When I started watching this show, I was actually really excited. However, the moment I read the plot, I knew how predictable this show was going to be. An average American girl (Emily) gets a job in a fashion firm based in Paris. I would be lying if I said they didn't try their best to be extra in everything, the European culture, food, accent, and clothes. Everything was on point when it came to the representation of how europe really looks like.
Another thing I absolutely loved was how they portrayed high end fashion, the designers, the high tag prices. Furthermore, the accurate representation of how people in france hate to speak English. Emily does not speak french and everyone calls her out for it, they said it's "disrespectful" that she can't speak French in france, the cultural battle of english vs french was shown accurately.
We also need to be cognizant of the fact that this show had a female lead, sure it was a white, thin, "beautiful" woman but a woman regardless!
The major takeaway: this show was highly predictable, had various uncalled scenes involving romance but is a fun light hearted comedy show to watch when you're in quarantine!
