Lena Dunham's tv series Girls is widely known and has been critically acclaimed. It talks about girls, as the title says, but not in a typical way - like many tv series or movies that are just a collection of clichés. Showing part of her real life story, Dunham writes among with other people in some chapters about the life of four girls who have finished college, or are just going to, and that try to find their places in the world.
The protagonist, Hannah (Lena Dunham), is a writer who either the "leader" of the group and the tv series. The good thing about this series is that in every single chapter there's time to laugh and be identified with the situations the girls live. You don't need to be their age to be identified, parents can see their daughters and sons here... and everybody can have fun while watching it because it is just a kind of an "animated with real people" book written by Hannah/Dunham that portrays some of the most common experiences that the young generations live nowadays.
I think the secret of it success can be found in the way all the things are explained, it is a refreshing, good looking comedy. It is not unreal or very exaggerated, it tries to show the now. With that being said I don't want to finish without talking about the gifted and talented Lena Dunham who is creator, writer, producer and director of this tv series and who writes in such an innovative, creative and humorous way that it finally becomes the trademark of this tv series. Dunham is one of those girls who you either love or hate, because of her personality in the tv series (and real life) but I think that the success of this woman lies on this contradiction.
