“It’s not tv, it’s HBO.”

HBO series you MUST watch on HBO NOW or Amazon Prime.

HBO series

You know I love tv! One of my favorite channels is HBO. HBO has been producing killer content for close to 20 years now. They changed the game in regards to tv comedy and drama. Not every one grew up with it as part of their cable package, but today it is easier than ever to get HBO programing right to your tv without a cable or satellite tv package.

HBO NOW

“HBO NOW is the standalone streaming service that gives you all of HBO—no TV package required.” To get access to past favorites as well as current blockbuster series, you simply go to HBONOW.com to sign up for a free month, then 14.99 a month after, which you can cancel anytime. You can watch tv series, movies, documentaries, stand-up comedy, and sports! You can stream through your smart tv, game console, phone or tablet, and computer. They make it so easy! read more

Top 5 TV Shows of the Fall Season

Top 5 TV Shows

Last fall I told all my lovely readers about 10 shows to watch, 5 returning shows and 5 must-see new fall tv shows. I thought I would revisit this post and let you know what I thought of the new shows.

1. The Affair

My hands-down favorite, favorite new show of the season was Showtime’s The Affair, recent Golden Globe winner for best drama and best actress for Ruth Wilson. If you haven’t seen it, you must check it out. You will be hooked from the first episode. The Affair is the recounting of a summer affair between Wilson’s character, Allison, and Noah, a family man from New York City who has come out to Montauk for the summer. The story is first told from one point of view at the beginning of the episode and from the other in the latter half of the episode. The acting in this show is astounding. There are a few other storylines weaved into the telling of the affair. It has been renewed for season 2 and I am more than excited!! read more
