Game of Thrones season 7 beset by another episode leak, this time by HBO
By Eliana Dockterman July 10, We live in a culture consumed by sex, and yet it is still rare to see realistic portrayals of female sexuality. Based on the real sex research of Virginia Johnson and William Masters, the show extensively explores the science of sexuality—and female sexuality especially. In an early episode, Virginia explains to William why a woman might fake an orgasm. The researchers go on to study topics ranging from female masturbation to the merits of the clitoris versus the G-Spot.

With its superb voice cast Kristen Wiig as a talking vagina! Maisel is a quick-witted delight. Between the period details, the breathtakingly artful camera work and just the overall scope, the Palladinos are taking full advantage of their presumably generous Amazon budget. It delivered a literal cliffhanger with a standout Season 2 finale, as Rebecca Bunch got ditched at the altar by her lifelong obsession Josh Chan.
As director on all 10 episodes, she crafted a raw, brutally honest and truly one-of-a-kind portrait of single-motherhood unlike anything else on television, which made us laugh nearly as often as it made us cry. Plus, bonus points for casting queen of the deadpan Betty Gilpin as soap-actress-turned-ass-kicker Debbie, aka Liberty Belle. When it toyed with our emotions, it pretty much wrecked us. And when it tackled crazy-complicated issues, it did so with uncommon candor and compassion.
How many series would be brave enough in the first place to allow their African-American heroine to even temporarily shrug off her discrimination against the Latino kids she was tasked with helping?
‘Room 104’, HBO: Meet the Cast
Reader Deborah I like The leftovers and feel like the story makes me feel what these characters are feeling. They are in a state of flux within themselves as well trying to make sense of what is going on around them. True Detective is a great show as well as Game of Thrones. S2 TD brought in more personal storyline of the characters which I really enjoyed seeing unfold, Paul, Frank and Ray going out so tragic sucked, but hey its tv.

New HBO drama The Night Of could be the best TV series of the year
At the semiannual television press tour in Beverly Hills, a reporter asked the tetchy, misanthropic comic what he thought of HBO’s upcoming series about the amorous travails of three middle-class couples, “Tell Me You Love Me,” which already has critics buzzing over its super-explicit sex scenes. David looked perplexed until Jeff Garlin, the beefy and unctuous Sancho Panza to David’s ectomorphic and prickly Quixote on “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” turned to his costar onstage and explained that “Tell Me” would be chockablock with “bosoms and things.
That’s not exactly a plot summary of “Tell Me,” but it’s not a bad place to start. Because that’s where many viewers will start. Whatever else it may or may not be, “Tell Me,” at least in its current form, will set a new precedent for prime-time TV when it has its premiere Sept. No previous series, on pay cable or anywhere else, has dared show anything even close to this much skin; the climax, if you will, of the first episode finds a woman Sonya Walger in her 30s masturbating her husband Adam Scott to orgasm, with the entire act and all relevant body parts plainly visible.

Nic Walker So why is she so little known here? Moriarty’s Australian obscurity has been very real: And though Paterson has since slightly revised this judgment, she still wonders why it’s been such a slow burn. The book-buying public, clearly, knows exactly who she is: But it’s also true to say that, despite her incredible success, Moriarty has been the subject of a number of systemic problems within the publishing industry.
And most of these problems are, depressingly, simply the result of being a woman. There are always the most incredible lives going on behind the scenes. Liane Moriarty Publishing, despite its reputation as a civilised meritocracy, is a hard industry for women.
`Love’ and sex on HBO
Hannah is maturing into a person better able to fit into polite society, which is good! The fact that the show is doing the same, though, gives us something to mourn. The season begins at the wedding of Marnie Allison Williams , a ceremony seemingly attended only by people with a close personal tie to—and strong feelings about—Hannah. This is an adherence to tropes that the Girls of past seasons would never have dared: Weddings are among the most stressful events in life precisely because of the way they bring unfamiliar elements into conflict.
When everyone around her is acting like a maniac in ways governed by overdetermined plot mechanics, we lose sight of her.

But part of crafting realistic and visceral TV is portraying intimate moments for the characters, including lots of sex. HBO shows have never been shy on producing love scenes; we’ve seen orgies in Westworld , Vampire sex in True Blood , and the short lived series Tell Me You Love Me was almost exclusively focused on the characters’ sex lives. So it seems like the network would allow just about anything to fly. Alas, there was one sex scene that even HBO had problems with.
The cast and creatives of HBO’s hit comedy Girls recently did an oral history and photoshoot with THR celebrating the series which will end this year. In the interview, producer Judd Apatow revealed the one love scene which HBO had major problems with.

HBO How did you come to work on Westworld? I was a fan of the old Yul Brynner [film] back in the day, and I trust the people I work with. I trust Jonah and Lisa [Joy] implicitly, in terms of their storytelling, the way they use effects, and the style they do. For me, it in some ways comes down to the people and their ideas, rather than the specifics.
