Ballers on HBO

July 2, 2015 // 0 Comments

I’m catching up on all the new summer TV that has come around in the last couple of weeks. Most of it seems to be on HBO. A new show that HBO hyped quite a bit premiered recently starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson called Ballers. You may remember Ballers from back in the 90s on HBO when it was called Arliss because it’s basically the same show. Well, not totally the same show. I would say that Ballers is Arliss if the guys at Arliss ever met the clowns from Entourage. ...Click for More

The Brink on HBO

June 29, 2015 // 0 Comments

Please forgive me for not having updated you on any of the new TV shows that have premiered as of late. This pesky job of mine keeps me busy. They seem to think that because they pay me, they can tell me what to do all day long. They are old-fashioned that way. So while I’ve got some time today, I wanted to tell you all about a show that premiered recently on HBO that is fantastic. It’s one of my new favorites. The Brink on HBO starring Tim Robbins and Jack Black is well worth your ...Click for More

First, don’t continue reading if you haven’t watched the Game of Thrones season 5 finale. We are going to be discussing the “incident” that happened at the end of the show along with a few other spoilers and cliff-hangers. If you haven’t watched, don’t continue. This is your warning. I’ll even hide the rest of this on a page 2 in case you stumbled here by accident. Again, spoilers ahead for those who haven’t watched.  Go to the next page for the ...Click for More

Jeff Ross Prison Roast on Comedy Central

June 14, 2015 // 0 Comments

If any of you are familiar with comedian Jeff Ross, you probably know him from all those roasts on Comedy Central. He’s usually about the most vicious of all the roasters but usually also one of the funniest. Last night on Comedy Central, he had a new special.  He went to prison last night to roast prisoners in the Brazos County Jail in Texas. It was. Fantastic. First, he was funny. He’s always funny. He sometimes gets in to cringe and groan territory with his viciousness, but last ...Click for More

Odd Mom Out Premiere

June 14, 2015 // 0 Comments

I watched the Odd Mom out premiere on Bravo last week and decided to write about it today since you have no doubt never heard of this show. Odd Mom Out is a new show on Bravo and believe it or not, it’s not a reality show. You probably automatically ignore most of what’s on Bravo because 99% of their programming is Real Housewives related. They are trying something new I’m sure in an attempt to make you think that they can do things other than a Real Housewives show. Odd Mom ...Click for More

Game of Thrones 10 Most Shocking Moments (So Far)

June 13, 2015 // 0 Comments

Season 5 of Game of Thrones is wrapping up tomorrow night and I’m told by all the book nerds that something big is coming for us in the finale. I’m sure I could go out and find out what it is, but I enjoy watching the show and finding out what happens just like all the rest of us normal people who haven’t read the encyclopedic works of George R.R. Martin.  Knowing that something big is in store for tomorrow and being told that it’s going to be Red Wedding-esque, got me ...Click for More

Game of Thrones Meets Seinfeld

June 3, 2015 // 0 Comments

Someone out there took the time to overlay a Seinfeld laugh track on top of a recent episode of Game of Thrones. If you have seen the recent episodes of Game of Thrones, you know that there is really nothing to laugh at going on. Well unless you are a fan of rape and murder and the undead. This video is from a recent episode. Watch it with this Seinfeld laugh track over it and you can see just how much it changes the scene. It’s amazing how this stuff works and it goes to show you why, ...Click for More

Fox Cancels The Mindy Project

May 7, 2015 // 0 Comments

Mindy Project Cancelled There is going to be a lot of news about shows in the next few days as networks make decisions on which shows will be getting picked up and which ones will be getting the ax. Fox came out today and announced one of the first cancellations with news that they are cancelling The Mindy Project. While it’s not a total surprise that they are cancelling this show, the ratings have been consistently terrible, I am still mildly surprised.  Few shows have been able to ...Click for More

The Comedians Premiere on FX

April 11, 2015 // 0 Comments

I’m on record as being suspect of new shows starting at random times (HBO notwithstanding because they can do whatever they want) of the year. If they were good and the network really supported them, they would have been in their fall line-ups where all the heavy hitters come to play. The longer after the fall a show premieres, the more I assume that the network doesn’t have faith in the show and is just taking a shot with it.  Which brings us to The Comedians premiere on FX this ...Click for More

True Detective Season 2 Teaser

April 9, 2015 // 0 Comments

HBO has released the first True Detective season 2 teaser and even though it’s only a minute long, it looks fantastic. True Detective season 2 Teaser Season 2 of True Detective stars Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, and Taylor Kitsch.  Before you go running around saying that this is going to be a disaster based on who is starring, remember season 1. Remember that it wasn’t all that long ago that Matthew Mcconaughey was a laughing stock.  He’s now an Academy ...Click for More

Lip Sync Battle on Spike

April 8, 2015 // 0 Comments

Jimmy Fallon has had a popular segment of his show over the last few years where he and another celebrity would have a lip sync battle facing off over popular songs. The segment is one of Fallon’s most popular segments which means it was no surprise that they decided to take this gem of a concept and spin it off in to it’s own show. What is a surprise is that NBC passed on it. What in the heck were they thinking? Well I know what they were thinking. They are NBC. They actually ...Click for More

Neighbors With Benefits Cancelled by A&E

April 6, 2015 // 0 Comments

Neighbors with Benefits Cancelled Well I can’t say that I’m surprised, but Neighbors with Benefits has been cancelled by A&E after airing just two episodes. There had been nine hour long episodes of the reality series filmed and ready to air but the show only made it through two episodes. We covered both episodes here and we killed one of them and were somewhat positive about the other. Overall, I didn’t think the show was awful but I can see why people were not watching. ...Click for More

Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber

March 31, 2015 // 0 Comments

Well it finally happened last night. The Comedy Central roast of Justin Bieber that has been talked about non-stop ever since the idea was first announced several months ago is over. Let me start by saying that I am a fan of these roasts. I know it’s not really a roast like they were back in the day. Back in the day a roast, like Dean Martin’s, would be for someone who had been around a long time who was then roasted by their actual friends. Today’s roasts are not really a ...Click for More

Neighbors With Benefits Episode 2

March 30, 2015 // 0 Comments

Neighbors With Benefits Episode 2 I was pretty hard on the premiere episode of Neighbors With Benefits (no pun intended).  My criticism was certainly not without merit but maybe it was a bit too harsh. I decided to watch another episode of Neighbors last night and this episode was better. It’s still not great, but it was better. Neighbors with Benefits episode 2 focused on some problems that people who live in the swinging lifestyle can face. I don’t like the scripted and forced ...Click for More

Going Clear on HBO

March 29, 2015 // 0 Comments

You may or may not have heard about the documentary that aired on HBO tonight. For weeks leading up to the premiere of Going Clear people have been talking about this documentary as if it will be some kind of earth shattering revelation on the Church of Scientology. We were told that HBO had 160 lawyers working on this show to make sure they could deal with any legal claims that the church might bring against HBO because the church is famous for litigating against critics. So did the show live ...Click for More
