SISTERS – OFFICIAL TRAILER!

As if Christmas wasn’t enough, now Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and the entire freakin’ team from Bridesmaids is bringing us an extra special gift for the holidays! Sisters, the story of two sisters who come back to their hometown to I guess go through their old s*** in their rooms because their parents are selling their old home. And, they also throw a hugely amazing looking house party. The only surprising thing from this is Tina Fey playing the crazy sister, and Amy playing the well-to do one. Ha!

Also, shout out to John Cena and Maya Rudolph!!

Looks hilarious right?? What do you guys think?

Sisters premieres in theaters December 18th 2015.

Orange is the New Black – Season 3!

Can you guys believe that it’s been 3 years since OITNB was released on Netflix? It definitely hasn’t felt that long but watching this new season we can see how comfortable our inmates have become inside Litchfield. So I wasn’t sure how to go about recapping this entire season, it’s been full of amazing story lines, and amazing writing,  I think it has been my favourite thus far. Some reviews have been saying it’s their weakest because it’s been their funniest. I completely disagree, I think to have a season like this for their third season was perfect, we needed a break from all the heavy drama. This season felt less like we were being told a story and more like we were actually in Litchfield experiencing all these crazy shenanigans.
So let’s give all our special inmates some more time to shine by breaking down each character and discussing what they brought to this third season.
 First up Piper and Alex!

 

Piper

OITNB,alex and piper,piper chapman

Oh Piper, do you ever listen to yourself, like, when you speak? Piper’s character went from being the center of it all in season 1, and season 2-ish but was definitely an equal with all the other girls this season. This season Piper steps up and decides to start a dirty underwear operation by sowing together leftover pieces of material from their Whispers job assignment. She decides to make extra of these pink and frilly under garments and asks some of the prisoners to wear them until they’re dirty. Then she asks a new CO to take them out of the prison and hand them off to her brother who then sells them online. Crazy, maybe, but it worked. They sold like hot cakes. While Piper’s doing all this scheming she pays little attention to her now ‘offishyal’ girlfriend Alex who is dealing with her own crazy sh*t. Instead, Piper’s got her eyes on the new girl Stella who looks oh so cool behind that sewing machine. So obviously Alex starts to trip out and Piper’s not down for that sh*t, she’s like a boss ass bitch running her own operations now. Alex quits the biz just in time for Stella to swoop in and ‘help’ out.  But Flaca’s got her eye on the prize and she tries to tip over Piper’s business by reminding the ladies they’re not even being paid for their services. After Piper has no choice but to start dropping cash into the inmates’ commissaries the trouble really starts. In all of this Piper’s trying to juggle a bunch of things, she’s now running an illegal operation, Alex and her are no longer together, Flaca is on her ass, and she’s really, really into Stella. At first Piper assumes Flaca was the one who stole the money, but then Stella innocently admits to taking the money because she ‘needs’ it to ‘land on her feet’. It seems as if Piper’s about to care, but then all of a sudden the CO’s barge in and find a whole bunch of contraband (that Piper found) and it’s all over Stella’s things. Uh oh looks like Stella’s going to the SHU, or max, in that case say hi to Nicki will ya?
Favourite Quote of the Season: ‘I don’t f*ck around. Let people know.’

Alex

OITNB,season 3, alex vauseSo Alex is back at Litchfield, the season starts off with her wondering why and how she’s back there. But we all know how, it’s Piper’s basic white girl evilness. Alex is paranoid all season about Kubra her ex drug boss trying to kill her on the inside. The tables definitely turned this season between Alex and Piper. Alex has always been the instigator for most of their relationship, however this season Piper wanted to get on that V. Alex was just worried sh*tless that she was going to die. I did enjoy their dynamic, it was so different from what we’ve seen before and I love that Alex calls Piper out on everything. When Piper confesses that she’s the reason Alex is back in jail they argue but it just leads to hate sex. Later on in the season when Piper is all about her underwear business Alex chooses to step out of it because it’s become an actual illegal operation. One of my favourite scenes of the season happens when Piper talks about expanding the business and Alex is just over it all. She calls Piper gross, and tells her she doesn’t like this person she’s becoming. Agreed! But people do change when they go to prison. In the season finale Alex is in the greenhouse, when out of nowhere everyone leaves. Like how do you leave an inmate on their own tho? Anyways, she was just starting to stop worrying about Kubra and she turns around, and from the secret manhole in the greenhouse comes out Kubra’s assistant. And he’s ready to kill her.

Favourite Quote of the Season: ‘We all think we’re good guys’

Rihanna ‘B*itch Better Have My Money’ – VIDEO

If it’s the first thing you do today, be sure check out Rihanna’s new music video for ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’. I mean it’s not the greatest music video that ever lived but it’s Rihanna’s attempt at getting some attention before her next album drops.

Obviously, the video, which Rihanna promoted at the BET Awards with a 1-minute snippet, looks to be a video about some white basic b*tch owing her money. So RiRi kidnaps her. Let me just say this for real. If kidnapping is the only way I can spend a day with Rihanna and her crew – I’ll take it! So she kidnaps this woman, and does a whole bunch of fun stuff with her, and then in the end the video takes a huge literal turn and she literally is about to murder her ACCOUNTANT. Because HE stole her money! Even though I know RiRi wasn’t talking about some scam artist accountant when she wrote the song, I do appreciate her not inflicting a chainsaw on another woman! Girl power. As for my general opinion of the entire video, it sort of repeats itself, and for most of it you’re wondering what the f is going on? But she’s got some cool moments in there, but like what was the point of being on a boat for 3 minutes? LOL Rihanna you kill me.

Game of Thrones Season 6 Predictions!

Now that it’s been a few weeks since the Game of Thrones season 5 finale, we can start getting excited for season 6. Okay, it might be a year away but we’re allowed to speculate! Especially the way they left off with so many cliffhangers! Hi Jon you’re not dead okay :) Let’s go through some of the predictions were hoping for, and some we just don’t know anything about. Jon Snow Okay so I consider Kit Harrington’s article with EW (released the second after the finale aired btw) a complete bs story. Technically, like he says in the article, Jon Snow is dead but I think and most people should think, that he’ll be brought back to life. This will probably be possible because of Melisandre. I would love to have this question answered. If the writers didn’t want us to connect Melisandre’s return to the nights watch (to a possible resurrection of Jon), why did they show that scene in the finale? Why not wait until season 6 and have us all biting our nails wondering if she’s going to make it back to the wall to save him? jon snow dead, jon snow, game of thrones finale, GOT, Here’s my theory on all of this: A. We’ve heard stories before of R’hllor the lord of light bringing people back from the dead and if you read into the entire religion or history of the  lord of light there’s an like ultimate god I can’t remember his name, and he resembles Jon Snow exactly. Not by looks but by their journeys and accomplishments. Wiki fans correct me if I’m wrong here. B. The concept of bringing someone back from the dead happened in season 3 when Beric Dondarrion along with members of the Brotherhood Without Banners concerted to the religion of the Lord of Light. Beric died six times, and each time Thoros of Myr has brought him back. So we know it’s possible in this world. C. If you look at this show from a bigger perspective it doesn’t make sense to kill Jon at this point. It’s absolutely ridiculous and pointless. I’ve said this before, I believe Khaleesi/Tyrion/Jon are the trifecta characters of this series. George R R Martin spent a little more time on them, maybe he sees more of himself in these 3 characters than he does others. I don’t know what it is, but I do know they are the ultimates. Some people went as far as predicting the final moments of the series. Watching the three dragons ride into the sunset with all 3 characters riding each one. The first thought I had was ‘but they’re not fire they’re not Targaryens!’ And then I’m like wait Jon Snow probably is, and what if Tyrion is? What if Tyrion’s father was never Tywin?! Woah, mind blown. This got really deep and I might be crazy but ya never know! HUGE SIDE NOTE: Where was Ghost while they were killing Jon?! Ugh. So yeah, there’s my theory on Jon Snow. cersei walk of shame, cersei lannister, game of thrones finale, jon snow dead Cersei Now that she’s atoned her sins, like a quarter of them, she’s back at the castle with her Frankenstein. I feel like Cersei won’t make it past season 6, hello ain’t nobody got time for her! The sparrows will definitely find out about her and Jamie, and I think Jamie’s going to be the one to say it. Especially since his daughter admitted to knowing all along and still loving him. He’s def changed forever. I’m hoping Frankenstein will smash her head in so hard it explodes like Oberyn’s but at this – minor detail. Khaleesi There’s a blank space in my brain for Khalessi right now. I have no idea what to think of how we ended off with her. I can hope, that she’s been kidnapped, but she somehow gets the Dothraki tribe to believe in her and join her cause. It’s obvious that she can’t always have her people protecting her, her dragons aren’t going to win over the world for her, she’s going to have to put some work in herself, and that’s completely understandable. I think this will be her time to shine and show she has the power of a queen. khaleesi, khaleesi rides dragon, khaleesi game of thrones, emilia clarke, jon snow dead Sisters Arya and Sansa, I really have no idea. Brothers Bring Bran back!! Or bring him back in the form of a dragon! Whatever it is I miss that kid. I really would like to see one of the siblings connect again, I don’t know if that’s in the cards or if it even makes sense to see them together but its season 6 and I want what I want. Jorah I really wanted to believe greyscale had the power of good somehow, like maybe you can’t burn in a fire or some sh*t. But obvi Shireen + fire = not good so that theory’s out the window. I can only assume Jorah will live the ‘yolo’ life while looking for his Queen since he’s on the clock. That’s about it. Brienne Besides being the most useless character of season 5 – relax, Stannis was basically already dead, she might play a big role next season. But I have no idea how that’s going to happen. gameofthrones,GoT,HBO,georgerrmartin,gendrybaratheon,khaleesi,jonsnowdead,jon snow And last but not least, because boy I did not forget about you – Gendry! He’s technically the King right now by being Robert Baratheon’s oldest son but he probably shouldn’t let anyone know that. I think he’s going to come back at some point. Maybe next seasons finale episode? I don’t know how they’ll insert him into the plot but I think he’ll be a crazy twist. Or maybe he’ll just be Arya’s soulmate. I think those are all the theories I have for now. We still have 12 months before next season so who knows what we can come up with. Let me know what you guys think!

