I'm halfway through. Is very easy to half watch while I putter around the house doing tasks. I like that sort of series. The gay guys are cute. The lesbians have been cute. The straight to boy is very skinny and cute. Its not a high quality series but its pleasant and simple like I expected it to be.

Running Up That Hill has a brief moment during the closing credits of one episode.

A cover of Running up that Hill. The OG was also in this season of Stranger Things.

R9 are you sure it's a cover? I rewound a few times and listened and it sounds like Kate to me.

The site Tunefind which lists music in tv shows lists it as Kate.

ah ok. I didn't listen so closely.

I watched it all the way through despite not liking any of the characters. I guess we all have our regrets.

The characters are all contrived but are they all unlikeable?

I like Julia Stiles

I like the girl, Billie, and I want Riley to do naughty things to me. The rest I'm not sure about, but I'm only 3 episodes in.

Opal is who I would've been if I'd been born in the late 00s instead of the late 80s.

This show is fun. The lead is annoyingly charming - and kinda sexy - and I'm having flashbacks to my childhood in Ontario cottage country with the scenery. It looks just like the lake we had our cottage on before it got sold in the divorce.

And the cute boys are CUTE.

I enjoyed the lead. He's got a nice body, too.

by Anonymousreply 17June 27, 2022 7:05 AM

With good writing he could probably carry a sitcom.

I think a lot of you may not have realized who the lead, Jordan Garvaris, is and that he played Felix on Orphan Black- the Goth, Gay, Artist brother of the leads, who was very much the comedic relief on the show. I didn’t really catch on until the start of the second episode when I realized it was a Canadian cast show, then it made perfect sense, except Julia Styles, who isn’t Canadian.

So, the last episode is called No White After Labor Day, and I’m like do the EVEN celebrate Labor Day in Canada? They do, and at the same time, but they call it Labour Day, so it’s still weird that they didn’t call it that.

When I commented previously, I'd only seen 3 episodes and was still giving the series a chance. Now I've finished, I'm not overly enamored with it and not bothered if it comes back or not.

Billie started annoying me halfway through and Justin had few redeeming qualities. As much as I like Julia Stiles, her character was so relentlessly unlikeable, it was tiring.

I watches two episodes and turned it off. The store owner is super cute!

Whoever thought the character of Opal was cool or fun was seriously mistaken.

by Anonymousreply 23July 10, 2022 12:33 AM

I tried to watch this last night and gave up after the first episode. Horrible acting, completely annoying characters, failed attempts to be "woke." An overall mess.

I missed this announcement, though after re-reading the thread, I'm not sure many will care! (Me included.)
