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.

Much of this has to do with Lena Dunham, who stars, directs, and created this series. I was very impressed with her talent. Do I think Girls defines my generation? No - but the show definitely offers a different perspective than previously seen and I do find it relatable. It represents the time in your life when you have the education, and maybe even your intelligence has made you successful in school, but now you have to figure out what's next and how to survive in the adult world. The attitude shift in relationships is also interesting - the transition of the casual relationship that was typical in college to navigating serious, mature relationships.
My "Not for Everyone" comment is that this show has a quirky humor that you will probably love or hate. You will not see broad, sitcom-like setup humor. For me, I was laughing out loud (hard) through the whole first season. But I also have a weird sense of humor so I am on the same wavelength. Lena's Hannah is for me the most interesting. Lena is brave in that she lets her character do and experience things that aren't the most glamorous. She has flaws, but not in the silly cutesy way where the romcom heroine is just a little klutzy. She seems like one of your real girlfriends. Jemima is a charismatic actress, and her Jessa is a force that is fun to watch. Marnie is a foil for Hannah. She is gorgeous but also has her flaws. For me, Shoshanna is the weakest part of the show, but she is also the least featured so I didn't mind her too much. The up-speaking delivery I find annoying and the character is one-note (at least for this first season). Hannah's sometimes-boyfriend Adam is a gem.
Again, this show might hit the mark for a lot of people, but it just wasn't in the cards for me. I was interested as far as ending the first season, but not enough to get me to watch four more.
