Lena Dunham’s divisive thinkpiece magnet Girls ended its six-season HBO run on Sunday, to a renewed frenzy of media attention. Several of SportsAlcohol.com’s regular podcasters have watched the entire series as it aired, so Marisa, Sara, Nathaniel, and Jesse got together to watch the finale and discuss the show. Our conversation touches upon issues such as:
- Every major character, and why it might be reductive to call any of them “the worst”
- But seriously, why does Jesse like Marnie so much?
- The series as a whole and how it ended
- Storylines we didn’t fall in love with
- What was realistic… and what wasn’t, especially if you know anything about writing workshops
- What this TV show did that other shows haven’t really done before
- Something something problematic
Basically, this episode is a must for any Girls fans still mourning the loss of their favorite show — or, for that matter, for any hatewatchers wishing someone could tell you what the fuss was about.
