The thing about Girls is that you shouldn't come to it expecting to laugh out loud. It's raunchy, there's awkward nudity, and some pseudo-funny moments, but most of all there's a strong realism in the scripting, acting and directing that almost makes it feel like a reality show. Basically, it's not comedy, it's not drama, it's not bad, it's not good. It's just mediocre reality. And that is why I stopped watching at the end of season 1.

One of the most overrated shows I have ever watched. There is so much problematic stuff going on and I literally hate every character, but rapey (and yet glorified) Adam was the worst. He made me finally stop watching. Total waste of time.

im torn about this show. im way out of my 20s and so i wonder if this show "really gets" being 20 in the modern era or if its just a way for lena dunham to work out her personal issues/fantasies. i remember doing so many of the stupid things relationship-wise that these girls are doing. i think thats just part of being young and stupid and "in love". not knowing who or what you want in a relationship. being selfish (youre not breaking up with me im breaking up with you). trying to be adult and careful about your next relationship, trying not making the same mistakes and finding incredible new ones to make. the way they are so frivolous with their jobs is just incredible. 0 work ethic. really frustrating. i hope that part is not representative of the reality of 20somethings. i think my main reason for watching this is just schadenfreude. all the characters are so incredibly broken that i just cant look away. during marnie's karaoke scene at the work party i literally was watching through my fingers like a horror movie. and adam. i really dig him. funnily enough i think hes got his shit together more than any others. i mean hes crazy and broken like all of them but at least he realizes his faults most of the time while everyone else is just so self involved. i sometimes get the feeling that the scenes are set up just a little skits almost. there is definitely an over-arching plot of each episode but they dont flow all that well. im not sure if its just immature writing or if it meant to be that way; to feel the discord in these peoples lives. its almost as if i can hear the director calling action, see the actors hitting their marks, and then the scene unfolds. i applaud lena for the amount of time she spends half dressed. its great to see an average body type for a change. you could probably write an essay on each episode with its faults and highlights, moral and ethical questions it raises, and the dysfunctional relationships amongst the characters. this is either one of the most brilliant shows ever or a pretentious piece of crap. i think its worth a try though for most people.

Laird's hat is more fascinating than Hannah's character.

Am I the only one who thinks that the one-dimensional characters in this dramedy are super unrealistic? All four of the "girls" are spoiled, entitled, bratty, immature, narcissistic, and stupid. Sure, millennials can be all of these things from time to time, but are we really _that_ bad? I kept watching in hopes that Hannah/Marnie/Shoshanna/Jessa would become better people, but NOPE. Nobody grows an inch. There are a few funny bits, and their shenanigans are somewhat entertaining at least, but mostly this show is just frustrating.

this show was one of the most horrible shows i ever watched if i want to name one great mistake in my life watching 1 season of the girls would be one of them.

Season 3 Ep 1 is hilarious. Best thing about this series is the dialogue, it's extremely well written.

Girls just got stronger as the series went on. Lena Dunham who created, wrote, directed and starred is extremely talented. Pretty sure I'm not the target demographic (37 year old Australian male. We are fairly niche), but the writing and honesty in Dunham's performance is really something. The 10 episodes of season 1 felt very organic, they all fit together very well. By the end it feels quite tidy, but open for a second season. They make a nice nod to SatC in the first episode, but dismiss it. On paper comparisons on premise could be made, but it clearly isn't and they tell you up front. I found the character of Adam fascinating with an amazing performance.

Girls really turned out great during the season :-) Don't listen to the people who diminish it as a SatC copy/successor; it really is different.

Consistent, easily investible, completely average. It is a good show that stays rather consistent throughout its short six season runtime. With that being said, this show is your typical well written Judd Apatow show, with quality HBO production, but without the consistent Judd Apatow humor of Love, This is 40, or Knocked Up. It is a show that many people will enjoy, but the ones that love it will be incredibly niche. It is worth of checking out if you enjoy the realness of Judd Apatow content, or love a good coming of age story. With that being said, I would recommend Love over Girls. Average Season Review: 7.5/10 Recommendation: Watch if You Need Content (For Coming of Age Comedy / Drama Fans)

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ
