Season Three of “Girls” arrives with a bang tonight on HBO, as the show returns tonight with back to back new episodes. From the descriptions of the new episodes, Hannah and her friends seem to finally growing up. Of course this is “Girls” so don’t expect this new found maturity to last very long. The two episodes tonight are titled “Females Only” and “Truth or Dare”. Here’s what HBO is saying about the “Girls” season three premiere event.
“Females Only” – 10pm
Hannah and Adam host a dinner at their apartment; Marnie is still upset about her breakup with Charlie; Shoshanna alternates between nights of sexual freedom and academia.
“Truth or Dare” – 1030pm
Hannah, Shoshanna and Adam take a road trip; Marnie moves into her own place; Hannah seeks inspiration to meet her editor’s deadline.
The first episode features a dinner party thrown by Hannah and Adam. While I hope that it goes well, those two seem like the worst type of people to host a party. Have the tables turned now between Hannah and Marni? Hannah is now in a committed relationship (with the creepiest guy in Brooklyn), while Marni is rejected and alone. Shoshanna trying out her “sexual freedom” is already funny.
The second episode sounds just as troubling as the dinner party. A road trip with Hannah and Adam? Make sure to get your own motel room on that drive. Anything could send this drive towards disaster. All it would take is Hannah poking fun at one of Adam’s music choices, and trip ruined.
Will the massive success of “Girls” inhibit the stories of season three? Does HBO have its eye on syndication like “Sex and the City”? Tune in tonight to see if Hannah and her friends have lost any of their well deserved edge.
