    Review: 'Girls' Tackles Abortion, Sex & STDs Head On With Heart & Hilarity

    Having already established in the premiere episode that the sex in "Girls" that sex in the show (at least for now) will often be uncomfortable and awkward, the second show of season turns up the cringe factor.

    Review: Armando Iannucci's 'Veep' Off To A Fast, Furious But Only Intermittently Funny Start

    In the midst of an election season, where politics in the United States seems to be more partisan than it ever has been, and riding on the back of the Occupy Wall Street movement that spread across the world last year, there is probably no better time for a political comedy.

    GAME OF THRONES RECAP 4: GARDEN OF BONES

    "Garden Of Bones" was perhaps my least favorite episode of "Game Of Thrones," period. The show has been such a success that seeing it struggle so much is a surprise. It’s still competent and watchable, but "Garden Of Bones" was frayed at the edges.
