Girls: “Close Up”

Feb 24, 2015

After last week’s rather sombre and emotion fuelled episode I had a horrible dread in the pit of my stomach that this week we would see Hannah spiralling into a depressive state with her...

GETTING ON Concludes After a Third Season

GETTING ON Concludes After a Third Season

There is one more season of six episodes ahead for the hospital-set comedy GETTING ON before being discharged from HBO. Or, some may say, the plug as been pulled from its life support. The show, starring Laurie Metcalf, Alex Borstein, Niecy Nash and Mel Rodriguez, never garnered big attention, but did apparently suit the needs of the network. It never was given a big marketing push or touted as a jewel in HBO’s line-up. That just confounded this writer as this was one of my favorite works on the schedule. According to statistics an averaged viewership of 1.6 million agreed with me. GETTING ON reveals the story of the Billy Barnes Unit of...

Game of Thrones: The Exhibit Opens

Game of Thrones: The Exhibit Opens

The Game of Thrones exhibit is returning for its third year this week, giving lucky European fans the chance to get up close and personal with Westeros. The exhibit, which has had enormous success in previous years, opened in London, England earlier this week, with much fanfare. It will subsequently visit countries such as Madrid, Paris, and Berlin. The exhibit offers visitors the opportunity to see the objects that make up the world of Westeros—from exquisite costumes (including Cersei and Jaime’s get-ups as well as Sansa’s dress which defined her new look in Season 4) to frighteningly convincing weaponry (notably Needle, Longclaw,...

Looking: “Looking Down the Road”

Looking: “Looking Down the Road”

  “How do you feel about going back to John after we’re together?”   This man is only going to break his heart. I swear, it’s so obvious and it’s like watching a car crash. I know what’s going to happen but can’t bring myself to look away no matter how painful I know it’s going to be. I knew almost immediately when I started this episode how it was going to end. One of the things I love the most about this show is probably the fact that the characters are so unbelievably relatable. Patrick discussing his past as “Fat-rick” and his worries about eating unhealthy food was such a resonating scene for me. The writers of...

Togetherness: “Houston We Have a Problem”

Togetherness: “Houston We Have a Problem”

  Crazy Tina and Alex go to Houston, and for what grand purpose? So she can crash at her parent’s place, basically boss Alex around the entire time, while getting drunk and acting like a sorority girl who is completely out of control. Alex, in the meantime, is steadfast and loyal – but even loyalty has it’s’ limits. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Michelle and Brett are trying – and I STRESS the trying part – to relax and have a good time while out on a date. So, Brett does something that Michelle totally doesn’t expect: he books them a hotel room, so they can be alone and uninterrupted. See that moment right...

Promo – Silicon Valley Season Two

Promo – Silicon Valley Season Two

Mike Judge, creator of the HBO series Silicon Valley, flexes his old school Office Space muscles in this new promo for the second season of Silicon Valley. Nerds and rap music combined in order to make something beautiful. Not much can be gleamed as to what direction the show will go in, but the characters remain as lively and awkward as ever. In the promo, everyone’s back in the game with Dinesh and his energy drink, Gilfoyle with his cereal, and Jared’s meticulousness all coming together to make this dysfunctional family of programmers miraculously coexist long enough to create something that will at the very least...

Girls: “Cubbies”

Girls: “Cubbies”

This episode of Girls is all about criticism and how we handle it. Each member of the Girls crew (excluding Jessa who has usual doesn’t fit in) are faced with some form of criticism. Criticism is something we face daily in our lives, and how it affects us speaks a lot to how we are as a person.   “I would like to know what’s wrong with me.” Throughout this season we have seen Shoshanna going to various interviews throughout New York. We’ve seen her nail a job interview, that it turns out she didn’t even want. So far we only have seen her utterly confident, and prideful in her success. Shoshanna begins this ...

Movie Review: Edge of Tomorrow

Movie Review: Edge of Tomorrow

Was that your first time watching Edge of Tomorrow? You probably have some questions. It’s understandable; that ending and just the whole issue of time tampering, it definitely left the audience wondering what went on exactly. Looper explained the issue with time travel in movies the best by having Bruce Willis issue the statement to not think about it or you’ll be there all day going back and forth (don’t worry, that is not a spoiler if you haven’t seen it). So let’s take that approach with this review. We aren’t going to focus on the issue of time travel and tampering. Let’s look at the movie...

Margaret Atwood Talks HBO’s MADDADDAM

Margaret Atwood Talks HBO’s MADDADDAM

There has been a lot of buzz lately about upcoming HBO projects. We still have a post detailing more of them forthcoming, but for now, we want to focus on a project we haven’t heard much about around here. It is HBO’s MADDADDAM project. It is a adaptation of a trilogy of books, as we previously reported, by Margaret Atwood.   We have been able to find some interview pieces with her as she talks about her post-apocalyptic trilogy and HBO’s take on it. Of course, she will not be able to reveal too much, but only speculate, because this outline and screenplay are in the early stages. The first bit of information comes from Vulture...

Visions of the Future: Is This the Original Outline for the Books that Inspired Game of Thrones?

Visions of the Future: Is This the Original Outline for the Books that Inspired Game of Thrones?

A love triangle between Jon, Arya, and Tyrion? Jaime becoming king of Westeros? Daenerys killing Khal Drogo? It sounds like some far-fetched fan-fiction, but each of these events are from the original outline of A Song of Ice and Fire, which shows George R.R. Martin had an extremely different story in mind when he first sat down to write what he expected to be a trilogy. An anonymous person from Waterstone Books recently released photographs of George R.R. Martin’s original three page pitch for his book series, and the outline offers interesting insights into what might have been. The story has been altered greatly since...
