Everything You Are Feeling About Girls


Phew. If you’re going to read one review of HBO’s Girls, make it this one. It admits to the “unstable blend of worship, envy, and disdain” that we all feel towards wunderkind Lena Dunham, analyzes how the timing of the April 15 premiere freed the series from the girly pack of New Girl and 2 Broke Girls, and doesn’t shy away from discussing the entitlement of the characters - the “rarefied white hipster thing,” as Dunham calls it. If Louis C.K. were a 25-year-old girl, would you want to be him? Probably, but even if you wouldn’t, you’d definitely want to watch his TV show.
