It was better than Tiny Furniture, Lena's movie who also starred and written, but not as good as the hype would suggest. Yeah, and that anal scene was ten times worse on TF..I hope she won't repeat that again! We've seen it too much already!
But I'll definitely keep watching, hoping it will slightly improve..
It was horrifying to watch a 24 year old woman throw a tantrum about her parents cutting her off. I understand feeling panicked about money. But to expect your parents to fund your lifestyle after 2 years of graduation? That's just pathetic. The show pretty much played to all the stereotypes that baby boomers have placed on the up coming generation. I'm going to watch next week, since the events of premiere gives the main character the opportunity to pull herself up by her boot straps. But she needs to lose that sense of entitlement and have a major attitude readjustment.
I guite liked the pilot. It's basically a chick version of "How To Make It In America", but maybe that's why it's good. I think Lena is wildly talented, so i'm trusting her to give this show an unique and interesting spin. Can't wait for the next episodes.
I've read a few reviews on this over the past couple of days and I'm really intrigued. A few people have said it gets better after episode one (as do most if not all television series) so those who didn't like the pilot might still enjoy the series as it progresses.
Just finished watching the 2nd episode. I practically hate all of them. They're all rather pathetic. Hannah seems to do a lot of waiting and doesn't know how to make things happen. Shoshanna is a stereoypical nerd. Jessa annoys me with her "indifferent" hipster coolness.
Marnie is very likeable though. She's ambitious, direct and strikes me as the only one who knows what she's doing or how to do things. And she's prettiest.
Also, the setting comes off as kinda fake. Is this an accurate portrayal of student life/early working life in New York? It doesn't seem to be.
