Blogmas – New Series Review – Emily in Paris

Netflix has given us a new, easy going, 10 episode girly series to throw yourself into over the Christmas season.
From the creator Darren Star, who gifted us Sex and the City, all sounds promising doesn’t it?

The series is set in Paris, and a scene doesn’t go by where they don’t remind you.

Croissants, cigarettes, rude locals, wine at every meal, this series just screams ‘cliche’

It’s disappointing that you aren’t shown a great deal of the sites, culture or beauty of the city, only what you would find on a postcard.

There are likeable characters, but I have to say, Emily is not one of them. I found her arrogant and a bit dull, with quick thinking answers to her problems, she is happy go lucky but all is very predictable.

It wasn’t the funny, romantic or charming series I was hoping for, and was dragged over 10 episodes when it could of been shown in 5.

Lastly, the fashion.
I really thought they would pull it out the bag, leaving me with visions of iconic looks, ones that I may like to recreate and put my own spin on. Accessories that I’d be googling whilst watching each episode, and shoes to add on my Christmas list.
None of the above.

I spoke to a friend about the series and she loved it, so each to their own.

If you give the series a watch, let me know what you made of it?

  1. Great post! I loved Emily in Paris, but I agree, I was looking for more fashion because…PARIS duh!!! Lol. I hope if they do come out with a season two (I think they will) they’ll add more fashion and complicity to the show because it was definitely very predictable indeed.

      1. I always thought they were sort of mean to one another. I remember I did see the episode where Carrie got mad at Charlotte for not selling her ring. Because Carrie didn’t plan well, her friends needed to jump in? I didn’t like that
