Lena Dunham Season 3

HBO

If You Hate HBO's 'Girls', You're Missing the Point

Girls, which just began its third season, is often criticized for indulging privileged people's problems. But the show actually critiques first-world entitlement. Girls creator Lena Dunham doesn't endorse her characters' behaviour or ask us to feel sympathy for them; she wants their personalities to expose our own weaknesses.
