Can one woman challenge the patriarchy through porn in the 1970s? The newest HBO Max comedy series Minx seeks to answer that question through the lens of Joyce (Ophelia Lovibond), a proud feminist determined to make a difference with a revolutionary idea.
An erotic magazine ... for women.
Joyce is dubbed the "Porn Queen of Pasadena" for her valiant effort to shatter the glass ceiling in the patriarchal porn industry. Does Joyce succeed? How many episodes do Minx fans get to find out the answer? Here's what we know.
How many episodes is 'Minx'? What's the release schedule?
The first two episodes, titled, "Not Like a Shvantz Right in the Face" and "Au Revoir, Double Dong," are currently available to stream on HBO Max.
Two new episodes will drop on HBO Max every Thursday. If you like to wait until all the episodes are available to watch a show, then you'll have to wait until Thursday, April 14 so you can binge-watch the whole season.
Who's in the cast of 'Minx'?
Ophelia Lovibond plays Joyce, the main character of Minx, a dedicated feminist who genuinely wants her magazine to center around issues affecting women.
New Girl star Jake Johnson co-stars as Doug, a magazine publisher who sees a prime opportunity in Joyce's feminist magazine idea.
Idara Victor (of Rizzoli and Isles fame, among other roles) is Doug's secretary Tina. She has a hilarious moment in Episode 1 where she and Joyce meet for the first time. Joyce asks Tina for something to drink, so Tina calls her out for assuming she is the secretary because she is Black. Of course, it turns out Tina is Doug's secretary.
Jessica Lowe is another notable Minx cast member, portraying Bambi, a model who Doug hired to be Joyce's centerfold coordinator. Bambi's a bit ditzy but she means well and she's eager to work hard to bring Joyce's magazine, Minx, to life.
You can stream the first two episodes of Minx now on HBO Max. Two new episodes drop every Thursday.
