HBO had given a series order to Damon Lindelof‚Äôs Watchmen adaptation which isn’t a retelling of the original comic, but something entirely new. Nothing ever ends. #WatchmenHBO #DamonLindelof pic.twitter.com/ioJU0dQipw — HBO (@HBO) August 17, 2018 This almost feels like it was inevitable, but of course the pressing question is whether or not we actually need… read more

HBO has said it’s ready for a Deadwood reunion movie, but the hurdles seem almost impossible to make this happen. I have never hidden my love for HBO’s Deadwood. It is my opinion it may be the finest TV show ever made. Every aspect of this series was a master class, and it is one… read more

HBO announced on Monday that it is moving forward with a series of Westworld, based on the Michael Crichton film of the same name from 1973.

True Blood season 3 begins on June 13th, and to get ready for it the channel has released a new extended trailer. It looks like things are just as crazy as we’ve seen in the last two seasons, and possible even nuttier. We get werewolves this year added to the mix, and it looks like… read more

If you aren’t familiar with the series, it revolves around multiple families that practice “The Principle”: an old-style form of¬†Mormonism¬†that believes in polygamy. ¬†One group is a… read more
