The markthis is a condcastwhere two best friends talk about movies they've, never seen before. I'mIsabel and I'm Lauren- and this is how have we never seen this before thewinner of this week's contest is one of my good friends. Aden, congratulations,Eden and if you want to be given a shadow at the beginning of one of ourepisodes, make sure to follow us on Nsegram Howave. We never poncast andcheck out our insigram story every week, hi everyone and welcome back to hell.We never seen this before. We are on episode, two of season to and we'rewatching love in the time of Corona M. There's a lot to be said, not a lot, we've kind of come to the consensusthat we didn't, like our apologies to the creators um beforeI begin I'd like to say, I thought this was a reality TV dating show. So did I.I was very disappoined, my God same and there's a lot of thingsthat awroung with this, and I just couldn't get into it and there's likesomething that Lorn thinks that I was thinking, I'm not sure if it's going to be arepeatof lassly wher about it. Probably he opposite thing, but we'll see when we get there so before we get into like how they recorded this show in apindemic and why we don't like it. So basically, this show, if you ever seen this is usit's sort of like that. AWARN has. Okay, O Yens won't work everyone, but Um. There are a lot of characters and theyall have their own storyline and it junks in between each story line Um,while they're all trying to maneuver being married or starting relationships,or one of the the plot lines is in older woman and her husband's in anursing home. So there's a lot of different storylines and there likesort of all connected, but also not- and it was I I don't know like it- waslike you- you went like halfway there. Maybe you shouldave kept going or notdone it at all yeah. I think they thought they were being clever orsomething by having them connect ever so slightly yeah. It was just like you didn't really needto put that in there MHM. The show is also on free form Um.So you know it's going to be very cheesy and very rindy, and it's also alimited series. So there were only four episodes and we decided to watch all ofthem and we really suffered doing that so yeah. When you told me that therewere only four episodes. I was like, oh so this the series is still going on.Like there are only four episodes in yeah, but it's over yes M, I I just felt like everything wrapped uptoo quickly. It was KINDOF like a half baked showlike no one. No character got to develop and their problems began andended so quickly and it all wrapped up so nicely at the end, and it was kindof annoying. It was s very strange. Okay, so I've been doing some researchand reading some articles. I think I foundthis on a CNN article. They did an interview with the woman who created the show andbasically so forecasting they found actors who were already quarantiningtogether. Um, like the people who play H, James and Sade James is playby Lesley,autum, junior they're, already married or they'realready a couple, so they both acted in the show together since they wereliving together, which is, I think, is kind of cool Laa. Once I found out howthis show was filmed and put together, it kind of made me respect it, justjust a teeny, tiny bit, and so after they figured out the casting people whoare who were already living together, um. They, the crew, sat in separate podtents outside the actors, homes, and...

...they would give them robotic camerasand gimbles to set up, and they would basically direct them virtually outsidetheir house and um set up sound and stuff like that outside their house andMike them and the crew sat outside and then on. The inside of the houses, theactors adjusted the cameras based on the feedback from the crew and yeah, sothey film the whole thing in two weeks, hmit chose, I think it's kind of crazy how theywere able to get out a free form show so fast and UmStream it because it was filmed and like either March April or May, andit's out already, and so they filmed it in two weeks and they probably only hada few weeks to edit it as well and send it to post, which I think is kind ofimpressive, but also the writing's terrible. Everything about the show isterrible that I think the production was kind of impressive, especiallybecause no one's done something like that before yeah. That's like I agree.It makes me appreciate the show a little bit more, knowing that, but also makes sense yeah exactly yeah. I didn't I didn't know any ofthat. I was waiting for your explanation on that, so considering that they wrote it orwhenever they wrote it or filmed it, I couldn't figure out when this was set.I guess it was like April. Maybe I think it was end of April andto, thebeginning of May yeahbecause, the persons the old couple's anniversary islike may fifteenth Thoug ing something around that date and h. It ends ontheir anniversary, so I think it was April going into may yeah. It was justlike they were like yeah. I have this anniversary party and we didn't knowwhat it was Y, a Soh like. Where are we in this timeline? Some really importintthings that they were they should have mentioned in the very first episodetook so long to get to a round episode. Three or four things started to makesense like setting like place and time like all of those things, names names,exaccuve Ugenders, even I Koayso. That was my thing. That's thething that I was thinking of like am I in Idio, or did they never say theirnames, because the