The comedy Snatched comes to the small screen this Saturday and if you’re ready for an unlikely duo to offer crazy adventure and laughter, then Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn will do the trick.

  HBO welcomes Divorce back for its second season. While I enjoyed the first season, I thought to myself—how much longer do we drag out this divorce? Once it’s done, what do we do with the divorcees? And well…now we know!  After a mini-review, the series picks up a month after Frances (played by […]
Overview: After struggling with mental illness for most of her life, New York artist Ruth Litoff committed suicide at age 42 in 2008 by overdosing on prescription pills.

There was certainly some grumbling and griping on the internet after HBO officially announced Game of Thrones will delay its final season until a 2019 premiere. But with the end in sight, we have plenty of time to try to come up with how exactly we shall pass our down-time after the show ends… There will be […]
It is a shame John Oliver feels he has to take such a long hiatus between seasons of his Sunday night show. I mean think of what all he has missed. How about the start of the Times Up movement, wildfires, mudslides & sub-zero temperatures, “shithole” Haiti, Hawaii’s false alarm, Oprah for president and President […]
We told you back in August of ’17 that these two ladies, Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson, were coming to HBO. They do so collectively as 2 Dope Queens beginning on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2. Unless you do the podcast thing most of us haven’t heard of the banter offered up. That is about to change […]
  HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review the eighth movie in the Fast & Furious franchise, entitled The Fate of the Furious, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t want to draw your attention to it. Screeech! Put on the breaks and skid to a stop – are people getting […]
Among the flurry of press releases that came our way recently was one about the upcoming documentaries so far slated for the first half of 2018. I say “so far” because there are always additions to the slate or a shuffle of order as the year goes on. Before we begin our look at the […]
Yes, I’ve never heard of him either, I don’t think. I might have seen or read work by him but can’t place him right now. Apparently, HBO has heard of and followed journalist Ronan Farrow and likes his style. They like him enough to sign him on for exclusive content for HBO. Here is the […]
The call to arms for TIME’S UP is still going strong and calling out abusers/offenders across all walks of life and across the country. The entertainment industry and Hollywood have been hit the hardest and has even affected HBO. We’ve reported that Louis C. K. content has been purged from HBO’s platforms, but that Jeremy […]
Even in the wake of the announcement that Game of Thrones will not premiere its final season until next year, the show continues to dominate the news. Earlier this week, the show which was nominated for a Golden Globe Award in Best Drama lost to Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale. Regardless, it was a good night for Game of Thrones. […]
It appears we are going to have to pay close attention to the HBO schedule in 2018. With new series showing up, and limited series the norm nowadays, the schedule is all scrambled. We have official notice now of two comedies coming up in March. One of them is completely unexpected. First, we had a […]
The Emmy®-winning HBO comedy series SILICON VALLEY will return for its fifth season SUNDAY, MARCH 25 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT). The show takes a comic look at the modern-day epicenter of the high-tech gold rush, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. A collaboration between Mike Judge and Alec Berg, SILICON […]
If you watched the 75th Golden Globes event (we did not) or saw the buzz after the fact (which we did) you already know that Oprah Winfrey stole the show, but in her shadow HBO did get awarded a few of those chunky Foreign Press baubles and lost out on some also. Here via an official […]
It is safe to say that Issa Rae is doing A-OK at HBO. The network wooed her away from her internet gig and she developed and hit big with INSECURE with costars Jay Ellis and Yvonne Orji. It has been critically acclaimed through its two-season run and that success helped her get a development deal […]
It is almost time to get the Watchmen to assemble. Be on the lookout for The Comedian, Ozymandias, Nite Owl, Dr. Manhattan, Silk Spectre and Rorschach as these characters come to life. But, don’t misread the headline. Note that it says the Pilot has a start date – not the series. You should know the […]
Overview: Sometimes referred to as the country’s “most dangerous editor,” Washington Post executive editor Ben Bradlee was largely credited with taking down President Richard Nixon in 1974 after the Post broke the Watergate story, exposing the largest political scandal in American history. Told primarily in his own words, THE NEWSPAPERMAN: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF […]
HBOWatch Editors were not able to line-up a writer to review EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING.  Oh, well not everyone is into romance movies. But, that doesn’t mean we don’t want to draw your attention to this movie adaptation of a YA novel. The source material is the same name and was written by Nicola Yoon and became […]
