Emily in Paris

Critics Consensus

Though its depiction of France is tré cliché, Emily in Paris is rom-com fantasy at its finest, spectacularly dressed and filled with charming performances.

Critic Reviews for Emily in Paris Season 1

All Critics (52) | Top Critics (20)

Romcoms are, of course, fantasies, but their charm is that they're also about people. Unfortunately, Emily in Paris is just about brands.

Oct 9, 2020 | Full Review…

Emily in Paris is a confection, a series so charming and fanciful that it becomes impervious to snobbery and cynicism.

Oct 5, 2020 | Full Review…

It's all very exhausting... This is a terrible show. Avoid it at all costs.

I can't tell you not to watch this; I watched it! I enjoyed it! A B-plus is a good grade! And there's no denying it: Paris sure is pretty.

Understand, these are tough times and vacuous, fluff-headed, indulgent, fanciful entertainment has its place. But "Emily in Paris" is pretty far from entertaining.

Top Critic

Technically, Emily in Paris is well-made, but the show's shortcomings -- from its simplistic depiction of French culture to its paper-thin protagonist -- make it more of an irritation than an indulgence.

Oct 1, 2020 | Full Review…

This was honestly one of the most disappointing shows I've watched.

Oct 16, 2020 | Full Review…

I choked down all 10 episodes in a single afternoon and I cringed through most of them.

Oct 16, 2020 | Full Review…

It's Star's kickabout fun with cliches that makes this show addictive, now that we've all been programmed never to make jokes about... well, practically anything.

Oct 14, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Ultimately, this is undemanding, binge-worthy viewing that easily washes over you.

Oct 14, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Despite the stereotypical script flaws, the delightful Lilly Collins is the reason to view and savor the series is a delectable confectionary treat, similar to indulging in those double-decker Ladurée macarons.

Oct 13, 2020 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

There's no point in attempting to review the show on its own merits, because there really aren't any, except for its watchability, which is arguable at best.

Audience Reviews for Emily in Paris: Season 1

  • 8h ago
    Shallow and full of simplistic stereotypes of the people of France and "the American". The story is not compelling. Emily's exaggerated "basic" character became more nauseating as the show progresses. I'd rather see more exaggeration like in a spanish language novela to be able to deal with it. Based on the other reviews, the general audience seems to be as pleased with this as if it were sweet empty calories.

    nice to watch everyday

    Actors are good, beautiful photography of Paris, I don´t think it´s pretencious or anything, it just passed the time and the length of the episodes (roughly half an hour) is great.

    Very cliche, but thoroughly enjoyable!

    It's funny. Completely absurd and I think that is the point. This girl is naïve and thinks everyone should have an "American perspective". She thinks she is there to help and super eager to show everyone her way! But she needs to learn more and understand where she's at. You can't do all that in one season. I'm hoping it comes back for another.

    It stereotypes the French people--and the Americans as well--and the plot gets quite trite after a few episodes. Watch this only if you literally have nothing else to do.
  • 2d ago
    It's littered with clichés and infuriating stereotypes, feels stretched a bit and suffers from a jarring transition between "the fish-out-of-water Emily" plot-line and the actual plot; but it has the charm of rom-coms we rarely get to witness in TV shows nowadays that's further bolstered by the radiantly amiable Lily Collins, and it has characters that are very easy to be invested in. Plus, it's addictively bingeable! (6.5/10)

    Honestly this is not amazing in terms of quality of writing and filming, but it is a fun and light show to binge. Emily encounters numerous overly attractive men, succeeds in her role in marketing against all odds, and leaves us wanting more. This show is funny and all around entertaining. If you're looking for a show that you can just relax and have a good laugh, I highly recommend.

    Is this the most original screenplay of a television series this year? No. Does it present an accurate portrayal of Paris and its residents? No again. But is it filled with heart, great performances, engaging storylines and pure, unadulterated fun? Absolutely, and I would love to see Netflix bring this show back for a second season.
  • 4d ago
    stereotypical to a fault and so unabashedly shallow, this is such a letdown because of how good the PREMISE sounds.
