I cant decide between Fringe and me who is Wolfgang and who is Felix?

Also it is frankly racist how beautiful the blue uniform looks on Will. Im offended.

Stopping in the middle of a crime to critique a reality competition contestant is very me but otherwise I'm more of a Felix, I think.

Hernando & Lito workout session needs to win some kind of award. So does the subsequent orgy.
I feel like Riley story has been dragging for too long and thats why shes so unpopular. The whole thing with Nyx should have been cancelled.

We are both Felix.

The Christmas special:

SPOILERS:
Nothing says "Christmas" like an orgy.

Lito's mom calling him her little penguin <3 Everything with Lito/his mom/Hernando/Dani <3, actually.

The timing seemed wonky in places.

"Feeling Good" AND "Hallelujah" in one episode, what old song that was overplayed eight years ago will they use in S2 proper?

The meta joke about people's faces changing but their hearts staying the same was great but then they had to go and ruin it by explicitly commenting on Capheus looking different.

Speaking of, the recast is okay but I'm not feeling him.

Oh brother.

Im just coming out (phrasing) of season 1 high so maybe Im biased but I didnt love it like I thought I would.

SPOILERS:
Capheus reintroduction was so.... problematic. The meta commentary on his recast was heavy handed and out of place. I cant remember the show interracting with its audience in such a fashion ever. Turned me off the whole thing. And then they dont even try to pretend like fleshing out this nu Capheus when he so desperately needs it. Jela had waayyyyy more lines than him. In 2 hours they could fit one storyline for him? This is bullshit tbh and after the character's gore torture porn plot in season 1 I really cant say I trust the writers with Capheus. And yes race has to do with it tbh.

Kala storyline keeps moving forward.... in the wrong direction. I rolled my eyes in the s1 finale when Wolfie dramatically proclaimed she HAD to marry Rajan bc he was a monster. Implying they were the only two choices available. Implying she HAD to chose anyone at all. Implying she wasnt already aware that she didnt love Rajan befour she even met him. And yet times and again shes offered the opportunity to back off from this relationship and she keeps forcing it while not ever showing any sign of loving Rajan. I understand theres a cultural aspect Im not familiar with but its just very far from early season 1 Kala stating she went to university to become a scientific not find a husband. It always felt like she had leeway so I dont understand why she keeps imposing this on herself and dragging it when we KNOW and weve known since the pilot she wasnt going to stay with Rajan.

Sun and Will storylines were whatever. I like gruffy addict Will better than his former self. But Riley just morphing into dutiful wife with no insight in her progress from s1 finale to now was lol. Confirming her status as just a fantasy dreamgirl fulfilling whatever role Wills arc needs atm instead of an actual protagonist. Sun best moment was interacting with Wolfgang. Theyre cute okay.

Speaking of Wolfie I hate this Berlin gangster crap. Its symptomatic of a bigger problem with the show that aside from Will, Riley and Nomi no one in the cluster seems connected to the main BPO plot. Everyone's doing their genre shit and Im tired of it. If theyd introduced Wolfgang into the main storyline instead of whatever this turf war thing Id have bitched abt how only the Whites are participating in the Story but even that would have been preferable.

Ultimately I feel only Lito storyline evolved in a meaningful and satisfying fashion. Kala's speech at the beginning was a highlight. Lito/Nomi/Wolfgang is my favorite cluster dynamic I think. Nice focus on Hernando at the beginning and during NYE. Since we visited Daniela s home I assumed wed learn more about her bit no such chance. But given that some protagonists werent given any focus (*cough*Capheus*cough*Riley) itd have been silly to focus on her.

It was probably a bad idea to have this one episode span over half a year. Should have just been November/December tbh. Having the cluster bday and christmas and nye in the same episode was tew much. I also find it silly that all members of the clusters celebrate bdays and christmas and nye.


Plot should have been tighter and pace was wonky at time due to the many time skips and pretty much absence of tension or any real stakes. I also hated that final scene it was in the trailer ffs who puts the final scene in the trailer. Music was puuuuuurfect.
