    Guest Post: "No One Would Ever Say That to Larry David": Female Showrunners and the Hypocritical Critical Edge

    To be clear, there’s nothing wrong with critique. Mindy Kaling and Lena Dunham have said as much. But let’s call a spade a spade. As fair as some or parts of the criticisms Kaling and Dunham face are, it highlights the double standard that exists.

    Recap: 'Girls' Finale Season 3, Episode 12 Takes 'Two Plane Rides' As Boundaries Are Crossed

    If there has been an overarching theme to the third season of "Girls," it has been about boundaries. Whether it's trying to find success within them (Shoshanna's carefully plotted life plan), falling outside of them to disastrous effect (Jessa's addiction, Marnie's streak of bad decisions) or vacill...

    Judd Apatow Says HBO Worried That 'Girls' Sex Scenes Could Cost Their License; 6 Seasons Planned

    As the third season gets ready to close out for "Girls," Lena Dunham's show has already made the kind of waves you might expect from a program that has been on the air twice as long. Right out of the gate, Dunham presented the world with a series that, among many other things, was unapologetic about...

    Recap: Hannah Tries 'Role-Play' In Season 3, Episode 10

    "I don't want you to spend your whole life socializing him like he's a stray dog, making the world a friendlier place for him," Hannah's (Lena Dunham) mother warned her in last week's "Flo." At the time it seemed like a cruel remark, but in "Role-Play," the observation has turned out to be prescient...

    Recap: 'Girls' Goes With The 'Flo' In Season 3, Episode 9

    We've already seen how Hannah handles death with the mid-season episodes "Dead Inside" and "Only Child"—with what can best be described as cool detachment with a spoonful of selfishness tossed into the mix. It's a reaction that could perhaps be chalked up to her age, where death is distant reality, ...

    Recap: 'Girls' Season 3, Episode 8 Handles The 'Incidentals'

    After last week's excursion to North Fork in "Beach House," a welcome one-off that focused on the "Girls" and not on pushing the plot around, the show returns with the slightly more conventional "Incidentals."
