‘Girls’ is probably what Nina and Sam’s lives were before the appeal of crystals and Ayahuasca took them to LA.
‘Sex and The City’ is the show that paved the way for positive representations of female sexuality on TV.
If Carrie and Samantha were in their twenties in 2016, they would probably succumb to all the strange and hilarious trends Nina and Sam explore.

This series is hilarious and resolutely modern.
Mindy Lahiri is a New York-based OB/GYN obsessed with pop culture, fashion and finding love. The show not only shines a light on a successful woman of colour, but on a confident woman comfortable in her own body.
