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

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.

Apr 15, 2012 | Full Review…

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.

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.

Girls, with its giddy lightness, its warmth, and its fast-talking, witty, roundly likable characters, has some of the flavor of romantic comedy while also revealing the common facts of life...

Get yourself a bullet to bite, here comes the pain.

Dunham uses her characters' anxieties for maximum opportunity, and throws them into situations you'll be glad to not be in yourself.

Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Dunham's own Hannah is a young Carrie Bradshaw for the 21st century comprised, as they so often are, of equal parts ego, foolishness and spite.

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.
