HBO Cinema Verite Preview – An American Family

Posted by ImaJustSaying on April 21, 2011


 

Cinema Verite is an upcoming American television film produced by HBO Films and starring Diane Lane and Tim Robbins. The film tells the story of the filming of An American Family, a 1973 PBS documentary television series that followed the lives of the Loud family. An American Family has been called one of the earliest examples of the reality television genre. Principal photography was completed in Southern California, with additional filming in New York City, in summer 2010. James Gandolfini and Kathleen Quinlan co-star in the film.   The film will debut on HBO on April 23, 2011.

The series was famous for not only capturing the idea of the American nuclear family in the early 70s, but for chronicling the members’ many problems — and even causing a few. James Gandolfini (one of HBO’s current heroes) stars as Gilbert, a guy who created an entire television genre. The Louds are played by Tim Robbins, Diane Lane, Thomas Dekker, Caitlin Custer, Nick Eversman and Justified‘s little Kaitlyn Dever. And in a casting stroke-of-genius side note, look for James Urbaniak as Dick Cavett.

An American Family presented the TV nation with divorce, homosexuality… real issues they weren’t seeing on popular sitcoms (um, The Brady Bunch) at that same time. In 2002, TV Guide listed the 12-episode series at #32 on their 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time.

HBO “The Ricky Gervais Show” – BOYZ sneeky peeky

Posted by ImaJustSaying on March 26, 2011


Do any of you folks appreciate Ricky Gervais or watched his HBO Show?    For those of you who don’t, let me catch you up to speed.

The Ricky Gervais Show is a comedy audio show in the UK starring Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, and Karl Pilkington, later adapted into an animated televised version debuting for HBO  in 2010. The show started in November 2001 on Xfm, and aired in weekly periods for months at a time throughout 2002, 2003, 2004, and mid-2005. In November 2005, Guardian Unlimited offered the show as a podcast series of 12 shows.  Throughout January and February 2006, the podcast was consistently ranked the number one podcast in the world; it appeared in the 2007 Guinness World Record for the world’s most downloaded podcast, having gained an average of 261,670 downloads per episode during its first month.  According to the BBC, by September 2006, the podcasts of the series had been downloaded “nearly 8 million” times.

Gervais and Merchant (despite Karl’s protests) filled the show with sexual innuendos, in which they used the term “cock” multiple times. During later shows both Gervais and Merchant pointed out that they got into trouble with the radio authority for using the word “cock”, the pair often joked how it was acceptable to say “cock” referring to the male bird but not say “cock” referring to a penis.  When Ricky brought in a tin of “Cock Soup” then he and Steve made obvious sexual innuendos about the soup, while maintaining they were referring to “cock as in the bird”, and later the two played with the name of philosopher Immanuel Kant and its obvious similarity in sound to the word “cxnt”.
