Tower of London Will Host Game of Thrones Premiere

Tower of London Will Host Game of Thrones Premiere

Game of Thrones is celebrating it’s upcoming season with the chance for a lucky few to see the premiere of Season Five a month early in the fitting location of the Tower of London.  HBO created a great deal of excitement when it made the unprecedented move to release several Game of Thrones episodes in IMAX last month, but if that wasn’t sensational enough, it has now been announced that the premiere of Season Five will be shown at the famed Tower of London. The location is a brilliant choice to show “Game of Thrones,” because not only is it a castle, but it has a long history of bloody intrigue. Additionally, the...

Looking: “Looking for the Truth”

Looking: “Looking for the Truth”

We find our reluctant single guys, Patrick and Agustin, wandering around, looking for love (in all the wrong places). Clearly uncomfortable at a staff party, Patrick leaves early, only to be stopped by Kevin. After some pretty terse words, Patrick stands his ground, puts Kevin in his place and leaves without a backwards glance. You can tell Patrick is lonely, bored and sexually frustrated. He ended the clandestine relationship with Kevin and although it hurt, it was for the best. Like he said, there’s no more lying and no more sneaking around. That’s not to say that it doesn’t hurt. Or that old feelings resurface, especially when he...

Togetherness: “Kick The Can”

Togetherness: “Kick The Can”

Following their first therapy session Brett and Michelle seem just as confused as ever about their relationship, leading Michelle to suggest that they cool off and let loose by playing a game of kick ball. Despite what seemed to have been an unsuccessful visit to the therapist, which they described as “world war 3,” Michelle and Brett seemed surprisingly at peace with one another after last episodes fall out. With all that they have been through, it is reassuring to know that Brett and Michele are still willing to try new things and attempt to get out of their marital slump. Michelle’s hopes of bringing everyone together for a kickball...

Some Characters Not Dead In “A Song of Ice and Fire” to Die In Season Five

Some Characters Not Dead In “A Song of Ice and Fire” to Die In Season Five

All men must die, but in Season Five, some may die sooner than we expected. As the upcoming season of “Game of Thrones” approaches, George R.R. Martin has given us even more reason to be careful about who we get attached to. In a recent interview, the author of the epic series, A Song of Ice and Fire, upon which the TV show is based, confirmed that characters not yet dead in the books will meet their fates in the upcoming season. “People are going to die who don’t die in the books, so even the book readers will be unhappy. So everybody better be on their toes. David and D.B. are even bloodier than I am,” Martin...

Girls: “Sit In”

Girls: “Sit In”

Throughout television history, we have been privy to some of the greatest fictional love stories. From Carrie and Mr Big to Ross and Rachel if there is anything we have come to learn it’s that these guys like to break up, get back together, break up, get back together over and over again and eventually, they end up together, sort of. Joining the ranks is now Hannah and Adam for whom this episode is solely dedicated to, but this time its real. There is no canned laughter, quips from Chandler or romantic sweeping statements from Ms Bradshaw. This is just two people, evaluating their relationship in what has become one of the entire shows...

THE JINX: Chapter 02 “Poor Little Rich Boy”

THE JINX: Chapter 02 “Poor Little Rich Boy”

Overview:  Durst’s interview with Jarecki begins with his childhood, when he witnessed his mother’s suicide. His father, Seymour – distant and cold, obsessed with building the Durst Organization into a real-estate behemoth and leaving his mark on the Manhattan skyline – pressures young Robert to join the family business. Durst describes his disinterest in following in his father’s footsteps, and recalls meeting Kathie McCormack, a beautiful girl from a modest background. The couple fall in love and move to Vermont, where they lead a simple life and run a health-food store called All Good Things. But not long after, Seymour...

‘Boardwalk Empire’ The Complete Fifth Season on BluRay & DVD

No one goes quietly. It’s six years after the end of Season 4, and Nucky Thompson finds himself at the center of another power vacuum as Charles ‘Lucky’ Luciano rises to prominence in New York. The Roaring ’20s have given way to the Great Depression and the lucrative business of Prohibition is coming to an end. Now, Nucky must find a way to legitimize his empire by partnering with liquor producers in the States and abroad.

