Episode #29: Girls Girls Girls (and also Pirates)

I know it’s been a tough few weeks for you, because every week you’ve been watching the new HBO dramedy series and Sex and the City heir-apparent Girls, watching the whitest of Brooklyn white girls frolic about with their straight, straight hair and tights and all the while you’ve been thinking, “WHAT DO CYNARA AND JENNY THINK OF THIS?” or, more likely, “CAN CYNARA EVEN WATCH THIS SHOW WITHOUT PIECES OF HER BRAIN MATTER ENDING UP SPLATTERED ON THE CHESTERFIELD?”

The wait is over. Listen to this episode and you will know our minds on the topic of Lena Dunham’s first televisual offering. And you might be SURPRISED. Just saying!

Because Cynara was good and watched, at Jenny’s behest, all three thus far aired Girls episodes, Jenny allowed her to discuss a kiddie flick an animated picture: The Pirates! Band of Misfits, which, she notes, is brought to us by Aardman Animations, the makers of Wallace and Gromit.

End music: Bea Arthur performing “Threepenny Opera/Pirate Jenny.”
