It took me years to understand why that show hooked me. It’s the best TV show ever written about learning to become an adult, the difficulties of becoming a human being, and the ethical aspects of having power and talent. She’s also not obviously likable and she’s chubby and she’s trying to figure herself out. It’s very French, actually, and it drives me crazy.Will we soon see a Mindy Lahiri or Hannah Horvath in France? We have 40 years of gender reflection to do here to catch up to the U. — independent women here don’t want to be feminists. And in the ‘90s, we all grew up fantasizing about having an American high school. What American TV show has the biggest hold on you right now? Lena Dunham is trying to say something that hasn’t been said, and she doesn’t care about backlash.We expected to get lockers, cheerleading squads, and proms because we were watching and with Joss Whedon. I think it was a bigger success here than in the U. I don’t think she even knows what she’s trying to say, but I think it’s about how she shows her body and shows that’s she’s not just the ugly girl or the hypersexual girl — she’s all those things together, which make her human. I know it’s really silly and intellectual of me, but can she just be happy?

I think it’s because women here like to keep the mystery of human feminine seduction.

It’s the first time I’ve heard French people talking a lot about a French TV show.
Americans still expect us to give them a Truffaut in which the acting wasn’t very good. We feel like we can’t do it better than our old, famous writers and philosophers, so why try? I find it hilarious how many French people are critical of America and yet watch these shows.
We still don’t know how to go anywhere with a story. If French TV storytelling evolved, what would it look like? They think that Americans are not evolved socially. They pretend they don’t like American values, but they gobble up …Do you think American TV projects American values?
I’ve had many a conversation about American versus French pop culture with my Parisian friend Yaële Simkovitch, a script doctor who writes for Tess Magazine (sort of like a French Slate meets Jezebel), has hosted Paris fan summits for , and is the preferred translator of Joss Whedon when he comes to Paris.
