If you’re looking for a taste of the final season of Game of Thrones, the second season of Big Little Lies or the third season of True Detective – or even season two of Barry – check out the new teaser trailer from HBO below.
The first teaser for season two of HBO’s True Detective has dropped and it looks like it will be just as dark as season one.

Check out the teaser after the jump. […]
The last of the Directors Guild of America’s DGA Awards nominations were unveiled today. Once again, network television was shut out. Homeland directors were nominated for two episodes, Game of Thrones one and House of Cards one. The complete list of nominees follows the jump.
If there’s anything more confusing than a list of Emmy® winners, I’m not sure I know what it is.

The series has called into question various philosophies; the nature of the universe; the concept of fate, and whether a person’s character […]
HBO’s True Detective (Sundays, 10/9C) is something of an anomaly in American television – every episode was written by series creator Nic Pizzalotto and every episode was directed by the same director, Cary Fukanaga. It’s a unique vision that features some of the best work by its leads – Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. Which […]
True Detective is rapidly becoming one of my favorite new shows. As the above clip shows, it is setting the bar when it comes to being creepy/disturbing without the need for any supernatural elements – just working within the development of character and events surrounding a particularly strange murder investigation (or maybe the strange investigation […]
True Detective (HBO, Sundays, 10/9C) has turned out to be a deeply creepy series about two detectives working a horrifying murder in 1995 and having their brains picked about a similar murder seventeen years later. It features some of the best work in the careers of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. Follow the jump to […]
If you saw last night’s premiere of the stunning, creepy True Detective (HBO, Sundays, 10/9C), relive one of the episode’s creepiest, most haunting moments, after the jump (language warning: may be NSFW). If not, ‘ware spoilers! And check out an encore presentation of the premiere on Wednesday (10/9C). Plus, look for new, exclusive content at […]
