Charli XCX's "Good Ones" followed by Chlöe's "Have Mercy." The music supervisor has bops, y'all.
Also having Stevie Nicks’ Wild Heart and Carly Rae Jepsen’s Julien in this last batch of episodes finished me off.
These six new episodes were (excuse the pun) a blast.
Monet's Mom basically being a billionaire Annelise Keating and her scene humiliating Kate? We love to see it. Now please give Monét and Luna actual storylines.
Zoya, Julien and Obie desperately need separated ongoing plots.
I love the trouple.
These last 6 episodes were definitely an improvement and I really enjoyed them. I am living for Max/Audrey/Aki and can’t wait to see how that works out.
I especially loved seeing Luna get her own side story in the last episode and I hope that leads to more storylines for her and Monet in season 2.
I will start watching the last 3 this weekend. Aly & AJ mentioned one of their songs is in an episode, so congrats to the music co-ordinator on their taste.
The soundtrack has really been on point.
The teachers storyline is hard to get through.
I do love the throuple storyline. I just wish the scriptwriting was not so terrible.
Hoping for more Shan in season 2.
That’s my boo Rob. He never does me wrong.
I'm on ep7 but REALLY struggling with it, think I'm going to give up on it.
These last remaining six episodes have been utterly fantastic. Especially the latest 3. Now THIS is the classic GG we all fell in love with.
Side note, even Aki has become a better actor.
And as I've mentioned numerous times before; Emily Alyn Lind is the best thing to ever happen in this show. She just has spades of star power. She commands every scene she's in. Such a true thespian if you don't mind me exaggerating a bitsy. And the triangle proposition is the most interesting storyline by far.
Also, "Does anybody understand you?" "Only the right people." Luna is absolutely ruthless and I'm kind of getting sick of her getting all the zingers and having all the intel, she even gets more undeserved screen time. I much prefer Monet. She just gets to the point. No bullshit. I hope she becomes to real HBIC going forward. Speaking of Monet, her mother was channeling Viola Davis a bit too much. Calm down ma'am.
Zoya can actually surprise me sometimes with her advice, especially when talking to her sister. She really has her best interests at heart. BUH-BYE, Obie.
I'm so glad it already got renewed for a second season after the first episode premiered if I'm not mistaken. HBO Max has a lot of faith in this as they should.
The shade they threw at Riverdale was also hysterical considering it's the same production company.
And they PLAYED Aly & AJ. My heart jumped with joy.
I think my confusion with Emily Alyn Lind acting is that she seems to be leaning a little more into the camp side of the original series where the rest of them are kind of just existing. It creates a weird tonal shift. I do appreciate it now after the last 3 episodes. Hope the rest camp it up a bit with the next season.
Obie is the worst character across all iterations of this property.
I still can’t stand Julien. Like she is a pretty shitty person and always has to have someone tell her off about it. How can anyone bear it?
We’re up to the finale and whilst the back 6 have been a lot stronger than the first 6, there’s still way too much going on, and things are wrapped up too quickly, often at the expense of more interesting characters that are largely ignored.
I did however love Heidi telling both Oboe and Max about themselves. Where’s her show. Shoulder padded queen.
Deuxmoi is reporting that Leighton Meester is in talks to appear in season 2.
That would be great
Michelle Trachtenberg too, please!
I don't think HBO Max had much of a choice. They need their own version of Elite so as to compete with Netflix.
The show's not great but it's an entertaining watch on a lazy weekend.
Lil' Milo is calling her name as we speak. Michelle has strongly hinted in recent interviews with her expressive eyes, and being all, 'never say never.' She's definitely coming back at some point. She had an absolute blast playing the role. She's mentioned before that Georgina's one of her favorite characters.
