My sisters and I are involved with a new HBO series called “Girls”. I say “involved” because it’s the kind of all-consuming new obsession that can easily replace a partner, or at least a dull friend you’ve been meaning to ignore.
The comparisons to Sex in the City (four young women living in New York city navigating relationships) are obvious, but Girls is different because people can relate to not being able to afford lunch and to having awkward sexual encounters.
Fave scenes include but are not limited to: Hanna’s drug-induced panic attack when her parents stop funding her New York lifestyle (needing her tight skirt cut off with “a scissor”); Marnie creeping her ex on facebook while listening to Demi Lovato’s “Skyscraper”; Shoshanna’s accidental crack-induced pantless jog down city streets….
The best part is that it’s created, written, and directed by the show’s protagonist, Lena Dunham. She happens to be amazing.
Also, I found these…let’s play!
It really is the best, most honest thing I’ve seen in a long, long time!
