  • Base-Breaking Character: Sophia Marlowe. Many viewers found her extremely irritating and obnoxious, while others argued that her character wasn't supposed to be perfect and still found her funny and likable in spite of her flaws.
  • Critical Dissonance: Critics generally had a low opinion of the show, but audience views were more positive. Case in point, on Rotten Tomatoes the audience score is 75%, while the critic score is only 35%.

  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic: One thing commonly criticised about the show was that Sophia, the main protagonist, could come across as this. She was intentionally written to be a flawed yet still interesting character, with her idiosyncrasies intended to be amusing or endearing. However, many viewers found her so-called quirks irritating or off-putting instead; they also felt her flaws tended to outweigh her positive traits or were so glaring, she came across as very entitled, self-absorbed and generally out-of-touch with reality, making it difficult for viewers to root for her or even tolerate her character. The controversy surrounding her real-life counterpart (as mentioned under Undermined by Reality on the Trivia page) did not exactly help endear Sophia to some viewers.
