    surprised I like this show so much, I'm not the demo

    lighthearted and funny as hell
    does all the French are rude and Americans are dumb stereotypes but done well


    had no clue Lily Collins is the daughter of Phil Collins and has no British accent IRL

    This show is getting such bad press, but there's a few people out there who seem to love it. I think it's a lot of woke folks who are hating it.

    I watched the first episode and didn't dislike it for "woke" reasons; I disliked it because the characters run the full range from unlikable to highly unlikable.

    And I've always been a Lily Collins fan, so...
    I think you misplaced the adjectives. That should be "rude and dumb as hell." :D

    I binged the whole thing in a day.

    This is one of those "so bad it's good" deals for me.

    I think the timing of it's release helps - it's easy and brainless and an appealing escape, even if you hate it. Plus the fashion is pretty fabulous!!! I can't really explain it much better.

    The best part is that it reminded me I wanted to watch Younger (another Darren Star show starring my fave Sutton Foster). I binged that one in a week and it is just wonderful!!!

    All the time we were watching I was like "Why does she seem so familiar." I never connected the dots. Thank you.