entire first episode I was searching Petli, I can't miss. Ican't Miss T. I know there's going to be so many characters and then I didn'tget any names in the first episode. I got maybe one or two on the second andthen I still didn't have all of Hem. By theend Y P, I had to look up everyone's name to like figure it out. I onlyremembered Ah James, Oscar Ang, I I had James L, which is I didn't,have auscer. I had L, which is his friend so and H. I knew Jg, but Ididn't really count that person and Adam the neighbor Adam Im onvine right now. Well, I guess weshould talk about the characters and introduce them all so. The first peoplethat you're introduced to is a man and his wife and they have a baby. So it'sJames WHO's, Um played by Lesli Odean, his wife, who I don't know her name andTheyre Baby Charlie. Oh her aunt, her name is seed Sa okay. I never got thatso they're, first, like real issuewer, like Ome, trouble that they faceis thatJames Ane's another baby, but the wife said doesn't really want it right now,and it's really like back and forh about. Oh, we now that the wife is liketalking about it to this friend she's like Oh, maybe I do want a babyand then she's a guess. I want a baby and then they start trying for a babyand then they add in the killing of a modorbory and like really shift James'sopinion about having another child, and then he he tolds her that he never wantsanother child at all. And it's but she's, like very gong home shes, beentelling a lot of people about it and there's also like a second plot linethat James wasn't spending enough time at home before so. That's like now thathe's home she thought things will be better, but now it's like worse becausehe doesn't now another baby and it's just like a big Oldmet...

...bt D. I think, like his story. Alsoties in is mostly like James' story and it ties in with his mother and then hisyounger, maybe maybe older brother, but that's like another story line kind of yeah the storyline that they're kind ofconnected to because their family is, you say her name Nanda. I didn't gether name. Okay, let's just call her grandma mm okay, so you have James'smom. I call her grandma and Um. She is very cute Um. She is a very good chef, she's, alwayscooking things and m. She is planning a long party or some sort of likeanniversary party for her husband, Charlie or Charles Charles Um, who iscurrently in the hosspiddle or like it looks like Rehave Y. Yes, so he hasDamensia and he is they're planning on getting him home because they, okay,all the characters in this show think that quarantine is going to end by the beginning of May, which is bizarre because all the wayback in April, like the beginning of April, we knew that the stay at home order was pushed backuntil the end of May anyway, especially for California 'cause. They were inlike a really bad state yeah exactly so. Some of that doesn't line up withreality. Um, like the the only time we ever thoughtthat Corona Irus was just goingto. Last, like two weeks was like at thebeginning of March, when the first day at home order was put in place, we werelike. Oh, we just eat to quarantine for two weeks: Thend we'll be fine, it'llall be lifted, it'll be gone, and then things took a turn like a few days intothose two weeks. Whe were like yeah, never mind yeah, so basically Um all of the characters. I it kind ofties into their stories or under the assumption that they'll be getting onwith their lives soon when, like that, didn't actually happen for forCalifornia, especially but Um. So the day that he's supposed to get outof the Nursing Home Rehave facility is the day that thes stay at home orderwas supposedly supposed to be lifted, and so they they struggle with hisdemensio and Um. Then we get introduced to the strange son. His name is diedricded I cor, I think, is DDDRIK Didrich okay, so he was recentlylaid off from his job m. He has a guitar, I'm assuming I has something todo with music, and so she reaches out to the grandma and asks her to. Heasked her to take him in, and so she says yes, but she also wants him toreach out to the rest of the family, to kind of reform, their relationship M and so yeah. That's kind of her, thegrandmas like storyline cheese, working with her a strange son to build theirrelationship back up again and she's, trying to plan a party for her husband who hasDamencia m. Then you have nurse Maggie who is a Charles, is nurse,and then who else is in that story line? Oh, we also have Adea who is ier on thevideo cameyeah. That's sade sister. We never get her name, I'm pretty sure,never over oen Um, and so she recently moved in with her boyfriend that shejust started virtually dating M for corosons tick, up things yeah. She hasTik Talk Bangs and she moved in with him, so she couldhave sex with him and then she ends up getting corona. Dont know hord theyjust lo just like yeah. Now she has it like that. Doesn't make any sense ifshe was doing exactly what she was supposed to be doing. She wasquarantining and not leaving the house so how die she get it. It was like itwas just very all of a sudden. She was like Yep. I have it and we'll see, we don't know she lives or she dies,because she was like kind of sick. When we last see her and she's, like thedoctor says it could take a turn on week too, and then we never find outanything about her again yeah. That was so weird yeah. Okay, you could talk about the nextfamily so like also they they're kind of inthe storyline. This is where they like...

