That was obvious.
This kid is going to have a very difficult time growing up. My heart goes out to her.
I won’t say it wasn’t forced, but I kind of appreciated some of the decisions they made. It was a little performative, I thought, seeing the Fab 5 gush over low-rider culture and commission a street artist to paint Deanna’s new office and present her with a new pair of hoops... but I definitely have some extended… Read more
Karamo actually has come out and said he haaatttteeesss the culture tag but the producers made him stick with it because it was the same as the first season. I think his preference was like life coach or therapist (hes a licensed therapist and social worker!) but they were like... nope. They also cut out a lot of… Read more
I agree, it felt super fake to me too. They have always been heavy handed with the wokeness and after school special vibe but this season was tooooo much. It seemed like they were forcing it when people just needed a makeover! The dance teacher did not GAF about being warmer with anyone. She just wanted to look good… Read more
I agree, that part was like right after he admitted to Karamo (and really for the first time to anybody) that he was experiencing depression. I don’t think he truly thinks they’re BFFs.
Yeah, I can kind of see that. It definitely felt like the other seasons were a little more low-stakes. Usually the reveals at the end are centered around a date night or family dinner or something instead of, like, hosting a fundraiser for your nonprofit.
Yeah, I didn’t know that specifically about him, but after two episodes, the “Culture” tag felt really wrong. He’s the Deanna Troi of the group, basically. But I get why they did it - “Counseling” or “Psychology” would probably feel too direct and uncomfortable for a lot of people. Maybe “Philosophy” would be a better… Read more
Full disclosure: I really like Tan and I think Antoni was maybe at his best/least obnoxious in season 4. But of the Fab 5, those two definitely struggle the most with calibrating their TV personas. In more relaxed interviews, Tan comes across as down to earth and personable, but I think he’s much less comfortable when… Read more
The “Did we just become best friends?” line was a reference to Step Brothers. I think it was more that after an intense moment, he was trying to introduce some levity by referencing a movie about how two people bond in a silly way. Really, he was deflecting more than he was connecting after their bonding moment.
