    And since the show is autobiographical, it gives some hope that the main character will GROW THE EFF UP!! :D

    The writing on this show is a little too hip and full of itself...it detracts from the believability. There are moments of humor, but nothing that makes me truly laugh. Ultimately the worst offense to me is that the characters are all just not likable.

    I'm out.

    Man, there was almost more totally awkward sex on this recent episode than I could handle. I almost quit not far in to this episode, but I think I'm going to keep watching. I feel like I do need to know how these characters develop, assuming they do. If they don't begin to evolve soon, however, I might be out.

    You're a glutton for punishment.

    I had a Girls marathon today and watched the entire first season. I enjoyed it very much. I found the characters to be very relatable (I'm 29). I either know someone like them or I am somewhat like them.

    I like that they don't hold back on the sex stuff. Some of those scenes were pretty shocking and real.

    I'm very impressed that Lena Dunham writes, produces, directs and stars in it. For such a young woman, she really has her hands full and has done a wonderful job.

    The first few episodes of Girls were not as funny. I liked them well enough to keep watching, but the show got MUCH funnier later on, IMO.

    Same with Veep... I enjoyed the second half or so of the season much more than the first. JLD is an amazing comedienne.