...tried to connect them. So this kid this girl, I thought she was aredhead. I don't know her name, but she like comes home from college, and soit's like kind of Oh, like probably the people watching the show or like kids,who came Wak from college and or Grumpe whatever. She had to come homefrom college to live with her parents Um and she was going to have her boyfriend like quarantine withthem. But he breaks up with her the day before quarantines suppose to happen,and there's also thiso this other storyland in their family, that thedown the momer actually separated, and they were going to tell her when shecame home from college. But she came home because Acquarantineanthen her boyfriend broke up with her and it de didn't seem like the righttime, so they've been trying to keep it secret this whole time and the the dad also has a girlfriend who sucks and theMOMIS. Like I put my career on, hold to raise our kid and, like you were alive, like not like a lot, she waslike. She said that to him. She was like why weren't you this alive when wewere together, so that was like kind of their separation story, but it's kindof Ao because save says the same thing to James, and so you have Sarah andPaul, like the two parenl after the Bieeans, having the same issues thatJames and say d have like can y. can you just leave it to like one couple tohave that issue yeah and also so the ther kid theredhead girl, um she's, like her one of her teachers inhigh school, was the grandma, so they got an invitation to their theiranniversary party. I oky Li e that wasn't necessary and, like other plotlines within that family is like. I Guess Paul is a dad Um. Hisgirlfriend follows the girl on in sylvum. That's her name. What is hername Sophie, Sophy, okay, so she folld gg follows Sopi on instagram and islike commenting on all her posts and like she sends so one of the NightsSophie sneaks out for a party because she's trying to make her ex boyfriendjealous and then someone post e picture of her onlineand G G sends it to Paul and they'r, like all my mom's got corona now and everything's ruined and but then, sincethey haven't, told sophy that they're separated nd she's, like she scrollsthrough G Je's account and irs, like Oh, my God, my dad's having an affair and I'm like no like we're separated, butthen they're like we're just going to get back togother. That's so much topeae Al d do Yep. Do we ever actually find out whathappens with GGM Paul, I think they break up and the DAD said. I Want Osame with my family elcom. That's good! At least. Can we just talk about howannoying Sophi is she ox? She goes Isarah Lawrence. So, like that', that'senough to know what her personality is no offence to anyone who gos toCeramore, but you know not my cup of tea and she waslike talking. She talked about how obnoxious it wasfor Jordan to be going out and like not going out as in like partying, but justlike leaving his house during quarantine, but then goes to a party tomake him jealous a corona theme party. Like, Oh, my God, are you yeah? It's almost as if some boomer wrotethis Um this olentire script. Welli have. I have some thoughts on who wroteThi script but we'll get into that later, but first sophy storyline, itseems like a boomer, wrote the script and just like thinks, that's how all Um, like all college students act, which islike okay H, a lot of them do that. But then there are most people like in t Ma march through May, staed quarantinedid not leave their house yeah and then there's one otherstorylike who os er. Now, Oh, I forgot about that. Oh or oh, that's ME OKA! So you have Oscar and l. There are twobest friends who um are a little too close. In my opinion, definitely in some scenes and so lplaced the guitar Um. She is in love...

