Storyline

The girls attend the launch of Tally Schifrin's first book, she who Hannah considers her college nemesis and basically a poor writer who got lucky by writing a book more out of a sensational personal circumstance. The launch results in Hannah reconnecting with Powell Goldman, her favorite college professor, who asks Hannah to do a reading at one of his weekly get togethers. This request makes Hannah confront one of her fears which is sharing herself through her writing. If she does decide to do it, she feels she has to choose the right piece to show the appropriate side of herself. She also gets much advice from her friends on what she should or should not do. Jessa receives a surprise visit from Katherine following the revelation of Jeff's infatuation with her, and Jessa's role in leading Jeff on. The real reason for Katherine's visit surprises Jessa, but does make her think about her current lot in life. And recent events, including Hannah getting a temporary job at the same coffee ...

Trivia

Lena Dunham originally planned to film the episode's brutal centerpiece argument between Hannah and Marnie by dividing the scenes into two halves of shooting: one set where the two characters were trying to resolve the fight and being less angry towards each other, and another where they had lost their tempers and were yelling and screaming at each other. However, Dunham then changed her mind and shot the scene chronologically because it better captured how dysfunctional and furious Hannah and Marnie's interactions had become. See more »

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 the 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 storyline 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.

Season 01

Each character has evolved in this season satisfying the viewers but has also kept a lot under their sleeve to keep them hungry for more. The season mainly focuses on the love track of protagonist and various episodes of the side characters where things are merely building up for future which seems quite exciting and believe it or not chaotic too.

Leave Me Alone

It's first act is hilarious and has some quiet intriguing conversation to follow up but the scrutiny begins in its last act that is basically two friends fighting over nothing; something that is so practical and has never been projected yet, and they somehow have managed to pull it off.
