Girls Watch: Season 2 , Episode 6 - Boys
Just when you thought the dust had settled, last week's episode of the Girls once again got everybody talking. And talking. To call "One Man's Trash" divisive would be an understatement and a lot of the backlash resulted from people not buying physical capability of the two leads. Something was off with "One Man's Trash," however, not due to anyone's looks but because the episode felt like a writing class exercise more than an organic development for the show. This week though, we check in on the rest of the cast, specifically the "Boys"...
Girls Watch: Season 2 , Episode 5 - One Man's Trash
After riding shotgun for most of the second season, Hannah took a bit of a backseat last week as the rest of the Girls and their problems were the focus of "It's A Shame About Ray." The resulting episode was fantastic, with all the various threads seamlessly stitched together and each balancing perfectly between hilarious and heart-wrenching. The best instalments seem to occur when Girls operates as a full-on ensemble, reinforced by "One Man's Trash" which brought Hannah back to the forefront and delivered the least successful episodes so far this season.
Girls Watch: Season 2 , Episode 4 - It's A Shame About Ray
Even though the Superbowl and Girls probably don't share the same audience, for the most part anyway, HBO was kind enough to air "It's A Shame About Ray" early to avoid competing with the biggest event in American sports. The fourth episode of Season 2 first aired on Saturday night but those who missed it and/or couldn't care less about the Ravens versus the 49ers, could still tune into "It's A Shame About Ray" during the usual time-slot and catch-up on the aftermath of the cocaine fuelled, uh, fun of "Best Friend."
Girls' Lena Dunham Writing Another New York Project
It looks like HBO it-girl Lena Dunham is going to take advantage of her success with Girls. If you are a fan of the series or Dunham yourself, you may be interested in her newest project, also in development at HBO. Dunham will also team up with her Girls co-showrunner Jenni Konner for the series, which will be set in New York. At this point, you may be wondering how the project in development will actually differ from the show the two women already have on air, but it actually wonít be as close as you might guess.
Girls And Enlightened Episodes Debut Early On HBO Go And On Demand
In case you haven't heard, there's this little football game being played on Sunday called the Superbowl, and since it's pretty much the most televised event of the year, that means there is usually a coinciding change to regular scheduled programming. Not all the networks are going to fill the slot with reruns, however, and HBO as worked out a a few different ways that will allow viewers not to miss a single beat with Girls or Enlightened.
Girls Season 2 Promo: Episode 4 - It's A Shame About Ray
While there were appearances by Jessa and Shoshanna during last night's episode of Girls, "Bad Friend" focused mainly on Hannah's drug exploits with Elijah and Marnie's romp with her artist friend. From the preview for next Sunday's episode, "It's a Shame About Ray," it looks like Jessa and Shoshanna will be featured a bit more prominently.
Girls Watch: Season 2 , Episode 3 - Bad Friend
Since it hasn't really changed, Girls certainly hasn't silenced its critics but those who found themselves fast fans of the Golden Globe winning first season should be more than happy with the start of the second. Mostly. It doesn't mean there haven't been bumps in the road, or lines on a dirty bar toilet seat. "Bad Friend" was a lot of fun and featured a more than rewarding conclusion, however, it was betrayed by lacklustre subplot that couldn't live up to Hannah's coke-fueled journey.
Lena Dunham Says Girls Will Get a Third Season
Although HBO hasnít given Girls an official third season renewal, yet, word is that itís happening, which really should come as no surprise. Lena Dunham, who picked up a Golden Globe for her work on the show the same night it won Best Comedy, confirmed that there will be a third season on Thursday.
TV Producers Casting Girls-Inspired Reality Show In New York
If there's one thing Girls does pretty well, it's capture the humor in the (perceived) reality of being a young woman in the big city. But what about a show that captures the reality of the reality of being a young woman in the big city? It looks like a production company is aiming to do that as a casting notice has gone up inviting "real life 'Girls'" to submit their photo and information.
Girls Season 2: Bad Friend Preview Has Hannah Looking For Cocaine
Cocaine appears to be on Hannah's mind in the upcoming episode of Girls. The promo for "Bad Friend" has Hannah on the hunt for some blow, which may or may not have something to do with her plan to expose the world to her personal vulnerabilities to the entire internet. How the two are connected is unclear, but there may be dancing involved.
Girls Watch: Season 2 , Episode 2 - I Get Ideas
Girls not only returned last Sunday with an excellent second season premiere but also bagged two major awards at the Golden Globes. The newly minted recipient of the Best Actress and Best Comedy statuettes already had a lot to live up to and now that it's sporting some hardware, Lena Dunham and her series surely have their work cut out for them with the rest of Season 2. Can "I Get Ideas" live up to the increasingly high standards?
Girls Season 2, Episode 2: Shoshanna Tells A Story In Clip From I Get Ideas
What's going on with Shoshanna and Ray? That is one of the questions posed during last Sunday's second season premiere of Girls. The start of their relationship wasn't exactly conventional, what with Shoshanna accidentally smoking crack and Ray helping her out and then eventually developing feelings for her, but the two seem to have formed a connection since then, and based on this clip from Sunday night's episode, there's even more ahead for them.
Girls Season 2 Premiere Ratings Down From Last Season
It was a great night for Girls, with two Golden Globes wins for the HBO comedy, including Best Actress for Lena Dunham as well as Best Comedy. And while that was happening (on east coast time, anyway) the second season premiered. While the series had a winning night at the Globes, its ratings weren't nearly as successful. The show's viewership seems to have dipped down a bit from its first season premiere.
Golden Globe Winners: The 5 Biggest Surprises
The Golden Globes is an exciting ceremony for a TV fan, as we get to see the stars and producers of some of our favorite TV shows honored with awards for their efforts. It's always good when we, the viewers, agree with the Hollywood Foreign Press on their choices for the past year's best of the best. But it's not always easy to predict which way they'll vote and whether or not they get it right is certainly subject to opinion and debate. And sometimes our picks don't line up with the HFPA's choices.
Girls Watch: Season 2 Premiere - It's About Time
Saying that Girls had a big night last night would be a bit of an understatement. Not only did Lena Dunham's series return for its second season but the HBO comedy also racked up a two major awards at the Golden Globes. And if you thought the series was under scrutiny before, now that it won Best Comedy audiences will surely be looking through each installment through an even more critical microscope.
