After being canceled, HBO is giving Hello Ladies a movie to wrap things up. I loved this show and saw no reason why it should have been canceled but I am happy that HBO is giving them more time in some fashion. Could this be a dark horse in the coming Emmy race for Stephen Merchant for Best Actor?
It will air Saturday, November 22ndNovember 10, 2014 at 12:47 am #338573
Saturday, eh?November 10, 2014 at 6:34 am #338574
Yeah it is odd that it is on a Sat. I guess with Real Time on Friday and Newsroom/Comeback/Getting On on Sunday I guess it is the only time it could fit inNovember 10, 2014 at 6:55 am #338575
Oh well, I’ll be watching it for sure.November 10, 2014 at 6:56 am #338576
There isn’t anything too odd about HBO airing an original movie on a Saturday.
Clear History premiered on a Saturday in 2013. As did Mary & Martha & Muhammad’s Ali Greatest Fight.
The HBO “dumping ground” is Monday nights.November 10, 2014 at 6:59 am #338577
Mondays are their documentaries. It is also odd that they wouldn’t do it the week after for a big post Thanksgiving boostNovember 10, 2014 at 7:06 am #338578
I meant for things like Doll & Em, not the docs. I don’t think they have high ratings hopes for this, so post-Thanksgiving probably wouldn’t make much of a difference? I’d be shocked if they didn’t marathon the series leading up to the premiere.November 21, 2014 at 4:36 pm #338579
Marathon tomorrow at 2 PM on HBO 2 before the movieNovember 21, 2014 at 5:16 pm #338580
pretty excited here!November 22, 2014 at 9:45 pm #338581
It was good. I think I would have liked it much better if it was broken up into episodes rather than a movie. Loved the Allison Tolman and Nicole Kidman cameos!November 25, 2014 at 8:30 pm #338582
It was mostly good but got a bit heavy. I wasn’t sure if merchant could handle the shift but he did well.November 26, 2014 at 4:59 am #338583
I thought this was pretty good, eventhough it went dark and cliche by the end, Merchant did fine with it, I felt he wasn’t too happy about ending the show too soon but I kind of enjoyed it, the theme is very heavy and was handled well in my opinion. That was definetely a show that makes you stop and think.
