Apr 1, 2014

A Bit About DOLL & EM

A Bit About DOLL & EM

We are going to get the taste for a new comedy in March. It is the paring of two chicks that go by the names of Doll and Em. The show kicks off with a six-episode run on Wednesday, March 19 at 10:00pm. We have already got a look at the British version of the show with this entry, but now we can offer a tease from HBO’s take on the ladies adventures.  It stars Emily Mortimer (THE NEWROOM) and Dolly Wells (HBO Films: THE GATHERING STORM). Here is the clip.    Well, that seems to set up the premise nicely and also easily shows the chemistry the actors have with each other. The poorly...

Second Game of Thrones Season 4 Trailer

Second Game of Thrones Season 4 Trailer

UPDATE: HERE IT IS! HBO knows what you want and they’re going to give it to you tonight between 8:45PM and 8:59PM. A second trailer is slated to debut tonight before episode five of True Detective. The first trailer (how could you have missed it?!) blew most people away while the 15 minute behind the scenes feature gave us a look at how the magic is made. This second trailer will most likely blow everyone away once again. The official Game of Thrones social account posted this VINE preview of the second trailer last week: We’ll post the full trailer here tonight at 9PM EST /...

HBO Gives Series Order to BALLERS

HBO Gives Series Order to BALLERS

HBO cancels a few comedies and signs on a few. We just got a go for THE BRINK and now we add the comedy BALLERS to the lineup. This one is a sports based comedy which HBO hasn’t focused on since  FIRST & TEN aired in the early days. We started tracking this show  a while ago even before it got a title, all we knew was that Dwayne Johnson was onboard. It started on 06.07.13 when we reported that Mr. J. was interested in producing and starring on a pilot he’d pitch to HBO. We announced on 11.14.13 that the pilot was officially called BALLERS where we stated then and repeat now...

Getting Back Into The VICE Mindset

Getting Back Into The VICE Mindset

Let’s get this clear this writer is always in the VICE mindset as it were. Ever since we stated reporting about VICE coming to HBO I have been visiting Vice.com and also subscribed to the Vice Channel on YouTube. I am fully aware of the raw and volatile world we live in. So this piece is to help the rest of you prepare yourself for another round of VICE in case you are not immersed in its reporting like I am. It is a mindset that may not or perhaps you should not be comfortable with. VICE will take you to the underbelly of society and to the hotspots around the world and show just how...

Movie Review: Gangster Squad

Movie Review: Gangster Squad

            I’m a sucker for the 1940s in any form. It’s a decade detached from any other point in time. When you think of World War 2, which lasted up to 1945, it’s separated in your mind from the decade in the United States because it took place on the other side of the world. The Cold War, which effectively started immediately after WW2, doesn’t usually take place in film or television until the 50s and beyond when everything got kicked into high gear and nuclear holocaust was imminent at any moment. But the 40s are in this nice little bubble containing...

Jack Black Takes HBO to THE BRINK!

Jack Black Takes HBO to THE BRINK!

HBO has given a series order to the comedy THE BRINK which will star Jack Black and Tim Robbins.  HBOWatch started looking at this work back on 10.05.13 when we announced that director Jay Roach was in a deal to develop a comedy for HBO. We then again referenced it back on 11.14.13 where we announced Jack Black and Tim Robbins were the leads cast for the pilot. 12.16.13 was the last time we mentioned it as Esai Morales was cast. It appears that HBO liked that pilot with those actors onboard as the show is now coming to the channel. Again, it is directed by Jay Roach and produced by Jerry...

HBO Documentary Film: QUESTIONING DARWIN

HBO Documentary Film: QUESTIONING DARWIN

Overview: Modern-day Creationists reject the idea that the Earth is billions of years old and that humans are descended from primates, believing instead in the literal interpretation of the Bible. Directed by Antony Thomas (HBO’s Peabody-winning FOR NEDA), this documentary takes an in-depth look at the views of those who reject Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution while chronicling Darwin’s own journey as a young man whose beliefs were changed when he experienced the world first-hand.   Narrated by Brian Protheroe, QUESTIONING DARWIN draws on Darwin’s own words, performed by Sam...

Looking Episode 4 Review: Looking for $220/hour

Looking Episode 4 Review: Looking for $220/hour

This episode examined relationships. More explicitly, what the characters Dom, Augustin and Patrick perceive what relationships should be. This is my first encounter with the HBO series “Looking” and as a heterosexual woman, I can relate to the fact that whether you are straight or gay, when you are looking for a relationship, they can be fleeting, tricky, painful or downright awkward. I had to wade few a few frogs before I finally found my Prince Charming. The men in “Looking” are probably going to go through the same motions. Patrick seems to be pretty level headed – he enjoys...

Girls Season 3, Episode 6: Free Snacks

Girls Season 3, Episode 6: Free Snacks

Another stagnant episode of Girls this week sees little development in any character other than Hannah, who now has an advertorial job at GQ magazine. On her first day she enviably becomes the star of a meeting with her superiors as she rattles ideas off them for an article while she feasts heavily on a plethora of free snacks and drinks. Hannah is a really intelligent girl and to see her use her skills in a professional environment is actually quite refreshing, rather than talking about herself, she is talking about work and it’s a side of her I can most definitely get on board...

True Detective: Sn. 1 Episode Four Review

True Detective: Sn. 1 Episode Four Review

Episode # 4 – Who Goes There. There were many underlying themes prevalent in this episode. Themes of personal relationships eroding, professional relationships becoming strained and the dangerous side to being in the line of undercover detective business were all evident. Hart is a man who is conflicted. He feels that he can have his cake and eat it too, as if nothing or nobody will shatter his world. Wake up call comes in the ugliest and yet, not surprising of ways. The ex-mistress decides to take matters into her own hands after a particularly snide and sarcastic encounter with Hart...