...with Oscar, or at least she thinks. Butthen she kind of creepily likes her neighbor M who y Athi shower they justlike watch this man shower outside, like how do you think? That's? Okay.First of all, that's predatory, behavior and second of all who whatshower naked outside when your neighbors have a balcony and can watchyou and see you. I know and e was like my like. I flipping houses in myshowers like the bathroom's being renovated, but like put some bathing soup shorts on man,yohave some swim trucks. I don't want to see that yet so ella isalso really annoying because she's kind of an elitist she thinks that she'sreally unique, because she reads books like wow. They know M, so I kind of hate herthere's Oscar they're non binary mand. They start virtually dating this guynamed Shan Oscars. I stylist and I like their makeup. That's all I have Um. Let me see, Oh i! Well! That's allI have for Oscar. I have shoon a DA well for for Oscar and for l. They like set updates for each other. Theythey find someone on Tener or whatever and swipe right, andthen they go and dates with the people that elpick for Osca or Ascar pickferoland that's how they or how Oscar meet shone and the person that ll setup with is great yeah. The person that OFCCER SETS LL UPWITH IS SUPER INTO UM DC COMIC DC, come of all comics to be into wd. I sa notfree form. You have to use marvel. Sorry well, I feel like they used DC becausethey made him seem like such a loser Y H, so like Wy, don't give them DC comicsto like, but Um yeah, so the guy we didn't catch his name but Um,the guy that Oscar set ell up with Superanto DC comics Um. He also asks tosee her boobs after the conversation Gos South, which is Super Weird, and Idon't think anyone would do that. But yeah then you have Shan Sean. Is the person that els etsocar up with Um and he has a past of hooking up with a lot of people oo umhe speaks French that'that was one of my like favorite moments. It's justlike one of the few I'am just like. Oh, he speaks friend. The only redeeming quality of the showis Oscar speaking or not. Oscar Shawn go French and he's also Canadian, sothat also makes him just an elite human being yeah heis doll citizenship, so hecan escape whenever he wants and like the rest of us yeah, Oh and then you have Adam theneighbor that l falls for so Adam. You first think that he's somesort of handy man who exclusively wears Carhart M. However, you soon find outthat he can read Um and he also so he flips houses for aliving, but he is a writer Um, and so this is so annoy. I hate it Um once like. When he starts to fall for L, Hey, theystart calling each other and stuff. She throws a book at him. He gives hernormal people to read and so he's an elitist to Um. Yright starts writing a book guess whatthe book is called Slove in the time of Corona. I've never wanted to plungesomeone more in my entire life and if it's the same plot as a show, it's not going anywhere. I really don'tthink it will be receiving a pulterprize. Unfortunately, so oh the only person that we don't. Wehave we've missed two people so far. Now, yes, so we missed em Charlie the baby, who we never get tosee. YEHIS MOEN exist.

I guess m like they couldn't find acouple who had a baby to act for the show or they just didn't- want to writea baby and like give a baby anyline, because Um like filming with babies, isreally unpredictable, and so they only had two weeks, so they just never showdways snapping. They never show the kid like. Is He alive? If he's alwaysnapping that'll, it's a grow: Oh charliey's, a girl, okay, sorrycharliey's, a girl, good Luve, Charlie, mmso yeah. We never see Charlie hows, Isuppose no she's a girl, never see Hes, they say big sister, Oh Geb, yeah, sosorry MSS Jalymay. I knew sorry for misgendering the baby in the show. Butyes, so we never see Charlie Um and then the only person we have left issophie's friend the girl, a convinces her to go to theCURRENTO virus party, the one with the guchimas yeah. Her only quality is thatshe wears a Gooci mask and doesn't take the virer seriously. Yeah, that's yeah! So that's the lovelycast that we have so like my next few notes are like I separatedit. So, like I have my cringy moment section my scenes and quotes that stoodout in the MiG good plot points, which is none like. I have two lines but they're notlike pot points it as just like. Oh maybe I'll, like this O ten. So do youwant to go to Oh seemes that stood out and thencringy moments and then good flot points a we high low and hi yeah. That's a good idea! Yeah! I only hadhigh points for episodes, one and two, or at least like Escenes, that set outso I'll, read mine, then Youe, Yours bt, so for episode, one when we first metOscar and l they're like they just like, do Tiktak challenges which Iwa likethats like kind of cringy, but I was also like no one else was doinganything else at that time either. So that went into my cringe, sectionunfortne and then so. The other one is the very,very first sing of the show it made me like have high hopes, but then it wasdownhill from this Pointon, but you see James N, saide and he's putting ongloves and a mask and like foln goggles, just to go to the grocery store. Icould't