    So glad Boardwalk Empire is coming back so soon...

    by Judge Briggs

    I was afraid that we would be waiting for that one like The Sopranos... That show took FOREVER to debut a new season!

    Boardwalk and eastbound

    by Caleb Hellegers

    I too am pumped for "Boardwalk Empire" coming back. Though i was still pretty bummed that the rest of the show wasn't shot like Scorsese's pilot. I think they missed out on an oppurtunity. I'm a huge "Eastbound & down" fan, while I think Louie stole the second season's thunder (that and it just wasn't as good as the first), I can't wait for the climactic third season. It'll probably be next summer though. As the last 2 seasons were spring/summer

    no shit, where's Kenny fucking Powers?

    Boardwalk Empire is freakin awesome!

    by GravyAkira

    This season should be nuts. Come on 1920's Chicago!

    Angry Boys

    by Judge Briggs

    Good question, when is that making a debut? Would be a good idea to premiere in front of BE!

    How To Make It In America

    by professorjack

    so maybe the 2nd season i can actually make it through an entire episode of that boring shitty ghastly show

  • July 29, 2011, 4:23 p.m. CST

    I have a new plan!

    by daggor

    After the latest seasons of Hung and Bored to Death have run, I'm canceling my subscription to HBO!

    Kenny Powers

    by Hercules

    The guys who write "Eastbound," Danny McBride and Ben Best, decided to turn their attention to the big screen. They were the fellows who scripted the period stoner comedy "Your Highness."

    No love for Bored to Death?

    by sunwukong86

    Just noticed a weird bug. I was not even logged in, but apparently i could edit and disapprove comments, and blacklist users! I almost disapproved Herc's comment above, but decided not to be a twat. Herc, how about you tell the AICN web guru to check his code.

    Love this show. Just wish it were an hour long.

    Cookylamoo & Tyler, too!

    by Henry Fool

    I like 'Hung' and don't need an excuse to watch it. But remember, in Season One, when Lenore asks Tanya, "Will he lick my ass?"<br /> <br /> I can't say, "YES" for every woman I've ever slept with but, in her case, I would gladly perform the duty of tongue fucking her booty. Sorry, if that's too crass but she is just yummy.<br /> <br /> I just can't get into "Bored To Death". Maybe if I started watching it from the beginning. It has some humorous moments but it just doesn't WOW me. But between "Boardwalk Empire","True Blood", "Game of Thrones" and "Hung" HBO has four shows dipping into my favorite genres, violent period piece, Sci-Fi/Fantasy (still waiting for HBO to make a great sci-fi show), vampires and edgy comedy. They've more or less recovered from that horrible era when "Rome", "Deadwood" and "Carnivale" all got cancelled before their time. I don't think I'll ever fully forgive them for that.<br /> <br /> But with "Dexter" about to debut on Showtime, it's a really good time for made-for-cable series. The networks just can't compete.

    sunwukong86... I love BTD..!

    by workshed

    It's a class act that I hope runs for a long time. Nice one HBO.

  • OK, but what were they doing for the other 51 weeks of the year?

  • July 30, 2011, 1:10 p.m. CST


    by Flippadippa

    I appreciate the fondness everyone has for Deadwood, but if you ask Hoffman or Nolte or anyone else involved in Luck, I bet they say they're there because of Michael Mann

    by IceySpoons

    no love for the executive producer of the show?

  • July 30, 2011, 11:34 p.m. CST

    Wait, Hung was renewed for another season?
