silicon valley season 4 trailer

A few weeks ago, I called HBO’s Veep one of the funniest shows on television. The only reason I couldn’t call it the funniest show on television is because Silicon Valley, its partner in comedy on Sunday nights, is a thing that exists. Mike Judge and Alec Berg’s series about programmers and corporations and the various messy places they intersect was very funny in its first episodes, but it has only grown more confident (and bleaker) with each passing season.

And since the new Silicon Valley season 4 trailer reveals the show at what appears to be its bleakest, we can probably expect some pretty big laughs.

Westworld - Louis Herthum

These violent delights may have violent ends, but Westworld scene-stealer Louis Herthum is rising again, harder and stronger.

The malfunctioning android was “retired” from his role as Peter Abernathy, the father of Evan Rachel Wood‘s Dolores, but it seems that won’t be the last we’ll see of the Shakespeare-quoting, possibly sentient bot. Herthum has been upgraded to series regular for Season 2 of the HBO sci-fi series.

Westworld free will

I found the first season of HBO’s Westworld to be intriguing and full of potential, but for me, it was ultimately more frustrating than satisfying. The concept, production design, and look of the show were all fantastic, but the way it purposefully withheld information as it attempted to preserve its big reveal rubbed me the wrong way. Thankfully, the showrunners appeared at this year’s PaleyFest and implied that their approach is going to be a little different in the second season. And in addition to those comments, they also revealed which host character was the first to exercise free will – and it may not be who you think. Read More »

true detective season 3

Like a decades-old murder case where the deranged killer was never caught, HBO’s True Detective won’t stay buried. While the show has been on indefinite hiatus since the end of its deeply unpopular second season, it sounds like the once-beloved anthology mystery show may be lurching back into life with the help of a television veteran responsible for some of the greatest shows of all time. Are you ready for True Detective season 3?

Animals

Animals is one of the strangest shows to hit the small screen in the past few years. It imagines what the creatures in and around New York City would do if they had recognizable human problems – insecurity, parenting issues, dealing with bullying, marital struggles, experimenting with drugs…the works. The show was also notable for its all-star cast, which included some of the best comedic actors in the industry.

HBO renewed it for a second season a few months ago, and now they’re back with a new trailer that promises total anarchy in the weeks to come. Read More »

why tv binge-watching is bad

We may be in the age of Peak TV, but The Leftovers showrunner Damon Lindelof says that’s no reason to engage in bad TV-watching habits.

In a tongue-in-cheek letter accompanying preview episodes of HBO’s apocalyptic drama series provided to critics, Lindelof shared his opinion about the rapidly-changing TV business model, and how streaming has negatively affected the viewing experience. You can read the whole thing below.

Talulah Riley westworld

We probably won’t see Westworld season 2 until 2018 at the earliest, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be any interesting developments between now and then. For starters, Talulah Riley, a supporting actress in the show’s first season, has been given an upgrade to regular cast member for season 2. Let’s talk about what that could mean.

Game of Thrones season 6 blooper reel

At the end of the first season of Game of Thrones, three tiny dragons were born and they’re so cute and you just wanted to hold them and hug them. Then the dragons grow up a bit and became dog-sized and they were still so cute and you still just wanted to hold them and hug them. Then they grew up to be about the size of automobiles and…well, they were still so cute and you still just wanted to hold them and hug them.

Well, pretty soon, our dreams of holding and hugging Daenerys’ three dragon companions will soon be coming to an end because they’ll be as big as jet airliners in Game of Thrones season 7.

veep season 6 trailer

For the past five years, HBO’s Veep has been one of the most consistently hilarious shows on television, a scathing portrait of American politics that blends inside baseball, old-school farcical storytelling, and some of the most creative profanity in television history into one very cynical single camera sitcom. The sixth season arrives at a time when real-life Washington D.C. looks even more ridiculous than Veep could have ever imagined, but at least the new trailer promises that the series will be as funny as ever.
