So I watched the pilot of Girls last night, a new HBO original series. This was weird viewing experience for me, it was like watching my friends on TV…the ‘girls’ were just average girls. It was refreshing to watch normal looking people on TV, instead of the usual stick thin girls who spend 5 hours a day at the gym and only consume lettuce and diet coke so they can maintain their ‘naturally skinny physique’.

This is the kind of show I can see becoming a cult classic like Freaks and Geeks, hopefully it will hang around a little longer though.
