Game of Thrones: Season Three

While every single season of Game of Thrones has been a tumultuous ride, nothing could really prepare anyone for Season 3. Interesting character development for various characters that we hated, we began to love or understand what makes them tick. The political aspects and intricacies grew deeper and the bloodshed more brutal in HBO’s fantasy […]

The third season of Treme ends with many questions that make for an interesting fourth and final season. I love this HBO series that is centered in post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans. All the main players during the third season seem to be right in reach of their dreams, turning new leaves and with eyes bright […]

Hold onto something because this is going to go on for a bit. Basically, HBO’s The Newsroom is about a fictional cable news program called “News Night” hosted by the hugely popular and moderate Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels; The Squid and The Whale).  However, even though “News Night” is fictional, the stories Will McAvoy and […]

True Blood: Season 5

When True Blood first hit the airwaves all those years back, the show had promise. Along with all of the typical bloodsucking fare, this show had an age: vampires were out. It always had the potential to be a biting commentary (pun absolutely intended) on the struggle for equal rights within the gay community. Where […]

Easily one of the greatest cable television shows of all time, Game of Thrones is a prime example of a fantasy series done right. Sprung from the mind of George R.R. Martin and his novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire, Game of Thrones is a true tour de force, with its incredible cast, […]

Ricky Gervais has expressed a desire to have a certain expected style, citing Woody Allen as a successful example of how this can be obtained.  Of course, this is a recipe open for immense backlash, with a dwindling fanbase inevitably on the horizon.  But the niche market is a place Gervais belongs, and within that […]

Remember Sarah Palin?  She was John McCain’s running mate during the 2008 presidential election.  She was mocked extensively on Saturday Night Live (as they are wont to do), and her presence made politics feel even more like the reality show it had become.  HBO and director Jay Roach collaborated to make a movie to memorialize […]
