Did you Hear About Kanye West’s HBO Pilot?

Did you Hear About Kanye West’s HBO Pilot?

Truthfully, you might have seen this already, but I was in the mood for throwing something a little fun up on the site. I was sitting on this for a while, but I didn’t want to post it because I didn’t need the Wrath of Kanye down on me. Enough other sites have run it so here it is. It seems back in 2008 Kanye West wanted to add acting to his long resume. So, Larry David of all people helped him out.  Mr. “CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM” had enough enthusiasm to produce a pilot episode of a comedy for Mr. West who called himself the “black Larry David.” As the following will plainly...

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: New York Sour

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: New York Sour

All of man’s troubles come from his inability to sit quietly in a room by himself. The wise words of Arnold Rothstein act as a motif of sorts for Boardwalk Empire, and echo through New York Sour in particular. After segueing back into the lavish world of 1920s Atlantic City via the familiar sound of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, we rejoined Boardwalk Empire for the premiere of its fourth season, and boy, did it deliver. Seeing these characters again is like revisiting old friends, and the eight month time jump between seasons provides an opportunity to catch up with them, before...

True Detective Gets Premiere Window, Trailer Coming This Weekend

True Detective Gets Premiere Window, Trailer Coming This Weekend

Ever since HBO first teased the new detective series True Detective all we could think was “when?!”  Well today HBO has confirmed that True Detective will air “in January”.  This isn’t too much of a surprise but it does confirm the best 2014 scenario as we’ll be without Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones and True Blood and The Newsroom at that time.  We’re hoping that Girls season 3 also premieres alongside True Detective but consider that just speculation at this point. HBO has also promised us a new trailer that will be airing with the premiere...

Movie Review: Argo

Movie Review: Argo

Argo is finally coming to HBO. One of the hottest movies of 2012, and certainly one of the most award-winning movies in recent years, Argo, tells the story of a secret American mission to rescue six Americans stranded in Tehran, Iran. As this is movie is based on historical events, I don’t mind telling you that the mission was a success and all six Americans returned home safely, but not before enduring months of hell and constant terror as to whether they would be found by the Iranians. Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a rating of 96%, and IMDB.com rates the movie at 7.9/10 stars. I...

Game of Cosplay

Game of Cosplay

In March of 2013, I had the pleasure of writing an article about Game of Thrones Fans who create beautiful fan art that is inspired by the Game of Thrones series on HBO and the A Song of Ice and Fire series of books. While researching that article I met Ylenia Manganelli, a model, cosplayer, costume designer and artist from Tuscany. The costumes, banners and collectibles that Ylenia created were incredibly accurate replicas of the costumes that we see on HBO’s Game of Thrones. A long time A Song of Ice and Fire fan, with a special place in her heart for Cersei Lannister, Ylenia sells...

TREME’s Final Season Premiere Date Is…

TREME’s Final Season Premiere Date Is…

…December 1, 2013 and it will only be five episodes! TREME’s co-creator David Simon said of the New Orleans series that “We are going to be back for a season 3.5. HBO, upon viewing the 10 season-three episodes that we gave them and what we’ve done, they want to see the end of the story. They fought very hard to give us half a loaf. We’re going to take it and run.” In order to see a proper conclusion to the low-rated series (at least compared to the other dramatic series on the network) five episodes are better than nothing. Publicity for the final half-season should surface...
