Girls, girls, girls

HBO Girls

One of the most relatable shows I have watched lately is without a doubt HBO’s Girls. This show depicts the live of four twenty something girls living in New York who are trying to find their place in the world and make sense of their lives. When reading this, you would instantly think it is a new version of Sex and the City, but nothing could be more contrary. There is no glamour in the lives of Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Soshanna, no walk-in closets filled with designer dresses or Manolo Blahniks, no fancy dinners, successful careers and also no Mr. Big. No, in Girls it is all about difficult friendships and boyfriends, very awkward sex, being broke, drugs, being insecure about yourself, sexual diseases, unpaid internships or having no job at all. I like this show because it is so real and being a twenty five year old myself, I am sure many girls my age can relate to these girls and what they have been through.

It is definitely worth a watch, even though I must admit I like the first season better than the second one.  Three other reasons why you should watch Girls:

1. The soundtrack. In every episode there is at least one song you will most likely enjoy listening to. Think: Fleet Foxes, Belle & Sebastian and Santigold.

2. Adam Driver, who plays the main character Hannah’s (Lena Dunham) strange and most of the time shirtless boyfriend is pret-tay awesome.

3. Even Vogue thinks Girls is Great. They met up with the cast of Girls and created the video below, which might increase you’re curiosity towards the show.