stop laughing because that's what my mom was like at the verybeginning of all this I migwe couldn't like none was allowed to go to thegrocery store, but her she went at seven in the morning on like a Thursdayo random day, so the winks, many people and then she would take all of ourgroceries, put them out. We have this like outside building and she put themout there and then wiped all of them down and we couldn'ttouch them for three days. So she that's like it was like. Oh, Idon't want to relive my morge through Ma Kindo, how my um family was except weinstacarted everything, but we'd have to wipe it all off with Um disinfectingwipes and unfortunately we did buy stuff from Amazon, I'm sorry but Um. Whenever we like bought stufffrom Amazon we or any package. We left it in the garage for a few days becausewe merely were we were that Um passen about saying safe and we still ended upgetting the virus. Yeah catually survive CORONAF but yeah. So my other like points forthe show, an episode too, is when we find out that I just calglet him. Thethirteen reasons why guy because I didn't know his name Caoo, who doesOscar playing thirteen reasons? Why, I don't know, I don't remember you' sure,positive, absolutely positive, but I just wrote that the guy who's datingspeaks French and I was like that's fun, then what we Umand, then. He also like lists off abunch of like cheese, pickup lines about like the virus, and I justthought the first one he said was cute and it you can't spell virus witboutyou and I that was also in my cringe section. That's all I had though I was like. Ineed something good for for me. Are you done yeah tater forme, ththat, Paul and Sara kind of kept...

...their separation from their child andlike lived with her and didn't, tell her Um whas kind of bizarre. However,it was even more bizarre because, when she finds out, all she has to say is myparents are Sausas Hell Ito talking like that yeah, so that happened Um, oh, what mm pothey do the good ones. These are thethings that's dont out, yeah t a really stoot out too, Oh okay Um, when Ellen Oscar hooked up.We forgot to mention that. Oh I put that in cringe. Oh yeah, thatwas that was cringy, but I feel like it really stood out to me BEC. First of all, it was so bizarre becausethey were reading their childhood diaries to each other, and then they just started making outall of a sudden, and then they had sex and then Oscar was like. I guess, I'mleaving you Sean, because I'm supposed to be in love with l and then was like.No, no don't worry about it. You should be with Shang and then they were bothlike okay, atother storyend, also L Elsan to Adam.She was like yeah. I, like I th twenty minutes after they wake up und Nafteoeach other she's like yes, I guess ostraniare in a relationship now ano. No, you don't drunkenly hook up withyour roommate and then say that you're in a relationship. Now they didn't eventalk to each other. Yet she was like Yek wer in a relationship nd. I waslike no, no, no you're, not that's! Why hate l anyway, sorry O keep it. I HavePaul and Sara end up together at the end, and I hate it because no a rom hasa happy endmwhich I'll get into. When I H when I explain my problem with theplot points: Oh Everon at the end ends up being with who they want to, andthen they also end up being friends, lovers and family again yeah, but not ather, hit the same time. T moving on. Oh there's, also a dumb caranniversary party at the end, um outside of nursing home that Charlie Sta, CharlesMatarl Whos Tame, not the Baby Charles. Yes, so there is a drive by party.That's wh t that's what they call it right, a drive by party, I think so itsounds. It doesn't sound right when I say it, but m yeah. So James Is thereSaed is there the baby is not there. I don't know how they found a babysitterUMDEEDRIK. Is there uh, obviously grandma and GRANDPA, orhosting the partis, so theyere there Um James O, already said Ellen Oscar. Aren't there wait yeahno wre theythe Ony wa? What the only way that their story connectsis that at the very end, m, Oscar and shanerback together and Sean has aplane fly a massive banner through the sky. That is something about. Love,doesn't stop because of Coronu, something like that and then the samebanner flies over their party yeah. I goingto say that's so annoying they'regoing to connect all of the story lines except theirs, yeah so mad. That's whyI was like you like really like got halfway there and then wewere likemwhatever yeah again, so that's basically all I hadthat was kind of a closer fat of him. For me I mean we can move onto the cringymoments. Then God should we talk about plot points and then moments likecringy, er, bad plot points and or cringy moments. I just did crinsymoments because the whole thing was a cringy plot point to me. So I talk about my issues with the plotyeah y okay. So I believe that a robot wrote the script it's almost as if they tried to jam inas many buzzwords as they could possibly come up with, like theycreated some sort of algorithm filled with every news headline from March,until Bay, yeah and of robot wrote a script for that, like they say, mask virus quarantine,social, distancing, sheltr. This...

