I don't really have anything bad to say about "It's Back," or much of Season 2 of Girls for that matter (beyond what I said last week, that is), most likely because the majority of criticism I've heard and read of the series is based in sexism or subjective visceral reactions to Lena Dunham as an individual. I get so sick of reading the same negative commentary over and over again that it only feeds what I love about this show that much more, and so trying to find a Bad aspect of this episode would leave me empty, and pathetically snarkless.
Given its blatant catering to the youth of America, I was always stunned by the WB's use of Michigan J. Frog as their mascot. The (then) 40-year-old cartoon character was most famous for belting out old-timey music like "Hello My Baby" and "The Michigan Rag," and was not at all as well-known as the rest of the Looney Tunes stable... and probably the only one not already licensed out to a T-shirt company, which is likely why Warner Bros. chose him. Of course, since the network's demise in 2005, no one has seen hide nor hair of him, so I'm curious if he'll make a comeback now that The WB has resurfaced as a website, The WB.com, where you can watch all of your favorite WB (and Warner-produced) shows. Somehow I doubt it.
