Here’s something that’s annoyed me… at some point in the 48 hours since it premiered on Sunday night, the reaction to Lena Dunham’s new show Girls has turned exceptionally nasty. Not “Hey, I didn’t like this show” nasty, but more like “I’m going to use Facebook and Tumblr and Twitter to tear…
FACT: I really enjoyed watching girls. ALSO, FACT: I am really confused at how much people seem to despise it. I’m really irritated with the fake poster going around that says “NEPOTISM” on it. As a reminder, the definition of nepotism is: favoritism (as in appointment to a job) based on kinship. Yeah, all of those ladies have parents with varying levels of fame but that doesn’t mean they’re not talented. And as the entry in its entirety above by Alex of ferniecommaalex notes - there are a lot of a famous dudes with famous kin and nobody points the nepotism finger at them (I personally was thinking of Jason Schwartzman, of my beloved & cancelled Bored to Death).
Anyways, I won’t be watching Girls this Sunday at 10:30…because I’ll be in bed. I’ll watch it in the morning.
