A glob of stray semen is slathered on as impromptu hair gel. A high school flutist describes all the graphic details of her "one time at band camp." A slobbering frat boy climbs a ladder for a close look at disrobing co-eds — a glimpse so revelatory that he plummets backward without batting an eye. Raunch-comedy history is littered with off-color climaxes, and the genre hasn't blown its load quite yet.

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino may be back in another reality show, but he's come a long way from his "Jersey Shore" days. Long gone is the grenade smushing, alcohol-addled star MTV fans came to know and sometimes love on the extremely popular series ... and he's definitely changed for the better. The ab-tastic wonder stopped by toofab's studio to promote his new show, "The Sorrentinos," where he got incredibly candid about his sobriety, revealed how much he keeps in contact with the "Jersey" gang and gushed over his new girlfriend -- who he calls "the only girl I couldn't do without."Sorrentino's TV Guide Network series gives fans a better look at his entire family, who played a big role on getting him cleaned up."The only thing that I didn't understand was how my sobriety affected my loved ones," Mike tells toofab.

It's getting to the point where maternity clothes might be cuter than actual clothes! Mila Kunis' latest baby-on-board look is the most adorable brunch time ensemble we've seen on a celebrity in months, pregnant or not! Long gone are the days of pea-in-the-pod attire being limited to giant tent dresses or skin-tight shirts, thank god. It's the combo of skinny jeans and a blousy top that work so well here from a shape perspective. Both highlight the best parts of the Oz the Great and Powerful actress's current shape—her fit legs and her growing middle! Of course the fact that it's brilliantly distressed denim and a totally adorable tie-dyed hippie top are helping, but our »
Television has undergone something of a revolution in recent years. Long gone are the days when people crowded around a miniscule set to watch scheduled programming on just a handful of channels, replaced by the ability to watch programmes about seemingly anything, at any time and on any device with a screen, from mobile phones that fit into a pocket to gargantuan monstrosities that take up an entire wall.
Once viewed as inferior to film, the medium has evolved to the point where elements of its output are now considered superior to big-screen offerings. The film industry is hardly struggling as a result, however, and the fact that both mediums (alongside others such as video games) are continuing to grow and thrive makes it an exciting time to be a fan of screen-based entertainment.
The focus of this piece is specifically television, however, over the next few pages we »

So, you were lied to. Someone, somewhere along the line, told you a big fat lie about youth. And you, in all your naive innocence, you just lapped it up, didn’t you? They told you that your twenties would be the best time of your life. That you’d have it all figured out by now and that you’d finally feel complete. They told you that your twenties would be a whirlwind ride of nights out, parties, coffee and friends. They told you that the best was yet to come. That your teenage years were just the starter, but your twenties are the main course.
Believing all this you rushed through childhood and teenage-hood, straight on to what you thought would be the main event. You anticipated the sophisticated parties, dinner at friends’ houses and art gallery visits. You knew that you’d be thinner, prettier and »

Long gone are the days of rabbit ears antennas and three channels. TV is packed with quality dramas, and Emmy voters, like fans, tend to have their favorites (Mad Men). There's little doubt that with this being two series final seasons, many great shows are going to go unrecognized, and many casts won't be walking the red carpet. Here are some drama dark horses, and why they deserve their moment in the spotlight.
The 2014 Emmy nominations will be announced Friday July 10. Here are my picks for the Emmy underdogs of drama. Fingers crossed each one snags a nomination.
Rik Mayall, who has died suddenly aged 56, was a phenomenal and outrageous performer, a leading light of the "alternative" comedy circuit that emerged from the Comedy Store in the 1980s, and a not inconsiderable comic actor, playing in Beckett and Simon Gray on the West End stage and in Gogol at the National Theatre. Part of his success lay in the timing. His crude persona Rick in the breakthrough television series The Young Ones (1982-84), written with Ben Elton and Lise Mayer, was a gimlet-eyed, nose-picking lunatic who nonetheless carried a terrible plausibility as a prissy radical student of the day.
Long gone were the serious political protests and scabrous, intelligent revues of the 60s student generation; here, student life was parodied as grotty and anarchic, with Mayall surrounded by Ade Edmondson as Vyvyan, a crypto-Nazi, »

