“How do you know if you’ve made the right decision?” That’s the question at the heart of this week’s ‘Girls,’ which sees Hannah struggling to figure out if she belongs in Iowa, while Shoshanna has a hard time finding the perfect job back in New York. All we want to know is if we’ve made the right choice, but it’s impossible to know until the choice has been made.

The dust has barely settled from the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and already we’ve got a look at the lineup for the 2015 South by Southwest Film Festival. After an initial announcement that included opening night film ‘Brand,’ about comedian Russell Brand,’ things have filled out really nicely with a ton of promising-sounding selections.

‘Girls’ Review: “Female Author”

There’s something vaguely gnawing and anxiety-inducing about this week’s episode of ‘Girls,’ which splits its time between Hannah in Iowa and her friends back in New York, and finally gives us a clue about what Adam’s been up to while Hannah’s away. By now we’ve become very familiar with the willfully regressive nature of these characters, who function in juvenile, narcissistic cycles, with each revolution back around only bringing them the tiniest baby step further in their maturation. Two steps forward, one step back.

‘Girls’ Review: “Triggering”

Some of the best episodes of ‘Girls’ have taken Hannah out of her comfort zone and away from New York, whether that’s back home to visit her parents or going with Jessa to visit her absentee father. Moving Hannah to Iowa to attend the renowned Writers’ Workshop is an incredibly wise decision, not just for its potential to shift dynamics between characters or create new plot paths, but also because it immerses Hannah in a new world where she doesn’t know anyone—here we see Hannah differently, not surrounded by anyone or any places she knows; we see her the way others might see her.

‘Girls’ Season Premiere Review: “Iowa”

In tonight’s season 4 premiere of ‘Girls,’ it’s all relative(s), with appearances from Hannah’s parents, Marnie’s mom, and the introduction of Shoshanna’s parents, and it’s these relationships that help us understand who our girls are and why. As Hannah prepares to head off to the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and Marnie continues to pursue her dreams of being a successful singer, paths diverge and neuroses are reinforced. Hannah appears to be more calm and collected, but we’ve seen this from her before, and how long will (can) it last?

Pictionary! It's one of the few games that Jimmy Fallon makes his 'Tonight Show' guests play that hasn't been totally twisted from its original form. It's a classic. But it's also an interesting way to gain keen insight into the way various people operate, even away from the game-playing stage of Fallon's late show.
