Girls- It's a shame about Ray (HBO GO early premiere)



Spoiler:
Hannah concentrates on preparing to host her first dinner party and Marnie confronts her ex-boss, Audrey. Meanwhile, Jessa meets her new in-laws and Shoshanna takes her relationship with Ray to the next phase.


So since this hasn't officially aired on HBO we should use Spoilers till the air date.

I liked this episode but most of it ended up being pretty sad by the end.

Spoiler:
at Jessa meeting Thomas's parents dinner scene.

Lena Dunham is EW's cover girl this week. Apparently she's "The Voice of A Generation."

Yeah, just noticed that too.

Watched it on HBOGo, but am a little bummed to not have a new episode now.

This is not airing tomorrow along with all the Showtime shows because of the Super Bowl.

Maybe it's something HBO encourages.

I remember a Saturday Night Live commercial parodying the hyperbolic critical accolades that the Sopranos was receiving at the time: "One day, The Sopranos will replace the very air we breathe to stay alive."

Yup, your right. My bad.

Duh, should have known that HBO repeats the hell out of their shows no matter what day. Not that it matters, but I can't imagine the ratings for tonight's airing will be very good.

I'm constantly surprised at how the super hot people who post here on DVDTAlk are so able to criticise an actress because her body doesn't fit the Victoria's secret ideal.

Pretty sure she's the actual every woman

She is every woman I don't want.

Alright, I'm getting back to YouTube and this Big N Toasted from Dunkin Donuts

Both dinner scenes were pretty well staged. Not a ton of laughs this week, but still a pretty solid episode.

The dinner scene with Jessa was hilarious and even with the big breakup being the most obvious plot in history it still worked for me. I liked Shosh finding out her boyfriend is homeless and that they love each other. The bathtub scene was sad and cute without being annoying.

Rumor is that she's going to go full frontal in the next episode.

Maybe for 50 year old women. For 25 years, she's not, thank god.

Re: Girls- It's a shame about Ray (HBO GO early premiere)

I don't mind her showing her tits in necessary scenes but I feel she may have a running inside joke with the producer that she has to show them at least once every episode. Like in the most random scenes like the one last week where she took her shirt off at a club and changed shirts with someone and then wore a knit see through shirt the rest of the episode. Did that really add to the storyline?

I am glad Jenna is now single again. Their fight was hilarious.

Please no more mention of butt plugs.

Patrick Wilson is in the next episode which sounds good to me.

No comment from anyone on one of the other girls finally showing some skin? At least I don't remember Jessa flashing a boob until now.

The Marnie/ex-bf story is killing me. It's like there's nothing going on for either character except them doing the back and forth thing. Really annoying.

After All Adventurous Women Do from last season, this episode is easily second best for me. Loved everything about it. I was thinking to myself towards the end if they'd throw in something to lighten the mood and, yes, they did. The snot gag had me rolling.

Re: Girls- It's a shame about Ray (HBO GO early premiere)

Just watched all of the first 2 seasons over the last couple weeks...I really enjoy the show, despite hating almost every character.

And I've gotta echo what others said above, Dunham might be the "average" woman overall, but she's well below average for a 20-something (at least compared to here in WI...and I'd imagine women in bigger cities outdo this place).

Later this season Shiri Appleby will save the season for those not liking Dunham's nude scenes

Probably my favorite episode of the series.
