After a season chock-full of insecurities and instability, Girls ended on a rather optimistic note. Hannah, who's been feeling like she's living in the shadow of Adam's artistic success, receives exciting news about her future as a writer. "Two Plane Rides" doesn't end with anyone eating cupcakes or having a nervous breakdown, instead we're left with a feeling that...

Letting go is hard, especially for someone like Hannah. In this week's Girls, she tries to cope with Adam's absence, but it doesn't  go well for her. Meanwhile, Marnie is doing things! She's in her natural habitat, working at a trendy art gallery in Manhattan, and performing her music. Career-wise, things are going great for her, but Marnie's still unlucky in love....

It was only a matter of time before things went awry in Hannah and Adam's NYC-love-shack. On this week's Girls, Hannah goes the extra mile to spice up their sex life, but her little adventure creates more problems than it solves. Also Felicity Jones shows up as Jasper's neglected daughter, and she kills it. Here's what went down in "Role-Play."

Girls: Flo: Episode 9 Season 3 – TV Review

girls-la-3-3-14
Some of the best episodes of Girls have been those that stand alone. Sunday's "Flo" only featured a couple of regular characters, plus Hannah's obnoxious female relatives. Hannah goes upstate to spend some quality time with her dying grandmother, her mom, her aunts and her cousin. But what's meant to be support-filled bonding time, turns into cat fights about heirloom...

Girls: Beach House: Episode 7 Season 3 – TV Review

girls-1-la-2-16-14
Last night's Girls traveled, via jitney, to North Fork (not to be confused with the Hamptons, which are tacky according to Marnie). In "Beach House," the girls spend a wonderful weekend together à la Sex and the City. Unfortunately, they're too young and messed up to simply bond over cosmos. By the end of their getaway too many truths are...

Girls: Free Snacks: Episode 6 Season 3 – TV Review

Although the cast of Girls has a long way to go before becoming responsible adults, Season 3 has shown a positive shift in their childish behavior. In "Free Snacks," Hannah gets a real job at GQ, while Marnie and Ray try to start a relationship. Meanwhile, we see Jessa in action at work, and Shoshanna gets a new boyfriend.

Girls: Only Child: Episode 5 Season 3 – TV Review

In last night's Girls, Matt Costa's "Good Times" played over the credits, and let's just say whoever picked that song really outdid themselves. "Only Child" was only the beginning of a new transition period that awaits Hannah. So far, Season 3 has been all sunshine and rainbows for her, but as Costa's song goes "the good times are coming to an end."...

Girls: Dead Inside: Episode 4 Season 3 – TV Review

Published by

girls-la-1-27-14
There are two things that are inevitable in life – taxes and death. Last night's episode of Girls explores the latter. A "close friend" of Hannah's unexpectedly dies, but instead of grieving and feeling sad about it, she's more concerned with other, less important things. Adam, shocked about her callous reaction, attempts to make Hannah feel something, but it...

Sundance 2014: Happy Christmas - Movie Review

Published by

Happy Christmas
I love Anna Kendrick and Christmas movies, so Happy Christmas was a no-brainer for me. It's sassy and fast-paced, with a strong cast and an easy feel to it. It doesn't try too hard to be dramatic, but manages to be naturally by building on an unlikely friendship. If not for an unfinished feeling, I would have given this film a higher score.

Girls: She Said OK: Episode 3 Season 3 – TV Review

Published by

Girls Ö this ain't gonna end well Ö
A year older but none the wiser – that's Hannah Horvath for you. In last night's episode of Girls, Hannah turned 25, and Marnie threw a party in her honor. And of course there was drama (surprisingly though, no drugs). As we've seen in the past, celebrations on Girls never end well. In "She Said OK," it was Adam's emotional mess of a sister who stira up...

Girls: Females Only/Truth Or Dare: Episode 1/2 Season 3 – TV Review

Published by

girls-la-1-12-13
Sunday, Lena Dunham's wildly controversial show Girls returned to HBO for its third season. Right off the bat, there's a sense that this season's going to have a more emotionally stable tone. Hannah's dealing with her OCD, Marnie has her own apartment, Shoshanna's on the verge of graduation and Jessa's still alive (which is a great accomplishment...

News Roundup: Bradley Cooper Rescues 'Jane Got A Gun,' New 'Great Gatsby'...

Bradley Cooper
Bradley Cooper is a very busy man. He's set to star in David O. Russell's next project, and has also been cast in Cameron Crowe's upcoming (and still untitled) film. But that's not stopping him from saving Jane Got A Gun. The western project has gone through a lot of changes this past month; Jude Law was the latest to quit the project. But word is Cooper is stepping to save the day....

Girls: Together: Episode 10 Season 2 – TV Review

Published by

Girls – Hannah
The second season finale of Girls felt much like a romantic comedy. But there were no weddings or fancy parties this time. Instead, the men of the show performed grand gestures of love and former couples reunited, while one broke up. After a dark sophomore season, "Together" was the light at the end of the tunnel we were all yearning for.

Girls: On All Fours: Episode 9 Season 2 – TV Review

Published by

Girls
Last night's episode of Girls wasn't for the faint of heart. Lena Dunham may have been dubbed the new Woody Allen, but "On All Fours" had the dark tone of a David Lynch film. Hannah has hit a new low. She's in such a messed up frame of mind that she makes the cast from Girl, Interrupted seem OK. Sadly, she's not the only one who's about...

Girls: It's Back: Episode 8 Season 2 – TV Review

Girls – TOP
Last night, Girls revealed some juicy information. "It's Back" roped in Hannah's parents, who highlighted a surprising detail about her life. Meanwhile Marnie, who's still dressing like a magician's assistant, revealed her true passion.

Girls: Video Games: Episode 7 Season 2 – TV Review

Published by

Girls – Hannah and Jessa – TOP
The relationship between Hannah and Jessa is rarely explored on Girls. It's unfortunate because Lena Dunham and Jemima Kirke have vibrant chemistry and their onscreen friendship is unreserved. Last night's episode "Video Games" was set in the country; Hannah and Jessa get away from the bustling city and ex-husbands like Thomas-John.

Girls: Boys: Episode 6 Season 2 – TV Review

Published by

Girls – "Boys" – Adam and Ray
Once again, Girls has shifted its focus. "Boys" explored the funny and complex lives of the males on the show, specifically Ray and Adam's. They bonded over women, dogs and their own "weird looks." It was one of the strangest bromances we've ever seen on TV -- and that's saying something.

Girls: One Man's Trash: Episode 5 Season 2 – TV Review

Published by

Girls – Lena Dunham
At one point during last night's Girls, Hannah Horvath said, mid-makeout, "I am so confused." That's exactly what "One Man's Trash" was--confusing. Once again, Lena Dunham focused on her character and ignored the rest of the marvelous cast. Patrick Wilson guest starred as Hannah's latest love interest, but even he couldn't keep us from missing Shoshanna's quirk.

Girls: It's A Shame About Ray: Episode 4 Season 2 – TV Review

Published by

Girls – Lena Dunham (TOP)
It's been said that HBO's Girls is like nothing else on TV. Last night's "It's A Shame About Ray" lived up to the hype as the series' best episode yet. The emotion and reality of unstable 20-somethings was beautifully executed. Beautifully. If you're still mumbling that Lena Dunham is a talentless rich girl, you need to stop. Admit it, she has a special knack...
