The reviews are in! ...
"The characters are flawed and hyper-aware of their flaws, the stories so bent on covering every angle of self-examination that there is no real role for the viewer to play. Which makes watching it an intellectual rather than emotional experience." - Los Angeles Times
"As it turns out, Girls is not really about girls at all – a species uniformly presented as neurotic sex toys or psycho man-eaters. It's about guys. And the guys in Girls are even less appetizing than the women who love and despise them." - New York Post
"Twenty years ago, Dunham and her friends would have been working in coffee shops in some boho college town. The word "slacker" would have gotten kicked around, and they all would have had bands. (Plus boyfriends who pretend to be Steve Albini.) Ten years ago, they would have been DJs or bloggers with podcasts. (Plus boyfriends who pretend to be James Murphy.) But in 2012, these ladies have no aspirations, not even the insanely pretentious and unrealistic kind. They don't daydream about being famous or rich. They're not working on any kind of dream at all." - Rolling Stone (from a generall positive review)
