‘Boys’ is a Great Parody of HBO’s ‘Girls’

Peter Moses and Frank Cappello’s parody of HBO’s Girls is kind of brilliant on several levels, perhaps that’s why it’s even earned the stamp of approval from Girls co-creator Judd Apatow who tweeted, “That made me laugh a few times. It got me.”

On the surface this would be funny as is, but the notion that Moses and Cappello have taken it one step further and “cast” the sons of Wolf Blitzer (Bear), Pat Benatar (Patrick), John Patrick Shanley (John Patrick Shanley, Jr.), and Daniel Craig (Craig), in this as a comment on Girls’ supposed nepotism is a brilliant meta-joke.
