how to make it in america pilot episode link

you downloaded the mixtape, now watch How to Make it In America, the latest offering from HBO, before it’s debut on Sunday

good to see former “The OC” hottie Samaire Armstrong get work.  you also got Finch from American Pie getting some nice screen time and i recognize the main character from Bride Wars….Pause….Scott “Kid” Mescuddi is about as good an actor as Saigon.  that being said, my expectations of the show were sort of that it would be an Entourage, before it ran out of ideas and set in NYC.  time will tell.  they’ve got good music on the show so far – I’ll keep watching with an open mind.

I could see how it going either way at this point, judging strictly from the pilot episode.

what do you think, anonymous chat roulette user?

Kid Mescudder dropped a mixtape to promote his new HBO comedy “How to Make it in America,” premiering this Sunday (which is Valentines Day or VD as they say in the industry). I know everyone’s been dying to fill their Sunday Night TV (SNTV) void and now there’s not even football. So I’m giving it a a shot

the 2010 tv hype guide.

There really is no excuse to be missing out on good television this year.

Before I even get into the plethora of incredible programs that will be airing in 2010, I should point out that HDTVs are selling for ridiculously low prices right now.  I bought this baby on sale last November for $700 (post-tax), and I ain’t exactly rich.  You can easily find good HDTVs for $400-500 right now, you practically trip over one deal on your way to the next.  And if you don’t need 120+Hz (if you don’t watch a lot of sports, you really don’t need 120+Hz) TVs, you might even find a good one at $300-350.  Point is, if you don’t have an HDTV, you really just don’t care about TV.  Which is perfectly fine.  Prioritize, you know.  But I’m saying, if you really are attached to your TV, there’s really no excuse to not have gone HD by now.

That rant considered, it’s also a great time for TV because there has been a considerable boom of great programming lately, often from places we least expect.  Hell, even DirecTV’s 101 Channel – accessible to all of six Americans – has dibs on ‘Friday Night Lights’.  There are a lot of great shows on, and there’s a great show for everyone out there.

Hit the jump to see what I’ve got my eye on for 2010.
