Jumping right in, Richard learns that there’s more to having to work with Gavin Belson than garages within garages or pools on yachts. He still has to deal with the blood boy. The...

VICE PRINCIPALS Launches a Tease Clip & Official Poster

VICE PRINCIPALS Launches a Tease Clip & Official Poster

It is about time we saw some concrete evidence of VICE PRINCIPALS. We have only been tracking it since May of 2014. Created by Danny McBride and Jody Hill, who were also the creators of EASTBOUND & DOWN, the new show tells the story of a high school and the people who almost run it, the vice principals. The show has already committed to eighteen episodes over two seasons and perhaps it took time to get to screen because they got all those episodes in the can already. Get ready for the misbehavior of the VICE PRINCIPALS! We warned you they were misbehaving fools. The main crux of all this is that Neal Gamby (Danny McBride) and Lee...

True Crime Returns to HBO With BEWARE THE SLENDERMAN

True Crime Returns to HBO With BEWARE THE SLENDERMAN

Since true crime stories have been popular as of late with the likes of HBO’s THE JINX and Netflix’s Making A Murderer, the hunt is on for the next sensationalistic crime story. HBO is going to pick the SXSW premiere BEWARE THE SLENDERMAN has its next foray into the madness. It will offer something unique to the crime scene to be sure.  The film, by Academy Award nominated director Irene Taylor Brodsky, offers a tale hard to define. First, you got to understand Slenderman which is something we will delve into closer to HBO’s as yet unannounced airdate. He is a villain that does not exist; he is an urban legend or, as a site somewhere...

HBO Details The Upcoming Limited Series THE NIGHT OF

HBO Details The Upcoming Limited Series THE NIGHT OF

Update: Watch The Night of Online, Offline or otherwise now! HBO has now offered up a press release regarding the upcoming limited series THE NIGHT OF. That is the work that was a pet project post-SOPRANOS for the late James Gandolfini and now has evolved into a eight episode piece for John Turturro. We caught a glimpse of it in the Winter Preview from a few weeks ago so we knew it had to make the schedule sooner or later. It has taken a long time to gestate with all the changes in lead role and titles, but now it is about to make to air, though no definite airdate is given yet. Here is the official Press Release:   JOHN TURTURRO AND...

Movie Review: Max

Movie Review: Max

I am a huge dog person. I grew up with dogs, and I currently own one. So I accepted this movie review fully knowing that a dog might be in movie simulated danger and that I would probably cry. I only cried four times, I swear. There is something about the harm that comes to animals in films that makes it ten times worse than what happens to humans in film. Maybe it is because they can’t articulate what is happening to them, or the fact that they will blindly follow someone they trust into peril they don’t understand.  In any case, as a dog lover, this movie gave me a lot of feels. The basis of the film is that Max loses his...

HBO Documentary Films: A GIRL IN THE RIVER: THE PRICE OF FORGIVENESS

HBO Documentary Films: A GIRL IN THE RIVER: THE PRICE OF FORGIVENESS

Overview: A GIRL IN THE RIVER: THE PRICE OF FORGIVENESS explores the complex forces faced by women in Pakistan today, as well as clashing interpretations of women’s rights and family honor, chronicling the dramatic journey of a courageous young woman as she fights for her life, for her dignity and for justice. In the Punjab region of Pakistan, a young man and woman fall in love and decide to marry. Saba, 18, and Qaiser, 21, have known each other for four years, and Saba’s father is helping plan their wedding.

TOGETHERNESS: “Advanced Pretend”

TOGETHERNESS: “Advanced Pretend”

With only eight episodes a season for TOGETHERNESS the inevitable had to drop pretty quickly and it did. At the end of last week’s episode (“Everybody Is Grownups”) Michelle dropped the bomb to Brett that “she slept with David.” Now, in this current episode we learn how Brett handles the news and how he doesn’t really address it; Alex is with him every step of the way. In fact, both parties are with their respective support staff as Tina is with Michelle. If you recall Tina wrecked her car and so spent the night. I liked this episode, but was also a bit put off by it as well. Basically, Brett bolted out of the house and ran until...

Girls: “Japan”

Girls: “Japan”

This aptly titled episode brings us to the wonder of Japan and finally a decent check in on how Shosh is doing abroad,(after checking in on everyone else) but also features some tensions (sexual and otherwise) brewing back home in New York. Shoshanna appears to have settled into Japan and embraced the culture.  She’s living in what might be the cutest apartment complex I have ever seen, and I am incredibly jealous that I don’t live in it. Because oh my god did you see how frickin’ cute it is?!?!  It’s the equivalent of living in a geometric art piece.  But Shosh has to continue to remind people (and herself) that...

