What follows are six episodes of funny, heart-warming and addictive viewing as Johanne spends 24 days trying to find a boyfriend.
It sounds bad, I know. But Home for Christmas takes a stale premise and makes it fresh. It flips typical rom-com traits on their heads.
It’s not that she can’t find a boyfriend. In fact, there’s plenty of options, actually, but Johanne’s sort of just… disinterested, or oblivious.
With the help of her roommate Johanna gets back into the dating scene.
She starts with speed dating, which is horrifically bad, and then succumbs to everyone’s last resort: A dating app.
We watch Johanne on a number of dates, and spoiler: They don’t go very well.
There’s an escape room date with a guy who has a clear aggression problems, a lovely-but-bland skier and a literal 19-year-old.
After a few – including the most cringeworthy double date with her parents you could ever imagine – Johanne is frankly, done with this sh*t.
