Storyline

New York City based Hannah has been working at an unpaid internship since she graduated two years ago from college with an English degree. She hopes that internship at a small publishing house will lead to the publication of her memoirs, which she is currently writing but which she needs to "live" first. She lives off an allowance from her college professor parents, Tad and Loreen Horvath. Hannah's parents make a trip from Michigan to visit Hannah, but their trip is really to tell her that they are cutting her off financially, which means she either has to find a paying job or turn that internship into a paying one. As she usually does, she turns to her "friend", Adam, for emotional support. Adam is an aspiring actor who generally treats her poorly as he never returns her text messages, but gets out of her what he wants.

Quotes

Hannah Horvath: Do you know that part on your resume where they ask if you have any special skills? Well, it's the thing where they ask you to list like, 'yoga, Spanish, water skiing, Photoshop.' I feel like I don't I have any special skills.

Challenges faced by 20-somethings in the city
6 September 2012 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

I heard about Girls last spring, but I never got around to watching it until now because I thought it would be about a bunch of well-to-do 20- somethings in NYC. Let's be honest. We already have Gossip Girl for that. When I finally got around to watching it, I was pleasantly surprised that it was a more down-to-earth portrayal of young women trying to make it in Brooklyn.

Unlike a previous poster who said that this show does not reflect reality, I am a 25-year-old woman trying to make it in NY, and I find that many scenes are similar to the real lives of my cohorts and I. Yes, some of my friends were being supported by their parents after college and have just recently been cut-off. Yes, it is hard to find a job in your field. So, you start taking any paying job without trying to sacrifice your dignity. As for relationships, there are a lot of weirdos out there.

Overall, I think this show is meant to be shocking and more real-to-life than many other shows about girls in NYC, and it achieves its purpose.
