The teens on the show aren't really teens. They're mostly in their 20s. I don't agree with what you're saying. There can be brilliant young actors and mediocre adult actors. I actually think it's because they cast the younger parts for their looks, and also because they usually do the "TV actor" underacting that's boring.

What is a wealthy/middle class suburban Texas town like r108? I’ve been to TX many times and each part feels very different from the next. Not to mention each town within a city.
Most shows or movies don’t get the atmosphere etc. right in shows set in the past. This is why I love Once Upon a Time in Hollywood so much. Tarantino really brought 1969 LA back to life. It felt and looked just like it. It’s incredible.
But also, this is why you should cast a young man from TX to play a Texan. Not some city boy from LA.

Everyone in this show sounds like they're from Glendale which is probably where they shot this shit anyway.
Terrible use of soundtrack too.
Using Dreams from the Cranberries as background music and not taking advantage of its power shows lack of vision. See My so-called Life for reference on how to use that song properly. As a matter of fact, many songs waste their power in this pilot, because they work as background music only.

Overall, I enjoyed the premiere although I sometimes had trouble keeping track of which timeline things were taking place in. I also felt like the main two girls were both generically pretty and sometimes slightly hard to keep straight. Though I'm sure that'll lesson as we get to know them better.
Regarding Jeanette seeing Kate at the VP's house, I'm guessing the mirrored basement hat Jeanette lingered in is actually two way mirrors concealing a secret room. Jeanette probably went down there while Kate was being held and Kate (not knowing the glass was two way mirrors) assumed she saw her when Jeanette really only saw her own reflection.

Need help keeping up with timelines? It’s easy simply based on how each girl looks or what Froyo is up to.
1993 - Jeanette is chubby and wears glasses with curly/frizzy hair. Kate has all blonde hair and is dating Froyo.
1994 - Jeanette now is more slim with no glasses and keeps her hair straight and it’s long. Kate has brown roots that show a lot. Froyo is now with Jeanette.
1995 - Jeanette looks like hell and now had Demi Lovato’s haircut. Kate has mostly brown hair. Froyo is now single and unhinged but trying to be there for Kate while wishing Jeanette dead, pretty much.

It seems to be a bit inspired by the tone13 Reasons Why-- though being summer, no one is in school. But it's a much cheaper-looking show - it seems like a much lower budget. 13 Reasons Why had a beautiful location (San Francisco area) and had amazing photography. This is somewhere in Texas but you can hardly tell. It could be anywhere. The cast overall seems less charismatic/talented to me, also.

Maybe you would enjoy it more if you stopped comparing it to another show, which has no resemblance to this one other than it being about teens.
One is a “who is telling the truth?” and “what really happened?” situation and the other was literally a group of teens figuring out and dealing with the consequences of one of their peers killing themselves.

It’s not about shutting down opinions, it’s about the fact that if you watched 13RW and you’re watching this, they’re not alike.
This is a lot closer to The Sinner or Secrets & Lies than 13 Reasons Why.
|by Anonymous||reply 316||05/01/2021|
The show has similarities to 13 Reasons Why because it cuts back and forth between time periods by using things like haircuts and other physical traits to let the audience know what time frame they are in. Jeanette even seems to be wearing the same ugly wig Hannah wore in 13RW. It reminds me very much of 13RW in that way. Also it has the Rashomon-like premise of people telling different versions of the same story, that is common to both shows. And of course it's about teens and parents. There may be other similarities, I don't know.

The fashion isn’t very early to mid nineties looking. Blunt cuts weren’t popular back then. Layered hair was all the rage. I haven’t seen one babydoll floral dress YET. No bodysuits, or wedge sandals....Doc Marten boots....yin and yang chokers....it just seems off. I am not loving the awful 90’s cover songs either. One more gripe, but her use of internet, when I was a teen in the mid 90’s nobody I knew had a computer in their room. Nobody even had a laptop with internet until 1996 in my circle of friends and it wasn’t the social tool bak then that it became in the early 2000’s.

R324, right? People didn’t talk like therapists back then. The lack of 90’s teenager slang is noticeable. I heard somebody say “awe, snap!”, but I don’t recall anybody saying that until the early 2000’s. I grew up in Cali where kids said stuff like, “sick”, “stoked”, “sweet”, “awesome”, “sucks”, the kids on this show sound too 21st Century.

Safe space isn’t a new term. They used it because that is what the therapist told them. They were using therapist words.
“Safe space” is not new. Therapists and Psychologists have always let you know you’re in a safe space.
The fashion actually is correct. That is what a lot of GAP and JCrew ads looked like in the early 90s. What r323 described was not the only thing people were wearing.
Welcome to reality where different people wore different things.
|by Anonymous||reply 326||05/05/2021|
So because you think the wardrobe is straight out of some 90s Gap/JCrew ads you saw, that invalidates 323? You have no idea what you are talking about with your random Gap/JCrew bullshit. Not everyone wore those brands. Somehow I doubt you were a teen in the 90s.
No one said "safe space" was a new word. The bartender at the gay bar (ep 3) also used that term. It wasn't a commonly used word in the 90s.

