Hi Everyone, welcome back to how have we never seen this before? This week we discussed emily in Paris. Stay tuned to hear US talk about how emily dresses exactly like a twomom sitcom character, how everything comes easy to her and how she is a terrible, terrible influencer. This is a podcast where two best friends talk about movies they've never seen before. I'm Isabelle and I'm Lauren, and this is how have we never seen this before? Joe, one of me, Sava, the COM Secumsong, Jima Pell is about Jamapelle. Lauren, New Song podcast hosts in because you didn't know and we haven't said it enough. Lauren, I took friends. I don't remember any of it, except for, like what I just said, but I'm pretty much only remember like basic phrases and how to introduce myself. It wasn't a good time and I had some war flash pots so much. I had a great time learning French, but I can't say that I ended up being very good at it. I had an anxiety attack every time I went to French class second semester because I was so scared. Like it's ridiculous how bad I was for like how hard I actually tried. Did you try hard? Yeah, no, I did do a lingo and I like I did everything. I couldn't get it. You were haunted by the due lingo owl for like six months, using the middle of my dreams goes whoo. But anyway, yeah, we watched emily in Paris. We took a week off because I'm in school now and it's overwhelming, like there's nothing to do, but it's all over whom. So sometimes you just need a mid season break. Yeah, like it was good. We needed it, you know. Yeah, I feel like it's like good we do like twelve episodes. That kind of we did last season. None of this was intentional. It's kind of fault where Bay and own. It just falls right into place every time. Yeah, and like I don't know how we're going to find like five more shows, but I think we should do a Christmas special. I was thinking Halloween for next week would be good too, and then maybe, I guess will end towards Christmas, so could work. Yeah, well, now you know how we plan everything. It's just like on the spot. If literally the day before. Hey, what showed you in a lot, although this week I was I finished it all on Monday. Today is Wednesday. It's Wednesday morning and I finished it by three PM on Monday. Oh, good for you know. This is growth. Yeah, it's so, it's study. We've been here for what six months, and then we're friendly getting on track. All right. So, emily in Paris, I know there was like oddly controversial surrounding this. I tried not, like, I didn't like read any of it because I knew you were doing it, because I didn't want to like get spoilers or have my opinions orright. Yeah, so I don't like. No, it's had 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. I'm biased. But then, after I finished watching the show, I thought it would be okay to look up some French people's opinions the show, and my assumptions were correct. They hate it. Yeah, for for a good reason. Yeah, I like I didn't think it was like awful. The show, like I enjoyed, like I wouldn't watch it again, but it was just like, yeah, I mean I hated this show, but while I watch season two. Yes, yeah, I like I don't know. We'll talk about it. I don't want to get too too much into it in the first yeah, but basically, all you should...

...know about the show before we start talking about the characters. It's about this girl who has to move to Paris for a year for her job, and the only issue is that she doesn't speak French. So that's basically the the plot of the whole thing. Maybe that's where my career will go. That's gonna be you. Well, I mean I I don't beginner French, and they're like, okay, go ahead, I'm sure, but yeah, okay. So basically, Um, the main characters. Emily, she's okay. She reminds me a lot, a lot of Rachel Barry because, because everything comes easy to her, nothing goes wrong and when things go wrong, they immediately go right again. Rachel Barry's on my mind because we yesterday. We just finished Lee final. Okay, I do not think this is an accurate comparison at all. Not like she's not like as obnoxious and annoying, but everything stuck comes so easy to her. It's just like like there's no like struggle of moving to France, like it doesn't matter what she does. She always gets her way. I guess it's awesome. Rachel Barry Works hard, but she also gets everything into her yeah, Mercedes Jones should have gotten every sole of your day. So just as for Mercedes deserves more anyway. The way, that a different show. But yeah, anyway, she she goes to Paris because, well, her boss is pregnant. We find that out, and the first like two minutes and takes her place. And basically it's her journey trying to work with this French marketing firm that her bigger marketing firm acquired, and there's love and heartbreaking love. Bla Paris. Yeah, yeah, who should we talk about next? I mean we also meet Mindy Oka, who's her best friend, sort of. So mini is some random girl that she met in the park and it turns out that Mindy is the daughter of a very rich zipper tycoon from China, but she is disowned because she doesn't want to take over family business and she's working as a nanny it for some French family. Basic I don't like her outfits and she eventually ends up quitting that job to become an MC and a dry club, and that's kind of anything that ever happened to her. They also like a bastroom at party in there. But yeah, most of these characters are very two dimensional, to be quite honest. But you do have sylvie. I'd say she's the only