The issue with the show, Girls: From being Relatable to Unlikable
I was getting annoyed by Hannah's self absorbed personality that was becoming more extroverted and selfish. In the beginning of the season she had a new boyfriend, but she still cared for Adam who got into an accident after Jessa's surprise wedding. Why couldn't she see that being in a toxic relationship with Adam did nothing for Hannah. She ends up breaking up with her boyfriend over his political views and than has sex with every one in Brooklyn. And when I mean with everyone, it's basically every episode where she starts dry humping strangers in order to fill her void of boredom and loneliness. It's like Hannah didn't see the need to focus on writing or actually do something with her spare time. Hannah became helpless and needed Adam to rescue her at the end of the season. I don't see why I have to bother rooting for her character anymore.
I was drawn to more of Marnie than the other girls. I loved that after she broke up with her boyfriend, at the end of the season she let loose at Jessa's wedding by wearing her hair down and dress like Jlo from the 2000 Grammy's. For someone who was so uptight, for once she was human. In the second season, she gets a new job and a new boyfriend, but still feel jealous when she's sees her ex more often. She goes out with the arrogant art kid only to find out that she has been used as a fuck buddy. In the end, she goes back to her ex and to be honest, I don't see that relationship lasting because Marnie will have so many expectations about her new relationship, she might push him to his limits and even cheat on her. Marnie needs to learn how to loosen up and look at life through a 20 something year old perspective rather than expecting everything to be fine. She's too young to see life with so many problems.
Last, but not least Shoshannah is on my hit list. After losing her virginity with some 30 year old, she wants to go through her natural slut phase or experience what it's like to be a new woman. But she feels trapped by the forced relationship with her 30 year old boyfriend which she feels sorry for him. It's kind of depressing and Shoshannah should have used him only for a booty call. Maybe next season, she will find appreciation in meeting a decent guy.
