Girls Premiere: Brian Williams Reacts to Daughter’s Rimjob Scene

+

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams’ daughter Allison Williams totes received a rimjob in the Girls season premiere and Brian has nothing to say except for he respects the art. “She’s always been an actress,” her father said. “For us, watching her is the family occupation and everybody has to remember it’s acting, no animals were harmed during the filming, and ideally nobody gets hurt.” Imagine if this were Walter Cronkite.

Cute! It’s always great to have family support. Let’s just hope Marnie becomes more likable this fourth season.

And speaking of…. Here’s a recap of the premiere of Girls’ last Sunday on HBO.

Our over-quirked ensemble cast has returned with some major changes in the fourth season of Lena Dunham’s Sex and the City 2.0. The recap before the episode began took us through all those terribly painful times we’ve experienced up until this point. Remember the first sit down dinner with her parents? That’s how this episode greets us. It’s a #TBT moment for sure because of the familiarity we have with Hannah’s parents and those awkward and, yes, very familiar dinners. It’s just that now that Hannah is growing up and got accepted to the prestigious Iowa Writer’s Workshop they’re having a toast.

So, what did we get out of this premiere?

The new season promises growth. For those viewers out there who found themselves terribly disappointed by the previous subplots (Hannah’s OCD, Patrick Wilson’s adult affair)–they’re in luck now. Rather than orchestrating groups, the episode last night rather focused individually on the characters. Though Alex Karpovsky’s Ray wasn’t touched upon, too much, he did, however, get to reunite with our beloved Shoshana, who just received her NYU undergraduate diploma. Mazel! To her dismay, Shoshana didn’t walk the traditional graduation ceremony and, to our great suprise, we have a peek at Shoshana’s parents, Melanie and Melvin Shapiro, featuring SNL’s Ana Gasteyer. Shoshana is severely embarrassed by her parents’ names, which is funny, because I quite frankly would think it’d be awesome if my parents were Mel and Mel. Ana Gasteyer as Mrs. Shapiro is beyond perfect for the show and it’d be nice to have her back. Please?

Marnie has a good time in the kitchen with her fellow musician Desi. We woke up in the kitchen sayin’ how the hell did this s*** happen….Oh baby…. She’s perhaps the most unlikable character on the show but the setup for her singing career might just bring her to a place audiences can connect with. And thus foreshadowing Marnie will be taking big steps, whether her singing career works or not. She’s definitely not going to be signed to Sub-Pop. Marnie’s gig at a “jazz brunch” doesn’t help either. Or that Desi’s girlfriend accuses her of trying to steal her man. Or that a young Park Slope child whose parents are drinking Bloody Mary’s straight-up boos her off stage and even exclaims “Make her stop singing!” My favorite gay-bestie, Elijah (Andrew Rannellis) consoles Marn in the streets of Soho and even he has a personal confrontation amidst this entire catastrophe with an ex-boyfriend of his. This ex is nasty! Elijah doesn’t seem to even care. You go girl! “If you want to make in this industry you need to stop being a sissy”, he tells Marnie. Elijah doesn’t mess around. We love Elijah.

Jessa loses her assisting job. Upon starting her day of work, she has a run-in with Beadie’s (her former boss) daughter whose crazier than Charlie Sheen on an eight ball. Natasha Lyonne gives a rather theatrical and over-the-top performance as the daughter. It’s kinda funny. But then again, anything Natasha Lyonne is entertaining.

Our favorite TV couple, Hannah and Adam, are having a difficult time coping with the Iowa move. Their goodbye sex is awkward and when Hannah asks what the plan is Adam replies, “There is no plan.” Hannah obviously wanted something better than that so it’s not even bittersweet. It’s just aggravating. We know Adam has tendencies to not man up at times when he should but there’s an appeal there that leaves room for the future. Hannah seems to be doing fine with the transition but Adam, pursuing his acting career, just gives the impression that he’s depressed.

When Hannah finally moves, Marnie arrives gracing her with basic coffee (Starbucks) under the showering Brooklyn sky. Off Hannah goes to Iowa…Back to school, back to school… Adam numbly stares through the window as Hannah departs. Hannah’s parents argue in the car as she leaves behind her Brooklyn life and there’s something extremely bittersweet that hits Hannah, as she’s probably thinking, “This could be Adam and I one day–arguing in a car and bound by marriage and love”. I felt bad for Hannah but she’ll probably write her Not That Kind of Girl while she attends this Iowa workshop. Maybe they’ll purchase real estate in Carroll Gardens when she comes back one day… Who knows? We’re cheering for her as she strives for her success as a writer.
