what is realistic?
9 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know it's only a show, but I am SO tired, bored in fact, with the laziness of writers and producers who, for the sake of entertainment (and advertising dollars)continue mining the same sad, vaguely misogynistic territory where women are laughable, but not funny.

It's like the underlying message is: never mind, woman are just silly, not to be taken seriously. Makes women less of a threat professionally, socially. You can't admire, cheer on, (or fear) women as flat out lost as Hannah and her friends.

Girls is no more realistic (or relate-able) than Sex In The City was - single women in NYC, w/o steady full time employment? Who IS paying their rent? (I am a single woman in NYC. Cheap,it's not)..Both shows take place in a New York City filtered through California goggles:where it's Summertime all year round (again, NOT the NYC I live in!)

There was a more pro-woman HBO series that came close to what I'm trying to say here: "The Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency". At least this was a show where a single woman (overweight and NOT a conventional beauty), who got her emotional grounding from her father,built her own business, bought a house, AND had a boyfriend. Imagine that.
