HBO’s Girls won 2 Golden Globes this weekend and is now getting tons of attention. When HBO started promoting it’s first season last year, I knew I had to watch and from the pilot episode, I have been hooked. I am head-over-heels in love with this show! Lena Dunham is a bright light of talent, a brilliant writer and a fearless actress. While my 20’s are in the distant past, and when I was in my 20’s, my life was very, very different from these Girls, I can soooo relate! The show is very adult, but it needs to be, otherwise it just wouldn’t work. This show could not be done on any other network than HBO and thank the stars for HBO! In a world that is saturated with vapid portrayals of young woman, this show is a breath of fresh air.
I love “quotables” and this show is FULL of them! Here are a few of my favorites:
“When I look at both of you, a Coldplay song plays in my heart.” – Hannah
“I think journal implies a 13 year old girl who rides horses, and is obsessed with her mom and it’s not what I’m doing.” – Hannah

“You are from New York, therefore you are just naturally interesting.” – Hannah
“I think that I may be the voice of my generation. Or at least a voice. Of a generation” – Hannah
“I’ll be your crack spirit guide” – Jessa
“You are so selfish, this is why you have no friends from preschool.” – Marnie “Uh, I have a lot of friends from preschool, I’m just not speaking to them right now.” – Hannah
“That was me showing that I cannot be smoted, I am unsmotable.” – Jessa
“It’s like, `Sorry I passed you an STD, but I really enjoy your quirky web presence.`” – Hannah
“I like a bar where the average patron would be described as crotchety.” – Hannah
“A little bird told me that you are gonna have an STD test. Fun.” – Shoshanna
“I’m letting you know that it is okay to act on this fantasy because I am gross and so are you.” – Hannah
So if you haven’t checked this show out, DO! and if you wanna talk GIRLS, let’s talk!