character with some real depth here. It Sylvia is her her new French boss. She's supposed to be kind of like a miranda priestly type, if you've ever seen devil wars product. Yeah, she's very business she's the French and a winter yeah, and she wants her brands to remain exclusive and high end. So she's reluctant to take emily in because emily is so social media oriented, and so that's a huge point of contention. And she also just doesn't respect emily. I mean, who respect emily? You're on and yeah, so she has some depth. She she has some moments where she's nice and you see that she's she's not just like a mean boss. But yeah, she's also having an affair with this one of her clients and that's a plot point in the show as well. Yeah, yes, so then you have emily's neighbor, Gabrielle, and he is basically this sexy neighbor whose door she keeps accidentally knocking on because she doesn't understand how door she doesn't understand how floors work in Europe. Like she's so dumb. Like after the first like I get it the first time, like by yourself, you're like Oh, oops, like my bad, but more than once really. Yeah, that's something that you learn in French one one when you're studying the vacation unit. But yeah, he is very flirty with her, even though he has a girlfriend who's really, really nice and her name is Kimmy. She's super cool. She her family owns like Champagne Urie. I don't know what the the term is, but like they only have their vineyard. Is it a vineyard?...

There's the grapes that grow. It's a vineyard. Okay, I guess I don't vineyard, but they just make champagne there. They have their own label and she wants to have eventually, like she wants to have emily put their champagne on her marketing firms like list of brands. I guess she's Super Nice. She like helps her get flowers because she can't say French and basically Gabriel doesn't tell or anything, and she's like best friends of Emily. Despite all the things she does see her boyfriend behind her back. Yeah, honestly, Camie deserves more. Yeah, oh, her her mom also tries to fun Gabriel's restaurant when he tries to like buy it from his boss and he doesn't want her help. Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention that he's a chef. Yeah, I'd say that. Like. The last two important characters are her to co workers, Luke and Julianne. Julian is my favorite. He is the Sassy French coworker who doesn't put up with Emily Shit. But they they end up like play fighting a lot and they become good friends. He's son, the crazy hairry. No, he's the he's a Sassy one. And then I thought they were both very pretty. I never got their names. I think Luke is creepy. I don't like him. Yeah, he's a little crazy. He's very sexual. Yeah, everything, everything is sexual. Yes, they paint this show to be to like to make French men seem so overly sexual and creepy. That was a huge problem that like, French people have with it, and I agree. Like they made Frenchmen look so bad in this yeah, and not like and even like everything everyone said. There was just like some sexual innuendo like underneath it. It was like what, like, can you not for like two minutes? It's weird. How. So, we didn't say this, but emily is played by Lily Collins and Lily Collins was a major producer of this show. Yeah, I saw that. Wouldn't expect this from her because I feel like she's so used to playing such serious roles recently, like she's in the the Ted Bundy thing, she was in the one, the eating disorder one. I have no yeah, no, I know you're talking about. I like saw a couple minutes of that and ever watch the whole thing. Yeah, but I wouldn't expect this from her. But this is this is also an MTV show that like paired with Netflix, partnered with Netflix. I can see this from MTV. Yeah, but yeah, it's kind of all the characters. I mean, so basically four episodes. One and two it's emily arriving in Paris. She's kind of just given this job because her boss is pregnant and can't handle the French perfume. She has absolutely no understanding of French culture. She can't speak French. So it's just like a disaster when she gets through 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 only thing saving the show is the soundtrack. The one thing I did like kind of think was interesting was like their commentary on like French culture versus American like work culture and how like when the first day emily arrives at like thirty in the morning at this marketing firm and like she's just like or you on a holiday, like what's going on? And I guess it's Julian who? Yeah, okay, Julian like shows up and he's like now we don't even open until thirty, and like they take really long launches and that's like, I don't know. Everything's just like much more relaxed, and I understand that from like being in other countries. Apparently the whole thirty am thing is a lie. I was like reading like a French person's review of this and she's like I go to work at thirty every morning. Sometimes I work until seven PM. The show is not accurate in that sense. Well, like emily never works. So that's like one thing like that I don't believe, but like I believe that they take more time for themselves. They do have long launches. Yeah, and basically they like try and get her to leave. They're like trying to push her out, like Sol Bey's trying to be like extra mean to her. And when they're means, she makes her friend Mandy, and she what she does is like she creates this instagram called Emily in Paris and she takes a lot of pictures and has the...

