Girls is an American television series that began airing on HBO on April 15, 2012. Created by and starring Lena Dunham, Girls is a dramedy that follows a close group of twenty-somethings as they chart their lives in New York City. The show's premise and major aspects of the main character were inspired by some of 26-year-old Dunham's real-life experiences.

Aspiring writer Hannah gets a shock when her parents visit from Michigan and announce they will no longer financially support her as they have done since her college graduation two years prior. Left to her own devices in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, she and her friends navigate their twenties, "one mistake at a time."[2] Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet and Adam Driver co-star as Hannah's circle of friends.

Pilot

Written and directed by: Lena Dunham

Hannah, an aspiring writer, is stunned when her parents announce on a visit to New York that they are cutting her off financially. They've been supporting her for the two years since she graduated from liberal arts college, and she needs one "final push" in order to realize her full potential as a writer.

Meanwhile, Hannah's roommate and best friend Marnie seemingly has it all together, with a very adult job at an art gallery and a long-term boyfriend. But she's beginning to question whether Charlie, who appears to be the perfect guy, is actually perfect for her. She's also worried about being able to pay the rent now that Hannah's been cut off, and urges Hannah to demand that her internship at the literary magazine be turned into a paying job.

When Hannah approaches her boss with her request, she's let go rather than given what she wants. She seeks solace from Adam, the triple threat actor-writer-woodworker with whom she sleeps - at least when he decides to answer her texts. She apparently takes comfort in his dirty talk and critical comments about her body, because she ends up staying way too late and misses the start of the dinner party she and Marnie are throwing to welcome their friend Jessa back to town.

Jessa, their free-spirited, beautiful, British friend, is just returning from her latest travels abroad (nannying in France, shucking pearls in Bali) and moving in with her younger cousin Shoshanna, a naïve NYU student with ‘Sex and the City' dreams. Hannah and Marnie are throwing Jessa a welcome home dinner, though with Hannah off in Adam-land and Jessa late to her own party, Marnie is stuck entertaining only Charlie, his friend Ray and the girl he met that morning who's not really into eating this week.

When Hannah finally makes it home, she drinks some of the opium tea that Ray brews up (it's legal, like flowers) and decides to confront her parents before they return to Michigan. Jessa advises her that she just needs to explain once and for all that she is an artist, while Marnie reasons that she simply needs to ask them for a little more support until she finds a job. As Hannah, who has declared that she just may be the voice of her generation, is forcing her parents to read the pages of her memoir at the foot of their hotel bed, the opium tea kicks in. She ends up half-passed out on the floor as her parents argue over their decision to cut her off.

Back at the dinner party, Marnie and Jessa disagree about how to deal with Hannah. Jessa finds Marnie uptight and mothering, while Marnie finds Jessa too carefree, even careless - at which point Jessa reveals that she is pregnant, and probably not on purpose.

epi 2# Vagina panic

Written and directed by: Lena Dunham

Hannah and Adam engage in some awkward role-play during sex, but what really worries her is learning the next morning that Adam doesn't usually use condoms. Her lifelong fear of HIV prompts her to do a little Googling and ultimately get an STD test.

Meanwhile, it's becoming clear to Marnie that the root of her boredom with Charlie is that he's simply too nice to her, which Hannah has a hard time accepting.

Over some frozen yogurt, Shoshanna tries to interest Jessa and Hannah in the book 'Listen Ladies.' It proffers some rules on sex and dating that adventurous Jessa is not interested in hearing, particularly in the hours leading up to her abortion.

Hannah goes to a promising job interview that turns ugly when she makes an inappropriate joke about her potential employer, and Jessa drowns her uneasiness about her pending abortion in a local bar. When a cute, unsuspecting hipster wanders in looking to use the phone, Jessa finds the perfect distraction. They wind up fooling around in the bar bathroom, where they discover to their mutual surprise that she is not pregnant after all.

Meanwhile, Marnie, Shoshanna and Hannah wait at the OBGYN for Jessa, who is now very late for her appointment. Hannah undergoes an STD exam and wonders out loud to the doctor whether she might actually want AIDS, since then everyone would finally stop asking if she'd found a job. Out in the waiting room, still waiting for Jessa, Shoshanna reveals to Marnie that she's a virgin.
