I wasn't too sure of Girls after the first two episodes, but I felt the 3rd episode was really top-notch. The writing was very crisp. This most recent episode was a bit of a step back, in my opinion, but still pretty solid. Obviously, due to the fact she's the primary writer this entire season, there are going to be roller coaster moments for the show, but for a 25 year old writer, she's doing a great job. Hell, for a 35 year old writer she's doing a great job.
I agree with all this. They should all try to be like the third episode, that was good TV.
Dino Stamamamanapolis (close enough) was sick of being an actor and asked them to do it. He was originally just a bit part but as his role got bigger it required more of his attention. Now he can focus more on writing and other behind the scenes things
