Today’s Sesame Street is brought to you by the letters H, B and O
August 13th, 2015 under HBO. [ Comments: none ]

A day after it was rumored that PBS cut Sesame Street’s episodes down to a half hour from a full hour, HBO announced that they picked up the Educational show for 5 more seasons. Nine months after the episodes air on the pay cable network, they will be available to PBS free of charge.
The really great news about the move is that they Sesame Workshop can produce twice as much new content as they did in the past. If that news isn’t good enough, then how about the fact that they will be producing a Muppet spinoff series as well.
It is a definitely a sunny day on Sesame Street and for HBO too.


John Oliver talks about sex…education!
August 10th, 2015 under HBO. [ Comments: 2 ]

Sex education has been an important part of my life. I can still remember the first time a teacher taught me about it in 5th grade. I remember in 10th grade, kids would hand me their questions that they were too embarrassed to ask in class. When I was in college, I handed out on condoms in the breezeway and gave demonstrations on safer sex. In my adult life, I spent a few years working for a nonprofit that assisted Hollywood with sexual health issues. I know it is important, but others think if we sweep it under the rug it will go away. Sex has been around since the Adam & Eve, and it ain’t going away as much as people want it to. Yet, many parents can’t talk to their kids about it. To make matters worse, they don’t want schools to talk about it either. So where are they are going to learn to protect themselves?
Yesterday, John Oliver took on that issue on his HBO show Last Week Tonight and he elaborated about it better than I ever can. The way he talks about it makes sense, the way I express it comes out with anger. How can states tell kids, it is not OK to be gay? Or tell them that abstinence is the only way. It is the best way, not the only way. We need to protect the next generation. Because let’s be honest how many of you waited until your wedding night? How many of you were prepared for your first time? Don’t you want your loved ones to know how to use a condom, so that their risk of an STD and/or pregnancy is greatly reduced. What happens if you don’t talk to your kids about sex? I don’t maybe something like what allegedly happened to The Duggars.
I am not saying that kids should have sex, I am saying they should be aware of their options. Talking to kids about sex doesn’t mean that they are going to run to do it. It just means they will be prepared when they do.

HBO renews Game of Thrones for not one, but two seasons!
April 8th, 2014 under HBO. [ Comments: none ]

Just two days after the season premiere of Game of Thrones was the most watched show on HBO since The Sopranos’ finale, the network announced that they picked up the much buzzed show for 2 more seasons. Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming, said, “Game of Thrones is a phenomenon like no other.” That is putting it midly. How many people were seeing red after The Red Wedding?
Wonder if the Dragons had something to do with the two season renewal? I wouldn’t mess with them.
BTW now that the show will be around for a fifth and sixth season, I think I will finally binge watch it on HBO Go. That is if I can get on the App that seems to crash a lot.


Cinemax unplugs Skinemax
October 8th, 2013 under HBO. [ Comments: 2 ]

Everyone bow your heads down for a moment of silence because Variety is reporting that Cinemax is cleaning up its act.
Most horny teenagers, lonely people and frustrated married couples who can’t sleep in the middle of the night, find themselves tuning to Cinemax for the soft core p0rn movies. It is a right of passage for teens and the only reason to subscribe the movie channel. But cum 2014 that is all going to change.
Michael Lombardo, HBO’s president of programming, told the trade, “The hope is that I don’t hear ‘Skinemax’ any time after our original programming — what I’ll call the primetime originals — start to really take over the (lineup).”
Nooooooooooooooooooooo. WTF is he thinking? That is Cinemax’s staple. It has been there since the network was just a baby. It is what the people want. I mean how many times have you been lying in bed, too lazy to get up and go to the computer, and put on Skinemax to help you have sweet dreams. And now this guy is taking that away from us. Why? Did he not get to experience all that the network has to offer him. Does he thinks Girls turns on anyone sexually besides the less that the million people that watch that overrated show every week.
We want our soft core p0rn! We deserve our Skinemax! What do we want? Sexless sex! When do we want it? After midnight! What are going to do if we don’t get it? Unsubscribe! And boycott those programs he thinks will turn the network around.
So tonight and every night for the rest of the year, grab your tissues and toys, put on Skinemax and let him know we want it, we want it real bad.
Save our Skinemax!!!
