I dont have cable. Even though I love watching TV, I mostly get to watch it later through Netflix or Hulu Plus. About a month ago, I acquired my friend’s HBO Go login. So I had heard no hype about the new HBO show Girls (was there even any at all? I’m seriously unaware). Thank goodness my curiosity took the better of me, because I found some major new girl crushes.
The show follows Hannah (played by Lena Dunham who also wrote and directed the show) and her three friends; the free-spirited Jessa (Jemmia Kirke), the semi-uptight, seemingly perfect Marnie (Allison Williams), and hilariously innocent Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet). What I like most about the show is that it seems real to me, and I can connect all the characters to my life situations, or even people I know.
For me, I have two clear favorites (Shoshanna and Jessa!) but really, every girl is totally crush worthy. Hannah’s quirky humor paired with Marnie’s sensable ways makes them the perfect best friend duo.
Do you watch Girls? Who is your fav character?
