Your weekend gem should belong to Netflix “Emily in Paris” created by Darren Star (“Sex and the City”). I promise you won’t able to stop, or even press pause, from the first episode to the last. In my case, I literally spent five hours watching the whole season on Saturday morning.

The series is a treat and amusing escapism. It’s all you can expect from Star’s work: fun, glamorous and extremely unrealistic.

Starring the fabulous Lily Collins , “Emily in Paris” is a travelogue and fashion tour into Paris. It’s fun and enjoyable to watch, yet it’s also lightweight, making the plot kind of forgettable somehow.

Nonetheless, Collins is the brightest star here on the screen. Her performance is part of the storytelling, and she illuminates the City of Light. “Emily in Paris” is Collins’ star vehicle.
