    I´ve finished "Pose" at last. I enjoyed it a lot though it´s not perfect (too simplistic would be the word?). At least Mr. Murphy has admitted he tried to do a "lighter" show with a positive message. Let´s hope it doesn´t deviate from its initial definition because it´s a subject that deserves to be "out there". Evan Peters is a lot better here than in many of his AHS roles, maybe because he needed to be more subtle, and Kate Mara kills it in each scene, mainly when she meets her rival. Of the transgender actresses I loved Indya Moore (Angel) the better for the same reason I liked Evan´s performance: all the others are always giving too much or too little, but Indya says a lot with her body language and sad looks. The nods to "Dynasty" and "Falcon Crest" in episode 2 were so fun and well-deserved!

    Dominique Jackson (center) should play NuDominique in WC Dienasty!

    Tonight I watched a few pilots:

    - "Bodyguard": 24+Scandal+Homeland+House of Cards. Richard Madden is incredibly cute but I expect more originality from the rest of the show.

    [​IMG]

    Mad about the Madden boy...
    - "FBI": The biggest pile of garbage I´ve seen lately. Not even Jeremy Sisto can make his character appealing.

    - "The Son": Oh my, where to begin with...Too Dallas-y to be objective, I guess. Every character is slappable and the way they portray American Indians and Mexicans is mega-cliched and offensive...

    - "You": I watched this with no expectation at all...and it got my interest. It surprisingly became a sort of but it looks promising and the actors are good.

    And, of course, I keep watching my 2 classic sitcoms, "I Dream of Jeannie" (Season 1) and "The Golden Girls" (Season 6).

    It's an interesting subject (I had never heard of the vogue-culture before) but somehow it fails to be a compelling drama.
    I'm not sure why, maybe there's something inherently challenging and tragic about being transgender, it's so easy to over-dramatize everything.
    POSE also tries to capitalize on the Yuppie American Dream, but the story plays in 1987, therefore it doesn't feel quite natural.

    Blanca feels she's being discriminated in a gay bar, eventhough the gay bar is for young males only. No women allowed, straight, gay or transgender. It's very simple: no women.
    But no, she has to be in that particular bar, and she's determined to make that her personal triumph.

    That's a no-brainer. She and the handsome Ricky were the best parts of the show.

    I'm really looking forward to Season 3, but am dreading it not being Claire Foy in the lead role anymore. She will be replaced by Olivia Colman.

    I know what you mean. Claire Foy was perfect in the role as Queen Elizabeth. I can see why she won an emmy for it. :)

    I look forward to season 3 too.

    - The Golden Girls: Gay Clint Ogden wants to marry a man. Debbie Reynolds wants to replace Dorothy after her wedding (which is canceled). Cher´s Bono dates Dorothy. Peter Stavros sleeps with Sophia (sic!). It´s being a funny season, to be honest...

    First, she called Jane Wyman "that old crow".
    Then she falls in love with her ex...​

    There's a new ITV drama called 'Cheat' which I'm enjoying.

    - Three last episodes of Season 6 of "The Golden Girls". A show that dares to feature its sixtysomething stars in animal disguises is, at the very least, a show that knows how to entertain and make fun of itself altogether, after six long years...Can´t wait to see the rest of it...The video below is something to be seen...
