With Thanksgiving almost here, it’s time to eat some turkey, take a nap and binge a few shows during your break. Here’s why Dollface should be on the list.
Sometimes, it’s hard to imagine that there are any good shows coming out in the remaining month and a half of 2019. Thankfully, streaming services have spoiled us in a way as they’re constantly giving us new content to binge-watch. Most recently, Hulu dropped its new series, Dollface on Nov. 15 and it’s already been a huge hit.
If you’re looking for a new show to binge this Thanksgiving, it has to be Hulu’s Dollface. While there are a lot of modern shows out there, Dollface seems to take the cake in a lot of respects. It’s truly unlike anything else on TV right now. With all that being said, let’s get into some of the reasons why you should watch the entire series during your Thanksgiving break.
It’s only right to start off with the premise so you know what to expect. Simply put, the series follows our main character, Jules who is dumped by her boyfriend of five years at the beginning of the series. The rest of the series is basically Jules trying to reconnect with her old best friends and find out who she is without Jeremy. Additionally, the series also employs some fantastical yet realistic moments that all of us can relate to.

What makes Dollface such a worthwhile watch is that it’s incredibly relatable. Whether you’re dealing with a breakup, have a close group of girlfriends or a combination of both, this show will make you feel seen. The series does a great job of showcasing all of the different emotions Jules is facing without trivializing them or making her seem too “emotional.”
While the series focuses a lot on Jules, there is also a lot of time given to her friends: Madison, Stella, and Izzy as they’re dealing with their lives, too. No doubt you can assign all of the characters to someone in your friend group. Each of the characters is at different points in their lives and are dealing with vastly different obstacles, keeping us in suspense of what’s going to happen until the final scene.
In talking about the characters, I’d be remiss not to mention the extremely talented cast. Jules is played by Kat Dennings while her friends are played by Brenda Song, Shay Mitchell, and Esther Povitsky respectively. There are also appearances by Margot Robbie, Beth Grant, Shelley Henning, and Malin Åkerman. Every single member of the cast plays their role splendidly even if they aren’t all likable.
What makes the series a must-watch is how it depicts friendship. The show nails what it means to be friends in the modern world. When everyone is willing to pit women against each other, Dollface does the exact opposite. Instead, we see characters who love and appreciate their friends for who they are. That’s not to say that their friendships are all sunshine and rainbows, which is why it’s so relatable. We’ve all fought with friends but at the end of the day, you still love each other.
Dollface is only 10 episodes with each hovering between 30 and 35 minutes so it can be watched in a matter of hours. You can even watch it before Thanksgiving if you’re feeling ambitious. If not, you can stretch the episodes into the weekend. No matter what you choose, watching Dollface should be on your list of things to do during your Thanksgiving break.
