The Series Philosopher

Philosophising about the 'S'-word: Watch… and learn


the series philosopher Girls wikiGirls is an American television series that premiered on HBO on April 15, 2012. Created by and starring Lena Dunham, Girls is a comedy-drama following a close group of twenty-somethings living in New York City. The show’s premise and major aspects of the main character were inspired by some of 27-year-old Dunham’s real-life experiences.

Aspiring writer Hannah (Lena Dunham) gets a shock when her parents visit from East Lansing, Michigan, and announce they will no longer financially support her as they have done since her graduation from Oberlin College two years before. Left to her own devices in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, she and her friends navigate their twenties, “one mistake at a time.”Allison Williams (as Hannah’s best friend Marnie Marie Michaels), Jemima Kirke (as Bohemian and an unpredictable world-traveler Jessa Johansson), Zosia Mamet (as Jessa’s bubbly and innocent American cousin Shoshanna Shapiro) and Adam Driver (as Adam Sackler, Hannah’s aloof lover) co-star as Hannah’s circle of friends.
