Hello lovelies, how is your week going? For me, it’s been the usual: Go to school, have boring classes, face the bad weather, go home to do lots of patient’s case histories, get confused about some diagnoses and diseases, close the books, surf the net a bit, watch movies/series, get back to school work or sleep (basically in that order).
During the weekend while i was battling with an assignment, i took a break to go through my internet updates etc and find a new show to entertain myself, then i came across this new Abc show Selfie. I read an overview online to better understand what i was about to watch and it struck me as a show that would be interesting so i decided to watch the few episodes that have been aired.
The show follows the life of a narcissistic young lady (Eliza) who works as a pharmaceutical sales representative and is obsessed with the idea of internet fame through the use of social media platforms like instagram and twitter where she posts lots of selfies. She began to realize that internet friends/fame wasn’t the same as real life and is now seeking help from co-worker Henry.
I will rate the show as an Okay one, not great and not bad either, i don’t think it would survive as a series but never say never, i might be wrong. If you are looking for some situation comedy to while away time, then you should see it but if you are looking for a more serious show then this show isn’t for you. On the bright side, Eliza’s lifestyle is very similar to some of the social media insanity seen in the real world currently, you can pick one or two things from Henry’s marketing strategies and then there’s a touch of fashion just like most of other Abc shows (but more affordable pieces). Below are some of the fashionable outfits they wore from Selfie Season 1 episodes 1-4….
