David Bianculli on the second season of Girls, which premieres on January 13:
Girls, without question, has the definite aroma of both honesty and originality. The four main characters — aspiring writer Hannah, art curator Marnie, free spirit Jessa, repressed spirit Shoshanna — have problems holding onto jobs, maintaining their intimate relationships, and even staying close to one another. The breakups are messy, but so are the less dramatic times. Sex, in this series, usually gets down to equal parts passion and awkwardness — which makes it seem all the more real, and, like the emotions displayed throughout, all the more raw.
Today, we also rebroadcast our May interview with Lena Dunham. You can listen to that here.
