Loved it! Fantastic having Shane, Alice and Bette back together, my heart is so happy! Didn’t think I was going to take to the new generation so quickly, but I already adore each and every one of them and am super excited to watch this season infold.
Yet Another Bad Reboot
While Roswell: New Mexico is one of the worst reboots (and worst TV shows I’ve ever seen), Gen Q is a close second, along with also being probably one of the worst shows I’ve seen, period. And I’ve seen a lot. Being a big fan of the original L Word, it pains me to see it go down in the fiery flames of a sinking ship. Basically, all I can hope for is they cancel it and maybe try it again with more competent hands than the newbie, Marja-Lewis Ryan, who has virtually almost no experience. Who in their right mind hires a women with ZERO TV experience to showrun a series? That doesn’t even happen for straight white males in the industry who get everything handed to them on a silver platter, so, I have to ask, how does a women with zero TV experience and only an ounce of indie film experience end up creating a show? Showtime really must be penniless if other than three of the original cast, they’re hiring virtual nobodies, as well as people with no experience. And, it REALLY shows. Painfully.
The writing, acting, directing, music, almost everything is straight up amateur and abysmal. The only bright spots are the original cast, who you only see for about 1/3 of the show, and some of the LA scenery. Other than that, there’s nothing here. I was told the show is not good, particularly the first episode, but that it gets better by the second. If you call going from terrible to bad, sure, I guess it gets better. And if not for the original cast I would not have made it past the first 10 minutes of the pilot episode. I’ve learned that if the first 5 minutes of a show or movies is bad, it almost never gets better from there, and this definitely delivered on that.
It was boring, cliche, the acting is terrible, the director jumps around to so many characters and storyline, everything gets lost in this muddy swirl of a bad student film. It’s pretty clear Marja-Lewis Ryan is trying very hard to be a Lena Dunham wannabe, and Gen Q to be the Girls, compared to the L Word’s – Sex in the City. On all counts she failed. While Girls is a more accessible show for those who don’t identify or relate to Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda, Girls is very cleverly written, acted, and done, and the show manages to be very likable despite the reality that none of those characters would probably be likable in real life.
And while even Girls has some element of fantasy, as we never truly believe Adam Driver would be with Lena’s character, and is the Jake Ryan to Lena’s Molly Ringwald, other than that, it’s a fairly realistic portrayal into millennial life. In Gen Q, amongst its many failures is believability. You get more the sense of this being a 12-yr-old girl’s ideal fantasy of how life should be rather than what is real. So, add immature and unrealistic to the list of flaws. And throw vapid and stereotypes in there, while you’re at it. Basically, it’s a hot mess. I just think women and the lesbian community deserve better. While L Word was groundbreaking and benefitted the community in many ways, along with Ellen, this is like taking a huge step back 15 years. I can only imagine those that came out, due to the L Word, are more likely to stay in the closet if they see this as their representation. So, thanks Marja for setting us back in time.
