Watch This: Trailer for HBO’s ‘Girls’

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!

  • Your picture looks very young… not to call you a liar, just sayin.

    I’m almost 23 and that’s me… living off pilfered internet and food that I get leftover from my job at a restaurant. Not the relationships though. I don’t know if I can stand to watch a show about a girl who looks like she doesn’t value herself.

    • I have this thing about how I’ll be 30 in a few months and children mock me all the time anyway. I don’t think it’s that I look young; I think it’s because they can actually tell I’m 30.

      Maaaan, even children can see that I’m fundamentally, emotionally arrested in some intangible, indescribable way, and something about me commands zero respect, so these street hooligans who aren’t wearing their coats in wintertime are like, “Oh, there goes a grown woman who can’t pay her bills, let’s follow her and yell,” and then I yell back and make a scene and ugh just keep pre-teens and teenagers away from me, they’re awful.

      Anyway, yes, I’m old and I still pilfer food and have no idea what love is or how to value people etc etc. *cries miserably*

      Maybe I shouldn’t watch this tv show after all.

  • I think the trailer looks great, I’m totally excited to see this show (for free online since, you’re right, HBO is waaaay out of budget). I’m so ready for Judd Apatow to be doing TV again. Perhaps this will have some better longevity with the awesome liberties that come with being on HBO as opposed to network TV.
    Did you notice the mom from Freaks and Geeks is the mom here too? Judd Apatow is great for having his supporting players show up in his other stuff.
    I fully expect this will be enjoyable and will hopefully break the Apatow curse of being canceled after one season!
