Hi everyone welcome back to how av wenever seen this. Before this week we discussed emily in Paris Saytun the hearus talk about how emilydresses, exactly like a two thousand Sitcom character, how everything comeseasy to her and how she is a terrible, terrible influencer. This is a podcast where two bestfriends talk about movies they've, never seen before. I'm Isabel and I'mLauren- and this is how have we never seen this before Bajo Moame Sova seove years come see comes up, Jep is about, is Jemoka Lauren New Song Li pocast host in case he didn't know, and we haven'tsaid it enough Larra I took Friendshipi, don't remember any of it, except forlike what I just said, but I pretty much only remember like basicphrases and how to introduce myself. It wasn't a good time and I had some worflashpas watching things. I had a great time learning French, butI can't say that I ended up being very good at it. I had an anxiety attackevery time I went to French class second to Monter, because I was so scared like it's ridiculous. How bad I was forlike how hard I actually tried. Is You try hard Nah? No, I didn't do alingo inwhere. I Lik. I did every time I couldn't get it. You were haunted by the DUOLINGO AWLfor like six months of Sometin, the middle of my dreams and go whbut anyway.Yeah we watched emily in Paris. We took a week off because I'm in schoolrighnow- and it's overwhelming like there's nothing to do, but it's alloverwhelming. So sometimes you just need a mid season,break yeah and like it was good. We needed it. Youknow yeah. I feel like it's like good, that we do like twelve episodes, thatkind o what we did last season. None of this was intentional. It's J s kind offalls, wher Ma it just falls right into place everytime yeah and like I don't know how we're going to find like five moreshows, but I think we should do a Christmas special. I was likingHalloween for next week. That would be good too, and then maybe I guess we'llend towards Chrismas, so it could work yeah. Well now you know how we planeverything. It's just like Ol the spots e literally the day before hey whatshowed you in a Wat, although this week I was, I finished itall on Monday, today's Wednesday, it's Wednesday morning, and I finished it by three PM on Monday- oh good for you, this is growth yeah, it's so it's Saidy we've beenhere for what six months in then we're findinggetting on trek all right, so emily in Paris. I knowthere was like oddly controversy surounding this I tried not like Ididn't like read any of it, because I knew I were doing it because I didn'twant to like get spoilers or have my opinion Soi. So I don't like know intot about that,because I just didn't want to get it mixed in. I did the same thing as you,because I wanted to go into it andbiased, but then, after I finishedwatching a show, I thought it would be okay to look up some French people'sopinions. The show and my assumptions werecorrect. They hate it yeah for for a good reason. Yeah. I, like, I didn't think it waslike awful. The show like I enjoyed like I wouldn't watch it again, but itwas just like yeah. I mean I hated this show, butwill I watch season to yeah yeah? I like I don't know I will talk aboutit. I don't want to get to too much into it in the first yeah but TBASICAall you should know about the show...

...before we start talking about thecharacters. It's about this girl who has to move to Paris for a year for herjob, and the only issue is that she doesn't speak French. So that'sbasically the plot of the whole thing. Maybe that's where my career will go.That's going to be you! Well I mean I don't beget a French indof like okay go ahead, I'm sure but yeah, okay, so basically the main characters. Emily she's Shshe reminds me a lot a Lotlo, alot of Rachel Barry because because everything comes easy to her, nothinggoes wrong. When things go wrong, they immediately go right again, Rachelbarries on my mind, because we yesterday we just finish Lee fine. Okay.I do not think this is an accurate comparison at all, not like she's, not like as obnoxiousand annoying, but everything come so easy to her. It's just like likethere's so like struggle of moving to franc, like it doesn't matter what shedoes. She always gets her way. I guess, but also Rachel Berry workshard, but she also gets everything into her yeah Mercedes Jones should havegotten every tolo Yo in so justice for Mercedes deserves more anyway, thiswaat a different sowbut yeah anyway. She she goes to Paris because well, herboss is pregnant. We find that out in the first like two minutes and takes orplace, and basically it's her journey, trying to work with this Frenchmarketing firm, that her bigger marketing, firm, acquired and there's love and heartbreak, an love BaAhin, Paris, Yeah Yeah. Who Should we talk about next? Imean we also meet Mindy. Okay was her best friend sort of so mitni is somerandom girl that she met in the park, and it turns out that Mindy is thedaughter of a very rich zipper tycon from China, but she is disowned becauseshe doesn't want to take over family business and she's working as a nannyfor some friendh family. This, I don't like her outfits and she eventually end up putting that jobto become an MC and ai club and that's kind of anything that ever happened to herther'v, also like a baskeler at party in there, but Yeah Ye H. Most of these characters are very toodimensional to be quite honest, but you do have sylvie I'd, say: She's the onlycharacter with some real