I can't stop watching Transcendent. It's really terrible. I said i wasn't going watch it, but i am. I feels a lot lik it's a horrible stereotyping of trans women.

even if it is I can't stop watcing it.

i was going to watch it but it seemed terrible for mentioned reason(s). good to know i saved some time.

MyOneAndOnly 01-10-2018 07:53 PM

it's like watching a slow motion train wreck


also, like most of these reality shows it's totally scripted. while it's supposed to follow the performers at Asia SF several of the women on the show doen't even work at Asia SF. They were brought in specifically for the tv show. There's a storyline that involves one of the girls constantly flirting with a body builder meat head greasy guy, named Rico. In real life his name is Doug and he's an actor.

i really hate how all the trans women on the show are depicted as have all the requisit cis female proclivities. They love fashion and being covered in make-up and they are all interested in dated only men. They basically make them NON QUEER. I hate that.

But i can't stop watching



You can't really see it in the show, since almost non of it is filmed in Asia SF. But the actual club is located in what is better described as a corner pub. It's TINY. If you go there you'll find that it's really a small restaurant. They make their money off overpriced nasty ass food for tourists. Every 15 min one of the servers gets up on the bar and does a lip sync routine. They also do a lot of slutty theatre at the tables while they're serving. If a table has men at it that seem freaked out and/or drunk they'll offer free drink shots, but the guys will have to pick them up with their mouths from the server's clevage. They don't show any of this on the TV Show.

BUMP for GLOW

Everyone should watch this show, it is really really good.

Alison Brie should be in more stuff, damn she's great. <3

MyOneAndOnly 07-25-2018 06:57 PM

GLOW is really good. The second season is great.

MyOneAndOnly 07-25-2018 06:59 PM

I absolutely adore the show "Pose." It's so amazing. Gives me all the feels.

The first two seasons were interesting. The third was meh.

I can't watch it now, though, after the Tambor revelations. Fuck that asshole.

smashingjj 07-25-2018 08:14 PM

oh wow, I'm not sure what happened but I am also not sure I want to know

I think I stopped watching during the first series. I liked the premise but it's hard for me to keep watching if none the characters are really worth rooting for

like girls, I like that series, but all of them, except *maybe* Adam are unsympathetic

smashingjj 07-25-2018 08:15 PM

IN MY HUMBLE SUPERIOR OPINION

run2pee 07-25-2018 09:19 PM

Was watching thru the original unsolved. Good sweet god the haircuts of the ppl talking with their heads about their missing twins, one given to nuns the other joined the circus. The updates! The mysteries of ufos mary and ghosts

But they changed a lot including, critically, the theme song in season 7. Without the theme song, it’s lil hard to get pumped good/hard for the mysteries

Fonzie 07-25-2018 09:22 PM

Has Wellington Paranormal started anywhere (apart from NZ yet)?

LaBelle 07-25-2018 09:23 PM

I've been meaning to give Pose a watch.
Too many things to see, too little time.

Watching Jian-Yang is like a balm for my soul.

Did you watch it? I haven't seen it anywhere, yet.

LaBelle 07-25-2018 09:40 PM

Downloading rn.

Fonzie 07-25-2018 10:24 PM

Yeah, tv two on Wednesday nights. Old-Skool telly

Coincidentally started watching that just now.

The term 'brogrammer' alone is very promising

fuzzyroes 07-26-2018 12:03 AM

I used to love that show, but the last season without Erlich was sorta lame:cry:

LaBelle 07-26-2018 10:01 AM

A super underrated show that unfortunately almost everyone slept on and it got cancelled is UnReal, the final season just came out on Hulu and goddamn is that an amazing show.

It's about the backstage of a bachelor-style tv show, and it has some of the best characters I ever seen in a tv show.

MyOneAndOnly 07-26-2018 09:22 PM

I'm binge watcing "Scott & Bailey".

great female led detective drama. UK. Rather formulaic but all three of the lead characters are strong women. Very fun to watch

Nah it was still good. The house stuff was still funny because of Jian Yang.

LaBelle 07-29-2018 07:21 PM

Started watching the 6th season of Orange is the New Black.

So far it's really good, but it seems they got rid of a lot of characters at this point. It's weirding me out.

reprise85 07-29-2018 10:41 PM

i didnt even know they put out the 6th season. was pretty underwhelmed with last season. there were some good points though. i'm sure i'll watch it soon.

buzzard 07-29-2018 11:11 PM

Did anybody see Mostly 4 Millennials?

The Eric Andre Show + Hot Package turned out to be a fairly accurate summary, two episodes in. There's a Tim and Eric element, too.
