Should I Be Watching Girls? (An Illustrated Flowchart to Lena Dunham's HBO Comedy-Drama)
From time to time, Zach Fowle will provide a visual guide to every day and extraordinary situations ... and (because he has bad handwriting) Claire Lawton will illustrate them. Welcome to Charted Territory.
Lena Dunham's coming-of-age in New York drama-comedy has made headlines for nudity, drawn criticism for diversity, and posed questions for viewers that range in age, gender, and familiarity with New York.
There are plenty of reasons to love Girls ... and plenty of reasons why you don't want to watch it with your mom or relatively new boyfriend/girlfriend. But for those of you still wondering whether you should be tuning in, we've created a guide.
Check out other Girls-related questions and answers after the jump ...
