I was recently tipped off by a very annoying individual to watch HBO’s Girls. Naturally, I rolled my eyes and ignored the suggestion. Then in a moment of weakness, I watched it, and I was mesmerized. Though I’m a huge Sex and the City fan, the comparisons between the two shows is what initially turned me off. But those comparisons are far off the mark. It’s an artsy, character-driven show. In fact, the main character, Lena Dunham, is also the creator and writer. The idea began with a call from Judd Apatow who took a liking to Dunham afer watching her independent film, Tiny Furniture. Apatow is also a producer. Watch the trailer below.
