The Internet’s Best Misandrist ‘Entourage’ Takedowns

By

The boys are back, and the critics aren’t having it. A lot of things have happened since Entourage, the show, came to an end. One of those things was the cultural ascendance of feminist criticism and ironic misandry, a zeitgeist which somehow doesn’t fit in very well with Vinnie Chase and his posse’s unrepentant skirt-chasing.

Never have I felt prouder of this media sea-change than I am this week, as the cultural and film writers of this great nation take out pens and savage the Entourage film with the best anti-bro disses they can muster. A sampling follows.

How I Got Addicted to ‘Entourage,’ a Voyeuristic Show About Entitled Assholes

By

In anticipation of the June release of its unnecessary big-screen adaptation, I binge-watched the entire Entourage television series. I feel horrible about watching eight seasons — 96 episodes — of HBO’s Ed-Hardy T-shirt of a television show, but I feel even worse about what I discovered toward the end: There was actually something strangely comforting about the entire process.

10 Famous TV Showrunners’ Biggest Regrets

By

With all the vainglory and self-promotion festering on the Twitter frontier, we gotta say it’s refreshing when people use their 140 characters for humble purposes (notwithstanding the fact that the existence of a singular selfless tweet has yet to be confirmed). A fine example of this would be last weekend’s cavalcade of TV showrunner remorse, incited by Damon Lindelof’s, “The weather in LA this week has been as consistent as the third season of LOST.” Bill Lawrence stepped up next, tweeting, “Many, many episodes of Scrubs sucked balls” and “Cougar Town’s first six eps made me sad.” Then Shonda Rhimes came forth, confessing that Seasons 4 and 5 of Grey’s Anatomy make her “want to hide in a dark cave and maybe change my name.” Which actually had us feeling bad as one can for famous rich people, and then scouring for other confessionals like these.

Which HBO Series Has the Creepiest Sex Scenes?

By

Girls is a hyper-realistic comedy set in present-day New York. Game of Thrones, by contrast, takes place in a fantasy world of castles, dragons, and knights. But they both have one thing in common, aside from the fact that they both air Sunday nights on HBO: creepy sex. Their strange convergence got us thinking about how often we come away from an evening of high-quality premium cable feeling a bit scarred by all the bizarre sexual contact we’ve witnessed. To try and quantify the damage that’s been done to our impressionable minds, we’ve ranked ten of its best-known series to determine, once and for all, which HBO show has the creepiest sex scenes. Let us know if you agree.

10 Incredibly Awkward TV Sex Scenes

By

Sex on television can be fairly unrealistic. For instance, it’s not possible for someone as cute as Zooey Deschanel to bomb with someone as equally cute as Justin Long (see New Girl episode #8). That said, the bottom line rings true: sex isn’t always pretty. Time and time again we learn that scented candles and starfish lingerie straps prove useless in diffusing the awkwardness of human intimacy. Which is why this Valentine’s Day we’re cutting through the hoopla and spotlighting some of the biggest romantic misfires in television history (no pun intended). And since we’re not total curmudgeons, we’d like to point out that, sometimes, bad sex is beautiful. It can blossom into true love, bring a couple closer together, or even save a friendship. Just click through and see for yourself. And be sure to add your own favorite awkward couplings in the comments!
