Claire Danes says season 8 of Homeland feels like its last
June 13th, 2018 under Claire Danes, Showtime. [ Comments: none ]

Claire Danes was on Today and this morning and Willie Geist had to know if this is the last season of Homeland coming up? She told him, “I’m wondering too actually. There is no conclusive word about that.” Then she added, “It feels like it. It looks like it, but yeah, there’s still some kind of ellipsis. So, we shall see”

She also explained to the anchors that the filming of season 8 is delayed until the beginning of next year because her and her husband, Hugh Dancy, expecting baby #2. Therefore, a lot can happen between now and then.

If season 8 is it for Homeland, will you be all upset? Or like a time bomb going off the clock needs to reach 00:00? See I made a Homeland reference even though I do not watch the critical darling.

Kevin Smith’s Silent But Deadly will have you laughing for an hour straight
May 11th, 2018 under Kevin Smith, Showtime. [ Comments: none ]


On February 26th, Kevin Smith was doing two shows in Glendale and everything seemed normal until it was not. That was because, after the first show, he suffered a near-fatal heart attack. Thanks to pot, he survived and we get to see the first of those two shows that he did that night. Tonight at 9p, that special Silent, But Deadly is going to debut on Showtime and you don’t want to miss the show that almost killed Silent Bob. Since he didn’t die, I can say if he did, then he would have gone out on a high note.

The hour of stand up starts off with him telling us he let his daughter drive by herself for the first time by before he did the show. That is enough to give any parent a heart attack. Thankfully she got to her location OK, but it was scary for her parents.

Now that Harley Quinn is old enough to be on her own, her mom is ready to travel with her dad again. Their first trip is to Spokane and she leaves her husband to do his shows without her. She turns their room into a spa and he finds that out when he comes back to smoke a joint between shows. She tells him, she does not want to hear his storytime, but he tells her anyway. It was about the last time he smoked pot on a balcony and almost got caught by the police.

When it comes to his wife not watching his live shows, she also does not watch the ones he tapes. She has only seen two episodes of Comic Book Men and refused to let him watch it on his 103 inch TV that they have in their bedroom. How he got that TV is a story you do not want to miss.

When it comes to what his wife sees of him, she hates his maroon underwear. One day, while he is away, he surprises her by telling her he got black ones. The two have this great sexting conversation that ends with a text going to the wrong person. Whoops.

Then he goes from talking about sexting to talking about sex with his wife. She learned something about how long it takes her husband to ejaculate. Way too TMI, but funny as all hell.

Now that we are over the sex talk, he tells a great story about feeding the cast of crew of Supergirl when he was directing an episode. He went to A&W Burgers and ordered 20 his first night. The next night he went back for 40, but it was the third night that was the real kicker. That is when he ordered 70 burgers, 40 fries and a small diet root beer for himself. That caused the guy at the drive-thru to laugh out loud.

Now it is time for him to wrap up the show and he gives a powerful speech that anyone can do what he is doing. Not knowing that a few minutes later, he would be fighting for his life.

After he waves goodbye to the audience, the credits start to roll and he shows us the room where he had the heart attack. Like he said, it was not a pretty place to die and thankfully he did not.

I watch a lot of comedy specials and I shut most of them off within a few minutes. This one is one of the few I cannot wait to watch again. Make sure to check it because I promise you will not be dissapointed.

Roll the Andrew DICE Clay tonight on Showtime!
August 20th, 2017 under Showtime. [ Comments: none ]


Andrew Dice Clay’s series that is very loosely based on his life is back on Showtime tonight at 10:30p and it actually makes you like the controversial comic because he is so self-deprecating about himself.

On the season premiere of Dice, he meets a rabbi who shows him what life would be like if he never created his alter ego. Everyone but him is better off without the Diceman in their lives. But are the lives of his girlfriend Carmen (Natasha Leggero),his best friend Milkshake (Kevin Corrigan) and David Arquette really better without him? You do not want to miss this episode that shows what Andrew Clay Silverstein would be without comedy.

Then next week, you meet his manager (Cedric Yarbrough) who sucks at his job, and his stalker (Billy Gardell) who has moved on from stalking him. Dice cannot handle not having an obsessed fan and goes too far to prove that he is still stalking him.

On the third episode, Ron Livingston plays a role you have never seen him play before and I want to see him act like that more often. That is all I will say because it is something you need to experience for yourself along with the Tony Orlando performance!

They say what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. I am so happy this comedy did not stay there.

Matt LeBlanc admits he is a piece of 💩!
July 17th, 2017 under Friends (cast), Showtime. [ Comments: none ]


Showtime just released a preview of the final season of Episodes that debuts on August 5th and it is the 💩. That is because Matt LeBlanc, who plays Matt LeBlanc, on the Showtime sitcom gives his producers a huge stuffed 💩 as an I am sorry gift. Then he admits, “I’m a piece of 💩.” I do not know how much is him and how much is his character in this hysterical clip. I am going to say a little bit of both, what about you?

BTW I so want that stuffed 💩! Who wants to buy me one?

I’m Dying Up Here takes the stage tonight and wows!
June 4th, 2017 under Showtime. [ Comments: none ]


Before Jay Leno and David Letterman had their own talk shows. Before Robin Williams and Garry Shandling had their own sitcoms. They were performing at the few comedy clubs in Los Angeles just for the chance to be on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson and then being invited to sit on the couch. There was no Comedy Central nor Live at The Improv, so they didn’t have the opportunities they have now.

I’m Dying Up Here on Showtime at 10p is the story of comedians in Los Angeles during the mid-’70s trying to break it. They wanted to be the next Richard Pryor or George Carlin. Before they could do that, they all had to get past Goldie (Melissa Leo). She owns the hottest comedy club and she controlled their careers. You would start in The Cellar, then if she liked you she moved you up to the Open Mic Night. When she felt you were ready, she would move you to the Main Room. Just because you got the Main Room didn’t mean you would get a good time. It was all a game for no pay, but that didn’t matter as long as they had a willing audience who would laugh at their jokes.

Some nights they were a hit, some night they were not. But every night they had each other. There is Ron (Clark Duke) and Eddie (Michael Angarano), who just flew in from Boston and they are sharing a closet for $60 a month because that is all they can afford. They aren’t the only ones stuck in The Cellar, so is Adam (RJ Cyler). He gets a break from Goldie that moves him up. Cassie (Ari Graynor) is the only female, and they see her as a woman they are no longer interested in (as in sexually) as compared to being a woman. She has the most to prove and Goldie doesn’t care that she is a woman. Cassie is dating Bill (Andrew Santino), and he has his anger issues. Finally, there is Sully (Stephen Guarino), he is the furthest one of them all. He is a new dad and he desperately needs money. But he wants to be a comedian and there is no pay.

They are all living the dream in Hollywood during the ’70s and sometimes it can really be a nightmare. I’m Dying Up Here really catches that era and the struggling comedians of that time. If you love going to comedy clubs, then you are going to love the story before they take the stage.
