What The Heck…HBO?



Yeah…it was entertaining the first 500 times I saw it…

Am I wrong…but isn’t HBO supposed to be a movie channel? Because I’ve been in enough hotel rooms the last month and the only thing they seem to be showing are the same epsiodes of “Entourage” and “True Blood”, which is an oversexed vampire show. Why is this?

I realize that “The Sapranos” was a huge hit and that now HBO is trying to ram it’s programming down our throats, but these shows, while entertaining to some degree, don’t really need to be on EVERY FREAKIN’ NIGHT. Seriously, I have not been able to turn the tube on without seeing one of these 2 shows at any given time after 9pm. And last night at 7 they had “Alvin & The Chipmunks” on. Which is about as entertaining as me poking my eye out with a hot prod.

So I don’t know who is doing the programming over there at HBO, but he or she isn’t doing a very good job. How many gazillion movies does that network have that they can air? But they choose to show the same shows over and over and over again? C’MON ALREADY! Give us something new!!! I can’t take one more episode of “True Blood” because it’s not really that great and watching someone spew blood and puke isn’t really that entertaining the first time…let alone the 3rd or 4th time!

How about a movie once in a while? Why is the trend to NOT show what you expect these networks to show? MTV? No videos. HBO? No movies. ESPN2? Uh…I don’t consider an infommercial on “how to tighten my abs in 30 minutes or less a day” sports. So if anyone out there is paying for these channels, it surprises me that there aren’t more people complaining! Of course, maybe this is what everyone wants. I dunno…

C’MON!!! I wanna watch SOMETHING!!!

Geezuz I hate t.v….

  1. That’s exactly why I stopped paying for HBO and got rid of it. I got sick of the same ‘ol stuff.

    I’ll bet you do have a lot of tv in the room time with all your travels. Bummer

    Yeah…that’s why I like Omni’s. They give me internet for free! So I can catch up on all my blog friends!

  2. I always have to give in and pick
    something on pay-per-view…

    I find myself doing that a lot also…

    First you hate radio, and now you hate tv. Pretty soon you’re going to be down to reading books and knitting sweaters for fun. Or answering chain e-mails. 🙂

    Knitting? Now there’s something I hadn’t thought of…

    True Blood sucks. Love the Vamp theme but it hanestly is just soft core porn….with less of a plot. Cajun accents are cool but that just isn’t enough to keep a viewing populace interested. Showtime….Dexter….Kicks ass….trust me…

    Still Nasty

    You could watch the news and get 24/7 why to pick Hillary for Secretary of State – or not. Also you got your 24/7 bailout. Yech……..I’m so sick of those talking heads telling us what we should do and why. As soon as Al leaves, I turn to channel 902 and listen to music while I paint or do my beads….or maybe clean the house. Wonder why that’s my last choice? LOL (I know what LOL means!!! Mandy told me!)

    I don’t have HBO for that reason, but now I’m going to have to get it because they’re making my favorite book into a series! Very excited! Sorry, Alan:)
