“american crime” has me hooked.
like i said in the ( x last entry ),
i didn’t watch the first season,
but this second season is lit.
it has addressed so many issues thus far…
the list goes on and on.
these last few episodes tho…
i love that the show presents these characters good and bad traits.
no one is the “hero”.
there is no “love story”.
everyone is damaged or damaged by another.
it sort of reminds me of the movie,
btw: good movie
every character on the show has the ability to be the victim or a villain.
the two gay characters represent many issues in this life today.
they are both conflicted and find an escape through sex.
taylor opting for rougher sex to get off on.
the scene where eric went to hook up with the dl snow wolf was powerful.
“i’m married with a wife and kids.
i just want to be ‘me’ for a little while.” – he said.
he even catfished eric about his car just to get some dick.
it was eric’s insecurities that made the snow wolf see “himself”.
i guess he thought he could confide in him.
the snow wolf didn’t like it so he attacked eric.
eric was thrown into a position where he went from:
“gay sports star”
this was a role he didn’t ask for.
some people don’t want to play “the gay savior”.
when he was outed,
the principal thought “acceptance” would be the proper clean up.
little did she know it made things worse for him.
taylor’s mother did the same thing as well.
even though she wanted justice for taylor,
she kept crossing his boundaries.
don’t even get me started on kevin provoking that hate crime.
this show shows the real side of life.
it’s not easy out here being gay.
it’s even worse when you are discreet or dl.
we all deserve medals to be perfectly honest.
the shit we go through,
the things we see,
and then we can’t even find someone to love.
it makes many of us depressed and ready for suicide.
it can be a very lonely path for some.
everyone says “oh it gets better”,
but does it?
you can spend your whole life chasing something that you’ll never get.
some of us really just don’t fit in anywhere.
i hope the foxhole will give “american crime” a chance.
it will blow you away and have you thinking for days.
you’ll be constantly saying to yourself:
This is really how the world is
its not all that pretty.
“american crime” comes on every wednesday at 10pm.
abc is the station.
i want you to catch up ( x here ).
