Good and Bad
So here’s what I gleaned from episode 1:
On the one hand, I definitely like parts of this show - it’s kinda fun. On the other hand - the lines, the script is so tacky and gah that it makes my skin crawl. I get goosebumps just thinking about it. It tries to be ‘touching’ but all I wanna do is cover my eyes so I can’t understand a word of what they’re saying. Even the acting is kinda over-exaggerated.
That being said, there’s something about it that still makes me wanna watch it…for now at least. I guess I just won’t take it seriously and will be making fun of the silly stuff as I go along. I don’t mean to be mean but I gotta get through this somehow.
