There Are Plenty of Stories Left in THE LEFTOVERS

Apr 23, 2017

I don’t know about you, but I thought perhaps THE LEFTOVERS could have lasted longer than three seasons. Here we are in the midst of the third and final episodes and I’m disappointed in...

Game of Thrones Video Game Review: Episode 5 “A Nest of Vipers”

Game of Thrones Video Game Review: Episode 5 “A Nest of Vipers”

  Telltale’s Game of Thrones series is coming to an end, but the creators of the game are definitely determined to leave you with something to remember them by. While the entirety of the episodic PS4  game has been a joy to play the latest, and penultimate installment was the most impressive yet. As the story-line comes to a close, things everywhere grow more intense,  and with the ability to play multiple characters, the player experiences the growing tensions in a medley of ways, each of them exciting and engaging. As one progresses through the episode, one is simultaneously reminded of how far each character has come since the...

Hard Knocks: What to Expect from the Tenacious Texans

Hard Knocks: What to Expect from the Tenacious Texans

This past Saturday, I heard someone at the Tennessee Titans scrimmage say that we were “gonna stop that guy this season” in a situation where Titans 1st round draft pick and Heisman winner Marcus Mariota was nearly sacked. My guffaw and subsequent groans around stopping “that guy” caught the attention of a fellow fan who agreed with me. See, “that guy” is JJ Watt, a one-man offense destroying, pick your throw and slam it into your face, switch sides and scores touchdowns just ’cause, ruin your day, call your mama to take your beaten butt home, defensive end for the Houston Texans. Joining him this...

David Fincher’s Current HBO Projects Are Dead!

David Fincher’s Current HBO Projects Are Dead!

HBOWatch was all over the news when we learned David Fincher was bringing content to HBO. At one time he had three projects going and now he has ZERO. It has been officially announced that UTOPIA and VIDEO SYNCHRONICITY are not going forward and any news of SHAKEDOWN has been quiet for a while so we suspect that it is dead as well. It seems maybe he was juggling too many projects at once. His semi-autobiographical drama VIDEO SYNCHRONICITY (which started out withthe title LIVING ON VIDEO) or as some sites call it VIDEOSYNCHRAZY had halted production earlier this summer due to major rewrites. Maybe the script wasn’t clear and concise...

True Detective Season 2 Finale: “Omega Station”

True Detective Season 2 Finale: “Omega Station”

And so it ends. The second (and as far as we know final?) season of True Detective. There were a lot of expectations going in and I’m not sure it was possible to meet any of them. If HBO would have tried to recreate the first season it would have fallen short and felt stale, so they tried something different and got flack for being different. It was a lose/lose situation. Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? The first few episodes of True Detective season 2 were admittedly slow. There was a never ending stream of characters to get to know and it was often hard to follow all of the details. Season 1 was such a simple story, in...

First Full Westworld Season One Trailer

First Full Westworld Season One Trailer

You’ve heard the show synopsis, and some lucky insiders have actually seen full clips from HBO’s Westorld. But today, during the True Detective finale, HBO went one step further and previewed the series to the masses in the first full trailer for the show. I could bloviate but you’re here for the goods. Here is the first trailer for HBO’s Westword: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OM8HNuRLIBI Amazing. Incredible. Could this series dethrone Game of Thrones as the biggest, riskiest, most engaging series on HBO? The show was originally set for 2015, HBO even promised us as much in a teaser released earlier this year. But...

HBO Drops First Teaser Trailer for Vinyl

HBO Drops First Teaser Trailer for Vinyl

The creators of Boardwalk Empire and one of the head honchos from The Sopranos are making another series for HBO. Oh, you’re interested already? Let us tell you a bit more. The show follows the drug using, sex crazed world of music creation in the 1970’s. It stars some big names and from the look of this first trailer, might just be the next big show in this new golden age of television. Martin Scorses and Mick Jagger (yeah, that MJ) are on this production so you know it’s going to be legit. Here’s the first trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2irZnQMovI WOW. You know what this reminds me of? Take the period...

True Detective Finale Extended to 90 Minutes

True Detective Finale Extended to 90 Minutes

The second season of HBO’s True Detective may have been a victim of high expectations. The first season was an overnight success breaking several “first season of a series” records for the Home Box Office. How could season 2 possibly live up to that? Well, in many critics opinions it hasn’t but HBO’s president cautions us to wait for the finale before passing final judgement: “I think you need to watch the entirety of it…I think the season’s ending is as satisfying as any series we’ve done.” But here’s the kicker: True Detective season 2’s finale will run 87 minutes! We could...

