Girls Review: Unintended Audience
To be honest, this episode of Girls started out slow - but definitely went out with a crazy finish. I was sort of yawning my way through "Hannah's Diary," with the exception of a few giggles, until Hannah and her eyebrows dropped that speech on Adam and Ray and Charlie's band dropped their bomb.
Jessa, who I normally find to be an entertaining character, has been lulled into a dull storyline. Does anyone else think something might happen with her and the dad of the kids for whom she nannies?
Shoshanna finally got herself a storyline, but unfortunately it's super hard for me as a reviewer to be professional about this one. I loved it, it was great, realistic, well done and well written, but here's the hitch: I've know her "camp friend" Matt since I was six years old. The actor, Skylar Astin, is best known in the theater world and got his big break when he first starred in Spring Awakening with Glee gal Lea Michele.
So I kind of got the giggles when i watched him pull down Shoshanna's underwear and talked about how he loves to "eat p*ssy." This is my very dear friend's baby bro. Aside from that, I thought he played the part flawlessly, especially off of Shoshanna, who is the queen of insecurities and so desperately wants to shed her virginity. Her banter trying to downplay her innocence was amusing. I'm like the least virginy virgin.

It was also slightly impossible to take Hannah seriously when she had those eyebrows painted on. I was laughing out loud and not with her, but at her. Sorry but those were hilarious. Also this new touchy boss is creepy. Reiki is a massage technique that involves no touching. Soooo there's that.
For a smart girl, Hannah is not the brightest. She also doesn't know how to take a picture of herself on her iPhone. Half the point of having an iPhone is for all of the cool camera functions. Also, she is dumb enough to sext...to a guy who sends a picture of a his junk wrapped in a squirrel skin. Enough said.
The climax of the episode was obviously the ending. First was Hannah's speech to loser Adam. I'm sorry but any girl who gives the whole "I don't want a boyfriend but I do want monogamy speech" is just lying. It's the same thing, it really is. Let's stop with the BS. While I respect her for finally being honest and saying she isn't comfortable with him sleeping with other girls, Adam probably won't change.
Lastly, Ray and Charlie with the journal was just insane. I didn't really see that coming. I thought maybe Hannah wrote some dirty confession or something embarrassing, but the fact that it was the truth about Marnie's relationship was just wow. Then the whole reaction with the drink to the face, and Jessa laughing kind of displayed all of the girls personalities in a quick five-second sequence. Marnie uptight, Hannah naive, Jessa amused, Shoshanna insecure.
