GIRLS: The Complete Fifth Season
Available to own today January 3, 2017
Checkout the fifth season of the Emmy®– and Golden Globe-winning HBO comedy Girls before the final season this Winter . Both starring and created by Lena Dunham and executive produced by Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner, the hit series follows the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their mid-20s—each facing new challenges in life and love.
The Blu-ray and DVD sets both feature a free digital download of all 10 episodes, plus exclusive bonus content including more than two dozen never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes. ( I love the bonus content! It gives you a new appreciation of the show and a different view of the characters and actors.)
As Season 5 begins, Hannah (Lena Dunham) has put her writing ambitions aside and is teaching alongside Fran (JakeLacy), her new boyfriend. Marnie (Allison Williams) realizes that she needs more space after her honeymoon with Desi(Ebon Moss-Bachrach). While working towards becoming a therapist, Jessa (Jemima Kirke) also manages a buddingrelationship. And Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) is thriving at her new job in Japan, flirting with her boss despite her long-distance relationship with Scott (Jason Ritter). Honest and uproarious, with unexpected surprise turns, the fifth season of Girls promises and does maintain the series’ place as one of the most talked-about shows on television. I love it!
Other GIRLS stars include Alex Karpovsky as Ray; Adam Driver as Adam; and Andrew Rannells as Elijah. Returning guest stars for Season 5 of Girls include: Rita Wilson as Marnie’s mother; Peter Scolari (2016 Emmy® Winner, Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his role) and Becky Ann Baker as Hannah’s parents; Jon Glaser as Laird; Gaby Hoffman as Adam’s sister, Caroline; Aidy Bryant as Abigail; and Jason Ritter as Scott. New guest stars this season include: Corey Stoll as Dill; Lucy Liu as Detective Mosedale; and Frank Wood as Oscar.
GIRLS: The Complete Fifth Season is a must have for fans. This is where it all comes together before it ends.