...worst captions in the world and somehow grows her platform from like twenty six followers to five hundred in like a night. Like that is not how it works at all. And like they're the worst captions in the world and it's just like a Selfie of her every single time, like tilting her head back and she's like face. Anyway, basically, an episode two, she trying to finally tries to like get immerse in the culture and takes French class. She's not great and she only goes once and she keeps gaining followers. It's like this weird like underlying thing that doesn't make any sense. The one thing about this episode was that this is kind of when like another guy was introduced one of the clients that's actually the affair, the guy that's having an affair with Stil Bee and I. The one thing that I did like read about this show was that like they were like why to all these guys like like her, like every single guy that's introduced like likes her, which is annoying. But also like when we went abroad, like they were like obsessed with like American girls. Yeah, it was kind of weird. Yeah, it's like it's a little weird, but like it wouldn't be like every single guy you ever met, but it yeah, someone remember that one time that random guy came up to us in the street and was like you guys look American. Were like okay, and then try to like talk to us and flirt with us. We're like, I'm coming home from class, can you leave me alone? Yeah, it's just like very weird how obsessed they like other countries aren't with American girls. Like it that I was like I kind of understood it, but also it's like it's not like every guy's going to want to date you by you we dree whenever they're just like trying to like trying to talk to you. Oh, I don't like either of her styles. I think they're awful. Dude. Why does Emily Dress like a randomized sim it's like every two thousand show for kids. I wrote that down. It's like, I don't know where this came from. She dresses like Hannah Montana did in like two thousand and six yes, and then Mindy's lily and it's like what are you doing? It's so awful. And why does she wear a beret everywhere? Yeah, every single time. She just doesn't know how to. She just thinks that putting pattern on pattern on pattern is going to work. And they know we always, always wearing hats and it's not just like a beret, it's like a bucket hat. It's like a like a weird it's structured bucket hat, like I don't know, it's not good. I also think she might have been wearing a wake for like a lot of this, because there's some scenes where you can tell like that she's wearing like her actual hair and like a few extensions, but then there are other scenes where, like it looks like she's wearing a full on wig and I looked it up and there's nothing on it. But when I was typing it into Google, it auto filled. So a lot of people must have thought that. Maybe I don't know, but yeah, their style sucks and I like didn't write any the plowing because I don't think it's important. But also everyone's very forward with their feelings, which is something like I've noticed from being abroad as well. So that part, like I was like, oh, that's probably like normal, and Americans just like as is weird. And she also has a boyfriend. Him we didn't mention, but her boyfriend like was totally fine with everything in the first episode and now in the second episode he's like I can't do this anymore and is like by I'm not coming we I thought that was so funny. Yeah, because, okay, so she like randomly sprung it on him. She was like we're going to have a longdistance relationship here. All The Times you can come visit me, like Blah, blah, blah blah, and he's like okay, and then he was like I guess I'll go along with this, and then he didn't want to. Like they had one like small fight and then just broke up. Yeah, like if you're have here in a longdistance relationship ship, you're gonna get into quite a few fights. Like it's going to happen, Um, but it was just annoying that he was like painted to be the bad guy, but like she was the one that moved away from him, like he's out there pursuing his own dreams and they don't involve her anymore. So, yeah, as someone who's been in a weird, long distance really ship just just break up, I just like didn't even see the point of that relationship being in there if he's just gonna like dip after the second episode. Um, actually, like she could have just like been like, I don't want to date anyone right when I get here, and they wouldn't have to worry about that boyfriend thing, but or just nonclude him at all. Yeah, that's that's what I...

