HBO's Girls - TV Review
This show was nominated for all kinds of Emmys, Best Comedy among them. Ahem. Picture getting a big jar of Harry Potter's jelly beans and finding 80% of them are vomit-flavored. Is it worth it to keep eating for those 20% that are yummy?
Lena Dunham is the writer/director/creator/star, and she does have a natural self-deprecating style. She has some clever lines in there. It's also full of that chic "edgy" style humor which means you never know know when you're going to get smacked in the face with something disgusting. Not worth it. Glad it was shut out. I'm appalled this was nominated over shows like Community, Parks & Recreation, The Middle, etc.
