HBO has provided only the first five episodes of season 4 of writer-actress Lena Dunham's Girls,
premiering Sunday at 9 p.m. ET – otherwise known as the time when the Golden Globes are airing on
NBC – but so far the show is biting, funny, touching and surprising.
In short, it's an absolute delight, and possibly even better than the landmark first season. That's the one that ended with Elijah (Andrew Rannells) greeting Marnie (Allison Williams) with this putdown of her dress: "Hello, J-Lo from the Grammys."
Of course, Dunham, who stars as desperately ambitious Brooklyn writer Hannah Horvath, has in the past shown an almost willful tendency to let go of the leash and allow the show to bolt off and run away like an undisciplined Labrador pup.

NBC's telecast of Peter Pan Live! Thursday was a communal experience on social media – and nowhere was that more evident than on Twitter, where a whole subset of viewers shared their instantaneous reviews.

Anyone hoping for another NBC musical hate-watch were probably disappointed by Peter Pan Live! Thursday night.
It wasn't perfect by any means – switching between live singing and all those filmed ads killed just about any theatrical energy and flow well before the three hours were up – but the production was colorful and glitch-free.
Allison Williams of Girls made a much more committed Peter than Carrie Underwood did a Maria von Trapp in last year's endless Sound of Music Live!, and Christopher Walken's extremely peculiar Captain Hook was a triumph.

When Allison Williams first posted a picture of herself as Peter Pan on her Instagram account, she quickly got a lesson on how naive people were about the character's storied history.

[YOUTUBE "kB8y4Zp9UNc"] Has a stint in Iowa finally made Hannah a happy, well-adjusted person?
Since this is the world of Girls, it looks like the answer is no – but some time in the Midwest apparently does have its perks for Lena Dunham's perennially struggling character, according to the newly released trailer for the fourth season of the hit HBO show.
