GIRLS begins on HBO main image

Yesterday saw the 1st episode of HBO's new gritty comedy GIRLS. GIRLS, created by and starring Lena Dunham, is a comic look at the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their early 20s. The show, set in New York and follows the 4 friends, but don't be fooled this is no Sex and the City.

GIRLS has had plenty of media attention in the last few weeks, with some even hailing Dunham as the voice of her generation. Dunham has received praise for re-dressing the balance and giving an honest portrayal of young women in the media.

“It's the outrageous new HBO show that makes Sex and the City look like a Doris Day film” (The Guardian)

What about a little something to wet your appitite? Check out this teaser.

And if you want a little more, check-out this recap for episode 1.

In the US Girls airs, Sunday's 10.30pm ET on HBO and will be coming to the UK sometime this year courtesy of Sky Atlantic. Girls will add to Sky Atlantic's impresive list of HBO series, including Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones and Mildred Pierce.
