Yes, that put me off at first too! But I love how wholesome it is.

I am not on the spectrum but I have to say of any dating reality show it is also the one I related to the most! It helps that everyone on the show is chosen for their authenticity rather than their love of drama and/or specific makeup and styling choices.

I’m really curious what you mean by “brave”! I obviously like the show a lot but I don’t know if I would label it that way either. To me it just feels very interested in presenting history, especially a history that you might not get in schools (I certainly didn’t), with a a theme of tragedy throughout. Read more

Which episode did you watch? Have you tried watching it from the beginning? That’s usually the best way to start a miniseries. It’s not like Frasier, where you can just jump around.

I did! I really liked the knowledge and experience you shared (in this comment and the other one). I hope it shows up in the series in the next few episodes. I’ll probably mention your comments in my next recap as well! :)

I really like these comparisons, I just wish the episode had had the space to really focus on them! I felt like Bella and Shirley’s storyline derailed that slightly, but I also really liked learning about that storyline.

Hm, it’s more because I’m queer and I find it really hard to relate to a character that finds it hard to understand her queer son’s humanity. I guess I should’ve made that more queer, I mean clear.

Ah, thanks for pointing that out! For some reason I get their names confused even though I know they’re different people!
