The Washington Post has compiled a list of entertainment opportunities now available:

TOP PICK

“Girls: The Complete First Season,” on DVD and Blu-ray

This HBO series from writer-director-star Lena Dunham follows the angst, drama and comedy in the lives of four post-college 20-something women living in New York.

The series has received high marks from critics, including The Post’s Hank Stuever, who said that although it’s not “easygoing TV,” the show is an “intelligent, if microcosmic, depiction of a very certain sliver of life as it’s currently being experienced by four young, educated, white females.

Like Mike Nichols’ ’The Graduate,’ (Woody) Allen’s ’Annie Hall’ and Richard Linklater’s ’Slacker,’ ‘Girls’ has potential to become a once-in-a-generation work that helps define a shared era.”
