10 Reasons Why Marnie on ‘Girls’ Doesn’t Suck

HBO’s Girls has been met with a polarizing response through its entire run, but there’s one thing viewers can agree: Marnie is the worst. Played by Allison Williams, Marnie is the Brooklyn foursome’s resident buzzkill. The stuck-up country club card member who’ll homewreck a marriage without a decent apology, hook up with her BFF’s ex-boyfriend out loneliness, and get salty and vindictive when one of her friends outperforms her at work. Basically, she’s not an easy person to deal with, but that doesn’t mean she’s the worst.

The girl’s got her charming quirks, too. But most of all, she’s just as neurotic and broken and lost and messed up as all of us. Specifically, here are the reasons why Marnie doesn’t entirely suck.
