Girls Season 3, Episode 6: Free Snacks

Girls Season 3, Episode 6: Free Snacks

Another stagnant episode of Girls this week sees little development in any character other than Hannah, who now has an advertorial job at GQ magazine. On her first day she enviably becomes the star of a meeting with her superiors as she rattles ideas off them for an article while she feasts heavily on a plethora of free snacks and drinks. Hannah is a really intelligent girl and to see her use her skills in a professional environment is actually quite refreshing, rather than talking about herself, she is talking about work and it’s a side of her I can most definitely get on board with.However, she is faced with the horrifying truth that...

Girls Season 3, Episode 5: Only Child

In the wake of David’s death, Hannah and Adam are attending his funeral. While there, they meet David’s wife…you heard me, his wife. David was a married man and happily it would seem. Despite being at his funeral, Hannah talks about her e-book with the newly widowed Mrs David. She, alarmed and upset, mentions that she was also writing a book for David and that Mill Street Press were dropping all of David’s projects. Hannah, becoming more and more inappropriate asks for the names of other publishers she could contact regarding her book, at which point she is asked to leave. Fair enough. Hannah’s meeting with potential new...

Girls Season Three, Episode Four: Dead Inside

The aptly titled fourth episode of the already magnificient third season of GIRLS starts with Hannah finding out that her publisher, David (the crazy little guy who through Ray across a table last week) was found dead in the Hudson River without any explanation. Hannah being Hannah she ambles home and admits to Adam and Jessa that she doesn’t feel sad or numb, she is merely concerned about what is going to happen to her e-book. Classic Hannah. Thus starts a theme to the episode. Jessa tells Shosh about her friend, a girl called Season, (only Jessa would have a friend called Season, right?) who died by choking on her own vomit “or...

“Which item of clothing would you like me to remove?” Lena Dunham on Letterman

“Which item of clothing would you like me to remove?” Lena Dunham on Letterman

I could listen to Lena Dunham talk for hours, in this case her interview on Letterman was enough to satisfy until the premier of season three of GIRLS on Sunday night. A self proclaimed lover of celebrity culture and celebrity figures, she discusses awards ceremonies. A lot of people will be expecting her to say that she hates them, that they are a popularity contest full of politics and have become a sadistic way to make great actors feel terrible about themselves but in fact she loves them. Why wouldn’t you? The glitz, the glamour, being surrounded by the world greatest actors and being praised publicly for doing something good? I’m...
