Matilda Dixon-Smith: Overanalysing the Last Minutes of the “Girls” Finale

March 19, 2013


Girls might be the most polarising, talked-about television series in years. At You’re Dripping Egg we’ve written about the series twice already; and there’s no shortage of recaps, analyses and opinion pieces about Dunham, her show and her motives.

Thank God Jane Austen didn’t Have Facebook to Deal with by Mattie Mould

February 10, 2013
