Because we can’t just HAVE A SEASON of Girls, now everyone is talking about this kinda ugly thing that went down at the TCA Panel for the show yesterday. You can read about it from the writer in question, Tim Malloy, here.
1) It’s a stupid fucking question, and one Dunham’s been answering since, no exaggeration, before the show even aired.
2) Two different quotes from Malloy: “I just don’t get the artistic reason for it, and want to understand it, because I’m a TV critic.” “I’m trying to understand it as a TV critic. That’s my job.” Hey, sorry to break it to you buddy, but if you have to have every artistic choice on a show explained to you so you can “understand it,” you’re not a very good TV critic.
