In fact, the outfit is getting its own network this year when the History Channel station known as H2 becomes the VICEland network. Whoa! But, of course, VICE & HBO have a deal going that we have posted about often. It was speculated by HBOWatch not long ago that VICE would make its presence early in 2016.

Talking HBO’s HARD KNOCKS 2016 Already

Talking HBO’s HARD KNOCKS 2016 Already

That is correct, we now can begin to speculate on just which team, out of a guaranteed list of nine are eligible for inclusion this August to appear on HARD KNOCKS, the show no one want the lead role in. Remember a team that has either appeared on HARD KNOCKS already, made it into a Playoff game in the last two years or is under new coaching that year is safe from the invasion of cameras and the scrutiny of all during Training Camp prior to the 2016 season of play. Straight from Reddit.com we have the teams under the gun. Keep in mind any one of these teams can volunteer to be the focus, as the Atlanta Falcons did in 2014, or be chosen, as...

VINYL: Key Art, Trailer #2 and Mick Jagger Quotes

How many of you knew that Mick Jagger came up with the concept for the upcoming series VINYL? According to our  main source, Rolling Stone, the magazine not his bandmates, he pictured it as an epic movie that would chart the history of the music business over several decades. And thus, the series we will see debut on February 14, was conceptualized by none other than one of the seminal musical artists of the day.  Luckily Jagger had a top-notch director he would pitch his spiel to in Martin Scorsese. The director is no stranger to the music scene as he has filmed such icons as The Band and Bob Dylan and, as luck would have it, The Rolling...

Our Thoughts on THE KNICK Season Three

Our Thoughts on THE KNICK Season Three

This speculation of what could come ahead in a third season of Cinemax’s smash hit was prompted by two reports from Variety.  Information comes via an interview with Clive Owen and secondly of reports of an outline in the works. Exactly how it could all unfold with one crucial character seemingly deceased is a mystery. But, then so is John Snow!   First, is a portion of Owen’s interview: Just to get the elephant out of the room, is the last we’ve seen of you as Dr. Thackery? It certainly looks that way.   Did you and Steven talk at the beginning of the season about your fate? Was this pre-conceived or did you just get...

Movie Review: The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Movie Review: The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

It’s hard to look at a movie like The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, as anything but an advertisement brought to you by the Department of Indian Tourism. Come to India in your twilight years, a land of rich culture, parties, make friends, and don’t forget to spend all of your money! And even still, it’s hard for this movie to not get under your skin in the nicest possible way. The cast is full of charming, friendly faces, the plot is breezy, and every location tends to scream out “Look at me! Don’t you want to see me in real life? Plan your trip now!” This movie works on every conceptual level it...

HBO Documentary Development Slate: Boston, Ebola, Nichols & More

We have just about heard from every aspect of HBO going forward into 2016 except what the plan is for HBO Documentary Films. Usually by now Shelia Nevins and her department drop an announcement stating the documentaries to premiere for the first half of the year and if there is any special programming notes relating. So far we haven’t heard a word. We will assume, unless told otherwise, that Monday night will remain documentary night with premieres at 9:00pm. Encore presentations will round out the schedule. What HBOWatch can give those interested is an outline of those films we know to be in the pipeline. What we have below is our best...
