'Girls' (HBO)

This critics' darling -- writer-producer-star Lena Dunham's intimate, frank and endearingly funny look at the missteps and miseries of artsy young New Yorkers -- premiered early enough to land three Emmy nominations, so we're betting it also shows up at the Globes. But not everyone is bowled over.<br><br>

<b>Assessment:</b> "This show seemed to promise an unvarnished look at young women on their own, but all they talked about was their boyfriends. I found that limiting and irritating," McNamara says. "The performances were good, but the women didn't interest me at the end of the day."
