I don't like "Girls." I don't like when it's compared to "Sex And The City," and I don't like hearing that it's the voice of my -- well, not generation, but demographic. And yet, I continue to watch it, mostly due to a prevailing sense that Lena Dunham has put in all those little things I find so irritating to force me to figure out why they irritate me.
This week, the girls headed to the Hamptons -- excuse me, The North Fork -- in an attempt to bond and cleanse their spirits. Sure, the weekend was exploding with narcissism, but it was also the funniest, most touching episode of "Girls" since Hannah and Marnie danced to Robyn together.
This week on "Girls," all the girls started taking life a little more seriously. Hannah landed a job at GQ, Jessa is employed, Marnie and Ray are having some semblance of a relationship and Shoshanna's ready to put her wild months behind her and find a boyfriend. They may be headed in the right direction, but "Free Snacks" wasn't without its challenges. Because in the world of "Girls," free snacks always come with a price, and the guy you want to date is always too dumb to find the library.
It has been 10 months since we last saw the girls of "Girls" (Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna and Jessa) "almost getting it kind of together." And aside for Jessa, who flat-out disappeared, they were starting to get it together. Shoshanna had finally mustered up the courage to end a relationship she wasn't happy in, Marnie and Charlie decided they were each others soulmates and Adam came to Hannah's rescue when she was in a state of extreme mental unrest that included an unfortunate DIY haircut and a Q-tip making its way a little too far into her ear.
