excruciatingly oblivious to its own self-referential "always play it safe"
WongFu has always played it safe and this is no exception. I only started watching it because others were hyping it on the internet.
It's the same old formula and there's no reason to change anything because they know their audience of teenyboppers. The "relationships" are paper thin soap opera tropes and about as melodramatic as some random girl/guy cry at some stupid misunderstanding but then will course correct and all is well.
For all its recognition of playing it safe for Phil's character, it sure isn't aware of its own irony of playing the same thing as all other WongFu projects.
