Well, that took long enough! After two whole seasons of Girls, we have the first official satire of the HBO show: Bros. Created by, well, bros, the online series follows former frat guys living in Manhattan — in other words, the exact opposite tale of Hannah and her quirky friends.

The episode goes on to poke fun at all sorts of Brookyn (and Lena Dunham) stereotypes — think PBR, beards, LCD Soundsystem, and more. We have to admit we have a few laughs out of the whole thing, but the show is much more enjoyable if you actually tolerate frat bros; otherwise, it comes off as slightly insensitive to our eastern borough friends. That said, this episode is the first of many, so we have high hopes for more witty banter. (Animal)
