Game of Boners: Jaime Lannister Shops at Abercrombie & Fitch

We’ve seen Jaime Lannister do his share of terrible things: He shoved Bran Stark out a tower window, has had a decades-long sexual relationship with his sister and is broadly (if not wrongly) known as the most famous oath-breaker in the Seven Kingdoms. Still, nothing—NOTHING—could prepare me for yesterday afternoon… » 4/27/15 4:50pm Yesterday 4:50pm

Applauding a Convicted Rapist for Lip Syncing 'Push It' Seems Weird

I’m as indifferent to Spike’s new reality show Lip Sync Battle as I’m ambivalent about think pieces (which is to say very indifferent and very ambivalent), which is why I’m going to (disingenuously) phrase this as a question instead of a statement: Does Spike truly think it’s a good idea to have Mike Tyson, a… » 4/24/15 4:50pm Friday 4:50pm

So, Let's Discuss McDreamy

Grey’s Anatomy is a show that really likes to take it there, again and again. No storyline is too absurd. A cliffhanger about performing delicate surgery on a deer? Sure. Fave character happens to get a rare form of cancer? Why not. Everyone boning everyone boning everyone else boning your best friend in a closet or… » 4/24/15 10:05am Friday 10:05am

What About Jake? Here Is Your Scandal Open Thread

Olivia and (most of) the gang are back for this week’s Scandal episode entitled “Lady Sings The Blues” where they’re still angling to take down B613. Meanwhile Mellie is on the defensive against Sally as she climbs the grizzly ladder toward the presidency and Jake is lying down for a long, long, long time. » 4/23/15 8:55pm Thursday 8:55pm

Outlander's Ron Moore & Terry Dresbach on Tartans, Redcoats and KNITS

Mounting a period piece like Outlander means producing costumes. Lots and lots and lots of costumes. PILES of costumes. Costumes from not just the eighteenth century, but the 1940s, too. And don’t forget all the ensemble scenes like the clan gathering, which involve a whole shitload of extras, who cannot be naked.

Outlander: Are You Kidding Me Right Now With This Witchcraft Shit?

I found this week’s episode of Outlander draining and emotionally exhausting and personally I am ready to time-surf the centuries and turn the tables on some witch-hunting creeps. Queue to my left to join the misandrist time-traveling witch-hunter-busting vigilante squad. But at least we got a firelight fingering… » 4/20/15 7:20pm 4/20/15 7:20pm

Watch RuPaul's Queens Impersonate Big Ang, Little Richard and Adele

For RuPaul's Drag Race fans, the "Snatch Game" episode is basically our birthdays. Based on the old game show The Match Game—a choice which hearkens back to Ru's obsession with television of the '70s and '80s—each queen is tasked with impersonating a personality of their choice and competing in a fashion… » 4/14/15 6:15pm 4/14/15 6:15pm

A Chat with the Botched Doctors On the Alluring Sideshow of Hack Jobs

The first time I watched Botched, it was with equal levels of shock and shameful fascination. The premiere episode featured a woman with a lumpy uni-boob. Subsequent episodes: a woman whose ass implant flipped, a Justin Bieber wannabe, Janice Dickinson and a woman whose tragic tummy tuck had repositioned… » 4/14/15 4:00pm 4/14/15 4:00pm

Love Her/Hate Her: Welcome to Nurse Jackie's Final Season

It’s impossible to love Jackie Peyton; but then it’s impossible to hate her, too. And unlike many characters on television, the viewer’s perception of her changes not from season to season but from moment to moment, as she performs heroics but then destroys her own life and the lives of others. So let’s discuss what… » 4/13/15 6:30pm 4/13/15 6:30pm

NOOOOO: Veep Loses Show Creator Armando Iannucci

Armando Iannucci—the genius wit behind such works as In the Loop, The Thick of It and The Armando Iannucci Shows—is stepping down as showrunner on HBO’s Veep, the brilliant, Julia Louis-Dreyfus-starring political comedy that he created in 2012. He will be replaced by Curb Your Enthusiasm’s David Mandel. » 4/10/15 6:40pm 4/10/15 6:40pm

Veep's Timothy Simons: Jonah Is Living the White Male American Dream

Tune into HBO’s political comedy Veep and you’ll find that there are few—if any—heroes. Set in in Washington, D.C. and, more specifically, the offices of Vice President Selina Meyer (played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus), the show’s cast of characters are as cut-throat as they are inept. But even in this world of selfish—and… » 4/09/15 2:50pm 4/09/15 2:50pm