...sculpture has been sheltering in place,lkewhy yeah. That was like my thing likethroughout all the episodes is like every thing that they talked about islike. Oh, this is what you're supposed to doing. Quorantine like this is, likeI didn't say it as eloquently as you just did, b like they just keep tryingto be on trend this entire time. It's like. I don't know it's like I'm overthis. I don't want. I don't get to be on the the quarnting tren. I wan bethinking about something else now yeah like we, we have to endure like so muchright now as people as people. People on the Earthhave to endure so much right now and I don't want to be reminded of how awfulm this time has been. I want to immerse myself in something that makes me feelgood and not anxious y yeah. So it's like moments like when they say likethe shelter has been. This sculpture has been sheltering in place or likewhen they think that Sarah has um the virus they say. Do you have a fevercough shortness of breath, like it's just stuff like that that fuirly grindsmy gears, it's kind of like when um I write anarticle and I try to fit as many SEO terms as I can into it to m gain views on myarticle. It's like they did that with this show yeah yeah they really did. Is that your do more pot points? Jo, Ifeel bad for ranting. I mean how about I like say a fewmoments, and then you like at in the pot point like at in a moment, so wecan break up the anger, the anker Um, my other cringy moment. An episode. Onewas that Oscarn alwer watching Adams shower yeah just and it's not likeKinda like sneaky. It's like we're going to stand at the edge of ourbalcony and look over at him. It's gross it's gross like. Why would youadd that in there's all their weights, like just like, watch himg working inthe backyard yeah? Don't watch him showering Mego Yeh? What about when Ellen Oscar aretaking a bath together and Oscar Shaving Ella's legs yeah? What Elsin Aban do then yeah and wedon't know what Oscar is wearing we just like good, but why can't youput Amamin a beaing Sut, exactly it's gross and then in season or season to, I hope,ther oses ind an episode two. It's like very, veryclear that the dadand mamum are going to hook up o Y, like the I way, they'relike poking at each other and talkand. It's just like. Oh no thanks, and they also like do thisdance party thing, soyou're LAYOP, please! No, that doesn't sheereanybodythat makes me sad. Actually that hurts my soul. I also, I guess it's also kind of aplot point, though it really bothered me how L and Oscar had this massive,like house, slosh apartment that they lived in La then they definitely couldnot afford. Oh Yeah Oscar is a stylist right, so they probably are not making any moneybecause they can't style anyone at this moment, and then l is a singer songwriter, who Um hasn't made anything that anyone has listenedto ever. She wrote one jingle which is not enough to live on like yea jinglesLi canbringngood money, but like that's not enough for you like one, is notenough for you to live off of oreally. No, unless you're the person that sangsOOne eight hundred mpar. Today, oh no, it's no waitit's, it's Ono hundred five, eighty, twothree hundred m par today. I think everyone across the countryh'sheard that one yeah that's. I hope that guy's, probably a billionaire Yeah JeffBASOS, is shaking in his boots. He's quicking, my other, my one other, like cringything for episode. Two was when Sophie decided that it was a good idea to takea picture of her parents. Sweeping and then posted online with hashtingrelationship goals Yeh, I ha. I wrote that down too, like hers.First of all, sleeping with her parents...

