As "Girls" heads into its season 2 finale Sunday night, water coolers everywhere are bracing for dull conversations devoid of tips on cotton swab usage and talk of bodily fluids.
The modestly rated HBO show, which follows a group of twentysomething friends navigating career and relationship troubles, has been a generator of critical reaction since its debut last spring. That talk hasn't muffled in its sophomore season -- including in this newsroom: Exhibit A and Exhibit B. And Lena Dunham, the wunderkind behind the show, is sure to keep the conversation going with whatever she has in store for the season 2 swan song.
Since HBO didn't provide us with a screener, we're left to wait and watch with the rest of America. And it got us imagining what we hope to see (the PG-13 version, that is, since this is a family blog):
1) Our ears are still ringing from last week’s cotton swab massacre. The season finale begins with Hannah, ears still bandaged up, closing her laptop eight times upon completing the eighth draft of her book. She moseys into the kitchen to open a package from her parents: it’s a WaxVac!!! Cue title card.
