Girls vs. Boys on Girls 

Did you catch the premiere of Lena Dunham's new HBO series Girls last night?

The show has been generally praised by critics for presenting a candid, wry look at the lives of twenty-something urban women struggling to figure out their lives, both professionally and romantically. In case you missed it, HBO has kindly made the first episode available on YouTube; and after you've finished, check out a discussion of reactions to the show from the women of DoubleX. (Or, if you must, the men of Slate.)
