Before the highly-anticipated final season kicks off this winter, check out the “spectacular” (Vulture) fifth season of the Emmy®- and Golden Globe-winning HBO comedy Girls. Starring and created by Lena Dunham and executive produced by Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner, the hit series follows the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their mid-20s—each facing new challenges in life and love. GIRLS: The Complete Fifth Season will be available on Blu-rayTM and DVD January 3rd, 2017. The Blu-rayTM and DVD sets both feature a free digital download of all 10 episodes, plus exclusive bonus content including more than two dozen never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes.
As Season 5 begins, Hannah (Lena Dunham) has put her writing ambitions aside and is teaching alongside Fran (Jake Lacy), her new boyfriend. Marnie (Allison Williams) realizes that she needs more space after her honeymoon with Desi (Ebon Moss-Bachrach). While working towards becoming a therapist, Jessa (Jemima Kirke) also manages a budding relationship. And Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) is thriving at her new job in Japan, flirting with her boss despite her long-distance relationship with Scott (Jason Ritter). Honest and uproarious, with unexpected surprise turns, the fifth season of Girls promises to maintain the series’ place as one of the most talked-about shows on television.
Other GIRLS stars include Alex Karpovsky as Ray; Adam Driver as Adam; and Andrew Rannells as Elijah. Returning guest stars for Season 5 of Girls include: Rita Wilson as Marnie’s mother; Peter Scolari (2016 Emmy® Winner, Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his role) and Becky Ann Baker as Hannah’s parents; Jon Glaser as Laird; Gaby Hoffman as Adam’s sister, Caroline; Aidy Bryant as Abigail; and Jason Ritter as Scott. New guest stars this season include: Corey Stoll as Dill; Lucy Liu as Detective Mosedale; and Frank Wood as Oscar.
Girls is a fun series that follows a group of women as they try to make it through their twenties. This is a time of life where there are a lot of changes. People start careers, and meet their future spouses. The four girls in this series go through relate-able issues while they build their lives, and they do it with both laughter and touching moments. One dreams of being a writer, one is trying to be a therapist, and one is adjusting to marriage. Together, they make up a group that is easy to get attached to and always fun to watch.
Even though I am coming into this series late, I still really enjoyed it. I like the bond between the girls and how they stand by each other, Boyfriends may come and go, but their friendship can survive anything. We all need a group of friends like this. If you'd like to grab a copy of this DVD set. it is available in stores nationwide and online at Amazon.
