I have to admit when I heard about the new HBO produced comedy Girls, it did not register as a show that I would be interested in watching. I decided to give it a go when I learned from this article that Steven Soderbergh watches it. I was also happy to see that Jud Apatow is a co-producer of the series. It is essentially the brain child of Lena Dunham, who apparently made and directed the film Tiny Furniture, which is on my to-see list. The series is quirky, and mostly funny. The cast is generally very good, and I'm surprised on how good the writing can be. Perhaps, too much of Dunham naked or undressed. It kind of reminds me of Louie, because it sometimes inhabits dark places and has lots of awkward sex. I think it is one of the better comedies out there.
