Abrams is said to be developing ''not your father's'' WESTWORLD. Looks like HBO's tackling sci-fi as well as fantasy.

Who cares what he has to say? He's nothing but a blatant liar and completely and utterly not worth listening to.

Re: HBO uhh.. THING yeah!

I really want not your father's sci fi HBO style.

And yeah, I would like Trek to go there but I'm happy with this never happening. Give me some other great sci fi.

Disappointed I only got one of those references in the video, the Girls one.

Is this why HBO is nicknamed Skinemax or something of that nature?

True Blood and Game of Thrones are the others, I believe.

I think Skinemax is Cinemax who are owned by HBO.

Personally, a lot of the time I find the gratuitous sex on HBO off-putting and quite often thrown in there to distract from storylines that aren't quite working or dull episodes that aren't really fullfilling any real purpose. So I'm not sure I'd want Star Trek on HBO, unless it was done more like Stargate was in the first few years.

Re: HBO uhh.. THING yeah!

Especially the sex.

I just finished power watching True Blood, I'm all good for gore until at least 2015.

Re: HBO uhh.. THING yeah!

There was a skit on SNL a year or two ago that was a pseudo-documentary about the making of Game of Thrones. There are two creative forces in charge of the show: A man who made sure that the show was accurate to the spirit of the novels, and a 14 year old boy. The 14 year old boy was the one who kept insisting on putting a lot of naked women everywhere.

All HBO shows are like that. Complex, intelligent storytelling and way, way more sex than is actually needed for the story.

"Skinemax" is a nickname for "Max After Dark", the late-night block of adult oriented programming (including softcore porn) on Cinemax
