“Girls”: Irritating Or Addictive Or Both?

It’s that unavoidable TV series that your younger friends, especially the women, watch religiously. It’s back, and here’s a review: ‘It’s easy to characterize the range of opinion regarding “Girls” in generational terms, but like a good deal of the coverage devoted to the show, that’s simplistic. There are peers who find Lena Dunham’s ode to twentysomething angst irritating, and elders who think it’s profound. What it clearly isn’t doing, based on season three’s opening salvo, is progressing much – yielding interesting moments, but also a sense of monotony. Indeed, even for admirers of this HBO series – which pays dividends to the network in media buzz well beyond its ratings – it’s difficult to think of a program less suited to binge viewing.’
