Check this, there’s a new show on HBO called “How To Make It In America” that aired its first episode this past Sunday. The cool thing is, HBO uploaded the entire first episode on YouTube so everyone can get addicted (like me) quickly and early (the video is linked later in this post). For all the people who love Entourage, the producers of Entourage (including Mark Wahlberg) are in charge of the first three episodes of this show.
So what’s the show all about? It’s in the name. “How To Make It In America” follows two twenty-some year old dudes who try to make something out of their lives in the busy hard streets of New York City. Funny, it sounds just like any college student freshly graduated out of college in the real world. D. Hud, peewee, AP, Ron: how are Y’ALL gonna make it in America after graduation?
Here’s a nice video on the making and the details of the show:
But anyways, I really enjoy the show ‘cus it’s something like the show “The Wire”, but a little more watered down and not as crime-oriented (don’t get me wrong, The Wire is one of the dopest shows, EVER!). It’s got that urban feel to it, of course since it’s focused in NYC, and it’s extra entertaining. If anyone actually watched the video above, you’ll notice my dude Kid Cudi is pursuing a lil’ acting and has a role in the show, so that’s always cool to see. So without further ado, below is the season’s first episode in its entirety. It’s definitely a good watch and I hope this post will put you onto the show a little bit. Also, to my boys out there pursuing the right lady, Cam says a great quote in this episode: “He who hesitates, masturbates”. “How To Make It In America” airs on Sundays at 9:30 on HBO. I know we don’t have that in C-ville, but I’m sure people know a way to watch it online or download the episodes after they air. Enjoy!
Keep on keepin’ on,
