EEK ! “Girls” Ive been watching the American series for all but a few days and I’m already obsessed! It’s a quirky, realistic comedy with added drama. It’s the sort of series that shows you that being young has its struggles but also it’s adventures.
SEX, there’s a lot of it in this show. It’s raw and honest, there’s no Hollywood glamour about it. There’s something I find very fresh about it. I feel shows like this are important to reveal to the teens of today what sex is really like.
Young women are obviously the main characters along with some guys. The series shows an important side to female empowerment through sex. There’s no shyness around imperfect bodies or interesting personalities. Some of the characters are in relationships where as others are fooling around and having fun. Highlighting that women are no longer an object simply for marrying and giving the housekeeping money to. The young girls in this show have freedom and choice, creating a vast array of story lines.
Writing is Hannah’s thing, it’s a kind of journal hobby that becomes a career path. Her style of writing remenisis with me. The kind of characterfull life story writing that I enjoy doing in my spare time. Watching this show and Hannah’s love for writing encouraged me to write this post. I want to make this page more journalesque, give myself the freedom to just write. The show highlights the struggles of writting as a career and in fact acting too.
Speaking of careers, so many people now a days are struggling to find their place in the world , find their career and path. I feel this show really helps me to feel that I am not the only one having difficulty in this weird child/adult stage. Fnding out who you want to be is hard enough when you have to worry about money and bills and career paths all at the same time ! Then there’s boys, friends,parents, mental health and all the other stuff life has to throw at us.
Jessa the bohemian traveller friend the brave, wise one. She uses her experiences to hide insecurities which I feel is something we can learn from. You can’t bury things you have to deal with them, however her sense of and venture is infectious !
Marnie is the total opposite, described as uptight by the others she is oragansied, career minded and in a long-term relationship.
The last of the friends is Shoshana, the virgin , timid , preppy one. I expect there’s more to her character but I am yet to find out.
What I’m trying to say is that “GIRLS” is this open, say it how it is programme which comforts me in those times of young person confusion. It’s worth the watch for sure ! I feel like I’ll have watched all the episodes by next week ! Wish me luck whilst I disappear into duvets and chocolate watching this and forgetting to live my life 👌💕
