there is a push for community parenting towards the end. I can already feel the subversion brewing

We'll see. It already got renewed for a 2nd season.

The last episode was a total cringe-fest. Still better than the original movie though, and probably better than 90% of new TV series.

It's a good series but when Johnny's says things like "what's facebook?" I know it's just more lame TV BS. Also, nobody still uses a cassette player.

The teenager texting drama is also super cringey.

I wish the show had been more aimed at adults. A little darker and more brutal. More about the pains of aging in a decaying world.

Well, it's youtube. I'm surprised they even let it go as much as they did with the white male issues affecting Johnny. But, I think it's more like the Archie Bunker experiment. They are trying to make it look as if being a while male with traditionalists values is the reason his life sux-his own fault. But the fans will be those people who cheer him on.

Also the weird immediate jump to anger by all of them is standard TV but real people don't do that. People usually talk before they declare enemies. Men, anyways.


Anyone who subscribed should check out "Lifeline" which is another Red series, really well done time travel show which is easily binge-watched and "Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on TV" which is a quick witted comedy series making fun of Hollywood and YouTube Red itself while solving murder crimes with good writing. Lots of 4th wall asides and self loathing stuff similar to Brooklyn Nine Nine's Andy Samberg role.

Very good analysis.

Why is he in the position he's in? Because he's attached to masculinity, he's not PC, he doesn't know the new rules of engagement for society. He doesn't use Facebook.
