The problems keep piling on for Pied Piper.

+Louie started an important conversation about gender roles on TV with an anal sex scene.

Read my recap of episode 4:
There's no elegant way to say it, but Pamela fingers Louie's butt in episode 4.

Like its arch-villain, 'The Strain' is back with a vengeance, going bigger, badder and bolder this season.

+Silicon Valley HBO shows progress in its portrayal of women, but minorities? Not so much.

Here's why:

This hilarious new +Silicon Valley HBO character is the ultimate tech douche. Read my recap: 
'Silicon Valley' has just introduced us to a character for the ages -- and he comes in an excessively tanned, supremely douchey package.
