Trivia

"Girls" star and creator Lena Dunham was interviewed by The Awl in 2012 about the series during the first season, including her attitude towards clothing... or the lack thereof. "I feel like now I'm going to have to give up my trick of 'oh, let's make this scene funnier by way of pants removal.' It's going to wear thin. I'm going to need to start using it more judiciously," she said at the time. But during the course of the 6 season series she continued to get naked. A lot. Some supported that choice because they felt that was part of her character. Others, including critics, felt it was too much, added nothing to the series, and even grew "tiresome." According to an article by IndieWire, the most notorious instance of this came in 2014, when reporter Tim Molloy questioned Dunham's on-screen nudity at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, asking the creator/star, "I don't get the purpose of all the nudity on the show. By you particularly... your character is often naked at random times for no reason." That led to a confrontation between Molloy and executive producer Judd Apatow over whether Molloy's approach to the question was inappropriate and/or misogynistic. (Molloy's piece on the incident ended with him believing that he wasn't being either of those things, because Molloy's girlfriend said so.) A year earlier, LA Times critic Mary McNamara also lost patience with Dunham's nudity on the show, writing that, "Even the insistence that Hannah/Dunham is heroic in her willingness to expose her haphazardly tattooed and non-swimsuit issue-type body and her neuroses has become tiresome." What's notable there is the fact that McNamara doesn't make a choice as to whether she's critiquing Dunham as a creator or Hannah as a character. It's a blanket statement about both entities.

Just Enjoy It For What It Is
4 May 2012 | by sabrinaadelaniSee all my reviews

I personally LOVE this show. It's incredibly funny and extremely refreshing. It's quirky and almost every dialogue makes me smile like an idiot. The sex is also a lot more realistic than in other shows (Since most of the time sex can awful and unsatisfying, not earth-shattering like they portray on romantic movies and also, not everyone is built like a model.)

I think people need to stop over analyzing the show and enjoy it for what it is; a heartfelt comedy about young women who traverse a complicated world filled with heartbreak and uncertainty with no one to lean on but each other. It's a unique take on an old idea and I will definitely stay tuned for more.
