I have not watched Season 1 but decided to check this HBO series out because of the good reviews it has been getting. Lena Dunham, director and script writer, is probably a very intelligent woman. However, she made the mistake of finding every single opportunity of getting herself naked in front of the camera, showing off her not-very-desirable (at least in my opinion) body. In some way I think she was living up to her own fantasy in the story. Conclusion: perhaps the younger folks will like it. Not my cup of tea.

A continuation of the chaos sparked in the first season, the second season really brings out the characters. They glow as people this time around. You'll fall in love with some; you'll hate others. Mais, c'est la vie. This season adds a focus on the men in the series, which are actually some of my favourite characters. Although it has been compared to SEX AND THE CITY, one has to realize that SEX AND THE CITY was all fluff and dazzle. Everyone did the right thing in the end and fell in love and lived happily ever after. Not so in GIRLS, a much more complex series. There's a reason why HBO picked them both up. They're different and, sure, you can draw a line from the cast of SEX AND THE CITY and the cast of GIRLS, but that's also true with DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, DESIGNING WOMEN, and THE GOLDEN GIRLS. The foursome is not a new thing; the combination of a screwball sweetheart, a naive gal, a sexually liberal chick, and a sensible woman has always been comedy gold. Why veer from what works? Regardless, GIRLS is well written this season, just as it was last, with a slightly different feel now that we're no longer doing introductions. This season, Hannah deals with a stressful book deal that has her reverting back to bad habits, Jessa deals with the aftermath of -- gasp -- a marriage after a shotgun wedding, Marnie deals with unemployment, and Shoshanna deals with a grown-up relationship that's not like the movies and more like the real world. My only disappointment? The season is only 5 hours long, like the first season. After watching the episodes, you're begging for more! I'd recommend it, with this disclaimer: GIRLS is not SEX AND THE CITY, so please get over it.

The second season of Girls continues to follow the lives of four 20 something girls living and working in New York City. The series may have something to offer the younger crowd learning about the real world. Otherwise the storylines are boring and depressing. One expects more from an HBO production.

D o not waste your time!!! I watched the first two seasons and will definately not be watching season 3! It started out as being a novelty series and just keeps getting worse and worse with the unrealistic views portrayed. Hannah would in real life, never, ever have the encounters she does on screen and only does so because she is the writer, producer. It has become so ridiculous and fantasy-like (for the narcissist Hannah) that it made me literally sick to my stomach (especially the episode with Patrick) !!!! I mean, come on!

Sexual Content: Plenty of nudity, male and female, and loving making scenes. Some very kinky. Not for children for sure.
