We Own This City
The Wire is, in my opinion, the best television show of all time! David Simon and George Pelecanos return to Baltimore in We Own This City, the follow-up to their critically acclaimed HBO series The Wire.
Gun Trace Task Force, an actual Baltimore Police Department unit and police corruption as a sign of a city’s institutional deterioration will be the focus of a new, limited-run documentary series. The cast includes Jon Bernthal, Josh Charles, and Jamie Hector. In this, Bernthal is a wonderful s.O.B.
Game of Thrones
Every sci-fi and fantasy enthusiast worth his salt needed to witness Game of Thrones, the flagship of HBO since season one. In a way that’s both cruel and humorous, terrifying and thrilling, and funny and action-packed, it’s a very unique experience.
Dragons, of course! ‘winter is coming,’ with its all-star ensemble that includes Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, and Peter Dinklage, is now available for streaming on HBO. Avoid becoming emotionally invested in your favorite characters, though.
Barry was last seen in 2019 on ABC Family. 2019! In Season 2, Bill Hader’s hitman revealed his actual self in a conclusion that saw Barry popping caps and Gene (Henry Winkler) discovering who Barry truly was – a murderer first, a community theatre performer second.
Season 2 saw the dark humor at its peak, condensing sorrow into one of the year’s best television shows. Compared to Season 2, the third season is much better.

As far as some of us are concerned, Michael Mann’s return to television after almost a decade is the most intriguing aspect of Tokyo Vice.

Rinko Kikuchi, Ken Watanabe, and Rachel Keller all star in the film. Adelstein is portrayed by Ansel Elgort.
History is woven into the story of Deadwood’s early days; most of the characters are drawn from real-life persons.

A great premise and the promise of seeing Jake Johnson’s chest hair in high-definition are just two reasons to see Minx.
