Girls

Girls; being critically acclaimed and buzzed at Golden Globes for its originality, is a passion project of the creator and the lead actor, Lena Dunham whose creativity and genuine soul is what keeps this character driven series flow frictionless. The series is shot beautifully and the camera work is utterly pleasing which helps seek attention of the viewers. The writing is strong, witty and brutally honest sometimes, which can be inedible for viewers especially for it resonates eerily with reality that we all reside in. The characters or even the actors aren't given priority especially not at the compromise of the story-line which is what makes it different from one's usual sitcom. Addition to that, the series can afford and does offer a wider range where each notes connects and hits to the audience; from humor to intense drama. It is rich on technical aspects like sound department, costume design and editing. It is no short on execution as it communicates with the viewers and offers a palpable environment, that is cozy, raw, bold and uneven, in short an apt depiction of the current generation's social life.

Season 02

This season is more character driven than the previous one, which is frankly saying a lot, for the major part of the time is spent upon the justifying twists and turns and actions occurring, that sometime can be a downer as it chews off properly to blend in and sometimes elevates it into much more mature concept that neither is the audience ready for it and nor is the maker.

I Get Ideas

It's first half is mostly spent upon the usual dilemmas and consequences of the tragic decisions that the characters have made, the real scrutiny begins in the second half, where the highlight is Lena's argumentative conversation with Donald Glover and Adam Driver.
