I first talked about the new HBO series Girls in this post. So I watched the second episode of Girls and I really liked it. The writing is sharp, and Lena Dunham (the creator, writer, director and lead actress of the show) has great timing, fantastic wit, and a direct approach on sexuality. While some of it makes me cringe and want to reach for the remote out of sheer embarrassment, I'm definitely enjoying it. And truth be told, I want to enjoy it, I'm making the choice to enjoy it, because I'm so frustrated by how nasty and vicious and personal some of the attacks on her and the show have been. The ridiculous expectation that she's supposed to represent all "girls" on this show is crazy. It's ONE show about FOUR girls (so far). We can all decide which ones we relate to the most, or dislike least, but it's one story - just let her tell this one story well - which is what she's doing.
Thanks for stopping by.
