I'll admit that I wasn't sure whether I liked Lena Dunham's HBO series, Girls, at first, but by the end of the freshman season, I was hooked. I got a peek at the first few episodes of season two, which starts Jan. 13, and it's even better than the first. Hannah and her gay ex-boyfriend are living together, Jessa is married, Shoshanna is grieving the loss of her virginity, and Marnie is unhappily single. I was cringing at each storyline — but not as much as I was laughing.
