We don't have cable television in our house. We're okay with it. It saves money, we don't spend evenings in front of a History Channel marathon on crayons or something similar and I hate Comcast. If there was a way for me to get wi-fi in my house without using Comcast I would. I definitely don't want to give them more money for cable.
Until now. This morning in my 5 minutes that I watch The Today Show, Brian Williams' daughter, Allison Williams, was giving an interview about her new HBO series, Girls. She's absolutely gorgeous, has an amazing voice and a beautiful personality (not to mention awesome dad) so I was intrigued to do more research. PS - did you know she also graduated from Yale? She's also written and acted in some Funny or Die skits.

I need this. I need this show in my TV Sunday nights. Not sold yet - Judd Apatow is an Executive Producer. The lead female actress, Lena Dunham, is also the Executive Producer, Director and Writer. She doesn't look a day over 25 (She'll actually be 26 next month). There is no way she's that accomplished and her she is with a show on HBO. I looked at her IMDB page and I don't recognize a single thing she's been in.
I need a friend with HBO to set up a weekly date with me, at their house, so I can watch this show. It looks like it's only been shot for 6 episodes, that's not too much to ask, right?
