Just in case you thought Girls was losing its hipster cred, fear not. The HBO show’s first teaser for Season 3 is completely comprised of Instagram photos. While the video gives nothing away in terms of plot, it shows the entire gang back together having fun on set. With an NBC sitcom no longer distracting him *cough* canceled *cough*, Andrew Rannells returns to hang with the Brooklyn foursome.
Check out the teaser below which uses Robert ToTeras’ “Break Out The Boom Boom” as the soundtrack. It sorta plays like an old school family slideshow but with a really hip and cool track. What else would you expect from Lena Dunham.
If you haven’t watched the Season 6 finale of True Blood yet, don’t proceed. Hopefully you have, because last night’s episode was wicked. It was the perfect way to cap off a great season and set the foundation for the upcoming one. My one complaint is that they killed off two of the supernatural show’s hottest vamps.
First there was Warlow meeting his true death. Though I didn’t expect Robert Kazinsky to stay, I hoped producers would find a creative way to keep him. I’m still swooning over that steamy homoerotic scene with Ryan Kwanten.
The other death was a bit more shocking, though expected if you’ve been following rumors surrounding the show. Alexander Skarsgard who plays Eric looks to also have met his demise while sunbathing atop a Swedish snow-capped mountain. When Warlow died, his magical blood powers which Eric drank, made vamps once again susceptible to sun. Ergo Eric bursting into one huge fiery flame.
Hopefully, the writers didn’t kill him off because that would be a huge bummer. Perhaps Pam, who was on a mission to rescue him arrived in time to save him. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait til next summer because HBO and show producers are keeping mum on the topic. Just in case you missed it or you want to see Skarsgard completely naked again, watch the scene below.
Need your Girls fix before the HBO show returns for its third season? Well, you’re in luck. The Season 2 DVD is available now and comes with a whackload of extras that should appease every Hannah Horvath-obsessed viewer. The compilation features interviews, audio commentaries, deleted and extended scenes, table reads, gag reel and plenty other features. HBO has made a few of them available online. Check out a quartet of clips below.
The first major casting news of Game of Thrones Season 4 has been made. The hit HBO show headed to Chile to find its Oberyn Martell aka The Red Viper. Given the importance of the character, I’m pretty sure Pedro Pascal beat out tough competition to land the coveted role. For those unfamiliar with the Red Viper, he is the Prince of Dorne whose sister was killed by the Lannisters when the Mad King was overthrown. Here’s what the showrunners told EW.com about the casting.
“The Red Viper is sexy and charming, yet believably dangerous; intensely likable, yet driven by hate… We found a fellow who can handle the job description and make it seem effortless. He wasn’t easy to find and he won’t be easy to stop.” – showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss
Keri Russell has The Americans on FX. Scott Foley was recently promoted to series regular for the third season of Scandal. With this casting development, all three actors tangled in Felicity’s love triangle now all have regular TV gigs. God, I miss that WB show ;)
Scott Speedman just landed a lead role on Ryan Murphy’s HBO drama pilot, Open. Hopefully, this job lasts longer than his last television project, ABC’s The Last Resort. On the potential HBO show, Speedman will play Jonathan, a handsome sports agent in the drama that explores sexuality. Given that this is a Murphy project, I fully expect a few gratuitous shirtless scenes. Scott joins the cast which includes Wes Bentley as the handsome but arrogant Evan Foster.
On June 6, 1998 HBO premiered its groundbreaking new comedy, Sex and the City. I’m sure the network, the stars or Darren Star couldn’t have imagined in their wildest dreams the impact Carrie Bradshaw and her crew would have on pop culture. Til this day, I quote multiple references (i.e. post-it) from the show. It’s probably due to watching the entire series over and over again on DVD.
Thanks to costume designer Patricia Field, every woman wanted to mimic the fashions the ladies wore. From oversized flowers, to Manolos, Birkin or Fendi Bags and everything in between, there was no better place for designers to pimp out their products than on the show. In addition to being a fashion powerhouse, SATC was also a critical darling. The show won a Best Comedy Emmy in 2000, while Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon picked up Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress Emmys respectively.
In honor of the cultural impact the show had, I decided to share fifteen of my favorite clips. I don’t want to say its my Top 15 because some of the scenes I was looking for, I couldn’t find. With that being said, the ones I did choose are up there. Pour yourself a Cosmopolitan and walk down memory lane watching these classic moments from Sex and the City.
Just before last night’s episode of Game of Thrones, HBO debuted a new teaser for the upcoming second season of The Newsroom. There isn’t any dialogue, just images of the cast wandering in the desert in slow motion doing their own thing. In the end, they come together as the tagline “Together they stand alone” appears.
I don’t watch the HBO drama, but according to creator Aaron Sorkin, people new like myself won’t have too much trouble picking up what’s going on. During Season 2, the show plans to tackle the 2012 election, the Occupy Wall Street movement and of course all the personal drama of the Atlantis Cable News team. The show returns with brand new episodes starting July 14. Check out the new teaser below.
The highly-anticipated Liberace biopic certainly delivered. Behind the Candelabra scored boffo ratings for HBO. The Steven Soderbergh film delivered 2.4 million viewers in its first airing, making it the most watched HBO film in almost a decade since 2004′s Something The Lord Made. When you factor its second airing Sunday evening, a total of 3.5 million watched the glitzy biopic. Definitely impressive given television viewing typically is less during Memorial Day weekend.
Did you watch Michael Douglas and Matt Damon play gay lovers? Did you love it or loathe it? I was in Seattle and about to watch it, but two friends who saw it earlier said it sucked big time. Truthfully, they have awful taste. LOL. I kid. I’ll probably check it out later regardless of their opinion. Sound off below.
