Emily in Paris season 3 is undeniably over the top. The fashion is extreme (cue Emily’s extravagant butterfly wings at Pierre Cadault’s party). The comedy is borderline offensive (see Madeline’s blatant disregard for French culture). And the spiderweb of relationships requires a 3D map to understand (Camille and Gabriel and Alfie—oh my!).
But if it weren’t for these factors (and the McBaguette), the new season would likely fall flat. Instead, it offers a mindless escape from reality you can’t help but binge-watch, despite the cheesy one-liners and unrealistic story lines.
Plus, Emily’s disastrous career situation will make you feel better about whatever you’re going through. (The scenic Parisian sites are just icing on the cake.)
