Last week I had one of those days where all I wanted to do is sit on the couch and watch TV. Luckily the Netflix keeps coming up with great TV shows for me to binge! Girlboss was on the list of recommended shows for me to watch and I decided to check it out. Based on Sophia Amoruso’s autobiography #Girlboss, the show loosely depicts a series life-changing events.
One of the things that really caught my attention was that from the very beginning Sophia knows she’s messed up and needs to get herself together, but doesn’t really know how. I think we’ve all been a “Sophia” at one point or another – I know that I been her in my early twenties. Britt Robinson makes the show really special. She has that I don’t care attitude, which is a huge part of the character and brings and an extra corkiness to the scenes that bring a comical factor to the show. Not to mention that she also kills in more dramatic scenes, you really understand how she’s feeling, which makes you want to keep going on watching her journey. When watching shows, you usually expect the main character to be inspiring and you want to become like them, but that’s not the case with Girlboss. Sophia is far from perfect and inspiring, she’s a real young adult, who thinks knows everything and soon realizes the world isn’t as simple as what people make it be. So she tries to get by with the poor resources she has. It’s unusual for today’s TV shows if you stop to think about it.
All in all, even though Sophia changes her lifestyle drastically, this is not a life changing show. It’s a fun show, that takes you away from where you are to the hip and vibrant San Francisco that Sophia lives. It was exactly what I needed the day I watched it (Yes, I watched it in a day). Fun, light, vibrant, good laughs and a bit of drama.
Have you seen Girlboss? What did you think?
