Veep Season 3 Premires April 6th

Veep Season 3 Premires April 6th

She’s baaaaaaaack! Everyone’s favorite, if somewhat useless Vice President of the United States is back for another season and we now know the final air date: April 6th!  Debuting alongside Game of Thrones on the same night we expect a lot of the audience to carry over or some more lighthearted than that found in Westeros. We have no idea what the new season will bring to the table but we’re sure it will freakishly mimic the real world with Julia and the cast’s normal grace and sophistication… or something like that. Did the President call?  Nope.  But you do...

Movie Review: The Place Beyond the Pines

Movie Review: The Place Beyond the Pines

Despite an ensemble cast of impossibly attractive people including Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes, Bradley Cooper and a title that implies a sense of gentle longing like “The Place Beyond the Pines” does, this isn’t a movie you should be suggesting for your next Saturday date night. Unless of course the both of you are into violence, corruption, and an overall feeling of bleakness. “Drive”, for its moments of ultra violence at least had more scenes of happy romance between Gosling’s driver and Carey Mulligan’s waitress-mother, Irene. At a glance you could...

“Which item of clothing would you like me to remove?” Lena Dunham on Letterman

“Which item of clothing would you like me to remove?” Lena Dunham on Letterman

I could listen to Lena Dunham talk for hours, in this case her interview on Letterman was enough to satisfy until the premier of season three of GIRLS on Sunday night. A self proclaimed lover of celebrity culture and celebrity figures, she discusses awards ceremonies. A lot of people will be expecting her to say that she hates them, that they are a popularity contest full of politics and have become a sadistic way to make great actors feel terrible about themselves but in fact she loves them. Why wouldn’t you? The glitz, the glamour, being surrounded by the world greatest actors and being...

Alexander Skarsgard Naked Again

Alexander Skarsgard Naked Again

Mr. Skarsgard decided to recreate his famous scene from the end of Season Six of TRUE BLOOD! I know it looks like it could have been shot somewhere in this country as of late, but it actually is a picture taken at the South Pole of all places. Here is the proper credit that must be bestowed on the NY Daily News. Thanks for getting this Instagram picture out there. Enjoy it...

HBO Documentary Film: THE EDUCATION OF MOHAMMAD HUSSEIN

HBO Documentary Film: THE EDUCATION OF MOHAMMAD HUSSEIN

Overview: THE EDUCATION OF MOHAMMAD HUSSEIN takes a look at a tightly knit Muslim community in the economically depressed Detroit-Hamtramck neighborhood, focusing on the children who attend a traditional Islamic school.  The film captures a year where the kids and their neighborhood have an unwelcome visitor, notorious Koran-burning Florida preacher Terry Jones, who arrives to provoke them with hateful rhetoric and anti-Muslim demonstrations.  The community’s reaction to this challenge lies at the heart of the film, which gives a quietly searing view of a post-9/11 America that is...

What’s Next For HBO’s David Simon? (Part II)

What’s Next For HBO’s David Simon? (Part II)

We here at HBOWatch have been wondering what is next for David Simon because, well damn it, some of us appreciate his work in such shows as the acclaimed THE WIRE, which was the acclaimed follow-up to THE CORNER, the mini-series GENERATION KILL and the recently concluded TREME. In fact, not too long ago (this post in from November actually) this very site ruminated on the puzzle of just what could be next from him. Since that post and the airing of the series finale of TREME Mr. Simon has been doing interviews that talk about his body of work, his writing style, his place in the TV landscape...

True Detective: You’re Creeping Us Out, HBO!

True Detective: You’re Creeping Us Out, HBO!

It’s a crisp winter morning as I’m startled by the ringing of my doorbell at such an early hour.  My loyal dog begins to bark as I move to assure him that everything’s okay… or at least I hope it is.  I make my way to the door as I hear the sound of a large truck driving away.  It’s just FedEx.  A sigh of relief.   I creak open the door and look down at the largest box I’ve received in recent memory.  A late Christmas gift, perhaps?  Did my wife order something from Nordstom again?  I bring the box into the house and open it without second thought....

The 8 NFL Teams that Could Appear on HBO’s Hard Knocks in 2014

As many Americans are either squealing or reeling from this weekend’s Wild Card playoff weekend’s results there are a many out there without a team in the race for the Lombardi trophy this year.  So we’ve got a bit of info that might pique the interest of those fans who are already done with the NFL this year and are looking towards the future. Last fall a plurality of NFL owners agreed that, for the good of the game, one team WILL be made available for HBO’s cameras on their hit show: Hard Knocks starting in 2014.  Each year teams scramble to avoid the cameras as...
