Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Hannah somehow manages to reach new heights of self-involvement in this episode, when a sudden death makes her ponder for a few seconds before her thoughts turn back to herself.

Her insensitivity appalls Adam, and he tells her so, but she continues unabashed, attempting to use the situation to her advantage at every opportunity. It’s classic Hannah, and very funny – mainly because, as with most of her more self-absorbed moments, it’s something we’ve all thought about doing. Fortunately (unfortunately?) most of us lack the sheer social obliviousness needed to attempt it.

But there are bum notes, including another dull subplot involving Jessa. And the scene where the increasingly wearisome Caroline leads Hannah and Laird on a gambol through a cemetery is clumsy and unnecessary – Hannah’s figurative grave-dancing is outrageous enough.
