So are you saying television should only have attractive female body types? What kind of message is that sending to viewers?

I think that's the exact issue she's trying to address. Maybe you're uncomfortable viewing that body type but maybe for someone else they're uncomfortable viewing Marnie's body type. Making a generalization of what should and shouldn't be on TV based upon an ideal body type is exactly the discussion she's trying to have.

The fact that you don't like it is the reaction she wants you to have initially. At the beginning of the show everyone was like: "oh wow she shouldn't be wearing that" or "she's not attractive at all". Five seasons later I think viewers (at least myself and the people I've talked to) generally are becoming desensitized to her nudity and it's just part of her character. I think that transition was her intention from the beginning.

I don't think the point of the show is to give you something to jerk off to.

I'm just extremely shallow and judgmental when it comes to body types (basically fat people if you want to make it simple). I'm not going to not watch a good show or movie because of naked fat chicks...and it's not going to change my overall perception of the show either (if Hannah was a 10...Girls would still be mediocre).

But I'm also not going to say that seeing her naked doesn't affect my viewing pleasure...because it does. I cringe when I see a giant muffin top in real life...so I do the same when I see Lena Dunham in pretty much every scene of girls. There literally isn't a single scene where she isn't wearing (or not wearing) something that doesn't draw attention to her physical "unattractiveness". It's almost gotten comical.

I mean it was pretty standard quality for what the episodes have been this season, I just think as a series finale it was garbage. I've kept up with this show because I think it can be pretty damn funny at times, not for any drama and certainly not because I feel any sort of investment in Hannah's journey, in fact I'd say I've kept watching despite Hannah. The real appeal for the show to me has always been the side characters, pretty much everything I enjoyed about the show came from them, so this finale just felt completely void of everything that kept me watching to this point, and thus not very satisfying.

Finale needed more Elijah, I mean it's the damn finale, give the people what they want.


And Ray, Is like to see a Ray and Amy Bryant spinoff, I'd watch that.

I would 100% watch an odd couple style spinoff with Ray and Elijah as roommates.

Aidy Bryant.

And the finale was fine. I don't know what you would expect.

Final season was pretty good. Elijah and Ray are fucking hilarious. Adam Driver is an amazing actor. Jessa and Shosh had their best seasons. Allison Williams is stupid hot and also plays the most annoying character ever. Lena Dunham is great...but I'm glad I don't have to see her naked for a while.

Allison Williams has become way too skinny to be considered stupid hot

She got skinny between seasons (1 and 2 was it) which the writing made fun of a bit, but did they show any scenes where her ribs were poking out or something, or are you mostly making fun of jbrick's habit of talking shit about women he considers fat and glorifying the opposite?

There was one episode 2-3 back before the finale where I noticed her arms looked absolutely skeletal, in an extremely unhealthy way, I had trouble even looking at them. She's always been skinny, but that was the only time that it's really stuck out in my head and made me think she might need some help
