Show Disliked

"Brian Williams' daughter throws a dinner party, like a grown-up. Someone brings opium tea. The guy who brought the opium tea listens to Laurie Simmons' daughter complaining about not having a job and says, 'I'm sorry but watching this is like watching Clueless,' which is a thing someone must have actually said to Judd Apatow at some point."
—If you can handle reading one more thing about 'Girls,' make it this recap. Oh, right, also this, but I assume you've read it already.

Can we get a kickstarter together to fund Danny McBride recording a DVD commentary track type narration for every episode of Girls?

Since I got rid of cable, I was unaware of Girls until today. And yet, from all the hubub, hullaballoo and hurly-burly on the interwebs, I can't tell if I should care about missing it.

@BadUncle Wait til you read the to-do and the scuttlebutt!

@Danzig! Are you giving me the high hat?

@BadUncle If it were up to me, trust, I'd give you the skinny

Girls, proving I've been right to ignore SXSW all these years.

No New York. Then no it again.

It would be great if a young woman wrote a recap or review like that. When old guys or old guys in women's bodies (Roiphe) write reviews or recaps like that, it just means that watching the show makes old guys wish they were young again.

This show made me feel bad to live in Brooklyn.

Have you guys ever tried opium tea? It is so raunchy, like drinking stewed lawn clippings.
Wicked body buzz though.

Ai yi yi, misogynist much? The whole talking about women like they're girls ("daughters") thing to discredit them is stale and Republican and it's the same reason all this vaginal probe legislation is getting passed and teenagers can't get Plan B. (Obama: "As the father of two daughters, I think it is important for us to make sure that we apply some common sense to various rules when it comes to over-the-counter medicine.")

Oh noes, someone got a job in Hollywood partly thanks to connections. Well guess what, a lot of cis dudes got a job in Hollywood partly thanks to them not being women or shaped like women.
