Has enough time passed that we can laugh at the final seasons of ‘Game of Thrones’ instead of just being SO FURIOUS?

The Honest Trailers guys tackle the final seasons of Game of Thrones and, yeah, they’ve got some strong points in here:

I’m guessing you’ll be able to rewatch Game of Thrones (which I am considering doing if only to recap those first few seasons I didn’t get around to) on HBO Max, the upcoming streaming service from WarnerMedia. It’s also where you will watch Friends beginning in 2020, as well as all these other upcoming series.

Speaking of, here’s a long-form piece about the new era of television we are entering with the launch of all these new streaming services, and shorter form material.

The third Democratic presidential debate is going to be hosted here in Houston on September 12 and 13, and it will broadcast on ABC and Univision.

“As the nation’s most diverse city, Houston is the perfect place for the Democratic Party’s third debate. Leaders like Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee and Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner have been key to making Houston the world-class city it is today,” DNC chairman Tom Perez said in a statement. “Like the people of Texas, our candidates come from all kinds of backgrounds, and are all united by their deeply held values. We’ve seen firsthand in Texas that organizing everywhere through the Texas Democratic Party has led to victories all across the state, including flipping a dozen state House seats and making the state more competitive than it has been in decades. Houston is the perfect place to showcase our candidates so that they can share their vision for a better future for the American people.”


STRANGER THINGS SPOILER ALERT. Do not click until you’ve finished watching season three. Personally, I don’t think the American in the cell is the American you think, but I don’t want to say any more than that until everyone is on the same page. (Dr. Brenner. It will be Dr. Brenner.)

So those cryptic teases that Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul were putting out? Yeah, it was an ad for their mezcal label. Cool, guys. Real cool.

Chrissy Teigen accidentally shared an entire episode of Bring the Funny ahead of its premiere yesterday. WHOOPS.

Hey, you’ll never guess who was behind the Seth Rich controversy that Sean Hannity slavishly promoted on his show time and time and time again. Oh, wait, you thought it was the Russians? Then you were right.


Aziz Ansari addresses his own sexual harassment scandal in his Netflix special which debuted yesterday. He jokes about being mistaken for Hasan Minhaj, before becoming serious: “There’s times I felt scared,” he says in the special. “There’s times I felt humiliated. There’s times I felt embarrassed. And ultimately I just felt terrible that this person felt this way.” Then in almost a whisper, he recalls a friend who told him that this incident had made him re-evaluate his own dating life, which provided Ansari’s conclusion. “It’s made not just me but other people more thoughtful, and that’s a good thing.”

So, it sounds like Mark Zuckerberg’s head of security was a GOD DAMNED NIGHTMARE.

Oh no, Gina Gershon, what is you doin’, baby?

More on the whole Jeffrey Epstein mess: Bill Clinton, who flew on Epstein’s private plane a bunch of times, is being all “I don’t know her“; Trump and David Pecker of the National Enquirer had discussions about Epstein ahead of the election; in the wake of #MeToo, pressure is being put on prosecutors’ offices to charge monsters who systemically sexually abuse women with sex trafficking — as in with this recent Epstein case, and the R. Kelly case — because the charge is taken more seriously. GOOD.

Meanwhile, Trump’s Doral resort in Florida is hosting a golf tournament run by a Miami-based strip club which will auction off dancers to be used as “girl caddies.” Gross.

Oh hey, American Airlines forced this woman to wrap herself in a blanket to be able to fly on their plane because they found her outfit to be offensive. This in the year Two Thousand and Nineteen. Personally, I find people who fly while wearing pajamas FAR more offensive.

Rip Torn, Actor known for The Larry Sanders Show, Men in Black, and 30 Rock among many many others. He also kicked Norman Mailer’s ass in a movie, and this one time was so blackout drunk, he broke into a bank believing it was his home. He was a genuine Texas badass.
