Welcome to ‘What Is Your Damage,’ Annie Barrett’s summer shop of all the melodrama and self-absorption she misses from springtime reality TV. Every Tuesday and Friday, she’ll rant about a current offense to her humanity, then assess readers’ damages via video replies. Don’t be shy about admitting what annoys or intrigues you. We’re all in this pop cult together!
What is your damage, typically shirtless man-child Adam Sackler? You look like an “If They Mated” result between a Prometheus creature and Gilligan. You were presented as an enormous doucheboat (that you built all by yourself, gettin’ by with a little help from grandma’s $800 a month) on the premiere of Girls. Then in the last four episodes you became more complex — romantic, even — and I could tell I was supposed to warm up to you. You told Hannah you loved her, posted hundreds of “SORRY” fliers along a building, and carried a mattress and a chair down the stairs for Marnie. You were the best worst boyfriend in Brooklyn.
But you snapped right back to your old self at the end of the season 1 finale, so I’ve decided I have had it with your evil ways! (Until season 2, of course, when I’m sure I will love to hate you even more.)
