HBO’s Girls—set to premiere next week, on Monday, April 15—chronicles the lives of four 20-something women, led by the quirky Lena Dunham as Hannah, living and working (or, uh, not working, as the case may be) in New York City. While clearly not intended to be as glamorous as another HBO original series, Sex and the City, who knows? Maybe realism will prove just as appealing. It’ll be interesting to see whether viewers find themselves relating to and thus enjoying the characters as much as they did SatC’s Carrie et al.
I definitely plan to give this a shot, whether because I myself am a 20-something in NYC or because I’m all for awesome ladies being awesome (even as they “live the dream—one mistake at a time” like the show’s tag line suggests; I mean, being able to constantly pick yourself up and get on with things makes you awesome in my book) or just because this looks like it could be genuinely good TV. Thoughts?
