Instead we got some bullshit pregnancy story line, a bunch of fucking pointless scenes, and ultimately a show that ended with the majority of the Girls not speaking to each other. I know the meat of the show is Hannah, but the show is still called "Girls", not "Hannah's Dumbass Life".

What Gets YOU Out of Bed in the Morning?

But something was missing. That zing, that thing that gets you out of bed every morning – it wasn’t there.