Cersei Lannister: Enemy of the State

Cersei Lannister: Enemy of the State

Daughter. Sister. Queen. Mother. Queen Consort. Monster. Cruel. Sociopath. Just some of the many words that are used to describe Cersei Lannister. And while this woman is many things to many people in the Seven Kingdoms, to me, she is a sociopathic woman, incapable of loving anyone but herself and her need for power. Cersei Lannister was born to privilege and has never had to suffer for anything in her life. Yes, we all know the tragic story of how she lost her mother in childbirth when Tyrion was born. But let me point out to you that Cersei Lannister had a cruel streak a mile wide from her early years. Case and point: look at her...

ROSIE O’DONNELL: A HEARTFELT STAND UP Review

ROSIE O’DONNELL: A HEARTFELT STAND UP Review

Overview: ROSIE O’DONNELL: A HEARTFELT STAND UP, A UNIQUE HYBRID OF COMEDY, CONFESSION AND LIFE-SAVING INFORMATION. This unique fusion of comedy, confession and life-saving information, ROSIE O’DONNELL: A HEARTFELT STAND UP finds one of America’s most beloved comedians using a familiar platform – the stand-up stage – to deliver an important message. More women die from heart disease each year in the U.S. than from all forms of cancer combined, making it the leading cause of death among American women. But the majority of them don’t call 911 at the first sign of heart trouble. “I wanted to raise awareness about women’s heart...

Game of Thrones: News Roundup including Sophie Turner

Game of Thrones: News Roundup including Sophie Turner

  With the new season of Game of Thrones exactly two months away, a constant barrage of news, updates and interviews has become the norm, which is a welcome relief after a long interim of radio-silence following Season Four. This week has been a busy one for fans, as a HBO special on the making of Season Five was released, the Game of Thrones exhibit opened, and we gained new revelations into George R. R. Martin’s original vision for his epic book series. As the week draws to the end, though, still more news has arrived hot off the presses. Seven Books Still the Plan for ASOIAF If anyone was wondering if George R.R. Martin...

Heartwarming Moments from “Game of Thrones”

Heartwarming Moments from “Game of Thrones”

With all the dark, dramatic moments, blood-filled scenes that would make “Kill Bill” proud, and high body counts of favorite characters ever increasing, it’s hard at times to remember that “Game of Thrones” has good moments. I don’t necessarily mean a scene you enjoy, but rather one that makes you realize kindness is something that still exists in George RR Martin’s harsh fantasy world. HBOWatch recently did a piece onthe most shocking moments from the show, so it’s only fair to balance that with moments that warmed our hearts. They may be few and far between, but there is a great deal more to...

Movies on HBO: WALK OF SHAME

Movies on HBO: WALK OF SHAME

HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review WALK OF SHAME, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to draw your attention to the romantic comedy playing on HBO. WALK OF SHAME premieres on Saturday, 02.14 and will air the following dates on the main channel: 02.15, 02.18, 02.23 and 02.27 as well as on HBOGo.

GETTING ON Concludes After a Third Season

GETTING ON Concludes After a Third Season

There is one more season of six episodes ahead for the hospital-set comedy GETTING ON before being discharged from HBO. Or, some may say, the plug as been pulled from its life support. The show, starring Laurie Metcalf, Alex Borstein, Niecy Nash and Mel Rodriguez, never garnered big attention, but did apparently suit the needs of the network. It never was given a big marketing push or touted as a jewel in HBO’s line-up. That just confounded this writer as this was one of my favorite works on the schedule. According to statistics an averaged viewership of 1.6 million agreed with me. GETTING ON reveals the story of the Billy Barnes Unit of...

Game of Thrones: The Exhibit Opens

Game of Thrones: The Exhibit Opens

The Game of Thrones exhibit is returning for its third year this week, giving lucky European fans the chance to get up close and personal with Westeros. The exhibit, which has had enormous success in previous years, opened in London, England earlier this week, with much fanfare. It will subsequently visit countries such as Madrid, Paris, and Berlin. The exhibit offers visitors the opportunity to see the objects that make up the world of Westeros—from exquisite costumes (including Cersei and Jaime’s get-ups as well as Sansa’s dress which defined her new look in Season 4) to frighteningly convincing weaponry (notably Needle, Longclaw,...
