The volatile Emily Cooper and the actress she portrays Lily Collins, have something in themselves. Both are instantly adorable, a fact that was unequivocally proven when the show landed on Netflix more than a year ago. It can be annoying, screw up a lot, and get into trouble way too often. Her idiosyncrasies and vulnerable behavior make Emily who she is – a bundle of contradictions that never ceases to be a source of positivity. Whether you perceive this as true youthful steadfastness or simple old recklessness depends on what you think of the misfortunes of a 28-year-old woman exploring.

In the opening season, Emily and Lily’s casual charm had on Darren’s Star created show rubbed off, which, while criticized as shallow and narrow-minded, was a huge hit. It was more than a slight distraction. Season 2 of Emily in Paris is no different, although the protagonist is no longer what she was – an ingenuity abroad. She’s now a slightly more experienced Parisian who’s a bit toughened up and is therefore even more prone to pushing boundaries and throwing herself into awkward situations.

The world is going through tough times and she could definitely be the kind of purer, Make use of the unpretentious entertainment Emily offers in Paris. The on-going struggles of a Chicago girl trying to get her way on a French marketing firm and conflicted about her feelings for a friend’s boyfriend and another man she dates lead to a harmless recovery – and an urgent one needed escape. Put your worries aside, take in the generosity to ignore the love handles and immerse yourself in Emily in Paris S2. Chances are you’ll feel lighter on the other end.

Season 1 had already culminated with Emily in the crosshairs of Camille (Camille Razat), a major savoir-faire and one of her first friends in Paris, because she had slept with her boyfriend Gabriel (Lucas Bravo). In this section of the story that runs through the new season, the protagonist stumbles from one misstep to the next in her attempt to limit the damage. The task of repairing fences with a friend and reacting to the trembling of her heart is not child’s play.

In Emily in Paris S2, the sensory and the emotional vie for attention. As expected, the show is the pretext for a veritable fashion parade in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. None of the key characters ever appear with anything less than their finest, the outfits are always rounded off with well-coordinated accessories that stand out.

The emotions associated with the difficult decision Emily faces – should she have her dangerous affair continue with Gabriel or warm up to the enthusiasm of the Englishman Alfie (Lucien Laviscount, an addition to the cast)? – are not always quite as pronounced and easy to understand. The romantic triangle – there are two here – introduces a touch of whimsy, intriguing but not always convincing.

The sights and sounds of Paris are enhanced by the bright visuals and what Emily, her roommate Mindy (Ashley Park , as good as they did in S1) and dress the rest of the cast at work and play, well complimented. The feathers get disheveled all the time, but nobody seems to lose their composure, except on the occasional occasions. In fact, Emily has a blood shed scene in Paris S2, but don’t worry, the stains will go away fast enough.

The show spins through a series of marketing campaigns and round table pow-wows, friendly banter from workplace rivalries , a birthday party that ends messily, a restaurant opening that causes a bitter argument, a choppy trip to St. Tropez (where Emily touts trouble by neglecting French law and working over a weekend), a Chopard party on a bateau mouche , an extravagant fashion show in Versailles and even a heatwave.

For those who like French Nouvelle Vague and Balzac, there is a little bit of both. Emily’s colleague Luc (Bruno Gouery), who declares Paris the world’s cinema capital, takes her to “Truffaut’s Favorite Cinema”, Le Champo, to see Jules et Jim. The meaning of the menage a trois in the film has not escaped Emily and she wonders what Luc is up to.

On her 29th birthday, Luc, who is described by someone as a « mad scientist », gives her a copy of Balzac’s Le Cousin Bette. But that doesn’t end Emily’s struggle with the French language. She tries to write Camille an apology letter in French just to tie herself up.

There is more girl power than before this season of Emily in Paris. The triumvirate of Camille, Mindy, who finds love, a band you can work with as a street musician and a way out of « Madame Pipi » in a drag club, and the aggressive Sylvie (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu) is made by Madeline Wheeler (Kate Walsh) of the Gilbert Group, the US company that owns Savoir. She appears in the last two episodes and mixes things up for Sylvie, Emily, Savoir, and the show.

Emily has the chance of getting into trouble, especially with the vicious Sylvie, and Madeline’s arrival makes matters worse in Savoir only by widening the France-America divide the heroine has tried to bridge. It doesn’t help that she dangles precariously between a sloppy cook from Normandy and a polite banker from London, clueless as to what or who is best for her. But nothing seems to upset her.

That goes for Emily in Paris season 2 as a whole. It has its share of inconsistencies, but none of them make a big dent because the show goes as smoothly as the Seine without promising to take itself to a place of particular importance.

Season 2 of Emily is in Paris informed with so much fun, imagination and fashion that we fail to notice that it is actually just a feather-light affair that neither says much about the world of high fashion and luxury brands nor about the city of Paris as it does through the eyes of an American Midwestern girl seen. What it shows is embellished and passable pulp, which can not least be a decent weekend clock.
