It’s kind of sad, really. There is a lot of television out there that I find problematic. There are a lot of show runners out there who I find problematic. Yet, when it comes to shows like The Vampire Diaries, The Big Bang Theory, or Teen Wolf, there’s the redeeming factor of an at least slightly engaging entertainment value.
You read that right: I’m more engaged watching The Big Bang Theory than I am watching Girls.
The point is, while I’ll still critique them, I’m perfectly capable of enjoying things written by people I find distasteful so long as they’re somewhat entertaining. Girls is not that, and that makes Lena Dunham’s various shenanigans even more frustrating. She gets away with a lot for producing some extremely average work.
But, hey. That’s being white in Hollywood, isn’t it?
I am super bored with Girls. Here’s why.
