Stream: GIRLBOSS (Season 1)

At the recommendation of a coworker, I decided to stream GIRLBOSS, the Netflix show based on the book #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso, the creator of Nasty Gal. Amoruso released her book on my birthday (September 29) in 2015, clearly a sign she was destined for greatness. 

I haven't read the book, but the Netflix show is produced by Charlize Theron (no big deal) and written by Kay Cannon. Cannon wrote the screenplays for Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2, and has written and produced countless episodes of New Girl and 30 Rock. She's a #GIRLBOSS in her own right. 

Actress Britt Robertson stars as Sophia. Robertson looks and sounds exactly like Ashley Rickards, the actress who plays Jenna on MTV's Awkward. It is uncanny how similar their movements, facial expressions and vocal diction and phrasing are. 

GIRLBOSS

As a character, Sophia is reckless and self-absorbed. She can't keep a job and she's an ego maniac. When the front door of her San Francisco apartment is papered with an eviction notice, she has to get serious about making some cash. She had already been selling clothes on eBay, but decides to dial it up a notch by styling photo shoots for the clothes and seeking out on-trend pieces from other vintage shops and estate sales. Her eBay store, which she names Nasty Gal, becomes an overnight sensation and shortly thereafter, her complete obsession. 

Sophia has four people who are close to her - her best friend Annie (played by Ellie Reed), her boyfriend Shane (actor Johnny Simmons), a young, aspiring artist named Nathan (played by Cole Escola) and his wine-happy mom. They all have to learn how to deal with the new, successful Sophia, who is surgically attached to her phone. 

GIRLBOSS

My favorite thing about the show is that it's set in the year 2006 (the year I graduated college). They have all kinds of references to that year - the episode of the O.C. where Marissa dies, those dreadful Nokia phones with their horrible ring tone (made famous by Love Actually), the Top 8 on MySpace and my favorite of all - the paper clip helper in Microsoft Word. 

Season one has 13 episodes and each is 30 minutes long. Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Episode 4: Ladyshopper99 - This entire episode is about Sophia getting a vintage wedding dress to a bride on time. She has to move mountains to get a stain treated, re-attach a bunch of rogue beads and deliver the dress after her car breaks down. She goes to all of these lengths just to avoid one negative review on eBay. 
  • Episode 5: Top 8 - In every episode up to this point, Sophia and her best friend Annie always say goodbye by exchanging the sentence, "I love you in case I die." In this adorable episode we learn the history of their friendship and the night they first uttered those words to each other. 
  • Episode 10: Vintage Fashion Forum - Have you ever seen the video of what a conference call would look like in real life? This episode is inspired by that video and brings to life an online forum of vintage retailers who are all bashing Nasty Gal. It's amazing and hilarious. 
  • Episode 13: The Launch - This is the season finale and it has everything a final episode should - suspense, romance, drama and an ending that leaves you wanting more. Sophia and Shane's story line was particularly real and honest. 

If you are looking for a new show to stream, GIRLBOSS is addicting. You will find yourself needing to know if Sophia will succeed and if so, at what cost. I really hope there will be a season two!