...mean, like like cut that part out and just be like, she's just moved to French, doesn't want to date anybody right away. Yeah, she's so into her work, allegedly, even though she does no work. Yeah, Um, yeah, so great. Love that. And also she, at least for the first two episodes, every time she tries to speak French to somebody, she just hyped into Google. It's wrong, and that was me doing my friend Ummer that. Yeah, it's just every time she likes posts on social media, I just cringe. It was like a one of them. It's like for a later episode, but she's like Ha, Chang, Champagne and champagne there, whatever, and this or thanks. Oh. Another thing too, is that in one of these episodes, she she like randomly had to go to a party and she just pulled a ball gown out of her suitcase just like that with US Duds Thailand and we're like what is gonna like bring a promptress? And then my last comment about this was she's like complaining about how small her apartment is and Paris and how it was like a maid's chamber whatever. But that's actually really Nice Parisian apartment. A lot of apartments in Paris don't even have a bathroom in them. Did you ever have to like look up like Parisian apartments and like look into like what like living in Paris was like in French class? No, but I had a tick tock come up today of someone living in one of those apartments and they showed me, they personally show know, like it's show me like how like small it was. But then also how they had a bathroom outside of it. Yeah, the bathroom, like if she was in that type of living where she lived in the Sham, Sham, I can't, I'm getting embarrass myself. But the maids chamber. Okay, I'm using your probably like Shauno demd Devon. Okay, whatever, I'm so bad a pronouncing things in French. But Um, those are specifically for like students usually, and so the bathrooms are usually communal and the kitchens are so, so, so small. So whatever she's living in is quite a quite nice apartment and it's got to be like Roabza. Yeah, made but yeah, there wasn't, like, honestly, there wasn't anything special about any of the episodes, but I feel like that's kind of the just one and two. She doesn't understand anything about friends, and that's the whole season. There you go. We're done. Yeah, we can move on to caned for okay, three and four. Oh, okay, so episode, Oh, episode, this is kind of a okay. Episode three kind of starts off with emily is at a commercial shoot for we should start calling him by his name because he's kind of a big character Anton. It's on. He's I don't know why I spelled his name wrong in my notes. Antoine the same. He's the client that Sylvie's having an affair with and he owns the this perfume brand and there's a commercial shoot for it and the woman in the commercial has to walk across the bridge for him. Of Bridge it is, it's some really famous bridge. She basically has to walk across it naked. All fully clothed men are gazing at her and no one seems to have a problem with this except emily, and emilee talks about the male gaze and feminism and then all the people that she's with start Um making fun of the me to movement, which like once again, is painting French people to be horrible. Yeah, and now she also her shower broke, so now she has to use Gabrielle's shower. In the end of the episode she ends up making the commercial a political statement and some really famous people like retweet the commercial and it blows up. The commercials awful, though, like just the production value on the commercial, like they could have couldn't have tried harder. It's like really bad. It's awful and also, like I feel like in perfume ads everyone's naked. Yeah, like that's how it usually is. Yeah, it's just like, I don't know. Yeah, so that was that episode, and then an episode for we. So she's still using Gabrielle shower and she runs into this girl Kenmy Um, and does not realize right off the bat that she is Gabrielle's boyfriend girlfriend.

