HBOGirls3 540x315 Girls: Sneak Peeks For Season 2

Sneak peeks from HBO’s Girls‘ second season are beginning to pop up on line, including the above image, which tells us there will be at least a few more episodes featuring the strangely compelling–and still shirtless, Adam Sackler (Adam Driver), who, we’re told by EW is “recovering from being hit by a car last season, and he’s still feeling rejected by Hannah (Lena Dunham).” More hints at what to expect include the following tidbits:

When Girls returns, Jessa receives a wedding gift from her new husband, Thomas-John (Chris O’Dowd): puppies! Also in the mix, Hannah’s ex-boyfriend/gay best friend, Elijah (Andrew Rannells), has moved in with her, and they’re throwing a housewarming party, complete with a karaoke performance of a Sarah McLachlan song. ”Of course, Hannah being Hannah, the party cannot go successfully,” Dunham reveals. ”Even though she made cheesy pretzels.”

Like we did for season 1, expect weekly analysis of the fashion featured in each episode. See a couple more sneak peek images (including shots of the puppies) on the next page.

HBO Girls Season 2 Preview–Returning January 13th

16 October 2012, 15.07 | Posted in Television, celebrity | No comments »

 

This is a pretty bad sneak peek (not to mention it came out like a month ago though I do believe the official January 13th premiere date is new news) but it’s nice to see that the character who played Hannah’s boyfriend, Adam, has returned.

And what is writer/show creator Lena Dunham who plays the part of Hannah up to these days? Besides undergoing “Citizen’s Arrest” by Usmagazine for a recent outfit, she’s taking an “old-fashioned” European bus tour, according to her Twitter.

HBO Girl’s: ‘You’re So Fucking Gross….’

The gifs that come out of this show are so great because they bring forward the awesome writing that often gets lost in the mix (and the sometimes murky audio!). This one is from episode 10, the season finale, it’s yet another bathroom scene, shot just after Jessa marries. Via.

HBO Girls: Jessa’s Wedding

GirlsJessa2 540x303 HBO Girls: Jessas Wedding

As promised, here is my follow-up post on HBO Girl’s, which pulls together some events from episode 9 and 10, the season finale. I guess we can start with the chronologically most recent event, which is Jessa’s surprise wedding in the final episode. Given her character, her dress and whole look is entirely predictable, from the vintage hippy dress to the flower headband, which fine, let’s just leave it at that.

What I’m mad at is the wedding itself. It was predicated in episode 9 with a lecturing talk by the character played by Kathryn Hahn, the jilted mom, who told Jessa she sought out dramatic affairs to “distract yourself from becoming the person you’re meant to be.” At the moment, I couldn’t decide if her talk was supposed to be funny because of how cliched and stupid it was or a realistic represenation of a passive-aggressive girl-on-girl hate crime speech, which one could at least argue was justifiable given the events that led up to it.

Whatever that scene was, I’m still aggravated that it motivated Jessa’s decision to marry, which strikes me also as a girl-on-girl crime, albeit one committed by the show’s star and writer Lena Dunham aka Hanna, to put the show’s free-spirited pretty girl in her place. Granted, while Jessa had to experience some character developing angst at some point, joining her in holy matrimony with the repulsive, boring, mixtape guy seems over-the-top mean girlish.

Though on that note, knowing the clever young woman that Dunham is showing us she is, she’ll probably take the Jessa story line in a direction next season that makes total sense and ultimately serves to makes me adore her character even more.

And just on a sort of endnote because I’ve written about this show’s wrestling with its connection to Sex & the City, take note in the scene in which Jessa is visited by her former employer she is in the midst of redecorating Shoshanna’s aprtment, an act that includes taking down the Sex & the City poster prominantly featured in the first episode.  So there goes that. An interesting symbolic act but probably by no means the last time Girls debates its HBO godmother.

Video: HBO Girls ‘Slim Pants’ Episode 10

20 June 2012, 01.00 | Posted in tee-shirt | No comments »


In serious catch-up mode here so this post on HBO Girl’s No. 10 will be followed a second one from the same episode. (I’m not trying to do an episode-by-episode analysis because that doesn’t work for me.) If you’re at all keeping up, you know that this series has a rather unique relationship with fashion, somewhat love-hate-ish if you will, which I’ve totally enjoyed analyzing.  

In Episode 9, character Hannah arrives at her new coffee shop job only to be dressed down–literally–by her boss and friend, Ray who so far is the funniest character on this very charming show. Here are some highlights from his lecture on appropriate attire for a barista:

Ray: And don’t do some shit where you come back wearing grey flannel sweat pants and a Taylor Swift tee-shirt to be a dick. I know all the dick moves, don’t be a dick. Okay? Just a nice, a nice cute top.
Hannah: A cute top?
Ray: Yea, a cute top. Stop by an American Apparel if you have to. And get a slim leg. Jeans with a slim leg. I want you back in an hour. Slim leg! Okay? Slim leg!

Not as much deep analysis here, but pure funniness in my opinion as it relates to the concept of ironic fashion choices, aka dressing like a “dick.”
