Another hilarious, cringe-inducing episode. I thought this one was particularly well-written. She finally made ME fall in love with Adam. Also -- dude is so bipolar. (And Adam Driver is really fucking good at his job.)
Yeah Adam's like my favorite character now. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?
Also, Chris O'Dowd's bizarre accent that went wildly in-n-out.
"When I was young I named my vagina 'Sara'. Without an 'h'."
"I've always wanted to fuck a Sara."
"Without an 'h'."
"...I heard you."
"I saw your mom's cunt. It was an accident."
I thought this episode was a bit over the top. Neither of the "outbursts" (Adam and the taxi, Chris O'Dowd and the experimenting women) really felt like they belonged there. Everything else about it was great. Especially Chris O'Dowd's mash-in's and his attempts to get in on the kissing.
Chris O'Dowd's speech really exemplified something that makes this show so interesting to me: I kinda agreed with him on some of the stuff he was saying. Of course, him demanding sex because they spilled wine on his rug was bad, but on a lot of the other points he really had them dead to rights. Just what the fuck was their game plan on going to his house and fucking with him? He was the only person being honest in that situation from the get-go, and they were acting just like the attractive, spoiled girls that they are. I'm not saying that they had any obligation to do anything with him, but they knew that they were leading him on from the start.
Then again, he eventually came off like an asshole, but that's part of the weird dynamic this show's got going. Every time you start to identify with a character, they do something harsh and off-putting.
Chris O'Dowd's rant came off weird to me because I forget that only Marnie works when I am watching the show. Tons of shows have characters (especially the young group of friends genre of show like HIMYM, New Girl, Friends, etc) who supposedly work but all they ever seem to do is hang out, so seeing characters hang out endlessly, it doesn't strike me as priviledged or spoiled so much as television.

"It doesn't make sense to get out now. There's pee on you."
One person's TMI is another's JEI
I just didn't get why Jessa stuck with it when Marnie obviously wanted to hook up with that dude and she had no interest in any of it. It was a weird female cockblock (Vag badge? Snatch patch?) and weirder still that Marnie didn't just tell her to go home. And don't give me that "Jessa wanted to protect Marnie from a skeeziod" shit, because that's not in her character. If anything she would encourage Marnie to use this douche to cut loose, have a meaningless fuck and get Adam out of her system. (His name may not be Adam -- sorry i can't pull the ex b's name.)
Adam is Hannah's guy. Charlie is the one you meant.
I think this is a great show.
Adam Driver is turning in great work. I think he's giving us one of the best performances in TV right now.
Although this is not an example of that, I still love Marnie reporting "he was taking a dump and drinking a glass of milk." That is fucking comedy right there.
EDIT: Just went to the guy's IMDb page (not a reliable source, mind). His bio is simply:
"Graduated from Juilliard.
Used to be a marine."
Talking about saying a lot with just a little.
