The second season of EMILY IN PARIS is clearly a little bit better than the first season, but that is not saying much. It is a pink and purple haze of fluff served on a platter of platitudes we donโ€™t usually talk about anymore. 

Emily (Lily Collins) is still living in Paris wearing the most outrageous clothes combinations and color patterns. I want to know where she gets her money to shop for a new outfit everyday with the type of job she has. All of us would like to know! 

She is perky and cute, but definitely not a deep or worldly character. She is adorable and she cares for her friends and lovers alike. She has language barriers and is learning French. Emily is a hard worker, and devoted to her job. She looks and acts younger than her years. 

The men are hunky and perfectly built. The food and wine flows freely. The best character is Emilyโ€™s friend, Mindy (Ashley Park). This actress has amazing singing pipes. She stops the show whenever she appears, and this season, the writers expanded her role and vocal solos. This was always a treat. 

EMILY IN PARIS is a light-hearted, romcom romp. It is not to be taken seriously on any level. I have been told, the world still needs this type of series to ease the worry lines from our fretful faces. Emily ended with huge choices to make for her future. Perhaps she will be back next year. Watch it now whenever you need that spoonful of sweetness to get you through the day. It is available to stream on Netflix.
