I think I identify more with Hannah's parents than Hannah

I find myself doing this more and more often and it really freaks me out.
Ha, yes, me, too!

I identify with my desire to destroy everyone in this show.

Looking like I didn't write it in here, but anyhow one of the things that struck me watching the first episode was how different characters had to make distinctions between televisions shows and movies. First with Sex and the City and again with Clueless. I don't know what the significance is, but it seems like it has to be intentional.

Anyhow, very impressed again with the second episode. Some truly funny parts. The way Hannah sabotaged her interview was pretty great, even if I'm not sure anyone in her position wouldn't know when she needs to switch codes. I enjoy seeing the tangential characters develop a bit more as well, since Tiny Furniture seemed a bit too short to allow the type of growth that this format theoretically has in terms of character representation. Great ending too.

Flieger's wit is far more developed and esoteric.

I bet Orange is flieger's favourite Gatorade flavour, too.

Dunham was hilarious in the second one.

I'd hire her. Those Cobble Hill types don't know funny.
