Every character, including the attractive one, is cringe-worthy. This show is like nails on a chalkboard. Borderline unbearable. The whole alpha hipster scene was laughable. Only redeeming part was the 8 seconds that were implying the girl was fingering herself.

I only watch because I am a good fiance.

This is not a show that I would call good.

Some parts made me smirk. But it appears that it, and people who really really like it, think this show is far deeper than it actually is.

i have a hard time dogging on a show that tries to maintain even a tiny bit of realism and/or believability, so i'll watch it for a while.

I was speaking on a series level. I agree the last 2 seasons of entourage were shit but even then it was still more watchable than this shit

Entourage was basically lifestyle porn, with paper thin characters and the same jokes repeated ad nauseam. It was a fine turn-off-your-brain show for a couple seasons before they got totally complacent, but there's more wit and intelligence in 5 minutes of Girls than there is in 5 episodes of Entourage.

Nobody's claiming it's rocket science, I said it's way smarter than Entourage, and frankly that's not a particularly high bar. I can go into more detail about why the dialogue and direction on Girls is smarter than Entourage's formula of ass shot, dick joke, weed smoke plus a cameo if you want.

Yes; but like you said, you can turn your brain off for entourage.

You implied you have to turn it on for girls.

you dont

You don't have to turn your brain on to enjoy Community either, doesn't change the fact that it's way smarter than Big Bang Theory.

I don't think this is like the best show ever or that it is super deep, but it is very well written comedy/drama

the writing in Entourage was not good

It's your typical regurgitated Judd Apatow bullshit for stupid 20something females who believe they deserve a Sex And The City lifestyle for majoring in Women's Studies and listening to bands you never heard of.

It tries so heard to be intelligent and witty that it comes across vapid and nonsensical. None of the characters are endearing or noteworthy.

Regurgitated Judd Apatow bullshit?

You're aware he does not write or direct the show?

You're aware the humor is totally different from typical Apatow humor?

Pikey, Lokken, and BoobsR_gr8: nobody in this thread has indicated that Girls provides some sort of deep, mind-blowing insight or even that it's wildly original and special.

We just like the show.

Also, it's strange how puffed up you guys are about all this. What's your damage?

I myself am not puffed up about anything. I just gave my opinion about how the show came off to me and gave an observation based on others reactions.

Its called discussing the show. I've not said its bad or not entertaining. Nor did I chastise anyone for saying they enjoyed it.

In short, shut the fuck up.

I mean, that's fine. But expect a discussion on it if other people disagree with those kind of statements (not directed to you, but to her for saying those kind of opinions don't exist)

I'm in the middle on this show, honestly. The extremes on both sides are a bit much. It's not the best show ever but there are TONS of shows worse than this so all the hate is pretty stupid. I'm mostly annoyed at prominent internet sites/critics and their tone of how they're telling us we should like it and we're wrong if we don't.

Who is acting like it makes them feel really witty and intelligent? Who thinks the show is really deep?

And you're not actually discussing the show. You're just criticizing imaginary people. Like, if I went into the Game of Thrones thread, and said, "Game of Thrones is not what I would call a good show. It's tolerable, but the people who like it seem to believe that it makes them nerdy and special when they're really not."

determining whether or not something is 'deep' is a largely personal matter and telling people that the show is "not as deep as they think it is" and that it falsely makes them feel witty and intelligent is pretty insulting and "puffed up."

are you butthurt someone calling it smarter than Entourage or something?

I was actually talking about peoples reactions specifically in this thread.

I never said Entourage was smart or dumb. I don't really care about Entourage. It was a fun show. armorfrsleep and I already had the conversation but apparently you and the whale cunt can't read very well.

Girls is entertaining. Its not very intelligent or witty. I wouldn't call it good, (I'd call GoT, CYE, etc 'Good') deep, or turn-on-your-brain required, but that could change; we've only had 3 episodes.

Based on responses, in this thread, by specific users, I posted my above statements.

So I smoked a cigarette during my last post and didn't realize that aimorris had directed me to the thegoodlife3's comments. I'm accustomed to this site moving much slower these days.

To be clear, I still think the three people I listed, including you, are being total tools about this show and those of us who like it and even, gasp, think it's "good."

And calling me a "whale count" and "porpoise" and telling me to shut the fuck up only make you look more puffed up. People like a show you don't think is good. Calm down.

Lena Dunham is a good writer and director and it shows in Girls. Jody Lee Lipes is a fucking great DP and Girls is shot incredibly well. I would call Girls 'good.' And pretty witty. And definitely pretty intelligent. I don't think I'm cool for "getting it" or something. I think it handles it's storylines in a smart and fresh way and has interesting characters. Fuck off.

Cool story bros. Never attacked you for liking the show. I mean everyone here, regardless of their opinion, is actually watching it so that should tell you at least something.

i found tiny furniture to be very boring. and yet i really like girls. her whole shtick works better as a 30 minute tv show.

also, i think dunham is a very mediocre actress. i would probably like the show better if she stayed on the other side of the cameras.

The little jew girl has a slammin little body.

In hindsight, I don't think so much that the show as a whole is terrible. I think its just that every scene and situation pisses me off. The whole premise of these retarded girls doing and saying stupid things and then girls IRL saying "ZOMG!!1 I totally relate to her life" is kinda embarrassing.

Also, the jew girl's name on the show is Shoshanna Shapiro, and her real name Zosia Mamet...so that's four different things we can call her instead of "jew girl." Let's all give it a shot.
