Girls is a lot of things. Controversial, timely, smart and, most importantly, hysterical. If you didn’t laugh during episode 1.07 (Welcome to Bushwick/The Crackcident), you probably don’t have a soul. Although some critics think Girls is only about whinny white girls in Brooklyn, they’re missing the heart of the show. Lena Dunham (creator/writer/character Hannah Horvath) is just trying to shine a light on her life experiences and make us laugh while doing it. It’s not like Curb Your Enthusiasm could connect to all of America either.
Despite how silly the critics may view Girls, Dunham is throwing out some pretty great life lessons. Now that season one’s finale aired yesterday, we can look back on the sage wisdom that is Girls.
