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.

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

I can't believe "Girls"' third season starts in less than two months.
