Among the many 2014 HBO premieres, we're increasingly excited for Cary Fukunaga's dark Woody Harrelson-Matthew McConaughey drama, 'True Detective,' which today offers an orgy of evidence to its quality. Along with a brand-new trailer that debuted with last night's 'Boardwalk Empire,' HBO offers up character profiles on either lead, a creepily ominous new poster, and even a scene from 'True Detective' to come.
On tonight's all new episode of 'Boardwalk Empire,' there are plenty of surprises to go around: Nucky's shipment from Florida contains something he didn't order, while Agent Knox discovers a little leverage to help him turn Eli Thompson against his own brother. Meanwhile, Chalky tries to regain control over his part of town, declaring war on Dr. Narcisse and his heroin business in "The Old Ship of Zion."
This week's new episode of 'Boardwalk Empire' continues to set the table for dark things to come. In "William Wilson," taken from the Edgar Allan Poe short story of the same name (and hardly subtle), we learn a little about identities and shadows -- and at long last, we learn a little truth about our pal Agent Knox.
HBO gave us an early sneak peek at 'Girls' season 3 with the Instagram-y teaser trailer back in August, but now having officially set the return of Lena Dunham's Golden Globe-winning comedy for January 2014, we've got a much more substantial look at new footage and behind-the-scenes production. Find out who's depressed, who's working at a pizza shop, and who's waking up in random boys' beds in the first look at 'Girls' season 3!
Though we've no doubt 'Game of Thrones' season 4 will prove every bit of a major ratings splash as its predecessors, even fans of George R.R. Martin's writing have a difficult time imagining how it will splice together aspects of multiple novels for the increasingly spread-out cast. At least one major character may move significantly further in their story, however, as UK actor Struan Rodger has seemingly joined season 4 in a likely crucial role.
HBO's 'Boardwalk Empire' and 'Eastbound & Down' seasons always manage to ease the long journey from 'Game of Thrones' and 'True Blood' each year, but the pay cable network is going all-out this January. Not only will 'Girls' premiere season 3 in January with a double dose of Hannah Horvath, but so too will moody A-list crime drama 'True Detective' and buzzing Jonathan Groff dramedy 'Looking.'
A few months ago, we saw the folks at Bad Lip Reading branching out from the usual movie and music video fare to their first TV parody with 'The Walking Dead,' and now it seems we've reached the next rung on the ladder. 'Game of Thrones' gets the most inventive and extended parody yet as an adventurous indie medieval theme park comedy, and oh yes, there will be Tyrion pimp-smacking.
On tonight's new episode of 'Boardwalk Empire,' Eli Thompson muses to sneaky Agent Knox that everyone's "just tryin' to make a livin'," but if only it were ever that simple. With Nucky still coping with the death of Eddie, he's got other affairs to get in order -- namely his new business deal down in Tampa -- while back in New York, Chalky struggles with his headstrong new singer, Daughter Maitland.
FX's 'American Horror Story: Coven' may have the market cornered on unsettling Louisiana-style drama, but HBO's star-studded 2014 drama 'True Detective' may yet give the 'Coven' a run for its money. The new Woody Harrelson-Matthew McConaughey crime drama directed by Cary Fukunaga has released five brand-new teasers from the series, each as moody and dark as the ones that precede it.
In tonight's new episode of 'Boardwalk Empire,' there's plenty of trouble to go around when organized crime becomes disorganized and interrogations push men to be better, or push them right over the edge. "Erlkonig" is a pretty grim title for a majorly grim episode; if this is the calm before the storm, then there's one hell of a storm brewing in Atlantic City (and Chicago, for that matter).
