Lena Dunham has created a very ambitious second season for her show this year, zooming in on unexpected characters and setting whole episodes in unfamiliar locations, trusting her audience to follow along. I’m not sure who will like this episode and who won’t, but for my part it felt like a bit of a stretch. Dunham has been writing for all sorts of characters this season — the mysterious doctor, Ray and Adam on their mission to Staten Island, and now Jessa’s father and girlfriend — and though I can understand why she wants to experiment with different voices, I wonder if she’s as adept at capturing the essence of a deadbeat middle-aged British estranged father as she is, say, a spoiled Midwestern Oberlin grad.

It looks like the Girls reality show that every female New Yorker of a certain age saw on Craigslist and briefly thought of auditioning for is actually being produced.

Good news for all you Dunhamaniacs out there: word on the street is Dunham and her Girls co-executive producer Jenni Konner are developing a new series for HBO. I know, “yay!”; now please stop shouting at the table next to mine about how you wish you were a Jessa but you probably contain more Marnie than you’d like to admit. We both know you’re a Shoshanna.
