The characters are brilliantly fleshed out. No one escapes Dunham's scathing critique (including her own character, Hannah). These are silly people full of their own sense of importance basically fighting for attention like a box of puppies. Toss in rather graphic sex scenes and you've got one Molotov Cocktail of a show. My favorite character is the motor mouthed Shoshanna Shapiro who spits out one brilliant catch phrase after another. Never thought I could get into a show called "Girls" but I'm hooked.
Hannah’s finally growing up, and how she deals with the inevitable betrayals of people she placed too much trust in will provide Girls with a worthy season arc--and give the aspiring novelist inside the hipster some real material to come.
Displays a new maturity in the premiere, an effortlessly confident episode that's not bent on being controversial. There have truly been just a few bad episodes of Girls (the rom-com-y beginnings of season three). Dunham knows exactly what she's doing and she's good at it.
The first episode felt a bit on the weaker side, but it was nice to see a lot of healing going on with characters after last season situations prior to Hannah's final moments. Will be interesting to see where this season takes us. I still enjoy the show, but find it to be slightly diminishing each season just a bit. Hoping it delivers stronger by the end of this season.
"Girls" has become the annoying girlfriend and dramaqueen you so much dislike, but who enriches your boring routine. I cringe and yet can't look away. But once your had your dose, you're happy to be left alone again with your, by far, less boringly complicated life.
