I've been watching the HBO series Westworld and am interested in reading writings applying critical theory to the depiction of race in the show (including race/gender/orientation intersectionality). Everything between pop-culture articles/tweets/Tumblrs and academic papers is welcome. PoC authors especially preferred.
In this interview with Julia Louis Dreyfus, she talks about how the TV show Veep moved its filming location from Baltimore to Los Angeles. Halfway through, she says, "We never shot anything exterior during the day in California to stand in for the East Coast because the light is so different there." Having recently moved from Baltimore to Los Angeles myself, I'm curious - what does she mean?
I'm trying to remember an HBO series that was mentioned on AskMe recently. It lasted for only one season, and had to do with romantic relationships and marriages (I think) and was a character-study sort of show. Help?
How realistic is the portrayal of the media's coverage of the prison on Oz? (No spoilers in the question, potential for some in the answers.) [more inside]
I am very much enjoying HBO's In Treatment. I was amazed by the number of episodes in each season and then learned it was originally broadcast daily on week nights. How was this managed in terms of filming, cast availability etc.? Was it filmed entirely ahead of broadcast, as I understand HBO series tend to be? it seems unmanageable and risky otherwise.
Game of Thrones: I haven't read the book, but I've been watching the HBO t.v. series. Do the long winters occur only on the Westeros continent? Or is it assumed that the long winters impact both Essos and Westeros, and/or is the result of some global phenomenon? [more inside]
I loved the HBO mini series Band of Brothers, John Adams, The Pacific and Rome. Can you guys recommend any movies or TV shows that are similar. Thanks

Anyone know who does the theme song on this season's (season 4) The Wire? Damn it's good.
There was a show on HBO that came on AFTER Arliss that I remember loving. I've been trying to figure out what this show was by searching the internet and asking around to see if anyone else remembers it. I remember it was a comedy, but I don't remember the name or anything about it! [more inside]
My cable company offers On Demand movies and shows. The free content works fine. It also claims to offer premium channels' On Demand offerings, but those are not working. What can I do? [more inside]
As a lay...very lay...student of Roman Republic and Empire, and anticipating the upcoming HBO/BBC series Rome with relish, I'm reading everything I can get my hands on about both Republic and Empire. Currently I'm reading an abridgement of The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire I just inherited. What next? [insert Latin for "more inside" here].
SixFeetUnderFilter: What kind of dog was in last night's episode?
Anyone know where I can find some good discussion/analysis about last night's fantastic episode of The Sopranos? alt.tv.sopranos is full of people who hate the show, and the posts to TWOP's forum are always way too long for me to get anything useful out of them.
