  1. S24.E11: The Finale Part 2

    Yeah I do think the show, especially this season is somewhat biased against girls but you just have to look at the fanbase. Like someone said most of the girls who have won had Derek has a partner and the DWTS audience loves Derek lmao. Like no way Nicole Scherzinger or Amber Riley would have won if they didn't have Derek. I'm happy for Rashad and especially Emma though lol.
  2. lol yeah honestly all the minority characters are either props in the background or villains. It is what it is though. Maybe they'll change that in season 2 if they get enough criticism. i don't think they should get praise for diversity though.
  3. Honestly I find biracial/vs Black debates annoying whenever I see them lol. No offence to anyone but black people come in all shades. I did agree that hollywood tends to prefer lighter skinned actresses from what I've noticed but I'm not into looking at people's parentage to determine what roles they should get lol. I'm sure in this case they just cast whoever they thought was best for each part out of who came to the auditions for those roles. This. Reggie was a major character in the books and he's barely on this show like what? Some people were saying it's because the actor was filming the show 13 reasons why. I honestly can't confirm this and I don't know if it's true. And I agree they don't know what to do with Archie. His music career doesn't really interest me and I really don't care enough about Jason. I've found the last few episodes bit boring. This was a really good article about this honestly. Like I don't think the show HAS to be diverse honestly. I love all sorts of shows with mostly or all white casts but I do take issue with the fact that the show seemed to try and present an image of "diversity" when it really only focuses on the white characters. Like Valerie was dating Archie but got not screen time still? I understand not everyone will get equal screen time but it's odd. A contract character on ALL the promotional material only being in half the episodes? (and even most of the episodes she's in it's like 2 minutes of screen time) And OMG Chuck's character. Like I don't think it's that big a deal they changed the character from the book to make him a dick but that scene where Betty and Veronica chained him to pool made me cringe so hard. Like you can tell there are no black writers on this show lol. I see that he's back in the next episode lol.
  4. I feel when this show focuses too much on the parents it gets more boring
  5. KJ is so cute but like some other people I think Archie is boring lol. I hope they make him more involved in the murder mystery.
  6. Yeah I like Kevin and the LGBT representation is nice although sometimes I think they make him too stereotypical. He's been in almost all the episodes except for one and even has a love interest. Maybe the producers liked him which is why he gets so much screentime for a recurring character?
  7. fam I really don't know. Watch it be none of those and be some random person that shows up in the 2nd last episode
  8. mm this is true. Frankly all of them are treated poorly but I do find it interesting how Valerie seems to have more screen time. Biracial/light-skinned women are preferred generally in hollywood. That is definitely true. I do like her actress though and I guess it makes sense since's she's Archie's current love interest? Although that may change next episode lol. It's just confusing cuz Ashleigh was advertised as being in the main cast. Maybe they wanted to go in one direction but changed their minds? Some people are saying Ashleigh is a poor actress but we've barely seen her do anything and it's not like the whole main cast are amazing actors. Lili Reinhart is really the only one of the teens that impresses me. She's great. Anyway I didn't expect much for a CW show concerning black characters tbh so I'm not surprised. They made Josie and the Pussycats an all black group to try and score diversity points but then made them unlikable and give her no screentime and make them completely uninvolved in the main storyline. And poor Melody :( That's my issue with forced diversity. I'm surprised Ross Butler/Reggie doesn't get much screen time though but allegedly that's because of his other show.
  9. S01.E13: Tape 7, Side A

    lol Justin's hatred and obsession of Clay was so weird. And yeah his suggestion to kill him was so OTT. Was it supposed to be a joke because it was ridiculous. I think at that point he was scared of people figuring out it was true because he was telling people it was lies. Also Clay's tapes right before Bryce's who they were all trying to protect. And Clay had the least defamatory tape so they were afraid when he got through the tapes he would report it or tell someone. I agree he is 100% an asshole Like I would rank him a little bit below Courtney and Marcus on an "asshole list" but I still felt bad for him.
  10. S01.E13: Tape 7, Side A

    I would hope so. The guy was an asshole but I couldn't help but feel a little bad for him. I don't really think he was an inherently a bad person. It seemed his friendship with Bryce made him that way and that he wasn't able to stand up to him but he felt indebted to the guy because he was always there for him throughout his shitty family situation. By the end you could really see that his world was falling apart. But ugh at him for not only letting his girlfriend get raped but lying about it for so long. SMH. And for letting Bryce spread that picture and not speaking up to defend Hannah. If there is a season 2 (which I'm not sure?) he better have changed. On the note of season 2. Would it really work without Hannah? She was the whole catalyst for the show what would season 2 focus on. Tyler's school shooting plans? I don't know if it would work, but they seemed to have changed the ending so much from the book it feels like they are pushing for a season 2. ( I haven't read the book just based on what people told me).

    I definitely knew Courntey and Marcus types in high school. The over achiever, super involved gunner types who were focused about their reputation and future and such they had no empathy for others. And yeah your right those are the people they don’t usually tell you to be careful of. Yeah the end of episode 9 shows Jessica definitely had memories of what happened. I think she was in deep denial and wasn't exactly sure if her memories were real. She seemed to really depend on Justin and since he kept on insisting it was a lie she wanted to believe that it was but you could see it was having an effect on her, such as the heavy drinking. I honestly felt bad for her because not only was she raped but she was betrayed by someone she really trusted. I'm just glad she told her dad at the end, meaning he'll most likely do something about it.
  12. S01.E07: Tape 4, Side A

    yeah I liked that too. It added ambiguity and obviously someone who is depressed would have a different point of view. It did make me wonder about what Jessica said of Hannah being the one to stop coming to Monet when she and Alex got together. Like iI just assumed she was lying to make herself seem better but rethinking about it it's possible. Hannah did seam to shy away from human connection. lol maybe I'm over thinking it though lmao. Hannah was probably telling the truth about that but it did make me think.
  13. S01.E07: Tape 4, Side A

    mmm ok what was the purpose of having Hannah lie about Zach throwing away the letter was it to show she's unreliable and since she was suicidal at that point she somewhat exaggerated what happened. I've finished the show but I'm till wondering why she lied about that.
  14. S01.E13: Tape 7, Side A

    Yes this too. Iforgot. You could just feel he was hurting the whole time. I don't know why I didn't expect him to be the one who shot himself I guess their red herrings worked on me lol. I hope he survived. Really the only characters I personally outright disliked were Courtney, Marcus and obviously Bryce.
  15. S01.E13: Tape 7, Side A

    Yeah I did really feel for Alex. Actually thinking back he was clearly suicidal the whole time. He had no friends, getting into a fight with that kid, pulling out of school activities. The scene where he randomly started speeding in the car with the boys. And although he was kind of a jerk I truly felt bad for him. All he did was make a list. He had a lot of toxic masculinity at his home from his dad and bother and nowhere to express his emotion. And he truly loved Jessica who wouldn't take him back and he messed up the only true friendships he had. And yeah it def seems they are setting up Tyler to be a school shooter. They really did a lot of setting up for season 2. I kind of want to see it. Too many unfinished storylines. I also want to see what happens to Justin and especially Jessica.
