  • BigBrotherFan

    Oh look..HBO must be proud all 5 people who watch girls GLAD TWO ARE HERE to defend this trash @taylor@Andrew
    You do know you are apart of a *VERY* small minority that actually tune in. lol
    I don`t care whats trending on TWITTER or whatever CRITICAL LOVE HBO PAID CRITICS FACT IS OR WHATEVER UNCLASSY THING THAT PIG DOES NEXT- NUMBERS DONT LIE!

  • chris

    Some people are idiots. TWD is clearing building tension. Not every episode can be all out action. If you can’t handle that you shouldn’t be watching any TV drama – fullstop.

  • Dom

    Girls is TRASH. And although I don’t like calling women names- Lena Dunham IS a pig. Bring back How to Make it in America! It made the top 100!

  • eridapo

    Vikings was the most watched cable series in the 10 PM hour and TV’s No. 1 show among men 25-54.

  • alex

    wow, all these insults… i don’t watch girls and don’t think that girl deserves all that awards. it’s way harsh to call her that.

  • Andrew

    Nah, a lot of people watch Girls. Not only has it sweeped Critics Choice Awards and the Globes, it has a huge following by the public. People love to hate on the show because of how Lena Dunham looks, but that doesn’t negate the huge following it has. Can’t wait for the EXTENDED 13 EPISODE SEASON THREE! :D :D :D :D

  • taylor

    Critics are the ones that don’t lie ;) And critics love Girls. No way to argue that.

  • Marc

    @mary: You are a pig.

    @big brother fan: As i said before, Girls is for intelligent people. Not for people who only have enough brain to understand Big Brother. So its actually not your fault that you dont understand the show. Its just too high for you.

  • eldaf3993

    @Marc i completely agree. it’s the same 2 people who come here every week bashing girls. it’s kind of sad. the show is brilliant and hbo loves it. it’s going to be around for a LONG time. get used to it and suck it up.

  • BigBrotherFan

    Andrew

    What world do you live in, Dude? WHAT FOLLOWING? The show cannot even crack the top 100 and it was promoted like hell and its on HBO. Face it….NOBODY IS WATCHING

    I dont hate LENA DUNHAM because she is AVERAGE NOT FAT BUT AVERAGE or because she has the face of a dog..it has NOTHING to do with her looks and everything to do with her personality. She hangs around other slobs that go around using the N-WORD on twitter, she says insane stupid things, she IS way to extreme and her political ad made me sick. There are many ladies deemed unattractive that I like JOY BEHAR, STAR JONES, JOAN RIVERS..ETC ETC..DUNHAM is not funny she is just OFFENSIVE!

    PLUS HER INDIE FILM WAS UTTER CRAP!!!!!

  • eldaf3993

    I think Lena is beautiful.

  • BigBrotherFan

    Marc

    1. NASHVILLE
    2. THE FOLLOWING
    3. SHAMELESS
    4. MAD MEN

    Dude, Big Brother wouldnt even make my top 5. It is mindless summer fun that I like to watch and LAST TIME!!!!

    I started posting here when the show was on…but please DO KEEP BRINGING THAT UP…I guess it never gets old.

  • Andrew

    @BigBrotherFan ok, I understand you now. You’re easily offended and a Star Jones fan. No need to continue – I realize why you don’t like Girls. Your taste is obviously very poor.

  • samurai99

    @Bigbrotherfan.

    Right. I’m the troll.

  • BigBrotherFan

    Andrew

    HAHA! Dude, I am not a STAR JONES fan, at all. I was just pointing out how unattractive she is and overweight and I do not MIND her does not mean I LIKE her.

    samurai99
    You are obsessed.

  • BigBrotherFan

    Like for me means I CAN STAND.

    But I am not a fan

    I do not even know what that lady is doing now.

  • CC

    Girls is just soft core pornography packaged as a “show”. Nothing more. Saw one episode and fell asleep. Put a shirt on….

  • BigBrotherFan

    CC

    Amen!

  • samurai99

    Uh, you called me out, not the other way around.

    Girls gets 3.8 million total viewers an episode live +7 (read the number HBO actually cares about). I don’t even feel like getting into the constant stream insults about Dunham’s looks.

  • Ike

    I don’t watch Girls, but anybody who calls Dunham a “pig” is a pretty low human being. I agree with the comment hoping that @Mary never has daughters. She might teach them eating disorders.

    If you don’t like Lena Dunham’s work, then try being intelligent and using some non-body-judging language to criticize her. Otherwise you are being mindless and thuggish, and promoting eating disorders among women. Call her untalented or overrated or something like that instead. Resorting to words about her body is creepy and disgusting. Criticize the work.
