See How Much Allison Williams’s Brother and Her Husband Look Alike

20 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Girls star Allison Williams stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to talk about her new movie Get Out. Speaking of getting out, this information may very well have you say, “get out.” Williams, who married Ricky Van Veen in September 2015, told Meyers that her brother, Douglas, often gets mistaken for her husband whenever they walk a red carpet together. She claimed that her brother would be the perfect stand in. But things got really weird because Seth shared a face-swap photo of Ricky and Douglas to prove how much they look alike. And before that he shared a

Girls' Final Bottle Episode: Matthew Rhys, a Penis and Lots of Debate

22 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

One of the traditions of Girls has been to take one of the girls, in this case Hannah Horvath, and transplant them into a situation, usually a single one, for an entire episode. In "American Bitch," Hannah (Lena Dunham) was summoned to the apartment of famous writer Chuck Palmer (Matthew Rhys) and the two spent the day together discussing sexual assault and fame after Hannah penned an essay about the writer based on another girl's Tumblr post about her time with him. The tension between Hannah and Chuck was palpable from the moment she stepped into his eye line. What followed was a sometimes thought-provoking, sometimes eye roll-inducing episode where it felt like anything could happen. And it did. As the two »

‘Adventure Time’ Is Slowly Going Off the Air, And Everyone’s Moving On

24 February 2017 12:16 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Adventure Time” has a long way to go, but in many ways, it already ended. In early February 2017, just a few months after Cartoon Network notified the team behind its most surprising breakout hit that the show was canceled, the cast finished their last round of voice work. The final episodes were written, and the saga of Finn and Jake in the magical, post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo came to a close as the cast and crew scattered to new projects. The fruits of their labor will gradually unfurl on Cartoon Network until 2018 — although the timing remains uncertain. Fans must wait for the slow march to the finale, but the creative team is moving on.

“It was bittersweet,” said head writer Kent Osborne, recalling the last day of recording. “A lot of shows don’t last this long, but this felt different because it was just so popular.”

'Girls' Team Discusses Sexual-Consent Episode, Downplays Bill Cosby Comparisons

24 February 2017 11:59 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: The following story contains spoilers from the third episode of Girls' sixth season, "American Bitch."]

Well, that was uncomfortable. Girls viewers likely felt uneasy after watching the third episode of the season, entitled "American Bitch."

In the stand-alone half-hour, which was posted on HBO Go and HBO Now on Friday ahead of its Sunday linear premiere, Lena Dunham's Hannah visits the apartment of famed novelist Chuck Palmer (Matthew Rhys) after writing an article about him in response to hearing that he'd used his power and influence to engage in multiple, possibly nonconsensual, sexual encounters with college students on his book »

‘Girls’ Review: Lena Dunham and Matthew Rhys Battle Over Consent in ‘American Bitch’

24 February 2017 11:43 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Last Week’S Review: ‘Hostage Situation’ Has A Horror Movie Premise

[Editor’s note: Major spoilers for “Girls” Season 6, Episode 3, “American Bitch” follow. The episode airs Sunday, February 26 on HBO, but is now available to stream via HBO Now and HBO Go.]

Love Her or Hate Her

Love her. If there were ever an episode of “Girls” that Lena Dunham was meant to write, this is it. At first glance the bottle episode seems to be a throwback to the second season’s “One Man’s Trash,” thanks to the set-up, but it quickly veers into much different territory. Hannah visits famed author Chuck Palmer (Matthew Rhys) in his fancy New York apartment to discuss an article she wrote about him and the four women who accused him of sexual abuse.

“American Bitch” then delves into a considerate and in-depth conversation about consent, what it means, “grey areas” and a slew of other insightful thoughts surrounding the subject matter. It’s a timely offering featuring a more adult version of Hannah than we’ve ever seen before from “Girls.” Sure, »

‘Girls’ Director Richard Shepard on What the Final Shot of ‘American Bitch’ Means and Getting Matthew Rhys to Do… That

24 February 2017 11:43 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s note: Major spoilers for “Girls” Season 6, Episode 3, “American Bitch” follow. The episode airs Sunday, February 26 on HBO, but is now available to stream via HBO Now and HBO Go.]

When you ask Richard Shepard how he feels about directing episodes of “Girls” — specifically episodes like “American Bitch” — the word he uses is “lucky.” (More than once.) The Emmy-winning director has been a regular in the rotation of “Girls” directors, most notably being the helmer of choice for the show’s “bottle episodes” — relatively self-contained installments focusing on just one of the titular girls for an entire half-hour.

“The bottle episodes are extremely challenging and also extremely fun because you get to spend all this direct time with the actors and the characters,” he told IndieWire via phone. “And you get to shift the cinematic style a little bit because of the nature of whatever it is. We do things that had not been done on the show before.”

