Disturbing Show

When Girls first aired on HBO, I was not a fan. It took me months to give it another shot.  Finally watched Sunday's episode.  It's like looking at a train wreck, I just can't help myself.  I find myself pausing the show a lot because it makes me uncomfortable.  Is it too real?  I am sure I know people who used to behave like this.  I remember being pretty confused and doing stupid things when I was in my 20s.  I also remember life as being pretty drama ridden...


  1. The show is pretty weird, and I was definitely taken aback with the first few episodes, but after a while it starts mellowing out and you get used to the quirkiness and it becomes utterly hilarious. Don't take it too seriously, because it definitely doesn't take itself too seriously.

    1. Agreed, the first few episodes have to be a bit extreme to reign you in, but it does mellow. I think it's very realistic.. in your 20s, it's trial by fire for adulthood - worrying about finances, relationship turmoil, realizing you won't die for your friends like you would have in college. With that comes the drama and chaos that you see in Girls.

    2. I find myself getting very embarrassed for the characters...
