I don't like these people. I guess i like the show because the subject matter is relevant. But they all remind me of someone I know or myself.
It isn't the kind of story where it all ends happy. That was clear in the beginning. It is the kind of story that challenges the way you view yourself. I don't think any of the sex scenes are gratuitous. None of the nudity is, either.
It isn't about what turns the audience on. It also isn't about shock and awe. Its about all of the reasons people have sex. Every kind of sex in there is real. The characters are finding themselves in an existential paradigm. Its hard, and its hard to watch. There is a lot of conversation about growing up. That is no mistake, and I applaud the writing for weaving that in with Ray and Shosh, the nickname Adam gives Hannah, the way Charlie exited his childhood by putting limits on his behavior.
Ray is angry about it because Ray refuses to grow up. Adam throws tantrums and hurts people to find out if they love him. No idea where to start with her, she is the biggest child. Even the title. This movie isn't about women, it is about girls. The characters are all children. The question is, what is grown up?
I think that the episode with the doctor was critical, however improbable, because he wanted to be a child again and he couldn't. Hannah had an emotional fit over something immaterial because she is a child and he couldn't pretend not to know it. It broke the spell and they both left never never land. So what is growing up? It seems to be acknowledging that material comfort and nice things matter, and putting the health of your relationships and your professional life ahead of your personal feelings is an immutable rule of behavior.
What is growing up? How do you do it? I grew up because I have children. I am not sure if one can do it another way. I know of lots of people who have children and never grew up. Maybe these characters will eventually grow up in future seasons. I think that now our society is in the fourth or fifth generation of access to extremely effective birth control, this is going to be a central question. What is grown up? When does it happen?
What does it mean? This 21st century story of Peter and Wendy deserves a standing ovation. As a final note, the atypical female body that is presented is an amazing achievement for women's rights, and we need more of it. Look around. Over half the women I know are shaped like Lena, and they have active sex lives with men who love the way they look, and its time that was represented to a younger audience.
I love the show for its social commentary, and I love Lena Dunham for making a natural female body an object of desire on tv. People want to say it is distorted, but if you have had sex with even a dozen people in your life you will know its just raw with common diversity. I will show this to my daughters. This isn't entertainment so much as it is communication.
I never thought I'd like this show as much as I do. I'm a senior and this gives me an insight into what these kids are dealing with nowadays. Lots of laughs, I recognize my grandkids, and boy, am I glad I raised my kids at a different time. Season 2 is taking on a much deeper perspective, addiction, mental health, ones upbring, all are brought into the limelight.
Even their brattiness and false sense of entitlement. And with all the ups and downs it's never become trite or boring. It's a refreshing, delightful show. Somehow it's interesting. I am not quite sure how- but I'm on the marathon viewing of it now. Best described as a low budget sex in the city, it has the same elements of love and relationship troubles and personal struggles. Yet the hipsteresque characters can be highly annoying. The youth of today bland from any colorful personality and expression as if they lived their entire childhood on ADHD meds.
They lack the charm and addictive individuality that other shows and other eras were known for. Yet somehow I enjoy it. In real life, I probably would want to punch most of the male characters in the face sorry but they have that aura but it's enjoyable for its simplicity and openess. Since most daughters rebel against their parents then turn out just like them I say Hanna is Carrie's daughter She would have a daughter who cannot dress but takes after her writer mother in sex capades, snarky comments and low self esteem.
Not to mention her narcissitic neediness that Carrie was always fighting against. Marnie is Miranda's daughter She would take after her mother's vain, drama and dork side.
