Tread Perilously

Tread Perilously moves into the uncharted realm of premium cable television with a look at the first three episodes of Girls.

Erik and Justin witness as writer/director/creator Lena Dunham works out her characters and possibly a few personal issues as characters find voices, her protagonist develops into an unlikable anchor and Peter Scolari scores the biggest laugh. Special guest David Duman tries to explain the show's growing momentum, but Justin is far too damaged by scenes in episode two to think coherently. Erik finds things to like in the terrible framing of shots and the slowly emerging comedic core. Both find little difference between Adam Driver's character on the show and Kylo Ren. Will the team press on into more episodes? Will Hannah ever get a job?
