Erica’s life is a mess. She’s jumping from one temp job to the next, has no lasting relationships and she feels that she hasn’t accomplished anything in her life. One day, a mysterious man recommends her to see a therapist and hands her the address. Desperate to change her life, Erica takes the chance and finds out that the mysterious man is Tom, a therapist. Tom asks Erica to list all regrets of her life. A few seconds later Erica finds herself in the past, on a day she regrets doing something…
Being Erica (IMDb, Wikipedia) is a comedy drama about life, love, jobs and relationships spiced up with time traveling action. The show follows Erica who relives her regrets of her past which helps her getting more confident about current life. That clever basic story brings tons of funny, strange and awkward moments with it. Sometimes the show is a bit too much melodramatic and soapy for my taste, but the overall concept works great.
(Spoiler-Alert) Now a few words about one character in this show : Julianne. She’s a nightmare. I hate that character! At the beginning she’s the terrorizing, cold and bitchy boss of Erica, so the story hates Julianne like I do. Later on she and Erica become friends. Now the show tortures me with this awful character all the time. I hope Julianne gets hit by truck in the next season 😉
So far three seasons are out there. Unfortunately the show struggles to keep itself fresh. The third season was quite boring except for two episodes. I hope that eventual future seasons will be better than the third. Being Erica is a Canadian TV series, which means there’s room for more remakes; an UK and US remake are planned.
