Throwback Thursday: Bad Characters Make Good Television

Throwback Thursday: Because it's the season for Girls and Shameless again! Don't trust the B is still underrated. Sigh.

Three exciting things are happening in TV Land for me and Boyfriend!

Anyway, Girls is back on HBO.

*Except Shoshanna, of course
 At the same time, Shameless is back on Showtime.

And I just introduced Boyfriend to Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23 on Netflix.

Seriously you guys, it’s amazing.

Anyway, I’m noticing a pattern. It’s not exactly the same – I don’t like the characters on Girls but I like the show anyway, whereas I like the characters on Shameless even though they are all terrible. The point is, why do assholes make such good television? Probably because they’re more interesting than people who play by rules.

Do you guys watch any of these shows? 


  1. Alas, I don't watch any of these shows but I love William H. Macy. He's a genius.

  2. As much TV as I watch and I still haven't seen any of these...ok Breaking Bad, but that is it.
    There is not enough time in the day.

  3. I'm not caught up on Girls, but it's great television. I go back and forth on all the characters. Especially Marnie. Sometimes I really get Marnie and I don't think she's an awful person... but then she goes and does something really idiotic and I want to shake her. Shoshanna is the most consistently tolerable.

    I've not seen Shameless but I've heard nothing but good things. And Don't Trust the B is amazing!

  4. I have a love/hate relationship with Girls. They are all so foolish, I can barely stand it.

  5. Nope! lol. Never seen any of these. I'm all about Netflixing random food documentaries...I'm a nerd.
