The “Game Of Thrones” Season 5 Trailer Leaked And It Is Excellent

A trailer leaked online, after airing last night alongside select IMAX screenings of "Game of Thrones" season four episodes, and let's just say that the…

A New “Girls” Trailer Is Here!

A new trailer for season four of "Girls" has arrived, and our favorite flailing anti-heroines look just as aimless and tone-deaf as ever -- and I guess we really wouldn't have it any other way, would we? The trailer also includes an excellent dig at Woody Allen in which Jessa recites his quote "the heart…

No, George R.R. Martin Hasn’t Finished The Song Of Ice And Fire Books Yet

Theories abound about George R.R. Martin’s plans for the Song of Ice and Fire series, and therefore the Game of Thrones series, but Martin says that the most ridiculous theory of all is that he’s actually finished with the last two books of the series and is sitting on them to create demand. At…

How Does Marriage Work? In “112 Weddings,” A Wedding Videographer Tries To Explain

I got married very quickly: we had only been dating for five months. I didn't doubt that I'd found the man I wanted to spend my life with, but I did feel confused in the weeks and months after we'd gotten hitched what marriage was supposed to mean and if so, how should we make it…

HBO’s “The Normal Heart” Visits The Start Of The AIDS Crisis

As a child of the '90s who learned about HIV in elementary school (from a puppet, I believe), sometimes it's difficult to imagine a world where HIV/AIDS was so misunderstood. There was once a time when people used the word "quarantine" when talking about this public health crisis. And it's painful to remember that i…

Hannah Twerks Against A Gravestone In The “Girls” Season 3 Trailer

I can't believe "Girls"' third season starts in less than two months. It feels like just yesterday that the show was making its debut to a chorus of equal parts "IT'S THE BEST THING ON TV EVER" and "THIS SHIT DOESN'T REPRESENT ME OR ANYONE I KNOW." So what's ahead for "Girls" in season three? More of…

We Swear It’s Not Porn! (NSFW)

When I was an actress, the worst part was telling my friends and family about the roles I was auditioning for -- or sometimes, had just booked. I'd be like, "I'm just got a horror movie with Gary Busey! I'm playing a vampire prostitute who gets shot in the head while playing cards with Morga…

The Dong Show: 10 Penises Featured On HBO

Last week, the girls of College Humor had a "boner" to pick with HBO about their lack of dongs. Whether they show them "in between the boobs" or on their own, they plead with the network to show us "an inch of grade A man meat" for every pair of breasts. A…

The “Girls” Season 3 Teaser Is A Bunch Of Instagram Photos That Tell Us Nothing

Sadly, HBO's new teaser trailer for "Girls" season three, made up of a bunch of Instagram-style photos from the set, tells us just about nothing in the way of plot points. Well, that's not entirely true; we know that Hannah and Adam will hug and that the whole gang will go to the beach. I…

Butts, Sparkles & Frozen Faces: The Best Tweets From HBO’s “Behind The Candelabra”

Last night, HBO premiered its highly-anticipated biopic, "Behind The Candelabra." It was gayer, grander and glitzier than any of us could have imagined. Michael Douglas and Matt Damon played their roles perfectly (as did Damon's butt), and who'd have thought that Rob Lowe would steal the show as Dr. Jack Startz?  Add too much botox on top of an already-gorgeous mug, and…
