Girls: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Girls: Season 1 (2012)




Critic Consensus: Insightful and well-cast, Girls captures the experience of contemporary twentysomething womanhood with a bristling wit that's alternately hilarious and effectively squirm-inducing.

Critic Reviews for Girls: Season 1

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (24)

Instead of glitz, Girls finds humour in the seamier stuff: bad sex, bad bosses, abortions, STDs and, along the way, relationships and self-worth.

One of the things that impresses about Dunham, both the actress and the writer, is how hard she is on herself: There are no forgiving winks or charming bouts of rom-com clumsiness.

It's just as funny, smart and authentic as we'd hoped.

Certainly won't be for everybody, but thanks to its demo, setting and sensibility, it's already captured the attention of the New York Times intelligentsia, which in HBO terms qualifies as a victory all its own.

It's a distinctive, signature series from a decidedly singular voice.

As creator, director and star of this new HBO sitcom, Dunham is clearly a talent to be reckoned with.

Audience Reviews for Girls: Season 1

The characters are not exactly likable nor relatable, but it's random and real enough to have me hooked.
