13 reasons why

Si, me he unido al hype de esta serie, y aunque el post va en español, ni de coña voy a traducir el título, como saben trato de nunca hacer esto a menos que sea una salvajada como algunos títulos de anime (Watamote aka Watashi ga motenai no wa dō Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui!, really?) y la razón de que sea en español es porque de esta serie se ha hablado hasta el hartazgo en foros y blogs de habla inglesa y creo que en México vemos todo esto distinto, o yo lo veo así. Aquí no hay proms, aquí las fiestas de los chavos ricos del salón no son un parteaguas en la vida de la gente (o al menos yo no he visto eso, será porque realmente casi no tenía amigos y me daba y me da igual eso de la popularidad)

Bueno, todo lo nuevo en Netflix, que yo he visto, me ha gustado mucho, Stranger things, Orange is the new black, algunos docus, entonces dije “vamoa ver la serie” y esperaba algo super cursi, sensiblería pura y barata y/o un bullying hardcore como el que se ve usualmente en filmes y series. Y no, les voy a contar lo que yo vi, spoiler free!!

Obviamente todo mundo sabe que Hannah está muerta, super muerta mortada, entonces esto no supone spoiler alguno, el asunto es que deja 13 cintas, si cintas como en cassette ( ¿me pregunto cuántos de los que ven la serie sabrán siquiera qué es eso?) con las 13 razones/personas por las cuales llego a la decision irrevocable de quitarse la vida.

Vemos la historia junto con Clay, un muchacho aparentemente simple, que la verdad, me dan un poco de ganas de patearle la cabeza a veces, joder, que yo las escucharía de un jalón, pero bueno, si fuera así no habría serie. Y vamos explorando con él y a través de los ojos de Hannah como se fueron sumando ciertas situaciones.

Aquí en México creo que el bullying es distinto, si lo hay, si a mi me tocó, pero como tenemos obviamente otra cultura, otro entorno social pues a lo mejor nos cuesta un poco ( a mi me costó, les digo) empatizar (ok en general me cuesta eso ¿ok?) con esta chica, pero creo que ese es el punto fuerte de la serie,  antes del final si llegué a pensar “Ay como exagera, ni es para tanto”, pero cuando todo termina, te mueves el engranaje mental un poco y te das cuenta que es fútil intentar comprender lo importante o poco importante que puede ser algo para alguien en específico. Porque todos somos individuos, aunque vivamos en sociedad y seamos seres sociales (unos menos eh) razón por la cual generalizar o desvirtuar los problemas de otros porque “podría ser peor” o mi favorito “hay gente a la  que si le va mal, porque____ lo tuyo no es para tanto” , a cada persona le afectan las cosas de cierto modo, si bien no es razonable andar cuidando todo lo que uno hace o dice, si sería bueno considerar que los demás tienen sentimientos y todo eso, tratar de, si no pueden ser super empáticos, al menos cerrar el pico y no empeorarlo.

Eso si, yo lloré al final (que llorona que soy) porque es cuando digamos me logré poner un poquitito en su lugar, y bueno, me recuerda un poco una película, que es de mis más favoritas, se llama “May” con Angela Bettis, es una temática distinta pero vaya, me hace pensar que hay personas que tal vez realmente sólo necesitan un buen amigo o amiga y toda su vida sería diferente o no habría llegado al punto de quiebre, pero la vida pasa como debe pasar así que es inútil sumirse en pensamientos tales.

Hay una serie de memes que algunos critican como ofensivos, insensibles (¡Joder! y ¿de cuándo acá los memes demuestran sensibilidad y son políticamente correctos?) a mi la verdad me parecen como cualquier meme, lo ves, te ríes, o no, y ya está.

Esta es mi pequeña contribución sobre esta serie, les recomiendo que la vean y desprecien a Bryce junto con miles de personas, ah , casi me olvido, los “malos” aquí son malos y todo pero, la serie, a mi parecer, logra hacerlos personajes tridimensionales con fallas, virtudes y vidas propias con sus propias cargas, como las personas normales vaya, así que tampoco es sólo odiarlos y ya (como a Ramsay Bolton, ese si que se pudra), tal vez Bryce sea el más fácil de aborrecer,pero incluso el mismo es producto de una cultura y entorno social que han facilitado su desarrollo en ese tipo de persona.

