Girls Season 2 *Spoilers*

I really liked the show last year but either it changed or I changed because I found the first episode to be very pretentious.

Also the whole "sex" scene with Marnie was so distracting with the actress trying to cover herself up from the camera all the time. OK I get it if you are an actress and you don't want to do nudity then the director or the cinematographer need to block it better. Or even leave your bra on but her constantly covering herself with her hands when the guy would move was like she was destroying the 4th wall. Or even don't be a prude, not need for gratuitous nudity but at least take the English actress approach that incidental nudity is fine.

I hate the show, but I can't stop watching it.
BTW, it's been very pretentious from Ep1.

Something was off for me as well. Perhaps it's that I literally like no characters right now and want them all to fail miserably at all they do.

BINGO!!!

That's what's missing from Girls...a character I'm rooting for. They just make me not really care what happens to them.

It wasn't as bad last season for some reason. Right now I'm rooting for the protagonist's "love interest" to murder her, flee to the west coast, change his identity, and enroll in a local community college.

I think the Marnie nudity thing was okay because the scene with Elijah was intentionally weird. I can believe that she would be a little 'off' about getting with him, and especially at the end she would be covering herself.

I usually dislike Marnie but thought she was okay in this first episode.

This may be a threadcrap but I watched the first couple of episodes of season 1 to find out what all the fuss was about. I abandoned it for this exact reason. I didn't like a single character on it.

Just not my world I guess (or a world that I'm interested in learning about).

I enjoyed the first season. The first episode sucked. We will see how it goes.

I don't think I threadcrapped, but perhaps I did.

I was agreeing with an existing post.
I do watch the show.

I think the first episode felt a bit more 'predictable' than the first season.

I watched about 80% of the first episode of season 1. I hated the show. I have heard a lot of good about the show recently. I've been thinking about going back and trying to watch season 1 again.

Some people simply won't like the show. You don't have to feel bad about not liking it.

Of COURSE you were!! The only POSSIBLE INTERPRETATION of your post is that it was a SNARKY COMMENTARY on people who have the TEMERITY AND GALL to criticize a show on the internet!!!

And you can tell that my theory is EXTRA-TRUE because of all the CAPS!!!!! (And exclamation points!!)

Me too.
I found the characters whiny and pretentious. And frankly hard to watch long-term. I am not getting all the accolades the show gets.

im up to the ep where the one girl gets 11K for divorcing that guy. his parents were real winners, the dad no doubt wanted a 3some and the mom just wants her boy back home with her.

the 2 girls in the tub at the end was really gross once they did the snot stuff, i wanted to FF but was hoping for more..

i'm so glad nothing with hanna's ex in the ep i just watched, he really disturbs me. i guess marnie is not allowing us to see 'anything' because she's too shy?

I really don't get it. I do not like the show, yet I am driven to watch it. For example, this week's episode, I just wanted to smack Lena Dunham for wearing that insane garbage bag of an outfit. Stacy and Clinton would not be impressed.
