Have you had the pleasure of watching HBO’s new series, GIRLS?
For those of you who aren’t familiar, the show, which premiered April 15th, is created, written, produced, and directed by one of the lead actresses, Lena Dunham. It is also co-produced by funny-man Judd Apatow.
The series revolves around the lives of four 20-somethings, residing in New York
and clumsily making their way into full-blown adulthood.
The show has received many a comparison to Sex in the City, but I find the two to be vastly different.
Though I love both series, GIRLS showcases women in a raw and real way that I don’t see often in television.
It’s refreshing to watch these ladies lounge around their apartments in old, oversized tees and boxer shorts as oppose to silk negliges with matching robes. Do people even own robes anymore? This show is also one of the first I’ve seen to really de-glorify sex, when many other shows work diligently to portray sex in a lusty and ever-arousing manner.
GIRLS is packed to the brim with witty humor and subtle moments of brilliance.
Whether you’re a woman or not, I think you’ll identify with at least some aspect of the series.
Opinionated, intelligent, and SO so entertaining.
