SNL, Tina Fey Spoof HBO’s Girls

By Jacob Klein on Sep 30, 2013 to Girls


Everyone loves HBO’s Girls, right?  Well NBC’s Saturday Night Live took a few jabs at the 20-something sensation this weekend.  There’s so much to talk about so I’ll just give you the video straight away:

Some of those impressions were spot on! Great mannerisms and totally accurate. That voice! So perfect. But some of the commentary? I’d say some of the writers on SNL may have only seen the pilot episode or have heard about the show second hand. The skit ends up being hilarious if only for the suburb portrayals of the Girls. Maybe they’re more making fun of 20-something girls in general than they are the show itself.

What did you think? And are you a fan of Girls? Was the SNL skit hilarious, lame or dead on? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.

It looks like Ms. Dunham took the skit in stride. Here she is enjoying the SNL piece:

I thought it was spot on. It summed up the show perfectly and, of course, Tina Fey as Blerta was hilarious.

Thought it was completely accurate! My favorite part was when “Lena” was telling “Adam” that everyone knows she’s too good for him and “Blerta” immediately tells her otherwise. I relate. =]

It captured my feelings about GIRLS pretty damn well.

As a millenial I don’t think the show is 100% serious when it comes to portraying the problems of 20 somethings. I doubt Lena Dunham agrees with the way her character is acting as she throws a tantrum or asks her parents for more money. I think it’s at least partly a caricature of our generation showing the good and the bad and the sort of funny.

Bottom line: I think you’re supposed to feel the way you do about the GIRLS, Jef!

“I don’t think the show is 100% serious when it comes to portraying the problems of 20 somethings.”

Yeah, the part where none of the characters have any actual problems (other than being incredibly self-centered) kinda gives that away.

what “problems” do you have when you are a 20 something?? my problem was not being able to hold a job and not finding a good drug dealer….