WWE is going through a tough time right now. Despite the success of WrestleMania 30; the WWE Network isn’t gaining as many subscribers as they hoped, their new television deal has disappointed investors and Monday Night Raw recently received its lowest rating of 2014. This time of the year is always tough on WWE, as it’s usually when their on air product is at its weakest but now all the business outside the ring is following the trend.
On top of the stock plummeting, Vince McMahon has reportedly lost nearly $850 million of his on paper worth in just two months. Despite all this chaos behind the scenes, WWE’s show hasn’t been too bad as of late with The Shield against Evolution proving to be a real winner and Daniel Bryan is finally WWE World Heavyweight Champion to the absolute joy of fans (even if neck surgery »

Long gone is the ‘70s golden age of midnight movies, psychedelic surrealism, and film industries’ deistic attitudes towards auteurs. Perhaps no filmmaker’s career has suffered more from this change in commercial and cultural sensibilities than Alejandro Jodorowsky, who birthed the successive cult staples El Topo and The Holy Mountain in the 1970s but has only seen the realization of sporadic (if no less brilliant) productions since. All of which makes it all the more amazing that Jodorowsky has experienced something of a quiet career renaissance in 2014 as the subject of Frank Pavich’s documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune and as the director of The Dance of Reality, the filmmaker’s first completed feature in nearly a quarter century. Yet for the never-not-great-news of new Jodorowsky, these two films hardly feel like a collective appreciation for an underappreciated artist in the twilight of his career, despite the direct relationship they share (Jodorowsky’s Dune reunited the filmmaker with »

Nowadays, reality television has become mostly about women fighting each other. Long gone are the days when reality shows were fun experiments that sometimes had a darker underlying critique of society as a whole. Or are they? Fox seems to have gotten a lock on the weird societal experiment-types of reality shows; first with “Joe Millionaire” and now with the upcoming “I Wanna Marry ‘Harry.’” I think you can guess the premise just from the title alone. A large amount of women are vying for the chance to marry someone they think is Prince Harry. The “prince” is a Prince Harry lookalike, but one has to wonder if the women [ Read More ]

'White Dog is an angry, didactic take on a subject more commonly handled at arm's length'
Long gone are the days when budding cinephiles would seek out new discoveries by gazing up at the marquee of their local nickelodeon and hoping against hope for a Capra retrospective or anything else that might offer a counterpoint to the paltry stream of new releases otherwise on offer.
Ever since the 1970s rolled up in a clapped-out three-wheeler filled with overpriced VHS tapes, our ability to consume film culture has been limited only by the scope of our imaginations, as millions of movies have poured into our living rooms on three decades' worth of home entertainment formats.

Pick a color, any color! Long gone are the days of only red and nude pouts showing up on the red carpet. Now stars sport a rainbow of lipstick hues—from lilac to black. And this season's must-have shade? Orange. Shay Mitchell, Nicole Richie and Miranda Kerr have all rocked the zesty tint. That's not to say that it's more famous cousin color, red, has gone out of style. That's never going to happen, thanks to cherry-loving stars like Taylor Swift and Jennifer Hudson. But as of now, stars like Emma Watson Beyonce, Lily Collins and Jessica Alba seem to be going beyond the traditional tint by testing out other berry shades. So which lip color is really these stars' best look? »
Patti Stanger has love in her blood.
The star of Bravo’s The Millionaire Matchmaker, currently in its seventh season, believes matchmaking is in her DNA. Makes sense, since both her mother and grandmother were matchmakers before her. But Patti has made the art of finding the perfect match her own. Her blunt words and actions (she’s not afraid to slap a guy on TV) have made Stanger the go-to girl for advice on love. Stanger shared some of her relationship tips with EW, setting up the Real Housewives and their friends in the future, and why now is »

Pain and Gain aside, Michael Bay has been in the world of Transformers for eight years now. Eight years. That’s almost a decade removed from the Michael Bay of old.
