What was your favourite part of the Girls trailer? The inclusion of Ellie Goulding’s “Anything Could Happen”, Rita Wilson or Hannah’s yellow mesh tank top?
“We love the show for inspiring people to move to New York City and become the ‘voice of a generation,’ as Hannah would say,” Mayor Bloomberg said, quoting Dunham’s character, Hannah Horvath, a 23-year-old aspiring memoirist who believes her struggles are emblematic of her peers.
The mayor — who had a cameo in the “Sex and the City” movie that ended up on the cutting-room floor — has his SAG card ready if Dunham can work him into a script.
“They need only whistle and we’d show,” said Deputy Mayor Howard Wolfson, adding that “Girls” fever has swept City Hall.
“We’re obsessed,” Wolfson said. “It’s the big water-cooler topic of conversation Monday morning in the bullpen.”
For the high-level City Hall staffers who share their work space with Hizzoner, the week starts off with a “vigorous debate and discussion about the show,” Wolfson explained.
As much as I am eagerly awaiting tonight’s season finale of Girls, I am also dreading its absence from my television schedule this summer. This show has really gone far and beyond my initial expectations and has resonated with me in a way that very few television programmes do. I think that Lena Dunham is a force to be reckoned with and I can’t wait to see how this season concludes. That is all.
“I seriously consider television to be the people’s medium. Like the idea of seeing your parents naked or having somebody go down on you and worrying about whether you smell or worrying about whether your body is weird or what goes across the face of a person who’s supposed to be experiencing pleasure but isn’t — those are things I’d love to normalize on TV.”

I love Girls, but I don’t love that it reminded me of this song’s existence and forced me to listen to it a million times in the past week.

“Chastity, sweetheart, would you show Hannah how to break down a freaking box?”
I relate to a lot of aspects of Girls, but perhaps nothing has rang more true to me than watching Hannah try and fail to break down a box. When I interned at a PR company earlier this year, boxes were the bane of my existence and I believe that all box-related tasks existed solely to showcase my ineptitude as an office employee. If I was ever asked to put a box together, it would take me half an hour to do so and it would still be barely functional. A toddler entrusted with a roll of duct tape and the most rudimentary sense of what a box is would probably have done a better job than me. (Prospective employers: I’m just kidding! I love boxes! Give me money!)
Anyway, this has been a post about how I still love Girls and hate boxes.