...at the age of eighteen or nineteen is kind of weirdto begin with, and then taking a picture of her parentssleeping taking she just like films, the weirdest things and it's Kindamakes me feel a little weird, her relationship with her parents. She alsolike made her mom move out of her spot, and then she was like I'm not sleepingin the middle. Like you move over, but like what Persaly are you L K thatselfishly that's your mom's bed like she can stay in her thogt exactly itwould have been weird though she slept between them, though. It's like the whole thing's, weirdsoarethe way being like mom move over, so that Havbeen weits I do speaking ofonline um when Hel is like running upstairs. To AvoidOscar says that she is going to check the C D C website to see if they haveany. Other updates, like tell me that a robot wrote that, like it, was not ahuman robot yeah, it's like whenyou like force of Bo to watch like athousand episodes or like read a thousand pages or something and thenhave them right, ascit exactly it's like they did that with news headlines, I like the one where it's like an olivegarden like you want o Oliver and commercial like Undrert, iffenit breadst, I like the one where Um they watch likeeveryg musical they every Munschal script, yeah good, but for apposent three, I really didn'tlike write anything cringy down. IDCA you take over that one. His episode three when Seansays he's not virtually seeing anyone else, I think so y. Why did he have tosay virtually that's what I want to know seeing otherpeople at person es looking up with other people he's dating around, buthe's virtually naty the perfect weights again aroundcheating on your partner yeah. Oh also, I think that's the episode where we seeG GS, instgram Anshe has captains like pie, plus lates equals pilates you'relike that, doesn't make sense. First of all, I lo like whoever wrote this hasnever used indegreminatl life. It was a robot of Roa, a boomer robot. Theywomers invented this Robott to make this SCRIB and to attack Genzi andmillennials. Honestly, I think you're rih unconvinced. No. As on this episode, Saye cries overburned, biscuits and then says to James, I burnt my biscuits, but what, if wear,Toast Roti, I hat it es like? Did you burn that too yeah like no one talks like that? Oh and then thelast thing I have about this, one is Um. Oscar and l make fun of no. Maybe thisis up four, but it's somewhere around there. Um Oscar and l make fun ofLesbians, which is just like not a good look for them. Maybe I don't. I don'tthink I picked up on that. I probably won't think it yeah. They were like. Ohwe're, jumping into this relationship too quickly. What are we lesbians likewhy that's such a tasteless joke like? Why? Would you insert that yeah? It's awful yeah, especially a I so foor, though o sorry that was coh its it's especiallyannoying for, like a free form, show who tries so hard to Um, be what they think is inclusive yeah like for episode, for, though I don'tknow like the CNGE thing is that you realize they slept together and thatlthinks they're onequote together and like brenks up an atom, because Ohwe're in a relationship now, God that that was it. I think I have M when Pauland Sophieimita Italian accents and have that weird night in Venice, for Sarah and thI wrote Sophi films, the whole thing,...

...which is so annoying like I it's solike Sara s supposed to like be going to Italy to write a travel article forcontinence. Then it gets cancelled and they like do this Um night in Venice, for her, which is like sweet, but also like wh, N leastliss and yeah at the end, Um Shansens Oscar that really dumb planconfessing his love nobecause. They say I love you to each other at the end ofit. Well, Oscar says: I love you to Shawn, but Shan doesn't say it back,which is like acceptable because I feel like they've only been dating for a fewdays virtually dating. They haven't even met in real life, Eh and then everythings connected wit,the Varyan, and that's about it. Yep Mhm. Oh, wait. I have a few moremoments from episode, one, how good so something everly bothered me waswhen Um named blatantly have product placement like Um the core.I don't know what kind of drink it is. It's like cocoanut water they like have really annoy that.That's just moter yeah, so that's annoying Um, an very l a and then whenSophi's lying in bed with the bag of lays. Like that's also annoying like Isee right though, then I didn't pick up on any of that. So, like you reallydidn't get me there. Sorry Eing. Yes, that was weird Um, oh and then l talking about Cactus pancakes thatshe ate one time Wen after hiking in l a because she's latest hate her yeah. She was like whenshe was talking to that her first date online. They were like listing off allthese places, Sokay, like name DROB, every place in L,a okay. No one else cares. No one cares oh andShan talking about how he used to live in the meet PA, ging district, O NewYork, New York, yeah, New York and he's like they don'tcall it the meat pack and Dis Trik for nothing and then you're like. Why didyou need to insert that? Please stop M Thnthe last thing I have is um. When lprofesses her love to Oscer, she says that she wants to have babiesthat wsing. I Wan I want to do the person your babies with and get married, and why that's so weird like Yan, I meanlike moving on to the really good pot point. The only thing I said only two things I said was: I think theold couple will be my favorite plot line. Unless the man dies, then I'llcall Andat. The very end e said I think Adamis my favorite Caracter Adam's great. I love him like see whewhen I started this and there was like four episodes. I was like. Okay. It'llkeep going there's a lot of like the old man could die that always gests me to Sayn are GooFan of the notebook O. I kind of follows that plot line yeah ye H. Well, I liked about the show I appreciate how they were able to filmthis show and Um. I like Oscars, make up. They havereally nice make up. I like how Shan can speak French. The GRANDPA is socute. I want to try some of Nandas cooking,the grandma, her cooking, and I like the part where the grandmaexplains her wedding day with the GRANDPA, and I may have thought aboutperhaps crying, but then I remembered how bad the show is and that it's notworth my tears. Yeah Yeah, I think the like what we cantake away from this is that old couples art cute, an sand, that's about it, maybe maybe like don'twrite, shows about Corona Os and quarintine. That was the other thing Ikind of wanted to like talk about my problem. Wi H, the plot like jumpingwhenever, like you want to say something but thes, show, isn't reallyabout regular people. Dealing with a...

