Between the second season of Game of Thrones and the premieres of buzzed-about comedies Girls and Veep, April 2012 seems like an especially great time to have an HBO subscription — or, HBO hopes, to sign up for one if you haven’t already. The premium cable network has announced a plan to offer the first episodes of the two new shows for free online, starting the day after their debuts. Curious TV watchers will be able to check out the episodes via HBO.com, YouTube, DailyMotion, TV.com, and various Free On Demand platforms. More details after the jump.

Lena Dunham and company may be having trouble finding lasting romance in HBO’s Girls, but they’ve still got it way easy compared to the tormented lovers of HBO’s Game of Thrones. For one thing, I’m betting love affairs in the former involve way fewer beheadings. After the jump:

  • Carlton Cuse explores Norman Bates’ formative years
  • Game of Thrones drops a lovey-dovey new promo

Well, it’s about time. A couple of months ago, we got an amusing first teaser for HBO’s Veep, and last week saw the release of a short featurette from the set. But it’s only now that we’re finally getting a real look at the series, a political satire of contemporary American politics from In the Loop director Armando Iannucci.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars as a senator who wins the office of vice president of the United States, only to find that the job isn’t at al what she expected. Also starring are Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Sufe Bradshaw, and Tony Hale (looks like all that schooling finally paid off for Buster).

In addition, the network has unveiled another new trailer for Girls, Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture) and Judd Apatow‘s comedy about twentysomething women trying to make it in the big, bad city. Watch the videos after the jump.

This winter’s been so mild that it feels more like April than February, but unfortunately, actual spring is still some weeks away — which means we’ve still got some waiting to do before HBO kicks off its spring schedule. Thankfully, the network’s been good about reminding us of exactly what we have to look forward to, in the form of teasers, trailers, clips, and the like.

Today, we have another new trailer for Lena Dunham and Judd Apatow‘s Girls, as well as behind-the-scenes featurettes for Armando Iannucci‘s Veep and of course, Game of Thrones. Watch them after the jump.

While I’m sure that Luck, Life’s Too Short, and Angry Boys each have their charms, it’s HBO’s spring lineup I’m really looking forward to. Between Game of Thrones‘ return and the debuts of Judd Apatow’s Girls and Armando Iannucci’s Veep, I already know exactly what I’ll be doing each Sunday from April through June. And now, at long last, the network’s provided some premiere dates to mark on the calendar. Get the details and watch the trailers after the jump.

Drew Goddard‘s long delayed deconstructive horror film, The Cabin in the Woods, is so good it deserves a massive coming out party. That’s exactly what it’s going to get this March.

The Cabin in the Woods was just announced as the opening night film of the 2012 South by Southwest Film Conference and Festival which will take place in Austin, Texas from March 9-17. Co-writer and producer Joss Whedon will be on hand for a conversation panel the day after the upcoming HBO TV show Girls, produced by Judd Apatow and starring Lena Dunham, will also debut, screening several episodes along with Q&As featuring much of the creative team.
