Girls has quickly become my new favorite show and outlet for my social angst. However, after concluding the first two seasons I asked myself, is this really that funny? The show is filled with social interactions and mental issues that make me question if this show is more of a statement on girls of our generation than a show for entertainment purposes. I am particularly intrigued by Lena Dunham’s character. She is hilarious, yet wildly insecure and constantly in relationships that broadcast these insecurities. I think this depiction is more frustrating than humorous many times in the show. Hannah is a smart and talented writer, and her inability to appreciate her self-worth is frustrating to me in many points throughout the show. Marnie is another fascinating character. She is the classic (b word) and annoyingly uses her beauty as an excuse for her horrible behavior at times. Of course, this is funny from the comfort of my couch, but this depiction of a female is quite insulting and at times makes my blood boil! Although this show is extremely funny, there is really nothing funny about characters like Hannah and Marnie at times in the show. This social commentary is fascinating and creative but one definitely needs to be prepared and open to it.
