OUI OUI!!!! MAGNIFIQUE! BAGUETTES! CROISSANTS! Emily in Paris is here to stay.
Do we like this show? Not really, but also yes. It's pretty absurd, and the acting is very "fine," but for some reason everyone on earth is drawn to it. Whether we're making fun of Emily's outfits, how unrealistic all of her social media success is, or watching solely to keep up with all of the A++++++ HOTTIES on the cast, enough of us are watching this show for Netflix to shell out the cash to keep it on for at least two more seasons. Honestly? I watched the whole second season in 1 day. I don't think I can pretend like I "don't like it" anymore. The internet continues to have mixed reviews:
I could read Emily in Paris tweets all day long. I think I'd classify the show as a mix between young adult novels from the 2000s and CAMP? Which, actually sounds amazing now that I've made that conclusion. No wonder I love it.
The funniest theories that come from this are that eventually, Joe (from the other Netflix darling, YOU) who -SPOILER- ended the last season fleeing to Paris, will fall in love with Emily and kill her. HAHA. They are of the same time, they are around the same age, and if Netflix did even a small cameo of Joe Goldberg in the show, I think everyone on the internet's head would explode. I'm personally hoping we get a little easter egg Joe in the background of a mediocre selfie of Emily's that gets one million likes, is recognized, and it leads to his arrest. Genius.
Can't wait for Seasons 3 and 4!
