A Guy on Girls: Slapping Your Dog, Scaring Horses, and Spanking the Monkey (S1/E3, “All Adventurous Women Do”)

While show writer Leslie Arfin’s now infamous comment about Precious was ignorant and smugly dismissive, it does seem that Girls is in a unique position of defense that they wouldn’t be put in if their audience weren’t smarter than the average viewership.  The show is in the clinch of appealing to sophisticated, educated urbanites who will (often rightly) tear it a new asshole.As John Caramanica noted in the Times this week, young bloggers perceive themselves to have more access to Dunham than they do to Tina Fey. She’s our age in the era of “all access”, and a Twitter devotee at that. Sex and the City didn’t take this kind of heat for being the whitest show on television prior to Blair Underwood showing up in season five.
