GIRLS RECAP 4: HANNAH'S DIARY

I hoped the title of this week's episode wouldn't imply what I had a feeling it implied. I hoped we'd just see Hannah writing in her diary, or hear snippets in a voice-over—something, anything besides another character reading Hannah's diary and getting information s/he didn't want, while I watched, cringing, from behind a pillow.

GIRLS RECAP 3: ALL ADVENTUROUS WOMEN DO

Remember those Cosmo-ish "Which Sex & the City character are you?" quizzes that every single editorial outlet featured during that show's run? Of course you couldn't take the results seriously; you can't "be" one of those people, because those people weren't people. They were slices of people, meant to illustrate (and easier to write than) the composite, contradictory whole.

GAME OF THRONES RECAP 5: THE GHOST OF HARRENHAL

One of the most appealing things about "Game Of Thrones" as a fantasy narrative is the lack of magic at the core of its story.

GIRLS RECAP 2: VAGINA PANIC

"Vagina Panic" is an attention-getting episode title—but nobody's really panicking in the second episode of "Girls" except Hannah, whose takeaway from a childhood viewing of Forrest Gump is an obsessive fear of contracting AIDS from "stuff that gets up around the sides of condoms." "Vagina Denial" might cover the subject a bit better.

GAME OF THRONES RECAP 4: GARDEN OF BONES

"Garden Of Bones" was perhaps my least favorite episode of "Game Of Thrones," period. The show has been such a success that seeing it struggle so much is a surprise. It’s still competent and watchable, but "Garden Of Bones" was frayed at the edges.

GIRLS RECAP 1: PILOT: ONE FINAL PUSH

Short verzh: yeah, it's niche and occasionally obnoxious. It's also super-watchable and good (in that "extractions portion of a facial" way at times, but still). Give it a chance.
