Review of Selfie

30 minutes

“Instafamous” Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan) has 263,000 followers who hang on to her every post, tweet and selfie. But one lonely day she has a revelation: being friended is not the same as having actual friends. She asks marketing guru Henry (John Cho) to ‘rebrand’ her self-obsessed reputation and teach her how to connect with people in the real world. Loosely based on “My Fair Lady”, “Selfie” explores the modern struggles of Eliza and Henry, as he tries to teach her how to live life offline—whether she ‘likes’ it or not. “Selfie” stars Karen Gillan as Eliza, John Cho as Henry, Tim Peper as Ethan, Da’Vine Joy Randolph as Charmonique, Allyn Rachel as Bryn and David Harewood as Sam.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Selfie is a modernized version of Pygmalion (a.k.a. My Fair Lady). At first, I was not very impressed and I can see why ratings dropped. However, I am not one to give up on my favorite actors for at least a full season, so I stuck with it and it grew on me. I would have liked to have seen what would have happened in future seasons.
