If you’ve noticed your internet connection has been slow over the past few months, that’s because every 20 seconds someone was hogging all your bandwidth by uploading another 3,000-word Girls think piece. And it turns out old white dudes in New England may have been reading all those, because NY Magazine reports white guys over 50 made up most of the viewing audience for the show, which ended its first season on Sunday. I don’t have much more to say about it because I’ve only seen the first two episodes, because streaming Girls is not something I’m willing to risk getting busted over (fantasy medieval soap operas with baby dragons, however…). But we know a lot of you don’t have that fancy HBO subscription either. So let’s do an informal end of season roundup: did you watch the show? How did you see it: HBOGo,torrenting, a friend’s house or something even more clever? And if you have HBO, can we come over and watch True Blood all summer?
We’ll take your other comments too about the season: are you excited for season 2? Or are we all over Brooklyn on TV after this season and ready to start seeing Queens get its due?
