Have You Seen ‘The Wrong Girl’ Yet? | TV Talk

untitled
I want to preface this blog by apologizing yet again for my absence over these past few weeks. Life was hectic and although I continued to feel inspired to write, I just didn’t have the time to write.  But I’m back and I’m here to hopefully convince you to tune into a brand new Aussie TV dramedy next Wednesday at 8:30pm. 

'The Breakfast Bar' team. Sunrise or The Today Show have nothing on these guys.

The Wrong Girl premiered on TEN last night and it was one of my favourite first episides of a new series that I have seen in YEARS. Adapted from Zoe Foster Blake’s novel of the same name, The Wrong Girl is everything I have been needing in my life from a TV series – humor and heart.

Zoe Foster Blake’s best selling novel has become a bright, fun new Aussie dramedy series.

 

 

To give you a short overview of the series (without giving anything away), The Wrong Girl follows morning TV show The Breakfast Bar producer Lily Woodward (played by the perfect Jessica Marais – this woman can do no wrong) as she navigates her way through life’s ups and downs.

With her for the ride are her best friends Pete and Simone, who are there to support Lily when her attempts at making advances in her career turn to dust and she tries to get on the good side of Jack Winters, a charismatic chef who has been offered a segment on The Breakfast Bar but quickly turned it down after a jokingly-rude email written by Simone is accidentally sent from Lily’s phone.

Then there is the tension between Lily and BFF Pete, who may or may not want to take their friendship to a different level (there may be a kiss that helps them decide this), with disastrous results. Not to mention Lily’s parents who seem to have her best interests at heart, but can’t seem to get along with each other even for one dinner.

What I loved about the premiere episode was it introduced Lily as a character who was incredibly relatable. Lily is goofy yet incredibly driven to succeed. She loves her friends, yet won’t back down during a fight. I saw a lot of myself in the character of Lily, as I am sure many viewers did.

For a first episode (which we all know can sometimes fall by the wayside at times), the performances and plot have really impressed me and I know that I will definitely be tuning in next week for more.

You can catch last night’s episode of The Wrong Girl on the TenPlay app (trailer below).

Make sure you tune in for episode 2 next Wednesday at 8:30pm (after The Bachelorette) on TEN.

I’ll see you then!

What Would Carrie Say?

We all have a little bit of Carrie Bradshaw within us. The woman who is a hopeless romantic, but also incredibly weary of her heart. The woman who relies on her close girlfriends to get through life’s heartbreaks. The woman who would much rather buy a new pair of shoes than save money for rent…we all have been one of those women.

Carrie spoke many words of wisdom during Sex and the City’s 6 season run. Although we didn’t agree with everything she said, her words and life experience still resonates with women everywhere. Because even though it was ‘just a show’ and Carrie was ‘just a character’…the words were real. The words still belong to all of us.

Life Lessons With Lauren Conrad

I have a confession to make: I have recently been re-watching the iconic late 00’s reality series ‘The Hills’ after work each day. Yes, I agree that the show was clearly scripted at times and downright tacky other times…but there’s no better feeling than watching supposed ‘reality’ show about pretty people who’s lives seem to have much more drama than my own. I like to throw a glass of wine in the mix to really enjoy what is definitely one of my guilty pleasures!

One of my favourite things about ‘The Hills’ is the amount of times main star Lauren Conrad has said something, followed by a resounding “YES, GIRL!” from me on my couch. No wonder the woman has become an entrepreneurial megastar – she seems to know exactly what I am thinking!

Lauren had so many memorable one-liners (or, as I like to call them, Life Lessons) from “The Hills” and I thought I would share them with you:

I feel like Lauren is that girl that everyone goes to for relationship advice, but never really had a proper relationship each time she was asked – probably because she was so focused on her other friends’ drama!

Thankfully Lauren got married last year – true love DOES find us all eventually!
