Another major character was raped on Game of Thrones. This time, it was dealt with appropriately.
Another season of Game of Thrones, another Internet rage-fest over having to witness another major female character suffer a rape. For many fans who were appalled at the horrible scene of Jaime Lannister raping his sister/lover Cersei last season, it felt like the showrunners had only doubled down, putting Sansa Stark...

And seriously, a South Park reference as an insult?

On Mad Men, has any character suffered more than Betty Francis? 
“It’s been a gift to me, to know when to move on”—so said a surprisingly self-possessed Betty to Sally, as she explained how she’d decided to handle her cancer diagnosis: Not by fighting a losing battle, but by living out her final days on her own terms. Sally presumed her...

The dad bod, explained.
The youth of America have been whispering about something they call the “dad bod” for years, trading definitions on Urban Dictionary and presenting photographic evidence on Total Frat Move. But it wasn’t until last month—when 19-year-old Clemson University sophomore Mackenzie Pearson published the explanatory essay “Why Girls Love The Dad...

+Amanda Hess​​ this sounds suspiciously like code for girls being attracted to older men, the thing that dare not speak its name in the modern political correctness regime.

I know your article talks about guys at college, but "dad bod" ?

I'm surprised you didn't address that.

Inside Amy Schumer: season three reviewed.
The third season of Inside Amy Schumer opens with a musical number. “Milk, Milk, Lemonade” is a spoof of booty anthems starring Amy Schumer herself, with an assist by the impressively proportioned model Amber Rose, and it serves as a reminder that butts don’t just serve as a focal point...

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has a new trailer. 
Almost six months after the first teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens gave us our first look at Episode VII, the new trailer is here, and it was worth the wait. “The force is strong in my family,” we hear Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker say, as we see a...

Mad Men season 7, part 2, episode 2, recapped by Slate's TV Club.
Dear John and Julia, The waitress is a keeper! Julia, you thought they had no real chemistry. I thought she was just a one-off socialist prop. It turns out they were destined for each other. Diana, the itinerant waitress from Racine, Wisconsin, is a female variation of Dick Whitman: on...

I think he is longing for something real, just not a roll in the haystack. It was pretty sad when he went over her apt probably looking for some nookie but it wasn't for the reason something shallow. I believe he is honestly trying to find something genuine and honest in his life. but instead, she admits to having abandoned her other child with her father. She was in a pathetic state of mind of course vodka helping out and really was not into Don as she admitted. She needed an escape from her pain and Don saw that.

Our recap of the Mad Men series finale. 
The Mad Men finale opens with Don gunning across the Bonneville salt flats, attempting a land-speed record for outracing the pain of his own life. By its close, though, our hero has achieved stillness. At a retreat full of hippies, he resists the suicidal lure of Big Sur’s big cliffs,...

Kim Kardashian’s book "Selfish" is borderline insane. I can’t recommend it enough. 
Kim Kardashian has been taking selfies since 1984. That was the year she first immortalized her own face in an admiring close-up—round cheeks filling the frame, flash shining in her toddler eyes like a premonition. Some other baby Kardashian wails beside her, unmoved by the photo op, but Kim confronts...

Last night's Mad Men was the best episode yet of the final half of the series.
Now that’s what I call an episode. For the past two weeks, I’ve been grumbling about Mad Men jogging in place when I wanted it to be sprinting to the finish line. To borrow a phrase, this episode was fired out of a cannon. I need a glass of Chateau...

The Boston Marathon finish was absolutely nuts.
Kenya’s Caroline Rotich outsprinted Mare Dibaba of Ethiopia to claim victory in a dramatic finish to the Boston Marathon on Monday. You can watch Rotich power ahead of Dibaba in the last 100 yards of the race, with the two runners having gone neck and neck down Boylston Street until...

Twitter's new home page: will it appeal to non-Tweeters?
Twitter.com is a barren wasteland. I should qualify that statement. For the roughly 20 percent of American adults who maintain active Twitter accounts, the site is an overflowing river of wry observations, edifying links, and up-to-the-second dispatches from around the world. But they’re the minority. For the vast bulk of...

Game of Thrones season 5 review: The show is at its best when it diverges from the books completely. 
This Sunday, Game of Thrones returns to HBO with masked assassins, warrior-eunuchs, caged dragons, and a very creepy witch in the woods. Conspiracies are explained, intrigues advanced, prophecies cast, alliances scrambled. Just 14 minutes pass before the first instance of gratuitous nudity, and then only one more before the season’s...

I kind of agree. I have read all the books and wonder why I should watch so many hours of he same story I already know.
