5 Things to Do This Weekend Besides Watch ‘Girls’


The second season of Girls premieres on Sunday. But maybe you won’t be watching? There are plenty of reasons why you might not be watching Girls. Maybe you don’t have HBO and don’t know anybody who has HBO and don’t believe in illegally downloading the show. Or maybe you don’t like Girls and don’t really understand what all the hype is around Lena Dunham and don’t want to participate in something that you just don’t get. Or maybe you will be out of the country. As I said, there are plenty of reasons not to watch Girls this Sunday. But what should you do instead? You’ve got to do something good so that when everyone else you know is talking about what happened, you can tell them what far better things you were up to while they were glued to their television screens like lemmings. Lemmings!

Here are some alternatives to Girls.
