Here’s a confession: I love watching awful people on TV. So Girlboss, loosely based on the best-selling book by Nasty Gal herself Sophia Amoruso, seemed up my alley. Sophia (played by Tomorrowland star Britt Robertson) is the epitome of everything people hate about millennials.
She’s rude (even when she’s at fault), she’s lazy (she doesn’t want the responsibility that comes with a real job and is constantly messing up at her job that pays her) and she’s reckless (always!).
I don’t want to root for Sophia ever: Not during Episode 1, not during Episode 13, not when I’m browsing through articles about Amoruso’s rise or Nasty Gal’s downfall.
The first time we see Sophia, she is having car troubles and inconveniently stuck on a San Francisco hill. She gets annoyed at the trolly behind her for telling her to move her car out of the way. Because of course it’s the trolly’s fault she’s stuck on a hill. She eventually gets out of her car and pushes it up.
