    Tony Hale Talks Being a Body Man in 'Veep' and the Return of Buster Bluth

    The Washington staffers in "Veep," the first American TV series from "In the Loop"'s Armando Iannucci, are a caustic, backstabbing lot, forever scheming to advance themselves or at least hold off the underlings gunning for their jobs. All of them, that is, except for Gary, the starstruck aide played...

    Rhymes with Shmashmortion: 'Girls' Takes on the A-Word

    "Girls" has been generating so much furious discussion about portrayals of race and diversity on and behind the screen that what felt like it could have been a provocative topic when watching the first three episodes of the show all together at SXSW actually seems a lot more mild in comparison.

    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.
