By the episode synopses alone, hoo boy. Among other things, offending "the entire transgender community" is impossible because it's not a homogenous group where everyone thinks and feels the same. (Just for kicks I watched the episode in question and wasn't offended by the fictitious joke at all, but rather the head-up-their-butts virtue signalling writers thinking that it's possible to offend "the entirety" of the transgender population--though I might also add I don't think we're a "community," so there's also that.)
Anyway. WTF is this show; please give us good storytelling rather than utterly-woke BS that will no doubt have certain folks happily squeeing--I suspect this show is for them, not for me? Oh, and I also loved the girlfriend beating down her boyfriend verbally in the aforementioned episode for telling an anecdote where a coworker tried to seduce him. Really excellent stuff. Just what gender relations, already strained, need right now. More of this "women are right, men suck" polarizing vitriol.
Amazon, you've got a crapton of money, why is your "studio" sinking so much of it into project after project that isn't entertainment but political brouhaha? Can we just get some good stories and good characters without this futzery, please and thanks?
P.S. The other one-star reviews--the sane folks who actually watched the show in order--have provided further confirmation that this is some deeply disturbing sh!t. I went back to try and watch the first episode, and couldn't make it through three minutes. What does the publicist tell the naked man, obviously distressed, whose (underage? Barely-18, anyway) one-night-stand she's trying to save?
"Can you roll that thing up? It's flapping really close to my face."
Apparently my relaying of the girlfriend / boyfriend scene from the one episode I actually watched, and calling it vitriol, was small potatoes compared to the sexism the show actually opens with.
But also--way to show a grown-ass man having a one-night-stand with a boy who is barely 18. Just what we need--more "normalizing" of something that's actually incredibly harmful (by which I mean an adult doing drugs and doing the do with a boy who's barely of age--nothing to do with them being gay). And the scene opens with a panning shot and audio as such that the director and editors attempt to pass off the publicist's trying to revive the boy as a sex scene at first--what a reveal!--because, you know, that's funny . . . right?
