This season, LD and her motley crew have tested the boundaries of the gals-in-the-city genre: we’ve seen elements of family drama, buddy comedy, and horror (yes, I’m still having Q-Tip nightmares). This episode, we go full-on rom-com. Where’s Shane West when you need him? (Hint: not here.)

I’m loath to re-open the box of shittiness that was last week’s episode, but I feel ... Read More
Constantly in the media spotlight, always controversial and ever-addicting Lena Dunham sat down for an interview with Playboy. Interviewer David Rensin talked to Dunham about feminism, Girls, men, and, of course, sex.
In 20 questions, Rensin explores how Dunham first learned about sex, how she would react if she woke up tomorrow in the body of a Victoria’s Secret model, and her role as the writer/director of Girls.
Girls is my current TV ... Read More
Connecticut’s Fox News tweeted an apology yesterday morning for the controversy over its coverage of an International Women’s Day march in Hartford. The coverage, a 13-second clip of a close-up shot of a woman’s breasts, objectified women the very day that around the world women were celebrating their achievements and the struggles that they’ve overcome. Apparently Fox CT thought that International Women’s Day could be summarized simply ... Read More

UCB mainstays Jacobson and Glazer will star as awkward twenty-somethings trying to keep their collective shit together. Broad City has already gotten some major attention for its “sneak attack feminism” and the show was ... Read More

We were convinced the brilliant-but-cancelled Veronica Mars would never get a proper conclusion, but it looks like our favorite sleuth will return very soon. After years of deliberation, Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell are taking action to get a movie off the ground. This morning, Thomas launched a Kickstarter to raise $2 million for the project, and while that may seem like a lot of money, diehard fans have been campaigning to bring Veronica back since the show's ...

Pictured: the face I'm making right now.
Guys, we need to talk about this episode. Real talk. Help me work this through, because whoa, Nelly, am I having trouble doing it on my own.
Shoshanna confesses her misdeeds to Ray. Kinda.
“I held hands with a doorman!” she exclaims. SURE, Shosh. We’ve all held hands with a doorman, ifyaknowwhaddamean. Ray thinks it’s cute and kisses her patronizingly on the forehead. Shoshanna is still filled with ... Read More

Check out the video below!Image via: ... Read More

For the past few months, my Facebook and Twitter feeds have been rife with enthusiastic praise for the Netflix political drama, House of Cards. I have no shame in admitting that I devoured the show’s entire first season in a single weekend. The show is run-through with amazing performances from Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, and Kate Mara (among others), brilliant writing, and bonkers plot twists that, fair warning, I might touch on in this post.
One of my ... Read More

It’s hot in the city. Tempers are flaring, milk is spoiling, and deadlines are approaching—and it appears that everything’s about to come to a head.
Shosh, Ray, and Marnie discuss Jessa’s disappearance. Nobody seems to be all that worried, which is convenient, because neither am I. Marnie is wearing stupid-looking pigtails. It’s not a good look—but then again, neither is stalking mournfully off into the sunset when Shoshanna ... Read More
