7 Reasons To Watch Girls

7 Reasons To Watch Girls

Just to clarify I'm not suggesting you be a peeping Tom, I'm talking about the HBO series Girls; which is bloody brilliant by the way. Unlike every other attempt to encapsulate the Generation-Y female mind, this one actually does it justice. Created, written, directed and starred in by Lena Dunham; the series, which just finished it second season, is a very fresh perspective on what it means to be in the limbo of child and adulthood. (Cue Britney singing "I'm not a girl, not yet a woman")

  1. It's genuinely funny, and not in a typical way. These girls don't hold back in the slightest and it makes for some great dynamics within their relationships.

  2. The 'girls' themselves. They're all unique to each other, but yet totally relate-able. There is a bit of you in each of the characters and yet you don't know what will happen next.

  3. Charlie. Just watch it, and then you'll understand.

  4. The nudity, if you like boobs, bums and other lady bits, then this is your show.

  5. The soundtrack. It's cool and indie but not in a pretentious hipster way, and it always works well into the show, not just a random song of the moment stuck in their for the sake of it.

  6. You'll (probably) feel better about yourself. All of the main characters are lovely, but god they need to get their shit together, and you can't help but feel a bit more content about your own circumstances.

  7. The episode length. Only 28 minutes per episode means that you can watch a season (or two) in a night and not feel like a total zombie the next day.

Overall, I freaking love this show. If you're feeling a bit lost and need something new to get stuck into, I'd definitely recommend it. 


PS. Even if you don't want to watch the show, have a listen to this playlist and you might change your mind.
