“Girls” is the most non-traditional TV series I’ve ever seen. And it’s good. At the beginning it was kind of hard for me to watch it. All these unstable neurotic characters who I did not like at all. But still there was something very attractive for me in this whole Hannah’s miserable world, so I kept watching and it was worth it. Culturally the show had many strong stand alone episodes, usually the ones that focus on one specific character, for me the final 2 seasons, 5 and 6 were both a masterpiece. Each depicted the maturity of growing up and broke the mold that that previous 4 seasons had established.
Whether you loved it or hated, you can’t deny its strong cultural message and its unavoidable link to the other 2 classics it often gets compared to. The thing is, and to put it quite simply, before they were “Golden Girls”, there was “Sex and the City” and before “Sex and the City” there’s the initial entry, “Girls”. A story that actually needed to be told and that was hilariously and honestly told, and for that it will always be remembered.

There are quite some trains of thought and statements in the show that are gems, so I will definitely catch up on Lena Dunham’s work as she progresses in her career. This series was quite a ride and I highly recommend watching this for those that might have been intrigued at the premise.
