I found Girls to be written authentically. Lena Dunham is a good writer. I give her credit for coming up with and creating her own show. Unfortunately the reality of Sex in the City today is not what it once was (and that was over rated when SITC was on). She is in a lot of this show. Let's just say Girls is not the type of show to make me resubscribe to HBO. Ms. Dunham states she does not see sex as glamorous and frankly that message is loud in clear. The depictions of sex on that show come off as depressing. So here is its creator and Obama supporter Lena Dunham in a Rule 5.
Update: Instapundit: Ignore Girls at your own peril (following the general advice of the late Andrew Breitbart on paying attention to popular culture). That is not encouraging you to support the show, just to be aware of it and what it represents.
How to explain this show: Think of Girls as Sex in the City reverse cultural evolution...
