Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on 'Girls' 'mostly white' world
Posted February 1, 2013
Lena Dunham recently railed in an interview against the 58-year-old men who don't get Girls.
Now, adding his voice to the critical choir is a 65-year-old man - and a very famous one at that.
The idea of basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar reviewing the HBO show sounds about as likely as Dunham doing ESPN play by play, but here he is on The Huffington Post dissecting Girls' zeitgeist-grabbing agenda.
Some of the NBA hall of famer's choice isms:
"Last season the show was criticized for being too white. Watching a full season could leave a viewer snow blind." This season's black character felt token to Abdul-Jabbar: "A black dildo would have sufficed and cost less."
The show is "like a checklist of being naughty: masturbation (check), sex during period (check), oral sex (check), anal sex (check), virginity (check), etc."
The girls of Girls? "Too self-conscious, too cutesy and not that funny."
Girls' voice, vs. that of My So-Called Life, is "safer, more mousy."
We can't wait to hear his deconstruction of Downton Abbey.
