The upside of spending a few days indoors feeling like crap is that I got to watch back-to-back episodes of The Bold Type.
Dubbed as a Sex and the City for a new (woke) generation, it is light entertainment – there were many raised eyebrows from my husband who repeatedly asked ‘What on earth are you watching?’ – but it also has some substance.
The Bold Type follows the lives of three twentysomething best friends who work at a glossy women’s magazine, Scarlet. While the series has been acknowledged for tackling issues like racism, sexuality, fertility and #MeToo, the characters live in a shiny and unrealistic world, wear beautiful clothes, always look fresh, and don’t seem to do much work, but that’s what makes it fun and sometimes, that’s all we need in a show.
This article about the most unrealistic parts of the series made me laugh out loud.
