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. Isobel Yeung reports from Brazil, Scotland, China and the U.S. on the technological advances that could reshape evolution as we know it.

Eminem Speaks On Dr. Dre x Jimmy Iovine As ‘The Defiant Ones’ (Trailer)

Getting closer to the July 9th release of this one on HBO. You saw Em on “The Defiant Ones” trailer, so you’d expect him to figure prominently in the film; but what he has to say (here) might surprise you (dope line about the ‘levitator’ and the ‘innovator’). Watch him and others weigh in in poignant, as well as playful snips in the above teaser trailer.

And hey look… some cool content on the project’s Instagram (here).

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (HBO Trailer)

I’m from Tuskegee y’all. I swear to you this trailer give me the feels like this movie will have elements of the infamous Syphilis Study that took place there. Injustice, incredulity, and infighting (though apparently not enough) left those Black men with no care and no hope; even when they had no real knowledge of their plight… until it was too late. I am really hoping for a happier ending here.

Science took her cells. Her family reclaimed her story.

Oprah Winfrey and Rose Byrne star in this adaptation of the critically-acclaimed book. HBO Films presents The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks Saturday, April 22 at 8pm on HBO.

Either way, it looks incredibly compelling. I will be watching. Join me #HeLaCells

Yvonne Orji (Molly On HBO’s “Insecure”) Is Keeping It Locked Until She Gets That Rock! [Video]

That Issa Rae “Insecure” show on HBO is a hit. Hahaha! How many times did they play with that ‘orgy’ vs. ‘Orji‘ pronunciation at the beginning? And WOW do they go right at ‘Molly’ right from the start on the Breakfast Club!

Yvonne Orji, the breakout star of HBO’s new show Insecure, stopped by the studio on Friday to talk with The Breakfast Club. Yvonne talked about playing a sexually free character named Molly on the show while being a 32-year-old virgin in real life. Yvonne also talked about her Nigerian roots, strong faith, and her first big break.

Great interview. Yvonne is hilarious and cool. So much so, this interview made me binge and catch up On Demand this past weekend. Yeah. That good. Watch and enjoy.

(Yvonne, fine guyull, I will stab you… BWAAAHAHAAAA!!)

President Obama: The Full Interview on ‘Real Time’ With Bill Maher (Video)

Well, here it is… After about 8 years of cosigning, campaigning, contributing and cajoling… Bill Maher gets a sit-down with the President Of The United States aka POTUS aka President Barack Hussein Obama!

President Barack Obama sits down with Bill Maher on the eve of the election to discuss the issues Real Time viewers care about. Original air date: November 4, 2016.

Great conversation! Cannot say it was worth the wait because a lot of this talk has been said by the President and his administration all along. After watching, you’ll probably agree that (while a studio appearance would have been awesome & appreciated) this choice of format and venue (directed Q&A at the White House with plenty of time to talk) was the best way to go. We get to hear all of what the President had to say in response to all of what Maher wanted to ask on his viewers’ behalf.

You REALLY want to watch the ENTIRE interview, especially if you are an American (regardless of party, belief, etc.).

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)!

And you know guest Nas can weigh in on much of that.

And both guests agree… Every basketball player wants to be a rapper. And every rapper wants to be a basketball player. Bill’s got both on here. Great show! Start with the clip above and continue after the jump below.

Edward Snowden On How To Make Your Phone ‘Go Black’ (Video)

If the NSA wants to pop my box, they’re totally gonna do it.
Edward Snowden

Now THAT… if anything sounds like an occasion to immediately say, “PAUSE!” But for real, pause, for just a bit over a minute, and watch this clip. Have you seen the whole Edward Snowden piece by VICE on HBO? You should. It’s on here. But this clip though – advice from a guy that used to work for a super-spy agency, now trying to stay beyond the reach of that Agency… Maaaan, dig in!

State of Surveillance (Documentary)

Damn. Privacy is an illusion. That’s not the future; that’s NOW. If anyone would know, it’s former NSA’er, current whistleblower in exile, Edward Snowden. And if anyone can get at the core of the story, it’s VICE.

When NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden leaked details of massive government surveillance programs in 2013, he ignited a raging debate over digital privacy and security. That debate came to a head this year, when Apple refused an FBI court order to access the iPhone of alleged San Bernardino Terrorist Syed Farook. Meanwhile, journalists and activists are under increasing attack from foreign agents. To find out the government’s real capabilities, and whether any of us can truly protect our sensitive information, VICE founder Shane Smith heads to Moscow to meet the man who started the conversation, Edward Snowden.

The Segment Lampooning Hollywood’s ‘Whitewashing’ On Last Week Tonight With John Oliver Was Epic! (Video)

Last Week Tonight dropped this satirical gem (okay, megaton satire bomb) on Hollywood whitewashing on its ‘How Is This Still A Thing?’ segment just before the Academy Awards. Not enough roles for non-White actors, eh Hollywood? Bullsh!t much? Hope John Oliver did not p!ss off any future guests with this one. Then again, so what if he did? This is too spot on …and hilarious …and true!

Ballers (Season 2 Teaser Trailer)

Are you Vin Diesel?
Nooo… I’m bigger and better looking.

Another reason it’s not just TV. HBO original series “Ballers” (starring Dewayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson) is coming back like it left the heist money! More highly-paid, frequently laid, off-field antics ahead this Summer to be certain. Looks like the fellas are still not going to act right. More money, more problems. And why not throw Andy Garcia into the mix for added Maybach-level mayhem? Check out the Season 2 teaser above.

Real Time With Bill Maher: New Rule – Crass Warfare (Video)

Okaaaay, apparently Donald Trump has already engaged discourse with leaders beyond the U.S. border. Judging by Mexican President Vicente Fox’s reaction (a.k.a. the F-bomb heard around the world), Trump’s big ideas may not be ‘well-received.’ Truth is, The Donald has pushed political discourse stateside and worldwide too far. And as ‘President Maher‘ might proclaim, that sh!t needs to stop! But there’s no ‘New Rule’ against laughing at a little satire before it does.

In his editorial New Rule, Bill Maher takes viewers to a not-too-distant future where the crass language of the campaign trail makes its way into the Oval Office.

Think about it though. Those included clips are of candidate Trump speaking in public; cussing out loud at crowds. Just saying, maybe think about that on the way to the ballot box.
