statements about Girls
In the spirit of last week I am going to ignore the oppressive limitations of statement making and attempt to only make statements regarding the new tv show Girls which premiered on HBO last night...
The girls of Girls are all caucasian and 24: they are not girls.
They all live in New York.
They can work unpaid interships.
What is real for one may be terribly unreal for the rest.
Parts of Girls are excruciating to watch.
Girls is created, written, and directed by its female star Lena Dunham.
Lena Dunham is a 25 year old female.
She went to a liberal arts college.
Girls makes statements by asking questions.
Girls is not Sex and the City.
Approximately 10-15% of tv programs that go to pilot are written and created by female writers.
Of those many are written by male-female teams.
Huge, Pretty Little Liars, Being Human, The Killing, Rizzoli and Isles, The Big C. These shows and their pilots were written by female writers.
Girls is a terrible title.
Girls is worth watching.
