The quartet of ladies, who seem to be experiencing an adult coming of age, will once again share stories of their ever evolving lives in season two of the show.
If you're not up to speed with the series, it's not too late to take in the ten episodes of season one.
On the two disc set, viewers can not only indulge in each 30 minute installment, but there are a host of special features as well.
Series creator, writer, star and some time director, Lena Dunham, introduces each episode with a two to three minute explanation of the theme of that episode in a segment called "Inside the Episode."
Dunham does a complete commentary on the pilot and is joined by series producer Judd Apatow on episode six, entitled "The Return." Apatow, who co-wrote the episode, talks about his role in the production of the show. They talk very specifically about Apatow's input on this particular storyline, what was cut in the final edit of the episode and why. And, true to Apatow's form, there are some moments in the commentary when he gives a bit TMI.
The two producers also divulge why they think the show works on HBO, what Dunham learned in season one and what they don't want to steal or copy from "The Sopranos" or "Mad Men."
Dunham also does commentary on episode seven with Jenni Konner, Executive Producer and co-writer of the episode. They share what got stolen from the set during that episode and who they asked to be on set and then promptly sent home.
Dunham also reveals how she really feels about her dancing ability.
Director Richard Shepard joins Dunham for the commentary on episode nine, "Leave Me Alone". The two talk about what it's like shooting on the streets of New York, a time that Dunham got extremely tongue-tied, and the one day that Dunham cried on set and why.
Episode ten, "She Did," has all four of the ladies are on the commentary track. They discuss how they really feel about threesomes, why Lena is not a lesbian and what Sean 'Diddy' Combs told Lena about the show.
If you really don't have time to watch all of the commentary and just want to quickly catch up before the start of season two, simply watch the "Inside the Episode" featurettes and you'll have plenty of background on the show.
But, truly, all of the behind-the-scenes footage and banter are well worth the time.