...virus, it's kind of about rich peoplewho live in la and their super like modern, open concept, apartments andhouses who haven't been displaced or or in any sort of financial trouble, likeyou kind of got that with Diedrich, but his story isn't at the forefront of theshow at all yeah and like it doesn't follow any essential workers or any itkind of so it touches on the black people who are disproportionatelyaffected by it, but only through sophy, an annoying white girl talking abouthow black people are disproportionately affected by the virus to her racistboyfriend and then going to a party so yeah yeah. Do you have anything to add to that? No, I don't do you agree disagree. I agree.I agree it Ijs imdisappointed in the show like Iwanted to like. I would not keep watching this. I wanted to stop after aepisode one, but I told Lorn that I would at least doup so too and she waslike there's only four ikeep going, so I did yeah. Then I regretted it. Oh, I have another good thing about theshow. We can appreciate the fact that eachepisode is only thirty minutes. Yeah, no L, honestly they're only liketwenty four, because no commercials I had ads, except for the last one. The laso waslike almost forty minutes last one I had to skip through honestly. Sorry, I didn't watch all of them atoll I Hav to but yeah. The show made me feel so sadand like, if you're going to film a show during this time and you're, goingto do something so unique like the way that they filmed this they could havemade. It have em like a more a happier like plot than just like people livingin the crone of ours, because they didn't do it right to begin with andthe show doesn't. Okay, a lot of people are having a lot of trouble getting outof bed in the morning, because quarantine has been so hard for them.People are homeless ore unemployed, they can barely afford to feed theirfamilies. There are children who are not eating right now, and it doesn'tshow any of that, like I don't care about your your modern farmhouse mansion in L, a Idon't care how you are doing like this doesn't show normal family strugglingwith the virus. It shows people who are privileged in l a right now, an verysurface level touches on black issues, which is annoying because, if you'regoing to do it, you should go all in and Um Yeah. It makes me feel alone because itdoesn't show that people are having a tough time mentally right now like if,if you're depressed right now, if you are struggling with your mental healthright now, you seem alienated watching the show likeeverything works out, an even likeSan Sister, like she just like has someone she moves in, like likeeverything works out like, even though James Warnd, his mom, not to bring Djeragain like everylike, he comes and then everything's good, and it's like, Idon't know, yeahlike we reached six million casesthis week, like the virus is not over, so the show can't be reflecting on thevirus like it's over. Like we don't have a happy ending right now, theending is still w'Ewe're still in it, we're not at the end yet, but this showtreats the virus like we're at the end and looking back on it yeah and Iwas. I do you know who thes showwas written for like who was meant to watch this like their target Oter, noidea. I and I couldn't tell you like I I don't know it doen't like I doesn't fit for anyone.No, I can't think of a a group, some sort of demographic like age or likeanything that this would fit into yea. I annoy you it's very weird. It's avery weird show MHM now, if it had been like a virtual, dating show, could have gone into that and I feeline I would have made more sense, yeah or like if they had made. This showthat the virus wasn't the center of like just to like show families like in theirrelationships. There are a lot of different ways. This could go m thatwould AAll in better Um. Would you keep watching this?...

I think I'm going to have to go with nohere. Yeah me too wellthat's rough, that wedidn't get a good one and how we thought Wobe at all. But what a sadending to this at the SI mean give it give?
