September 30, 2015 // 0 Comments

Have you ever seen the 1973 classic Westworld? It’s a fantastic sci-fi movie from Michael Chriton that starred Yul Brenner and a young James Brolin. The movie focused on three different amusement parks where tourists could go to experience three different old worlds. You could go back to Medieval World, which was medieval Europe where you would live like a medieval king. You could go to Roman World, which was a replica of the city of Pompeii. Or you could go to West World, which was the ...Click for More

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

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

Going Clear on HBO

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

Game of Thrones Season 5 Trailer

March 11, 2015 // 0 Comments

HBO has released a new trailer for the upcoming Game of Thrones season 5 and it looks…amazing. Game of Thrones Season 5 Trailer We have been told by Game of Thrones producers that the TV show will be breaking from the books more and more. This is due in part because George R.R. Martin can only write 1 book a decade it seems and production of the TV show is outpacing production of the source material. This is good news though for all of us who are fans of the show. No longer will we have ...Click for More

HBO just released the first trailer for Silicon Valley Season 2. I can’t tell  you how much I’m looking forward to season 2 of this show.  The trailer is from HBO so it’s a bit NSFW for language. Silicon Valley Season 2 Trailer I love this show. I’m a big fan of all the comedians on the show who all come from the current generation of guys who surround Pete Holmes and Chris Hardwick and the Nerdist empire. These guys are all hysterically funny. If you missed the first ...Click for More
