This season, Lena Dunham’s Girls took us on an emotional rollercoaster with euphoric (and even drug-induced) highs and snorting-coke-off-of-a-public-toilet-seat lows. While last year’s episodes focused on character development and relationships, season 2 centered around the six main characters’ breakdowns and path to rebuilding.

While it has taken us a few days to really come to terms with the fact that there will be no new episodes of Girls until next year, we want to properly celebrate the madness and brilliance that was season 2. From the horribly cringeworthy to the utterly hilarious and everything in between, here is our collection of the most memorable moments of Girls ‘ second season.

Marnie and Elijah’s “Three Pumps” (2×01)

Girls Season Two Marnie and Elijah

This whole scene made us throw our hands over our eyes and peer at the screen through our fingers. It was messy, sudden, and just plain uncomfortable. Marnie’s desperation and Elijah’s loneliness were all too evident. Then Elijah kept repeating that the act only consisted of “three pumps.” If we never have to hear Elijah utter those two words ever again, we’ll die happy.

Hannah and Sandy’s Breakup (2×02)

Girls Season Two Sandy and Hannah Breakup

This scene was so poignant because it really delved into how some people today see race and politics. Hannah oversimplified and generalized the views of the conservatives and then defended white women as if they are a minority. The absolute best part of the scene though was when Hannah used “flip it and reverse it” in talking about white women, and then denied knowing that it’s a famous line in a Missy Elliot song. Hannah’s discussion of race definitely hit the nail on the head in terms of how hypocritical and backwards many people’s social viewpoints still are.

The Mesh Top (2×03)

Can we all just take a moment to appreciate how awesome it was that Lena Dunham spent more than half of the episode walking around in a neon mesh top? Sure, it was pretty jarring at first to have a clear view of Hannah’s chest but after a while the shirt started to look pretty cool. Trendworthy, even. In fact, we may have liked it better than the top she traded away. The image of her in that top will not fade from our memories any time soon.

A Conversation Between Friends (2×06)

Girls Season Two Marnie Hannah Conversation

Who knew that their relationship could fall so far? This scene between Hannah and Marnie was absolutely heartbreaking. We could see the girls drifting apart with each lie that they told. The combination of their faces, wavering voices, and lonely surroundings brought tears to our eyes and formed lumps in our throats. As Hannah writes in the season finale, “A friendship between college girls is grander and more dramatic than any romance … ”

Hannah and the Q-Tip (2×09)

Girls Season 2 Hannah Qtip

We all knew what was coming as soon as she put that Q-tip near her ear. We’ve all heard the horror stories. Lucky for us, we’re now all terrified of swabbing our ears out ever again. The look on Hannah’s face and that piercing screech that came out of her mouth was enough to make our skin crawl. This moment made for a really powerful indicator of Hannah’s mental state and will probably serve as a PSA for ear care for years to come.

Adam’s Sexual Domination (2×09)

Girls Season Two Adam and Natalia

That was the best euphemism we could think of for the horrible act that closed out the penultimate episode of the season. This single scene demonstrated just how much alcohol, and Hannah for that matter, has affected Adam’s life. You could sense just how uncomfortable and unhappy Shiri Appleby’s character felt underneath that maniacal version of Adam. We hope to never see that side of him again.

The “FaceSpace” Scene (2×10)


Season 2 ended with what was quite possibly the best scene of the series so far. The emotion of the scene stemmed from these two broken people essentially helping each other when nobody else can. Hannah chooses to FaceTime Adam because she knows that he best understands what she is going through. He knows about her past and loves her for it. Hannah, on the other hand, understands Adam’s issues but has not fully accepted them until now.

The image of Adam holding Hannah in his arms truly conveys the season’s closing message that everything is going to be ok for the both of them. If we had to pick the most memorable moment of the season, this would be it.

Nickelodeon debuts action-packed ‘Legends of the Hidden Temple’ trailer at SDCC

The brand new trailer features tons of nods to the original '90s game show!

