Even though I’m not the primary audience for these 2 comedies, here’s my take.

 

Sneakerheads

The title refers to the people who collect valuable sneakers. This show’s quartet is formed when a quietly-married father (Allen Maldonado) runs into an old friend (Andrew Bachelor, doing a watered-down Chris Tucker). They get involved in several shoe schemes that continually backfire, each one upping the stakes. The other 2 members are a woman with inside info and a clueless guy who’s just starting the game. The episodes clip along with saucy banter, a few star cameos and a zippy pace. However, what starts out fun soon turns into more predictable interplays that lose some of the initial fun punch. (Six 30-minute episodes) 2.5 out of 5 stars (2.5 / 5)

Emily in Paris

This is the latest from Darren Star (best known for Sex in the City). It stars Lily Collins as a wide-eyed social media expert who’s transferred to Paris. Her adjustments to a hostile, haughty work environment and lack of speaking French are ameliorated by a chummy new friend and several handsome men. It’s got a sparkling retro rom-com feel with regular montages of Parisian sites and Collins’ sweetly charming, continually-effervescent attitude. The supporting cast also boasts an assortment of entertaining types. Since it’s France, everyone’s outfits are fabulous. There’s no question that this is a signature Star project, which means it’s a lite confection with a winning cast and enjoyable situations. (Ten 30-minute episodes) 3.5 out of 5 stars (3.5 / 5)
