So I signed  up for Stan to stream shows and movies. It is a new player in the streaming biz but Netflix is still the front runner. However, Last week I came across this series in Stan that was produced by Starz ( remember Spartacus: Blood and Sand) called “The Girlfriend Experience” it has only one season that premiered last year. It has 13 episodes so it was an easy binge to watch. 

I wont do spoilers here but after watching this series, I thought that this show is a mirror. The hard reality of studying and paying for a good education, how internships can make or break your self esteem, the lack of genuine family connection, the loneliness behind the luxurious life. When we feel that emptiness, we try to seek everywhere and with anyone to seek pleasure even if it is just temporary. 

The GFE is not for those who have really high moral standards. They might just focus on one side of the main character and say that it is a wild show with loads of nudity. For me, It is beyond that.That is ifyou  have a broad mindset and not taking things always on its  literal sense. Watchout for the twists and powerplay of the main characters. 

If you are a new Stan sunscriber,and over 18 feel free to give this show a go.
