The Sex Lives of College Girls (HBO Max) -- Comedy series co-created by Mindy Kaling -- 11/18/21






No rules, no regrets. The best years of their lives are about to begin. Created by Emmy®-nominated writer/producer Mindy Kaling and Justin Noble, the series follows four college roommates, Kimberly (Pauline Chalamet), Bela (Amrit Kaur), Leighton (Renee Rapp) and Whitney (Alya Chanelle Scott) at New England’s prestigious Essex College.




10 episode season and it's being burned off over 4 weeks. But, it's a streaming series, so I suppose it doesn't matter. Premieres next Thursday.

Looks amusing and I think Mindy is a good comedy writer. I think this could be an easy binge watch.

Why do I get the feeling that this will be everything BUT the sex life of college girls?

Bring back Skinemax and Co-Ed Confidential, I tells ya!

The second episode is titled "Naked Party", I'll get around to checking it out unless someone says it isn't worth my time.

Random college students nudity. Two of the principals (Indian gal and prude gal) have full butt shots as they undressed when they enter the party dorm. Partial boob if you look quickly.

I watched the first two episodes that are up and thought they were pretty funny. Mindy is a great writer and between this and her Netflix show, Never Have I Ever, she has two of the funnier shows on right now. The two Indian leads on those shows are hilarious.

Worth noting, the first episode is directed by David Gordon Green.

I watched the first episode tonight and I really liked it. That boyfriend was a real piece of shit. I saw the ending coming from a mile away though.

This show has its moments. It's got some funny moments and it's a coming of age story as well. It explores a lot of topics about growing up as a woman in this world and it doesn't feel like they are trying to be PC. I like it. I think Bella is the personification of Mindy Kaling and that's a good thing.

Despite my snarky comment from a few weeks ago, I might give this a chance anyway. I'm actually totally fine with a college-aged comedy even if the skin and sex is minimal. Just hate when the title is more salacious than the content. I mean, who does Mindy Kaling think she is? Roger Corman?

I'm really enjoying the show - all the women are great and hilarious. I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

I tried the first episode with my wife but it seemed pretty predictable and did not appeal to us. Might give it another shot down the line as sometimes you need to be in the mood for some shows...

This finished up last night and I really liked the first season as a whole. I especially liked that, rather than have the women deal with some elaborate drawn-out shenanigans, they confronted or admitted what they'd done and then moved on with the consequences. I found it really refreshing. And all of the girls really came into their characters - making them fun, funny, relatable and believable as friends.

Looking forward to Season 2!

This is a really good show. I thought it was particularly strong how no one of the four girls was pushed out as a de facto lead, and all the storylines were balanced. Takes about 6 hours to get through all 10 episodes, so it is an easy binge. I judge a lot of these shows by how much I want to just keep going with the next episode, and I watched this all in two sittings over two days.

Kimberly (Pauline Chalamet) is Timothee's sister.

It took me a bit to warm up to it, but I liked the characters and storylines and would watch a season 2. I once read that Bridesmaids was written by women, so it had more sex than actual nudity, and that holds here as well. No nudity other than background characters. But that’s ok, as it wouldn’t really have added anything. And it’s kind of refreshing that
Spoiler:
generally the characters decide to do the right thing.

It’s a new trimester for the suitemates – Kimberly, Bela, Whitney, and Leighton – which means the girls have to navigate new experiences and challenges. From creators Mindy Kaling and Justin Noble, season 2 returns November 17 with more college chaos, wild parties, messy relationships, and of course the new hot guys on campus.

I liked the first season, didn't think it would catch on enough for a second season.

I'm looking forward to the new season. Alyah Chanelle Scott is on Reboot on Hulu. I didn't recognize her at all on Reboot. It's going to be interesting not having Nico on this season since he was a pretty big part of last season.
