Baby is an Italian Netflix show. I watched the first season when it came out last year and, while I didn't find it extraordinary, I was excited for the second season and finished it in about 2 days.



I did some research and the story is based on true events. Two teenage girls (ages 14 and 16) were found to be selling their bodies in the wealthy district of Parioli in Rome in 2014. Both girls said they came across the idea after searching "easy money" on Google. One of the girls (Chiara on the show) didn't need the money, she just liked being financially independent and buying things for herself. The 14-year-old one, however, (Ludovica) was apparently pushed further into it by her mom because they had financial issues.

It's a good series in my eyes and I like the fact that Netflix is releasing foreign, non-English-speaking content on their platform. Also, I love Chiara's (Benedetta Porcaroli) frame. She looks so tall even though she's 1.68m (5'5'') and I find her and Ludo (Alice Pagani) so beautiful.

I’ve watched both seasons and I’m definitely intrigued by the show but I feel like I keep waiting for something more interesting to happen - both seasons I felt ended a bit unresolved (not in a cliffhanger way, more of a lack of climax way). Regardless if they release another season I’ll probably watch - definitely prefer looking at Benedetta than most (if not all) of the American actresses on TV

I watched half of series 1 a while ago but stopped as I had too many shows on the go.
Is it worth picking up again?
