Click image to watch Boardwalk Empire season 4 teaser
One of our favorite television shows returns this Fall and we can’t wait! HBO has just released a teaser for season four of Boardwalk Empire and it looks like the battles are about to get fierce. We think the point of the teaser is to introduce a new character by the name of Dr. Narseas (sp?) and make us thirst for the rest of the Summer.
Word to the only quote in the teaser, “Only kings understand each other.”

If watching the sexy video or getting hypnotized by our GIFs wasn’t enough, this behind-the-scenes footage of Ciara on the set of her “Body Party” video might give you a few CiCi angles that weren’t captured on the final cut (if you know what we mean).
In the clip, Director X, Ciara and a few people helping out on the set, break down the vision and direction of the video, mentioning they wanted to give the visual that ATL house party vibe that they’re known for. Interestingly enough, Director X says it includes “a” story (possibly the real story?) of how Future and Ciara met.
The camera man dancing at the 3:00 mark was fucking classic too.

After arguably the best game of the entire playoffs in game 1 of the Heat vs Pacers series, the squads head back to the floor to do it all again. Game 1 was a fiercely contested battle that ended up going to overtime after Paul George hit an almost miracle 3 pt shot to tie the game. It looked as though the Pacers were about to steal the game after Paul George knocked down three free throws to put them up one with two seconds to go, but a defensive miscommunication allowed LeBron James to get a wide open layup for the game winner.
Check out the full preview and give us your thoughts on game 2 after the jump.
