So while the rest of the world was binge-watching Arrested Development this past weekend, HBO premiered the “too gay for mainstream theaters”, Behind the Candelabra. The movie has become HBO’s highest rated flick in over a decade. We might know EXACTLY why. Sure, Michael Douglass as Liberace was pretty awesome. But it was Matt Damon, rocking bedazzled speedos and feathered hair, who stole our hearts—and other parts. Read More
Ros from Game of Thrones. Full frontal nudity in 3...2...1... Game of Thrones, the HBO series based on George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels, premiered in April 2011.

Pictured: the face I'm making right now.  Guys, we need to talk about this episode. Real talk. Help me work this through, because whoa, Nelly, am I having trouble doing it on my own.   Shoshanna confesses her misdeeds to Ray. Kinda. “I held hands with a doorman!” she exclaims. SURE, Shosh. We’ve all held hands with a doorman, ifyaknowwhaddamean. Ray thinks it’s cute and kisses her patronizingly on the forehead. Shoshanna is still filled with angst. I think. Read More
