You guys! It’s the trailer for Girls, premiering on HBO on April 15! Which is too bad: if you identify with the main character in any small way, you probably can’t afford HBO, either! Ha, ha!
I personally identify with “stop the bike!” and immediately pitching forward off some dude’s handlebars. There is no reason to ride up Chicago Avenue at 2:30 a.m. on a stranger’s handlebars, no sirree.
Depressingly, the Judd Apatow-produced comedy is about “being 24,” which is an age I barely remember (at 24 I worked in an cubicle and sometimes slept under my desk, thank you). In fact, I don’t think I really hit the “odyssey years” wall until I was at least 27. Hmm. I wonder how many 40-year olds will identify with the women in this show instead. Hmm.
The show stars 24-year-old writer/actress Lena Dunham as “Hannah”; Dunham is making the big leap from various web series to actual TV. Oh, she’s also made a movie, I guess.
Aren’t you thrilled? Doesn’t the trailer look terrific?
Or are you bored? Does the trailer instead look irritating in a distinctly self-aggrandizing, miserable Williamsburg way? Let me know in the comments!