depth here. Sylvia is her her new French boss,she's supposed to be kind of like a Miranda priestly type if you've everseen. Doublewares Proda, yeah she's, very business she's, the FrenchAnna Winter Yeah, and she wants her brands to remain exclusive and high end,so she's reluctant to take emily in because emily is sosocial media oriented. And so that's a huge point of contention and she alsojust doesn't respect emily. I mean who respects emily year and yeah, so she has some death. She.She has some moments where she's nice and you see that she's not just like a meanboss, but yeah she's, also having an affairwith thi one of her clients and that's aplot point in the show as well yeah. Yes, so then you have emily's neighboryea Gabriel, and he is basically this sexy neighbor, whose door she keepsaccidentally knocking on, because she doesn't understand how doort shedoesn't understand how flors work in your Os Stup like she's, so dumb, likeafter the first like again at the first time like by yourself you're like Oh,oh oops, like my bad, but more than once, really yeah. That's somethingthat you learn in French Rona, one when you're studying the vacation unit, but yeah Heis, very flirty with her,even though he has a girlfriend who's really really nice and her name isKimmy. She's super cool, her family owns like champagne. Are I don't Don' know whatthe the term is but like they ony have their venhered? Is it it been? You...

...there's the grofes that grow it's avineyard? Okay, I guess they ond ave ener, but they just make shapaingtheyre. They have their own label and she wants to have eventually like she wants to haveemily put their champagne on her marketing firms like list of brands. Iguess she's Super Nice. She like helps her get flowers because she can't sayFrench and basically Gatreal doesn't tell her anything andshe's like best friends with emily. Despite all the thing she does see herboit fom behind her back yep honestly Kami deserves more yeah.Oh her, her mom also tries to fun Gabriel's rush on when he tries to likebuy it from his boss and he doesn't want her help. Oh yeah, I forgot tomention that he's a chef, yeah I'd say like the last two importantcharacters are her two coworkers Luke and Julion. Julian is my favorite. He is the Sassy French coworker who doesn'tput up with Emily Shit, but they end up like play. Fighting alot and they become good friends, he's a the crazy hairright. No he's he's a Sassy one, and then I thoughtthey were both pretty. I never got their names. I think Luke is creepy. Idon't like him. Yeah he's a wiltlof Co he's very sexual yeah that everythingeverything is sexual. Yes, they paint. This show to be like to make Frenchmen seem so overlysexual and creepy. That was a huge problem that, like French people had with it, and Iagree like they made Frenchmen, look so bad in this yeah and not Ik, and evenlike, like everything everyone said, there was just like some sexualinnuendo like underneath it Itasjs like what like? Can you not for like twominutes? It's weird out, so we didn't say this,but emily is played by Lily Collins and Lily. Collins was a major producer ofthis show yeah. I saw that wouldn't I expect this from her because I feellike she's, so used to playing such serious roles recently, like she's INA, the Ted Bundy thing shewas in the the one, the eating disorder, one Ihave known yeah. No, I know what you're talking about. I like saw a coupleminutes of that. I never watched the whole thing yeah, but I wouldn't expectthis from her, but this is. This is also an MTV show that, like paired withThetflix partnerd with Netflix, I could see this from MTV yeah, but yeah, it'skind of aaul, the characters I mean so basically for episodes one and to it'semily, Arivy, an Paris she's kind of just given this job, because her bossis pregnant and can't handle the French perfume. Shehas absolutely kno understanding of French culture. She can't speak French,so it's just like a disaster when she gets there. The the music is really cool, though I like,like the French music, that they play consistently yeah it's cool anyway. I actually wrote that down the onlything. Saving this show is a soundtrack. The one thing I did like kind of thinkwas interesting was like their commentaryon like French culture versus American, like work culture and how like, whenthe first day emily arrives at like eightthirty in the morning, at thismarketing firm and like she's, just like or you on a holiday like what'sgoing on, and I guess it's Julian Whyeah, okay,Julian, like shows up and he's like now we don't even open until ten thirty andlike they take really long lunches- and that's, like I don't know, everything'sjust like much more relaxed, and I understand that from like being inother countries, apparently the whole TN. Thirty am thing is a lie. I was like reading like a Frenchperson's review of this and she was like I go to work at eightthirty everymorning. Sometimes I work until seven PM. The show is not accurate in that sense.Well, like emoly, never works to thats, like one thing like that, I don'tbelieve but like I believe that they take more time forthemselves. They do have long launches yeah andbasically they like try and get her to leave. They're like trying to push herout like Sylvie's, trying to be like extrem men to her and when they're means she makes herfriend Mendy and she what she does is like she creates this instagram calledEmily in Paris, and she takes a lot of...

