“THE NIGHT OF” ON HBO WILL BLOW YOU AWAY

Last night we innocently turned to HBO to glance at a new series “The Night Of” – with no particular expectations. We knew Richard Price was one of the writers and he wrote our favorite movie “The Wanderers.” INSTANTLY we were sucked into the story about a young college age guy from Queens – the son of Pakistani immigrants – eager to go to a party in Manhattan. He has one of those magical nights in the city – yes, drugs and a beautiful girl were involved- and he lands in jail, charged with an unspeakable crime. He looks like a deer in the headlights. The viewer cannot help but identify with this innocent character and the nightmare around him. (Isn’t it everybody’s nightmare that they are accused of a crime and sent to prison for something they didn’t do?) The fact that there are no big stars to interrupt makes the story seem even more real. We can’t remember the last time we couldn’t WAIT for episode 2 of anything. Don’t miss this!

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
