The development of Driver's character... remains the most fascinating part of the series.

Lena Dunham's much buzzed-about (on both coasts, anyway) serio-comedy returned from its first season a better, stronger and smarter show? well, at least until the disappointing finale.

Overall, I've been pleased with Girls' second season.

I don't think I've come across a character like Lena Dunham's Hannah Horvath on TV before.

Girls isn't consistent or perfect: Sometimes it's distractingly disorganized and frankly, a bit full of itself. Other times, it's euphoric fun.

Sharper, smarter, more richly layered, detailed (and acted), Girls has improved upon its first season.

It's fresh, it's bold, it's uncomfortable at times, and that's as it should be-whether you're living the 20something moment or reflecting on it from a distance.

It takes an enormous amount of talent to make a show about a character this annoying be this watchable, and funny, and touching. Fortunately, Dunham has that kind of talent.

January 13, 2013 Full Review Source: HitFix

Girls is confident in its unsparing themes about young adulthood.

It's enough to tell stories well, Girls may be telling the stories of a bunch of pampered, elitist, self-absorbed individuals, but it does tell these stories very well.

There are some wonderful sequences within it - particularly everything at the party - but there's also a certain breathless quality to it, as Lena Dunham and her collaborators strain to catch up with everybody the first season established.

January 13, 2013 Full Review Source: AV Club

With this series, HBO almost single-handedly redeems all the vapid depictions of 20-something female identity that dominate network sitcoms.

Hannah's confusion remains the heart of the show.

We're kind of split in the TWoP offices, but I really liked this episode (and the following three that HBO sent us).

I think it's going to be a really interesting season and having Elijah in the mix adds some serious entertainment.

It's probably the smartest, funniest, most place-defining, generation-defining, now-defining TV show around.

Dunham has captured, at times with eerie and remarkable specificity, technology's effect on young adults attempting to come of age in the contemporary world.

Girls may not be something you ever want to see if you're not a 20-something-year-old woman living on the edge of disaster at all times. But if it is - and you are, too - you'll be happy to know that it still raw.

Girls insists on yo-yo emotions - I love you, quickly tailed by I hate you - and it gets more burdensome from episode to episode.

The entire constellation of impetuous, ambitious, determined and insecure young urbanites in Girls is realigning in the new season, but at no point in the four episodes sent to critics for review do you feel that any of it is artificial.

I really need to keep up with my recommended dosages. Still haven't gotten my flu shot for the virus that is ravaging the country. And I never drank the Kool-Aid that has made every TV critic in America fall madly, deeply in love with HBO's Girls.

Girls above all is about uncomfortable creatures. That can be a helluva thing to watch at times. But still very see-worthy.

Whatever one may think of Girls, and I do understand the program's detractors, no one can deny the risks that Dunham is willing to take as an actress, producer, director, and writer.

Girls zeroes in on a wafer-thin slice of the twentysomething demographic with such exactness that the show feels analytical, sometimes chilly. That's not a complaint.

Girls is that odd duck that shouldn't be missed, and at times, can barely be watched.

The first episode is a little slow, but the next three are as irreverent, funny and hard edged as any in the first season.

When I see the second season of Girls playing its scene of post-collegiate train wreck in slow motion, I am eager to hurry up and wait.