...pictures and has the worst captions inthe world and somehow grows her platform from like twenty six followersto five hundred in like a night like that is not how it works at all andlike they're, the worst captions in the world, and it's just like a Selfi ofher every single time like tilting her head back and she's like face anyway.Basically, an episotute Sio trying finally tries to like get immerse inthe culture and takes French class shes, not great, and she only goes once and she keeps gaining followers. It's like thisweird, like underlying thing that doesn't make any sense. The one thingabout this episode is that this is kind of when, like another guy wasintroduced, one of the the clients- that's actually the affair.The guy that Tel me an affair with Sylvie, and I the one thing that I didlike read about this show was that, like they were like, why do all theseguys, like like her like every single guy, that's introduced like likeer,which is annoying but also like when we wentabroad like they were like obsessed with, likeAmerican Girls Yeah? It was kind of weird yeah. It's like it's a littleweird but like it wouldn't be like every single guy you ever met, but yeah.Some one. Remember that one time that random guy came up to us in the streetand was like you guys, look American we're like okay and then just tried to like talkto us and flirt with us we're like I'm coming home from class. Can you leaveme alone yeah, it's just like very weird how obsessed they, like othercountries, are with American girls like it that I was like I kind of understoodit, but also ias like it's not like every guy's going to want to date. YouByu Bunch Rih, whenever they're just like trying to like Tryin to talk toyou. Oh, I don't like either of their styles.I think they're awful dude. Why does emily dress like a random iesym? It's like every two sand show for kids. I wrote that down. It's like. Idon't know where this came from. shedresses,like Hanna Montana, did in like two thousand and six yes and then Mindy'sLily, and it's sust like what are you doing it's so awful, and why does she wear abaret everywhere yeah, every single time? She just doesn't know how to she. Justthinks of putting pattern on pattern on pattern is going to work and thet'snoalways always always wearing hats, and it's not just like a baret. It's like abucket hat. It's like a like a weird structured bucket hat. Like I don'tknow, it's not good. I also think she might have been wearing a wig for likea lot of this othere's some scenes where you can tell like that, she'swearing like her actual hair and like a few extensions. But then there areother scenes where, like it looks like she's wearing a fullon wig and I lookedit up and there is nothing on it, but when I was typing it into Google atauto filled, so a lot of people must have thought that, maybe I don't knowbut yeah thei style sucks and I like didn't, read any of the ploting,because I don't think it's important, but also everyone's very forward with theirfeelings, which is something like I've noticed from being abroad as well. Sothat part like I was like. Oh that's, probably like normal and Americans,just like Atis is weird and she also has a boyfriend wjam we didn't mention,but her boyfriend like was totally fine with everything in the first episodeand now on. The second episode he's like I can't do this anymore and islike by I'm not coming yeah. I thought that was so funny yeah, because okay, so she likerandomly sprung it on him. She was like we're going to have a long distancerelationship here all the Times you can come visit me like Blah Blah Blah BlahBlah and he's like. Okay and then he was like, I guess I'll go along withthis, and then he didn't want to like they had one like small fight and thenjust broke up yeah like if you're Hav you're in a long distance relationship,you're going to get into quote a few fights like it's going to happen, but it was just annoying that he waslike pained to be the bad guy, but like she was the one that moved away fromhim like he's out there pursuing his own dreams and they don't involve heranymore. So yeah as someone who's been in a weird long, IIN's relationshipjust just break up. I just like, didn't even see the point of that relationship being in there if he'sjust going to like dip after the second episode, exactly like she could have just likebeen like. I don't want to date. Anyone right when I get here and they wouldn'thave to worry about that boyfriend thing but or Jus, not include him atall, yeah that that's what I mean like...

