HBO‘s Girls flew a little under the radar this past season. What was once one of the most talked-about shows on the air has just become another component of the larger television tapestry. By this point, HBO subscribers, HBO Now users, and people who use their parents’ HBO Go accounts know whether or not the frequently humiliating and brutally honest misadventures of Lena Dunham‘s Hannah Horvath are for them. The think pieces have slowed to a trickle.
But Girls will be Girls and it’s still perfectly good at doing what it does. It’s going to keep going as long as Dunham and her team have embarrassing and uncomfortably personal stories to recreate on screen. The first footage from season 5 has arrived and once again, Dunham showcases a shamelessness/fearlessness that is genuinely admirable.
You can watch the Girls season 5 teaser below.

“The plan is… there is no plan.” That’s Adam’s approach for dealing with Hannah’s move to Iowa in the latest Girls Season 4 trailer, but really it could be a tagline for the whole damn show. Though to be fair, even when these girls (and boys) do make plans, they have a way of going awry.
Case in point: Marnie’s decision to devote herself with music is going south as her partner proves less than committed, while Hannah’s choice to move to Iowa is throwing all of her relationships into disarray. Watch the new Girls Season 4 trailer after the jump. Read More »
