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.

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.

Girls is an exceptional piece of American art, as witty as The Women, richer in raunch than Portnoy's Complaint, charismatic like Sleater-Kinney.

Girls is a triumph for Lena Dunham.

Better, smarter and more honest than your average sitcom, but also perhaps focused on a rather narrow slice of the 20s universe.

Succeeds in making viewers uncomfortable while proferring a new (sharp, slightly bitter) flavor of introspective female comedy.

April 15, 2012 | Full Review…

Ties the grimaces and grins together with a comedic sensibility that allows you to see these characters as they are with all their irritating and contradictory behavior, but still root for them as they feel their way into adulthood.

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.
