Season 5 of HBO’s “Girls”, is out on DVD. This show can be maddening and intriguing, often in the same episode. The “girls” are four of the most self-centered, immature, selfish, narcissistic, yeah-but-what-about-me-Me-ME people on TV. They are terrible friends, terrible lovers, and terrible at being employed. Not only should these insufferable women not be friends with each other, it is difficult to see how any of them would have any friends at all. Ok . . . so all that aside . . . the show has a strangely magnetic quality. The “girls” routinely make bad choices and behave poorly, but you still want them to somehow find a small measure of happiness. Keeping an audience when the lead characters are so contemptible is not an easy maneuver to pull off in TV-World. But Lena Dunham, the driving force behind “Girls”, mostly achieves it. In addition to portraying Hannah on the show, she is an executive producer and she writes and directs many of the episodes. She has the unflinching courage and determination to tell the story she wants to tell, warts and all. Maybe this honesty is what I like about “Girls”. No fairy tale, no happily ever after endings here, just the stories of deeply flawed people trying to figure out what to do with their lives.
