The Night Of: “Part IV: The Art of War” Review

The Night Of: “Part IV: The Art of War” Review

With this episode, the limited series The Night Of has now reached the half way point. What so far do we have to show for it? A young kid learning the ropes of being in jail/prison. An attorney and prosecutor duke it out over sentencing to help the criminal justice system from the stress of another trial. And the young girl who was murdered had a more troubled past than realized. First a recap: And now our thoughts on  – Part IV: The Art of War CALVIN: What you gotta do now is start walking like a man not afraid to look a man in the eye; but don’t ever look him in the eye, you’ll regret that.   The advice is given to Naz...

The Game of Thrones Cast That Could Have Been

The Game of Thrones Cast That Could Have Been

Another whirlwind Season of Game of Thrones has passed and many of us are still in the process of digesting all of the twists and turns of Season six whilst holding out for any news on the later than scheduled Season seven. It may be a while until we receive any concrete news about the final two Seasons, but in the meantime here is some Game of Thrones insight of a different kind. The extensive casting has been overseen by casting director Nina Gold, who has an abundance of experience in her role, from casting shows such as HBO’s Rome to blockbuster films such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, making Nina Gold one of the most...

Vice Principals: “The Field Trip”

Vice Principals: “The Field Trip”

This weeks episode of Vice Principals was a refreshing change from trash talking Prinicpal Brown and focused more on Neal Gamby and the objects of his desire; success and Miss Snodgrass. The vulgar, sharp tongued Lee Russell only featured in the opening scene of the episode but it felt like they tried to cram as much distasteful and uncomfortable language as possible as they watched Principal Brown park her car and approach the school. Baring in mind that her house was burned to the ground (by Gamby and Russell I might add) it would be excuseable for her not to entirely be herself. Russell and Gamby discuss in a wholly disrespectful way her...

HBO’s New Sarah Jessica Parker Dramedy Premiere Date: October 9th

HBO’s New Sarah Jessica Parker Dramedy Premiere Date: October 9th

It’s been more than 12 years since Sex and the City aired and those of us who are fans feel like it was only yesterday Sarah Jessica Parker was on HBO’s air. She’d probably be a little annoyed by everyone comparing her new show, Divorce to SatC all the time but that just comes with the territory and HBO Watch will likely do the same. Those are the fans HBO is inviting to watch Divorce and they’d be ecstatic to have even a third of them show up to give it a shot. Will they or won’t they? Sometimes, in life, as in fiction, you have to wait to find out. Here’s the press release on the official premiere date...

Westworld Premiere Date: October 2nd

Westworld Premiere Date: October 2nd

Below is the official press release for HBO’s Westworld series. We’ve been reporting on this epic for almost two years now and every step of the way we’ve been excited. Today is a landmark because we finally have a premiere date! Mark your digital or physical calendars, robot lovers because this show is being hailed as HBO’s next Game of Thrones. Okay, we’ll believe that when we see it but maybe it will at least be HBO’s next True Blood. Either way the Home Box Office needs a hit and even the biggest skeptic would admit this show has all the makings. Here we go!  Glad to be on this journey into the...

HBO’s BALLERS Already Gets A Season Three

HBO’s BALLERS Already Gets A Season Three

BALLERS must be doing something right. We have not seen any numbers yet, nor do we hold much interest in them, but BALLERS Season 2 must have had a heck of a turnout for the debut of its sophomore season.

Game of Thrones Season 7 Production Teaser Trailer

Game of Thrones Season 7 Production Teaser Trailer

Game of Thrones Season Six is over, and it looks like Season Seven won’t be out until later than usual next year, but HBO is doing their best to make sure that fans don’t lose interest in the popular fantasy series. Comic-Con has come and gone, and with it came a Game of Thrones panel which has become a staple at the event. In addition to an in-depth question and answer segment with cast-members, the panel also featured two short videos. The first video allows us one more chance to look back on Season Six, show-casing bloopers  from that year’s filming (notably, Peter Dinklage struggles to pronounce the word...

George R.R. Martin: Lady Stoneheart Was Cut

George R.R. Martin: Lady Stoneheart Was Cut

Season Six of Game of Thrones has been full of surprising re-appearances, reunifications, and resurrections, and even as the show begins to gear up for its finale, it doesn’t seem to be slowing down. With the latest episode bringing back Benjen Stark, a character whose fate has been in question since the first season of the show, fans who have been waiting since since Season Four for the introduction of the mysterious Lady Stoneheart were not ready to give up hope. Sadly, it seems that George R.R. Martin, author of A Song of Ice and Fire, the series upon which HBO’s extremely successful show is based, has provided a...

Ian McShane is Ready for More DEADWOOD

Ian McShane is Ready for More DEADWOOD

We have all kind of done our on style of begging and wishing over David Milch’s DEADWOOD to return after hastily being taken off the air after its 2006 season. Here it is almost ten years later (its last episode aired 08.27.06) and we are still waiting for anything, a big screen movie, a TV movie, a limited series to continue the story that ended too soon. Ideally, of course, we want all the original players to return. Even though they have successfully moved on we would still what the likes of Timothy Olyphant, Powers Boothe, John Hawkes, Molly Parker, Kim Dickens, Paula Malcomson and all the rest to return. And the show certainly would...

Vice Principals: “A Trusty Steed”

Vice Principals: “A Trusty Steed”

This week’s episode of Vice Principals took us down a strange road that just had me questioning what the point of all this is. The episode was entertaining enough and pretty hilarious in parts too but what I am struggling with is what this show is actually about. Is it about two men trying to overthrow their female leader or is it about something much more sinister? The latter I think is the more likely of the two and the premise of the two men battling for the position of Principal was merely a vessel to entertain and entice Eastbound and Down fans. This weeks episode addressed some pretty interesting issues and then Danny McBride...

The Night Of: “Part III: A Dark Crate” Review

The Night Of: “Part III: A Dark Crate” Review

The thrilling noir scrutinization of the criminal justice system has so far swept audiences into its grasps with its first two episodes. This streak continues with the third episode this week. Previously on the show, Naz had been in the precinct jail, but now he is on to a bigger and badder location, Riker’s Island. What will be in store as he finds himself truly locked up with the bad guys? We are about to find out, but first a quick recap: And now our thoughts on – Part III: A Dark Crate As word of his notoriety spreads across Rikers, Naz quickly learns that the key to his survival–or perhaps his demise–may rest...

What’s On: HBO Schedule for August 2016

We don’t know about you, but we think July on HBO has held up pretty good. We are certainly still glued to Sunday nights. Good ratings and critically acclaimed content makes us happy watchers. Of course, the Sunday shows carry over into August so we will look at them and a number of additional programs to get our attention when the oppressive heat drives us indoors towards HBO’s channels and streaming sites. Here is a look at what’s on.    Original Series: You cannot fool us. We know you have got to be watching THE NIGHT OF, created by Steven Zaillian and Richard Price. By August’s start we will be halfway through the gripping...

The Leftovers: HBO’s Forgotten Show

The nominations for the 2016 and 68th Primetime Emmy Awards® are out, and once again HBO boasts a mightily impressive number of nominations with 94, more than any other network. As anticipated, the nominations list includes HBO favorites and award winning shows such as Game of Thrones, Veep and Silicon Valley. Whilst HBO’s dominance is a cause for celebration, there are some notable omissions from the nominations list.
