Storyline

Hannah agrees to accompany Jessa upstate to visit Salvatore, Jessa's estranged father, by who she felt physically and emotionally abandoned, especially when she needed someone on her side when it was just her and her mother. This request by Salvatore to visit was just the latest in a long series, all others which Jessa declined. Upon their arrival, Hannah learns from Salvatore's new hippie wife, Petula, what she sees as Hannah's metaphysical purpose for accompanying Jessa on this trip, especially as she knows that Jessa does not like her. The trip does not end up quite as Jessa had thought it would, she and Hannah spending much of their time with Jessa's nineteen year old step-brother, Frank, and Frank's friend, Tyler. But a situation between Jessa and Salvatore and Hannah getting some alone time gives Hannah a better perspective of her own family situation. Written by Huggo

Girls

Girls; being critically acclaimed and buzzed at Golden Globes for its originality, is a passion project of the creator and the lead actor, Lena Dunham whose creativity and genuine soul is what keeps this character driven series flow frictionless. The series is shot beautifully and the camera work is utterly pleasing which helps seek attention of the viewers. The writing is strong, witty and brutally honest sometimes, which can be inedible for viewers especially for it resonates eerily with reality that we all reside in. The characters or even the actors aren't given priority especially not at the compromise of the story-line which is what makes it different from one's usual sitcom. Addition to that, the series can afford and does offer a wider range where each notes connects and hits to the audience; from humor to intense drama. It is rich on technical aspects like sound department, costume design and editing. It is no short on execution as it communicates with the viewers and offers a palpable environment, that is cozy, raw, bold and uneven, in short an apt depiction of the current generation's social life.

Season 02

This season is more character driven than the previous one, which is frankly saying a lot, for the major part of the time is spent upon the justifying twists and turns and actions occurring, that sometime can be a downer as it chews off properly to blend in and sometimes elevates it into much more mature concept that neither is the audience ready for it and nor is the maker.

Video Games

Similar concept to One Man's Trash, from structure to its trajectory, is still a downer and the primary reason is that it ends up in a definite obvious point, and the process isn't impressive at all even though is a forward pass.
