Selfie Is Secretly the Best Sitcom Pilot This Season

Jacob Clifton · 10/01/14 04:00PM

The much-discussed sitcom Selfie premiered last night on ABC, to a strangely high-emotion/low-content response. Gen X reviewers are befuddled, Gen Y is wary; tech and PR people are annoyed (although not all of them!) and misogynists feel validated. I would argue this means the show is doing exactly what it's set out to do: Explore some of our media-obsessed culture's most prominent conflicts, with compassion for both sides.
