Girls: Season 4 - Rotten Tomatoes

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.

Critic Reviews for Girls: Season 4

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.

So much of what gets accomplished here is either place-setting, loose-ends-tying, or reiterating beats we got at the end of season three.

Girls still delivers other memorable moments, though. And not all of them are gag-inducing. Dunham has written some terrific scenes for herself, and she also rises to the occasion of acting them out.

Excellent opener, but sensitive viewers may want to avert their gaze about eight minutes in during a comical/shocking kitchen encounter between Desi and Marnie. Enough said.

The new season of Girls begins in what I think of as the ideal Girls weather: warm with a chance of abhorrent antics.

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.

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.
