With music by Cliff Martinez, this original soundtrack features some of the most iconic and notable pieces from Cinemaxâ€™s exciting new drama series; The Knick. Directed by Academy AwardÂ® and EmmyÂ®-winning director Steven Soderbergh and set in New York City in 1900, The Knick centers on the Knickerbocker Hospital and the groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff who push the boundaries of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics. The newly appointed leader of the surgery staff is the brilliant, arrogant renegade Dr. John Thackery (Academy AwardÂ® nominee Clive Owen), whose addiction to cocaine and opium is trumped only by his ambition for medical discovery and renown among his peers. Soderbergh directs all 10 episodes of the series’ first season.

All men Must Die. But first, All Men Must Serve. In this thrilling fourth season based on George R.R. Martinâ€™s bestselling books, the Lannistersâ€™ control over the Iron Throne remains intact, but can they survive their own egos as well as the ongoing threats around them? While an unshaken Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army on Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister-loathing â€śRed Viper of Dorne,â€ť arrives at Kingâ€™s Landing to attend Joffreyâ€™s wedding. At the Wall, the Nightâ€™s Watch seems overmatched against Mance Rayderâ€™s advancing army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even more formidable foe. Whatâ€™s more, Daenerys Targaryen, accompanied by her fierce trio of dragons and an Unsullied army, is poised to â€śliberateâ€ť Meereen, the largest Slaver City in the east, which could provide her with an imposing force to execute her ultimate plan of reclaiming the Iron Throne for her family.
The LeftoversÂ® – As the First Season comes to a close, discover the inspiration behind HBO’s hit series with Tom Perrota’s critically acclaimed novelSeptember 16th, 2014
What ifâ€”whoosh, right now, with no explanationâ€”a number of us simply vanished? Would some of us collapse? Would others of us go on, one foot in front of the other, as we did before the world turned upside down?
In The Leftovers, thatâ€™s what the bewildered citizens of Mapleton, who lost many of their neighbors, friends and lovers in the event known as the Sudden Departure, have to figure out. Because nothing has been the same since it happenedâ€”not marriages, not friendships, not even the relationships between parents and children.
Kevin Garvey, Mapletonâ€™s new mayor, wants to speed up the healing process, to bring a sense of renewed hope and purpose to his traumatized community. Kevinâ€™s own family has fallen apart in the wake of the disaster: his wife, Laurie, has left to join the Guilty Remnant, a homegrown cult whose members take a vow of silence; his son, Tom, is gone, too, dropping out of college to follow a sketchy prophet named Holy Wayne. Only Kevinâ€™s teenaged daughter, Jill, remains, and sheâ€™s definitely not the sweet â€śAâ€ť student she used to be. Kevin wants to help her, but heâ€™s distracted by his growing relationship with Nora Durst, a woman who lost her entire family on October 14th and is still reeling from the tragedy, even as she struggles to move beyond it and make a new start.
With heart, intelligence and a rare ability to illuminate the struggles inherent in ordinary lives, Tom Perrotta has written a startling, thought-provoking novel about love, connection and loss.
At the Billy Barnes Extended Care Unit of Mount Palms Hospital in Long Beach, California, the staff attends to the needs of female patients who are often â€śgetting onâ€ť in years, while dealing with the challenges of a health-care bureaucracy in need of an overhaul. Even as they attempt to serve their charges under less-than-ideal circumstances, the lives of this ragtag crew are complicated by conflicting agendas, both professional and personal.
Getting On, based on the BBC series of the same name, and created for American television by the co-creators of the acclaimed HBOÂ® series Big Love, stars Laurie Metcalf (three EmmysÂ® for Roseanne) as Dr. Jenna James, who once hoped to become a medical-research star, but has instead been sentenced to purgatory at the facility. Her staff, including Alex Borstein (Family Guy), Niecy Nash (Reno 911!) and Mel Rodriguez (Community), blend outrageous humor with unexpected moments of tenderness.
The one-hour HBOÂ® drama series created by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) and executive produced by Sorkin, Scott Rudin and Alan Poul. Smart, topical, thought-provoking and highly entertaining, The Newsroom takes a behind-the-scenes look at a high-rated cable-news program at the fictional Atlantis Cable News (ACN) Network, focusing on the on- and off-camera lives of its acerbic anchor (Jeff Daniels), executive producer (Emily Mortimer), their newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel and others), news-division boss (Sam Waterston) and parent-company CEO (Jane Fonda). Season 2 will take place over a five-day period leading up to Election Day 2012, and will encompass numerous flashbacks to earlier events from 2011 and 2012. One of the seasonâ€™s major story arcs involves a wrongful-termination lawsuit made by a staff member alleged to have doctored a report about a suspicious U.S. drone strike. As details about the suitâ€™s origin and aftermath emerge, The Newsroom team continues its quixotic mission to â€śdo the news wellâ€ť in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles, and their personal entanglements.

Literal and creationist interpretation of the Bible is the fastest-growing branch of Christianity in the U.S. and around the world, with 46% of Americans believing the Genesis account of creation is the literal truth. Directed by award-winning British documentarian Antony Thomas (HBOâ€™s For Neda), Questioning Darwin takes an in-depth look at the views of creationist Christians, who reject Charles Darwinâ€™s theory of evolution, while also examining how Darwin handled the question of God as he developed his theory of natural selection in the mid-1800s. Featuring interviews with Darwin historians and biographers, ministers and creationist Christians, and Darwinâ€™s own words through his letters and writings, the film is a balanced examination of a 150-year debate, which has only increased in the last two decades with the rise of evangelical Christianity in the U.S. The film also illuminates little-known facts about Darwinâ€™s life, placing one of the greatest scientific minds in historical context. By turns thought provoking and infuriating, Questioning Darwin will inspire debate among believers on both sides of the issue.
