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?
Looks like Walter White is doing some planning for his future.
Girls haters have another loss to groan about this week: Lena and the gang have been picked up for a third season. And if virgin viewers took that news to heart and decided to check out the show starting with this week's "Bad Friend," I'm pretty sure they will never ever be back.
Girls! Girls! Girls!
Congratulations to Golden Globe winner for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy TV Series Lena Dunham and to Girls for picking up Best TV Comedy. I for one was pleasantly surprised, but when you compare "I Get Ideas" to this week's episode of Modern Family, suddenly the win doesn't seem quite so crazy. I also loved that after the Globes, Robyn's "Dancing On My Own" got a sales bump, but I digress.
Next season: Who killed the people behind The Killing?
Isn't it nice to be able to just watch Girls, rather than read think piece after think piece about how various people disliked those ten episodes of Season 1 so much that they feel their thoughts on Lena Dunham must therefore be transcendent? Yeah, me too.
Live from New York... it's the dude from The Voice!
Watch Lena Dunham get her girl power on.
HBO's Luck wasn't so lucky.
