Thus leading to the likely story of the series which deals with Eliza learning to dress and look more traditional and perhaps act like a lady, and Eliza in turn helping Henry become more fun and exciting.

Shallow, boring, and lowest common denominator.

That really really bad kind where each word and gesture she makes seems contrived as if she is thinking, now I should make this face or sound to act like I'm feeling this/that way.

The chemistry between the two leads and the supporting cast is very engaging.

(actually, it is deniable, but..) can't see "Selfie" lasting to long though, since the premise is so limited,as well as tired, but maybe 13 episodes will be enough, before everyone involved is bored, and moves on to new projects.

And again when I say it has an interesting plot, it's not one of those programs (so far as I know) that will have sudden or dramatic changes and climax's, on the edge-of-your-seat type shows.

The play has done a great job on recreating an intriguing concept from renowned playwright George Bernard Shaw - remodelizing a social personality disorder girl who craves for attention of others and dwells on her social networks with tons of millions followers on Internet, and got a messed up real life experience.

Karen Gillan plays a morally lose character that has a lot of room to grow and despite being an unlikable character to start off with its when she interacts with John Cho's character that you really start to see what makes this show entertaining.

The intriguing fact of Selfie is, every episode is like a life lesson Henry teaches Eliza.

while this show is basically unwatchable, it's kind of fun to watch.

A show has to be pretty bad when a network has paid for episodes to be taped that they must figure it is a greater loss to waste even a bad time slot.