So, one thing that’s clear is he didn’t plan on kidnapping and confining Kate, there was that whole part about figuring into out their “roles,” and not really being prepared for her.

It was really jarring when the bartender referred to a "safe space". Maybe that was a therapist word, I don't know, I had thereapy in the 90s and no one used it to me. I agree the fashions don't look right. The Jamie character would be wearing much baggier, looser fitting t shirts, as that's what most boys wore - if you were a medium, you wore a large or extra large -- what about bowl cuts, as well? I also thought the computer was surprising, and the cell phones -- I don't know who used them, then, average kids didn't have them, though. When the kids used them in the movie Clueless it indicated "Beverly Hills Rich kid" .

R333 I was only talking about the cell phones, and I only used Clueless as a reference. In the movie, rich kids were using those big cell phones with antennas. People laughed when they saw it in the movie because it was a "Beverly Hills" reference -- "those spolied rich kids using cell phones like it's no big deal". I knew no one who regularly used a cell phone back then.
People are missing the point about "safe space" -- it wasn't a word in regular use in the mid-90s. Maybe if the therapist referred to it and the other character said "What do you mean by that?" it would have seemed more true. And the bartender using it just seemed anachronistic.

It goes into the 100s and it’s humid as fuck.

I really, really like this little show!! Haven’t been this excited about a new show since Cobra Kai started several years ago.
I do prefer it when the focus is on Kate, I find the actress and the character more compelling.
Now, if you’ll excuse me I’m gonna go grow up and educate myself.

I like the concept of the show, as this Gone Girl sort of tale. The clothing styles and use of internet does seem a bit off, though. Computers were already in use, but young people were not really using them to communicate at that time, even though crude chat rooms did exist. They used to have suicide and sexual assault phone lines for people in crisis back then. The hair and clothing feels to contemporary. Flannel everything, babydoll dresses, ripped jeans, goody barrettes, chokers, floral print, vans shoes, combat boots, those bodysuits that snapped at the crotch, THAT is what I remember people wearing in the 90’s.

In a weird way, the show reminds me a lot of a Scandinavian crime drama. It's partially the subject matter, but a bigger part is the differing color palettes for the different years. That was a really smart choice.

In Ep 4 we finally get good looks at Froy's nose. In the car with original GF.
We see it in profile and a rear shot. Froy has a "big" Roman nose. It's very nice. In all his fashion pics and social media "selfies" he is photographed strait on and it disappears. You'd never know its there. I don't think he likes it. If he likes his profile, why doesn't he ever show it? I think he looks fine in profile and more masculine. And I like his nose!

I'm not complaining about his nose, which I like. Yes, he has an aquiline nose and clearly he does not feature it in still photos. Some would say aquiline but it's a modest one not florid. Its more "Roman" because of the bump. It's masculine and I think he should feature it more.

R445 I just don't get what this is about. Froy's been on other shows. Most people who know him know what his nose looks like. He's not exactly camera shy, people call him the selfie king. Maybe do an image search? Not many people take selfies from the side, but he even does that.

The pic at R447 shows it. The pic at R446 does not. You seem to think this is a criticism of your beloved Froy.
The fact is the majority of his social media and press and fashion editorial pic, do not show is big handsome nose.

R449 It's that you're late to the party and think because you noticed someone on a current TV series, you discovered something. Then you selectively looked at a few selfies and decided he's hiding his nose, and that he doesn't like it. Its always been there, so I'm not sure what your point is.

When Kate is talking about Annabelle and it’s flashing images, is there one of a light skinned African American girl briefly interspersed? Maybe he brings a younger girl to the basement and that’s what makes her fight back and kill him? Her being comfortable around guns opens up the possibility that given the chance she might have shot him? There is bound to be a couple twists related to her discover and his death that will slowly be revealed and then flip back on themselves.

R475 That's nice. But whether the show is popular or not isn't going to influence me one way or the other. I don't think it's bad, I just find it contrived, not resembling real life very much and like I said, what is supposed to make me care about these people? I'm sure Chiara Aurelia is a nice person but I find her "nerd" makeup and performance incredibly contrived, almost laughable, and he 1995 persona almost as bad (1994 seems more natural). I fond myself being more interested in some of the supoorting parts, like the guys played by Allius Barnes and Nathaniel Ashton (Harley Quinn Smith gives me a headache, though).
