Girls S01E05: Hard Being Easy

May 19, 2012 Dave Coates 0

Five weeks into the opening season of Lena Dunham’s ‘a voice of a generation’ show Girls, the hoohah seems to have dissipated and the show can get on with the funny business. The criticisms made of the show could easily be applied (and with more accuracy) to almost any current sitcom, but it seems to have been a victim of its own promotion and the slight hysteria surrounding it in the industry press. Anyway, this episode picks up in the immediate aftermath of Charlie and Ray’s discovery of Hannah’s journal (or notebook) documenting her thoughts on Marnie and Charlie’s relationship.
