Between “Game of Thrones,” “Mad Men,” “Girls,” “Veep” and all the rest, it’s impossible to watch all the good TV that airs on Sunday night. (I’d also include “Long Island Medium” in that, but nobody asked.) That’s why the folks at Jest.com made this television mash-up which incorporates characters from all your fave Sunday night… READ MORE »

I guess Lady Juggernaut and “Girls” creator Lena Dunham had a birthday last week, and to celebrate she decided to throw herself a birthday party. At spin class. Yes, that’s right, Dunham invited her friends to celebrate her annual name day (as the “Game of Thrones” folk call it) by making them get together and… READ MORE »

“Ninety percent of the time when I go on dates, I’m by myself thinking, I could be reading my book instead,” Zosia Mamet, who plays the naive one on “Girls” (and the lesbian-ish one on “Mad Men”), said last week on “Conan.” Oh, honey. We know. We have been there. Oh, have we been there. The… READ MORE »

“Something I wanted to avoid was tokenism in casting. If I had one of the four girls, if, for example, she was African-American, I feel like — not that the experience of an African-American girl and a white girl are drastically different, but there has to be specificity to that experience [that] I wasn’t able… READ MORE »

I’m happy to report that despite the early backlash, “Girls” just keeps getting better and better. Last night’s episode started with Hannah being texted a photo of Adam’s penis — only to have him text her again to apologize … because it wasn’t meant for her. Then, at her new job, Hannah is expected to… READ MORE »

I have never watched HBO’s new show “Girls.”  Not because I don’t want to — I’m actually excited to see a new female-centered TV show that allows actresses to play rich and diverse characters.  But unfortunately, the current role I play in real life, that of a struggling comic/actress, does not afford me the opportunity… READ MORE »

Last night’s episode of “Girls” was, I think, the strongest of the series so far, with — SPOILER ALERT! — Hannah (Lena Dunham) both finding out that she has HPV and that her ex-boyfriend is gay. Meanwhile, Marnie (Allison Williams) was tempted by Jorma Taccone’s artist character, Booth Jonathan, who told her,  “I want you to… READ MORE »

For the past week, women’s media has pretty much been dominated by talk of Lena Dunham’s new show “Girls.” But newsflash! There’s other crap going on! Like the fact that this year’s prestigious Cannes Film Festival features absolutely zero films by women. That’s right: of the 23 films up for Cannes’ Very Important Palm D’OrREAD MORE »

“When we made [“Girls”]t, we always knew that it was a show you should fight about. It was built to be a show that you’d have to defend or argue about — for some people, it would make them angry — and we go over that terrain for the course of the 10 episodes. So hopefully people… READ MORE »

The “Girls” premiere on Sunday night left me underwhelmed. I lived in New York City in my 20s and I expected to relate to the show. But I didn’t. Not by a long shot. Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham) whined and pouted her way through the episode, balking at the idea of weaning herself off her… READ MORE »

I’ve been trying on men lately like Goldilocks testing out chairs and porridge, vacillating between one extreme and the other — scalding hot and limply cold, too soft and too damn hard.

Sunday night’s premiere episode of HBO’s new comedy “Girls” drove home this idea of extremes when it comes to self-selecting men: the… READ MORE »

HBO’s new show “Girls” premiered last night, and while we enjoyed seeing this modern, messier take on the “Sex and the City” formula — group of female friends deal with dating and relationship drama in New York City — sometimes the realities of the dating world can be a bit cringe-inducing (albeit relatable). In this inaugural episode we… READ MORE »

So. Did you watch the premiere of “Girls” last night? I did and I loved it. I thought the writing was fresh and realistic and funny — like, I laughed out loud and I rarely do that when I’m watching TV alone and not being egged on by other peoples’ laughter — and the overarching… READ MORE »

Hello, my name is Alexandra Gekas and I am a single woman living in New York City who used to watch “Sex and the City.” I can assure you that I did not come to New York City to live the life of “Sex in the City.” But I also did not know just how… READ MORE »

“People are saying this is ‘Sex and the City’ for the next generation,” said Conan O’Brien, speaking to Lena Dunham, on last night’s episode of “Conan.” The Los Angeles Times called Dunham’s show “Girls” “the uncomfortably true voice of millennial women.” And The New Yorker attacked “Girls” for its lack of inclusivity: “‘Girls’ also paints… READ MORE »

“I think Sarah Silverman had a quote where she was like, ‘Sometimes with an old guy with misogyny you’re just like, “You cute old guy.

Hey, sorry, everybody, but if you were planning on inviting me to hang out on Sunday, April 15, I won’t be able to make it. Or any Sunday thereafter for at least a few months. See, “Girls” premieres this coming Sunday and, well, this extended trailer has managed to make me even more psyched than… READ MORE »

Oh, Claire. Just yesterday I was fawning over your honest, funny, totally relatable interview with ASOS. You looked simultaneously adorable and enviably cool. You called yourself a “sales slut”; I identified. The Preen dress you wore last night to the premiere of “Girls,” however, was a different story. A really, really different story — it… READ MORE »
