"But look, the fact that kids right out of college are self-deprecatingly romanticizing their lives on the internet for whoever wants to pay attention isn’t really the problem. Sure that increasingly loud chatter is, on principle, fairly aggravating, but the true enemy here, the ballet flat-clad villain, is what’s actually being said. In Koenig’s world of twentiesdom, and on Dunham’s lightly parodic but also sincere show, kids are stumbling around with a “aren’t I a beautiful, fascinating mess” attitude that prizes self-imposed ennui and quirky angst over anything, well, productive. It’s all stumbling for stumbling’s sake with the vague but entitled hope of a bestowed reward at the end."
