Girls Recap

This ultra-relatable show is the perfect depiction of twentysomething life in New York City — it’s the best new series on television!

Girls has been getting a ton of hype, and the first episode of this new HBO series has the perfect blend of honesty, awkward moments and straight-up laughter!

The series was created by and stars Lena Dunham, whose 2010 film Tiny Furniture put her on the map. She plays Hannah, who has been slaving away at an unpaid internship until her parents decide to finally cut her off. After a misunderstanding leaves her without even the internship, she takes solace in the arms of her artsy (and doofy) boyfriend Adam (Adam Driver) — leading to one of the most funny and awkward sex scenes ever filmed.

Meanwhile, Hannah finds support from her friends: Marnie (Allison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet). Even though this pilot only touched upon their individual problems, they are uniquely funny and do not fit the mold which many stock female characters fall into.

Girls is definitely one of the standout shows of 2012. From the witty dialogue and unique characters to flat-out funny humor, it left us both laughing and cringing. We can’t wait to spend more time with our new BFFs!

Will YOU keep watching Girls, HollywoodLifers?
