Meinertzhagen’s Haversack”

Silicon Valley: “Meinertzhagen’s Haversack”

At the beginning of the season, it appeared that the bonds that held together the main cast may become more, and more tenuous. As Pied Piper grows there is less and less of a reason for the characters to stick together, Erlich especially seemed to have his days numbered. Last Sunday’s episode managed to recreate a bond between its cast, as they are all unhappy with the development of “The Box”, and are doing whatever they can to change the direction of the company.   “I pitched it as an example of what not to do” The episode begins within a maze of servers, as you discovered exactly what will be required to allow Pied...

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 3: “Oathbreaker”

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 3: “Oathbreaker”

I was unable to watch the previous episode right away, by a whole two days. Hey, thanks Facebook for wrecking a resurrection for me. I had Jon Snow’s zombie-like moment cruelly pulled from my grasp. So I was left waiting the entire episode just to see him gasp.  I wouldn’t believe that such a revelation would be spoiled so quickly, but such is life. How dare I go on Facebook!  But I digress, this is about a whole new episode. Jon tries to bring cohesion to the group after his slaughter which isn’t so easy after his near death-actually dead-experience.  I think I like Jon as a zombie.  I mean, he has the credit of being...

HBO Documentary Films: CLAUDE LANZMANN: SPECTRES OF THE SHOAH

Overview: In 1973, Claude Lanzmann began work on a documentary about the murder of European Jews during WWII.

The film features intense conversations in which he speaks candidly about his life experiences, focusing on the making of his magnum opus, an ordeal that changed him forever. Expectations: I have watched...

Jon Stewart May Show Up on HBO by Election Night…Or Not

Jon Stewart May Show Up on HBO by Election Night…Or Not

Yeah, you read that right. We are keeping our eye out and counting the days until Jon Stewart delivers his brand of observation on HBO and by Fall of this year would be just great. Now there is not a lot to this story, in fact that is one reason why we didn’t drop it right away. In an interview for the Paley Media Council HBO CEO Richard Plepler was asked by CNN ’s Brian Stelter, if we could expect to see Stewart by Election Night 2016 on HBO. The network CEO’s simple response was “Yeah, I’m hopeful.” That is it. Not much to write about there really. We decided to hold back on reporting on this, like so many did, because we were...
