The Show That the Affluent, Older-Skewing NPR-Set Loves to Embrace Because It Makes Them Feel Hip Is Back!
Here’s the trailer for season three of HBO’s Girls, a show which I love, because of course I do. In fact, I have come around to the conclusion that Girls appeals to people like me more than it appeals to the demographic it represents. Is that verifiably true? I don’t know, but I do know that the people on the Internet who write about Girls the most are NPR-loving professional writers on Slate or The Daily Beast or The Atlantic, who have their sh*t together and like to write about Girls in sort of dreamy critical way, and that the PTA moms at my kid’s school love Girls because, I guess, it provides a connection to that 20-something life that most of them — in fact, most 20-somethings now — never had.
It also gives us plenty of material to write about, and the Internet love/hate relationship fuels those posts, even though the show itself is seen by less people than watch Friends reruns late at night.
Girls returns in January.
