Girls: The Good, the Bad and the Funny

<I>Girls</i>: The Good, the Bad and the Funny

With "It's a Shame about Ray," we've now seen the exposed sides of Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna's relationships, teaching us about our main characters' vulnerabilities and projections, and how they look when they're at their most raw. Hannah is sloppy, tortured and afraid; Marnie is lost without her labels; Jessa is full of pain; and Shoshanna is strange but quite innocent. I think this might be my favorite episode of Girls so far, in no small part thanks to the well-proportioned screen time each of our protagonists got and, like in "All Adventurous Women Do," there was this wonderful moment of female friendship at the end, framed by a completely on-the-nose song that was just too perfect to really sneer at... you know, unless you hate-watch this show. In that case, I'd imagine that Hannah and Jessa in the tub is one of those scenes that made you cringe harder than ever before and only furthered your antipathy for Lena Dunham. To which I'd ask: unless you're getting paid to do it, why are you still watching this show, really?
