Girls Season 6 Episode 7 Review: The Bounce

13 hours ago | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Elijah reconnects with his dreams, Hannah reconnects with her baby's father, and Marnie reconnects with an inkling of self-awareness on Girls Season 6 Episode 7.

"The Bounce" was enjoyably Elijah-heavy, fulfilling all of my hopes from past reviews that we'd finally see Hannah's Bff get an actual arc to close out Girls Season 6 before the show's final bow.

The primary story followed Elijah's hilarious journey through auditioning for a role in the new musical "White Men Can't Jump" (based on the 1992 movie).

Of course, there isn't a "White Men Can't Jump" musical in real life (yet, anyway), but the potential for hilarity was spot-on with Andrew Rannells having to dribble-dance with basketballs.

It was easily the zaniest the show's ever been – they typically don't do that sort of borderline-slapstick humor, but it made me laugh out loud every time.

Particularly when he hit the other guy in the face with the basketball »

Lena Dunham Looks Amazing! Girls Star Reveals Why She Loves Working Out With Celeb Trainer Tracy Anderson

16 March 2017 8:06 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For Girls star Lena Dunham, getting fit with personal trainer Tracy Anderson is more about creating a mind-body connection than trying to look different.

“I think for me the big thing was that Tracy just very clearly wasn’t trying to change my body,” she told People at the opening of Anderson’s new flagship studio on New York City’s Upper East Side. “I came to her and was like, ‘I have endometriosis, I have chronic physical pain, I just want to feel stronger I just want to have a stronger core, I want to feel like I have more power throughout my day, »

‘Girls’ Producer on Why That Shocking Twist Was Planned from the Beginning

7 March 2017 2:01 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Spoilers follow for “Girls” Season 6, Episode 4, “Painful Evacuation.”]

It’s the final season of “Girls,” and it is not going gently into that good night. Following last week’s tremendous bottle episode, “American Bitch,” the series has thrown a major landmine into the narrative with the reveal this week that Hannah (Lena Dunham) has become pregnant thanks to her one night stand in the season opener with Paul-Louis (Riz Ahmed).

How Matthew Rhys Landed That Candid Role on ‘Girls’

27 February 2017 8:09 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The screw-up at the end of the Academy Awards ceremony wasn’t the only big TV moment that had tongues wagging on Sunday night.

HBO’s “Girls” featured a candid — really candid — performance from guest star Matthew Rhys, star of FX’s “The Americans.” The episode, “American Bitch,” featured Rhys as Chuck Palmer, a writer with a well-earned reputation for seducing impressionable young literary hopefuls. Palmer and Lena Dunham’s Hannah Horvath square off after he finds a critical piece that she penned about him, citing him as a writer she once admired. The entire half-hour takes place in Palmer’s Manhattan apartment.

The “Girls” and “Americans” production teams have been friendly over the years as both shows shoot in Brooklyn. Rhys noted that “Girls” exec producer Jenni Konner recently wrote a “very, very nice” appreciation of “The Americans.” But Rhys was suggested for the role of Palmer by script supervisor Kim Delise, who »

Exclusive: How Judd Apatow Has Cultivated Success on TV

27 February 2017 7:50 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Judd Apatow is no stranger to success -- or the work it takes to get to where he’s at today.

After getting his start on TV as a co-creator and co-producer of The Ben Stiller Show and, later, honing his craft as a writer on The Larry Sanders Show, he wrote and produced Freaks and Geeks as well as creating Undeclared. Though they only lasted one season each, both shows would go on to become cult classics while Apatow largely shifted his focus to film. It was there he found box office success with Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, followed by an era of bromantic comedies with The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Superbad.

“I didn’t really plan to do TV,” Apatow tells Et on a snowy day in January -- the first of two conversations that coincidentally happened on snow-filled days during a surprisingly mild winter in New York City. While excited »

‘Girls’ Director Richard Shepard on Sunday Night’s Searing Episode ‘American Bitch’

24 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched episode 3 of season 6 of “Girls,” titled “American Bitch.” The episode — along with new eps of “Big Little Lies” and “Crashing” — will be released earlier than usual on Friday on HBO Now, HBO Go, and On Demand.

Sunday night’s episode of “Girls” is one of the finest half-hours the show has produced — essentially a one-act short film in which Hannah (Lena Dunham) visits the apartment of Chuck Palmer (Matthew Rhys), an acclaimed author accused of sexual assault. The resulting encounter between the two of them is one of manipulation and shifting power dynamics, one that uses Dunham’s gift for reproducing awkwardness to sharpen the conclusion of the episode into a jagged, uncomfortable point. It seems almost reductive to observe that the episode addresses rape culture, consent, and the power dynamics between entitled creative men and vulnerable creative women — it is about all of this, but »

Lena Dunham on Ending 'Girls,' Taylor Swift and Being Blamed for Hillary's Loss

15 February 2017 7:46 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"I've always annoyed people," says Lena Dunham. "I was the girl in third grade where everybody was like, 'This girl is so annoying – like, leave.'" But Dunham has done a whole lot more than freak out critics on the left and right for the past five years: In addition to her bestselling memoir and her smart feminist newsletter, Lenny Letter, HBO's Girls, which begins its sixth and final season in February, has been consistently hilarious and innovative, even as a fair number of people could never stop confusing Dunham's sometimes clueless character, »

‘Girls’ Cast Celebrates Final Season and Legacy of Empowering Women

3 February 2017 8:18 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The cast and producers of “Girls” celebrated the legacy of the HBO series Thursday night at the New York premiere of the sixth and final season.

Not surprisingly, the party at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall also turned into a conversation of the impact “Girls” has had on women.

“I think this show introduced the television audience to a new kind of heroine who doesn’t look like the way that people aspired to look,” said Allison Williams, who stars as Marnie Michaels. “It’s been such a privilege to be a part of something that people had opinions about. Even if they were bad, they were from people consuming media that was made by women. This is such a girl party tonight.”

Girls” garnered attention from the start thanks to auteur Lena Dunham’s feminist, outspoken and unapologetic approach to showing the good, the bad and the ugly of being a modern twenty-something woman. It »

Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner Vow to Keep Fighting for Women ‘Even If Those Women Don’t Share Our Values’

2 February 2017 7:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Lena Dunham plans to keep advocating for all women, whether they like it or not.

“We are still fighting for you as a group,” Dunham, 30, told People at the Girls premiere on Thursday, in response to her TimesTalk quote about women she politically disagrees with.

“I think it’s really important that even though we live in a culture where obviously so many of us are so disappointed that 53% of white women voted for Donald Trump, I think you have to keep voting for the rights of people, no whether you agree or disagree with them,” the actress continued.
