I was really looking forward to watching Girls last night. In fact, there was a point when I was watching the Globes because I was waiting for it to come on at 9. I sat down for the season premiere of a TV series that I had been waiting a year for… and felt disappointment.
Wishful thinking: Have I grown up in the past year? Why are all of the characters that I loved so much in the first season, still the same, but somehow more annoying and hardly funny? “First world problems,” flashed across my brain during several scenes as I felt a newfound hatred for Marnie rising in my consciousness (I just really have a hatred for infidelity portrayals).
That, coupled with the fact that I forgot just how uncomfortable Girls scenes can get. Thirty minutes later I wondered if I’ve become some sort of premature conservative. The only saving grace is that Elijah AKA the only one providing quote-worthy lines for my Twitter is a truly silver lining.
So, in a nutshell, I’m really hoping that the season gets better.
