Screen Time: Age of Consent

scolari HBO

Whether or not Girls accurately reflects an NYC anyone recognizes as true, I will concede that Sunday’s episode featuring Bar Matchless painted a North Brooklyn bar scene that’s pretty much the same in life as in fiction. If you’re over 25 you may as well be Peter Scolari in a pork pie and the few middle-agers clogging up the place are men only. (By the way, James Cameron Mitchell looks good for 50 and it’s telling that Alex Karpovsky, who’s definitely older than Ray’s 33, has his age missing suspiciously from his IMDB profile and was cagey about his years on earth in at least two interviews.)

At least I got to hear my favorite New Order song.
