The bold type needs some bold hype.
An amazing show for anyone, but especially young women and teenagers, and it's one of a kind in my eyes. Light-hearted yet thought provoking, it's a show about young women in their twenties that is very empowering. About friends who work through their differences, don't always agree but don't fall out and mostly, finally a show for young people not about backstabbing, lying and boys! The three main characters go after what they want in relationships, life and work and navigate the issues that come with that. And there is the added glam of fashion and NYC. There is drama but not eye-rolling, ridiculous nonsense that comes with most teen drama shows and after I watch it I always feel ready to hit the day with some empowered boldness. And if that isn't a good outcome from a show, I don't know what is. WATCH IT TODAY. PLEASE KEEP FUNDING EPISODES.

So-So
While subject matters can be interesting in The Bold Type, Season 2 and some insights bold and funny, the whole thing stays relatively superficial and weak. Various deeply unrealistic events and characters force the viewer to retain judgment so as to enjoy the rest of the show. Some unforgivable points, however, include over-privileged twenty-five year old Kat's high rank in the company thanks to an outrageous string-pulling which does not stop her from playing the minority card, and Jane's extremely judgmental attitude, constant self-wallowing and inability to look further than her navel. That would not be so enraging if what she does was simply regarded for what it is — self-absorbed blogging — and certainly not for what it can never be — journalism.

Two remarkable characters though are Sutton and Adena. Adena is refreshingly full of emotional intelligence and Sutton is a talented, hard-working and profoundly good person.

Some characters more likeable than others
I love this show but second season jane is really judgemental and self-righteous. I liked her better when she was willing to listen to different people's stories and show them as accurately as possible even when she didn't agree with them. Honestly Sutton is probably the most relatable character which is saying somwthing because she gets to touch Balenciaga bags and hangout with important people in her twenties while living in new york with only one roommate.

An important and positive example of what taking responsibility for you life looks like!!
this show feels like a massive step forward to me. I have loved seeing explicit examples of women in power in business, overcoming battles, really listening to each other in an conflict/disagreement and seeking to understand one another (not disconnect), communicating clearly and assertively, and seeing so many modern issues explored in such a positive way. Thank you to the creators of this show. I am 27 and admittedly usually feel a bit annoyed by all the focus placed on inequality. I feel like this show does exactly what is needed - to show people not just that there is inequality (or a problem) in whatever form, but where to go from there; what it looks like to stand up and do something about what you believe. An important and positive example of what addressing the things you care about looks like how to take responsibility for you life! So important!!

Loved Series 1. Love Series 2 as well. Next?
The characters grew during the second season, and yes, Jane became horribly judgmental both about one character's shotgun and about her own not getting a job she wanted 'because they said they were going to diversify' I did note that she was able to be persuaded on the diversity issue but not the gun issue. It's a shame and as one character suggested, if she'd been as good a writer as she's supposed to be, she would have written about her own attitude and what was wrong with it.

I liked the way Kat and Adina's relationship developed (and Sutton and Richard's too for that matter) and I look forward to seeing where that goes in season 3. I still wish I'd had a boss like Jacqueline though, she was awesome, so for that matter was Oliver.

I look forward to series three

What an amazing show!
What an amazing show! Highly representative of the struggles we all face in our early 20's trying to 'make it', the beauty of sisterhood and female empowerment, love sex and all its surprises all whilst giving us the inspiring fashion fix we all need post-Carrie in SATC. The Bold Type is a much-needed show for young women today. I do so hope it continues to be renewed.

It's a sensitive but mainly very fun show that has you rooting for these gals tryna kill it in their 20s in NYC...
Absolutely wonderful show, hits the mark completely and is really based around the friendships of the three women. Passes the Bechdel test. As well as dealing with a number of issues really well and those under representation. The lesbian love story arc explores so much...it's done so beautifully. It's a sensitive but mainly very fun show that has you rooting for these gals tryna kill it in their 20s in NYC... Obvs its a telly show so its smoothed over some and of course has lashings of glamour...(its not trying to be gritty! - it's a show about a fashion and lifestyle magazine!) Perfect escapism. But also very relatable.
