That was truly vomit-inducing. And once again, the auteur self-indulging to the max, crowding out all the other characters. It was bad enough with her flouncing in the buff with Adam. Now she has male models throwing themselves at her hideous visage. I've had enough of this self-congratulatory fantasy world. FREE MARNIE!

Maybe writing and starring in her own creation is the only way she could get laid. :shrug:

Whatever the truth of it, it sure comes off like that! I'm sure there are tons of ladies in the Sisterhood of the Size 18 Ya Ya Pants who hold Lena Dunham as some kind of goddess for pretending blobulous ugliness is erotically desirable. Good luck to 'em. I'll tune back in when Marnie gets some face time.

I appreciate Dunham's attempt to make unattractive girl-nerd Hannah's journey through quarter-life a quest for self-worth and self-fulfillment. But it works in context of a balance with the other characters, this should not be a virtual one-woman show. Moreover, her blatant attempt to sell herself as some kind of porn queen is grotesque and pathetic at best. She's clearly from the generation that got a gold star for just showing up. A more mature artist would understand balance and discretion. But she's just a kid with no experience or maturity in the field, and HBO handed her the keys to the candy store. The result is uneven and often appalling.

Ouch!

Probably true, tho. Your best line to date. :)
It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

So did anyone end up watching the rest of season 2? All I can say is that it got very strange.

I saw next to last ep with the controversial "On all fours" scene. Obviously what they're preaching to us in a very heavy-handed amateurish way is "the only chick who could possibly stand Adam is Hannah and vice-versa--they are star-crossed". Good writing would not lay this on with a trowel, but the writer is a kid with no experience, and it shows.
