The first episode of Girls was a success in my opinion. We see Hannah starting to grow up but the episode was still hilarious. I also mentioned how I’m a much bigger fan of the show when Lena Dunham is directing. To my dismay the entire month of March will feature episodes not directed by Lena Dunham. Don’t worry Lena, I don’t blame you for this because my message was way too late. And this is no knock on Jesse Peretz or Richard Shepard. I’ve just always liked Lena Dunham directed episodes better.
In any event, a new press release is out that gives details on Girls episodes 6.04-6.07 which will all air in March. Here’s the full release from HBO and enjoy the show!