Okay at all. Turned around, and she owns an art gallery and when they first meet they kiss on the lips by accident, and I honestly thought they were going to go someplace with this. So did I, because communes like very flirty with her. Yeah, I respected Emily so much more once I found out that there's a chance that she's bisexual. However, that it does. They ever came of them, which is annoying. Yeah, so there is like a weird sexual tension between Gabrielle, Commie and Emily. I don't know why someone would want to have sexual tension with emily. Be So cringey. And Gabrielle starts cooking for Emily and makes her an Omelet that's really not a French omelet and I was so 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 hotel fragrance. She like just pulls this idea out of nowhere because she's like, Oh, I'm going to this art gallery and because I brought this idea up to this guy. She's never met this guy in your light, but it's a big hotel like tycoon guy. But the one thing I did like was that idea is actually very smart. A lot of hotel chains do that. They have their own like signature scent that's like just like pumped through the air because whenever you go somewhere you'll be reminded of that scent and then you can also buy it, which is really smart. So I like that they have it in there. That was a good idea. She doesn't back up anything that she does with research, though. Yeah, she just kind of like, Oh, why do we try this? And then it's like, Oh yeah, what a great idea and everything. Like loves her ideas and doesn't question them at all, and it's kind of annoying. HMM, like I'm stillsie doesn't. So he's just like let's it happen. HMM. Like they infest so much money into her ideas without any sort of research, like statistics, like budget. NOPE, it's like I get that's I get that that's not like exciting to put on a show, but at the same time, like show, we're working occasionally, like she never works, and you're like how does anything happen? You know? Do you know that Um like the the video from camp rock of the girl playing the keyboard and she like yes, Ky's and and everyone's like or and Demi Levados, like she is really good. I feel like that's emily. She like this, takes a picture, like types like three words in a caption. Everyone's like she's really good. Yeah, yeah, so some thing I like really also found annoying about specifically episode form was that she just like randomly me eats the nicest people on the street, like she meets community on the street and then they like invite her places and she's like yeah, I'll go, like no questions, like she just like she met Minnie randomly on the street. She meets me randomly in the tree. Is just like why, like I don't know. It bothered me a lot. I guess that also ties in, though, with the fact that she only sees the good in people, like that's one of her character traits, I guess, like she specifically said that. Yeah, yeah, but, UM, one of my like favorite quotes from this is when she like was really angry and she's like I'm going to lunt to a long lunch with wine and Julian goes it's eleven am and she goes, well, say lave. Yeah, she says that a lot she says. Say would be like all the time. I know when you know one phrase in friend. Oh, I forgot to mention this. I'm sorry everyone. I also forgot to mention the Um Emily smooches Gabriel Gabrielle at the end of episode for before finding out that, right, he is dating coming. 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 their flot they for like all the time. She showered in his home. But I don't understand is how she couldn't hear, if she can hear every sound, that that's happening in the apartment right why, Um, she can only start hearing them have sex like the day after she finds out that they're dating. Yeah, that was weird. It was like so she wasn't around for like the first two weeks of her living there. Like that doesn't seem likely. HMM, Yep. And it were like he never called, like you definitely be able to hear all that. Also, he's just so flirty and inappropriate with her. Yeah, it's...

...just like, I feel like, but that's how like all them are. They are like let's go to dinner, and looks like at one point, Um and Antoine, he buys her laenderie and like is like no, that's not like for you to wear for me, it's for you to wear for you, like but like that's like is like super weird and an appropriate, just like creepy and unprofessional. Yeah, like I don't like care, like if they're trying to like, even if like French culture is different, like that's just like this person, like you gotta understand that, like Americans like don't have the same culture of French people. Like they like people wouldn't like just be like, Oh, let me do this. Yeah, 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 real like slightly aware of cultural norms for Americans if they're just like coming to work there. Yeah, good grief, good old and the show also paints French people to be really lazy too, and one of these episodes she was sitting down with Luke and talking about how Americans live to work, but French people work to live. And Yeah, I guess American they're very focused on their careers and their jobs. I think it depends on the person, like I just think that's that's how some people live in either country. Like some people are very focused on their job and some people like work hard, play hard, and and it just depends on what type of person you are. You can't generalize about an entire country of people, like to entire countries of people. Yeah, but like I at the same time like it's definitely like a huge American staterscype like and even like when we went to rush, really just like we immediately notice how everything was slowed down, people walk swer, people are just like happier in general, like you do. Notice that I like can't say anything specific about like France, like I was. I'm only really visited there for a few days, but