There are two pretty interesting things happening in television this weekend. On Saturday night at 8:00pm on ABC the first 3 parts of "Titanic" the mini-series written by Julian Fellowes premieres (the last part of the series will air on Sunday at 9:00pm). The creator of "Downton Abbey" explores the tragedy of the sinking of the Titanic with a similar perespective to the series and explores the events as they unfolded for all passengers and crew of the ship despite their class. If I wasn't so sick about hearing about the Titanic, I would be very interested in this, but since I love his writing I might also be willing to give it a try.
On Sunday night at 10:30pm, HBO is airing the series premiere of "Girls," the new comedy created, starring, and written by 25 year old Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture). The show is about four young women in their 20s living in New York, but it's not supposed to be traditional fair. "Girls" aims to show the lives of these girls in a gritty and realistic manner - and if the fact that it's in a slot right after Eastbound and Down, and the fact that Judd Apatow's is involved is any indication, i'm guessing it's pretty no-holds-barred. I hope HBO has another winner on its hands. I know that I will certainly be tuning in to see.
