It's Not Negativity, It's Critical Thinking



Did anyone else watch the Girls, Season 2 Finale?  I was slightly disappointed in the second season of Girls as compared to the first, but that's probably just because the first season was so incredible, new and fresh. 

Spolier Alert:  Don't keep reading if you haven't watched the episode yet!

I was a little shocked at the direction of the show this last episode.  I know Lena Dunham knows what she is doing and likely has a very poetic reason for this, but pretty much each "broken" character was left being saved by a man.  Not exactly female empowerment. 

Marnie was saved by Charlie (although I loved their conversation outside of brunch).  Even though Shosh broke up with Ray, she made it all better with the blonde dude at the bar.  And our most broken OCD'er Hannah was finally saved by Adam, after seeking help from her dad and male neighbor.  Interesting. 

My favorite part of the whole episode was the conversation between Ray and Shoshanna in her apartment. 

Shoshanna says:   "I can't be surrounded by your negativity while I'm trying to grow into a fully formed woman. You hate everything!"

To which Ray responds:  "Maybe it's not negativity, but critical thinking!"

Being the negative one in my relationship (and having been this way my whole life) I got a major kick out of this...and so did Jason.



Here's to an even better third season and Lena Dunham's cute pixie cut.  Also did anyone else catch the Fun song in the episode? (Lena Dunham's bf in real life is the guitarist of Fun)
