HBO Documentary Films: SUITED

HBO Documentary Films: SUITED

Overview: It can be hard to feel comfortable in your own skin if you identify as transgender or gender non-conforming. The Brooklyn tailoring company Bindle & Keep helps by creating custom suits for a diverse LGBTQ community, looking beyond the gender binary. “It’s all about just feeling great in your body, especially when people have been struggling their entire lives,” explains founder Daniel Friedman. From producers Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner (HBO’s “GIRLS), SUITED tells the story of clothier duo Rae Tutera and Daniel Friedman, who take a holistic approach to their work, considering each client’s personal narrative as...

Silicon Valley: “Daily Active Users”

Silicon Valley: “Daily Active Users”

This week on Silicon Valley, we learn many interesting ideas. We learn that statistics are important when launching a new program, but specific statistics are more important than others. We learn Guilfoyle is a human lie-detector. And we learn Jared is not the sweet, little innocent that he seems. While total downloads are in the multiple hundred thousands, daily active users is nowhere close to that. When you want to consider the success of your product, it isn’t who just buys it.  It is the person who buys it and then continuously uses it.  I can go buy a tube of toothpaste.  But if I don’t actually use the toothpaste, it...

Game of Thrones: “Battle of the Bastards”

Game of Thrones: “Battle of the Bastards”

As many Game of Thrones fans know, the 9th episode of the season is usually a whopper. Ned’s beheading, battle of Blackwater, the Red wedding, the battle at the Wall, and Dany’s dramatic escape from the fighting pits were all events that presided in the 9th episodes of their respective seasons. With that kind of dramatic build up over the years, fans are always frothing at the bit for the 9th episode. The Battle of the Bastards, in my opinion, did not disappoint. The Starks of  (not currently) Winterfell are prepared to take their home back from Ramsay Bolton. Not only does he have their ancestral home, but he has taken captive...

WESTWORLD Teaser Trailer Does Not Disappoint!

WESTWORLD Teaser Trailer Does Not Disappoint!

I’m speechless and that is a difficult way to start a post around here, but I am speechless. I wish I could just let the following speak for itself, but I am supposed to say something intelligent about the WESTWORLD Trailer dropped Sunday night before Season 6, Episode # 9 of GAME OF THRONES. If you somehow missed it here it is. Maybe, after I’ve watched it for the fifth time I’ll be able to come up with something. Okay, you remember the premise, right?  WESTWORLD is an advanced theme park in which you can live out your fantasies immersed in a themed world with programmed inhabitants. Instead of unfortunate alligators in the lake...

Movie Review: Ted 2

Movie Review: Ted 2

The best part going into watching this movie is the fact that I haven’t seen the first one. I knew Ted featured some great actors and a talking bear. Extent of my knowledge. So going into Ted 2 I was thinking “great actors and a talking bear.” What I got was so much more. Seth MacFarlane helmed the original film, as well as the sequel. Writing, directing, and even voicing the cuddly, yet foul-mouthed bear, MacFarlane has comedy chops. Creating a buddy comedy where the main character is a teddy bear was probably a crazy idea that came in a drunken, weed filled haze.  But it is hilarious.  Mark Wahlberg is best known for...

THE YOUNG POPE Drops Tease and Debuts in Europe Before HBO Screening

The limited series THE YOUNG POPE with Jude Law is a collaborative production. HBO has made it in joint with the two big production houses across Europe – Sky and Canal+. Together, under the care of famed Italian director Paolo Sorrentino, the eight-episode series for a home audience. However, before appearing on HBO later this year it is slated to air across Europe, including the U. K. and Ireland first. If you need a bit of a refresher on THE YOUNG POPE check out our reporting on the production and take in the Teaser that has turned up. The following clip is not a U. S. HBO promotional video, but an official trailer for its European...

Bill Maher Slated For REAL TIME Specials for the GOP/Dem Conventions

We are all quite familiar that Bill Maher likes to rant on his political bent. He has done so now into his fourteenth season of REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER. He ups the ante this year, but not with a traditional stand-up routine, as he has done on occasion. This year he is creating special shows timed with both the Republican and Democratic conventions. Oh, Boy!  Essentially, he will be reporting live for the East Coast after each night of the televised conventions being held in Cleveland, Ohio and Philadelphia Pennsylvania, respectively. What follows is the detailed Press Release regarding the...