...like cut that part out and just be likeshe's just moved to French osn't want to date. Anybody right away, yeah go into her work, allegedly, eventhough she does no work, yeah, Uyeah, so great love that, and also sheat least for the first EA episodes. Every time she tries to speak Frenchoth somebody, she just types it into Google, it's wrong. A A was me doing, my FrenchMo. I love that yeah, it's just every timeshe likes posts on social media. I just cringe. It was like one of them. It'slike for a later episode, but she's like Hashtid, champagne and champagne, or whatever and ijust a Lor thinoh.Another thing to is that in one of these episodes she she like randomlyhad to go to a party, and she just pulled a ballgown out of her suitcasejust like that. That was s tylen and we're like we'rejust gonna like bring a problem, and then my last comment about this wasshe's like complaining about how small her apartment is and Paris and how itwas like a maids chamber or whatever. But that's actually really NiceParisian apartment, a lot of apartments in Paris, don't even have a bathroom inthem. Did you ever have to like look up like Paresian apartments and like lookinto like what, like living in Paris, was like in French class? No, but I hada tiketock come up today of someone living in one of those apartments andthey showed me they personally show no like it's like how like small it was, but then alsohaw. They had a bathroom outside of it yeah the bathroom like if she was inthat type of living where she lived in the shom some. I can't I'm GNA eburassmyself, but the maids chamber, okay, music, probably Shando, Demi D, Thebomb, okay, whati'm, so bad at pronouncing things in French but M.Those are specifically for, like students usually- and so the bathroomsare usually communial and the kitchens are so so so small, so whatever she'sliving in is quite a quite nice apartment andthit's got to be like oneof, tes, yeah, mad t, but yeah there wasn't likehonestly. There wasn't anything special about any of the episodes, but I feellike that's kind of the just a one and to she doesn't understand anythingabout Franks and that's the whole season. There you go we're done yeah, we can go Fonton, Twen, four,okay, three and four. Oh okay! So episode! Oh episode! This iskind of okay episode. Raning kind of starts off with emily is at a commercial shoot, for we should start calling him by his namebecause he's kind of a big character and Tom it's on he's. I don't know why I speltehis name wrong in my notes. Anton Zame he's the the client that Sylvie'shaving an affair with, and he owns the this perfume brand and there's acommercial shoot for it, and the woman in the commercial has to walk acrossthe bridge. A frame of bridget is it's some really famous bridge. She basically has to walk across itnaked all fully cloaked. Men are gazing at her and no one seems to have aproblem with this except emily and emily talks about the male gazes andfeminism, and then all the people that she's with start making fun of the me to movement which,like once again, is painting French people to be horrible, yeah, and nowshe also her shower broke. So now she has to use Gabriel shower in the end ofthe episode she ends up, making the commercial, a political statement andsome really famous people like retweet the commercial and it blows up. Thecommercials awful though, like just the production value on the Coreshal likethey could have couldn't, have tried harder. It's like really bad. It'sawful and also like, I feel like in perfume, adds everyone's nated yeahlikethat's, how it usually is yeah. It's just like I don't know yeah, so that was at episode and thenepisode for we so she's still using Gabrel showerand she runs into this girl Kenny and...