4:33 pm EDT, July 23, 2016

Get ready for a serious dose of nostalgia, ’90s kids! Nickelodeon just premiered the trailer for the upcoming Legends of the Hidden Temple movie at San Diego Comic-Con and you’re definitely going to want to check it out!

The upcoming made-for-TV movie centers around three siblings who find themselves immersed in the temple after breaking away from a jungle tour. Once inside, they discover all the legends they’ve grown up hearing about the mysterious temple are actually real.

Being trapped in the temple itself may sound cool at the beginning, but the siblings will soon learn that getting out may be tougher than they originally anticipated. They’ll have to follow the map and survive the Temple’s many hidden rooms if they want to make it out unscathed.

Check out the first trailer for Legends of the Hidden Temple below!

Fans of the original game show are sure to recognize quite a few of the most iconic aspects taken from the beloved ’90s series. Olmec aside, the first action-packed trailer includes mentions of the steps of knowledge, the shrine of the silver monkey, and more — they’ve even managed to slip in mentions of some of the old teams contestant were able to play on when competing on the original game show!

The upcoming Legends of the Hidden Temple movie reunites Kirk Fogg (original TV how host) and Dee Bradley Baker (original voice of Olmec), and additionally stars Isabela Moner, Colin Critchley, and Jet Jurgensmeyer.

Legends of the Hidden Temple premieres on Nickelodeon in the fall of 2016.

Hot off the heels of the Wonder Woman trailer DC has released our first look at the art for Justice League as well as the first trailer!

It’s a very exciting day to be a DC movies fan! After debuting the Wonder Woman trailer earlier today, DC surprised everyone with the first official Justice League trailer which has been simultaneously released publicly during its debut at San Diego Comic-Con. It should be noted that the video, posted on Director Zack Snyder’s Twitter account, includes a title card at the beginning denoting that this video was made specifically for fans at Comic-Con. “The following footage was prepared by the filmmakers as a special look for fans in attendance at Comic-Con 2016.”

Click full screen, turn up your volume, and get ready for this!

The “trailer” (if that’s what we’re calling it) doesn’t give away much about the plot of the movie, however. It features Bruce Wayne checking in and recruiting Cyborg, Aquaman and The Flash – the three of which weren’t as heavily featured in this year’s Batman V Superman.

One of the more thrilling parts of the video is when Bruce Wayne shows up to meet The Flash and throws a Batarang at him. We get to see the slow motion perspective of The Flash while a Batarang whizzes by his face, with him ultimately realizing who has just appeared before him. Before Bruce even has a second to sell him on joining the Justice League, he’s interrupted. “Stop right there. I’m in,” says The Flash.

After the mixed reviews of Batman V Superman from earlier this year, it looks like Justice League might have taken some notes from the massive success of Deadpool’s light-hearted but serious comic book movie template. It already feels like this ensemble cast will lend itself to making up some ground in terms of likability. Ezra Miller’s The Flash is easily the “you-gotta-love-this-kid” character based on his one scene alone. Meanwhile, Aquaman will appeal to those burly, rugged Wolverine style fans. Both character types were missing from the sometimes confusing Batman V Superman.

Check out the full photo of the Justice League featuring our first detailed looks of The Flash, Cyborg, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman together in one place.


We still have a while before we get to hit theaters for Justice League. The superhero sure-to-be blockbuster is set to hit theaters November 17, 2017.

WB debuted a new trailer for Wonder Woman on Saturday morning at San Diego Comic-Con.

Gal Gadot and the cast of Wonder Woman introduced the new trailer, which offers a massive new look at the first female-led super hero movie (during this new wave of super hero madness, anyway). Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor and Gadot’s Diana Prince seem to have some great chemistry. And unsurprisingly, Wonder Woman gets up to a lot of ass-kicking in the three minute preview. Perhaps one of the coolest moments is when she fends off a lot of fire power, and one of the funniest moments comes at the end, when Diana equates Steve’s secretary to a slave. Watch below:

The movie is directed by Patty Jenkins, who has clearly done an amazing job bringing Wonder Woman to life with Gadot.

A new poster for Wonder Woman was also released, finally revealing her (colorful!) costume:


Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2, 2017. The film’s synopsis reads:

Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
