HBO Women

Despite my affection for my home network of CBS, I must admit that HBO has a lot going on.  Here are three women from two of HBO's blockbuster shows.

From "Girls," Zosia Mamet, who plays Shoshanna Shapiro

Also from "Girls," Allison Williams, who plays Marnie Michaels

 From "Game of Thrones," Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen

I don't watch "Girls," but I do watch "Game of Thrones."  That's why I can make the following insider reference:

That's a dragon egg.  Because in "Game of Thrones," Daenerys is the "Mother of Dragons," a young woman who finds herself struggling in New York City without financial help from her parents.  Daenerys and her friends try to figure out careers and love with the help of the three dragons she hatched from ancient eggs purchased at the Brooklyn Flea Market.

(P.S. to HBO: I have great ideas for shows that are daringly new yet comfortingly familiar.  Call me!)
