‘Emily in Paris’ becomes most-watched Netflix show worldwide《艾蜜莉在巴黎》衝上Netflix全球收視冠軍 – Taiwan News

Since its premiere on Oct. 2, US comedy series Emily in Paris has caused a sensation across the world. The Web TV series, starring actress Lily Collins, tells the story of Emily, a young woman who moves from Chicago to Paris for a job, as she struggles both at work and in love while experiencing culture shock.

The show has topped streaming giant Netflix’s global chart and is the most-watched show in Taiwan. But the American perspective of the lead character has offended some French critics, who say that the “City of Lights” is not just about berets, croissants and cafes, and that Paris is almost “unrecognizable” in the show.

Interestingly, the rom-com series was created by Darren Star, the executive producer of HBO’s Sex and the City, and both tell the story of a young woman trying to survive in a big city unfamiliar to her. For many viewers, the new show is like an “ode” to the old one and is bringing back their good old memories.
