Storyline

She hopes that internship at a small publishing house will lead to the publication of her memoirs, which she is currently writing but which she needs to "live" first. She lives off an allowance from her college professor parents, Tad and Loreen Horvath. Hannah's parents make a trip from Michigan to visit Hannah, but their trip is really to tell her that they are cutting her off financially, which means she either has to find a paying job or turn that internship into a paying one. As she usually does, she turns to her "friend", Adam, for emotional support. Adam is an aspiring actor who generally treats her poorly as he never returns her text messages, but gets out of her what he wants.

Hannah Horvath: Do you know that part on your resume where they ask if you have any special skills? Well, it's the thing where they ask you to list like, 'yoga, Spanish, water skiing, Photoshop.' I feel like I don't I have any special skills.

Girls

Girls; being critically acclaimed and buzzed at Golden Globes for its originality, is a passion project of the creator and the lead actor, Lena Dunham whose creativity and genuine soul is what keeps the series flow frictionless. The series is shot beautifully and the camera work is utterly pleasing which helps seek attention of the viewers. The writing is strong, witty and brutally honest sometimes, which can be inedible for viewers especially for it resonates eerily with reality that we all reside in. The characters or even the actors aren't given priority especially not at the compromise of the storyline which is what makes it different from one's usual sitcom. Addition to that, the series can afford and does offer a wider range where each notes connects and hits to the audience; from humor to intense drama.

Season 01

Each character has evolved in this season satisfying the viewers but has also kept a lot under their sleeve to keep them hungry for more. The season mainly focuses on the love track of protagonist and various episodes of the side characters where things are merely building up for future which seems quite exciting and believe it or not chaotic too.

Pilot

Despite of being an introductory episode, it has much more to offer on terms of character's insight, development and characteristics, all wrapped up within 30 minutes that achieves its closure and encircles the start-up line satisfactorily.
