Love ‘Girls’ or loathe ‘Girls,’ the HBO comedy’s new Season 3 trailer offers a lot to laugh at. And more to cringe at.
A lot of people love Girls and cannot wait for the HBO comedy-drama-cringefestival to return for its third season. A lot of people loathe Girls and resent the fact that its portrayal of wayward twentysomethings as devised by 27-year-old Lena Dunham has been branded the voice of a generation. Some people don’t know what Girls is.
All groups—love, hate, clueless—can, however, find things to be delighted by in the first trailer for the show’s new season. Girls exists in a strange pop-culture space, where incessant buzz meets incessant backlash, creating a discord that breeds that incessant conversation about the show and what it means to like, despise, appreciate, criticize, or, the big one, relate to it.
