Now watching: Girls on HBO
Posted on

Every time my favorite shows end its season, I’m always in a panic what to follow next.
Desperate Housewives is finally ending and I’m waiting for the season finales of Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars. (I know, I watch girly shows.)
I’ve also downloaded ten episodes of Bethenny Ever After but haven’t watched any because sometimes I prefer to have many episodes ready before starting a season.
Recently Grace told me to watch Girls on HBO, which started only this April. I’ve seen Episode 1 and will watch Episode 2 later.

Girls

So far, I’m loving it. Having studied in New York in the ’90s, I’m obsessed with any TV show on the city. Some say Girls is the new Sex and the City, but I can’t tell because I have never seen the latter.
The show follows the lives of four girls struggling to make a life in New York, and what struck me in the first episode is, this is probably one of the few shows whose lead actress is kind of chaka.

Lena Dunham

One of her friends is a cute British girl named Jessa (played by Jemima Kirke), who has a gorgeous face and normal (read: fat) body.

So I thought, wow, this is different. Here are real-looking people we can relate to, not the perfect girls of other TV shows I mentioned above. Until I found out after while watching the credits that the reason why the lead actress is chaka is because she (Lena Dunham as Hannah) also writes, directs, and produces the show, which is kind of annoying.

Because it’s an HBO show, you can expect borderline sex scenes (read: not for your children’s eyes).
I’m just thankful Lena Dunham isn’t that illusyonada. You will see her in icky sex scenes with an ugly guy and not Bryan Greenberg!

adam?

That said I love the show and can’t wait to see it develop!
Probably the best-looking girl in the cast is Allison Williams as Marnie, who plays Hannah’s best friend and roommate

Completing the foursome is Zosia Mamet as Shoshanna who plays Jemima’s impressionable cousin.

I don’t know much more because it just started but it feels like a really good show to follow.

ohhhh…watch Jane By Design (ABC series). I’m so into it. It’s kinda like devil wears prada pero more romance and conflict between school and work.

Also, if you like drama and suspense try “Ringer (CW)”
If you want witches and cute bad boys try “The Secret Circle” (CW)
comedy try “Don’t trust the B**** in apartment 23” (ABC)
Also, I was so into “Remodeled” (’bout modeling agencies getting remodeled by Paul Fisher) until they put it into hiatus.

I’ve been hearing a lot about this show from my favorite sites (Jezebel, Girls of a Certain Age) and I’m so curious about this and Tiny Furniture! The cast daw are mostly kids of NY artists, playwrights and writers and real-life friends of Lena Dunham. I just have to find time to watch this between Mad Men and Game of Thrones!!

Lena Dunham also wrote and directed a film called Tiny Furniture. Also set in New York and also stars her and Jemima Kirke. She’s supposed to be Judd Apatow’s prodigy. #WalaLungs

Also, some tidbits about Jemima Kirke. She filmed the pilot of Girls 6 weeks after giving birth to her daughter, which I guess is why she looks normal/fuller. She’s fairly skinnier in Tiny Furniture. That’s all folks!
