Game of Thrones: Season 6

It’s all new territory for GoT fans with the release of Season 6 to Blu-Ray and DVD this week via HBO. The series ventures into new territory, as they leave the last of the published books behind and now,¬†fans of the novels and the show have to wait to see how things in Westeros will…

The Night Of

There is so much out there in the way of binge worthy television that it can be hard to catch things the first time around, which is why things like PVRs, Blu-Ray and DVDs seem to be paying off more and more. HBO was kind enough to allow me to correct a mistake I’d made….

Banshee: Season 4

The white-knuckle, pulp thriller, rollercoaster ride that is Banshee has come to a close. While it’s bittersweet that the show has come to its conclusion, there’s nothing like going out on a high note. Brutal in its violence, dark and dry in its humour, and incredibly sexy in its liaisons, the series has captivated the…

Vinyl – Season 1

  Vinyl, Season 1, recently got its home video release from HBO, and I was lucky enough to be given an opportunity to take a look at it. Partly created by Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese, who also directed the two-hour pilot, the series is set in New York during the early 70s and follows…

Ballers: Season 1

  Dwayne Johnson takes to the field in the new HBO series, Ballers, from creator Stephen Levinson, which was released on June 14. I dug into the series on blu-ray to have a look. My first instinct, and I stand by it, is that it’s more of a dramedy than the pitched comedy, and it…

Silicon Valley: Season 2

  Mike Judge’s first season of the computer-tech comedy series was not a fluke. Unveiling today on HBO DVD and Blu-Ray is the second, equally hilarious season, that follows Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) and his Pied Piper team, as they continue to work on their compression algorithms, elude lawsuits, try to find funding and chase…

Veep: Season 4

  Julia Louis-Dreyfus returns as Selina Meyer, now interim president, while also trying to run her own campaign for the presidency in the latest season of Veep, being released to DVD and Blu-Ray today from HBO. The Emmy Winning comedy , Outstanding Comedy, as well as awards for Louis-Dreyfus each season, continues to bring a…

Banshee: Season 3

  I hadn’t even heard of the Cinemax/HBO series Banshee before HBO sent me season 3. Suffice to say, when I was halfway through the series, I ordered the previous two seasons on Blu-Ray. The series is a pulp novel brought to life, it’s lurid, colorful, violent, sexy (it’s a ridiculously good looking cast), and…

Game of Thrones: Season 5

  All it takes is for me to hear the stirring opening theme by Ramin Djwadi, and I get very excited about returning to Westeros. Now, thanks to HBO, I can journey back there to that war-torn land, and binge-watch all of Season 5’s episodes, and get ready for the approach of Winter, and Season…

Togetherness: Season 1

  Also releasing on Blu-Ray and DVD from HBO today is season 1 of the new dramedy series from Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass and Steve Zissis. The series stars Zissis, Mark Duplass, Melanie Lynskey and Amanda Peet. Brett (Duplass) and Michelle (Lynskey) Pierson have been married for a while, with two children, Alex (Zissis) is…

Girls: Season 4

  Releasing today from HBO on Blu-Ray and DVD is Lena Dunham’s captivating and entertaining series, that follows, Hannah (Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) a group of twenty-somethings that are trying to get their lives not only sorted, but started. Thanks to HBO, I’ve been with the series since…

True Detective: Season 2

  Releasing from HBO today on both Blu-Ray and DVD is the sophomore season of the intense Nic Pizzolatto written and created police drama. The critics and viewers were divided on this one, you either loved it or hated it, but I think that was partly because everyone thought they would be getting more of…
