Lena Dunham returns for the third, highly anticipated season of her Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning comedy series Girls. Following the misadventures of a group of 20-something friends in NYC, the series centers on Hannah Horvath (Dunham) and her mess of anxieties, insecurities, and uncertainty as she approaches her mid-20s.
In Season 3, Hannah is now in a committed relationship with Adam (Adam Driver), and the two are settling into a newfound domesticity in Hannah's apartment. Hannah is also working on rehabilitating her writing career and concentrating on delivering her eBook to her eccentric publisher. Meanwhile, Marnie (Allison Williams) is adjusting to life after a sudden and traumatic breakup with Charlie and meticulously working to achieve the life she feels she deserves. Nearing graduation, newly single Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) masterminds a plan to create a healthy (at least on paper) balance between partying and her studies. And, continuing her streak of disrupting the lives of those around her, Jessa (Jemima Kirke) resurfaces and strikes up an ambiguous friendship with a flamboyant father figure. Over this season's 12 episodes, the friendships between the girls are more volatile than ever, proving that female friendship is its own kind of romance. As always, love, life, sex and death can all interrupt the circuitous path to adulthood - and will arrive when you're least prepared.
Guests this season include Richard E. Grant (Doctor Who) as Jessa's rehab friend Jasper; Rita Wilson (The Good Wife) as Marnie's mom Evie; John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) as Hannah's editor/publisher David; Gaby Hoffmann (You Can Count on Me) as Adam's sister Caroline; and others.

I am not a girl, this show isn't just for girls. This show is for everyone. I have watched this since the first episode aired, my girlfriend and I watch it together and we both enjoy it. People complain about the girls on the show being rich, white elitists, I don't see it that way. In fact Lena Dunham's character is usually pretty poor, having to ask her parents for money. And the rich girls on this show are kind of sad, and I think that's the point. You probably don't want to be any of these girls, you may not even want to be friends with any of them. But I'd certainly like to hang out with them because I do enjoy watching their lives unfold/fall apart. This show is essentially about the human condition, and how hard it can be to balance friendships and relationships with a partner or your parents or even coworkers. While I may not be thrilled with Hannah's choices throughout this season and especially the season finale, it fits her character and makes for great television. This...
Yes, this series is a very hip look at twenty something year old girls in New York. But it is actually a much deeper character driven piece about their lives. When I was their age everything centered around Manhattan. Now the young and stylish flock to Brooklyn, which provides a vivid backdrop for these stories. And though I am no longer a twenty five year old, and not a woman, this show, for me, gives a brilliant insight into the mind of one. The third season finds Hannah (brilliantly played and sometimes written by Lenah Dunham) living in domestic bliss with her intense boyfriend Adam. Their relationship is strained by the arrival of Adam's even crazier sister, Caroline. Hannah's career takes a turn when her publisher suddenly dies, leaving her e-book project in limbo and tied up in contract. She goes to work for GQ where another unique group comes into play. Her once best friend Marnie (Allison Williams) struggles with a seemingly final break-up with Charlie. She often falls flat...
I love Girls because it's a show that pushes the limits of tv shows airing nowadays. The writing is perfection down to every sarcastic, rude and hilarious comment. The acting is brilliant and the characters are so different from everyone else in the show it's accurate. This season didn't have much darkness towards it which is what I liked about the first two seasons but every episode was gold in its own way. The story line is very relevant to how it is out there to many people close to the characters' age, their passions, the struggles, love and hate, selfishness, lust, desperation, loath and despair. We all look for something to hang on, we try to achieve greatness in everything or fail at life in the process. Our relationships with our friends and lovers surrounds us when we are trying to find ourselves and that's what Girls is all about. The humor is to die for and if you're looking for some Gossip Girl drama, sorry but this ain't for you.
