Tv Season Info

Another series, another roommate for Hannah (Lena Dunham), who begins No. 3 living with Adam (Adam Driver) now that they're a couple again. Unfortunately for these two, romantic bliss always seems just a bit out of reach, especially when they get a surprise visit from his unhinged sister (Gaby Hoffmann) on the night of Hannah's 25th birthday party, and aspiring actor Adam's upcoming Broadway debut in George Bernard Shaw's Major Barbara devours most of his time and attention. Meanwhile, Hannah's new job at GQ isn't the writing gig she thought it would be; Jessa (Jemima Kirke) doesn't make many friends in her new surroundings; Marnie (Allison Williams) moves into her own place and starts a fling with an unlikely partner; Ray (Alex Karpovsky) puts his imprint on a new coffee shop; and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) unloads on her friends at a beach-house getaway in Long Island. Guest stars include Andrew Rannells, Patti LuPone, John Cameron Mitchell, June Squibb and Louise Lasser.

Girls is back, and it's just as messy, funny and offbeat as ever.

The writing is particularly sharp here.

It's not Rainbow Brite and ponies, but it's as if Dunham hit her creative reset button, fixed her hair, and started looking at how these characters would begin to mature - with the exception of Shoshanna, who remains a chatty accessory to it all.

Girls has come a long way: It's the sharpest show out there about the self-justifications of the self-obsessed and the immense power even of decaying friendships. That's the price Girls paid for beating the haters at their own game: It learned to hate.

Like Hannah herself, it no longer feels like it's trying quite so hard to experience edgy things just for the sake of material, so that both its shocks and its missteps come across as earned.

There's... a chance that Girls, like Hannah, has found its voice and that it doesn't speak for "a generation" or anything quite so presumptuous, that it merely speaks for itself. Still, I hope it's still occasionally plucky enough to try.
