Girls' moment is almost up, but this lovely, gossamer line ["I want to write stories that make people feel less alone than I did, to laugh about the things that are painful in life.”] reminds us why that moment was so special.
Hannah and most of her friends share a quick-witted, sardonic millennial sense of humor, but their banter is at its funniest and most revealing when the characters are oblivious to the effect of their words.
Definitely gives me first season vibes and I'm totally okay wth that. The dialogue is still witty and the character development is so obvious amongst the characters/actors as a whole. It makes me happy to see that the show will go out with an excellent final season. Oh, and to all the people rating it negatively before even watching or solely basing their ratings off of their hatred towards Lena Dunham, learn to separate the art from the artist and show respect for the work. There is no denying her talent.
This was a really great, really poignant season, capturing all the best qualities of what has been an interesting but inconsistent series. These characters are so flawed, but so heartfelt, it's really been a ride I enjoyed. And the final episode is great. This final season is the best of this show.
The first three episodes of season six, all written by Dunham, suggest that Girls will go out as it came in: lancing its characters’ pretensions and delusions while demanding that we care about them as people, and working in a storytelling mode that’s lightly serialized with stand-alone plotlines and structural stunts mixed in.
Leah Dunham is full of it. Talent, that is. She can write her away around any illogical setup or self-absorbed unlikable characters who just have a way of looking at life that's a little different from us normal people. They're cooler than us and they're sexually liberated that's for sure and they'll even take it in the out door if you know what I am saying if they really like the guy or girl.
There's a lot of great material in here yearning to get out though it's not easy to see the first 6-7 times you watch. I haven't had the time to watch for an eighth time but it has to be in there with the way the media lauds this ground-breaking show that's really shedding new light on something.
There is a of eye-rolling and some raw talk about people's bodies and their bathing suit zones. And it does not hurt that Adam Diver is a gigantic hunk of ****
"Girls" is a big pile of malignant narcissism. Why all this self-loathing? And why is this a television show? It's in no way insightful. These people are vapid, duplicitous and petulant. Ugh. I prefer "New Girl" to "Girls." At least those writers appear to love their characters.
