Loving Right Now: All About the Girls!

For the past few weeks I have been watching two shows:

The first show is Girls, a HBO Original Production, shown on Sky Atlantic in the UK.

(L-R) Marnie, Jessa, Hannah, Shoshanna

It's basically about 4 20something girls living in Brooklyn, NYC and how they muddle through life.
It is dare I say, the poor girl's Sex and the City. The sex is there, as are the dysfunctional relationships and comedic situations. But lacking are the sexy, power jobs with a wardrobe to match..... and I like that. I think this show relates to a lot of girls in the Western World - the perils of dating, the perils of relationships, the perils of obtaining that dream career while interning for nothing. The characters have flaws; I'm sure that watching the show you would be able to identify with some of the personality quirks and issues that the girls have, whether in yourself or in people around you. The show is very realistic and it has received positive reviews around.
My favourite character is Shoshanna - she talks too fast, but she's so innocent! I think there's a lot of potential for her character.

Some Girls

Another show which has just finished its first season is a British Production called Some Girls, which is shown on BBC3 in the UK.

(L-R) Amber, Saz, Viva, Holli

It's about 4 school girls who aren't particularly cool - Viva the 'do-gooder', Amber the 'air-head sex bunny', Holli the 'gangster' and Saz the 'often ignored maths swot'. They are friends and in the girls football team. The episodes consist of typical teenage problems such as bullying, losing one's virginity, family, trying to be cool etc....

Quite frankly,this show is just hilarious! Every episode has had me in stitches; I really hope that BBC3 commission a new series. It's as funny as Channel 4's show called PhoneShop (UK production). Amber and Holli are the funniest characters - they may not be the smartest in the group, but they are adventurous (to put it mildly!) and ultimately they are good people. I can definately relate to Viva - she's a goody two shoes, with high ambitions but at the same time she wants to be exciting and can't help liking a 'bad boy' (oh, memories!)

Both shoes shows have been a hit with me and I look forward to future series x


  1. I'm pretty obsessed with Girls, cannot wait for the second season to start, it is just SO good!

  3. I LOVE Girls. Such a funny and well-written show. Shoshanna is my favorite, she's so cute. I really like that the other girls allow her to be her innocent self, too. I would like to see Some Girls, is it available online? I don't live in the UK but still want to see.
