This week: Hannah realizes that having a “real person” job can do wonders for your bank account and wardrobe, Ray breaks up with Marnie, Adam gets cast on Broadway, and Jessa falls off the wagon.

I must admit I am disappointed in how the characters have developed (or… Continue reading TV Review: HBO’s GIRLS Season 3 Premiere
