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 »

User Reviews

A modern satire about social media...
8 October 2014 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

This series is presented in many ways as a modern adaptation of "My fair lady". If nothing else the 2 main protagonists names are derived straight from those of the well know musical and later film. Eliza Doolittle has become Eliza Dooley, and Henry is an obvious reference to Henry Higgins!

To be honest this connection wasn't necessary if you check the first 2 episodes of "Selfie". It could have worked with any names since the actual premise is completely different.

The 2 stars are Karen Gillan who is very photogenic and pleasant to watch and John Cho who after the first 2 episodes has proved himself as very suitable for the part.

The series it is basically a satire of the social media and the modern way (young) people communicate. Tweeter, facebook, are constantly mentioned and can be seen in screens in most of the scenes. Loose sex attitude, casual relations, the addiction of the social media themselves are a prominent theme of the show.

It's not hilariously funny, despite some strong off-beat humor, but will make you smile to say the least.

The work place is an ...advertising company (again?? gimme a break!! isn't any other business out there for a new series) and that is the only thing that actual bothered me. Well that, and the fact that Eliza is presented like a total ho!

Overall: Good intentions, a very cute leading lady. Check it out.
