5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most interesting shows on tv 26 Nov 2013
Format:DVD
Girls is a great TV show.

I realise that I am probably the exact viewer that this show is designed to target (early 20s, female), but my fondness for this show surpasses how 'relatable' it is.

The characters are all great - deeply flawed, yes, but never boring. And despite the fact that they do fall into certain modern "tropes" (Jessa the "bad girl", Shoshanna the virgin etc.), they are nothing like the cardboard cut-outs that Sex and the City gave us.

This show is far more similar to something like 'Breaking Bad' than SATC; you love the characters despite knowing their damage.

It's just as much fun seeing them get into trouble - whether it's in their personal or professional lives - as it is to watch them sort themselves out.

Season 1 is very much a black comedy, whereas Season 2 can be surprisingly dark in places, especially later episodes such as 'On All Fours'.

There's also a strong overtone of the characters being part of a 'lost generation' - part of what gives the show its personality. As Hannah says in the pilot "I may be the voice of my generation. Or... a generation."

This show is great and I wish I had written it. More than I have ever spent on a box set but worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars The female version of Inbetweeners 25 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I kept hearing about this TV Series but was having no joy trying to stream it from Netflix or lovefilm. When I saw how cheap it was to buy series 1 & 2 I decided to just bite the bullet and buy it - which is not something I don't usually do when I don't know for sure if I will like it.

When I read the blurb I couldn't help but think of sex ant the city - I mean 4 girls living in New York City with the main character being a writer?!?! - but it's nothing like it at all. I love SATC but as with most films and TV series it is a Hollywood, shined and polished version of events. Girls is gritty and straight forward. I refer to it as 'real life TV' because I feel it is a very honest account of what life is really like for normal young women living in NYC. (or at least what I imagine it's like because I have always lived in the English Countryside). If you have seen Breaking Bad, you will understand what I am trying to say - it's grubby and shamefully truthful. There will not be any slow motion scenes of the girls strutting arm in arm down the street wearing their brand new manolo blahnik's but there will be plenty of scenes that will make you laugh out loud. There are also a lot of cringing scenes - do not watch with your parents!

I really love this TV series. I watched three seasons in 2 weeks. I love how honest it is and I love that it doesn't make me feel guilty about myself. The girls are normal sizes - none of that size 0 rubbish. The girls relationships with each other and other people are very honest as well. They get fed up with each other, argue, complain about each other behind their backs and go through natural phases where they don't see each other as much as they used to. All the characters are flawed and that makes you really like them. They are just like us.

4.0 out of 5 stars self-absorbed New Yorkers 21 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A beautiful illustration of how self- absorbed some people can be. No awareness of any other factors in the world but for those that impact on their daily lives, no thoughtfulness or caring. Intriguing.

The sex scenes are outrageous but real, and main lead wrote it and has lived experience of obsessive compulsive disorder.
