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.
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.
A common post-workout look, the messy bun is rarely found at formal affairs. Obviously, the Dallas Buyers Club actor – who won for best supporting actor – is willing to take risks with his long locks, and the Globes is an ideal place to pick up hairstyling tips from the hottest stars.
