Andy Cush · 08/10/15 02:50PM

For true detectives, heaven is a place called Venezuela. Our time together is over for now, but it is not the end, fellow detectives, not unless HBO fails to pick True Detective up for a third season. Venezuela, detectives. I’ll see you there in two weeks.

Finally, the Orgy: True Detective Episode Six Explained

Andy Cush · 07/27/15 02:15PM

Have you seen Eyes Wide Shut? Great movie. Cool costumes, scary as hell, intense performance from Nicole Kidman. One of my favorites by Kubrick, though you may be hard-pressed to find many people who agree with me on that. Anyway, Ani Bezzerides is the true detective.

I play along with the charade/That doesn’t seem to be a reason to change/I feel so dirty when they start talking clues/Wanna tell them I’m a detective but I just get the blues/‘Cause she’s solving it with those eyes/Investigating with that brain, I just know it/I’m the true detective/And I wish that I had Jessie’s girl!

Silicon Valley Is Becoming a Documentary About Silicon Valley

Sam Biddle · 04/13/15 03:05PM

Accuracy is the best thing about Silicon Valley. Anyone who's spent any time in the Bay Area tech scene will wince at how well the show's writers have nailed the culture of nerd despair and hubris. This season, some of the jokes are so dead-on that it's hard to even consider them jokes.

Andy Cush · 04/09/15 02:58PM

Courtesy of HBO, here's your first glimpse of True Detective Season 2, a forthcoming television event based on a popular Twitter meme. True Detective's first iteration kept devoted fans guessing at the identity of the true detective until the final episode—and we can only guess the show's extremely likable creator will repeat that winning strategy the second time around. Who will be the true detective in True Detective Season 2?

Robert Durst Blinks Every Goddamn Time He Tells a Lie

Rich Juzwiak · 03/13/15 10:50AM

Robert "I Did Not Kill My Best Friend; I Did Dismember Him" Durst has admitted to lying several times over the course of HBO's magnificent docuseries The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst. (If you haven't been watching, what are you doing with your life? Go binge right now to catch up in time for Sunday's series finale.) He also maintains that he is innocent in the deaths of his wife Kathie Durst, his best friend Susan Berman, and his other best friend, Morris Black. Do not trust this man. If he offers you candy on the street, run the other away. If you find him hiding under your bed, burn down your house.

Black Dynamite Is the Best Show on TV You're Not Watching

Ernest Wilkins · 01/30/15 01:30PM

Black Dynamite is the best show on television. Since beginning its second season on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim back in October, Dynamite—an animated spin-off of the 2009 Michael Jai White blaxploitation send-up/homage movie— has depicted the following: Mister Rogers (you know, the army-trained killing machine-turned-children's show host?) using Waka Flocka Flame lyrics to train an army of child soldiers; Rev. Al Sharpton using the shocking content of Alex Haley's Roots ("I heard it was bad, but not THAT bad!") to convince the black community to enslave all white people in retaliation for not getting reparations; and Mr. Drummond from Diff'rent Strokes adopting a group of streetwise black children to compete in a Hunger Games-style tournament for an audience of bloodthirsty, affluent whites. Why are you watching Friends reruns again?

"Are We Making The Right Choice?" Asks Couple About to Fuck in Box on TV

Jay Hathaway · 01/22/15 05:25PM

Sex Box, the "tame, polite, slightly awkward at times and, overall, just dull" British TV series about couples having sex in a ... wait for it ... box, is finally coming to America. WE tv (which is apparently an actual network) has billed it as "the boldest show on TV" and promised "couples will have sex in this box for the first time ever." Good. Nobody wants to fuck in a used sex box.

TV Show Asks if It's OK for Some Jerk to Slap Someone Else's Asshole Kid

Jay Hathaway · 01/19/15 06:45PM

There's almost nothing that drives more internet outrage and ALL CAPS comments than a story about some dickwad interfering with the way other dickwads raise their insufferable, asshole children. A news story about a man slapping someone else's kid would be Facebook gold, so, because Facebook Gold is now the world's dominant reserve currency, NBC just took a fictional one and turned it into a miniseries.
