"Selfie" review by Suzanne
Premieres September 30 on ABC

I didn't expect to like this show much because the previews made it sound pretty dumb.  However, it's a fairly clever show. The first episode was pretty cute, and it made me laugh. I hope it does get funnier, though. I enjoyed the characters and the situations, but there need to be more laughs.

The show is loosely based on the play "Pygmalion", which is also the play that "My Fair Lady" was based on.  The show is about a self-centered woman named Eliza who spends way too much time on the internet. When things don't go well for her, she asks Henry, a guy who works with her, to take her under his wing and help her be a better person.

It's really cute, and the actors do a great job. Karen Gillan, who was so awesome on "Doctor Who" for quite a few years as Amy, is Eliza. John Cho plays Henry, who's a bit stiff. Eliza helps him to loosen up, too. Cho has been in many great TV shows and movies, including the Star Trek movies, the Harold & Kumar movies, Sleepy Hollow and more.

You can watch the pilot yourself now for free on, so check it out! I'll definitely be watching the show regularly.  The show faces stiff competition against NCIS and the new superhero show "The Flash" as well as "The Voice". FOX's new reality show "Utopica" also airs during that time, but I doubt that will do much.

We need more episode guide recap writers, article writers, MS FrontPage and Web Expression users, graphics designers, and more, so please email us if you can help out!  More volunteers always needed!  Thanks!
