Who Run the World?

I think you know where I’m going with this.

Girls! In spite of The Golden Globes (fine, I am wholly okay to completely unpack the euphoric effect of letting Tiny Fey and Amy Poehler serve as the voice of the film industry for one enchanted evening) and yet in honor of the award ceremony fostered accolades, let’s discuss season premiere highlights, shall we? (And here I thought I was really learning to defeat my run-on sentences.)

I’ll get the ball rolling: “You make my whole body feel like a clit.”

Fine, one more, “I may be deflowered, but I am not devalued.”

Your turn! Also, those parenthesis don’t lie. Any comments, ideas, projections on the funniest faces of female humanity welcome. Illustration drawn by Charlotte Fassler (Feel free to assess the, erm, ambiance, too).

    I think in another life, somehow, someway you were my crack spirit guide and for some odd reason in this life you’re not. ( did I get the run on sentence piece right?)

    The clit quote goes on my list of “best things people on tv have said ever”. The premier was consistent with the last season in style and whatnot. Tumblr has been exploding with mixed sentiments on Donald Glover being Hannah’s new squeeze, I personally think he’s awesome and extremely talented and can’t wait to see more. Some people want to be offended that he’s (apparently) Lena Dunham’s move to increase the diversity of the show, but those are likely the same people who bashed the show for having no PoC at all in season one. I’ve chalked it up to that good old “some folks won’t ever be satisfied” and left it at that.

    All racial tension and clitoral references aside though, the actual champ of the episode, in my opinion, was Shoshana. Air DJ-ing and sad karaoke of Sean Kingston’s most well liked song? And really, what IS wrong with emojis? I’m pretty sure they’re the best things to use in lieu of actual words, otherwise exclamation points and ellipses get abused and those are nowhere near as amusing.

    I’m so glad Girls is back! Shoshana was awesome in this episode. See: the quote above and this little gem “I thank the higher powers for all of the gifts that I have already received: a keen mathematical mind and fairly fast growing hair.”

    Also: Marni’s commentary on why she would hate being gay.

    And Adam’s response to Hannah’s “how are you feeling” — “Like I got hit by a fucking truck, which I did!”
    So much goodness.

    There is something condescending about Lena Dunham to me (granted never met her, just going off interviews). To me, she feels like the type of person that attacks you for not agreeing with her every life view. Just can’t get behind it….

      Agreed. [Never met her either but] She seems like the type of girl who just loves talking about herself and needs people to constantly acknowledge her problems. It’s not very welcoming.

    TWO WORDS: DONALD GLOVER.

    His voice is is like beautiful poetry and I want him to be on Girls forever and ever. When he said the word “li-br-ary” I almost died.

    “Maybe I want to be Wendy Murdoch, maybe that’s my new thing” – Elijah is quickly becoming a favourite! And Shoshanna was the shining light of this season premiere for sure!

    I love how Adam’s torso looks just as perplexed as his face…probably because he has no attainable fat.
