Did You See This – HBO’s HARD KNOCKS to Be Mandatory?

Did You See This – HBO’s HARD KNOCKS to Be Mandatory?

It looks like HBO’s invasion into professional football training camp could play out into perpetuity. We missed this earlier, but got to tell you now that the NFL has passed a ruling that forces one franchise per year to participate in HBO’s HARD KNOCKS!  As you may know HBO has a struggle every year to find a pro team willing to deal with the scrutiny the cameras put them under to get the series shot. After a long search the Cincinnati Bengals came back for a second round. The NFL organization now wants to make sure other teams get the exposure as well, whether they want it or not.    Some teams, however, will be exempt in any...

“Hello Ladies” Episodes 5 & 6 Review

“Hello Ladies” Episodes 5 & 6 Review

“Party Time” Episode Five has Wade just moved into a new super tiny apartment and inviting Stuart over. Now, remember: Stuart is not a supportive friend. Stuart is an ass. So Wade gives Stuart a “grand tour,” which is easy because everything is in one room. Turn around and BOOM! bed; turn again, it’s the BOOM! kitchen. Wde can have breakfast in bed, and dinner, and lunch, and dessert… Basically, with only one chair in the entire apartment thing, everything in bed. Stuart is unimpressed – and I go, “Come on, Stuart! Be nice to Wade, dang it!” – and talks about his party. One of...

Oh Kenny, Kenny Kenny Kenny. What is going on?! Following on episode five, where Kenny didn’t turn up to the therapy session with April because he had a much more important date with a jet pack, April calls quits on their marriage. Kenny attempts to salvage something with a ‘Hey April, look how great your life is’ party which doesn’t go down well as its just another excuse for Kenny to show off how much money he has. He ultimately conquers Guy Young as while off stage Guy slams his audience, calling them names and generally being quite racist while his microphone was on resulting in an onslaught of boo-ing and yelling when he makes...

What We Know About…LOOKING

What We Know About…LOOKING

UPDATE: A FULL trailer has been released: Surprisingly folks, what he have here is a bit of a mystery. Hitting a number of sources online, including the IMDb, I have not found a lot of information on LOOKING that is premiering on 01.19.14 at 10:30pm. I guess we must expect a huge publicity ramp up for the upcoming series in December, but for now, let’s piece together what we know.   Production Company: I am mystified that I cannot even find the production company behind this endeavor. I will update this section once someone owns up to being behind the work. It is possible, however, that the individual producers are not associated with...

If you caught the last season of The Newsroom you’ll know that the Atlantis Cable News team reported on a fake story that had to be redacted. Well sometimes truth and fiction collide as something quite similar happened recently over the Benghazi incident. But Colbert wanted to get to the bottom of it so he brought in one of Television News’s finest. Here’s what happened on the Colbert Report last night: Amen, Charlie Skinner! You tell ’em! As always we anxiously await more snark from Mr. Sam Waterston next season. The Newsroom Season 3 is supposedly confirmed and we’re assuming it’ll be out in Summer...

HBO Classics: 1ST & TEN

HBO Classics: 1ST & TEN

Last Fall HBOWatch launched a new category onsite dedicated to the HBO Classics. It kicked off with a look at the long-running show TALES FROM THE CRYPT. Since then we have also looked at such programming as HBO Holiday programming; ROME and even FRAGGLE ROCK. This writer now returns back to the archives to look at an older series that seems apropos to discuss this time of year. It is 1ST & TEN.  It is football season and everyone has their favorite teams and players. HBO sort of had one also. The team was the California Bulls. Does anyone here remember them? I do. They were the focal point of an early HBO comedy series that lasted...

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: White Horse Pike

Boardwalk Empire Season 4: White Horse Pike

Relatively early in this week’s episode, Chalky makes a short but meaningful statement, publicly letting his men know that he and Richard are “friends”. The concept of friendship versus partnership, while not immediately apparent, is a key undertone in Boardwalk Empire. This sentiment came to a head this week, as the final pieces are set for the last two episodes of the season. Friendship can contaminate partnership, and vice-versa. Never was this idea as apparent as it was in White Horse Pike. The episode begins and ends with Eli, and this choice is significant. Eli is the sole person who can tip the balance on how...

What we do is not a very profitable enterprise, and they’ve been very very tolerant, and very very...
