The brand spanking new second series of Girls began today and I am ecstatic, or something along the lines of extremely happy. The first series saw Hannah, an aspiring writer living in Brooklyn, navigate herself through the ins and outs of her and her friends everyday and often obscure dilemmas. Accompanied by her friends Marnie, Jessa and Shoshana, she attempts to unravel the unpredictable character that is her 'boyfriend' Adam. He is fucking hilarious. He is so completely incompetent and offbeat, like ridiculously offbeat, and is played perfectly by Adam Driver.
Lena Dunham, who plays Hannah and is head writer of the show, displays the prefect comic timing and writes about proper girl issues, not just showing glamourousness as in shows like Gossip Girl. And it's not like the obvious slapstick comedy, it's the kind of hidden comedy that I love.
Also, the show has just won a Golden Globe for 'Series, Musical or Comedy' and Lena won 'Actress, Musical or Comedy'. GET IN.
The soundtrack is awesome too.
