  5. HBO Shows Will Finally Be Available Online to Non-HBO Subscribers, But There’s a Catch

    the internet is serious business

    Or, I should say, HBO shows will finally be available online legally to non-HBO subscribers. Because, while it's technically illegal for someone who doesn't get HBO to log into someone else's HBO GO account, it's not like that ever stopped anyone. But HBO GO isn't the subject of this news. Nope. HBO's getting in bed with the Overlord of the Internet: Amazon. Edit: This just in: According to Variety HBO's Amazon deal does not include Game of Thrones. Ditto Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Sex and the City, which have other U.S. syndication deals. And "new and future shows," including True Detective and Silicon Valley, are excluded under the current deal as well. Thanks, HBO.

  10. Things We Saw Today: Wow, I Didn’t Know There Are No Female Characters In Adventure Time!

    Things We Saw Today

    ...at least that's what you'd think if you looked at McDonalds' line of Adventure Time Happy Meal toys, which has only male characters and is marketed "for boys," while the Paul Frank monkeys are "for girls." Princess Bubblegum, Marceline, Lumpy Space Princess, etc. must have been figments of my imagination this whole time. (Serious Eats)
