Is Grey's Doc Unsympathetic? When Has Flash Seen Superman? Iron Fist Literally Stinks? And More Qs!

24 March 2017 10:34 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Bates Motel, The Flash, Empire and Grey’s Anatomy!

1 | Could Iron Fist‘s Danny have been any more inept, any slower, in convincing Joy and Ward of his identity? Also, after several days wearing the same dingy clothes — and that was on the heels of his long journey back to America — how riiiiipe was Danny smelling by the time Joy found him on her pristine office couch?

Girls Season 6 Episode 6 Review: Full Disclosure

19 March 2017 10:49 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

There was a lot to love about Girls Season 6 Episode 6, but I was particularly thrilled with the long overdue confrontations between Hannah and (separately) Jessa and Adam.

In other good news, Elijah may have finally found an actual storyline!

"Full Disclosure" was a fitting title on two levels. On a surface level, it's the title of Adam's movie about his relationship with Hannah, a movie which is increasingly becoming important in the lives and character arcs of Adam, Jessa, and now Hannah.

But beyond that, "Full Disclosure" was relevant because it's literally what Hannah did – she fully disclosed the status of her pregnancy (and the fact that she's keeping the baby) to nearly all of the most important characters on the show, including her dad (and his partner Keith), Marnie, Adam, and Jessa.

At this point, the only two main characters who probably don't know are Ray and Shoshanna »

Malia Obama Attends 'Girls' Final Season Premiere Party, Cast Reminiscences Over Last Day on Set

3 February 2017 10:25 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Former first daughter Malia Obama made a surprise appearance at the final season premiere party of Girls on Thursday night in New York.

Obama, who was an intern on the HBO series’ sixth season, bumped shoulders with the likes of Rita Wilson, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard, Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann, as well as Lena Dunham and the entire cast of the hit series, at the star-studded event.

Obama did not walk the red carpet at New York’s iconic Lincoln Center, but made her debut at the after-party hosted by HBO at Cipriani 42nd Street. Attendees jumped at the chance to meet the 18-year-old, who is currently taking a gap year before attending Harvard University in the fall of this year.

Dunham’s buzzy comedy about four young women in their early 20s (Dunham, Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet) navigating post-grad life in the Big Apple has clearly opened more doors for Obama »

‘Girls’ Cast Celebrates Final Season and Legacy of Empowering Women

3 February 2017 8:18 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The cast and producers of “Girls” celebrated the legacy of the HBO series Thursday night at the New York premiere of the sixth and final season.

Not surprisingly, the party at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall also turned into a conversation of the impact “Girls” has had on women.

“I think this show introduced the television audience to a new kind of heroine who doesn’t look like the way that people aspired to look,” said Allison Williams, who stars as Marnie Michaels. “It’s been such a privilege to be a part of something that people had opinions about. Even if they were bad, they were from people consuming media that was made by women. This is such a girl party tonight.”

Girls” garnered attention from the start thanks to auteur Lena Dunham’s feminist, outspoken and unapologetic approach to showing the good, the bad and the ugly of being a modern twenty-something woman. It »