...doesn't realize right off the bat that she is Gabriell's boyfriend girlfriend getting off turned around and she ownsan art gallery and when they first meet they kiss on the lips by accident, andI honestly thought they were Goinno go some place with this. So did I becausecames, like very flirty, with her yeah, I respected Emily. So much more once Ifound out that there's a chance that she's bisexual, however, that it dothing ever came ofthem, which is annoying yeah. So there's like a weird sexual ttensionbetween Gabriel Kami and emily. I don't know why someone would want to havesexual attention with Emily Tat, be so cringy and Gabriel starts cooking foremily and makes her an Omelette. That's really not a French Omelet, and I wasso offended to look at that and anything else important. Nothing. Oh,the one thing is that in this episode she starts to sell the idea of a hotelfragrance. She like just pulls this idea out of nowhere becauseshe's like oh I'm, going to this art gallery andbecause I brought this idea up to this guy she's never meant thisky in orLighe, but it's a big hotel like Techon Guy, but the one thatg I did like was.That idea is actually very smart. A lot of hotel chains do that they have theirown. Like signature sent that's like like pump through the air, because whenever you go somewhere, youll be reminded of thatsent and then you can also buy it, which is Wealli Mart. So I like that they haveit in ther. That was a good idea, doesn't back up anything that she doeswith research, though yeah she just kind of like. Oh, why do't we try thisand then it's like Oh yeah. What a great idea and everything like lovesher ideas and doesn't question them at all, and it's kind of annoying m likehom, silthy doesn'n, so hit's just like lets. It happen like they infest. So much money intoher ideas without any sort of research. Like statistics like budget nope, it'snot gonna get that I get that that's not like exciting to put on a show, butat the same time like som, where working occasionally like she never works and you're like.How does anything happen you know. Do you know that, like the the video from camp rock ofthe girl playing the keyboard, and she like yes, esnand everyone's like orAdemiovattos, like she's, really good? I me an that's emily. She like takes apicture like types like three words in a caption everyone's like she's, reallygood, yeah yeah. So some thing I really alsofound annoying about a specifically episode form was that she just like randomly meets the nicestpeople on the street like she meets Comingu on the street, and then theylike invite her places and she's like yeah I'll go like no questions like she justlike she met mindy randomly in the street. She meets come rentally in ThiStreet. It's just like why, like I don't know it bothered me a lot. Iguess that also ties and, though, with the fact that she only sees the good inpeople like that's one of her character traits. I guess like she specificallysaid that yeah yeah, but one of my like favorite quotes from this iswhen she like was really angry and she'slike I'm going to lench to a long lunch with wine, and Julian goes, it's elevenam, and she goes well say: Lai Yeah, she says ot a lot. She says Saye Iwe,like all the time. I know when you know one phrasen friend. Oh, I forget tomention this. I'm sorry, everyone. I also forgot to mengine that emily smooches Gabre Gabrel at the endof episode, four before finding out that right, he isdating Commi Yeah. I think it's like that's like also like really on him,though, for not telling her at the beginning. Yes, because, like they're,flirtthey Fer, like all the time she showered in his home- but I don'tunderstand, is how she couldn't hear if she can hear every sound that that'shappening in the apartment right, why she can only start hearing them havesex like the day after she finds out that they're dating yeah. That wasweird. It was like, so she wasn't around for, like the first two weeks ofher living there, like that doesn't seem likely m yep or, like he never called like. Youd,definitely be able to hear all of that...

...also he's just so flirty andinappropriate with her yeah. It's just like I feel like, but that's how, like allof them are. There are like, let's go to dinner and looks like W at one point, an Antoin. He buys her LAUNDRI and, like is likeno, that's not like for you to wear. For me, it's for you to wear for youlike, but, like that's like, is like super weird and inappropriate, just belike creepy and unprofessional yeah, like I don't like care like if they're trying to like, if, even if,like French cultures, different like that'sjust like this person, like you gon, O,understand that, like Americans, like don't, have the same culture as Frenchpeople like he like people wouldn't like just be like. Oh let me do thisYoa Ko. Do you think anyone would like actually do that? I don't know, I don't think so. I think they would be more aware of,like reallike, slightly aware of cultural norms for Americans if theythey're just a coming to work. There yeah good grief, good old anl, the showalso paints French people to be really lazy to and one of these episodes she ssitting down with Luke and talking about how Americans live to work, but French people work to live and yeah.I guess American are very focused on their careers in their jobs. I think itdepends on the person like. I just think. That's that's how some peoplelive in either country like some people, are very focused on their job, and somepeople like work hard play hard, and it just depends on what the type ofperson you are. You can't generalize about an entire country of like twoentire countries and people yeah, but like at the same time likeit's, definitely like a huge American stairs type like and even like when wewent to ash really just like we immediately notice how everything wasslowed