I like in most countries that I've been to there aren't do as everything is at least slightly slower pace and people take more time for themselves. Yeah, but also, at the same time, people still care about their jobs. Like Oh, yeah, the show makes it seem like French people don't care about their jobs and like people were so offended by that. Yeah, but I wish that I could live in a country where thanks were slower and people actually took time out for themselves. And like I feel like in America people are always bragging about how busy they are. Like they're like, Oh, I'm busy, I'm so busy with my life. Like MMM, just look at me, I'm so busy. But I'm like, why do you want to be busy all the time? Yeah, not, but like I'm also that, like I'm like, I don't want to be busy at the time, but I feel like I'm being unproductive if I'm not busy all the time. And like then I like over work myself and I'm like, my life is stressful and I almost like applied for a job yesterday, like why would I do it to myself? I really don't need to do that right now. Yeah, you have a lot on your fleet anyway. Okay, so episodes five and six so what I'm so bib. I'm like's like kind of trying to be like fake friends with Cami because she's been missed, kind of messing around Gambrael. She also somehow gets invited to an influencer event because she's an influence or but like they're a company that used to work for. Are used to be partnered with her marketing firm and then they left because things something happen, and there's like sexual attention between her and Gabrielle. And then there's also this idea of bed marketing. So like this mattress, luxury mattress firm like wants her or them to market them in a good way and she's like, well, why don't we put the beds in the most tauristy spots of France, which is like if they're luxury bed why would they want to be associated with Taurus? But anyway, also, this is the germ factory. Yeah, and they just like put a bed in the middle of a street, like a the most amazing street, in pairs, like a random street, open air, like what if it rains? It's just very weird. And that ends. And in episode six, Mindi's like having a hard time, she mights to go back to China. But...

...then they get this new client, KEDO. He's a frame famous French designer, and he calls her basic because she has an Eiffel Tower charm on her bag. I'm sorry, you're in France and put an Eiffel Tower charming your bag. I hate like, are you the biggest taurists in the world? Like, are you like a flashing rob me? What, Oh what? It honestly baffles me how she hasn't gotten pick pocketed yet, like, I you serious? Ah. Anyway, as she meets another guy, hooked up with that guy and then Minnie can sing. She goes on double date with Gabriel and Comie with this other guy, a philosophy professor, super obnoxious. She also goes to the ballet and then breaks up with the sky because she realizes how pretentious he is. She also was drinking starbucks in Paris. I wrote that down. He don't, don't mad like, come on, any any other place, like. There are hundreds of amazing cafes in Paris and you choose to go to starbucks, like the worst American ever. If you during starbucks in any other country. That the sides America. You deserve to get deported immediately. Goodbye. Yeah, it's just like no, there's like a cafe culture. HMM, it's so important, it really is, and you go to starbucks. Sure, okay. And then so she lost a Kiddo account because she was basic, and then she just gets him back because she why not? Because everything comes easy to her. Life is all rainbows and UNICORNS for emily. Pretty much. Yeah, that was five and six and honestly, I'm it again. I hate her hat. There's so dumb, like a ha can be cute, but not not. No, do you want to hear what was really triggering about episode six for me? Yeah, yeah, so she immediately meets this guy, like the guy that the philosophy guy. His name is Toma, and I couldn't stop thinking about when we talk about Swan Lake, how much we hated Toma. He was so awful and creepy. Oh, yeah, yeah, and this guy was so awful and creepy and talking about Black Swan. You said swel just so like Oh, Black Swan, sorry, and he was like talking about how he wanted to keep he didn't want to shower the day after they hooked up because he wanted her scent on him, which is weird. And then the ballet that they end up going to is Swan Lake. HMM, and his name is Toma. Oh my God, the coincidence is here. Yeah, so that was just I was triggered by that whole thing. But, like, I just hate emily so much, like when they were like hooking up or whatever the sounds that she was making, she was like Oh, yes, uh, Huh, yeah, great, like stop, you're so annoying. Yeah, and her lingerie is so unknown. Going to honestly didn't even notice that. She even mismatches patterns in her lingerie. That's how you know it's bad. Okay, God, okay, we'll move on, like there's just like nothing happens, but everything happens and everything's bad, like it's just like it's just like a man show, like everything just like really like why did you do that? HMM. It's basically like every episode Emily messes up something and then by the end of it everything solved. It doesn't matter, like everything's going to be fine in the end. Yes, and that happens again in episode seven. Yes, so now we're moving on to episode seven and eight. Sylvia is planning on going out of town with Antoine. It's weird because his wife is okay with them having an affair because allegedly that's part of French culture, which, you know, I don't think is quite true, but she still be basically leaves emily to Babysit an American actress, Um who's supposed to be hosting this party, and she's very weird and rude, and so she has to the American actress has to wear this one specific watch that's worth like two million dollars at the Party and they lose her and the watch and so they basically have to find out a way to get it back in.