True Detective Black “Maps and Motel Rooms”

True Detective Black “Maps and Motel Rooms”

We have four desperate people, trying to tread water in the treacherous murk that is Vinci. Nobody is trustworthy. Those that are tend to meet a grisly end. Those who have been pushed to their limits, seek revenge. Those who have been falsely accused are trying to do the right thing and set the record straight. While Ani is fighting the effects of the drug induced haze she was put through at the sleazy sex party, Ray watches over her in a remote motel room. They still have to figure out about what to do with their potential witness, Vera, who is hostile and ungrateful for being pulled from that party. It’s put her in a precarious...

The Leftovers Season 2 Photos

A number of photos from the upcoming second season of The Leftovers have been published, giving us a small sneak peak at what is to come in the second season. There already was a teaser released back in June, so in the coming weeks there would be some more official snippets and sneak peaks coming, as the season premieres on October 4th. Season 2 will take place in an entirely different setting than the first, as the cast has relocated to Jarden, Texas. While a number of new characters are being added to the show for the second season, the central characters from the first season are here to stay. Jarden, Texas is a place in which there was a...

Deadwood’s Ian McShane Cast For “Game of Thrones” Season Six

Deadwood’s Ian McShane Cast For “Game of Thrones” Season Six

Finally some news about Season Six! HBO is being uncharacteristically tight-lipped about its upcoming season of Game of Thrones, but the TV network broke its silence recently. Entertainment Weekly  announced earlier today that renowned Emmy Award winning actor Ian McShane will be joining the cast for Season Six. This will not be McShane’s first time in an HBO series. Ian McShane is well-known for his stellar acting in the well loved TV show Deadwood but has also made a name for himself acting in more light- hearted entertainment such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Kung Fu Panda. HBO did not disclose what character McShane...

Movie Review: Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance

Movie Review: Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance

I’d be surprised if I found a film that came out in the past few years more divisive than Birdman. Coming out of awards season with the Academy Award for Best Picture amongst several others, a lot of people saw this as Hollywood once again patting itself on the back with another self-congratulatory tale of an actor aspiring to greatness when the world around him tries its damndest to pull him back down to Earth as though he were Icarus flying towards the sun.  Except Icarus’ wings were made of wax and melted when he got too close. And if that metaphor seemed a bit pretentious in your mind, this is going to be a fun ride. This...

New Scorsese Series Will be Called Vinyl, Air in 2016

New Scorsese Series Will be Called Vinyl, Air in 2016

After almost a year of speculation and waiting we finally have a name for that long-awaited series coming from the team that brought us Boardwalk Empire.  ‘Vinyl’ is a drama created by Terence Winter and Martin Scorsese that follows the life and misadventures of a music producer in the 1970’s (Bobby Cannavale). The Emmy winning Cannaval isn’t alone in this sure-to-be-a-hit series– far from it. Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano and several other faces you’ll probably recognize are part of Vinyl’s casting call. Not only has the name been a secret until now, the premiere date– hell, the premiere year...

HBO Suggests Game of Thrones to Have Eight Seasons

HBO Suggests Game of Thrones to Have Eight Seasons

Seven hells! Game of Thrones is going to have eight seasons! George R.R. Martin may be writing a seven-book series about the world of Westeros– a land with seven gods and seven kingdoms, but the show Game of Thrones will now have eight or more seasons.  The news was broken by the HBO President President Michael Lombardo who made the announcement at Television Critics Association.  At least another season more than we have anticipated is exciting news for everyone reluctant to see Game of Thrones leave their screens for good. While Game of Thrones writers D.B. Weiss and David Benioff have often suggested that they planned to...

HBO Hopes for More from David Chase and Larry David!

HBO Hopes for More from David Chase and Larry David!

The Summer Television Critics Association (TCA) event had HBO in the house and a number of announcements have dropped regarding the network. President of Programming Michael Lombardo held the stage and offered up the following: David Chase, creator of THE SOPRANOS, has had a project in mind for more than a few years now. It is entitled A RIBBON OF DREAMS and is about the early Hollywood film industry.  It was a project HBO and Chase entertained a couple of years after THE SOPRANOS concluded in 2007. Lombardo stated “I’ve seen pages. He showed us two hours worth of material, and I trust I’ll see more by the end of the year. I think...
