The Evolution of Sansa Stark

Aug 12, 2014

If you ask people who their favorite female Stark is, most people will probably say Arya. She’s pretty cool. I mean, she runs around stabbing people and being a baby assassin. However, Sansa...

Aug 20, 2014

Watching this particular episode was like having a very bizarre dream. You feel surrounded by fog and can’t quite put the pieces together. You stumble around blindly, not knowing where to go...

HBO Documentary Films: New Films for Early 2013

Well, HBOWatchers right and left we have been reading news of what shows have a greenlight for another season in 2013 and even some that find their end. The comedies and dramas are lining up nicely but we have yet to see what is happening on the documentary front, until now. Below is a quick look at eight (8) documentaries that will get screen time in the next few months. I will look at them in chronological order though most of them do not have exact air dates. MEA MAXIMA CULPA: SILENCE IN THE HOUSE OF GOD. HBOWatch has been keeping a track of this film since it made a theatrical release in September of 2012. It now makes its way to...

Filming Begins For True Blood Season 6; Manganiello says, “To Be Pretty Wild Season”

Alright ‘Trubies, this one is for you. During Sunday night’s Golden Globes, Access Hollywood managed to catch up with True Blood star Joe Manganiello and he dished some info on the upcoming installment of the series. He told Access that he will soon be cutting off his rocker-like hair in order to go back to work on True Blood this week. Wait, what?! This week? That must mean… yes, True Blood has begun filming for Season 6, which is also set to premiere this summer. According to Manganiello, he has read the first few scripts and explains them as being “pretty wild”. Here are excerpts taken from Access...

Bill is Back – Real Time Returns January 18th

A lot has happened since Bill Maher was last on HBO’s air.  America is still reeling from the events of Sandy Hook Elementary and the question of gun rights vs. gun safety is the dialogue of the day.

HBO Stars Don Pink Carpet at ‘Globes After Party

A “Who’s Who” of HBO stars made their way onto the Pink Carpet of the network’s Golden Globes After Party on Sunday night. The award ceremony, which honors the best in film and television each year, was broadcast live Sunday night with HBO taking home 5 statuettes. GIRLS had a big night after claiming 2 awards for Best TV Actress – Comedy or Musical (Lena Dunham) and Best TV Series – Comedy or Musical. The HBO Original Movie Game Change was the other winner with 3 awards. In addition to those nominated, stars from other hit HBO programs, such as Game of Thrones and True Blood, came out to enjoy...

Jeff Daniels Gives Inspired Speech on the State of Journalism (The Daily Show)

Fans of HBO’s ‘The Newsroom’ most likely find themselves in the same demographic as those who frequent Jon Stewart’s Daily Show.  But last night one of Stewart’s correspondents, John Oliver took a look at the state of investigative journalism.  His reporting led him behind the scenes of HBO’s ‘The Newsroom’ where Jeff Daniels and Emily Mortimer were presumably in the middle of filming an episode of season 2!  Take a look at the video below (Jeff Daniels appears at the 4 minute mark) to see what went down.

The GIRLS Accessorize!

The GIRLS Accessorize!

I am so sure by now that you have heard that the GIRLS are out and about yet again on HBO. Since there has been a good bit of reflection about Season One and speculation on Season Two I’d thought I’d offer something completely different. I have some tidbits on how the girls of GIRLS plan to accessorize for the new season. I know, you’re thinking “What?? What does this dude know about what the girls are sporting? He isn’t going to analyze how each handbag and dress defines each character, is he?” Well, uh no, I’m not. But I am going to tell you that GIRLS will be accessorizing with their own soundtrack and their own brand of...

First VEEP Season 2 Teaser

First VEEP Season 2 Teaser

The Vice President is back in the second comfiest chair in the land this April when Veep returns for Season, according to the latest teaser that aired tonight before the premiere of Girls. This is the first time we’ve seen Julia Louise-Dreyfus since last year. You don’t get much but we can now confirm that the sophomore season will air in April! We’ll update our HBO premiere schedule when we have an exact date.

