Vinyl Season 1 Episode 1: Pilot

Every new HBO drama premieres to high expectationshigher, for better or worse, than any other network. And while the premium cable powerhouse has an insanely successful series in Game of Thrones, its identity as the go-to prestige programming hub is in flux (and, indeed, that may be purposeful on the part of the executives, since prestige has garnered more and more backlash in recent years from viewers searching for the next new thing, much like many of the characters in Vinyl). True Detectives second season was a critical flop. The Leftovers second season was television artistry at its finest, but  ...  Read More... //www.tvovermind.com/tv-news/vinyl-season-1-episode-1-pilot?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=vinyl-season-1-episode-1-pilot

Vinyl Review: Mick Jagger-Martin Scorsese Music Drama Rocks Hard

Sex, drugs, rock and roll three tried and true components to telling a classic story of debauchery and downfall, and three things HBOs new entry Vinyl relies heavily on. Luckily it works to a point. The series, which had a long gestational period in development, brings star power both in front and behind the scenes. Showrunner Terence Winter and director Martin Scorsese are back together following their Boardwalk Empire and The Wolf of Wall Street days, with Mick Jagger on board as an executive producer. In front of the camera Bobby Cannavale lends leading man credit as record producer Richie Finestra, while the likes of Olivia Wilde , an unrecognizable Ray Romano and J.C. MacKenzie flank him as his wife and business associates... //www.thewrap.com/vinyl-review-mick-jagger-martin-scorsese-music-drama-rocks-hard/

Vinyl Review: Martin Scorsese & Mick Jagger's HBO Series Rocks

On the surface, it may not seem the most appropriate Valentine's Day gift, but if you are as in love with rock'n'roll and storytelling from the likes of  Martin Scorsese , Mick Jagger , and Terence Winter , then HBO's Vinyl is a TV kiss you don't want to miss. Debuting on February 14 with a two-hour pilot directed by the Oscar winner, Vinyl , as I say in my video review above, literally and figuratively rocks.

Vinyl Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Record Man

Richie Finestra has always had a good ear. Way back in the '50s, before cynicism and blow took over, before he met Lester Grimes and became a manager. A lot has happened since then, and we've brushed through the very basics of it on Vinyl Season 1 Episode 1 . We learned enough in the two-hour premiere to know Richie has probably seen happier times, that he's a little jaded. On the cusp of selling his record company, American Century, Richie is coming to the realization that he's lost the passion he once had for the music. He's tossed it aside for success and fortune.   Read More...

‘Vinyl’ Review: Listen to the Music

In the new HBO drama series Vinyl, created by the impressive quartet of Mick Jagger, Martin Scorsese, Rich Cohen, and Terence Winter, record executive Richie Finestra (Bobby Cannavale) struggles with the direction of his record company, American Century. It’s 1973, and the face of music is changing rapidly. Though American Century was once at the pinnacle of the business, and Richie was the man to know in town, the label is searching for its new sound. It still has a handful of big talent names, but they want more, and are looking in every direction for a new hit. In fact, it feels like it could be a corporate board meeting for HBO in 2016.
