This weekend, Lena Dunham spoke with Alec Baldwin for his podcast, “Here's the Thing,” and inadvertently confirmed the show's pick-up.  “We're starting season three at the end of March. I'm so excited,” she said.

As "Girls" heads into its season 2 finale Sunday night, water coolers everywhere are bracing for dull conversations devoid of tips on cotton swab usage and talk of bodily fluids. The modestly rated HBO show, which follows a group of twentysomething friends navigating career and relationship troubles, has been a generator of critical reaction since its debut last spring.  That talk hasn't muffled in its sophomore season -- including in this newsroom: Exhibit A and Exhibit B . And Lena Dunham, the wunderkind behind the show, is sure to keep the conversation going with whatever she has in store for the season 2 swan song.

Though not credited as a remake, "Breaking the Girls" takes the basic premise of "Strangers on a Train," the Patricia Highsmith novel famously adapted to the screen by Alfred Hitchcock - I'll kill for you if you'll kill for me - and transports it to the modern day. Law student Sara (Agnes Bruckner) has had a run of misfortune brought on in no small way by a jealous classmate, costing her a job, a scholarship and a place to live. She also meets the rich, troubled Alex (Madeline Zima), setting in motion a series of events to solve all their problems.
