All the GIRLS commentary this week has caused me to revisit a bunch of media that have been mentioned in comparison: WALKING AND TALKING, BORED TO DEATH, and some Mumblecore work, including YOUNG AMERICAN BODIES (Joe Swanberg and Kris Swanberg, Producers, IFC, 2006-Present). The entire series used to be easily available on IFC.com, but now you have to search pretty diligently to find the episodes. This is my favorite for the ending with Maggie; I can’t think of a better scene that captures casual sex in your twenties from a straight woman’s perspective.
Postscript: So the videos have disappeared yet again. Here’s hoping there will be another link or disc available in the future.