GIRLS, GAME CHANGE Have Big Night at 2013 Golden Globes

GIRLS, GAME CHANGE Have Big Night at 2013 Golden Globes

The 70th Annual Golden Globes were held last night, which just so happened to be the same night as the premiere for Season Two of Girls. Now, on any normal premiere night, I’m sure writer/director Lena Dunham would be eating junk food while watching her hit-series with the rest of her adoring fans. Fortunately for Dunham, last night was no normal premiere. The show took home two statuettes at the Golden Globes award ceremony, including one for Best Actress in a TV Series – Comedy or Musical (Dunham) and another for Best TV Series – Comedy or Musical. Two very prestigious awards to say the least. Other than winning an Emmy...

New Footage of GIRLS S2 in “Critics Spot” Trailer

New Footage of GIRLS S2 in “Critics Spot” Trailer

HBO’s comedy-series Girls returns with its Second Season this Sunday, and HBO has released another trailer while continuing to gear up for it’s first premiere of the new year. Titled “Critics Spot”, the trailer includes lots of new footage from Seaon Two and a few quotes from… you guessed it, critics! Girls met a fair amount of criticism in Season One for its witty, humorous, yet somewhat off-color storyline. However, fans of the series maintain that creator Lena Dunham’s accurate depiction of girls living in their 20′s is unlike any that has ever been on TV. Whatever your opinion, the new series...

5 Things I Want to See in GIRLS Season 2

5 Things I Want to See in GIRLS Season 2

Girls premiere week is upon us! After what seems like an eternity, 2012 smash hit (and certified conversation-starter) HBO’s Girls is back for season 2. To get in the mood for the most gloriously awkward and cringe-inducing show about 20something girls on TV, I’d like to dive into a few things I’d like to see in this upcoming season. These aren’t predictions exactly, but more of a wish list of what I want to see this time around for Hannah, Jessa, Marnie, and Shoshanna. 1. Jessa’s marriage succeed I spent the majority of the time watching the season 1 finale thinking, “Wait. WHAT?” I thought they were kidding. After a super...

GAME OF THRONES S3 Tease: Three-Eyed Raven

GAME OF THRONES S3 Tease: Three-Eyed Raven

A new teaser trailer for the upcoming season of Game of Thrones was released today. This one features a three-eyed raven flying around New York with the “Rains of Castamere” being played in the background. Doesn’t make too much sense, but here you go. There’s supposed to be an “Invitation to the Set” video coming out on Jan. 21st. We’ll definitely be updated everyone with that one as soon as it’s released.

GAME OF THRONES Season 3 Writers & Directors

GAME OF THRONES Season 3 Writers & Directors

With Season Three of HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones returning in less than 3 months, fans are being showered with minor details and teaser trailers to hype the premiere in March. Recently, fan-site WinterIsComing.net received a confirmed list of writers and directors for each episode of Season Three. To no one’s surprise, series showrunner’s David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have penned most of the episodes for the next installment of the series. However, this marks the first time the two will actually be stepping behind the lens to direct. There are also some familiar faces on this list, particularly Dan Minahan, Alex...

I’m ENLIGHTENED. Are You?

I’m ENLIGHTENED. Are You?

Somehow I missed Season One of ENLIGHTENED.  It premiered on October 11, 2011 and ran for ten episodes. So, I needed to catch up. I have been doing so watching two episodes at a time on HBOGo with just one episode to go before its second season premiere on Sunday, 01.13 at 9:30 pm. The episodes repeat again at 10:30pm. Just for fun here are those ten Season One episodes by title: “Pilot”, “Now of Never”, “Someone Else’s Life”, “The Weekend”, “Not Good Enough Mothers”, “Sandy”, “Lonely Ghosts”, “Comrades Unite!”, “Consider Helen” and “Burn It Down.” Even before seeing the concluding episode I can say...

ENLIGHTEND’s Amy Jellicoe: Agent of Change or Archangel of Catastrophe?

ENLIGHTEND’s Amy Jellicoe: Agent of Change or Archangel of Catastrophe?

Everyone knows that one person in the office, at school or (gulp) in the family. You know, the kind that has the best of intentions, and yet, things seem to go awry. They start out with a vision and end up a complete blur. They often stumble upon things, as in hidden agendas, conspiracies or corporate treachery. Some people take the high road and stand their ground. Some stay quiet, for fear of reprisal. Others fall off the beaten path and end up…in rehab. Such is the case with our clumsy, but well-meaning heroine, Amy Jellicoe. Season One of Enlightened introduced us to a woman who was clearly on the verge of a breakdown. Amy works for a...
