Last night was the premiere of HBO’s Girls, a show you may have seen me mention the other day.
Twitter’s all abuzz with reactions, both good and bad, from critics and viewers, but I don’t know that I’m ready to jump into that fray (yet?). For now I’m just looking forward to sitting back and taking in a few more episodes before I try to analyze my feelings on it any more.
I will say now, though, that while I recognized some things in these characters and probably will yet more (for better or worse), to my mind it’d be a mistake to think that we’ve got a whole generation covered here. That huge, unquestioned, ridiculous sense of entitlement they all seemed to possess, for instance? We do not all have that. Hannah & Co. are a *few* voices of *a* generation, and that’s OK.
Did you watch? What did you think? Will you tune in next week?
