FLORIDA GIRLS
July 10, 2019  | By David Bianculli

Pop, 10:00 p.m. ET

 
SERIES PREMIERE: The characters and lifestyle from My Name Is Earl have a trailer-trash spiritual descendant in Florida Girls, a new comedy from Pop TV that’s basically about the type of women you might see, with blurred-out faces or speech, on any Florida episode of COPS. Lauren Chinn created this series, and stars as Shelby, one of a handful of twentysomething friends who live in a small Florida town with more goals and dreams than GEDs. As a summer TV diversion, especially to current or former Floridians, this series might hit home, as well as the funny bone. Oh, and the job, shown in the pilot, of wearing mermaid fins and swimming in a pool so that rube bar patrons can watch through “portholes” – a real thing. And for my money, the drinks are overpriced… For a full review, see Mike Hughes' Open Mike
