As Girls prepares to wrap its final season, fans are looking back on all the things they love about the HBO series. But according to Entertainment Weekly: The Show‘s expert panel there’s one thing, in particular, appreciate about the show: creator Lena Dunham herself.

“She represents a whole other culture of women,” MTV’s Girl Code star Jessimae Peluso tells host Lola Ogunnaike. “That zaftig presence is revered in a lot of cultures. [But] not here in the United States, and culture’s rooted in entertainment.”

Search Party actress Meredith Hanger agrees: “That’s what’s crazy to me. It’s literally taboo to be comfortable with yourself.”

That’s a sentiment stand-up comedian Judy Gold also shares as well. “How many fat guys with hot wives are on television?” she asks the panel. “It all started with The Honeymooners.”
