Girls Recap: Sins of the Father
I almost started my recap of this week’s Girls by wondering if the episode title — “Video Games” — was Lena Dunham‘s nod to Lana Del Rey, a fellow female artist whose ubiquitous hit of the same name generated an inordinate amount of debate about whether she was a genius or just a lucky hack.
But then I stopped myself: READ MORE

Girls Recap: 'Look at the Doll. Describe Her. How Is She Feeling?' 'She Feels Sassy.' 'No, She's Sad.'
We’re barely into Season 2, but I think it’s safe to say HBO’s Girls does sex and drugs and friendship about as brilliantly/awkwardly (brawkwardly? nah…) as any show in the history of television.
This week’s episode, “Bad Friend,” featured a doll standing watch over a comically traumatic sex-scene-as-art-piece; cocaine being clichédly/grossly snorted off a nightclub toilet seat; and several chemically induced, dubiously advised …READ MORE