TOP 10 Game of Thrones Moments From Season 5!

Hiatus officially over! We are back in bidness with brand new blog posts, tv recaps, podcasts, more! But first, let’s discuss season 5 of Game of Thrones because really we need time to heal.

10. Stannis burns his daughter
Okay this wasn’t that much of a surprise because we all know when GoT builds characters with an emotional back story it’s only to tear and rip them to shreds. By the end of the season Stannis is in a pretty sh**ty position and decides his only option is to listen to the Red Woman and burn his daughter alive! Like you couldn’t of killed her first and then burned her? Welp, it doesn’t work in his favor and Stannis miserably loses the battle if you can even call it that. All I can say is Melisandre you best be using some of that magic on our boy next season.

9. Sansa and Littlefinger in the tombs
Arguably one of the most important scenes of the 5th season (holy were actually in the 5th season?!) The discussion of Jon Snow’s mother and whether or not Ned Stark was actually Jon’s father has always lingered in the shadows for die hard GoT fans. This season we finally heard whispers (Littlefinger) and stories (Ser Barristan RIP) about Rhaegar Targaryen and his love for Lyanna Stark – Ned’s sister. Hmm, could this possibly mean Jon was never Ned’s stark but instead the child of his deceased sister? Which would mean Rhaegar was Lyanna’s baby daddy, and Catelyn stark got jealous of a made up prostitute for no reason! Littlefinger hints something at the sort to Sansa in the Winterfell tombs but she’s too busy worrying about her wedding night to think anything of it. Girl where yo head at?

8. Jon Snow and white walker fight
This was definitely the battle of the season, sorry Sons of Harpees and Stannis – that wasn’t even a battle bro. When Jon Snow arrives at Hardhome all eyes our on our ginger lumbersexual- lol ahem I mean duh the wildlings. And then duh THE FREAKIN’ ZOMBIFIED WHITE WALKERS TOBOGGANING OFF THAT CLIFF THO. Nobody was expecting it, especially the wildlings woman kissing her daughter goodbye like girl showing emotion gets you killed off this show no surprise there. The battle leads to a one-on-one fight between Jon Snow and one of the grandpa white walkers. Jon heads for the cabin that has all the dragon glass and by all I mean like one piece. He can’t get to it and instead grabs his sword because his is the biggest and baddest  (insert dirty look emoji) and surprisingly blocks grandpas blade and then stabs it through him killing the White Walker. Which tells us that dragon glass isn’t the only thing that can kill a white walker. Which leads me to believe everyone needs to get their butts over to Valyria and start diggin”! UPDATE: Lumbersexual made it out alive, no hairs were burned or harmed during this scene. Phew.

