Girls (HBO)
Has anyone watched the premier for this show? The pilot aired on the 15 of April. The producer and creator Lena Dunham also plays the major role of Hannah. I think the tFS "Buzz" section covered it.

The pilot was interesting and I think I wanna keep watching it...apart from the nasty anal sex scene.

You guys can can watch the Pilot on tv-link.eu

It was better than Tiny Furniture, Lena's movie who also starred and written, but not as good as the hype would suggest. Yeah, and that anal scene was ten times worse on TF..I hope she won't repeat that again! We've seen it too much already!
But I'll definitely keep watching, hoping it will slightly improve..

I was pretty disappointed with the premiere.

It was horrifying to watch a 24 year old woman throw a tantrum about her parents cutting her off. I understand feeling panicked about money. But to expect your parents to fund your lifestyle after 2 years of graduation? That's just pathetic. The show pretty much played to all the stereotypes that baby boomers have placed on the up coming generation. I'm going to watch next week, since the events of premiere gives the main character the opportunity to pull herself up by her boot straps. But she needs to lose that sense of entitlement and have a major attitude readjustment.

I guite liked the pilot. It's basically a chick version of "How To Make It In America", but maybe that's why it's good. I think Lena is wildly talented, so i'm trusting her to give this show an unique and interesting spin. Can't wait for the next episodes.

I've read a few reviews on this over the past couple of days and I'm really intrigued. A few people have said it gets better after episode one (as do most if not all television series) so those who didn't like the pilot might still enjoy the series as it progresses.

Just finished watching the 2nd episode. I practically hate all of them. They're all rather pathetic. Hannah seems to do a lot of waiting and doesn't know how to make things happen. Shoshanna is a stereoypical nerd. Jessa annoys me with her "indifferent" hipster coolness.
Marnie is very likeable though. She's ambitious, direct and strikes me as the only one who knows what she's doing or how to do things. And she's prettiest.

Also, the setting comes off as kinda fake. Is this an accurate portrayal of student life/early working life in New York? It doesn't seem to be.

In the first, his head looks SO not proportional to the rest of his body. Was I the only one that got that?
The episode was rather okay, but the pilot was far more interesting.
