Product Description

From writer/director/actor Lena Dunham and comedy veterans Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner, this scripted half-hour series focuses on a group of 20-something women in New York and their adventures in post-collegiate floundering. Two years out of liberal arts school, Hannah (Dunham) believes she has the talent to be a successful writer, and though she has yet to complete her memoir (she has to live it first), her parents cut her off financially without warning. Further complicating things for Hannah is her unrequited passion for eccentric actor Adam, with whom she occasionally has sex (when he can be bothered to respond to her text messages). As the harsh reality of rent and bills looms, Hannah leans on her very-put-together best friend and roommate Marnie, who has a real job at an art gallery and an even realer boyfriend (neither of which she can admit she might not love). Meanwhile, their gorgeous British friend Jessa, who has travelled to as many different countries as she’s had boyfriends, appears in the city and moves in with Shoshanna, her naïve younger cousin with Sex and the City lifestyle aspirations. Over the course of Season 1’s ten episodes, the four girls try to figure out what they want – from life, from boys, from themselves and each other. The answers aren’t always clear or easy, but the search is profoundly relatable and infinitely amusing.

By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on July 11, 2012
Format: Blu-ray
HBO's "Girls" seems to be one of those love-it or hate-it propositions and I'm not quite sure why. Its creator and star, Lena Dunham, burst onto the scene with the micro-budgeted indie "Tiny Furniture" in 2010. Embraced enthusiastically by critics, the young talent was branded a new voice in contemporary comedy. But as the picture became more widely seen (it is available in a 2-disc Criterion edition), the backlash began. "Girls" has some of the same situations, concerns, stars, pacing and humor as the feature film and all of the supposed negatives that applied to "Tiny Furniture" have followed Dunham to "Girls." The show is still a huge critical success, it just seems to lack universal appeal. The most common complaint, I suppose, is that it creates a very insular world populated with pretty self-involved characters. It's a fair point, to be sure. But for everyone who says that Dunham doesn't "speak for their generation," I say that she never intended to. She speaks about her world, her life, and the things that she knows. It may not be identifiable to everyone, but it is eminently real and utterly believable! The world created in "Girls" exists and Dunham has skewered it perfectly creating a fresh comedy that is simultaneously absurd and truthful. This is a generation that has yet to find its purpose.

"Girls" is centered around four young women trying to navigate the pitfalls on the way to responsibility and adulthood. The characters ably showcase a combination of post-collegiate ennui and over-educated (and pseudo-intellectual) entitlement. Set in a fashionable New York City young, artistic and urban environment--the show's sardonic tone and cultural critique really speak to this specific subset of individuals.

I'm a 27 years old (28 in 3 weeks) African-American male. I'm obviously not the target demographic of the show. However, for some reason, I like these girly shows (and before you ask, I'm straight). I was a fan of Gossip Girl until it became stupid towards the end. Initially, I wasn't planning on watching this series, but I saw about a million advertisements for Girls in the NYC Subway. I finally decided to succumb to peer pressure. I bought the season 1 DVD from Target and watched the entire season in 3 days.

I can definitely see why some people dislike this show, but most of the episodes are entertaining. Watching this show requires some suspension of disbelief. The protagonist of the series is Hannah, a self-conscious and slightly overweight (but definitely not fat) girl in her mid-20's. Although she is book smart, she is completely dense. She once made a joke about date rape during a job interview. She quit another job she had after her ~60 year old boss refused to have sex with her. She reminds me of a female version of George Constanza. Hannah's frenemy is Marnie (sp?), an attractive but insecure girl. Hannah and Marnie have their cat fights and usually make up in the next episode.

Jessa is a hot British girl. She's an eccentric, pot-smoking party girl, like a raunchier Phoebe Buffay. Shoshanna (sp?) is the innocent virgin (SPOILER: she loses her virginity in the season finale).

What I didn't like about this series is that all of the male characters are douches. Adam, Hannah's borderline abusive boyfriend, is the dumb jock type. He rarely has a shirt on. He reminds me of Kelso from That 70's Show. Elijah is a recurring guest star. He's Hannah's ex-boyfriend who turned gay. He is the gay stereotype. Charlie is Marnie's boyfriend.

Pretentious, entitled, sexually promiscuous millennials bore the senses with first world problems while failing to function as adults. Awful.

I endured one whole episode, but it was worth it to know, without a doubt, that I never want to watch another one. The characters were shallow, vapid, and self-absorbed. Frankly, I couldn't care less what happens to any of them.

I had high expectations, since this show has gone on for multiple seasons and Lena Dunham has become a household name. But I found it boring, the characters irritating.

By the time I got through the third episode, I was over it! It's boring and lackluster. The characters are self serving and two dimensional. No depth or meat to them. While I applaud any show that promotes women's sexuality in a positive way, by the third episode all I could think was that this show is just mild porn with no real plot. The Hannah character is especially pathetic, constantly crawling back to a boy who cannot give her what she needs, emotionally or sexually. How is that a positive role model? In fact they all act sexually immature, like twelve year old girls who are looking at an anatomy book. I had to stop watching or my eyes would have been stuck permanently rolling. If you enjoy this, then kudos to you, but for me there are better female role models on Game of Thrones!!

I didn't find it funny at all, and the main character is quite annoying. I just couldn't stand the first season. I only watched it due to a recommendation of a friend. It was a disappointing.
