Yep, Ballers Will Be Every Dude's New Obsession

A nation of dudes wiped off their dried up Entourage spittle and tuned in to the premiere of HBO’s Ballers, which stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Spencer Strasmore, a retired Miami Dolphins player turned financial advisor. Broke athletes, with a side of tits, is what it is, and it’s likely to be every football… » 6/22/15 2:10pm 6/22/15 2:10pm

John Oliver's Internet Misogyny Rant is Satisfying As Hell

Yesterday on Last Week Tonight, John Oliver devoted 16 full minutes to the topics of vicious, misogynist online harassment and revenge porn, the difficulties of stamping them out, and the absolutely unacceptable responses from authorities. The whole thing culminates in a parody of an early 90s AOL ad. It was pretty… » 6/22/15 9:00am 6/22/15 9:00am

Game of Boners: Oh Snow, They Didn't

We’ve reached the end of Season Five of Game of Thrones, and what a slow and meandering journey it’s been! Looking back on the past ten episodes, doesn’t it feel like we watched too much talking and not enough stabbing? (Oh, god. It’s like Frasier all over again.) Doesn’t it also feel like the showrunners owed us a… » 6/15/15 9:00am 6/15/15 9:00am

Entourage Is So Bad It Put Us in a Terrible Mood

7

On Wednesday, June 3, the feature length version of HBO’s Entourage was unleashed on America’s movie theaters like the cinematic equivalent of a venereal disease (hyped, preventable, and the uncomfortable manifestation of an activity—in this case, watching a weekly half hour sitcom about Hollywood dickwads—that you… » 6/10/15 2:30pm 6/10/15 2:30pm

Game of Boners: Lost Minds, Lost Virginities

Oh, hey there, daughters of the Harpy! Did you think Game of Boners forgot about you? That we were gonna leave you high and dry? No way! I—QUEEN HARPY—just needed Memorial Day off to lie in the sun and sip on some of Cersei’s special sangria. A tip from the queen herself: replace the fruit chunks with more wine. And… » 5/26/15 4:15pm 5/26/15 4:15pm

Southern Rites: A Small Town's Inability to Acknowledge Its Own Racism

In 2009, photographer Gillian Laub published a series of photos documenting the high school proms in the tiny Georgia community of Montgomery County, which was remarkable because the proms were racially segregated. Though the students grew up together, played together, and went to Montgomery County High together,… » 5/19/15 4:00pm 5/19/15 4:00pm

HBO Cocks Head, Shrugs, Casts Jude Law as an American Pope

In the upcoming series The Young Pope, Jude Law will portray an Italian-American pope named Pius XIII. Hmmmm. Let’s take a few moments to deconstruct that first sentence. “In the upcoming series The Young Pope...” —OK, so there’s going to be a series about a young pope, got it—“... Jude Law will portray an… » 5/18/15 2:00pm 5/18/15 2:00pm

Sophie Turner 'Loved' Sansa's Game of Thrones Wedding Night Scene

This post contains spoilers: On last night’s Game of Thrones, “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken,” Sansa finally married Winterfell’s most eligible sadist, Ramsay Bolton. The setting of their nuptials—at night, in the woods, as it snowed—made it abundantly clear that this would not be cause for celebration, and that sense of… » 5/18/15 9:30am 5/18/15 9:30am

Game of Boners: Enter Stoneman

Belieb it or not, we take our television recapping pretty seriously at The Muse via Jezebel dot com. Our goal, typically, is not to simply regurgitate the plot of a television episode that you’ve already watched, but to talk about theme, how things fit together, and ideally provide some insights that you maybe haven’t… » 5/11/15 3:00pm 5/11/15 3:00pm

Will the New Kurt Cobain Doc Spur More Sexist Hate for Courtney Love?

I DVR’d Montage of Heck and watched it a day after it premiered on HBO. I waited partly out of dread. Everything I’ve read about the Kurt Cobain documentary cast it as the most through and fascinating depiction of him ever—largely due to unprecedented access to home movies, journals, and a clutch of his Dr Demento- » 5/06/15 8:00pm 5/06/15 8:00pm
