    Gave up on it for a while, but went back to it, pretty good, but not great.

    I watched the entire season when it aired. It was enjoyable. I typically don't like Jack Black but he was tolerable. The Secretary of State character was the best.

    I liked Ballers too. Glad they're making a second season of it. The Rock is the man.

    HBO has reversed its July decision to renew freshman comedy The Brink starringJack Black and Tim Robbins. The series will not be going to Season 2. “After evaluating our schedule and our programming needs, we unfortunately decided we cannot give The Brink the attention it deserves for a second season,” HBO said in a statement to Deadline. “We are proud of the first season and wish everyone involved in this show the very best.
