If there’s one scene that best captures the sense of hallucinatory wonder of watching HBO’s The Young Pope, it’s a vision that the Pope has in the season finale.
HBO’s Westworld, the haunting tale of what can happen when cowboy sex robots go awry, spent its first season unwrapping many of the mysteries that so captivated its audience—save, that is, the question that has tormented fans most of all. And that’s apparently exactly how HBO wants it.
Television’s best show about murderous sex robots, HBO’s Westworld, wrapped up its debut season last night in the way most prestige TV shows do. Characters died, twists were revealed, and the season ended on a somewhat ambiguous note.
The most fun I had watching the first season of HBO’s Westworld, a show about a theme park full of murderous robots owned by an angry gamer, occurred during last night’s finale. Spoilers ahead, for anyone who has watched fewer than three episodes of this show and also doesn’t have an internet connection.
“The best thing about making content in 2016 - if you have good content, people are going to find it no matter who you are and where you are.”
HBO’s Game Of Thrones, the hit show about sibling fucking, is currently in the process of filming its seventh and kinda-sorta-not-really final full season in Spain. While most of the plot developments of the first six seasons were either matters of public record or relatively simple to discern, author George R.R.…
HBO and Bill Simmons have agreed to cancel his TV show, Any Given Wednesday, before the conclusion of its first season, according to a press release the network just sent out.
It’s great to see people speaking out passionately for social justice. So it pains me to tell you that you’ve accidentally been directing that passion towards a world that is total fiction.
HBO’s Westworld is draped with the trappings of the horror, action adventure, and Western genres, but it’s best understood as a mystery. The show doesn’t exactly have a coherent, unified plot so much as a tableau of vignettes and characters whose interconnectedness is only vaguely clear. The more that the show reveals…
There’s this moment in the premiere of HBO’s Westworld, the network’s latest drama offering and one of its most expensive since Game Of Thrones, when two characters come across a robbery in progress. You’ve watched this scene play out in hundreds of Westerns; the white hat kills the black hats, saving his beloved and…
Almost every character in The Night Of, the eight-episode limited crime series that wrapped up on HBO last night, acted like a big idiot at one point or another.
When former Funky Bunch boss Marky Mark claimed to Mike & Mike that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had contacted him personally to lodge complaints about HBO’s Ballers, we called bullshit. Not only is Goodell too busy with more important things to bother with that kind of task, but even if he weren’t he’d call someone…
Yeah. Can you feel it baby? Thus start the lyrics to Marky Mark’s 1991 and only hit “Good Vibrations,” but if the former Funky Bunch leader is to be believed Roger Goodell’s answer is “No. I am not feeling it,” if the inquiry is in regard to HBO’s series Ballers, of which the retired rapper is an executive producer.
The opening sequence of Any Given Wednesday, HBO’s new weekly talk show about things Bill Simmons thinks are cool and fun, follows a bunch of stray objects floating inside a vacuum, which must be a metaphor for something. As the rapidly cut segment goes on, we watch all the sports balls, sports shoes, and sports…
Any Given Wednesday, Bill Simmons’ new weekly sports talk show, debuted this evening on HBO. It was ... exactly what you’d expect. It opened with a segment on the NBA Finals and LeBron’s greatness (featuring a Teen Wolf comparison less than two minutes in) before Charles Barkley joined the show to lay down his takes…
Jim Lampley closed last night’s live boxing telecast with a final word on what Muhammad Ali meant to him—and the world—with an observation about The Greatest that choked up the longtime HBO announcer.
There are plenty of conspiracy theories surrounding the Rams’ selection of Michael Sam in the 2014 draft, all centering around the NFL’s desire to avoid the PR of watching the league’s first openly gay prospect go undrafted. But this is a new one.
With just over a month and a half to go, we finally have it—our first proper look at Game of Thrones’ sixth season. Without the books to guide us, we don’t really know what’s going to happen (or, we’re not supposed to). But we can still break down a lot of what we can see in this new trailer. Care to join us?