down. People walk, Soer people are just like happier in general, likeyou do notice that I, like can't, say anything specific about, like Francelike I was ever like, visited there for a few days, but I'm like in mostcountries that I've been to the arthes. Everything is at least slightly slower,paced and people take more time for themselves yeah, but also, at the sametime, people still care about their jobs. Like Oh yeah, the show makes itseem like French people, don't care about their jobs and, like people areso offended by that yeah. But I wish that I could live in acountry where things were slower and people actually took time out forthemselves and, like I feel like in America, people are always braggingabout how busy they are like they're, like oh I'm busy, I'm so busy with mylife like MMM. Just look at me, I'm so busy, but I'm like. Why do you want tobe busy all the time yeah? No, but like I'm? Also that likeI'm like, I don't want to be fisal the time, but I feel like I'm beingunproducted. If I'm not busy all the time and like then I like over work myself, I'm like my life is stressful and I almost likeapplaed for a job yesterday like. Why would I do that to myself? I reallydon't need to do that right. Now, okay, you have a lot on your fleet anyway, okay, so episodes five and sixso en I was a five. I'm lays like kind of trying to be like fake friends withcame because she's been miss kind of messing, areound Gebriele.She also somehow gets invited to an influencer event because she's aninfluencer but like theyre, a company that used towork for or used to be partnered with her marking firm and then they leftbecause things something happened and there's like sexual attention, beteurn hearing,Garielle and then there's also this idea of bed marketing so like this mattressluxury, matcress firm, like ante her or them to market them in a good way andshe's like well. Why don't we put the beds in the most toriscy spots ofFrance, which is like, if theyre luxury bed? Why would they want to beassociated with touris but anyway also Tisisa, germ factoryyeah, and they just like put a bed in the middle of a street like a the mostamazing street, an pairs like a random street, open air like what, if it rains it's JS, very weird, and that ends and in episode six Mindislike having a hard time, fo man to go...

...back to China. But then they get this new client Cadau he's aframe famous French designer and he calls her basic because she has anIffel Tower charm. On her bag, I'm sorry you're in France and put anIfel Tower. Chum won your bag. I hateher, like. Are you the biggesttourist in the world like? Are you like flashing? Rob Me what what it honestly baffles me? Howshe hasn't gotten pick pocketed yet like? Are you serious, Ahanyway a shemeets another guy hooked up with that guy and then mindy cansying? She goeson double date with Gabril and came with this other guy, a philosophyprofessor superbnoxious. She also goes to the ballet and them breaks upwith Thisgy, because she realizes how pretentious he is. She also was drinking starbucks inParis. I wrote that Downheto Don a like come on any any other place like thereare hundreds of amazing cafes in Paris and you choose to go to SAR books likethe worse American. Ever if you drink starboks in any other country that,besides America, you deserve to get supported immediately goodbye yeah,it's just like no there's like a cafe culture, it's so important y. It really is, andyou go to starvbook sure, okay and then so she lost te Kido Accoun because shewas basic and then she just gets him back because she, why not? Because itreally comes easy to her life- is all rainbows and UNICORNS for Emily, prettymuch yeah that that was five and six and honestlyI read it again. I hate her hat they're JS, so dumb like how can be cute but not not! No doyou wonlty hear about was really triggering about episode, six for viayeah, so she immediately meets his guy, like the guy that the philosophy guyhis name is Toma and I couldn't stop thinking about. When we talked aboutSwan Lake, how much we hated Toma, he was so awful and Creepyo yeah, and this guy was so awful and creepyand talking about blacks, one. He said Twon Li just so like o Black Swan.Sorry on the end, he was like talking about how he wantedto keep. He didn't want to shower the day after they hooked up because hewanted her scent on him, which is weird and then the that laythat they end up going to his Swan Lake and his name is Toma, Oh, my God, thecoincent, the pier yeah, so that was just I was triggered by that wholething, but, like I just hate emily so much like when they were like hookingup or whatever the sounds that she was making. She was like: Oh yes, uhhuh great, like Sop you're, so annoyingyeah and her lougerey is so annoying to an't, even notice that she even missmatches patterns in her laungure. That's how you know it's bad. Okay, Ohgd F like there's, just like nothinghappens, but everything happens and everything's bad, like it's. Just likeit's just like a Ma show like everything's. Just like really like.Why d d You do that M. it's basically like every episode,emily messes up something and then by the end of it everything solved yeah.It doesn't matter like everything's going to be fine in the end. Yes, andthat happens again, an episode teven. Yes. So now we're moving on to episode.Seven and eight Sylvia is planning on going out of town with anoon it's weird,because his wife is okay with them having anaffair, because, allegedly that's part of French culture, which you know, I don't think is quitetrue, but silby basically leaves emily toBabysit an American actress who's supposed to be hosting this party andshe's very weird and rude, and so she has to the American actresshas to wear this. One specific watch that's worth like two million dollarsat the Party and they lose her and the watch, and so...

