Girls: The Complete First Season
Girls: The Complete First Season

The ubiquitous Lena Dunham and her very-much-discussed HBO series, Girls, returns to television tonight at 9 Eastern, and that means a good drinking game would come in handy. Below are some rules to drink by — and of course, feel free to add your own.

1 drink

Any time Twitter, Tumblr, or Facebook is mentioned.

1 drink

Any time 20-somethings, “being in your 20s,” or anything related to age/”this time in my life” is mentioned.

1 drink

Any time Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) makes a pop-culture reference.

1 drink

Any time Hannah (Dunham) is eating her feelings.

1 drink

If Adam (Adam Driver) is shirtless.

1 drink

If Hannah talks about her writing.

1 drink

If someone hooks up with an ex.

1 drink

If Taylor Swift or Drake is mentioned or played.

1 drink

If you recognize a New York location.

1 drink

Any time Jessa (Jemima Kirke) hooks up with someone.

2 drinks

Any time Lena Dunham is naked.

1 shot

If someone other than Lena Dunham is naked.

1 shot

Any time one of the girls is having or discussing an unfulfilling sexual experience.

2 drinks

If something is happening onscreen that you relate to and you’re ashamed of it.

2 drinks

Any time Donald Glover is on screen. (Some background, if you’re unaware: people were pissed about the lack of women of color, of people of color generally, in season one of Girls. Dunham has cast Donald Glover, star of Community and horrible rapper, to be a recurring guest star in season two. Early reports suggest…well, I don’t want to spoil anything for you, but Glover will be appearing in the premiere).

If Thought Catalog is mentioned. TC mark
