Have you seen it yet? Is it good? Did you like Tiny Furniture?
I didn’t see Tiny Furniture yet, but I want to and it’s at the top of my queue. I’ve just been watching soooo many television series (as opposed to movies) lately. I think I like the option of watching shit in smaller bits, I guess. I will probably watch it within the next few days.
As for Girls, I saw the pilot last night, it was pretty good! Not, like, incredible or anything but funny and cringe-worthy and yes, yes, it’s true—it does speak to a certain kind of young person today.
Does it have its limits? Yes. So far—we’ll see how it goes. 20 minutes of a pilot episode is hardly enough to warrant an outright dismissal, especially if the pilot is clever, subversive, and makes me feel things.
Is it worth watching? Sure! Yeah! It looks like it’s going to be funny and address issues that affect Young People(TM) today! Goodness knows I cringed a few times because I could ~*~ReLaTe~*~.
And yeah—it was created and is being run by a 25 year old woman and that’s pretty incredible. Let’s support it at least as much as that fact in itself deserves.
But seriously. It’s like the entire fucking Web is dissecting this show—and in at least half of those places, before it even aired!—like it’s fucking Ulysses or something. Perspective, people. Perspective. I mean, come on. This shit came on after the completely fucking insane Eastbound & Down and the tit-fest that is Game of Thrones.
Thanks! I’m looking forward to watching it someday (I liked Tiny Furniture a lot and I think you will too), but it’s true what you say about the people on the Internet ruining things with their enthusiasm. Like, it’s cool that you’re so into it, but give someone else the chance to make up her mind or perhaps choose indifference without feeling all weird about it, ok?
Speaking of weird, I’ve felt the same way about movies and tv shows for a while now. I’ll watch ten episodes in a row of some television show, but when it comes to watching an hour and a half or two of a movie, I start to throw a fit for some reason. Like, it’s just too much pressure and who has the time for that!? (I have the time for that, but it’s like I can’t be bothered these days)
