Do we need a stereotypical black girl who feels like an outsider doing ballet and just hoods out when she's mad.....can't she just be a poor girl who does ballet, also did we need the homophobic fight outside the club? Doesn't add anything to the story or characters that makes sense. Also did we need the "I hate Muslims because my dad was in the military" trope, from a random mixed raced dude in 2020. Just feels like too many stereotypes and tropes being laid out with no real payoff or reasoning.Still the show is decently acted and shot well, thats all I can say since I'm not a ballet expert, but these characters aren't really being fleshed out and neither is the story, we know as much as we did now as we did before which is nothing, take it slow going through the mystery and drama, but let it all blend and flow and lead to an interesting and understandable conclusion at least.
Okay but we gotta talk about how they defeated those guys by using their dancing moves, that reminded me of that iCarly episode where Freddie wins in a dance off against some very tough guys who hurt Carly’s honor.And then I can’t believe how concerned they are about Ripper being too scandalous and revolutionary when that story is so normalized right now, it’s like when Andy did a Sweeney Todd play in The Office, that wasn’t controversial at all.And I can’t stop laughing at the secretary saying “look what just came out” and handing out a newspaper in the middle of the night!! Like newspapers aren’t printed at night, so it would’ve to be early in the morning, not at 9 pm.I feel so bad for June and Nabil but how can she be do dumb and think it was Neveah??? Who had the most to benefit of of her not making it on time?? bette!!! So why does she think it was Neveah??? But still I’m rooting for her and Nabil.
FUCK YES!! Beat those homophobes!
