I spent my teenage years obsessed with the programme Sex and the City! I grew up watching Carrie Bradshaw and the girls live an extravagant lifestyle in Manhattan; sipping cocktails, shoe shopping, dealing with man after man whilst keeping together an awesome high powered job. I would think to myself ‘That’s the life I want’ … Unfortunately, I grew up, moved to the capital and realised that life is a bitch, and only a few lucky people get to live those extravagant lifestyles, and they’re called the Kardashian’s. Whilst I still love to indulge in a SATC marathon every now and then, there is new female comedy on our screens, one us confused and broke twenty-something girls can honestly relate to. And if you’ve no idea what I’m talking about and haven’t heard of the Emmy® award-winning show GIRLS, where have you been??
Powerful, intelligent and absolutely hilarious, GIRLS is the latest comedy from HBO that everyone has been talking about. It’s become a huge phenomenon, mainly because Hannah (Lena Dunham), the leading lady, has become worshipped by women everywhere. The show follows the 24-year-old Brooklyn based aspiring writer, as she is cut off financially from her parents and thrown into the real world. Hannah struggles to afford Pancakes, let alone Prada, as she is forced to put aside her dreams, leave her unpaid internship and find a job that actually pays. Her friends, Marnie (Alison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Shosanna (Zosia Mamet) all have their own problems of being urban dwellers post-college, from relationship problems to career troubles.
In a word, it’s Awesome! So I’m pleased to announce that GIRLS: The Complete First Season, is out on DVD, Blu-ray and Download from the 4th of February *Applauds* And to celebrate this fantastic release, I’ve teamed up with HBO to offer one lucky AllAboutTink subscriber their own copy of the GIRLS Season 1 boxset to own. Meaning you can spend as much time with Hannah as you want, Jealous!
