It's been billed as this generation's answer to Sex and the City, but it's safe to say GIRLS is a more realistic look inside the lives of twentysomething women. Set in New York (where else?!), Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna awkwardly navigate their way around those precious but horrific moments in life that we all have — but might not always talk about. While we continue to wonder how Carrie can afford all those Manolo Blahniks, the lead character in GIRLS, Hannah, confronts the little issue of feeding herself and paying her rent after her parents decide to stop giving her money. The show covers all the fun stuff (insert sarcasm here) that we ladies deal with day-to-day in our late teens and early twenties — like our virginity, STDs, boy dramas, money problems, jobs problems (I could go on forever here!) — but it's written in a way that you'll not only relate to, but laugh out loud at as well. Written and directed by Lena Dunham, who also plays the character of Hannah, check out HBO's video featuring Lena in conversation with the show's executive producer, Judd Apatow (Bridesmaids).
GIRLS premieres in Australia on FOXTEL's showcase channel tonight at 8:30 p.m. — and as an added bonus, it's a double episode!
