I wanted to not like you. Probably because I was jealous that you already have your own show on HBO that you get to act in, produce, and write, with Judd Apatow EP-ing. Therefore, I was really hoping that “Girls” was not going to be funny, entertaining, or well written, because then I could have a reason to not like you.
Really, I was just being silly, because as soon as I watched an episode, I pretty much fell in love.
Not only is your show all of those things above, but, being a young white girl from the suburbs who moved to a big city and is trying to make it in a cut-throat industry, I found it completely relatable.
Props to you for casting an extremely talented group of somewhat-unknown actors, who, yourself included, knock it out of the park every episode. Props to you for being completely comfortable in your skin (I know, it’s been said a lot, but it’s cool). And biggest props to you for creating your own projects, telling your story, and getting it out there.
So really, you’re awesome, Lena Dunham. Thanks for being inspiring.
