VICE On HBO: Boko Haram & Unnatural Selection (Season 4, Episode 1) [Video]

The National Resource Center For Mutant Mice?? WTF?? Oh, wait, VICE is back for Season 4. Ohhhhh! Now, that does not explain it. But be damned sure that VICE will explain everything. We have the first episode of this season from the HBO investigative docu-series embedded above. Read the episode summary below.

The terrorist group Boko Haram is responsible for thousands of deaths in Nigeria. Now, the government is determined to drive these militants from the country. But is the hunt for insurgents causing as much harm as it’s preventing? Former Navy SEAL and new VICE correspondent Kaj Larsen travels to Nigeria to see what this cat-and-mouse game means for the people caught in the middle of the fight.

For centuries, scientists have been working to change the genetic traits of plants and animals. Now, the new gene-editing method CRISPR has made that process astonishingly simple – so simple it could easily be used on humans.

Star Wars: Exile (Episode 1) [Fan Film]

HOOOOOOLY SHEEEEIT! This is a FAN film? Damn. Almost makes us feel bad for just buying tickets and renting these jawns and letting the movie producers & directors do what they do.

Almost… See, you have to have a George Lucas type to inspire a Pokey Spears & Noel Braham work of art like this. Enjoy!

Jedi around the galaxy are being viciously hunted and killed by the evil Galactic Empire. Aware of the imminent danger, Jedi Master Boemana Tora and her Padawan Makal Lori, flee to the outer rim systems close to the planet of Lothal.

(And that gorgeous Georginna Savoye… Mercy! May The Force Be Us. The is definitely be with her.)

Insecure As F**k: Season 1, Episode 1 (HBO) [Video]

Good to see. DEFINITELY! New perspectives on comedy, no filter as far as we can see. We saw it from Donald Glover (“Atlanta” on FX is really good). Now, we see Issa doing her thing…on HBO! Watch the full ep. Not a trailer. No bootleg. Straight from Issa herself.

In the wake of her 29th birthday, Issa Dee and her best friend Molly reconsider their life choices.

Watch the half-hour comedy series Insecure, starring Issa Rae, Yvonne Orji, Jay Ellis and Lisa Joyce. Created and executive produced by Issa Rae, this eight-episode series is also executive produced by Prentice Penny, Melina Matsoukas, Michael Rotenberg, Dave Beck, Jonathan Berry, and Larry Wilmore as a consultant.

Insecure airs Sundays at 10:30PM on HBO.

Larry Wilmore attached. POWER move (do your research… the man behind “The Bernie Mac Show” to “Blackish”… too real for Comedy Central, but good while it lasted)!

She’s Got Game: Meeting The Game (Episode 1) [Video]

Don’t think of She’s Got Game as ‘reality television’ (well, you can if you want). Think of it as The Game sharing his Eye Candy with you. For while he looks for love, we get to look over his foine azz choices. And remember, so do his friends…

…and this is a competition… meaning these ladies are all but guaranteed to hate on each other at some point. So, now you have VH1 trademark drama on deck. Use that as ‘cover’ for your ogling. Got the show’s premiere episode cued above for you to practice that.

(You can say something like, “Baby, why are they acting all wild and crazy and embarrassing themselves like that? Breastses and azz just wiggling and jiggling all over the place. And do you see what they are wearing? Wow. Let’s remember to watch for that when we rewind when we watch this again On Demand. Mm mm mm. Just trifling. Right, Honey? Honey… awww why you mad? What did I do now??! Just trying to spend quality time watching TV with you, and now you get salty.”)

Whew! Check for some snapshots after the jump. And altogether say, “Thank you, Game” (who is still rocking shows AND exec producing the show… meaning the player is still about business)!
