Girls Returns with Season 3 in 'Excellent Shape,' Says PEOPLE's TV Critic

It's not clear whether HBO's Girls will ever achieve the perfection of its first season: You can't expect lightning to hit the same spot twice, whether in nature or the hipster hothouse of Brooklyn, N.Y. But Lena Dunham's contemporary comedy of manners – following the lives of four young women in a world of sex, ambition and artisanal coffee – returned Sunday night in excellent shape.

This was just a few days after a viral controversy erupted: A critic at the Television Critics Association's conference asked if Dunham really needed to be nude so often on the show. This in turn was interpreted as asking why someone with a body like Dunham's needed to be nude so often. It could be interpreted as implying the further question of why someone with a body like Dunham's should be naked instead of someone with a body like costar Allison Williams's.
