Critics Consensus

Girlboss has its charms, but they're ultimately undone by a fundamental mishandling of the show's problematic protagonist.

Audience Reviews for Girlboss: Season 1

    Excellent series. Very dimanic. The lead actress is a genius actor. Too bad the series was dumped. I would have watched an other season
  • Jul 24, 2022
    I enjoyed the series, it was vibrant and funny. Critics didn't seem to like it at all, and I think that's a bit misguided. First, the supporting cast was filled with solid comedic character actors. They did a fantastic job. The show was shot well, the set dressing was fun and interesting, the acting is good, and the main character's personality flaws reflect a reality about people. Finding your way in the world is tough. Some people are angry, self-destructive, generally messed up, and it's a struggle to offload the baggage that created that flawed person. Sure, character and plot development could have been better, but overall I thought the show flowed well and was entertaining, and it was more than a formulaic sitcom, so it gets points for that.
  • Mar 02, 2022
    I HATE when people screw up adaptations from books like this. They turn a relatable, flawed character into a bratty tool that's impossible to like. When you can see inside a character's internal thoughts, it's easy to relate to the rude things they think about, because we all think about stuff like that. I mean, nobody's perfect. BUT, when you take that type of storytelling and put it into the visual medium, your character is forced to push those emotions outside, and it makes them sound like the worst person.

    Great series. Really enjoyed it.
  • Mar 23, 2021
    This series is just another one of those American formula shows, where the main character behaves like a sociopath most of the time, only slightly crippled by a glimmer of kindness, and because of this professional succes is insured and the whole environment - people and all - only exists in order to serve the main character. Makes you wonder about the narcissistic personalities plaguing the entertainment world. None of gags are subtle or original, and some of it is even flat-out misogynistic. Very disappointing that Charlize Theron puts her name on this.
  • Feb 04, 2021
    It was quite funny sometimes but I can't even say I connected to Sophia at all. She had the potential to be a bad girl who learns about life and ends up redeeming herself by not being too selfish a.k.a aggressive all the time. But in the end, she is just only another generic character who curses all the time trying to be funny and hiding all of her insecurities and fear which also never confronts during the series. PS. the cheating boyfriend confronting scene in the last chapter was kinda hitting, a good one, maybe the best 3 minutes of the whole series.
  • Jan 29, 2021
    It drifted from its rags to riches($100 million in sales) theme in the beginning, but this is one of the few shows that got much better with age. The last three episodes were outstanding. Co-star Ellie Reed made this series come alive.
  • Jan 19, 2021
    Extremely annoying. What is the point of this show?
  • Jan 11, 2021
    Really tried hard to like the show. Watched till episode 6, but quit as soon as I started it. Main character is too annoying, it all feels like forced performance. No interesting story line, nothing is special about this show.
