Seduction and Disappointment
6 December 2017 | by tigerfish50See all my reviews

The excellent Season 1 of 'The Girlfriend Experience' related how a law student ventured into high-end prostitution to pay the bills and increase her living standards while interning at a big-city legal firm. Riley Keogh's portrayal of the main character Christine won a Golden Globe nomination, as her understated performance depicted the psychological cost of pretending affection to entitled executives and selling them her body. The scripts for each episode remained focused on the escort work throughout, with Keogh's micro-expressions betraying inner conflicts as Christine subtly adjusted her persona to please various clients, lovers and employers. The series revealed how prostitution affected her personal life and law career, and ultimately derailed both.

By contrast, Season 2 lost almost all meaningful connection with the call-girl lifestyle as it followed three different protagonists in two separate narratives. In the first, an escort named Anna embarked on an obsessive lesbian love affair with a sociopathic financial-political operator called Erika. In the second, former escort Bria got marooned in witness protection limbo as she awaited the trial of her gangster husband. The stories were neither believable nor interesting, the characters failed to generate any sympathy, and subtlety was entirely absent.
