This was the kind of light, educational drama and romance I needed right now. Saying that, this has too many clichรฉs and I should warn you some of them are not going to sit well.


SYNOPSIS


A young American woman from the Midwest is hired by a marketing firm in Paris to provide them with an American perspective on things.


THOUGHTS


FRENCH & PARIS

I am teaching myself French, so as a beginner this was quite educational as well. I loved to witness the Parisians, the culture, the French language and the absurdities of learning it through Emily’s adventurous monologues.

EMILY

I personally enjoyed Emily’s character, despite her being ignorant and her American arrogance showing.

RATING : .3.5/5.0


Overall, I loved this. It’s only ten episodes of barely 30 minutes long, so it was a good series to watch during lunch breaks.

If you like Disney movies you’d probably like this one has it’s filled with the same kind of cringe worthy elements.
