Ever wondered what it was really like in New York in the 70s? The stories of drug fuelled excess and debauchery; did it really play out that way? With HBO’s latest offering, VINYL, you get an idea that maybe those ‘stories’ only just scratch the surface.
Animals. is an edgy and irreverent new adult animated series straight out of New York City from the comedic genius of Jay and Mark Duplass and featuring the vocal talents of some of comedy’s biggest stars.
Mark Humphries & Steve Molk ask and answer all the important questions about the 2015 Primetime Emmy Awards... Did Andy Samberg nail it? Did Game of Thrones really win best drama? What was the best thing in the gifting suites?
The body count is high, but the questions are finally in the season two finale of True Detective. But WHO actually killed Ben Caspere is almost incidental and, to a degree, irrelevant to the way the story is played out.
As True Detective proved in season one, this is a show that really can’t be pigeon holed or second-guessed. Sure, it got off to a very slow start and had almost stagnated by episode three. But things have steadily improved after it gave up the Twin Peaks pretence.
It’s taken a while, six episodes in fact, but we’re starting to see some method to the madness of True Detective season two. Those who’ve stuck with it week-by-week are now being rewarded.
Criticising True Detective season two has become a bit of a blood sport. It’s too slow. It’s too complicated. It’s not as good as season one.
The final minutes of episode 2 gave us a much-needed adrenaline and delivered a cliffhanger, when Ray was gunned down by a man wearing a creepy as crow mask. Had Game of Thrones rubbed off on its HBO stable mate? Had True Detective killed off a major character’?
After the frustrating snail’s pace of the season opener, there is some good news (and surprises) in episode two. Thankfully, Night Finds You is a little more true to the form set by season one.
Expectation can be a tough master, especially on a show like Game of Thrones. The fans have come to expect ‘big’ things as we near the end of the season.