‘Girls’ Director Richard Shepard on Sunday Night’s Searing Episode ‘American Bitch’

24 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched episode 3 of season 6 of “Girls,” titled “American Bitch.” The episode — along with new eps of “Big Little Lies” and “Crashing” — will be released earlier than usual on Friday on HBO Now, HBO Go, and On Demand.

Sunday night’s episode of “Girls” is one of the finest half-hours the show has produced — essentially a one-act short film in which Hannah (Lena Dunham) visits the apartment of Chuck Palmer (Matthew Rhys), an acclaimed author accused of sexual assault. The resulting encounter between the two of them is one of manipulation and shifting power dynamics, one that uses Dunham’s gift for reproducing awkwardness to sharpen the conclusion of the episode into a jagged, uncomfortable point. It seems almost reductive to observe that the episode addresses rape culture, consent, and the power dynamics between entitled creative men and vulnerable creative women — it is about all of this, but »

Review: "Get Out"

24 February 2017 9:01 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Chris Feil

From its long-take opening to its satisfying conclusion, comedian Jordan Peele’s directorial debut Get Out is one hell of a delight. Photographer Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) is heading to the country family home of his girlfriend Rose (GirlsAllison Williams), an extra uneasy experience given that he is her first black boyfriend. Her parents (Bradley Whitford and Catherine Keener) are woodsy liberals, quasi-intellectuals who love Obama and are just on the performative side of accommodating.

But it’s best to let the rest of Get Out reveal itself: you’ll want to know as little as possible before strapping into this ride »

‘Patriot’ Review: Amazon Unveils an Enticingly Strange Anti-Spy Story, Unique Save For One Other Show

24 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If you were a fan of “Quarry,” then you’ve got a new show to watch. It may sound a bit odd — unhelpful, even — to recommend a new, under-hyped TV show by comparing it to an old, under-hyped TV show, but the Cinemax series still hoping to achieve cult status (and/or a second season) has quite a bit in common with “Patriot,” Amazon’s latest original drama. And both series deserve the attention of anyone prone to mysterious tales of undercover agents.

To wit: Both series track the lives of men who want to quit their government jobs. Both men are white, quiet types with facial hair who struggle to convey their emotions to friends and family. Both men are suffering from various forms of Ptsd. Both men are forced to keep their jobs (for varying reasons). Both series are set in the past. Both series are told from a unique, »

Comedy Horror Movie Get Out Is Funny, Scary, Bloody — and Dead Serious About Racism

23 February 2017 6:17 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Chris Washington and Rose Armitage, his white girlfriend, arrive for a weekend visit with her family in a remote, leafy suburb, Dad tries hard (too hard) to allay any discomfort his guest may be experiencing.

Or to look at it from the other end, Dr. Armitage — he’s a neurosurgeon — is trying to disguise any hint that he and Rose’s mother might themselves be experiencing any discomfort: Chris is their daughter’s first African-American significant other, and Rose hasn’t told them in advance.

Dr. Armitage addresses Chris as “my man” and tells him how much he loved Barack Obama – wished, »

Get Into Get Out [Review]

23 February 2017 2:17 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Jordan Peele is best known as a comedian and one-half of the hilarious duo of Key & Peele but as it turns out, Peele is also a big horror buff and Get Out, a writing exercise he never figured would get made, is a perfect example of what can happen when an artist is given the opportunity to try something different.

Daniel Kaluuya ("The Fades," "Black Mirror," Sicario) stars as Chris, a talented photographer who is going away for the weekend with his girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams of "Girls" fame) to meet her parents for the first time. He's very black; she's very white and she hasn't told mom and dad. Rose argues race is a non-issue and though at first reluctant, Chris goes along with the weekend plans but rather quickly, even before the pair arrives at the posh family [Continued ...] »

Review: "Get Out" (2017) Starring Daniel Kaluuya

23 February 2017 10:28 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Mark Cerulli 

This so could have been a by-the-numbers genre movie: “Sensitive boyfriend goes to meet hot girlfriend’s parents in secluded country home and mayhem ensues…” and that’s exactly what happens in Get Out, the new thriller from writer/director Jordan Peele, but in a totally unexpected way.

The film turns every horror trope on its head while tackling racist stereotypes along the way. Daniel Kaluuya is excellent as Chris, an aspiring young photographer who happens to be black. His beautiful, Ivy League-ish girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams from HBO’s Girls) is bringing him home to meet her parents for the first time – a momentous occasion in any new relationship but even more so when it’s interracial, a fact the movie meets head on. Once at the family estate, Chris feels that something is truly off – from the mind-gaming father (Bradley Whitford) and his spooky psychiatrist »
