I don't know what I expected of the show, just started watching it out of curiosity. It's odd -- there seems to be no real point to the show, just following the lives of these four girls in NYC. Despite my apparent disinterest in the show or its plot, I still find myself watching it, so it must be all right, right? It seems to be aimed at taking the place of Sex and the City for the next generation, however in Girls, I do not see an actual reason for the show, there are no lessons learned, the characters are slightly less likeable than those of SATC, and it just seems more average in every respect. From what I gather, that's the point of the show, it's just an account of modern-day life for 20 somethings, and that's not really of interest to me, personally.

Laughing through the pain, after viewing the first four episodes....: Yes, it's frequently funny, but most of the events involve cruelty, selfishness, and stupidity on the part of the characters. Hard to find instances of loyalty or tenderness within thise group. There is quite a bit of (simulated) sex, but the acts seem almost uniformly joyless and un-sexy. I assume the show's creator, Ms. Dunham, is giving form to her own life experiences and view of the world. That vision is to be respected, and we are all fallen creatures, but I turned off the TV after episode four feeling rather depressed and drained -- not necessarily the goal for a "comedy."

Utterly shocked and dismayed at what I saw. Not much more than smut.

The first episode was already disgusting and poor. I still made an effort to like it by watching the 2nd and 3 Episode but it was already PAINFUL to keep watching it. I love myself very much to keep wasting my time with this garbage 'award winning show' it really makes me want to cry, the fact that shows like this can win awards... that proves how low we have gone in our society and TV shows like this just keep feeding the mediocrity and lack of values. If this is why they wanted to show then they win lol... in reality I ask myself, Do people nowadays really talk and act like that?

It's very hard to see these young women with little to no feminist consciousness, not to mention self-esteem. At one point I thought I might continue watching just to see how they evolve, but mostly I think the show's not intended for me. I do want to give kudos to the acting and general production, and I even recognize there's something fearless about Lena Dunham in her writing/directing. She takes chances and at least doesn't feel the need to make every female glamorous and seductive. I will continue to pay attention to her career, if not to Girls.

This series is completely devoid of any moral value whatsoever.

I wanted so badly to like this show, but the narcissistic ravings of a bunch of spoiled children was too much to bear. I'm 26 and found myself empathizing more with the parents. It made me really sad to watch - and not in a good way. More in a weep-for-your-generation and get-me-off-this-planet way. I guess maybe it hit too close to home for me. I have too many friends from college whose parents pay their rent while they float from job to job, get stoned all day, and blame everyone but themselves for their aimlessness.

This series is delightful in its modern approach to young people making their way in our screwed-up world. The treatment from the perspective of young women is refreshing if somewhat governed by previous movies and TV shows. Really, except for the frank treatment of sex and bodily functions, is that different from That Girl and other precursors. But I am having no trouble watching it and enjoying the nicely delineated characters, which avoid most cliches. These are believable characters, who are fun to watch.
