Girls; being critically acclaimed and buzzed at Golden Globes for its originality, is a passion project of the creator and the protagonist, 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. The primary reason why it works for the most part of it, is the uncertainty on its trajectory and the unflinching bold moves that writers tend to make to proves its maturity and superiority on standing on something that is equally practical as much as gut-wrenching. 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. The performance is undeniably effective that helps create the anticipated impact on screen where most of the attention is drawn by Lena Dunham, Adam Driver and Andrew Rannells.

Season 06

Final season, for obvious reasons, comes with a great expectations which it matches in here and doesn't disappoint, by crawling back to its origin form that is to offer concrete material that is fueled with character's perspective and ideology in a subtle way that is layered, though-provoking and gut-wrenching that pours out essential emotions out of the screen through great performance.

Hostage Situation

It is eerily darker than usual which is saying a lot considering the horrific turn that the series made quite earlier, addition to that the characters still has a lot to offer on terms of their perspective, ideology and even their rudimentary behavior.
