This Is The Most Distasteful Show On Netflix

I wasn't going to review this show because I didn't enjoy it but then I thought to share the good news that you shouldn't bother watching it. You're very much welcome.

Girlboss is a show I ran into on Netflix about two weeks ago. I clicked immediately because what's not to love about a girl boss? I love shows about women in power and will waste no time seeing them.

I read the synopsis, and I thought, hmm...what's not to love?

Rebellious and broke, Sophia stumbles into creating an online business and learns how to be the boss. A comedy inspired by the best-selling memoir.

I have never come across the memoir before (I love memoirs by the way, they're the less boring versions of self-improvement books) and I know the 'best-selling' tag is usually a lie but it's got to be an interesting story to be made into a series. So yeah, another reason I thought to watch.

Sophia (played by Britt Robertson) is a free spirited individual that's trying to make it big but she seems to be more talk than action. She gets fired from her front desk job and that causes a lightbulb moment that makes her start doing what she loves - buying vintage clothing at bargain prices and reselling on an online marketplace.

She doesn't have as much business knowledge as she'd like but she tries to make her business work. Her motivation being to impress her dad and prove to him she doesn't need a white collar job to survive. She learns the hard way that businesses don't always go the way it's mapped out in your head as she faces several challenges.

My Thoughts

There are 13 episodes and I couldn't go past the 7th. Each episode is about 24 minutes and I could have sworn they ran up to 45 minutes. That shows how bored I was.

I love to connect with characters so I was looking for something that'd connect me to any character even if it wasn't the main character. Well, I like a good fashion bargain and the idea of an online thriftstore. I tried selling thrift clothes online before so I could relate.

Asides that, everything about this Sophia character was unlikeable. She was so rude, selfish, mean and sometimes disgusting. I wonder if that's how the real Sophia really is (she's the owner of Nasty Gal by the way).

There was nothing 'girlpower' about this, just a really shitty person who refuses to work on her flaws and maybe gets lucky with her business (I can't tell because I didn't watch till the end). Little wonder the show got cancelled after one season, it's verrry unlikeable.

I 100% do not recommend. It's got a 32% rating on RottenTomatoes so you know I'm not exaggerating.

By now you can probably tell (or not) that I've been watching a lot of movies and shows on Netflix. I need recommendations please. I'm currently watching a teenage drama, 'Never Have I Ever' and I'm loving it.

Thanks for reading my rant review!

Thanks for advising. !LOLZ

Why did the farmer dress his pig in an apron?
Pretty soon he would be bacon.

@wolfofnostreet, I sent you an $LOLZ on behalf of @alfarero

It didn't catch my attention and I didn't see it, the trailer didn't get me to see it. I was not interested in it, after reading your review, I don't want to see it, it seems to be as bad as I thought. XD

You made the right choice, it's not worth the time.

Glad I didn't watch. Catchy and seemingly female oriented titles feel like they're overcompensating for something and it looks like this one is

Exactly. They did too much with this and made such a mess.

Sounds awful, in Netflix they are experts in making the best show you have ever watched or the worst, there is no middle point 😁

Really? 😄 I've seen a couple that were just average though

Well thanks for the warning. I really hate wasting time watching substandard productions and it is nice where people warn each other about crappy series or movies. I recently had very high expectations about American Horror Stories and the season was incredibly crappy :/

Looking out for each other 🤝

I disliked this show also! My adult daughter liked it, so I tried watching it, but I simply could not stomach it.

" ..but I simply could not stomach it."

Same here!