...they basically have to find out a wayto get it back and Sylvie is kind of like a boss, ass bitch and is like shefixes everything because Emile couldn't and yeah. The one thing that I alikereally really hated about this was that when they find Brooklyn Clark,Brooklyns the actress and when they find her she's in her hotel room likewith some random guy, but emily just decides to take a picture ofthis girl's night stand which has like drugs and stuff on it and postit onlineis like wild night out or whatever and Itjus like what are you doing like youhave like a legitimate job, where your social media presence matters I getlike being wanting to like post whatever you want on your own social melike that. Shouldn't affect your job, but when social media is your job andit works out to she drunk poa like a Picoo, dress and drugs, and it liketurns out to be a hit like what Um, no no yeah, also Gabrielle and Emily Kiss again at thisclub, while they're looking before they start looking for the movie star and which is like messed up to begin withand then Abrel is like drunk driving his mohed yeah. I A just annoyingthere's such bad people but yeah so episode, eight Comean Gabrieller.Having relationship problems so Camin decides to take emily on a trip to herchateau to talk business with her mom and somehow compriel ends up going, andit's really awkward and Mindy's friends from China arevisiting for a Bachelorette party and they make her go upon stage and sing asong at this drive club, and it's apparently a hit. I don't know she sings chandelier,which s his kind of hard song to nail, and I don't know if she nailed ithonestly yeah to she's. Good she's, like youknow, yeah, and so basically, coming is like one when you're at mychateau, like I want to introduce you to my brother, you guys will hit it off,and so you know they do hit it off. They end up sleeping together and thenext day it turns out that emily hooked up with the wrong brother, because thebrother that she hooked up with was seventeen, why she has hickies all over her neck.This is a business meeting. Essentially she has Hickis all over her neck hooksup with her friends yoan younger frother. The thing is that it doesn't even gopoorly for her because they don't care wom's, like is my son, a good loverOfer. What what that is just so wrong on so manylevels, because emily is probably like what so say she graduated. She was liketwenty two. She had to work her way up to get promoted so high she's, probablytwenty four twosandy, five, six HOKY AP wit a seventeen year old. That's notright like that's so, like maybe like consent. Lals are different in France,but like that's still like so wrong, especially when this is like marketedtowards Americans, but like to like this is being shown to American peoplegenerally right and you're. Just like there are no repercussions for this woman in her late twenties sleepingwith a seventeen year old yeah. It was. I just think that theshow should honestly be centered around to me, because she is the only thingthat saves it. She's the only character, that's not annoying and she deserves somuch better than those two as her friends. That is true and also likeEmily's oufits. Just don't make sense like it is the middle of the night andshe couldn't sleep so she's like in Jens and heels sitting by the pool yeah.What I have no explanation, it's just somessed up so awful justice for Comme Yeah Y, an episode Nin. We see like Emily'splan for their champagne, and it's so stupid, like she really just like,lowers the quality like not like quality but like she's like okay, we'regoing to have one brand bee spraying champagne and wouldn't be drinkingchampagne. But it's like a French champagne that is high quat,like you're, going to like reduce it to a spring champagne like, even thoughit's like as a different name. It's still under the same company. That'swhat they're going to be associated...

