Girls Season 1 Review

What Did You Think of the First Season of Girls?

Lena Dunham's much buzzed-about HBO series, Girls, wrapped up its first season this week with a few big personal developments for its twentysomething characters, Hannah, Marnie, Jessa, and Shoshanna. The show's first season is only 10 episodes, but it has plenty of funny, awkward, and memorable moments (I'm still laughing/cringing about the peeing-in-the-shower scene). I generally enjoyed the series, even when the characters didn't feel likeable or the scenarios relatable. I'm looking forward to seeing what will happen in season two, like whether or not Jessa will still be married, or if Hannah and Adam will try to make their relationship work. I'd like to hear from you, too — what did you think of the first season of Girls?

I really love this show. The girls are very real-- I especially love Hannah but all of the characters represent aspects of ourselves-- a more current and gritty look at 20-somethings and much more down to earth than Sex and the City.

This is a well written show. I enjoyed watching the season finale and think that the ending was a true sentiment of the characters personality! #GIRLS

Basically loved it.  It's the only show on TV in which I can truly relate to the characters.  It's representative of the transitioning, post-college, ambitious twenty something group - with out the gloss of romanticism or fanaticism skewing reality.

I found it impossible to like any of the characters. The few episodes I watched were depressing, degrading and quite frankly nauseating. I would rather clean every toilet on my block then watch this show again.

Loved the first season for so many reasons. One of my favorite moments was that Robyn dance party with Hannah and Marnie in the apartment, although I did love when Hannah didn't flip out about losing her bag in the season finale and instead enjoyed some wedding cake barefoot on the beach. Can't wait to see what season two will bring. I'm only bummed that I have to wait so long!

As a real Hannah, I never expected the HBO show, GIRLS, to be factually accurate, but I did hope for more emotional realism. So, I wrote a Dear John Letter for Lena Dunham. Check it out: http://janetmackenziesmith.com/2012/6/14/dear-john-letter-for-lena-dunham/

It was amazing. Lena is shear genius. Although I must admit, by last two episodes, Hannah's naive behavior starts to get old. Common girl, get it together. It's time to grow up! Get a job, and stop acting like a middle school girl when it comes to the drama in your relationships.

I still can't get over the ignorant comments made by Lena and that one writer in response to the criticism re: the lack of POCs, and neither should anyone else until some genuine apologies are issued. I get that the show is often self-depricating with the white, upper-(middle)-class privilege of its leads, but that's not nearly enough to convince me that at least a few people need to seriously check themselves irl as well. Oh, and if "crack spirit guide" being repeated a million and one times in an episode wasn't enough to convince you that this show has serious problems that you should acknowledge, than all I can do is pity you.

At times, the quirkiness was a little over the top, but when it was good, it was the best show on television. Real, fresh, and unlike anything else we've seen. I'm definitely hooked.

I certainly had plenty to say about this episode: http://makeitstop.me/2012/06/18/its-a-girls-world/

what's not to love about a bunch of frumpy, self loathing NYC chicks...the episode when the boyfriend started singing her diary passage - hilarious

Loved, loved, loved. And, I thought it got better with each episode. The "Crackcident" episode  was so amazing.
