'Bored to Death' is Full of Listless Ironynew

Since HBO's genuinely funny Flight of the Conchords is likely gone for good, the network could really use some original programming with a goofy sense of humor. Unfortunately Bored is far too smug and weak-willed to actually be funny, but at least it's sometimes light on its feet and has few pretensions to profundity.

HBO's Hung Blows Its Load All Over the Motor Citynew

Funny how your city's landmarks take on an entirely different symbolism when an HBO series called Hung slaps its name alongside them.

HBO's 'Hung' Mines Human Emotion from a Big, Purple Veinnew

New Orleans could get a proper prime-time spotlight with David Simon's Treme, whose pilot shoot wrapped earlier this month. Now all HBO needs to say is "go."

'The Life & Times of Tim' is the Only Good New Show on TVnew

This is one of the more quintessentially HBO shows to air on the cable network in a while: Its style is highly specific, and it's designed to appeal not to a common denominator in comedy viewing but to people who are looking for the opposite.

The Party Never Ends; 'Entourage' Never Changesnew

Everything you probably need to know about Entourage can be summed up in the fact that the show's been off the air for a year and it doesn't feel like it's missed a week.

The Boys of 'Entourage' are Back in Action, Almostnew

In the season opener of Entourage, Vinnie Chase finds himself in jail--a free-floating party jail with joints by the fist-load, gorgeous girls at the ready and, as always, the loyal buddies who follow him everywhere--this time behind the figurative bars of Hollywood prison.

Was Roman Polanski a Pedophile?new

Along its winding road to crucifying the American judiciary, Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired grinds some very blunt axes, makes some dizzying leaps to judgment and does a lot of silly editing with movie clips.

'Generation Kill' Author Evan Wright Talks Ass Time, Crack Highs and Why Roadblocks Killnew

Wright, who wrote parts of the script and was involved in other aspects of the production, has invited me over before the series debut for a private screening. But though we started the show more than a half-hour ago, we haven't gotten very far -- five minutes in at best. Despite apologetically promising to let me watch, Wright keeps pausing the DVD to offer behind-the-scenes tidbits that suddenly evolve into fascinating non sequiturs and counterintuitive spiels about the war. I'm not complaining.

Roman Polanski Finally Gets His Due in This Penetrating Documentarynew

Polanski, in life, has been as fascinatingly enigmatic as his films, with a personal back-story capable of trumping even his most bizarre fictions, and now it's all dredged up in Marina Zenovich’s HBO documentary.

A New HBO Series Puts the War into Perspectivenew

After HBO snatched up the rights to Evan Wright's best-selling 2004 book about his experiences embedded with a squad of First Recon Marines during the early weeks of the Iraq War, he met with The Wire's David Simon and Ed Burns. The resulting seven-part miniseries, says Wright, is very similar to his own experiences.
