Agreed. She doesn't annoy me like Shosh or (to a lesser extent) Marnie. I like that she's a bit more of an enigma.

Jessa's bullshit is a lot more tolerable when other characters call her on it and you realize she's just hiding behind her affectations.

Yes, that's it! She's more tolerable than the others. Plus, she's a free spirit and that's cool. Unfortunately, it makes her too reckless and induces eye-rolling in me. Luckily, not as much as the other three.

I really liked this week's episode.

I went through a similar situation earlier this year and the episode really rang true, at least for me. Siblings at each other's throats one minute and then laughing together the next. The discussions about who gets to inherit what. A dying relative definitely does bring out some weird shit. Obviously.

I loved the stuff with Hannah and her cousin. That hit close to home, too. It can be difficult and awkward maintaining a working relationship with a cousin if you don't live anywhere near them. Even if you've known each other since childhood.

Good stuff. I think the back half of this season has been a lot stronger than the first half.

It is feeling more and more like a sitcom. But at least it's a honest, well-written, insightful, well-acted, and enjoyable sitcom.

This week's episode actually reminded me of some older eps like One Man's Trash in that it felt more like a one-act play. Episodes like this would really benefit from being an hour long, a lot of character moments end up getting rushed where they'd be better unfolding organically. I do agree that the show is going more sitcom, but it can still deliver a nuanced character study from time to time (part of what makes the inconsistency so frustrating)

Great episode. Hit close to me too. I'm pretty sure I figured out which sister I would be in that situation, plus my other two sisters

Not sure if anybody noticed with the True Detective finale happening and all, but this might have been the best episode of the season. The role-playing stuff was hilarious and Dunham & Driver had great awkward chemistry.

Not the best episode of the season, but I did really love all of the Hannah/Adam stuff.

I got a bit nervous because Adam has gotten rough in the past, but luckily there was only brutal honesty here. I liked it when they were out in the street and that lone guy told Adam, "stay away from her, she's a psycho." That happens a lot!

I liked that the show had an episode exploring Adam's sexual hangups. They were prominent in the last two seasons but seemed to be casually dropped and unacknowledged this season, as the show does with so many things (see: Adam's sister). I'm not sure I buy that Hannah's love cured him of being sexually domineering though.

I've watched one and 1/2 episodes this season. They were much better than many of all the ones I watched in season one.

I think Lena's writing talent is far superior to her acting talent.

I loved the shot of Jessa hunkered down at the front of the building, smoking a cigarette. It was beautifully filmed and showed just how lonely and alienated she's become. And then Shosh quietly staring down at her was just the icing.

I liked that shot as well. Jemima Kirke can be very photogenic.
