New True Detective Trailer Is Creepier Than The Last One
Since HBO released the premiere date for its new drama series True Detective last month, the network has begun advertising for its high-profile series in earnest. This week, the network released the second trailer for the drama, which follows two detectives looking for a seriously twisted serial killer.
Boardwalk Empire Watch: Season 4, Episode 8 - The Old Ship Of Zion
Whenever 'directed by Tim Van Patten' appears at the end of Boardwalk Empire's opening credits, it's probably going to be a pretty darb episode and "The Old Ship of Zion" didn't disappoint. Instead of the drama's often sprawling narrative, the eighth installment of the fourth season focused on only a few characters and yet that somehow made it seem like even more happened than usual with each thread taking a significant step forward.
Boardwalk Empire Watch: Season 4, Episode 7 - William Wilson
The first half of Boardwalk Empire's fourth season was solid, playing up Nucky's increasing isolation as well as developing several feuds in the concurrent threads, and yet it still flew by in somewhat forgettable fashion. Episodes 1 through 4 were overshadowed by the end of Breaking Bad with the final stretch of AMC's illegal drug drama dominating the water cooler conversation for most of the fall season. Too bad "William Wilson" isn't likely to steer the talk (back) to Boardwalk.
HBO Announces Premiere Dates For Girls, True Detective And Looking
As much as I love Boardwalk Empire and Eastbound & Down, I’m already ready for next year’s HBO programming, which will include new seasons of Game of Thrones and Girls. Speaking of the latter, we can now officially look forward to winter premieres. On Wednesday, HBO announced the premiere date for Girls’ Season 3, as well as new dramas True Detective and Looking.
Boardwalk Empire Watch: Season 4, Episode 6 - The North Star
Last night's Boardwalk Empire marked the half-way point for the fourth season and "The North Star" spent a lot of time focusing on the show's various families. Family is obviously a common theme in many gangster dramas, especially when it comes to 'la Cosa Nostra,' and almost every storyline in the sixth installment involved one coming together or being torn apart. In some cases both at once.
GLAAD Announces There Are Less LGBT Storylines On TV This Year
Today, GLAAD released a couple of its annual reports measuring different TV networks for feature a variety of LGBT characters and stories. The seventh annual Network Responsibility Index and the 18th annual Where We Are on TV report both measure diversity on television, and while some networks have been described as “good” and others have totally missed the mark as far as LGBT characters are concerned, no network was graded by GLAAD as being “excellent.”
Hello Ladies: Watch The Full Pilot Episode Of Stephen Merchant's New Comedy Online
HBO premiered Stephen Merchant's new comedy series Hello Ladies last night, and for those who don't have HBO, the network has been kind enough to make the series premiere available online for your viewing pleasure. Watch the full episode and prepare yourself to see Stephen Merchant bumbling his way through single life ahead!
Boardwalk Empire Watch: Season 4, Episode 4 - All In
As fantastic as Boardwalk Empire is, it's hard to want to watch and discuss the HBO period drama when the last episode of Breaking Bad is on AMC at the exact same time. The events in Atlantic City are almost always compelling, with 1924 being another banner year for the series so far, however, it's hard to concentrate on a measly fourth installment with the another seminal series airing its highly anticipated series finale. Even when they go "All In."
Boardwalk Empire Renewed For Season 5 On HBO
HBO’s Boardwalk Empire has only aired three episodes this season, but apparently that’s enough for the subscription cable network to give the go-ahead for next year’s Season 5. With storylines in Chicago, New York, Atlantic City and elsewhere, the drama rarely runs out of things to talk about and signing on for a fifth season almost seems to be a formality.
Robert De Niro Taking Over James Gandolfini's Role In HBO's Criminal Justice
On Wednesday, HBO took the first step toward doing so by greenlighting the network’s limited series, Criminal Justice, with Robert DeNiro signed on in the actor’s place. The New York crime story was a passion project for Gandolfini, who was expected to begin filming the rest of the series after he returned from Rome.
Eastbound & Down Season 4: A Look Back And A Look Ahead
If you noticed in the preview, Ken Marino pops up in the trailer. The Party Down actor is playing Powers’ new pal, Guy Young. Tim and Eric’s Tim Heidecker is also signed on to play a role in Season 4. He’ll play Kenny’s neighbor, Gene, a dude Kenny dislikes to a great degree and will frequently show it in the series. Oh yeah, and Lindsay Lohan is even set to appear
Christopher Abbott Explains Why He Left HBO's Girls
Abbott left Girls last spring, reportedly due to differences the actor was having with the show’s creator Lena Dunham. Thus, he won’t be in any forthcoming episodes, but he has spoken out to explain his decision to leave the subscription cable network show.
Boardwalk Empire Watch: Season 4, Episode 3 - Acres Of Diamonds
Even though the Emmys forgot to nominate Boardwalk Empire for Outstanding Drama Series at least they came to their senses and awarded the Outstanding Supporting Actor (in a Drama Series) statue to Bobby Cannavale for his fantastic work on the period piece last season. Don't worry, Breaking Bad fanatics. Aaron Paul will win again next year. Well, unless Jeffrey Wright continues to impress as Dr. Valentin Narcisse, Season 4's Gyp Rosetti.
Damon Lindelof's The Leftovers Adaptation Goes To Series At HBO
The Leftovers is a go at HBO. Warner Bros. TV passed along the good news today that HBO has given Damon Lindeloff's TV adaptation of Tom Perrotta's novel The Leftovers a series order. The pilot episode was written by Lindelof (Lost) and Perrotta, with Friday Night Lights' Peter Berg credited for directing the first episode.
The Newsroom Watch: Season 2 Finale, Election Night, Part 2
Somewhere between the end we wanted and the end we deserved lies this episode. Aaron Sorkin has raised our hopes with sterling writing this season, only to occasionally dash those same hopes as he reverts to type with formulaic and sometimes silly/lazy writing. We got a little of both last night, wrapped up in a curious set of plots without loose ends, as if Sorkin himself doesn't want a third season, despite all the tweeting and unofficial announcing his cast has been doing about just that happening as a done deal.
