Parenting Teens Expert Review: HBO’s Girls Season 2 Week 5

This episode was the most complicated yet. Hanna the star of the show hooks up with an older separated man who seems to have the perfect life, the perfect job, the perfect apartment and knows exactly the right thing to say and do in every situation. It is clear that Hanna is very confused by the stylistic difference between this man and the behavior of those in her age group.

Hanna sticks around for a bit and appears to enjoy being in this man’s company. Ultimately, though, it appears that he is too confusing for her with all aspects of his perceived perfection and she heads home to more familiar people and behaviors. It remains to be seen whether or not Hanna will return to her old boyfriend. My bet is that she will because she is comfortable with familiarity.
