This is not a recommendation. SERIES PREMIERE: This new series, starring Britt Robertson, is very loosely based on the memoir of the same name by Sophia Amoruso, and is created by Pitch Perfect screenwriter Kay Cannon. So the snark is sharp here – and set a decade ago, this comedy series presents its central character as an abrasive person you’re supposed to like despite all the faults and frostinesss. We’ve seen it already, and better, in You’re the Worst, and already, and no better, in Selfie. But here, having Robertson’s Sophia doing or saying something awful, then asking herself why she’s so awful, doesn’t make anything more acceptable – much less more entertaining. But she does have good fashion sense, especially when it comes to vintage jackets.
