Girls: Season 4 (2015)
Critic Consensus: Girls is familiar after four seasons, but its convoluted-yet-comical depiction of young women dealing with the real world still manages to impress.
A comedy about twentysomething women navigating their way through life in New York.

Not to say Girls isn't still sharply written and gleefully gauche on occasion - I just wish this portrait of young, metropolitan America wasn't so grim.
If the show's four central relationships are going to devolve, we need new ones to replace them. Judging by how Hannah is faring at Iowa - well, I'm not optimistic.
With all the screeds written about the show, it's easy to forget that Girls is a comedy. An awkward, twisted one, but comedy still. So the laughs came reliably.
It's the most unpredictable the show has been since it started, but that also comes with its own risks. I'm looking forward to seeing what the heck Girls becomes when it transitions into mid-twenties mode.
The space between Hannah's overblown confidence and inner doubt is where her character's most interesting traits are found. It's unfortunate that the show spends so little time there.
Audience Reviews for Girls: Season 4
One of the best aspects of Girls is how true it rings to modern American life, even if only for a particular niche of society--in this case, four 20-something girls trying to figure out the direction of their lives in NYC. Over the past three seasons, we have seen Hannah, Marnie, Jessa, and Shoshanna grow and learn from their experiences, for better or for worse. Lena Dunham has admitted that many aspects of the show are autobiographical in nature, and given the recent criticism surrounding her autobiography, Not That Kind of Girl, this episode of Girls seems to be a spot-on depiction of this?although it was entirely unintentional.
Triggering was written and directed almost a year ago, yet it is impossible to watch without comparing it to Lena?s recent scandal surrounding her autobiography, in which she discusses rape and sexual discovery at a young age. While these topics in particular have nothing to do with the recent episode of Girls, the way Hannah handles the criticism of her writing in the episode is almost methodically paralleled with how Lena handled the controversy surrounding her autobiography.
