5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting characters in new show with a fresh voice, January 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Girls: Season 1 (Amazon Instant Video)
I love this show, and find it quirky, funny, & full of verisimilitude. As an older mom, who moved to NYC in the late '70s when I was 18, I am somewhat abashed to find I recognize aspects of many of the characters and situations. The story line revolves around a group of 4 friends who are new to adulthhood in the big city. Yes, it is often raunchy & cringe-worthy, and the characters are sometimes unlikeable... but, BE HONEST, weren't there times when you were their age that you were totally self involved & found yourself in situations (sexual & otherwise) that induce a mental and spiritual shudder now (now that you are grown up, that is). Hopefully, people evolve... but the process is often messy & painful. I would like to especially note the nuanced & intriguing performance of Adam Driver as Hannah's booty call/boyfriend. Breakout performance...his character is weird, animalistic, sad, intuitive, raw, truthful, & cruel...ALL AT THE SAME TIME. I watch to see where he goes with this character as the layers peel away. Lena Dunham has created a world that intrigues, amuses, & alienates...but it does not BORE. You will love it or hate it, but you won't soon forget it.

Yes! Loved your review! I,too,love the Adam Driver character. So weird. Like when Hannah comes over to break up with him, and her co-workers have drawn eyebrows on her, and Adam says,"You look like a Mexican teenager. It rules." I had to pause it while I laughed at that.
This show perfectly expresses the unsatisfying nature of dating in your 20's. You want the guy to be more loving,forthcoming,connected...but he's not. And the sex is often not nearly as good as you want it to be.
Thanks for your review!
