  1. They should never have cancelled "The New Normal".

  2. He really should have been a regular already. I love his character and his relationship with Hannah and Marnie.

  3. This is cool. I loved him in Girls and didn't even know that he is an admitted homosexual.

  6. He gets to shine on this show much more than on the blanded-down New Normal. Looking forward to a new season.

  7. Girls is one of the worst shows on TV. It's juvenile, unrealistic, and has a patronizing attitude to gay men.

  8. I get it - because he's one of the "girls"! what a stretch.

  11. Funny how Lena wrote him out in season 2 because he thought "The New Normal" would make him a bigger star. Well...

  12. Jason hates "Girls," who'd have guessed?

    The writing on "Girls" is about 100x better than "The New Normal," which was about as far removed from reality as you can get.