7. Arya says goodbye to herself
As a book reader I always loved Arya’s storyline. And although I didn’t get through all the books I did get pretty far with Arya’s storyline at the house of black and white. Loved it, because who didn’t love Kill Bill? Bad ass birches getting sh*t done. We’re all about the heroines. Okay. So loved this scene the way it was shot was beautiful. How a scene with no dialogue brings such emotion is absolutely brilliant and is a testament to how filmmaking can do so much with so little (and by little I mean words not money because they definitely have a lot of that). I just love the irony in all of this, how the one person who wants to remember her past, who is only motivated by the names of these horrible people has to literally give that all up to move forward. When she pulls out needle and contemplates on getting rid of it, you remember everything’s she’s been through, and needle is the only thing that’s seen it all just as she has. It’s heartbreaking and powerful and will probably be one of my favourite scenes of the series. FYI, she doesn’t give up needle, she hides it.

6. Tyrion and Khaleesi
Okay so I’ll admit it. I never thought in the beginning or even last season that Tyrion’s journey would lead to Khaleesi but it all makes sense now and I love it! Of course she needs his help, let’s be real here, Khaleesi, Tyrion, and Jon Snow are the trifecta of George R.R Martin’s books. They’re his favourite characters, they will have to meet at some point. But of course it takes him more than half the season to get to her but it was so worth it! And home girl was looking on point when Tyrion showed himself at the fighting pits! Huge scene, not just because we’ve been waiting, well some of us, but we were waiting for them to meet, but also what it means for the future of the show. Looks like Tyrion will finally get to try his hand at ruling a kingdom.

5. Arya gets Kill Bill
Finally we get some revenge! When Arya spots Ser Maryn Trant at the docks in Braavos she knows what’s up. She follows him like a paparazzi all day, until he ends up at the whore house where we learn he’s also a pedophile. But Arya’s like next level right now so she wastes no time in borrowing one of the many faces to sneak into the whore house and stab that a**hole in both his eyes and then continues to stab him in the stomach a few more times. Wasn’t it great? And then, because she doesn’t consider herself better, or just because she felt like it she gets down on his level, to her knees, tells him who she is. Arya Stark! He babbles and we as the audience get that he gets she’s Arya Stark. It all clicked, we felt it. And then she slits his throat. Ohhhh yeah. Then she loses her eyes but girl do not give up!

4. Khaleesi gets kidnapped?

Yes this has a question mark at the end because does she get kidnapped in the season finale or does she get swarmed and celebrated by her original OG people? Because really, they need to stop yelling, or create a distinct yelling sound that express danger as opposed to like a celebratory yelling. I mean I would love to think they’re cheering her on, and welcoming her back to their squad, but that’s probably not the case. However, I do think this is the perfect opportunity to show just how smart and brave she can be on her own. She’s always been surrounded by her protectors and obviously her dragons, but I think Our Queen will come out of this even stronger, and who knows maybe they will join her regime. Because clearly the Unsullied aren’t doing their jobs properly.

3. Cersei’s walk of shame
This scene is award worthy. Not for the CGi because some of us could really tell Lena Heady’s head wasn’t really on dat bod. But damn those writers sure got it right when they figured out how to shame Cersei Lannister. I don’t think this is the end of her sadly, but it was an amazing scene that I think needed to happen in this season. If it wasn’t for a bunch of crazier things that happened after that, people would still be talking about that walk.

cersei walk of shame, cersei lannister, game of thrones finale, jon snow dead

2. Khaleesi rides a dragon
YAAAAS QUEEN. This scene in the fighting pits was absolutely cray cray. The Sons of Harpees reveal themselves at the fighting pits surrounding Our Queen and her people. Ser Jorah saves the day but real talk Drogon saved the day. At the last second as Khaleesi and her people are basically done for, Khaleesi closes her eyes, and we hear Drogon! Drogon swoops in burns a whole bunch of Harpees, and then waits for his mama to get enough courage to hop on dat and ride off into the sunset.  I love how Dario and Ser Jorah try and try but they’ll never be a dragon, the thirst. But really boys, don’t stop because she still needs your help. That animal got her lost. So, I also loved this scene because in that same episode Shireen dies. And if you recall Shireen showed us and Ser Davos that in her storybooks princesses do fly on dragons. Ugh so cute.

