In the season finale of HBO's "Girls," Hannah and Marnie go forward with their "break-up," while Adam gets serious. Meanwhile, Jessa throws a very important impromptu party, much to the displeasure of Shoshanna.
Girls directly reflects the culture watching the show: a generation flailing in their personal lives due to their own inaction, but that is eager to discuss all of the things they are not actually doing.
We lived through a golden age of drama; maybe the golden age of comedy is next. Perhaps we'll see a return to comedy, the kind Ms. Dunham currently writes in Girls. Perhaps she isn't the voice of "a generation" so much as she's the first voice of the next generation.
Sunday, April 15 is a momentous day on the calendar this year. Not because of taxes. Not because we appear to be trembling on the precipice of spring. Because a program called GIRLS premieres on HBO that night.
