    Sex & the Gritty: Lena Dunham's 'Girls' Pilot is Coarse, Sensitive, and Promising

    The most compelling aspect of Lena Dunham's HBO series "Girls" is a tone and spirit that balances sincerity and satire. When the goofy protagonist Hannah (Dunham) proclaims in the first scene that she is "busy trying to become who I am," the series arrives with a strong, clear voice.
