  • Major improvement...

    I actually thought this episode was quite hilarious. I find Hannah's character to be incredibly funny. Her comic timing is priceless in this episode. Her reaction to her ex being gay left me laughing for minutes and their argument; now that's good writing.

    Soshanna is another character I'm really starting to like. They're giving her to us in very small dosages but she's making an impression with her teen like atitude and need for sexual experience.

    I still don't like Marnie. I get her character is supposed to be uptight, but she does it in such a naggy, annoying way that she makes it impossible for me to enjoy any scene she's in. Also Jessa, I don't get her role on the show. I mean they put her on for 3 minutes each episode we barely get what she wants and what's going on with her.

    Alot better than the first two episodes. Like I said in my previous review, it's going in the right direction.moreless
  • The Results Are In

    Hannah gets a call from her OBGYN and learns that she does indeed have an STD, HPV, and when she asks Adam about it he denies that he has it and so she makes an appointment with her ex-boyfriend Elijah to ask if he's the one who gave it to her. Jessa gets a babysitting job watching over two spunky young girls one of which even has a novel. Marnie's boyfriend shaves his head for a woman at his work who has cancer and Marnie finds it repulsive. Hannah catches up with Elijah where he tells her that he's gay and is currently seeing a man which she didn't know about. They snipe at each other and she tells him that she suspects he gave her HPV in which he says that there is no test for HPV in men and so Adam was lying when he got himself tested. Jessa bonds with the father of the kids and does some weed and tries to guess his age. Marnie meets an artist, Booth Jonathan, whom she admires at a showing at the gallery she works at. She begins to fall for him and when there's some tension between them he ruggedly says, "The first time I f*** you you might be weirded out. Because I'm a man and I'm good at doing things." What a strange line it is. The defining moment scene of the episode was Marnie and Hannah dancing to "I Keep Dancing On My Own" by Robyn after Hannah updates her Twitter with Jessa's saying about women with HPV that "All Adventurous Women Do" clearly choosing a positive outlook at it. On a weird note it was good to see Marnie take a romantic interest in someone so that we see a more passionate side to her since her relationship is rather stale. Also, Hannah needs to find a job I'm really stressing about that for her with everything that's happening in her life right now.moreless
