    Selfie

    I didn't see a posting for this.. and I was curious as to if anyone else watched it. I did, and ended up loving it. I think it is (within its humorous look at it) spot on with what society has become. Also found it rather refreshing its not one of the normal recycled comedy show formats. I just added it my DVR

    Cast

    Karen Gillan as Eliza Dooley
    John Cho as Henry Higgs
    Da'Vine Joy Randolph as Charmonique Whitaker
    Allyn Rachel as Bryn
    David Harewood as Sam Saperstein

    Same here. I thoght I would hate this show, but found it surprisingly funny. I do like John Cho.

    Yup--I was reading a story about this... apparently only after the show planning was well underway did they realize they were making a modern day Pygmalion/My Fair Lady, so that's when the names came in. They didn't start it that way.

    I think the reason many viewers didn't think they'd like this show was that the initial commercials were SO bad. I adore Karen Gillan and like John Cho, which is why I even gave the show a chance. I was happy to see them make changes to the commercials that were, I think, a much more accurate reflection of what the show really is like.

    Love this show I saw it before it premeired on demand. I think it's mostly the name many people hated. It's kind like Black_ish that it's offending people. But just as with Black_ish I love chemistry of the cast.

    I was going to post about this also but I got distracted. I
    enjoyed it far more than I thought I would. I also watched the one that came on after which had an interesting premise.....but was a little harder to follow and the characters were not quite as interesting.

    The name of the show was a definite turn off for me as concept of selfies. I tried it out because of John Cho and found that it wasn't want I thought it was going to be and I enjoyed it.
