Not that HBO's 'Girls' didn't already court its fair share of controversy, but the Lena Dunham-scripted series took an exceptional amount of criticism this past season for sex scenes between Dunham's character Hannah and guest star Patrick Wilson, as well as those between star Adam Driver and guest Shiri Appleby. With production on 'Girls' season 3 underway, Dunham has issued her own responses to the criticism, calling one scene a "terrible miscommunication."
'Girls' season 3 was thrown for a loop shortly after the airing of season 2 finale "Together," when series star Christopher Abbott abruptly quit the series after his character Charlie was positioned to take a more integral role. Now that 'Boardwalk Empire' and 'The Walking Dead' star Michael Zegen has joined 'Girls' season 3, however, speculation has begun that Zegen may replace Abbott in the role rather than portray an original character.
Yesterday we learned the admittedly unsurprising news that HBO's 'Girls' was due to receive its very own porn parody, courtesy of Hustler. The HBO dramedy's regular use of explicit material led the director to declare he didn't have to change very much in crafting his parody, but what does 'Girls' creator Lena Dunham have to say on the matter? Check out the latest 'Girls' controversy inside!
Though HBO's eternally buzzing Lena Dunham dramedy 'Girls' made little regular habit of cliffhangers, many found themselves perplexed by the the unusually optimistic ending of season 2 finale "Together," which largely reunited the season 1 couples. That ending was thrown into chaos by the sudden departure of actor Christopher Abbott, for whom the season 2 finale had suggested a larger role, but what do Abbott's castmates have to say about the exit? Preview Marnie's updated outlook in 'Girls' season 3 inside!
Only a few weeks have passed since HBO's 'Girls' ended its second season on a curiously upbeat note, with several characters returning to the relationships they maintained at the outset of the series. That finale may prove even more difficult to justify in retrospect as series star Christopher Abbott (Charlie) has abruptly left the series altogether, prior to filming any season 3 episodes. Find out what caused the big 'Girls' season 3 break inside!
While it's incredible to think that HBO's 'Girls' often gets half the ratings, yet twice the attention of something like Showtime's 'Shameless,' it's hard to believe that 'Girls' has almost already reached the end of its second season, kicking off with this Sunday's "On All Fours." Dirty sounding titles aside, Sunday's episode will see Hannah experiencing a setback while Marnie goes after her dreams, and Adam continues things with his new lady-friend Natalia (Shiri Appleby), but how would you like an early sneak peek?
