Even more puzzling: why is OP so invested in this show? Were they somehow involved with it at some point?
WTF is "Chad" on TBS supposed to be?
What a stupid show.
And why does a female get to play a 14 year old boy? I thought we weren't doing that?
Gay people play gay people, trans people play trans people, and MEN should play MEN.
So why does a female get to play a male? Oh, I forgot. They're special, and exempt from "the rules."
This show is crap. Hope it gets cancelled. WTF is "Chad" on TBS supposed to be?
This is BULLSHIT!
[quote] Chad was originally sold to and ordered for a series by Fox in 2016 titled Chad: An American Boy with the original concept about a "14-year-old boy in the throes of adolescence who is tasked with being the man of the house", with the original pilot written by Pedrad and Rob Rosell, but never went to production. In 2019, the show was picked up by TBS and ordered to a ten episode first season with the trailer being released on May 15, 2019, and the show is set to premiere on April 6, 2021.
You're right, R4.
What in the fuck is the point of having a 40 year old female play a 14 year old boy?
It's idiotic. WTF is "Chad" on TBS supposed to be?
Even females don't want to play females any more. WTF is "Chad" on TBS supposed to be?
[quote] “Chad” is an Arab name? Isn’t the character supposed to be Middle Eastern?
See the link at R5. WTF is "Chad" on TBS supposed to be?
[quote] Women really struggle to get good roles these days.
Bull. In this case, she (Pedrad) both wrote the role of "Chad," and is also playing the role in the show.
There's no excuse for a show like this.
Who thought it was a good idea to green-light this crap? They should be fired. WTF is "Chad" on TBS supposed to be?
Cancel this shit.
Nobody wants to see a 40 year old woman, playing a 14 year old boy. It's fucking creepy!
Can you imagine if a 40 year old MAN tried to play a 14 year old GIRL, in a sitcom?
That would NEVER in a million years be put on a major network.
This should not be, either. Talk about a double fucking standard! WTF is "Chad" on TBS supposed to be?
It really is hilarious that so many people here think that the "Chad" character is trans.
If the person who created this character truly meant for it to be a portrayal of a 14 year old Iranian boy, then she is a MASSIVE failure.
No one thinks she's a boy. Or even Iranian, for that matter. WTF is "Chad" on TBS supposed to be?
It's fucking bizarre. WTF is "Chad" on TBS supposed to be?
Cancel this fucking shit show.
NOW! WTF is "Chad" on TBS supposed to be?
Proof that trying to be WOKE, can still end up being a massive FAIL.
