Season 3 of Lena Dunham's critically-loved HBO series "Girls" premiered on Sunday (Jan. 12), but if you missed it because you were watching the 71st Golden Globe Awards, your DVR "forgot" to record it, you don't have HBO (or a friend with HBO GO login information), or you can't wait for next week to see episode 2, then we've got some great news for you.

HBO has put the first two episodes of "Girls" Season 3 online ... for free. And even better, you don't have to go hunting down to find links to the episodes -- we've got them right here for you.

And so, without further ado, watch the first two episodes of the recently-renewed "Girls" Season 3 below:
