Album: Girls: The Complete First Season, For retail & rental (Warner)

A post-recession riposte to Sex and the City, Girls is a painfully believable comedy-drama about four young women in Brooklyn who learn that a middle-class background is no defence against unpaid internships and dead-end relationships.

It's ironic that a series about aimless, feckless twentysomethings should have been written and directed with such acuity by its twentysomething star (Lena Dunham).
