Potential wasted, again
15 March 2021 | by saradoreeSee all my reviews

I don't want to ruin pleasure of watching an average background show to anyone who agreed to Netflix late years sub-standard, but this show is too unreal to be true and the potential got wasted straight in the beginning. First, I'm sure there's more to a young female journalist than being constantly angry and giving their boss the attitude before an adequate performance. Second, one of the topics was apparently feminism, yet the actresses were chosen according to every teenage series standards saying young women are just fine out there wearing their lashes and mini skirts, with almost no emphasis on their character whatsoever and making them say whatever they want with no consequences at all. Third, why not to show off some harder and more complex stories they could be working on? I think we are way beyond the tutorials on how to apply the lipstick in 2021. Again, I missed the feminism part in their work completely. I'm a young woman in her early 30s and yet find it very hard to relate to these characters slash career women. It's an amazing opportunity worth exploring much more beyond the surface. Sex and the city may seem easy to copy, but you shouldn't miss the complexity of how to make a show work. Once I'm up for background fillers, I will probably get back to it.