Changing of Command at HBO and what It Could Mean

Changing of Command at HBO and what It Could Mean

Late last month big business news occurred at HBO. Since most of you just want your GAME OF THRONES news we didn’t report it here, but Michael Lombardo has stepped down as President of Programming to be replaced by Casey Bloys in that office. That title means that the person who holds it oversees all aspects of content for the channel. That means at the end of the day that HBO Films president Len Amato, HBO Miniseries and Cinemax programming president Kary Antholis; HBO Sports executive vice president Peter Nelson and HBO Documentaries and Families president Sheila Nevins answer to that office. Only above the President of Programming is...

Game of Thrones: “No One”

Game of Thrones: “No One”

This week’s episode of Game of Thrones, like many this season thus far, has set the stage for the great battles to come. Yes, some ended quite anticlimactically, namely the siege at Riverrun, Arya versus the Waif, and even the highly anticipated “Cleganebowl” between The Mountain and The Hound, thanks to Tommen’s elimination of trial by combat. Still, we got a taste of the battle at Meereen this week, complete with fire-wielding catapults, and lest we forget the White Walkers ominously planning their attack in the backdrop. Here’s a breakdown of this week’s episode, “No One,” and how it will likely impact the schemes and...

Silicon Valley: “Bachman’s Earning’s Over-Ride”

Silicon Valley: “Bachman’s Earning’s Over-Ride”

Pied Piper is LIVE! Not only that, but it’s become hugely successful. We start off the episode with a Bloomberg interview of Erlich Bachman (henceforth known as Erlich Blachman according to the White Pages and Google) and Richard Hendricks. At first glance, it seems odd that Erlich is trying to steal the spotlight, especially since we know that he sold his 10% of the company. Why would he want to draw attention to himself? The only reason I could think of was Meinertzhagen’s Haversack. I guess it worked because nobody suspects that he technically has nothing to do with the company anymore. It seems to be working because it’s...

“Pakistani-American college student Nasir “Naz” Khan, who lives with his parents in Queens, NY, takes his father’s taxi to go a party in Manhattan. But what starts as a perfect night for Naz becomes a nightmare when he’s arrested for murder.” Does that interest you? It should. HBO has long been working on this mini series and we’re happy it’s finally seeing the light of day. It’s an eight part mini series so it won’t last forever, but what does these days? Here’s a trailer if you need more convincing to catch this on HBO Go or HBO Now streaming next month (July 10th): There a few different...

Buzz From The HARD KNOCKS 2016 Press Conference

Buzz From The HARD KNOCKS 2016 Press Conference

HBO’s HARD KNOCKS is an extraordinary sports series with the fastest turnaround from filming to airtime for any show of its kind. But it is not like HBO and NFL Films hasn’t had years of practice now. But, as the forthcoming clip states this coming season, HARD KNOCKS: TRAINING CAMP WITH THE LOS ANGELES RAMS, is like no other season of the show. Let’s take a moment to recap the series to date. Season One (2001) gave us the Baltimore Ravens and a look at key veterans seeing their last games of play; Season Two (2002) had the Dallas Cowboys when Emmitt Smith was still playing; after a few years off it was then time for Season Three...

Marvel’s SCARLET Comes To Cinemax Not HBO!

Marvel’s SCARLET Comes To Cinemax Not HBO!

Nothing is confirmed to series yet, but the Marvel property SCARLET is in early development at HBO’s sister channel. One of the Marvel Comics gurus, Brian Michael Bendis, attended the to talk all things Marvel and let out the following news. “I do a book called Scarlet which is soon to be announced also in our universe of television. Not announced yet, but HBO.” [It is] “at the earliest stage,” [but that] “the team around it…will be announced as soon as all are on the same page.” A number of outlets jumped on the story all declaring that HBO was developing the Marvel content. That is true, but not quite. The SCARLET concept...
