We're hooked on Bravo's Gallery Girls, mostly because the ladies of the cast have been so consistently terrible since the pilot that, like a car crash or a Honey Boo Boo Child, we cannot look away. In this short first season, we've met so many awful people and seen so many crappy work environments that we're left with a long list of questions that we really hope are answered before the season finale in three weeks. If anyone has any explanations for us, we'd love to hear them, pronto.
Something I really liked about "Hard Being Easy" is that the writers made it clear in this episode that our Girls leads are supposed to be selfish and completely unaware of what other people actually think of them or how they present themselves to the world... who knew?! That said, it wasn't my favorite installment so far this season -- I'd chalk it to up to too little Shoshanna -- though it did finally get me to realize that Jeff (Jessa's babysitting boss who obviously wants to sleep with her) is a dead ringer for Sister Wives star Kody Brown. So there's that. Let's get down to business and look at what did and didn't work.
To be clear, Girls -- Lena Dunham's HBO sitcom about a group of women in their early 20s living in New York -- is extremely well written. The characters are complex, the dialogue is oftentimes hilarious and the plot is captivating. After watching the pilot (and the subsequent two episodes via advance screeners), I honestly felt that I'd never seen something quite like it before, and it wasn't solely on account of it being lady-centric... though that certainly helped.