...with stupid, stupid, stupid idea, and itworks out great, also conme Tris, to set emily up withsomeone at this thing. She also like meets this random southern American woman, who's part of the Friends of the Louveand is like. Can you get Kadona donated dress for our oution she's? Like yes,sure, of course, like that's so easy, it's like shouldn't be, but it is, andthen the mile was supposed to wear the dress at this. Fundraizer doesn't showup and emily has to wok dress, and these other two like designers like buy the dress. But then they like coverin spray paor, like the splatter paint on it. As like a I don't know, socialcommentary or something and then Kuto so upset he's like Taaa man, yeah and then episode. Ten is like a wildride, so emily like meets up with Kado's nephew because he's likecanseling the actual designers, Ake canceling his show for fashion week,which is this episode and then emily gets fired because she sucks,which is like probably the only good thing to happen, but then hear two coworkers are like you can'tactually get fired in France like just like, come in every once in a whilemove things arounding your desk and it'll, just like go away like okay andCameian Gariel are fighting because he doesn't want her mother's help andGamonyis like I'm moving to Normandy, which shes wherehe's from to. Likestart. My own restaurant and then like Emili, is an inspiration for cadoand he comes up with his new design and he's like I'm back and Mindy moves. INWI, emily and kidtotakes over the the fashion show of the people who ruined his dress, so he likeruins their show because they ruined his show. He makes all these reallyTacki dresses that are just like colorful tool and th. He makes it seem like it'srevolutionary, but we've seen those designs several times from other yeah fashion houses. So like it's nothingnew like thef like that's. That was also like they weren't good dresses,but they were also just like other people have done that anyway,then Silvi's like you're, not fired, and then she like gets Gebriel, but it's alsokind of dating this dating Kados, nephew and they're, goingto go to an island for the weekend or whatever.But then Abriel was like. Oh I'm, staying in Paris because Antwon isfinancing the restaurant and everything works out. In the end, they end upsleeping together, too yep yeah. Well, there's just so much going on intentepisode like fired, not fired, Fachin, scancil, Fashon, mets back and thenlike Gare leving gebrels back it's like hm yeah. The last episode did really make mewant to go to Paris. Af Fine Love, though clearly everyone's going to love youthere and you're going to have so many people that are fighting over you. I doubt that I just don't want to be in America. Getme out of here. I hate it here. Can you believe it's like two weeks less thantwo weeks of the election get me Hapie, I'm like so scary.Everybody vote. Please, please, please vote for someone. WHO's, not donalds Ro,actually, no specifically vote for Joe Idon, because if you vote for someonewho's, not Donald Trump, that's basically a trump vote. If it's noreall, I to say that I feel like weird. Why wouldn't we be allowed to say thatI don't know? I thought there were like rules about that, but I guess that's like if you're likesaying like you'll give something if they vote for them, yeah, you can talkabout who you want people to vote, for we have free speech yeah, you heard it hear. First,everyone, Jo Bidon, has how we never seen this before podcast endorsement. Also Joe BYDIDNT has an island onanimal crossing yeah, I don't Naw, I thini've never played it, but like itwas pretty cool. Just like seeing someone tick ot go around and look atit yeah they had like pulling stations andeverything. It was great. You can get a sign, a Joe Binan, like yard, sign andthere's also like sweaters and stuff yeah yeah, but basically back to theshow yeah. So the show kind of is awful, but at the same time it'skind of like a train rick like I yeah a...

...car accident. If you will, I hate it, it's awful. It is disturbing.However, I cannot stop watching it yeah. It's like it's kind of like tethe. First Debate: Yeah ther was justlike a disaster, but like so many things, ware happening, you had towatch it yeah, not to bring it back to the election, but the most political episode yet yeah,like I kind of I do, want to know what happened with Gariol like and if, likein the second sea, if the, if there is a second season and if they like makeit sto like she just keeps looking up with random guys and then a bit like inthe last episode they're. Finally, together I will be annoyed and I won'twatch a third season. I know it's just so hard like to keep up with all themen that she dates because they're all tas tane person yeah that's. What'slike hard like, I don't Ike, I don't care if you like date, a million peoplebut like in a showing it's all the same person and it's likea new person, every episode. So it's like Bu, almost like ten episodes of randomnew guys, and usually I can't remember the names of any of them and like howare they different yeah. It also like annoys me how emily islike. Oh I'm such a good person. I see I see, like the I see the good inpeople, but then like we'll just sleep with her one ofher closest friends at this point because it doesn't seem like she hasany American friends, Ik yeah, icold Chicago. She hooks up with her, likeclosest friends, boyfriend several times and then lie straight to her faceabout it. Yeah, it's pretty pretty awful. I hate her. She kind of sucks. I don't know, I don't n, give anythingelse to say about the show. All I have to say is sould detest Emily Ye Sam O me yeah.
