That's way too much to handle.

    I can deal with a show about mobsters or millenials. But watching a show about web applications that have no way to gracefully deal with when their media end-point is down hits way too close to home.

    Unrelated, but everyone needs to be watching Mr. Robot nao. It's House of Cards of Silicon Valley. USA also made first episode available for free on the Youtubes.

    A big part of why I don't watch "Girls" is because I know all of those entitled twentysomethings IRL, and I can't stand them. So why should I seek out those same infuriating people in my free time?

    I haven't watched it too much, but from the clips I have seen, I think the criticisms of it are baseless. The things it's being criticized for are clearly meant satirically, as far as I have seen.

    Yes, we can be annoying at times, but we were told that we could be and do anything we wanted when we grow up, that we were all special, and that we were all the most important people in the world. What's happening to us in our twenties is that we're finding out that the reality is far more complicated for us.

    Talking about the 404 errors on HBO's website in the pic. I refuse to watch Silicon Valley, I have a feeling that it would make me want to rage, for similar reasons that @EJCC just elucidated on.

    I can't find what's-his-face's posts. What the hell is his name? Oh, Exlax. No, Jarlax. All this name-changing nonsense is total bullshit.

    I actually appreciate that Girls characters have many faults and are realistic maybe grotesque but still realistic. Sometimes I like them sometimes they are annoying- well life. There is something refreshing when I don’t understand what Shosh is muttering and awkward conversations oppose to tv shows where usually everyone sounds so smart and funny like they think over every line for hours.

    I think that it points very well the faults of young people beginning adult life (point and laugh) and yes I agree with @Vulcano that some of it comes from breeding or social factors. How egocentric are most of characters… and many of us.

    I understand that you may be bored watching again something similar to what you are watching every day, but it makes some good points.
