100-Word Premiere: Girls

Did I avoid the “white power” / “heritage actresses” Twitter-splosion? No. But the one thing I wasn’t expecting was that Girls would be, well, fairly boring. Documenting Dunham’s semi-autobiographical tale of a life blessed by nepotistic bequeathenment, lead Hannah is equal parts spoiled brat and adorable newborn. But surrounding her with a similarly dislikable second-tier is a mistake, and the show comes off more as an exercise in People You’d Hate To Be Stuck Talking To At A House Party – a crime magnified by its tendency to tumble from non sequiter to occasional zinger without any structure. Wouldn’t bother.
