Why I Watch: Girls

No show is without its problems, and Girls is probably one of the best examples of this. The show, and creator Lena Dunham, have come under a lot of fire recently for the inability to incorporate diversity into the show’s cast. There have been several other criticisms for the show as well, which begs the question: why do I watch it?

Why I Watch: Happy Endings

Happy Endings, the show with an almost-but-not-quite questionable name, a stellar cast, and writing that busts guts the world over – and yet, it’s also the show that averages 4 mil viewers per week.

Truly, I never thought you’d catch me claiming that a children’s show is genius; however, I think that may be because, for one, I don’t watch much children’s television, and second, American children’s television isn’t as grown-up as Doctor Who (and from what I’ve heard, most British children’s television in general). Never before have I heard of a show that transitioned so well for children and adults. I mean, really, Neil Gaiman loves Doctor Who (and wrote a fantastic episode), so how can you argue with that?
