Emily Cooper is back on Netflix! Available recently, the second season of the series of Darren Star is already reacting on social networks. A quick glance at the viewers’ opinions.
Mocked for its clichés, the series Emily in Paris is nonetheless a success for the Netflix platform. So much so that season 2 has just been released. It offers an ever-so glamorous vision of the capital and of France in general, with, all the same, some improvements – as we explained to you in our review. Composed of 10 episodes, Darren Star’s fiction can be viewed in one go and some have already delivered their verdict on social networks.
For many, Emily in Paris is a real “guilty pleasure”, A parenthesis that allows you to cut yourself off from a very anxiety-provoking period. Moreover, in the universe of the series, the pandemic does not exist. The heroine and her friends can therefore strut without a mask and without having to respect safety distances.
The mystery of the “pee lady”
Yes, it is one of the expressions that comes up often throughout this season 2. Emily Cooper discovers the meaning from the first episode, and reuses the term even when it is not really necessary. A way for Darren Star to create a comic gimmick, but also to have fun with the sounds of certain French words. A detail that has not escaped some.
Popular French expression, it designates – always in the feminine – these employees responsible for cleaning and keeping the toilets in public places or in clubs. In recent years, the term has become more pejorative, even degrading for those first concerned.
A not very realistic train
Another element that does not go unnoticed: the train that Emily uses to get to Saint-Tropez. Luxurious, old, made up of several berths, the machine is very far from the usual standards for French travelers. Imagine a night train that looks like the Pôle Express. This gap even made Joël Giraud, Secretary of State in charge of Rurality, react. “Well, Emily in the night train may be exaggerating by going to Saint-Tropez …”, He wrote on his Twitter account.
