    Default GIRLS ON HBO appreciation/ discussion thread

    A thread in which we discuss the TV show GIRLS on HBO. Dish on characters, episodes, the acting, the writing, the odd attractiveness of Adam. General Lena Dunham worship. There may be spoilers in this thread!!

    I watch GIRLS the way I watched Jersey Shore.. with horrified morbid curiosity. It's one of my guilty pleasures.

    It's probably my favorite show right now. I can't believe what assholes almost all the main characters are, and so fun to watch at the same time.

    I hope we see Adam in the new episode tonight. And Booth, even though I think his days are numbered.

    S01 E07 = Crack

    The Icona Pop song used during the tripping at the club scene had increased sales of over 1000% on itunes after that ep aired.

    I didn't quote the article because it contains spoilers, but it points out interesting little inconsistencies in the show.

    the rent thing baffles me as well, but friends having keys to apartments is not strange. my close friends do. but what is weird is that there's no secondary inside-only lock like a deadbolt or one or those chain things.

    Hannah doesn't strike me as the type of character that is manic about home security. Her irresponsible approach to most things would lead me to believe she'd forget to lock her door after coming home. The rent thing is weird though. Same as on Friends. They had a gorgeous apartment with top of the line appliances right in central Manhattan and half of them were barely employed. Hey, it's television.

    Re tonight's episode - she never should have gone there. She invited that whole scenario. The episode just demonstrated how flawed Hanna is in her judgment. And how manipulative she is. She can seduce someone in a vulnerable spot, and then she bails. Um has anyone noticed that she also hooked up with the crackhead on the main floor two episodes back and it's never been addressed? How is it that these girls and their affairs ever have any fallout??

    It's a reference to the writing - as if you even watched the episode.

    That was probably the best episode of the series so far.

    I hated this episode. It seemed out of sync with the existing storylines and seemed more a fantasy than something that would actually take place with Hanna's character.

    Isn't one of the points of the series is that a lot of people in their 20's are flawed in judgements in general, and still are into their 40's and beyond. For example, the older male character asking a total stranger into your house, and then agreeing to beg her to stay for a few days in your house. Then as a doctor calling in sick for someone you just met. As far seducing him, he agreed with everything, and was seeking comfort just as she was.

    And, why does it need to seem in sync with the rest of the storylines? I'd rather it take occasional turns then follow a formalistic series format, where you know exactly where it's going to go. And, Hannah's character is to be spontaneous and erractic, hence the episode. Like agreeing to take coke just to write a story online.

    I didn't find the plot line believable and the progression of their intimacy seemed forced. I may have found it better if it had been played out over a few episodes, instead of all crammed into 1/2 hour. I'm also frustrated that there are so many loose ends that aren't being addressed a natural way, and several seemingly key storylines revolving around other characters ( major and minor ) that are being neglected, and I'm hoping they won't get brushed under the rug.

    Also, two people that were obviously both desperately lonely found comfort in each other. They had a really great time together. What is wrong with that? I don't think it seemed forced. Maybe a little fast, but given certain circumstances I think many people could find themselves in a similar situation.

    Again, the quickness of the intimacy is not suprising to me of a 24 year old, and the half hour format plays well to that. I really think it's one of the most beautiful scenes of the series when she's lying down on his leg and realizes that she could actually have intimacy like that, on a real level, rather than a relationship that is without that. And, in the end when she does those adult things like bring in the newspaper, and take out the trash, but then walks away because maybe she's not quite ready for that.

    Of course I watched the episode. That was by far the sweetest thing she's ever written. She did a remarkably good job of conveying to me what it must feel like to be a 24 year old girl dying to fuck an older guy, which is a storyline that I normally wouldn't give a fuck about, but she did it beautifully.

    You're a dumb, dumb fuck.

    You really think the episode was about her dying to fuck an older guy? What it was trying to convey was that Hanna is going though a reckless process of self discovery and in doing so, she is starting to believe she is deserving of love. The random plot line and the scenario that got her there is my issue.
