Vice

I’m a big fan of the HBO incarnation of Vice, and with a second season having recently started, I’m again enjoying watching reports on stuff that, well, you just don’t usually see covered by regular news outlets. And I say enjoy, but it’s more constant outrage, like with the report on slavery in Pakistan from the second episode. Makes me so angry, but I am thankful that they are covering this sort of stuff.

NHL Revealed

After the all-too-short 24/7 series ended I was hoping we could get more, and this is pretty much what the 7-episode NHL Revealed series. It’s pretty much just as good as the HBO show, except that we don’t have the great Liev Schreiber narration. Oh, and I wish there was more Habs coverage.

24/7 Red Wings/Maple Leafs: Road to the NHL Winter Classic

I really love this series. I’ve watched the previous 2 seasons they’ve done, and if anything, really wish that it was a year-long thing that followed multiple teams, and not just this short 4-episode run that we get. It’s an HBO reality series that follows the 2 teams that will face each other at the January 1 outdoor Winter Classic match, and really tells a great story, showing the ups and downs of life at home and on the road. It’s really entertaining when they present the games themselves, as their mics pick up what the players are saying on the ice. Makes the games feel more real and intense then what you usually get.
