Manipulation, resentment and deceit are the central conceits at the heart of this week’s Girls. Hannah attempts to be friends with Adam, and this overture is both genuine and disingenuous at the same time, highlighting the conflicting emotions that go into such well-meaning and painful post-break-up trials. And while Lena Dunham’s anxiety-ridden performance captures the vast array of emotions during this period, it’s Gillian Jacobs’ exceptionally complex performance as Mimi-Rose that ultimately steals the show, proving the hinge around which Adam and Hannah pivot.

Earlier today we caught the latest look at Game of Thrones Season 5 via two brief clips from the April 12 premiere, but the latest preview of HBO’s fantasy drama teases a much more fiery reveal. It looks like Tyrion will come face to face with Dany’s dragons, going by the first full poster for Game of Thrones Season 5!
Game of Thrones Season 5 won’t unsheathe its sword until April 12, and even with House of Cards Season 3 sating our fix for bloodshed and political maneuvering, the world of Westeros seems Winters away. No longer, as “The Sight” has revealed our first two clips from the newest Game of Thrones episodes!
Over the course of the last few seasons, the twentysomething girls of Girls have hardly changed at all, which makes them more empathetic, if a little frustrating — but only because, if you’ve ever been in your early 20s, you can see some of yourself in each of them. If insanity is repeating the same behaviors/actions over and over and expecting different results, then you might consider these women (and yes, the men, too) insane. But tonight’s episode brings some real signifiers of change, even if we remain skeptical.
Game of Thrones Season 5 remains tragically more than a month away, but the official Season 4 release on Blu-Ray and DVD helps balm such a gaping wound. While we wait for April 12, see a side of Game of Thrones you’ve never seen with the official season 4 bloopers and deleted scenes!
However brief the window may have been, we can officially say goodbye to dreams of John Oliver returning to host The Daily Show after Jon Stewart. HBO has officially locked down its breakout star for two more seasons of the acclaimed Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, bringing more belated-but-hard-hitting journalism through 2017.
At one point during this week’s episode of Girls, Hannah off-handedly describes the only way to solve a Rubik’s Cube: by taking the stickers off and re-sticking them in the proper arrangement. It’s such a casual comment, but one that easily defines the way Hannah — and her friends, and so many of us coming of age in our 20s — approaches problem-solving: by forcing things into the shape she’d like rather than doing the imperative work and navigation.
HBO’s Game of Thrones has cultivated an air that Season 5 will prove the most divergent yet from series creator George R.R. Martin’s literary works, yet the man himself can still be surprised. The Game of Thrones author recently teased that Season 5 will feature multiple character deaths not found in his novels, calling showrunners “even bloodier than I am.”
The upcoming end of FX’s ‘Justified’ will loose a tremendous amount of talent to the TV market, and HBO isn’t wasting time picking up one of the show’s biggest assets. Walton Goggins has joined the cast of Danny McBride’s ‘Eastbound & Down’ followup ‘Vice Principals,’ also adding ‘Agent Carter’’s Shea Whigham to a cast that’s rounding out nicely.
'Game of Thrones' season 5 won't arrive for at least two months, but HBO's latest preview gives us a closer look at the new episodes than ever before.
