Posted on April 18, 2012 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Yesterday, I demonstrated how unhip I am in my review of Girls.

At the moment, though, I can only marvel at the talent of Lena Durham, wonder how she managed to surround herself with so many non-descript other actresses who make no impression beyond their accent (in the British character's case)

And yet, as this pastiche of HBO's advertising poster for Girls shows, they are all well-known, but only in certain circles…

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
