Girls Season 2 Premiere Review “It’s About Time”

A season premiere, in a show that allows things to change between seasons, is always going to have a big job to do. Almost inevitably, too big. "It’s About Time" struggles under the weight of having to catch us up on what’s going on in the Girls universe, and while I didn’t particularly love it, I’ve got enough good will towards the show to trust that Dunham and co. know what they’re doing.

As set-up for the rest of the season, this episodes functions fairly wonderfully. In four short scenes at the beginning, we’re basically caught up: Hannah is living with Elijah now. Shoshanna is still her manic self, and Marnie is getting fired from her job. (Sorry, she’s "transitioning.") Maybe most importantly, Hannah has a new love interest, in the form of Sandy. Donald Glover doesn’t get much to do with him here, but I love the actor, and I just pray they let him be funny at least once. Oh, and also, we see Dunham’s boobs before the title card even shows up, just in case we forgot what show we were watching, or what network it’s on. Read More...
