Lots of reviews have been happening on my blog, I know. I prefer to talk about what I’ve been watching than going on a loop about Covid and the second lockdown.
I have to be honest on this one. I watched ‘Emily in Paris’ because I was bored and gave in to the Netflix proposition. This has been happening quite a lot lately. It also seemed like a good candidate to an easy-going series.
It was nice.
I watched it in two days, the series is quite simple and cliché but it was still enjoyable.
I enjoyed the clichés of the romance and fashion in Paris. It was also nice to practice my French although I don’t remember what I learnt on the series.
It has French culture with a strong Hollywood scent. She was always flawless and couture like Hollywood likes to give us. The French were put as I see them. Not stating that everyone is the same but their culture is very much what was displayed.
I don’t really have that big of a basis for that opinion but half my family, including my mom, is French and I do see them as Sylvie and the crew was portrayed. Funningly enough my mom’s name is Sylvie too so it added a ‘je ne sais quoi’ for me.
Really nice to watch if you don’t want to think. We all have those days.
Also, I quite enjoy when the main character does everything I would like to do in her situation but wouldn’t because I’m too ‘shy’. She is fearless and iconic but she is also in a very planned world where everything always falls at her feet, something that doesn’t happen in real life.
She is quite young, skinny, with designer clothes that just a blouse costs double my rent or more. Would like to have seen something a little different than this ‘model’ that Hollywood always choses to go for.
Whatever it may be, it’s an enjoyable series that you can use as noise while crafting or to pay attention but not too much.
I have to say that on a PR professional perspective, this series is quite interesting as the campaigns she makes could be very real and I am sure they would be successful.
