Hey guys! Let's make a series! How hard could it be?
Okay, full disclosure. I only watched the first episode. But even that
was a struggle.
When it's a gay-themed production, I'll put up with a lot of amateurism
if the story is good and the dialog is sharp. And I realize a series'
first episode will mostly--and necessarily--be an introduction to the
cast of characters and the story. But with this, the result for me was
a swift realization that I don't want to know any more about these
pretend people or their pretend problems. If I'm going to watch
something like this, it has to have some truth to it at some level.
Trust me, there is none to be found.
If you do not cringe at the performances or the dialog or the
direction, well, bless your heart. And if you can refrain from judging
a certain pair of eyebrows, well, you're a saint.
Think of HBO's series Looking. Then imagine an imitation version as bad
as it could possibly be. Voilà.
