David Simon, creator of HBO’s The Wire, is gearing up to make TV audiences praise his name again with another hard-hitting social drama. HBO has officially given the greenlight to Simon’s Show Me a Hero, a politics-filled miniseries led by the talented Oscar Isaac and Catherine Keener.
This week’s episode of The Leftovers should have come with pre-show suggestion that the first sequence only be watched by people who absolutely hate the Guilty Remnant, and in particular, the title character Gladys (and also probably sports, the government and all of Earth's living creatures)
Now we can put our big foam fingers on in anticipation for the star-studded mockumentary 7 Days in Hell, which will center on SNL vet Andy Samberg taking on Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington in a marathon tennis match. Just what you thought it would be, right?
It should surprise no one that HBO has lured big names such as Oscar-winner Anthony Hopkins and the Emmy-nominated Evan Rachel Wood to its pilot re-imagining of Michael Crichton’s 1973 classic Westworld.
Let’s be clear though; even for an episode revolving around the “kidnapping” of a Baby Jesus baby doll, “B.J. and the A.C.” is almost a sitcom as compared to the dourness radiating off of the previous three episodes. There is levity to be found here.
I was wondering if The Leftoverswould ever pull an episode off that resembled Damon Lindelof’s work on Lost, and this episode will probably come as close as any, though it’s far more singular in focus and much stranger from moment to moment than Lost ever was.
In the fastest news to zip around the entertainment-verse today, it seems like True Detective may have landed another Season 2 lead. Soon after news broke that veteran actor Colin Farrell is in talks to join the critically-acclaimed drama, news broke that his partner in crime will likely be none other than Taylor Kitsch.
What fans are really hungry for now is news about who will take the two stellar actors’ places once Season 2 rolls around. Here’s one big clue: Colin Farrell.
The Comeback's big comeback now has as a premiere month set. While HBO hasn't release the exact date for Valerie Cherish's official return, the premium cable channel has announced that The Comeback will return as a limited comedy series this November, along with the second season of the Laurie Metcalf comedy Getting On.
Following up on the lengthy list of Emmy nominations that was announced today, we've picked over the choices the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences made with regards to the main categories, and we found quite a few reasons to applaud the nominees, and just as many reasons to to wave our fists and complain over the talented actors and outstanding TV shows that didn't make the cut this year.
Following another big death on True Blood, we're forced to face the reality that anyone can die on this series in its final season. Will we see another major character death on the HBO drama next Sunday night when "Death is Not the End" airs? Well, there are certainly plenty who are in harm's way, Arlene included.
Another week of HBO’s The Leftovers, another week of me staring at my television as if it’s a malfunctioning piece of random technology. After last week’s premiere, I naively assumed that things would become normal in Mapleton, New York, despite reading other reviewers saying that it wouldn’t. I’m an optimist when it doesn’t count, what can I say?
More drama awaits Bon Temps. Vampires are sick. Humans are in danger. And as is often the case, Sookie is caught somewhere in the middle. The preview for this Sunday night's "Fire in the Hole" hints that something may be wrong with Lafayette. And there's a new sheriff in town! Or mayor, technically.
There was a lot of hype leading into HBO’s The Leftovers premiere. Damon Lindelof, the popular creator of Lost, is behind the new series and the drama nabbed a cushy slot, premiering after True Blood’s latest episode. Still, it looks as if all of the hype may not have paid off, after all.
HBO kicked off a brand new documentary lineup last Monday night. Presumably, it hasn’t been a big hit, because this Monday, the subscription cable network has put together a press release letting fans of the network know that this documentary lineup is here to stay. On Monday nights, HBO plans to release original documentaries, as well as encore presentations of past documentaries. You better watch out, NBC’s The Blacklist.