Sylvie is kind of like a boss ass bish and is like she fixes everything because emily couldn't. And Yeah, the one thing that I ab like really really hated about this was that when they find Brooklyn Clark, Brooklyns the the actress, I'm when they find her, she's in her hotel room like with some random guy, but emily just decides to take a picture of this girl's nightstand, which has like drugs and stuff on it, and post it online. Is like wild night out or whatever, and it's like, what are you doing, like you have like a legitimate job where your social media presence matters. I get like being a wanting to like post whatever you want on your own social media, that shouldn't affect your job, but when social media is your job and it works out to she drunk pose like a picture dress and drugs and it like turns out to be a hit. Like what? Um, no, no. Yeah, also, Gabrielle and Emily Kiss again at this club while they're looking before they start looking for the movie star and Um, which is like messed up to begin with, and then Gabrielle is like drunk driving his moped. Yeah, I'm just annoying. There's such bad people. But yeah, so episode eight, Camie and Gabriella having relationship problem. So comede decides to take emily on a trip to her chateau to talk business with her mom, and Somehow Gabrielle ends up going and it's really awkward. And Mindy's friends from China or visiting for a Bachelorette Party and they make her go up on stage and sing a song at this drag club and it's apparently a hit. I don't know. She Sings Chandelier, which is kind of hard song to nail, and I don't know if she nailed it. Honestly, yeah, this she's good. She's like yeah, yeah, and so, basically, Kemm, he's like one when you're at my chateau, 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 the next day it turns out that emily hooked up with the wrong brother because the brother that she hooked up with was seventeen. Um. Why? She had Hickey's all over her neck. This is a business meeting. Essentially, she has hickeys all over her neck, hooks up with her friends, you know, younger brother and the thing is that it doesn't even go poorly for her, because they don't care. My Mom's like, is my son a good lover? Her? What? What? That is just so wrong on so many levels, because emily is probably like what so say? She graduated, she was like twenty two. She had to work her way up to get promoted so high. She's probably twenty four, twenty five, six. Hookie up with a seventeen year old. That's not right. Like that's so like maybe like consent laws are different in France, but like that's still like so wrong, especially when this is like marketed towards Americans. But like to like this is being shown to American people generally right, and you're just like there are no repercussions for this woman in her late twenties sleeping with a seventeen year old. HMM, yeah, it was. I just think that the show should honestly be centered around Cami, because she is the only thing that saves it. She's the only character that's not annoying and she deserves so much better than those two as her friends. That is true. And also, like Emily's outfits just don't make sense. Like it is the middle of the night and she couldn't sleep, so she's like in jeans and heels sitting by the pool. Yeah, what, I have no explanation. It's just so messed up, so awful. Justice for Cam Um. Yeah, an episode nine, we see like Emily's plan 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're going to have one brand be spraying champagne and would be drinking champagne, but it's like a French champagne that is high quality. You're going to like reduce it to a spring champagne, like even though it's like has a different name, it's still under the same company. That's what they're going to be associated with.