1. Jon Snow’s dead….but not really
A BIG LOL @ everyone who thinks Jon Snow is dead. You guys really think his journey is done? Ya think Melisandre is going to give up on that D? Hell no. I did not for a second believe he’s dead. Okay technically he’s dead, but he’s coming back. Because hello, people do come back in GoT world and don’t think we don’t know about Lady Stoneheart! I see you DW + DB. Trying to trick us with these fake interviews and sh*t. No.

The Walking Dead: Episode 12 “Remember” Recap

One of the things I’ve been working on lately are podcasts. I’ve done written recaps of my favourite TV shows, but I wanted to try something different and turn the recaps into more of a conversation.

My friend and I started a podcast called “Recap Rewind” so we could have a platform to share our discussions about our favourite TV shows. Not only are we close friends,  we know how to have a good laugh. We started off with Pretty Little Liars (since we have so much fun making fun of that show) and now we’ve added The Walking Dead to our list! All of our podcasts are available on YouTube with download links in the description. We’re in the works of getting it up on iTunes but we’re hoping to have a bigger fanbase before we do that.

Below is the link to the most recent Walking Dead episode. Season 5, Episode 12.

DRAKE Secret Album!

Happy Friday!! Oh my, yes it is. I’m telling you, the only thing that pulled me out of bed this morning to face the -25 weather was finding out about Drake’s secret mix take. It’s titled, ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ and the release has fans everywhere losing their ish. Girl, Beyonce thought she’d be the only one to drop a secret album!

If-Youre-Reading-This-Its-Too-Late-DrakeIf you’re a fan of Drake then you know he’s been in the ‘6’ (Toronto to outsiders) since November, working on what was supposed to be his next album. Except the album we thought he was making was going to be titled ‘Views From the 6′.

But yesterday, Drake released a short film-ish music video titled “Jungle” that was very impressive, but also very confusing, because what was the point of the short film? It barely had any music to it. Well now, it’s obvious that it was a secret message or some sort of preview to this ‘So Far Gone’ mix tape sequel.

On my commute this morning I listened to a few of the songs, and like any Drake album it’s filled with introspective anecdotes of his life. It’s all Drake, but it also isn’t a Drake that I’ve heard before. He’s definitely angrier, he’s coming from a darker place, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it’s just not what I was expecting. But, it also connects nicely with the “Jungle” short video, there seems to be scenes in that video that tie in throughout the entire album. Also, songs like “Legend” and the title of the album weird me out because it seems like he’s saying, if I’m gone tomorrow, this is what I’m leaving you with. Creepy, right?

 

What do you guys think of the album so far?

 

This Week in TV!

With a new year upon us comes an array of new seasons of our favourite television shows. Okay, maybe array was a reach because there’s not a whole lot that’s started just yet. (Waiting on Scandal, How To Get Away with Murder, and of course Game of Thrones)

Memorable shows of the week: Girls, Shameless, Vanderpump Rules

GIRLS

Lena Dunham and her crazy bishes are back for an all new season. Totally forgot how we left off last season, but still totally excited for the girls. Hannah is on her way out of the city for a graduating writing program in Idaho. Yeah, Idaho. Adam has no gained control of their apartment, she’s no longer paying rent so I guess this means she’s gone for good. Or at least until she realizes she’s making a huge mistake, which seeing how there’s only 10 episodes a season won’t take that long.

Brunch

Adam’s all heartbroken that Hannah’s leaving but doesn’t show it at all at the beginning of the episode. He’s all ‘we have 10 different ways of contacting each other –we’ll be fine’ and then in the end he finally admits he sucks at using the phone. Hannah assures him they will be alright. Nothing like boring missionary sexy (very unlike Hannah/Adam) to guarantee how wrong she is about their fate.

Shoshanna had the best lines of the episode. This is what’s so amazing about the writing of this show. They have about 27 minutes to explain all of everything, and each line of dialogue has to be used carefully. While she’s picking up her diploma we realize how crazy her divorced parents are, she says “Both my parents are named Mel (Melvin & Melanie) it’s the worst thing that ever happened to me. And it was like the first thing that ever happened to me”

Jessa visits Beadie, the woman she tried to kill last season. Let me make that clear, Beadie was on her death bed and begged Jessa to basically feed her a bunch of pills so she could overdose. Welp, it didn’t work and now Beadie’s angry daughter played by (Orange Is The New Black’s Natasha Lyonne) is back in the city to take her mom back home with her.

