Enlightened had a 75 score on metacritic, not even near that 90 from girls, the critics really seems to like it.
A tv show with a bunch of hot chicks + hbo (sex) = success.

This pilot was quite fantastic to say the least. It's branded as a comedy, so if it turns out to be a big enough hit, I'm sure it'll snag a nod or so, probably in writing or directing, but big nominations, nonetheless.
The pilot was something special. It's very self-conscious, but it works. It's like the female answer to Louie.
I thought the exact same thing, but didn't care very much for it. It's trying to be like C.K.'s show (in terms of creative control, means of produtcion and more intimate style), only without the surrealism and raw sincerity that show has.
What bothered me is how every scene in the pilot didn't seem to come from some natural progression of the plot or from the character development. It's like each scene was supposed to work independently in order to prove some kind of point about female identity, and that level of self-consciousness on a pilot can really turn me off. They don't over do it,but it's there, and it feels more writing set out on a theme than a character study, at least for me, and that's not what I thought the show was gonna be, as subtle as they try to be about it.
I also felt the jokes fell flat, and that the more dramatic stuff was too obvious and lightweight to actually be interesting and enganging, at least at this point in the season run. I'll give it a few extra episodes, but so far, this feels overhyped (the pilot at least).
But who knows? I didn't really like the "Louie" pilot, and now that's one of my favorite comedies ever.
This was fantastic. Some seriously great writing. Can't wait for the next episode. For some reason I'm especially looking forward to that storyline of Hannah's roomate and her boyfriend. "His touch feels like a weird uncle" I really liked that scene where he asks her what would turn her on the most , and she'd say: "What if you were a stranger, like a totally different person and you did't act like you".
I assumed that the girl from Mad Men had a bigger part and was part of the group of main characters, but I guess we'll see what they do with her.
And if you wanna make sense
Whatcha looking at me for?
