A Sneak Peek at ‘Girls’

For those of us who consider Lena Dunham’s “Girls” the latest necessary TV addiction — don’t deny it, this includes you — the release of a trailer (below) four months before the next episode is nothing but a tease. A cruel, mocking tease that we’ll nevertheless indulge in for the sake of seeing something — anything — that gives us a clue as to what’s coming up in the second season.

The last episode of Season 1, which was nominated for five Emmys, certainly left us hanging: Hannah was mugged and stranded on Coney Island; Marnie wants to ditch her perfectionist attitude and makes out with a chubby stranger; Jess just got married; and our resident JAP Shoshanna is — drumroll please — about to lose her virginity.

Unfortunately, we don’t get much out of this 32-second-long clip, which mostly showcases close-ups of the four main characters. The most exciting second is 0:09 — are Hannah and Marnie, supposed ex-besties, sitting next to each other? — but otherwise, a few seconds of facial expressions is only enough to make us want to see more. Which, I suppose, is the intention the girls behind Girls had all along.
