Embarrassing Confession Time
I really, really, really like Miss Advised. Like as in I watched the first half before going to work and couldn’t wait to get home and finish it.
But it’s really all your fault, Tumblr. I had actually completely forgotten that Julia Allison had finally made it onto a TV show until I kept seeing comments about it pop up on my dashboard. And then I found out that the first four episodes were free On Demand. Well that settled it, I was going to give it a try. And so far the pilot has completely exceeded my wildest dreams (which to be fair was minimal).
My only worry stems from an apparent quote by the late-producer Nora Ephron, whom called it her “deeply personal tribute to women everywhere who embody feminism’s ideals.” Because I was going with this being a satire highlighting the most ridiculous stereotypes associated with women (hello 73-point dating / boyfriend list). And now I’m a little worried that might not be the case…
And the fact that this post is as long as it is makes me even more embarrassed.
