TV Review: Girlboss

Feisty, frantic, and fearless are just some of the words that spring to mind when the character of Sophia Marlow (Britt Robertson) first appears on screen.

Loosely based on the rags to riches story explored in Sophia Amoruso’s autobiography, #girlboss, the Netflix original comedy ‘Girlboss’ will take you on an emotional roller coaster – the good kind. Set in 2008, the series follows Sophia’s journey of building a massively successful online business from essentially nothing.

‘Girlboss’ follows a pattern that is just as hectic as Sophia’s life, but somehow it works. From the start of the very first episode, you will be 100% sucked in to this crazy, frenzy of a world. With great character development over the course of the 13 episodes and  brilliant secondary story-line of friendship, the series also brings so much more than just comedy.

Created by Kay Cannon, the screenwriter of the ‘Pitch Perfect’ movies, the series definitely brings the same punch with a strong theme of girl-power. Not to mention, the soundtrack is actually amazing.

Easy to watch and thoroughly enjoyable, (arguably) the best part of ‘Girlboss’ is that the episodes are only 30 minutes long, so you can go forth and procrastinate guilt-free. If you loved ‘Don’t Trust the B*tch in Apartment 23’, you will definitely enjoy this.

10/10, an amazing lighthearted watch.

About Cheryl Till

Cheryl loves not knowing what to do, including what to write for this bio. She occupies her time with different hobbies, although she isn't entirely sure if reading and watching Netflix for hours on end as a form of procrastination count as hobbies. You can probably find Cheryl in a comfy chair somewhere, pretending to be productive.
