Girls: Four Reasons Why Season 4 Might Be the Best Yet

Originally posted 01/10/2015 05:30AM

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.

Fans have to wait until Jan. 11 for the return of HBO hit Girls, but PEOPLE has an exclusive unaired clip from last year's season to tide them over!

Cut from the season three premiere, the above scene finds Hannah (a.k.a lead-writer-creator Lena Dunham) and boyfriend Adam (Adam Driver) waiting for ditz-with-a-heart-of-gold Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) to pick up Jessa (Jemima Kirke) from rehab.
