Omfg season 2 of QE THOOOOOO

First episode immediately had me sobbing.


So many tears! I'm shocked my eyes weren't super puffy the next day from all the crying.

That woman was AMAZING. Her personalized goodbyes to the guys, ugh heartbreaking.

I got distracted with Queer Eye season 2 and Father's Day stuff, but I should be able to watch this on Tuesday and join in late.

I've wanted to see this one too!

Another really great show that describes money laundering is Leverage (which is an excellent show about thieves and is way more fun than this piece of shit yet is somehow executive produced by Dean Deviln the guy who made GEOSTORM) In an episode they talk about how gyms make PERFECT money laundering operations because people will naturally buy a membership... then not go. So it makes sense for them to have more "clients" and membership fees than they really do if anyone comes sniffing around. They were trying to entice the bad guy to leave his money with them. I love this show far more than is reasonable and know far too much about each episode than is healthy. I'm proud I didn't go off the rails... (which is funny because they reroute a train in this episode. I tried . OK I TRIED)


I loved that show. And I now know how to manipulate people easily because of it 😁

But why is this his responsibility? She's an adult. She wants to be an actress. What she's doing isn't working. All he does is give her another option and helps her through it. I don't know that he also needs to be like, "And now if this doesn't work, you should do this..."


I don't think its his responsibility at all to make sure she's responsible. I just think its weird to encourage someone to quit their job and not ask them how they're planning on paying for a theater rental. I know someone like that also encouraged people with 'don't think about it too much, just live it' and it usually didn't end well financially for the other people.

Here's the thing - I'm a huge planner. I have spreadsheets and color coded calendars for everyday stuff. Someone tells me not to worry and go with the flow, that's the first thing I'm going to do because in my experience THEY'RE not thinking about the details. So two people in a couple just living in the moment, living their art, are probably going to drive me a little crazy.

But, please, tell me more about how selfish he is...


I don't think he's selfish per say. Just that he's thoughtless (in a nice way, not a cruel way). He encourages Mia to quit her job, write her own thing, rent out a theater - all great things! - but then doesn't really follow up with her about a back up plan or what her next step is. He snows her with charm and a 'it's fate! Don't worry so much' attitude and she has zero follow through. I know its not his fault that she didn't draw a crowd, but the 'everything always goes the way I expect it to' attitude drives me insane and doesn't extend itself to everyone.

I may have some issues with this type of person that's coloring my viewing.

I also don't think Mia is in the right here either. She misses him and picks a fight with him that makes it seem like he's compromising his ideals, knowing personally how hard it is to succeed in making art for a living. I agree the music he was playing wasn't what he wanted to in his dreams, but it was better than the pool party 80's band and much better money too! They're both complicated people with not great communication skills.
