Welcome back to 'Girls' Talk, where we here at ScreenCrush are joined each week by critics to discuss the latest episode. In this week's outing, the ladies head to the beach for a "healing weekend" (Marnie's words), but when they encounter an old friend and no one wants to adhere to Marnie's tight schedule, tensions quickly mount and it's not long before a weekend of healing becomes one of picking (or stabbing) at wounds.
Tonight's all-new episode of 'Girls' takes our girls for a trip to the beach, but the weekend isn't all fun and relaxation: with Marnie struggling to maintain control over a carefully organized "healing" vacation and the reappearance of an old friend, it's not long before tensions mount. "Beach House" is an exceptional episode that finds these four friends picking at wounds rather than healing them.
On tonight's all-new episode of 'True Detective,' Marty and Rust have a showdown with prime suspect Reggie LeDoux -- but the suspense is only tightening from there as modern day detectives Gilbough and Papania seem to think Rust may be more of a bad guy than even he cares to admit. As we vacillate between past and present, the two stories are twisting into something ever more sinister and eerie. Read on for our full review of "The Fate of All Life."
Last Sunday brought the 15-minute 'Game of Thrones' season 4 special "Foreshadowing" that gave us our best look yet at the April 6 premiere, growing dragons and all, but who needs all those talking head interviews? Preview the latest fire-breathing, blood-gushing installments of 'Game of Thrones' season 4 with a brand-new trailer of the carnage to come!
Just as we said with HBO's earlier pickups of Jack Black-Tim Robbins comedy 'The Brink' and David Fincher's 'Utopia,' the final seasons of 'True Blood,' 'The Newsroom' and 'Boardwalk Empire,' atop the cancellations of 'Family Tree' and 'Hello Ladies' have left some major holes to fill in the lineup. Cue another series order, this time for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson pro-football comedy 'Ballers,' with such talent attached as Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Rob Corddry!
We weren't at all surprised yesterday to see HBO picking up buzzy Jack Black comedy 'The Brink,' what with 2014 bringing the final seasons of 'True Blood,' 'The Newsroom' and 'Boardwalk Empire,' atop the cancellations of 'Family Tree' and 'Hello Ladies,' and now the premium cable network has added even more cinematic pedigree to its lineup. David Fincher has re-teamed with 'Gone Girl' writer Gillian Flynn for an HBO remake of UK series 'Utopia,' sure to attract even more big-name talent to the network.
Dismayed though we were to learn that 'The Daily Show' vet John Oliver had outgrown his position as correspondent (and brief host) to Jon Stewart, his HBO future looks brighter than ever. The premium cable network has officially set an April premiere for the newly-titled 'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,' but when can fans see for themselves?
HBO will shed an impressive amount of its programming over the course of 2014, airing final seasons of 'True Blood,' 'The Newsroom' and 'Boardwalk Empire,' atop the cancellations of 'Family Tree' and 'Hello Ladies,' so it isn't a surprise to see a star-studded pilot getting the fast track. To that end, HBO's Jay Roach-directed geopolitical comedy 'The Brink,' starring Jack Black and Tim Robbins, has already been given a series order.
Welcome back to "'Girls' Talk," where we at ScreenCrush are joined by critics each week to discuss the latest episode of the HBO series. In this week's episode, Hannah is seduced by the free perks of her new job but finds that gainful employment has its downsides, as well. Meanwhile, Marnie and Ray continue to connect on a personal level, and Shoshanna attempts to put her life in order, while Jessa seems to be flourishing at her new job.
HBO had plenty to showcase on Sunday night opposite 'The Walking Dead''s midseason premiere, including 'Game of Thrones Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing' and our first look at 'Veep' season 3, but why stop there? 'Office Space' and 'Beavis & Butthead' creator Mike Judge has a new geek comedy debuting on April 6, so take a look at the first official trailer for HBO's 'Silicon Valley.'
