No comments on the show, one year in? Staggering.
Even though I don't agree with the critical consensus insofar that Lena built the environment of the show from very get-go, to me it felt like the show didn't really find its rhythm until episode 3 or so. The first two episodes felt too much like a post-grad female version of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (never mind the S&TC comparisons) but it clicked once the core four characters found their footing. That's not to say the first two episodes weren't funny, of course; I'm just saying the other eight were much stronger.
My only lingering nitpick is that Dunham et al. writes such weak male characters (a/k/a "the boys of Girls"). Even though Adam saw the most development over the course of Season 1, his gawkiness and neuroses did wear thin at times. In other words, Adam was just as much of a loser as Charlie, Thomas-John, Jeff, even Ray. It'll let the alliterative names (Hannah Horvath, Shoshanna Shapiro, etc.) fly for now.
