My main beef with “Girls,” having only seen the trailer
…is that overeducated and privileged white twentysomethings “navigate their lives” in places other than New York City, too! I mean, COME ON PEOPLE. In Atlanta we have all the same problems except with INSANE HUMIDITY and PALMETTO BUGS and EVEN WORSE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION and NO GAY MARRAIGE and…
OK, I am totally kidding (although all those things are true). I am actually feeling fairly neutral about the show, possibly because I don’t have HBO so it hardly seems to matter anyway. But here is a smart thing and here is another smart thing I enjoyed reading about it earlier today, and Lena Dunham seems like someone I’d like to have a beer/a cupcake/a beer and a cupcake with.
Also I totally just learned that “palmetto bugs” are absolutely completely the same thing as cockroaches (which we also have). So gross.
