HBO's "Girls" Season Two Teaser: Adam Likes to Smell Women's Shoes

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | September 17, 2012 | Comments ()


There's not too much to see in the season two teaser, except images of all the characters smiling adorably. Mostly, it serves a nice reminder to all of you who neglected to watch the series in the late spring to give it a shot before it returns in January. It's on HBO to Go.Don't listen to the haters, and don't let those early reviews dissuade you. It got its legs, it became a highly entertaining show, and some of the characters -- Marnie and Adam Sackler, in particular -- completely won us over in the end.

It's a good show, goddamnit. Also, Donald Glover will be on this season.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Jezzer

    Wow, a shoe fetish to go with the most unlikeable, self-involved characters ever? COUNT ME IN.

  • bibliophile

    I get where the criticisms come from, but frankly, I think the show is hilarious. And 24 years old? Yeah. Everyone is still a baby at that age.

  • All the hearts.

  • Oh Goody Goody

    You are tragically wrong about Girls, wherein unlikeable characters wander about in a checklist highlight hipster version of Brooklyn. The protagonist's love interest is the least likeable character on television in 2012 (yes, worse than King Joffrey on GoT) and I know I'll never have the pleasure of seeing him eaten by a crocodile. Avoid.

  • Maguita NYC

    In all honesty, I don't get the extreme love for the protagonist of the show, Hanna.

    Yes, the show bluntly highlights her self-centered-ness, often to great unease and embarrassment, and follows her group of friends (or rather frenemies) who are getting on with their lives rather comically. My problem with this, is that Hanna is fucking twenty-four years old! That's 24!!!

    Is one allowed such extreme self-centered, selfish and self-absorbed behavior past a certain age? She comes across as a tiresome twit.

    The only honest one I can understand, but not relate to, is the Brigitte-Bardot looking Jemina Kirke. The one wanting to exert her "femme fatale" hold on men, no matter if she wants them or not, the one you look at and think how unfair that some bitches, exactly as in reality, get away with so much shit. That I loved. And yes, Chris O'Dowd.

  • Speaking for myself, I see her as the Larry David of her generation.

  • Maguita NYC

    But Larry David is consistently smacked in the face for his self-unawareness. We clearly see him as a man getting-on with age, who STILL does not understand when to shut-the-fuck-up. And he always pays the price for it in much uncomfortable public humiliation.

    Up to now, and I have watched the full season, Hanna has yet to be as equally smacked in the face. The whole show rather celebrates her self-absorbed-ness, and even excuses it.

    It's like excusing her behavior because she is young and foolish. Except she is not that young, and that is not foolishness but plain imbecility. I would have preferred her as a secondary character. The others are much more interesting to dissect.

  • She got slapped in the face when she realized what happened because what's his face read her diary and it hurt Marnie. And by Adam in the finale. She's certainly been humiliated as well--the HPV, her college friend at the book party, etc.

    Edited to add: Also, I believe Larry's smackdowns have exponentially increased over the seasons. I'm sure Hannah will continue to get her due.

  • Maguita NYC

    Ahh, that is where our opinion greatly differs: Getting slapped in the face. The unrealistic and disappointing reaction to Hanna's air-headed ignoble-ness.

    How gently she gets... pinched on the cheek, not slapped; How Adam gives her a surprising declaration of love and moral boosting, how sweetly her friend decides to move out after learning very publicly of Hanna's true perception and harsh unforgiving criticism of her behavior, and how Hanna, like a 5 year-old who ran away from home, simply walked to the beach and, breathe deeply please, stuffed her face with cake.

    Off with her head, I say!