Marnie and Desi perform a few songs at a brunch, we find out that Desi is still dating Clementine, but is also still sticking his face in places it doesn’t belong. (ie; Marnie’s ass) Clementine confronts Marnie and apologizes to her for thinking she was trying to steal her man. Oh Marnie, now you’re up against the nice girl! While Marnie sings a song dedicated to Hannah titled, ‘Inward and Outward’ she breaks down crying when some brats around the restaurant start running and screaming. Elijah gives her the pep talk of the decade.

In the end, Hannah is ready to leave. Adam isn’t ready to leave, so he avoids the morning of and Hannah leaves without a real goodbye. As her parents drive of her off, he watches them from the window of their apartment.

Side note: There was a conversation between Shoshanna and Ray, something about her apologizing for making him get into a relationship with her. I don’t even remember that, nor do I care about their storyline. Ugh, he annoys me.

Girls airs Sunday nights on HBO

SHAMELESS

Shameless is like, probably in my top 3 favourite shows. I love my medieval times, zombie apocalypse genred shows, but there’s something special about the raw/real moments of Shameless. I would definitely consider Shameless a ‘dramedy’ a blend of really heavy dramatic moments with surprisingly refreshing comedic bits. I think it’s a perfect combination of both genres that create really great television show. It’s summertime in Chi-town which is going to make this a little more interesting, majority of the show has taken place over the colder months so I’m excited to see our characters flourish in the atmosphere of bbq’s and pool parties.

Shameless

Seriously, if you’re not watching Shameless you need to.

Shameless airs Sunday nights on Showtime.

Vanderpump Rules

I don’t even know why I’m admitting to watching this show. It’s like the worst show on television, or at least the worst example of reality television. It’s so ridiculous, and I know it’s all set up drama, but ya can’t help but watching! Especially since everything else is on hiatus right now, desperate times.

vanderpump-rules-cast-season-3.png.pagespeed.ce.-R284eJIGMzFNzeLjmfd

I just want to say though, this season has been different, in a good way. Especially these past two weeks for Scheana and Shay’s bachelor/bachelorette parties. You can tell that this group is actually friends with one another and it sort of – almost, reminded me of the Jersey Shore cast. In my opinion, you don’t always have to have fake drama to catch people’s attention. Sometimes the funny moments with real friends is enough to start a cult following!

Which leads me to my next point – Stassi. Okay so why is she on the show though? She no longer works at Sur, she quit, and she loves to remind us on a weekly basis that she would rather die than put on a Sur uniform and work there again. Since the season started almost all her scenes have been when she ‘visits’ Sur, somehow has a heart to heart with Lisa Vanderpump, and bugs all the bartenders for a glass of white wine. Girl, bye! Like why are you even here? Last night’s episode had the most epic line of all time. Lisa Vanderpump having a sit down heart to heart with Stassi inside Sur. After telling Stassi she should just forgive Katie for basically nothing because Katie did nothing wrong, Stassi blows up and storms out of the restaurant. Lisa finally says what we’ve all known, Stassi doesn’t want friends, she wants followers. This is so true, and for the past 3 seasons I’ve watched all her ‘friends’ get into all this drama because of her. I just want to pop in and be like ‘ya’ll could have so much fun without mean girl molly’ and by the looks of the Miami trip, they sure did. VR should take a page from Jersey Shore’s rulebook that clearly stated, if you quit or got fired from working at the Shore Store you were kicked outta the house! It’s time for Stassi to pull an Angelina, take her trash bags and get out!

Vanderpump Rules airs on Bravo on Mondays (US) and Slice on Tuesday (Canada)

10 Things Girls and a Gay Guy Learned From Watching GIRLS!

Can you believe it’s already time for HBO’s Girls Season 4? The new season premieres this Sunday January 11th. We’ve been a fan of this show since it first aired and we’re super excited for the new season. But before we start predicting what we can expect in the upcoming 10 episodes, let’s go through some of the things we’ve learned from watching Girls.

These are the Top 10 Things Girls and a Gay Guy Learned From Watching Girls

10. Getting a gig at GQ magazine doesn’t mean you have all your sh** together

Let’s be honest. We all thought Hannah finally got her sh** together when she landed a writing gig at GQ magazine. I was quite excited for her, seeing how she was lost and always in between side jobs for 2 seasons. It was inspiring to see our main character finally get what she always dreamed of…but ya know she had to go and mess things up. No but for real, Hannah knew right from the get go the GQ gig wasn’t at all what she had hoped for. She felt that there was something bigger out there for her. Playing it ‘safe’ was never Hannah’s motto.

