It's not TV. And for a few more years, it's not Netflix either!

HBO has signed an exclusive deal with Netflix competitor Amazon Prime. The streaming service will be the only (legal) place on the Internet to offer full series runs of The Sopranos, The Wire, Six Feet Under, and more classic HBO shows.

Perhaps more importantly, Amazon will also be the first to offer new hits Girls, Veep, and The Newsroom, available three years after their initial air date- meaning we get the first few seasons of True Blood right now!

This is great news for Amazon, whose new Fire TV platform will also host HBO GO! It's less than great for Netflix, whose shares have already dropped 2.7% just from the announcement! Ouch!

You can binge all your HBO faves starting on May 21st!

You know, unless you only have Netflix.

Helena Bonham Outshines Lindsay Lohan As Liz Taylor? See The Clip HERE & Decide!!!

Is it time for a reboot already!?

Helena Bonham Carter apparently thinks so because she's portraying Elizabeth Taylor for the BBC in another biopic about her tumultuous relationship with Richard Burton!, and we have the footage that proves it!!!!

Ch-ch-check out the trailer for Burton and Taylor (above)!

Whoa!! Intense!!

We love us some Lindsay Lohan, but, let's face it, Liz & Dick was a debacle wrapped in a disaster covered in melted turds!!!

Plus, if there's one gurl in the world who knows what it's like to bang a dude with the last name Burton, it's HBC! She's been dating director Tim Burton since 2001!

Burton and Taylor, which also stars The Wire's Dominic West, premieres October 16th on BBC America.

Michael J. Fox Is Back To The Future On TV! See His HIGHlarious & Inspiring Sitcom HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsInspirationMichael J. FoxHealth

Awww!! If our hearts were any warmer, they'd melt polar icecaps!

NBC gave us a first glimpse of The Michael J. Fox Show and it looks AH-Mazing!!!

The Teen Wolf star teams with Breaking Bad's Betsy Brandt and The Wire's Wendell Pierce in this sitcom about a retired TV personality courageously returning to work after a Parkinson's disease diagnosis.

Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above)!

Whoa! Talk about hitting close to home!!

Since the early '90s, Michael J. Fox has done sooo much to raise awareness for the debilitating disease that affects so many.

We're continually inspired by his awesome ability to bring humor to such a delicate issue!

We can't wait to watch the show this Fall!

Liam Gallagher Acts Like An NME At Awards After-Party And Picks Fight With The Wire Star!

idris vs liam

We've known since the day Oasis formed that Liam Gallagher CANNOT get along with his bandmate and brother Noel!

But apparently, the rocker, who now fronts The Beady Eye, simply has difficulty playing nice with just about anyone!

EVEN bad-ass actors like Idris Elba, whom you may recognize from Luther and/or Prometheus!

According to reports, the pair got into a bit of pissing match with each other while attending the NME Awards after-party held at the Ivy Club in London, which almost resulted in a physical confrontation!

According to witnesses:

"Liam was in full rock 'n' roll swagger mode. He bowled up to the party after midnight and made his presence felt pretty quickly. He had a row with a Scottish actor called Martin Compston, mocking his accent. Then he had a few words with Idris, poking fun at his bobble hat among other things. Idris looked like he was going to flatten him - they were on completely different wavelengths. They were toe-to-toe at one point. Neither of them backed down. Idris was in a good mood, so left it, which was probably for the best. Liam left soon after."

Obviously, Liam has never seen Idris on The Wire, or we doubt he would have acted so foolishly!

But thankfully, there was one member of this party who was mature enough to step back before anything really escalated to a level of ugliness we think everyone can agree was better to be avoided!

What do U think?? Team Liam or Team Idris?!

Oh no, such a sad, sad thing to have to report.

The Wire is heralded as one of the best shows of all time, and we're sad to say that Robert F. Chew, who played Proposition Joe, has been found dead in his Baltimore apartment.

Jamie Hector, who played Marlo on the show, had this to say about his fallen friend:

HBO's Treme Will Get A Final Season!

Filed under: TV NewsEmmys

treme-will-get-final-season-on-hbo-web.jpg

Yay!!! We like it when TV shows can tie their stories together in a nice bow!

Treme creator David Simon has announced that his show will return for a fourth and final season.

Much like Simon's last creation, The Wire, critics LOVE Treme but audiences don't; season two averaged only 500,000 viewers per episode.

Actress Khadi Alexander says the following on her show's conclusion:

David [Simon] has made it clear that he wants a conclusion, and it is my understanding that, as of today, we're very close to being able to have a conclusion — and I'm looking forward to that.

Season three of Treme premieres tonight after the Emmys at 9 pm EST.

The Wire Returns In Musical Form? Sheeeeeeeet!

Filed under: TV NewsBroadway BabiesEtc.

The Wire was must-see TV, no doubt — but a certain element was always missing.

Levity? Optimism? Hmmm… No.

HBO’s critically-adored drama lacked CHOREOGRAPHED MUSICAL NUMBERS!!

Thankfully, Funny Or Die presents The Wire: The Musical, a HIGHlariously brilliant remedy!
