Consisting of six short and sweet episodes, The Chair is definitely one of the best binges on Netflix's platform. It's funny, it's romantic, it's smart, and most importantly, it has Sandra Oh as the brilliant new chair of the Pembroke English department!
As a witty, emotional show, it'll draw out all your feelings — here were some of mine as I watched it!
1.Wow, Sandra Oh, or Professor Ji-Yoon Kim, sitting down in her huge fancy office just gives off those major bad b*tch vibes with her power suit and flawless hair.
2.A note that reads "Love, Bill"? Who is this BILL?
3.Wow, so Bill is looking kinda rough. So rough that even his own daughter is telling him to get his sh*t together!
4.Bill feels like a bit of a basket case, but we can't blame him, right? Man's a widower...
5.Why are Ji-Yoon and Joan drinking coffee at the gym while staring at buff men?!
6.According to Joan, Bill worships Ji-Yoon, and I mean, same?
7.The flirting between Bill and Ji-Yoon is so real, my goodness. We are that administrator trying to look away (but also secretly shipping them so hard).
8.Oh no, the poor man just showed his naked late wife in the overhead projector...
9.How many times do people have to tell Bill to get his sh*t together?!
10.Did Bill just do the Nazi salute in class? This is going to be so bad...
11.Oh, I feel so bad for the babysitter getting asked super-invasive questions about body parts...
12.Ji-Yoon getting called "little" feels...racist.
13.It's Ji-Yoon's father calling Bill a crumpled man for me...
14.This scene is PAIN.
15.Ji-Yoon, Ju Ju, and Bill hanging out together at a bowling alley just feels RIGHT.
16.Bill is this thirsty even after getting his foot run over by a car?
17.Yeah Joan, pop off about how nasty Chaucer is!
18.Ugh, Bill is a MESS, but again, the three of them are so freaking cute together.
19.I can't with these two.
20.Oh, Ju Ju and Bill are so cute, but you know that cousin's birthday party is going to be messy.
21.This whole David Duchovny cameo is a masterpiece, y'all.
22.Oof. The administration sets Ji-Yoon up to fail, but Yaz makes a really compelling point.
23.BRB, Ju Ju just made an altar for Ji-Yoon's mom, and I'm going to CRY.
24.BRB, I'm crying again, just like Sandra Oh in the next scene.
25.The real one true pairing on this show is JI-YOON AND JU JU.
26.NOT THEM HAVING THIS STEAMY MAKEOUT SESH WHEN SHE NEEDS TO BOOT HIM FROM HIS JOB...
27.Honestly, it's a *relief* that Ji-Yoon doesn't have to deal with her job anymore. And look at her vouching for Joan!
28.The show ending with Vampire Weekend's "Oxford Comma," and Ji-Yoon and Bill bantering is kind of perfection.
