I’m not sure about you, but I was super psyched about the latest SNL with Host Lena Dunham and Musical Guest The National; a double win in my book. The promos for the episode - featuring Lena and Kate McKinnon - had me for-real cry-laughing. I thought I would never get over the departure of Kristen Wiig in 2012, but I think I'll be alright if this comedic genius continues. 2014 has been a pretty awesome year for Dunham: she released ...

Female friendships are these amazing, complicated, weird and wonderful things that heavily influence most of our lives and yet are so often misrepresented (if presented at all) in popular media. It's not always sleepovers and mimosas; friendships are challenging, and as we grow up and change, so do our relationships. An honest look at these relationships arrives in the new show Doll & Em.
Real life friends Emily Mortimer and Dolly Wells have teamed up to ... Read More

The episode begins with a cheeky shoutout to the world of Wes Anderson: a montage of Marnie preparing a spooky-yet-eleganza beachside manse for a girls-only weekend, complete with a banana-yellow title frame and chipper, and Tenenbaums-y strings in the background. It’s already clear that shit’s gonna get weird.
Now settled in that strange place where quirk meets melancholy, the crew arrives. Jessa has decided to ride in the back of the bus “for ... Read More

It’s been a wild couple of weeks, what with Hannah being a dick at a funeral, lots of disappointing professional news, Caroline’s inevitable (though, I can sense, impermanent) removal from the scene, and Marnie falling into Ray’s surprisingly willing arms.
Since her grand book plans are officially kaput, Hannah gets a job writing advertorials for GQ. The new gig comes with a closet full of free snacks, which conveniently gives the Girls ... Read More

Just a quick note: here in Girls Recap Land, we recap the most recent episodes...which means that there will be many, many spoilers. If you have not yet seen the episode and you care about the purity of your experience, we suggest that you don’t read the following, because it will, quite literally, be a play-by-play. K? K.

Hey, look: it’s another peaceful morning chez Horvath-Sackler—you know, cutting your lover’s hair and weaving it into a cute little love-rug, like happy couples do. Suddenly, Adam’s sister stumbles in, having barely escaped the clutches of an abusive boyfriend, and lady is clearly mid-psychotic episode. All signs point to changing the locks, but Hannah, for some reason, chooses this moment to be compassionate. Sure, she can ... Read More

It appears my favorite sassiest and most "illustrated" resident of the Plaza Hotel is finally getting her own documentary, and at the helm is none other than Girls star Lena Dunham.
The Vogue cover girl recently revealed that she will be working alongside Girls co-writer and executive producer Jenni Konner on a documentary about Eloise illustrator Hilary Knight. An american illustrator, Knight became a household name in the literary world when he began ... Read More

Remember how there were never any black people on Girls? Remember how Lena Dunham was all “But I am white so I can’t understand what a black girl’s life would be like? Remember that lame-ass attempt to address the issue with the inclusion of Sandy (played by Donald Glover) as Dunham's love interest for a measly 1.5 episodes?
Well it looks like we might finally get to kick these memories to the curb! In a recent interview with Ebony ... Read More
