We won't talk about Sex and the City – you've already seen it.


Comedy, romance | 4.02 out of 5 | 1 day 3 hours 34 minutes

Younger and Emily in Paris share the same creator – Darren Star, best known for his work on Sex and the City. That's why this series has so many recognisable elements of all of Star's shows – fancy clothes, female friendships, a determined protagonist and plenty of romance.

"I wish I looked like that in my 40s! (well, someone had to be the first to write it:) The series so far is cute and touching) Even somewhat motivating: most young people are given everything ready-made, and here is a grown woman ready to start from scratch" – Inelgerdis.

"If you (like me now) are looking for a light and yet not dumb series, having reviewed all sorts of shows to put in the background – this is a good one!" – aziza_funky.

"I want to note the integrity and vividness of the series – nothing superfluous, just the key points necessary for the story, its watchability and development. The 22-minute format is very successful here".

The Bold Type

Drama, romance | 4.35 out of 5 | 1 day 8 hours 58 minutes

Imagine Emily working in journalism instead of marketing and the show is set in New York and you get "The Bold Type".

The show's plot centres on three friends Jane, Kat and Sutton, who live in New York and work for fashion magazine Scarlet. The series is about their friendship and search for themselves, as well as their relationships with young people, bosses and the fashion world.

"I was initially hesitant to watch the series because the first episode was a bit boring but oh my god this is an AMAZING series. It's very kind, positive (naive, but I think that only adds to it), interesting and romantic. It also reminds you of so many important things in life. So highly recommended)," id257885365.

"A kinder and more modern version of The Devil Wears Prada at first feel, but immediately wins over with its easy delivery, music and familiar faces, and also the characters in the main characters are immediately apparent, which makes them easy to remember. And it raises very important themes that are hard to find in most shows," Eclipse12.

"This series is so important to watch, especially for all the young girls, but I'm sure the older generation would find a lot to enjoy as well, as the world is changing rapidly. I fell in love with the show within a week." – Eclipse12.

Plan Cœur

Comedy, romance | 3.66 out of 5 | 7 hours 1 minute

'Emily in Paris' disliked some viewers because of its overly stereotypical portrayal of Paris. If you weren't keen on it either, you'll love The Love Plan, also a romantic comedy about finding love in France, but filmed by the French.

"Awesome series, watched it in one evening) The characters are all interesting, lots of funny moments," – MariaDisney.

"The series is light and sweet, the plot is not new – 3 girlfriends, confusing couples relationships, love triangles – we've seen it all before and more than once. But it's all presented unobtrusively, with a touch of appropriate humour. The series is about love, friendship, overcoming quarrels, finding yourself", – oxana0710.

Hart of Dixie

Comedy, drama, romance | 3.89 out of 5 | 2 days 6 hours 28 minutes

Zoe Hart, as Emily, finds herself out of place when she has to move to another city because of her job. The series, like the Darren Stahr show, is great for a brief distraction from the sadness of everyday life.

Young Dr Zoe Hart had planned to follow in her father's footsteps and become a heart surgeon after graduating from medical school. But when her dreams come crashing down, the girl accepts an offer from Dr Harley Wilkes and moves from New York to a small town in Alabama to work with Harley. When she arrives, though, Zoe discovers that Wilkes has passed away and left her his half of the medical practice in his will.

"I don't know why this show doesn't have very high ratings. For me, it's one of the best series. It's very kind, light, cosy. Don't look for logic, twists and turns and stuff like that. Such light series for a break should be too. It's just small-town life (a bit grotesque), which you can watch as if from the inside. Disconnecting from your problems, worries, relaxing.

I go back to it periodically, revisiting it in parts/episodes/parts/seasons to suit my mood. Yes, it might not be perfect, but again, you just have to switch off and enjoy it! It's forever in my heart)," – Annetinka.

"A beautiful, utterly light and sincere finale. Goodbye, the warmth and light of sunny Bluebell, goodbye, the charming swagger of your inhabitants. Goodbye, the CW's most lampooned and soulful series," Nikquest.

