THOSE kinds of girls are yucky! They're all curvy and bumpy and soft and stuff.... yuck!
No, i'm talking about THESE girls....
Please tell me there are other people out there watching this show!
Girls is a new series that began in March on HBO.
This show is SO totally out of my wheelhouse, that if you would have bet me before it first aired that I would completely hate it, i would have agreed with you. But, since i love SO many damn shows that HBO produces, i reluctantly decided to at least give it a try.
Holy Bejeezus is this a fun show! It centers on the lives of four young 20-something chicks all looking for love and trying to live their lives in big bad New York City.
It's kinda exactly like Sex In The City, except that it's not complete horseshit!
What really sets this show apart is that the writing is scathingly funny, and honest. Where a show like Sex In The City continually painted those hags as perfect, jet-setting women with magically NO money troubles or any issues at all except who they were going to bang next, Girls really paints these chicks as typical selfish, self-obsessed, problem filled twenty somethings.
As i said, the writing is superb, and what is completely amazing to me is that is is all due to Lena Dunham, who plays central character Hannah on the show. She is neurotic, quirky, and wickedly funny.
She also writes, directs, produces, and created the show. And she's only 26 freaking years old! She completely rocks and it blows my mind that someone so young is basically putting this show together almost singlehandedly.
Of course, I could do the same thing, but no television network has called me yet. I keep pitching this great concept for a tv show. It's about a gorgeous hunky guy, who goes around the country banging hot women.
I haven't worked any out more of the plot yet, but i figure that should be enough to at least get me a pilot.
