Did You Know?


Producer Steven Soderbergh, who also directed the movie of which the show is inspired by, wanted to approach the making of the show as a creative experiment, so he proposed a male/female filmmaker duo which hadn't worked together before, in this case Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz, to write and direct season 1. Both Kerrigan and Seimetz talked later about the difficulty of the experience, so it wasn't a surprise when season 2 presented a two-story structure where said stories were completely independent, each one written and directed by the directors on their own. For season 3, however, which was greenlight a year an a half after the finale of season 2, Soderbergh seemed to have forgone the experiment approach, because he just hired Anja Marquardt to do 10 episodes.

Pretty Good
11 April 2016 | by ramvelecSee all my reviews

So far I have watched 3 episodes. It was an alluring title which piqued my interest. So far it has been a satisfactory experience. I consider myself more of an intellectual instead of a sexual person, but I like depth in programs where I can learn something regardless of its subject matter. There seems a sense of emptiness in the mens lives who hire the girlfriend experience, and they are looking for some form of happiness but the vibe I get is after meaningless stranger sex and having wasted a lot of money they might feel even more empty afterwards, because the experience is fake and she has many other "boyfriends". There is another good lesson to learn, that it is unwise to trust anyone or let anyone live in your house or else they will steal the money from your drawer, it reinforces the principle in my mind that No Good Deed Goes Unpunished and Don't Trust Anybody. I look forward to watching the succeeding episodes.