Stupid, stupid, stupid idea, and it works out great. Also, Cami tries to set emily up with someone at this thing. She also like meets this random of Southern American woman WHO's part of the Friends of the Louver and is like can you get Kiddo to donated dress for our auction? She's like yes, sure, of course, like that's so easy. It's like shouldn't be, but it is. And then the model was supposed to wear the dress at this fundraiser doesn't show up and emily has to wear the dress and these other to like designers, like buy the dress, but then they like cover and spray paint or like the splatter paint on it as like a I don't know, social commentary or something, and then Kudos. So upset, he's like yeah, and then episode ten is like a wild ride. So emily like meets up with Kado's nephew, because he's like canceling the actual designers, like 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 her to co workers are like you can't actually get fired in France, like just like come in every once in a while, move things around in your desk and you it'll just like go away, like okay, and can me and Garrielle are fighting because he doesn't want her mother's help, and Gebra's like I'm moving to Normandy, which is where he's from, to like start my own restaurant. And then, like emily is an inspiration for Cadoh and he comes up with this new design. He's like I'm back, and mini moves in with emily and Kiddo takes over the fashion show of the people who ruined his dress, so he like ruins their show because they ruined his show. He makes all these really attack he dresses that are just like colorful tool and he makes it seem like it's revolutionary, but we've seen those designs several times from other, yeah, fashion houses, like it's nothing new, like the fat like that's that was also like they weren't good dresses, but they're also just like other people have done that anyway. Then Sylvie's like, you're not fired, and then she like gets Gabriel, but it's also kind of dating this dating Kiddo's nephew, and they're going to go to an island for the weekend or whatever, but then Gabriel's like, Oh, I'm staying in Paris because Antouan is financing the restaurant, and everything works out in the end. They end up sleeping together to Yep, yeah, there's just so much going on in the ten episode like fired, not fired, fashion's canceled, fashion back and then like get rid leaving Gabriel's back, like hmm, yeah, Um, the last episode did really make me want to go to Paris and find love. Clearly everyone's gonna love you there 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. Get me out of here. I hate it here. Can you believe it's like two weeks lesson, two weeks the election. Get me up here. I'm like so scared. Everybody vote, please, please, please, vote for someone who's not Donald's drup. Actually, no, specifically vote for Joe Biden, because if you vote for someone who's not Donald Trump, that's basically a trump vote. If it's all really hard to say that, I feel like we are. Why wouldn't we be allowed to say that? I don't know, I thought they are like rules about that, but I guess that's like if you're like saying, like you'll give something if they vote for them. Yeah, you can talk about who you want people to vote for. Okay, we have free speech. Yeah, you heard it here first everyone. Joe Biden has, how we never seen this before, podcasts endorsement. Also, Joe Biden has an island on animal crossing. Yeah, I don't know, I've never played it, but like it was pretty cool, just like seeing someone tick that go around and look at it. Yeah, they have like pulling stations and everything is great. You can get a sign, a Joe Biden like yard sign, and there's also like sweaters and stuff. Yeah, yeah, but basically back to the show. Um, yeah, so the show kind of is awful, but at the same time it's kind of like a train wreck, 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 the first debate. Yeah, there was just like a dastard but like, so many things are happening. You had to watch it, yea, not to bring it back to the election, the most political episode yet. Yeah, like, I kind of I do want to know what happened with Gabriel, like and if, like in the second see if they're if there is a second season, and if they like make it to like she just keeps looking up with random guys and then, a bit like in the last episode, they're finally together. I will be annoyed and I won't watch a third season. I know it's just so hard, like to keep up with all the men that she dates, because they're all the same person. Yeah, that's what's like. Hard, like I don't like, I don't care if you like date a million people, but like in a showing it's all the same person and it's like a new person every episode. So it's like but almost like ten episodes of random new guys and your just like, I can't remember the names of any of them and like how are they different? Yeah, yeah, it also like annoys me. How Emily is like, Oh, I'm such a good person, I see, I see like the I see the good in people, but then like we'll just sleep with her one of her closest friends at this point, because it doesn't seem like she has any American friends. Well, yeah, like Chicago, she hooks up with her like closest friend's boyfriend several times and then lies straight to her face about it. Yeah, it's pretty pretty awful. I hate her. Kind of sucks. I don't know, I don't like to give anything else to say about the show. Um, all I have to say is Jud detest emily. Yeah, say, loot be yeah, I mean, but like I'm kind of like thought I watched it just because, like it's been so you know, everyone's talking about it, so he had to. We had to watch it. You know.
