Trivia

Karen Gillan wore a wig in the pilot, and throughout the series, as she had shaved her head for her role as Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). See more »

Alternate Versions

When Imperfect Harmony (#1.10) was broadcast on the TV2 network in NZ in 2015. The scene which Eliza and Freddy make out on top of Eliza's bed, which Freddy removes his shirt and Eliza removing her shirt, revealing a black bra underneath was cut due to the show's PGR rating. Instead it cut to the adverts, when Eliza and Freddy are seen kissing outside Eliza's bedroom in the Chandelier montage. See more »

Pacing is a little awkward but there's a lot of promise
30 September 2014 | by louvang27See all my reviews

Just watched the first episode. The pacing is a little awkward but there's a lot of promise. I think Henry and Eliza have excellent chemistry and with a few more episodes, this could definitely be a great show.

Not a huge fan of the Internet jargon used in the episode though. I'm a 20-something woman and none of my co-workers talk like that. Only the kid who goes to college and randomly shouts out "yolo" or "hashtag sigh". If I use Internet jargon, it is only ever used on the Internet. #sadlyfe

However, still think Henry and Eliza are mega cute. I do hope the show goes beyond those two as characters. If they pull the female friendship dynamics, (that scene with Wren and her friends LOL!) that would be really fantastic. Female relationships, specifically friendship, is so underplayed in TV/film right now.

Selfie could do a decent job at being very relevant on Tumblr if they had something people could relate to. Eliza is definitely not a Liz Lemon (in terms of gif-ability) but she shows promise for it. Show us more of her awkwardness, her clumsiness, her "Most Butt"- ness and I think the Internet would love her.

But for now, it only shows promise. Hopefully it gets better in the future! I REALLY want this show to be good.

BTW, did anyone spot the Matt Smith reference? Hahahah!