 

9.  Singing a Kanye West song to get revenge on your ex at his hipster corporate party. Bad idea.

This moment will probably go down in Girls history as the moment when Marnie [Allison Williams] finally made us laugh. When she finds out that her on/off again boyfriend has hit it big with his mobile app company, she wants back in. Why wouldn’t she? All of a sudden his life seems more interesting…and other girls want him? So she needs to get revenge or somehow catch his attention – so she sings her acoustic/crazy rendition of Kanye West’s “Stronger” in front of his entire work party.  In the end he did end up getting back with her so I guess it worked? Until they broke up again for the final time.

 

8. Don’t ever let co-workers play with your eyebrows

Hannah's Eyebrows

To this day, this image still puts me on the floor hysterically laughing. Just because a woman’s eyebrows are a treasured space on the face, why would she let anyone she just met touch her brows!! #girlbye When they’re done with her eyebrows…she flaunts them like they’re shaped to perfection. It’s absolutely hilarious! Lesson learned – there should only ever be one person that touches your eyebrows…a professional!!

 

7. Weekend retreat with your girlfriends might be the best thing for your friendship

Some might say this episode was their favourite of the entire series- and for sure it was a good one. It was unique in that we got a chance to see the girls ditch the city for a getaway weekend in the ghetto-er version of the Hamptons. It literally is the quintessential outing to let it all hang out with your girlfriends! Shout out to Shoshanna for laying down one of the best monologues of the series. This episode made it all feel like real life.

 

6. People can change. Exhibit Adam

I could never figure out where the writers were going with Adam’s character. I mean it’s easy to assume they weren’t going anywhere with his character because he was the guy with no goals and no aspirations, he didn’t need a ‘purpose’. Fine. But this last season, he truly showed that people and characters can change for the better! Somewhere, deep down in that smelly dark soul was a really cool guy that fit semi-perfectly with Hannah. It was the closest she’s come to the ‘real thing’. There’s hope for all of us!

 

5. Every girl needs access to a gay best friend.

Elijah was someone that I didn’t think would be a main character in the show…but duh! Why not!? These days who doesn’t have a gay best friend!? And some of Hannah’s best scenes were with Elijah, he’s with her through thick and thin, and even when things get awkward (Marnie + a couch) the besties still find their way back to one another. There’s just a next level type of bond that comes with having a gay best friend and Elijah and Hannah are the perfect example of that.

 

4. There will never be an okay age to lift your dads naked ass out of the bathtub

Oh god. This scene gives me the creeps, but it is so hilarious! Season one, when Hannah goes home for the weekend and her parents are getting it on in the shower, and then her dad topples over! And her mom calls in Hannah to help her lift him up! Ugh! There will never be an okay age to see what Hannah saw. I mean, lesson learned, it’s going to suck when our parents get old.

 

3. Girls, we’re confusing and do weird shit sometimes but you learn to love us anyway. Exhibit, Adam and Ray

No matter what guys say- they will always find a place in their hearts to love us. Just look at how cray Hannah,Shoshana,Marnie…okay basically we’re all f*@!&n  crazy. These characters are the extreme versions of craziness and the boys somehow accept their craziness and love them regardless. Boys, face it, Robin Thicke knew it, Adam and Ray know – ya’ll are lost without us.

2. First time experiences will always be awkward as hell

First time experiences can always be super awkward and it’s been a stand out quality of Girls to always show the most real and most awkward moments of life. They’ve never sugar coated anything, they never turn things into ‘Sex and the City’ chic, this is real life people! I think that’s what fans of our generation have loved most about this show. Lesson learned, nothing is as perfect as what you see on TV. Unless you’re only watching Girls, then yeah, you’ve nailed it. Pun intended.

 

1. Nobody (ages 19-28) knows what they’re doing in life and everyone’s lost. And that’s okay

Life

I’ll never forget the first promo trailer for Girls, it had Hannah talking to her parents and telling them she was the ‘voice of a generation, or a voice, of a generation’ and it’s been the major theme of this show. It’s eye opening, it’s inspiring, and it’s sort of comforting knowing that everyone our age is going through the same thing. We’re lost, confused, and deciding on what we’re going to do for the rest of our lives….and all of that….is okay!

The fourth season of Girls premieres Sunday January 11th on HBO.
