Girls Season 2HBO’s critically acclaimed comedy Girls won two Golden Globe awards in 2012, for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.

The latter was for actress and show creator Lena Dunham (This Is 40), who plays Hannah Horvath, one of a group of twentysomethings living in New York. In this second season, Hannah is seeing a new guy but feels responsible for her ex, who’s recovering from the accident that ended season 1.

Meanwhile, recently single Marnie (Allison Williams, TV’s The Mindy Project) needs the support of her best friend and former roommate, but their distance seems bigger than ever. Jessa (Jemima Kirke, Tiny Furniture) returns from her honeymoon ready to plant new ideas in Hannah’s head. And newly experienced Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet, TV’s Mad Men) struggles to navigate a shaky relationship with Ray.
