watch: Girls

hbo-GIRLSSo, I’m a little late to the “Girls” train, but in the midst of all the controversy about the show, I actually took some time this weekend to watch season 1 and what has aired of season 2 and I don’t really see what the problem is. I feel like the show is a pretty realistic take on young 20 somethings who are trying to find their place in the world. No, they don’t represent everyone’s experience (I can’t think of one show that does accomodates everyone), but a lot of the things discussed in the show are relatable and could happen to anyone, no matter what their background.  Another great thing about the show is the honesty and rawness of the characters, especially the lead, Hannah, played by Lena Dunham. She is constantly exposing herself (in more ways than one), shedding light on the insecurities some women face in society.I feel like if people gave the show a chance, they might take away something from it, even if they don’t like the series as a whole.

    I think Lena Dunham is one talented woman. And at such a young age. I enjoy her humor, insight and how she lays her (and others) vulnerabilities out every week for us. I don’t feel so alone on Sunday night.

  3. I’m really keen to check out this show because I loved Freaks and Geeks!
