It takes a couple of episodes to get into but once you get into its rhythm you’ll have to agree that Girls is one of the better shows on television today. Not from your typical cookie cutter mould, Girls and its creator Lena Dunham is a different kind of animal. It tries to paint an accurate picture of the twentysomething generation from a female perspective. Filled with a variety of young, educated women living in New York City, the show centers around the love affairs in their lives but in a refreshingly honest kind of way. One thing that the show does very well is examine relationships between females and all the intricacies involved.
