There is not always a happy ending, it does not seem annoyingly unrealistic and the actors actually remain human.
This newly created series entails the catastrophes, humiliations and rare triumphs of four very different twenty-somethings, living in New York City. However, Girls sets itself apart from series, such as Sex and the City or Gossip Girl, as it may be said to display ‘the real shit’. Created by and starring Lena Dunham, a lot of Dunham’s real-life experiences are presented in the series. Due to this, there is not always a happy ending, it does not seem annoyingly unrealistic and the actors actually remain human. The series’ harshness is reflecting our fucked-up generation, and once in a while, may even give the viewer a queasy feeling. At the same time, these bad moments are mixed with humor and sarcasm and make up for the success of this series, which you should definitely consider watching!
