The race to find a silver bullet to solve the “Where are all the girls in science and engineering?” puzzle is fast and furious.

“I was so nervous about [filming Marnie’s masturbation scene], Lena [Dunham] brought me in the dressing room and we took turns being up against the door. I would go ‘Do you think it should look like this,’ and then she’d say ‘No, no, no, no, hey, you sit down, I’m gonna try it,’ and… READ MORE »

“It surprises me how stupid people can be. It surprises me how many women hate other women, or feel uncomfortable with themselves. There’s a good portion of women who are offended by the show, which I do find strange. I read them because it’s fascinating. ‘Like Patrick Wilson would sleep with her!’ You know what? READ MORE »

Lena Dunham is naked, or partially naked, fairly frequently on “Girls.” (So is Jemima Kirke. Both Allison Williams and Zosia Mamet keep themselves more covered up.) Some of Lena’s nudity is during sex scenes, while a bunch of others are when her character is changing clothes, sitting on the toilet, or in the bath or… READ MORE »

I am the rare Brooklyn-dwelling twenty-something female who has seen no more than three (3) episodes of the hit HBO series, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate how nicely those “Girls” clean up, right?

I can’t believe “Girls”‘ third season starts in less than two months. It feels like just yesterday that the show was making its debut to a chorus of equal parts “IT’S THE BEST THING ON TV EVER” and “THIS SHIT DOESN’T REPRESENT ME OR ANYONE I KNOW.” So what’s ahead for “Girls” in season three?