"Nothing brilliant, deep meaning or secret knowledge in this series, but it's fun, dynamic, light, positive, bright! You flick episode after episode in parallel with the work… Love triangles, secret relationships, petty intrigues, localized disasters, passions," – Innuleska.


Drama | 3.7 out of 5 | 7 hours

Like Emily in Paris, Sweetbitter is about what it's like to be a young girl in a new city where you know no one. Admittedly, don't expect the lightness of a Lily Collins comedy from this series – it's much darker.

Arriving in New York from Ohio, 22-year-old Tess gets a job at the famous 22W restaurant right downtown. She quickly plunges into the abyss of drugs, alcohol, love and sex, trying to learn how to navigate this enticing yet violent world she finds herself in.

"It's a terrific series. The main character is very charming, you fall in love with her from the first minutes. A life story: moving to a big city, finding a job, new acquaintances, nuances in work, different destinies, and finally nightlife – bars, partying, alcohol and drugs.

Each character is thoughtful, with their own baggage behind them, it makes you want to get to know more of each one. It's interesting to dive into the world of the restaurant business, to learn any nuances and life 'behind the scenes'. I like the portrayal of New York City as seen through the eyes of the people who live there. You watch the episodes in the same breath, you don't want it to end at all" – inspireluna.

"I watched it in one breath, really, but I still don't understand what I like about it. The picture? It's there, but not to say it's wow. The acting? The usual good acting, nothing over the top. It's like the series really is from the "It's OK to watch" category, but for some reason it was very interesting, like when the series is 5+. Maybe just because it's very believable overall, and inspires some hope even a little" – SidLight.

Gilmore Girls

Comedy, drama, romance | 4.27 out of 5 | 4 days 13 hours 39 minutes

A series for those looking for another light and enjoyable show to escape the real world for a couple of hours.

A 32-year-old single mother named Lorelai lives with her 16-year-old teenage daughter Rory in the small town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut. Stars Hollow is not far from Hartford, where Lorelai grew up, but from which she fled when Rory was very young, refusing to marry the girl's father, despite the fact that Lorelai's wealthy and powerful parents wanted her to.

"How to live and not cry. Watched the whole series in a fortnight tops, every episode is like an anti-depressant. Love that every character is thought out and not just glimpsed in the background, but really adds to the full picture. The series is incredibly warm, vital, fun, loving," northways.

"What a touching series to the core. No, seriously, it's rare when you watch it and not just believe the characters, but believe that they really do live in this town, endure the ups and downs, speak their own thoughts. I'm really going to miss these unique characters. I love "Gilmore Girls" for the comfort, the interesting dialogue, the humour, the warmth and the lessons of being able to enjoy the little things. Very glad they made a sequel," – MariaDisney.

"You can feel the good atmosphere of the series from the first episode! And the cast reinforces the interest! Watching young Jared Padalecki, Alexis Bledel and Melissa McCarthy is a lot of fun," – id18379359.

Dix pour cent

Comedy | 4.37 out of 5 | 20 hours and 48 minutes

For those who were drawn to the series Emily in Paris, it was Paris. Darren Starr's show has been heavily criticised for its unrealistic portrayal of life and work in the French capital. "Ten Percent is a much more honest project in this sense.

Andrea, Mathias, Gabriel and Arlette work at the talent agency ASK and try to combine personal and professional lives. But it gets even more difficult for them when the founder of the agency dies suddenly. Now the four agents will have to fight to save ASK by finding decent work for their celebrity clients.

"I have a rather complicated relationship with French serials and films, with French reality and life in general, but what I noticed is that if you watch this series in the original with subtitles, it's even moving. Usually it takes time to get used to the characters and start to empathize with them as if they were familiar, but here it all worked out differently – empathy and participation already in the second series. That's my point: if you have the opportunity to watch this series in the original, take advantage of it!" – golikovasm.
