Girls

I happened to see half of the abortion episode of Girls while I was home alone one night. I think everyone else was at the Rush concert, and I was scared because I got a weird phone call that turned out to be my brother calling accidentally and hanging up.

The episode was good and funny and real and I laughed, and that hasn’t happened for a while. I mean laughing at a TV show, not laughing in general. So I knew I had found my new show.

A few weeks later, I happened to catch the episode about the best party ever in Bushwick. It was also good and funny.

One night when I was sick, I watched the first six episodes alone in my room. They were good and funny. I wondered if my Facebook was going to tell all my friends that I like girls.

Then my mom and brother are all like “we want to watch too” but they never wanted to actually watch it.

Until this weekend. We watched all of the first season. It was good and funny.

I love all four main characters, and I can’t really pick who my favourite is. Shoshanna is clearly the comic relief character, and I always tend to like those ones. I love all of Marnie’s dresses and her hair, and I get her uptightness and responsibilityness. Jessa is like what every Mary Sue wants to be. Hannah says things that I think but that I don’t realize I think.

I love the realness of all the little things. Writing something on Twitter and then deleting it. Stuff like that. All the little awkward things that happen to them that happen to real people.

I felt like the first season finale kind of came out of nowhere, which is what it’s supposed to feel like, but it was still weird, and I don’t know what to expect for the second season. The last few episodes were kind of weird, and I’m afraid the rest of the show isn’t going to be as good.
