Love the dark humor. Especially the opening scenes, from the first three episodes, of the girl giving birth and Naomi freaking out, because she has no clue what to do (like, when she keeps trying to get water into the kiddie pool thing with her bare hands). Arianna, who says the most inappropriate things (and insists it's ok because she has two gay dads), is my favorite.

While there is plenty of teen angst drama, it doesn't take itself as seriously as, say, Euphoria, Grand Army, or We Are Who We Are.

There's the scene in the first episode where, at the party, Nathan leans his head on Chester's shoulder, and it's like Chester has turned so butch with confident swagger having his arm around Nathan's shoulder'n all. It mostly happens when we "see" Chester through Nathan eyes. Like, when Nathan watches Chester at the water polo match.

r43 remy has a big dick and is a 'Dom top' (eyeroll) who will litterally fuck anything as he is a narcissist - so yeah, he gets ass and pussy all the time. And while he is actually naturally quite fem which he tries to hide (unless its for woke points on twitter), he isnt swishing around like justice's character is. That also makes a big difference.

Anyway I get over 'queer' shows written by women. Its too preachy and 'empower fem gays, but demonise cis gay men as problematic' and female characters 'im sooooooo qweeeeer even though I have a boyfriend uWu'. Push bi shit also which is just tiresome.

Woman really dont understand gay men, despite at times feeling like they want to skin us and live as us ( a la gottmik of RPDR fame)

I read this in a review and completely agree:

"The use of technology — via Instagram, Snapchat, porn, and texting — is one of the show’s stronger points, which is the least a show about Gen Z should get right. So much of the show happens over text that you’d miss a lot if you looked away for a second, which certainly feels authentic to the way we live now but doesn’t exactly make for compelling television."

All of that really is the way people live today - people live on their phones. But, phone sequences are just oh so boring on television.

I just want to say how much I’ve been loving HBO/HBO Max. They got my attention during Game of Thrones, then Chernobyl, and my favorite guilty pleasures, Euphoria and Succession. We Are Who We Are was a weird interesting show shot in Italy. Then I had Industry which felt like a live letter to London. Made me miss that city so much.

HBO/HBO Max has constantly left me entertained. It’s one streaming service I’m happy to pay for.

I’m also loving how much gay content they squeeze into these shows. I have no idea who’s running HBO but they are going balls to the wall on this. The new generation is going to be flush with so much inclusive content. At first I rolled my eyes but now I’m just sincerely proud to see more than one quality gay adjacent show. HBO Max alone has dropped about 3 in 2020 alone. We went from barely getting a show like Looking off the ground to one gay show after another. I know they may not call themselves gay but compared to what we had 5-10 years ago, this is some progress.

I’ll check this out this weekend. Thanks OP!

It is funny how hard the PR team is pushing Justice as some brilliant acting phenom when his credits so far include Jurassic Park movies (sequels or spin offs I think), Pokeman TV and lots of short films - not exactly on the academy awards fast track. He has given several interviews where he comes across as someone who is trying very hard to be profound but really just rattles off banalaties - the "I never came out because I was never in" is a) an aphorism older than he is and b) is not true in his case - he was fine with having stories about him dating girls in the teen celebrity rags and it took a BLM protest to prompt him to make an IG post about him being black and queer. Although he denied it in a Daily Beast interview, he probably was motivated more by the speculation he would have and questions he would face promoting this role. And of course, queer can mean anything or nothing although at least he is dating a guy now (who knows if they are still together because he still avoids the matter entirely in his SM presence - though he wasn't nearly as mum on the matter when he was dating a girl as recently as 2 yrs ago (they made their hetero relationship IG official) Finally, after making such a big deal about being "out" he then falls back on the tired hollywood trope about actors absolute right to closet themselves and some inalieable right to privacy. Can't have it both ways....

r98 The last 10 minutes of the last episode was not a good sign - Justin character went from a supposed sophistication to the worst version of the smitten teen who thinks that he and his guidance counselor were destined for eternal bliss nevermind the statutory rape and the borderline psychotic grindr stalking. Then he pulls the fire alarm and whales like a wounded animal because bitches be crazy amirt? The worst cliches of tv teen dramedy with double the banality of the worst cliche of gay tv teen dramedy - guess having a teen girl as a co-writer has some downsides but at least they got the woke vocabulary right.

I was actually starting to like the show and hope the writers surprise us with clever solutions to the seemingly unavoidable train wreck coming. Or it could be a series that literally jumps the shark midway through the first (and most likely only) season.

PS - even if it crashes and burns it will still be better than Lucas plotless HBO wet dream that made me realize finally that Luca is a hack who makes pretty pictures with no soul.

The main character is gay. A main character is a lesbian. A main character has gay dads. A main character is a male-leaning bisexual (or possibly gay himself). A main character is a bisexual woman. The guidance counselor is gay. They just introduced another new gay boy and potential love interest for the gay main character.

"The character who got the girl pregnant is a trans man." - Uhm, and how did that happen, r120, since transman don't actually produce sperm and therefore can't impregnate anyone?

It is getting better, the actors seem to have found their character’s voice.

Sam Trammel has aged deliciously, I wonder if he still looks as good naked as he did in Trueblood.

I should have wrote the actor is a transman (biologically born female) playing cis male.

The show is making a valiant effort in keeping Sam involved through his counseling of Riley but without the Chester storyline, Sam serves no purpose. Luckily all the other adults are interesting. I love Greta's aunt and Arianna's dads.

How did that happen, r131? Trans complain when "cis" people play "trans" characters. Surely they should also be opposed to trans people playing "cis" characters.

So glad that Justice Smith didn't shave for the role. Give me that hairy body.

Loved the series and I hope it gets renewed.

So who showed up for Chester at the end?

I assume it's Sam the counselor.

After reading this thread (and replying at r221) I decided to watch before it’s gone from HBO Max. It’s such a letdown from the book, but it really does have some good scenes. I never thought about it, but the poster above is correct…the music is wrong. There should have been more of that KROQ music. The Bangles song is awesome, though, and even Goin’ Back to Cali by LL Cool J works.

Let me guess, r140 - the comment was meant for the Less Than Zero thread?

That’s what I thought too, because how would Nathan or Bo know he’s up there? Unless I missed something.

Damn that actually sucks. It was actually a good show and I enjoyed the gay representation.

I expected its cancellation but still hate the news.
