This show is vain, problematic and represents something very very negative. Firstly it fat shames; it basically says because the lead was overweight she held less value in society and to her loved ones. They made her smell, sweat excessively, break chairs and act clumsy. It's sickening! And NOT TRUE
She WAS beautiful to begin with, why must they put a disgusting emphasis on plastic surgery?! Couldn't they have kept the lead and given her a makeover (new wardrobe, flattering hair and makeup). Does anybody remember the backlash the netflix show Insatiable got for following a similar plot? Well this show is a hell of a lot worse.
I get it the story is FUN - I do like the revenge aspect, the two leads chemistry ect. But I can't get over the bizarre message they are conveying, you CAN be beautiful, worthy of a partner, worthy of love and success regardless of your weight. Plastic surgery is a big decision and it's conveyed so unrealistically in this mess of a show - apparently it not only changes your face, teeth, hair, VOICE & body but it also does all with NO surgical scars. Ugh. What a sad world this is becoming.
