So much happened to our fave twenty-something gal pals this year on HBO’s zeitgeist-y hit Girls that the season flew by before we had time to process all the dramedy.
Hannah (Lena Dunham, fearless as ever) tried to reignite her writing career and deliver her eBook to her oddball publisher (the peerless John Cameron Mitchell), while remaining deeply committed to her eccentric squeeze Adam (Adam Driver, usually shirtless, always sublime), who’s now a burgeoning Broadway star, and coping with his completely deranged sister (Gaby Hoffmann, perfectly cast).
Peter Pan Allison Williams) is still working out her endless issues (that “What I Am” video caused her much deserved shame), while Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) attempted to balance partying with her studies and Jessa (Jemima Kirke), after getting booted from rehab after seducing a vulnerable lesbian, befriended a flamboyant father figure. So, you see, the girls are still complex, still frustrating and still completely relatable.
Yet what gives the series its poignancy for LGBT viewers is undoubtedly the complicated dynamic between Hannah and her ex-boyfriend and current gay bestie Elijah (the scrumptious Andrew Rannells). Our fingers are crossed there’ll be more of this next season.
If you need a refresher before the January 11 premiere of season four, Girls: The Complete Third Season will be available on Blu-ray ($39.98) and DVD ($29.98) on January 6. To tide you over until then, here’s a fun deleted scene of Hannah and Elijah shopping in a slutty shop.
Good grief, Lena Dunham is the worst. Why any gay (or straight) man would want to spend time with her is a mystery to me. She is a talentless man-hating feminazi c#nt, and treats gay MEN like novelty accessories.
@Arkansas Razorback: OMG I thought I was the only one that felt that way about here. I think the self centered entitled character she plays on the show isn’t that different then how she is in real life.
“feminazi”?? What does that even mean?
I adore that scene! 🙂
I knew Andrew was multi-talented cute but wow, the dude is yummy hot!
