Quotes

Franklin Montague: Paper Boi, isn't a lack of a father the reason you hate transpeople?
Alfred 'Paper Boi' Miles: What? Lack of a father? Man, you hear yourself? Shut up. Man, here's the thing.Man, I it's hard for me to care about this when nobody cares about me as a black human man, you feel me? Like, Caitlyn Jenner is just doing what rich white men been doing since the dawn of time, which is whatever the hell he want.

The plot takes a vacation
30 January 2017 | by atkinsonbrendenSee all my reviews

This is episode felt weird and disjointed from the rest of the series. It's fine if the creators want to break convention and do something different, but it was a bit jarring to go from the end of episode 6 and being interested in seeing the aftermath of Van losing her job to...whatever this was. Oh well, I'm assuming the story just continues in episode 8.

As for the episode itself, I probably would have had a higher opinion of this episode had I watched it when it came out. Seeing it almost two years later shows how dated it is. The issues discussed have already been debated ad naseum so I was honestly tired watching this episode. After a while I just gave up trying to figure out what point the show was trying to make and just decided to treat the debate as comedic nonsense.

Not to be a total downer, the commercials while weird were pretty funny.

It seems a lot of people really enjoyed this episode, and I can understand why. Though, I just found it to be kind of unnecessary for a show with a season of 10 episodes. I will say, the episode was certainly creative and I appreciate it when creators try to break the mold and try something new.
