I just binge-watched the entire series so far. I wouldn't say it's anywhere close to the funniest show on TV but I really do like it.

In a weird way I feel like I know these people. Hannah and Marnie feel like exaggerated versions of girls I knew in college, and Shoshanna is an exaggerated and more naive version of a lot of the girls from my high school.

/don't think I've ever met a Jessa though

They mean Shoshanna, right?

After this weeks episode, I nominate Suits for funniest show on TV.

Besides, any show that quotes City on the Edge of Forever is by definition good.

That Girls show is insipid.

Don't really care for Girls (not attacking anyone who does, not being that guy) but I DO love some Archer!

I've never seen the Dunham show, but if it's even comparable to Archer, I picked a good day to be sick and go on a tv show bender.

Look down a few threads, Hulu opened the Criterion Collection up for free this weekend.

She has the saddest looking tits I've ever seen.  I enjoy and appreciate all sizes and shapes, never thought a woman that young could have so ugly a pair.

Meh.  It was chuckle-worthy up until the most recent episode.  Last week's was full-on chubby-chaser porn.
 
2013-02-16 03:11:35 PM
Girls, that is.  Archer is awesome.
 
2013-02-16 03:22:12 PM
Her show isn't that funny.  That being said it's an excellent dramedy.  The last episode alone was one of the best episodes of anything I've ever seen on TV.  It got a little Hard Candy.

Sorry. Archer looks way too much like Frisky Dingo on the surface, and that show was weapons-grade suck.

Girls is a very different show from Archer. Archer is much funnier, but Girls is good too for what it is, and sometimes pretty funny. My main problem with Girls is that all of the characters are unlikeable except for Shoshanna. With Archer, every character is a caricature, so there's never a thought for whether they're decent people.

Oh?

Hard Candy was one of those movies my GF and I said holy crap that could have been us. "Nothing's yours when you invite a teenager into your home. " Got that one right, lol

The only way I would watch "Girls" is if Pam or Cheryl from "Archer" is on there. Imagine the crazy shiat that would happen on that show if those two showed up!!!

Overrated and overexposed. I'm so tired of hearing about this woman.
 
2013-02-16 04:20:08 PM
i tried to watch and like Girls, I really did.  I read lots of reviews and the critics all loved it.  But I'm sorry, that shows sucks.  It's just awful beyond all comprehension.  And to pour salt in the wound, the only one who gets naked is the fat ugly one.  WTF is that all about?

The show is boring and stupid and overrated and it sucks.  It's like The Kings Speech, if the King were a fat woman that wouldn't stop taking off her clothes.

Hipsters aren't funny and their self absorbed humor isn't groundbreaking or all that good. A show like Archer is 1000X funnier.

Yep, I gave it a shot. I imagine the pitch was "It's Sex and the City with younger yet less attractive and more self-absorbed characters who are each thoroughly unlikable in their own bland way."

I suppose it's probably a funny show if you're an upper-middle-class white female who can't get a job because the baby boomers wrecked the economy and now you have ennui, but outside of that demographic, I don't see it. It seems insipid to me.

Archer, Parks and Rec, and It's Always Sunny all are far funnier shows. Curb is a far funnier show. If sketch comedy counts, Portlandia is a far funnier show (though, like Girls, it's more of a niche show; as a PNW resident, I probably find it funnier than most). Hell, I think The League is a much funnier show, for that matter.

I couldn't make it through an episode.  My first reaction was "wow, she's really self-absorbed" and I didn't know if that was a reaction to the character or the writing.  Probably both.  And Lena's on my eternal hatred list for taking a golden globe away from... actually pretty much any of the other women nominated.  Amy Poehler in particular if I had to pick.

Does not hold a candle to Archer, Parks and Rec, Always Sunny in Philly, Louie, Curb your Enthusiasm, Veep.. Watched a couple of eps could not see what the fuss was about.

Would you look at that, word for word with what came out of my mouth when I read his comment...

/Archer and FD look alike because they're done by the same company
//FD died thanks to Adult Swim right at an awesome period
 
2013-02-16 05:13:26 PM
I haven't seen this show.  I saw Dunham on Letterman or Ferguson or somewhere, and she seemed really likeable.  I have seen clips, stills (of the others, and her. The dreaded "chubby amd still small breasted" -DNW) and read much talk about the show on Fark.

I can tell it is not for me.
