Everything wrong with ‘Emily’ in Paris

  1. She lost the 2 million watch and the person she was responsible for because she was clubbing and then rather than informing her seniors about it she tries to lie .(which could have made the situation worse)
  1. She comes to a city and not even bother to learn the local language or a little about the common mannerism. The majority of the time she behaves as a tourist and genuinely never tries to accept Paris. She complains about people not accepting her, but the majority of the time, she is the one judging them and making them uncomfortable.
  2. Every time she learns something new about their manners, way of living, or culture, she cites how different it is from ‘the American way’ and implies that the French way is wrong. Imagine a french working in America trying to change the whole cooperate way of working? as ridiculous as it sounds, that is what Emily tries doing during the whole series, rather than adjusting, learning, and adding to the company, she creates problems due to her rigid stereotypical thinking and stubbornness.
  1. She lacks any kind of vision for life. Although she is supposed to be this hardworking professional full of goals, we never see her talking about anything significant thing that she is working for. It seems like she doesn’t have any long term goal and just focuses on the next promotion or just keeping her job.
  2. When Sylvie repeated told the kind of identity she wants for their brand, Emily disagrees with her vision but never shares what she wants the brand’s identity to be, despite her(Emily) being so clear when it comes to the brand identities of their customers.
  1. Emily constantly keeping whining about how lonely she is, but every time like EVERY time, she is sitting alone in a cafe or party or bench, she finds an English speaking friend or a love interest. And still rather than being happy she still feels alone?
  2. It’s ok to have principles, and it’s completely fine to make people around you aware of them, but Emily seems like trying too hard. I mean yes, I get it you don’t want to get involved with your clients or someone already committed (I know, I know) but why keep rubbing it in everyone’s face in it?
  1. She says ‘ There is a lot we can learn from each other’, but throughout the series, she tries to teach everyone the ‘American way’ rather than taking a few things from french. For a change, it would have been nice to see her evolve picking up a few things from her time in Paris.
  2. The whole series she keeps judging people for not being professional but in the end, she is the one who first loses a person, she is responsible for due to her partying and then simply gives up (she doesn’t even inform her superiors about it) and gets involved with a client, and cheats on him with her friend’s not completely separated boyfriend.
  3. She pretends to be this bold, gets things done girl but in the end, it is always Gabriel who saves her (how is his restaurant still running with all his attention on her), broken shower ask him for help, messed up restaurant booking ask him to cook, lost a person he carries her around, where are her people’s skill she boasts about with the hotel receptionist.
