he / him
"I'm just a freak, yeah" has been stuck in my head all day. Give us "World Class Sinner" now, HBO.
Even the cheesy (but iconic) 80s villain score that played when he entered wasn't enough to convince me that he was someone to be afraid of.
When the gates opened and he looked as cheesy as count dracula with that black cape, I guffawed. This is completely terrible and misguided trash, but I find it wholly entertaining. The little blurb on metacritic is that this is the worst HBO series ever.I'm shocked at the reactions here dd, I thought this was terrible, and not even in an entertaining way. The dialogue was awful, and I'm a huge fan of The Weeknd but... Abel can't act. He was bad. Even the cheesy (but iconic) 80s villain score that played when he entered wasn't enough to convince me that he was someone to be afraid of. It failed on virtually every level that a pilot can fail for me.
I don’t know. I fully get Abel’s intended to be a leech (the mirror scene tells it all) but there lies a very blurred line if iťs that or he’s just a bad actor dd because he is stiff. I can’t imagine the GP caring that much about this “meta” reasoning. Am giving him benefit of doubt for now until the more meaty stuff comes out in later episode as I suspect.
The show is… fine. I’m interested by pure virtue of it being about a pop diva but I can’t imagine somebody like my sister to be invested in this? I have never watched “Euphoria” (sue me) so I was expecting glossy hyperreal Hype Williams-esque cuts so was surprised how different (and gorgeous) it looks. I think it was shot on actual fim and it really shows.
Lily’s been great in this and Troye was surprisingly good too.
Oh and the go-hard choreo for such a mid-tempo song made me scream! That was a hit.gif
How famous is Jocelyn supposed to be? It's hard to buy into the "fame!" tropes when she seems like the type who has struggle released a few singles and has about 50 gay fans on Twitter.
Based on the way that she's presented, I feel like she's meant to be like Britney pre-Blackout and "World Class Sinner" is meant to be her "Gimme More."How famous is Joselyn supposed to be?

To be fair, we've yet to see her actually perform. We've only seen her practice choreography once.
