Why “The Bold Type” Must Go On Your Want To Watch List

Rayiah R.

If you haven’t started watching The Bold Type, now is the time to do it. The Bold Type is a new Freeform show taking you on the adventure of three young girls as they battle life and work. It has characteristics mirroring The Devil Wears Prada and Sex In The City. Each episode leaves you mesmerized with their weighty stories about self-expression, politics, equality, sexuality, religion and freedom. With a stunning 100% by Rotten Tomatoes, The Bold Type is taking television by storm.

Sutton, a personal assistant, is caught up in a affair with a member of Scarlet’s board of managers and is struggling to find a career for herself outside of her assistance. Jane, a former intern and new writer on staff at Scarlet, struggles with figuring out how to write content she’s proud of without digging too much into her own insecurities. Kat, the outgoing and unreserved social-media manager, finds herself falling for the lesbian Muslim feminist photographer, Adena, despite previously identifying as straight.

The Bold Type has proven to be a hilarious show that also has the gallantry to tackle serious and important topics. If The Bold Type keeps finding ways to make its characters, their friendships, and their aspirations as much compelling fun as the first couple of episodes have, I am defiantly in for the rest of the season.
