VICE NEWS on HBO Announces Showrunner

VICE NEWS on HBO Announces Showrunner

His technical title is – executive vice president content & news. and it will be his responsibility to get the high profile big stories that HBO would hope to see and package the show just right for the HBO audience. Tyrangiel (pictured) is quoted as saying – “I have a lot of confidence in getting significant actors on the global stage. I love business, politics, science, even entertainment news. What I really like are complicated stories, versus hitting people over the head with a...

The Leftovers: “Off Ramp”

The Leftovers: “Off Ramp”

When I think of what an off ramp is, it’s a turn off point from a highway – an exit of sorts; you either take one to get to where you need to go to or you keep on driving down the highway. Or, if you make a wrong turn, you can always exit off of the off ramp and get back to your correct destination. Or does it mean that when something is ‘off ramp’ – it’s kind of like saying it’s ‘off kilter’ – meaning that something is not right and could later on spell disaster for everyone else? Speaking of driving, guess who we are reunited with? Laurie and Tommy Garvey. And boy, oh boy, does this episode not disappoint. There’s a...

G. R. R. Martin Developing SKIN TRADE for Cinemax

G. R. R. Martin Developing SKIN TRADE for Cinemax

Man, this guy cannot be a fan of book purists right now. George R. R Martin seems to be doing anything he can besides write the next A Song of Ice and Fire book. Now he is in cahoots with Cinemax to develop his 1989 work SKIN TRADE. He will an executive producer of the story termed as werewolf noir and that would clearly occupy some of his time, especially if the concept goes to series. THE SKIN TRADE is actually a short story that was found in a horror fiction collection entitled Night Visions. It later became part of a Martin collection entitled DreamSongs II and as a trade paperback and graphic novel of its own. The cover art for that...

Just A Reminder – AMY SCHUMER LIVE AT THE APOLLO Is Airing on HBO

Just A Reminder –  AMY SCHUMER LIVE AT THE APOLLO Is Airing on HBO

I think it is really difficult to review a stand-up comedy routine. Everyone’s taste in what is funny and what is not is is unique. I might go off on declaring the gig by this big popular comedienne as the best thing going, but if you found her too offensive it just wouldn’t matter what I said. Hell, if you think she’s too vulgar then you wouldn’t last too long at this special anyway. She is quite comfortable in being raunchy. Some critics also have been slinging accusations as of late that she is out and out racist. Of course, her act is cleaned up, at least in that regard, for this HBO Special. What, you say? Cleaned up for HBO?...

The Knick Season Two Premiere: “Ten Knots”

The Knick Season Two Premiere: “Ten Knots”

Are you ready to embark on another season of Cinemax’s THE KNICK? We sure are and the cast and crew were eager to get it to us. Looking at Season Two’s first episode, many surprises were evident in this premiere: some good, others catastrophic. The good news is that Algernon is keeping steadfast and holding down the fort while John continues his drug induced and slightly paranoid stint of ‘rehab.’ Cleary has invested in an electric car as the official ambulance for transporting patients to the Knick; Cornelia is helping immigrants get food in San Francisco; Eleanor Gallinger is getting new teeth implanted and Algernon has...

THE LEFTOVERS: “A Matter of Geography”

THE LEFTOVERS: “A Matter of Geography”

Sorry to get this to you so late, but it has been one of those stressful weeks. It is not quite as bad as  what Kevin Garvey has been going through, but enough to throw things askew. Anyway, so much happens in this second episode that it is difficult to lay it all out here. Hopefully, I shouldn’t have to because you have been hanging on to every scene as it has unspooled before your eyes. Luckily this is not a scene-by-scene recap but a look at highlights and major themes and revelations contained in the episode. First, I am a stickler for titles. Why is the episode named what it is? The words ‘a matter of geography’ were stated in...

Are the WATCHMEN Coming To HBO?

Are the WATCHMEN Coming To HBO?

This writer is of the opinion that the whole Superhero genre has reached its saturation point, but then again I’m not a ‘geek.’ I was quite content with HBO setting itself above the rest and not going that route. Now, however, it appears the pay cabler is considering the realm of spandex clad do-gooders with an array of super abilities saving the world from evil. HBO is in preliminary talks with Zack Snyder, who directed the 2009 movie Watchmen, to explore whether the concept is doable for the network. In a brief statement HBO stated – “Preliminary discussions regarding Watchmen have occurred but we have no additional...

Movie Review: Taken 3

Movie Review: Taken 3

Note: Spoilers ahead. When the first Taken film arrived on the scene, it presented a curious and interesting premise: what if an action movie could be led by an Academy Award-nominated actor with the gravitas of Liam Neeson? Taken presented us with a more weathered type of hero, one with close familial ties, and a soft spot for his beloved daughter, whom he couldn’t quite understand. Was the premise perfect? No, far from it. For starters, it infantilized said daughter, who was the focal point of Bryan’s search. It also presented some improbable circumstances surrounding the rescue. Nevertheless, Taken got by on charm, and on the...

The WESTWORLD Sex Scandal

The WESTWORLD Sex Scandal

We were almost going to let this news item slip by until we realized that old news about WESTWORLD is better than no news at all. So, we revisit the reports from a week ago to give you the following information about the highly anticipated futuristic series coming in 2016. If you don’t know what I am referring to than catch up here. It seems a casting report went out for background actors for the Michael Crichton adaptation that created quite a stir. A circulated Consent Agreement went out that stated the following: “This document serves to inform you that this project will require you to be fully nude and/or witness others fully nude...

Dunham’s Feminism Comedy MAX Gets A Pilot

Dunham’s Feminism Comedy MAX Gets A Pilot

This writer does not keep close tabs on anything Lena Dunham does, but I thought she was working on, in addition to GIRLS, a concept called ALL DRESSED UP AND EVERYWHERE TO GO. Now, it seems another comedy idea as surfaced and it recently got a pilot order. I honestly never perceived Dunham as a feminist but evidently that is a message she wants to make clear with a work titled MAX. MAX is a single-camera comedy described as a raucous comedy set in 1963 about the struggles of second wave feminism, centered on an ambitious magazine writer named Maxine Woodruff looking for liberation. Maxine is an enthusiastic, if misguided, low-level...

One Fan’s Hope for Season Two of Cinemax’s THE KNICK

One Fan’s Hope for Season Two of Cinemax’s THE KNICK

What goes up must come down. You could say this old adage applies to Dr. John Thackery, our beleaguered hero, from Season One. This man was polished, possessed a cunning wit and sharp intelligence; he had an eye for the latest medical technology and knew how to rub shoulders with New York’s elite. A handsome doctor with some serious swag, John knew just how far he could push his patients and his medical procedures. He had a dark past; one that included a former girlfriend (in which he had to operate on her nose by doing a risky skin graft to repair her face) and he also recognized his medical equal in others, most notably (and perhaps a...

GETTING ON’s Final Season Debuts 11.08.15 (Updated with Trailer)

Update: No sooner do we get you updated about the upcoming season and the trailer drops. So here it is. It looks like another great season. Shame it is the last one.