VINYL: “The Racket”

VINYL: “The Racket”

One of the many strengths of HBO programs is their unapologetic nature. Vinyl has been no exception to this, and while there are aspects of the show that border a little past absurd, it still manages to strike a harmonious chord of narrative flair, nostalgic bravado, and nuanced social familiarity. Use the last episode and this one as case in point.  “The Racket” continues the shows main storylines in a fairly roundabout fashion as it transitions from a soulfully poignant Otis Blackwell’s “Please Help Me Find My Way Home” into the vaguely comedic funeral of Frank ‘Buck’ Rogers (Andrew Dice Clay). Zak, Scott, and Skip (Ray...

CODES OF CONDUCT and CRUSHED Not Up To Code For HBO

CODES OF CONDUCT and CRUSHED Not Up To Code For HBO

For a network that has promised an increase in content it sure has been turning away considered works. Steve McQueen’s CODES OF CONDUCT has now been dropped as a series for HBO. Now, of course we haven’t seen a frame of footage from the pilot, but come on, HBO has aired such works as ARLI$$, HUNG and JOHN FROM CINCINNATI so surely they could have worked with McQueen to get this series, either full run or limited, to the screen? I mean what happened to it? It already had a green light to be a limited series of six episodes all to be directed by the Oscar nominated McQueen with Devon Terrell, Helena Bonham Carter, Paul Dano & Rebecca...

New “Game of Thrones” Season Six Trailer Released!

New “Game of Thrones” Season Six Trailer Released!

Well, it was definitely worth the wait! Check out our first real glimpse of Season Six in this breathtaking new trailer! Well, HBO has out-done itself again with a trailer that is visually stunning as well as incredibly tantalizing. While critics will probably be breaking down every shot for weeks to come, it’s important to appreciate some of the most interesting moments right off the bat. Here’s a few screen-grabs that drew our eye. The trailer assured us that Jon Snow is still very dead…at least for the moment. Dany looks to be in some dire straits. Let’s hope Ser Jorah and Daario Naharis find her...

Philip Noyce Directs Part of HBO Miniseries: AMERICAN LION

Philip Noyce Directs Part of HBO Miniseries: AMERICAN LION

We reported a while back that Sean Penn was taking on the mantle of Andrew Jackson in the developing AMERICAN LION miniseries and now a director is attached. Philip Noyce (pictured), who has directed such works as Patriot Games, The Bone Collector, Rabbit-Proof Fence and HBO Films: MARY AND MARTHA, is now expected to direct some of the six-hour program. Our source says the production should get before the cameras in October and air in 2017. Granted a six-hour period piece is a big project, but couldn’t Noyce take on the whole project? It would have made for a cohesiveness and singular vision had it been that way. We will keep an eye out...

BALLERS Season Two Trailer

BALLERS Season Two Trailer

Whoa, Dwayne Johnson would just pound us if he knew we neglected the Trailer for Season Two of BALLERS. We better take care of that. But first, just in case you put the show out of your mind let’s get up to speed. Johnson plays Spencer Strasmore, a former pro football player now financial manager, surrounded by athletes with big deals and the babes that aren’t far behind in the hot, fun locale of Miami, Florida. It is the world of BALLERS Season One played out for 10 episodes from 06.21.15 to 08.23.15 alongside THE BRINK; that show fell off the brink into cancellation, but BALLERS gets to come around for another season. If you recall at...

The HARD KNOCKS Team Is Still Up For Grabs but the NOLA Saints Thinks It’s Them

The HARD KNOCKS Team Is Still Up For Grabs but the NOLA Saints Thinks It’s Them

NBC Sports’ Pro Football Talk says they overheard the notion that the New Orleans Saints think they are the targeted team to star in HBO’s training camp series HARD KNOCKS this coming season. The site states – Per a league source, the Saints are bracing for the possibility of the league tapping them on the shoulder and directing them to be the subject of the annual Hard Knocks series. Well, that certainly could be the case as the ball club does meet the criteria, but they also could be paranoid. As always when we talk about this topic we got to mention the only teams exempt are those that have played the Playoff in either of the past...

VICE PRINCIPALS, SILICON VALLEY and OUTCAST Debuting at SXSW in March

You all know what SXSW is, right? It stands for South By Southwest which is a 3-in-1 music, film and interactive media festival under one banner. It happens in Austin, Texas every year in March and can last for days. Tool about the festival’s website to see what going down in the heart of Texas. Trust me a lot is happening doing the nine day event from March 11 – 20, but we are, naturally, singling out the HBO content.  The new HBO series VICE PRINCIPALS and the new Robert Kirkman CINEMAX series OUTCAST will make their world premieres at panels of the 2016 SXSW Music, Film and Interactive Festival this March, while the panel for...
