Two Quick Thoughts On Girls

by Andrew Osborne

For me, an official booster of Tiny Furniture (and a fan of Girls so far), I think (A) the media orgasm over Dunham is bound to create a backlash any second now, so please consider me part of the backlash backlash…

…but (B) what’s really weird is the media acting like it’s not just that Dunham has a sharp and distinctive voice, but is somehow doing something entirely brand new rather than (by her own admission) following in the footsteps of Whit Stillman, Noah Baumbach, Nicole Holofcener etc. (Or is it just that critics have never seen a person with a normal body getting naked and simulating sex on TV?)

P.S. — Nice to see you again, Chris Eigeman!
