Does Shoshanna on Girls have an eating disorder?

Screen Shot 2014-01-21 at 2.40.21 PM

During the end of season two of HBO’s Girls, main character Hannah had a severe OCD episode, which spanned around three installments. In my personal opinion, it wasn’t used like an adorkable quirk that most sitcoms would portray it. It seemed real. It made my skin crawl. It helped create one of the most cringe-inducing episodes of 2013 — and my second-favorite episode of any show of last year — in “On All Fours.” The Q-tip incident is still a visceral image lodged in my memory.

Happy new year, everyone! It’s 2014, and I hope everyone had a really happy holidays!

This is one of those rare moments when I write a review several hours after I watched the episode — about eight hours or so. I mean, I don’t want to downplay my memory skills that much, but you know, that’s a lot of time for a twentysomething.

2013 was a year of satirizing those who yearned for fame and fortune

Or, On Miley Cyrus and her summer anthem "We Can't Stop"

It’s the end of 2013. And naturally, this is the time when we all reflect on the past 12 months of our lives — where did it go wrong? where did it go right? what were the big events of the year?

Ah, the day after Christmas. That holiday spirit is reaching a plateau in the most pleasant way possible. You’re a day removed from the high of playing with your gifts. So my question is, did you get anything TV related under the tree?

About ten years ago, what I would have gotten for Christmas was another season of Friends on DVD, and a friend or two would gift some other show — Reba or Family Guy.

“Well, I think we’re all done waiting… ’cause here I come.”
—Bo

One can only hope so, Bo. When this episode first began, I was kind of dreading it. If there’s one thing you should know about me as a television viewer is that I kind of hate flashback episodes. They’re distracting, often boring, and most times don’t really give us much information about what is going on presently.

Screen Shot 2013-12-18 at 6.22.31 PM

If you’ve never watched Chuck and you have Netflix: congratulations, you have the ability to watch one of television’s fine, little-known series — and my absolute favorite show of all time.
