Watched one episode and it was enough for me. These characters are written poorly, as for the writer the only important thing was to turn them into these liberal, diverse, strong women who live "boldly". There is nothing bold about them.They manage to fail into every stereotype that creates the misconception of what being liberal is, borderline ridiculing it. They are assumed to care about important issues, while every topic dragged on is by now a cliche seen in a Buzzfeed video- oh sorry boldly. It hides between trying to create a sort of image what it is to be a woman in "big world" from a columnist perspective, but it is really a low budget Sex and the city with no charm or logic adapted to 2010's trends.
Bottom line: this show is AMAZING!!! The only show I've ever seen that stays true to feminism, anti-sexism, ethics, and social consciousness. It's so entertaining, and it won't let you down if you love Sex and the City and Gossip Girl. It's still entertaining, funny, and addictive, but without the male gaze and objectification of many other shows like it. Love, love, love, everybody should see this show. They better make a second season!
This. Show. Is. Great. Have to admit I wasn't planning on watching based on the original promos but I'm so glad I have it a chance. Each episode gets better and every character brings something to the table. Writing unlike anything I've seen before and compelling storytelling that makes me want Tuesday to get here ASAP every week.Give it a try!
This show desperately attempts to cover ALL of the bases at once. We have these twenty-something BFF's who all work for the same magazine in one capacity or another and are constantly under the gun from their know it all boss, who despite her gruff exterior is really just a sweetheart. She has the maternal instincts of someone who did a bad job as a mother for her own kids and now can take these three, mostly Jane, though, under her wing and mold them into fine young women who care about everything important all the time. Of course, they care about everything important except when it means that it will in some small way prevent them from getting ahead, getting laid or most of all landing that special someone...their soul mate! The best scenes are in the fashion closet where they can be their shallow selves and offer advice to each other or get it from the mother superior. The dialogue was written by someone who wishes everyone actually talks the way the script is written and acting is just not that good. All of them are attractive physically, but they have the depth of a kiddie pool. There are, of course, attempts at diversity both racially and sexually, but the actors are so very stereotypical that they lack any credibility. What is more interesting is how these young women afford the digs that they live in on their small salaries in a city we are led to believe is New York but is really Montreal. Rents are high there, too! I guess if you want a dose of unreality, then this fluff is perfect for you. I am sure in the end, each one of these women will achieve what they have set out to do: have an orgasm, land that job in high fashion, and figure out if being gay is really a bad thing when you know you can never tell your parents. These people need to have real problems like clogged sinks or head colds and then it might begin to resemble real life.
