A Retrospective: The Women of VINYL

A Retrospective: The Women of VINYL

Now that the dust has well and truly settled on HBO’s vibrant new drama series Vinyl it’s a good opportunity to reflect on the season and more specifically, the representation of women in the series. Despite the cast being dominated by male characters, its the three women who pull the strings and clear up the mess. They are the driving force behind the powerful men in the season and are often the cause of those men making big decisions. Terence Winter, the show’s main writer, explained in an interview with The Independent that they were conscious of being “true and faithful to the reality of how hard it was for women in...

Game of Thrones Steelbooks: Seasons 3 & 4

Game of Thrones Steelbooks: Seasons 3 & 4

You’ll often find us reviewing HBO DVD and Blu-Rays regularly and we’re excited each time we get to do so. But once in a while a set so gorgeous really grabs our attention. Enter what might be the definitive version of Game of Thrones on disc format. Yes, it has the same special features as the regular release (plus Dolby Atmos sound!) and yes, you might have already ordered the other version, but this one will look nice on anyone’s shelf. We took some photos and have all the details. We did the same with seasons one and two (which were AWESOME). Don’t need convincing? Pre-order them here. Release date is June...

Game of Thrones: “Blood of My Blood”

Game of Thrones: “Blood of My Blood”

So I think most people, the internet especially, are reeling from last week’s shocking twist. Not only that, but memes are popping up all over the place. Can’t we just mourn in peace, internet? Why must you torture us so? But since we can’t change it, after last episode we must move forward. The episode picks up almost immediately following the end of the last episode.  Meera is doing her best to protect Bran, but she can only do so much.  Heaven knows what all is happening in Bran’s head as he downloads the Three Eyed Raven’s power.  A mysterious figure appears!  I mean, I think I knew who it was from the...

What’s On: HBO Schedule For June 2016

What’s On: HBO Schedule For June 2016

Man, does the time go by fast. Here we are leading into summer already, we are halfway through the current Sunday night originals and we are barreling onward. The question lies, as the evenings get longer and nicer, what is on HBO to hold our attention in June? The answer is – a little bit of everything. We once again offer a look at most of the content that is scheduled for the month ahead. I hope you find a gem whether it is a continuing series, an old movie of even a favorite repeat. Youcan also seek out our Schedule Page. Here is What’s On in June.     Original Series: I know that many of you think that the dramatic...

Movie Review: “The Intern”

Movie Review: “The Intern”

I’ve often wondered what I would do after I retired. Granted, I’m only 27 years old so I have quite the way to go. But I question what I would do with all that unconstructed time. Travel, work with charity, spend all day reading, or learn a new language are all on my short list. But what do you do when you’ve run out of stuff to do?  The Intern takes us on the adventure of what to do with yourself when you feel that you’ve already done everything. First of all, this cast is amazing.  I mean, really.  The chemistry between Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway is phenomenal.  It borders between the paternal aspect...

HBO Solidifies Monster Fall Lineup with Westworld, Divorce, Insecure & High Maintenance

HBO Solidifies Monster Fall Lineup with Westworld, Divorce, Insecure & High Maintenance

HBO has confirmed fall debuts for the new series WESTWORLD, DIVORCE, INSECURE and HIGH MAINTENANCE. We’d been waiting for confirmation on, particuarly the monster would-be hit that is Westworld. After years of delays, it will air this fall!  Exact dates to be determined. Here’s a little on each series. The one-hour drama series WESTWORLD (ten episodes) is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged. The cast includes...

HBO Films: All the Way – Review

HBO Films: All the Way – Review

Much like Steven Spielberg’s 2012 film Lincoln, HBO’s adaptation of the Broadway hit play All the Way focuses on the role a President plays in the advancement and expansion of human rights. It is a role often caught between the tide of human progress and the regressive Old Guard. How much can one person do, given the checks in the system? What is the best approach to push forward a party’s agenda? Films like Lincoln and All the Way highlight the struggle between the radicals and the moderates within a party, often chiding the latter for their impatience and lack of tact and pragmatism. Here, the President is Lyndon Baines...

Silicon Valley: “The Empty Chair”

Silicon Valley: “The Empty Chair”

It seems that for the Pied Piper crew it is one step forward, two steps back. They are never quite able to succeed in the way they want to, however they never fail spectacularly. Many of the events the last two episodes (check out last week’s review here) have been cyclical, things we’ve seen before, which is no doubt indicative of Mike Judge’s opinion of the tech world. Things happen in the same patterns constantly, however Judge’s story manages to make the cycle seem believable, and earned. “There is no CEO” Fresh off last episode’s cliffhanger this episode begins with Richard and the crew aimlessly...

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 5: “The Door”

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 5: “The Door”

This post contains HUGE SPOILERS. If you have not seen the latest episode of Game of Thrones, look away now! If you missed last weeks review, catch up here. So far this season has felt really odd in comparison to other seasons, everything from the writing style to the violence has felt softened and adapted for wider audiences. The language has become more casual, colloquial and “modern” which is a strong step away from the bleak and dark nature of the show and makes it more comparable to our world, that said, the violence has also taken an unwanted, sharp turn towards banal. I miss the good old days of peoples heads being...

ANY GIVEN WEDNESDAY WITH BILL SIMMONS Trailer Hits

ANY GIVEN WEDNESDAY WITH BILL SIMMONS Trailer Hits

HBO is ready for Bill Simmons, are we? The personality has been a part of the HBO stable, as reported, for a while now and his first contribution to the network is about to make its debut. It is ANY GIVEN WEDNESDAY debuting June 22. In his first promotional clip for the show he makes it clear what he believes in, at least for the moment, and gives us a sense of what topics he will explore for a half hour on Wednesday nights. Love him or hate him, agree or disagree with him the fact is he is on HBO now and not ESPN. You can be certain that he is going to be full of his own opinion and whether or not you can roll with that is up to the...

Cinemax Makes OUTCAST Episode One Available

Cinemax Makes OUTCAST Episode One Available

As we stated in a previous post Cinemax is debuting its supernatural show OUTCAST on June 3. The show got quick buzz as it offered up facts and a cast at both New York and San Diego’s Comic Con events in 2015. This year’s SWSX hosted the world premiere of OUTCAST’s premiere episode and off of all that buzz and attention the show, based on the Skybound/Image comic title by creator Robert Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta locked in a Season two commitment. Now Cinemax has been kind enough to open up the show’s first episode to non-subscribers.  The series follows Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by demonic possession all...

NAPOLEON Miniseries Not Dead As Fukunaga Circles To Direct

NAPOLEON Miniseries Not Dead As Fukunaga Circles To Direct

HBOWatch jumped on the news of a cinematic biography of Napoleon Bonaparte as soon as we heard. That was back in 2013 with Baz Luhrmann interested. Three years later and we are no closer to product, but now Cary Fukunaga is showing interest in picking up the mantle. We can only hope it is so. The project is still based on all of Stanley Kubrick’s research and rough script outlines. Steven Spielberg and Amblin Television are still behind it. It has been a slow progress, evidently, to sift through Kubrick’s notes and materials, and the production wants to very much hold fast to that existing research that is in the hands of Kubrick’s...

Senator Sanders to Appear on Real Time with Bill Maher

Senator Sanders to Appear on Real Time with Bill Maher

The Bernie revolution is in full swing this political season and fans of Bill Maher’s show have known him for much longer than most of his current supporters do. He’s been on the show 11 times and very few people could have guessed how close he’d be to the White House in 2016. So when Exstreamist.com noticed that he’d be appearing on Bill Maher’s show on May 27th, we knew it would be a reunion worth watching. We wanted to be sure, because Real Time often changes guests at the last minute (especially when they’re this BIG!) so we asked the Real Time team, who confirmed it for us: @HBOWatch That's the...

HBO Limited Series THE NIGHT OF Drops A Sneak Peek

HBO is looking ahead to its summer lineup and while they are at it they want to build up a bit of atmosphere, you know, to set a mood. Promotional footage for the HBO limited series THE NIGHT OF has begun. Below we refresh your memory about the work and share the two clips released regarding.
