Dont tell me HBO canned this before it even aired.
I will find and kill someone there, i will! :cry:


Hey OWD. Long time no see. Hope life has been treating you well there.

Nope, not cancelled as far as I know. Guys begin filming in March sometime, which will take around four months. No exact dates, but thats the info I've been given about it all :)

Hi Sherry and everyone else.

Things are....................... ok
I thought the date had past and HBO did what it does best, pass up or end a great idea.

Awesome to hear its in the works and still coming.

It'll get there. 12 episodes for you.

Its supposedly being filmed with single camera format. I guess much like the radio series, it'll have the realistic feel to it. My only concern is the guys are working with a script. I kind of liked the idea of improvising like they did for the BBC show, but I guess you can't do that for a 12 part series due to air on HBO :lol:

And ok, better than not ok OWD :) Hope things are looking up for you from ok to good? Better? Vastly improved?

I'm sure even though they're using a script there will be plenty of ad libs. HBO would be stupid not to give them some liberties.

I'm really hoping this gets shown in Australia, otherwise I will be absolutely devastated... *crosses fingers in hope*

I saw three promos for their HBO show last night. :woohoo:

One with Arj Barker and some interview stuff with the guys, plus a look at the taping of a few scenes.

The next was the guys and Rhys discussing how you don't get involved with a mate's girl. A love triangle or square would occur?

The last one of the evening was the best, in my opinion. They were sitting on a sofa explaining how they are the characters "Bret" and "Jemaine." The bit was very cute and silly.

So, if anyone is wondering if the show is going to go well or not, I'd have to say: "Really Well!" :dance:
