'Girls' Recap: Hannah Horvath And The Double Date From Hell
Hannah, Hannah, Hannah. A hot guy asks you out and what do you do? You bring him to your ex-boyfriend's current girlfriend's art show. No, really. For those of you who didn't watch the episode, that's exactly what Hannah did. This handsome, funny, sweet dude asks her out in the teacher's lounge...

Oh, wait. If you'll recall, last week Hannah decided to be a teacher because writing wasn't working out. "Those who can't do, teach." That's what Jessa said in response. Jessa is the worst, but that pretty much sums up this storyline.

Moving right along. Fran asks her out, and she actually radia...

Girls Season 4 Ep 6
Hannah Horvath is free. For maybe the first time on Girls, she’s untethered by boyfriend or career pressures. Even her therapist comments on how well she seems to be doing. And indeed, except for a minor meltdown over perma-roomie Elijah eating all of her cereal, she does seem unburdened. Big dopey Adam ending their relationship combined with her decision to leave writing behind has opened up realms of possibility. Scary, yes. Exhilarating? Kinda.

During a lunch with her less than helpful friends, Hannah realizes what the next step in her personal and professional growth should be. Her tr...

'Girls' Recap Season 4 Episode 3: Someone Finally Tells Jessa Of
Previously - Hannah discovered that she's not exactly a revelation as a writer. And Elijah came to stay.

This episode of Girls finds the majority of the characters just talking and talking and talking these BS touchy-feely circles around everyone else as a way of masking their own selfish wants and needs. You’re like “uh, that’s pretty much the show, J.” I know, but it felt a lot more prevalent this evening.

Hannah has been in Iowa for pretty much a day when she’s all of a sudden deep into a personal crisis over writing. Maybe she doesn’t WANT to be a writer, she questions? As she tells ...

'Girls' Season 4 Premiere Recap: Everyone's Still Awful
Girls is the only show that the other Mr. Harvey actively hates. My husband hates Girls the way you hate moving, root canals, and the RMV. It’s not that he doesn’t get the humor inherent in watching four young emotional sociopaths rampage through life in NYC. He just doesn’t find it funny.

Your faithful recapper, on the other hand, finds Girls to be a sharply written, often hilarious, more often cringe-inducing horror series that always spurs a reaction. Yes, Girls is a horror series with comedic overtones. If you approach it from that viewpoint, you won’t want to hurl something heavy at ...

While things seem to be going well for Hannah, her friends back in New...

Adam Driver is quickly rising to the top of the A-list, thanks to his role on HBO's hit series "Girls," and the actor recently sat down to discuss his career for the September issue of GQ magazine.

"It's hard to describe. You're put in these very heightened circumstances, and you learn a lot about who people are at the core, I think. You end up having ...

11 Stars Who Will Never Be People's 'Sexiest Man Alive'

Channing Tatum
Channing Tatum was named this year's Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine, the 24th guy to earn the superficial title.

Tatum joins the likes of George Clooney, Hugh Jackman, Harrison Ford, Denzel Washington and Brad Pitt on the list; which has been around for 27 years now; and we thought we'd have a little fun with it and come up with a list of the top 10 guys we think (and are pretty sure) will never be named "Sexiest Man Alive" by People -- or any other publication, for that matter.

It may seem a little mean, but it's all in the name of good humor; and if anybody can take it, it's these...
