While enduring his new wife’s whims and overt...

The Newsroom: “Red Team III”

The Newsroom: “Red Team III”

The house of cards comes crashing down despite an obsessed builder cheating the architecture with tape and nails keeping the design sturdy yet ultimately sacrificing its all important integrity. In so doing, this impatient man not only degrades what he so impassionedly designed, he’s also removed what crucial components of the house around him keep the structure solid putting everyone at risk. What’s worse is he did a sloppy job hiding it. So when everything finally began to chip away the process wasn’t a slow cascade of dominoes, it was an implosion. Stupid Jerry. I loved this episode, if for a couple things. But that’s for...

Boardwalk Empire: AC, Chicago, New York

HBO continues to build up the hype for season 4 of Boardwalk Empire. Four new videos, all containing new footage, have been uploaded to their YouTube channel. Each short video gives us a brief insight into what will be happening in each of the three major cities this upcoming season (Harlem has been given its own video to showcase Valentin Narcisse and what he brings to the table).

What’s On: HBO Schedule For September 2013

Summer is winding down friends and autumn is nigh. That means two things around here.

Boardwalk Empire: Nucky, Eddie & Mickey

Boardwalk Empire: Nucky, Eddie & Mickey

HBO has uploaded two hilarious new Boardwalk Empire-related videos on YouTube. The videos relate to the relationship between Nucky & Eddie, and the eccentric Mickey Doyle. Here’s Nucky and Eddie’s clip:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJdoCJm_GwE And here’s Mickey’s:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joXrINNBa_4 Author’s Note: I absolutely loved these clips. Putting them together was a great way to remind viewers  just how light-hearted and funny the show can be along with its serious and realistic overtones. Personally, while initially hating him, I have grown to love Mickey for what he represents; a...

Movie Review: Life of Pi

Movie Review: Life of Pi

Two sons are born to the proprietor of an Indian zoo. Over time, he realizes that they could be making more money in North America so he decides to transport the animals and his family on a cargo ship to Canada. The ship is caught in a storm and sinks, leaving the youngest son of the proprietor alone on a lifeboat in the middle of the ocean… with a Bengal tiger in stow. It’s like “Castaway,” if instead of a volleyball, Wilson was a tiger.  The story primarily takes place on a lifeboat in open water, and while a tiger may be interesting for a decent amount of time, it can’t hold your attention for the full length of the movie....

Is HBO Giving Us the Shaft?

Is HBO Giving Us the Shaft?

According to a study by the Parents Television Council, full-frontal instances on network TV increased 6,300 percent in 2012. Full nudity (non-frontal) is also rising, jumping 407 percent from last year. If the networks are showing a 6,300 percent increase in full-frontal nudity, it would stand to reason that HBO would be showing us bunches of boobs and a plethora of penises, right? Well… not exactly. HBO, as always, treats us to lots and lots of breasts and plenty of female full frontal, however, we are totally getting the shaft, penis-wise. Other premium channels, Starz, for example, has been generous with us in the penis department....

The Newsroom S2E6: One Step Too Many

The Newsroom S2E6:  One Step Too Many

The edge of the envelope is a scary place to be. On the one side, you’re safe and secure and you have everything you need, but just over the edge lies everything you want, and we all know there’s a big difference between the two. The questions is: When stepping into the Land Of Want, how far can you safely push the envelope? There’s one key scene in this episode that tackles this question for everyone but if you’re not paying attention you’ll miss the message. Here’s a tip: It’s a conversation between Sloan and Will, but that’s all I’m going to say for now. First, let’s talk about...

TRUE BLOOD – Back To Basics in Season Seven

TRUE BLOOD – Back To Basics in Season Seven

As we now conclude the shortened Season Six of TRUE BLOOD with all its burning questions we can now focus already on Season Seven. Executive Producer Brian Buckner had this to say about it. “I feel like this show is ultimately about the relationship between vampires and humans and it’s about this town. I want to bring it in a little bit. I feel like at times we’ve hurt ourselves. My goal is to get all these people living under the umbrella of one story and one threat … and make it about this small town we’ve all come to know and love.” That really makes sense I think. After all what got us involved in the...

How The Sopranos & The Wire Changed Society

How The Sopranos & The Wire Changed Society

With little in common besides coarse language and regular displays of brutality, both The Sopranos and The Wire have influenced our fascination with crime and social delinquency. With a consistently high level of acting, writing and filmmaking, both of these shows have pushed the boundaries, raised our expectations as avid TV viewers. Influential is a word heavily linked with both HBO masterpieces, but a show that’s distinguished exclusively because of its influence cannot be a truly terrific show. A terrific show, like a terrific movie or song, takes its influences and converts them, or at the very least adds a new dimension. Both The...

Thank God, It’s Over!: True Blood Season 6 Episode 10

Thank God, It’s Over!: True Blood Season 6 Episode 10

Folks, it’s time to congratulate yourselves. You have survived this mind-numbingly, insane, illogical season. I’m proud of you! Unfortunately, not everyone lived to see this 70th episode with us. A brief tribute to the (permanently) dead: Luna Garza. We saw you for a few minutes this season, you entrusted your child to your boyfriend of a few weeks (who then, after two or so episodes, dumped her with her grandmother who you hated), and then you died. I missed you. You were one of the strong females in the show, and now you’re gone. Plus, after all your work to save Emma, you should have been able to spend time with her....