 

A (re)view on American Horror Story

Herein referred as AHS.

american-horror-story-freak-show-cast

Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Basset, Quicksilver, Francis O.

Ok so this series, created by Ryan Murphy, when I first heard of it , I thought it’d be a cute Halloween thing, I expected some sorta good narrative and that was it. Upon learning about the cast, I was a bit more excited, cos what a cast… Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates really kill the show, in the best possible way. Sarah Paulson and Angela Basset are pretty good as well. Lilly Rabe is damn good too..ok fine almost all are good, can’t remember the guys names except for Zachary Quinto cos he is wack, ever since playing Sylar. ( he’s also on the gay team so woot )

Anyway the first deliver is called “Murder House” it’s a very classic tale, a sort of cursed house, people who die within the premises can’t ever leave. It’s pretty basic, nothing too weird, it was nice I have to say,but also not so much to say about this one.

Then we got “Asylum” oh boy, this one… Sister Jude is really something but the real star here is of course devil possessed nun ( can I hear ya say whaaa?) Eunice, the sort of mad scientist and let us not forget the lesbian news reporter and Mr. super creepy serial killer..ah there are aliens too. Cos why not? Ah right, angel of death, a dark past and dragging guilt, you need to watch it and pay attention.

Now comes “Coven” this is of course my favourite cos witchcraft, voodoo, hello? The whole search for the supreme is really entertaining the sort of gang battle ongoing between them witches and them voodoo masters is good. Lilly Rabe’s character here..hmm Misty? I don’t know, swamp witch, I loved her fighting with Hollywood girl ( I am super bad with names… ) I really loved this one.

Freakshow” this is where you see Ryan is delivering when he said all series are connected, you can look it up once you watch it all but… it’s really well done, like “hmm wait a moment, isn’t this…oh..OHHH” so I shall not spoil this for you, Jessica Lange here ughhh Frau Elsa really made me feel so fucking bad for her… her rendition of “Gods and Monsters” originally by Lana del Rey became an instant staple song on any device I own. Please watch this one carefully, specially soon after you’re done with Asylum. We also got another maniac killer cos can’t have enough.

Hotel” … the idea was good, Lady Gaga being an addition was good, no Jessica Lange is always sad, it started off well,  it really did…then…well sometimes you have 3,6 ideas of something you want to do and you end up not being too clear about any? I think that’s what happened…Ehm could be worse…

Roanoke” like this fucking piece of shit here, I am now going to watch episode 8. It has had like 2 good moments but it feels too much like Murder House gone colonial. and the documentary style… Please stop this,what are you doing?!

 

My favourites are in this order :

  • Coven
  • Asylum
  • Freakshow
  • Murder House
  • Hotel

That’s it.

Da best one there!

OITNB : in depth

spoilers

 

Yes, that image is for GOT, but you know, it suits so well here, honestly, I want to talk in detail about Orange is the New Black 4th season and that means, of course, TONS of spoilers, massive, outrageous quantities of them, so if you haven’t watched it, go, go away, run to the mountains, become one with the wind!!!

 

spoilers

 

Ok, I made it really safe, now I can start!!

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

 

I started OITNB because there was a lesbian couple, well something like it and I liked the idea of a women’s prison, the politics going there and a first timer, sort of high class person going there, should be interesting! Hell it was!!

 

4th season shows a power maniac Piper, who unintentionally promotes the creation of a white power group..yeah, skinheads and all, but she wasn’t the most interesting character this time, for me, she was stupid, then she realised, she got branded with a nazi swastika and got together ( or something like that) with Alex, I liked that, can’t deny they are my favourite couple of all times, even if they both can be very stubborn and silly.

Who do I start with… Pensatucky… she was raped , we are presented with the man, the guard who did it, in a different light, he’s not just immediately a horrible monster, he is a complex person, the show is not defending what he did but it’s giving us, I think , an environment when abuse of power is enabled over and over, honestly, the other guards are “worse” take the sadist one, Humps, he puts inmates to fight, he mentally tortures the ones he can, he is a true monster, Donuts, the rapist..well, he was really confused? he didn’t think it was rape,he did something terrible, but I did not see him taking joy on that or on being a total asshole, as compared to Humps and of course Piscatella who has no respect whatsoever for these women in prison because he thinks they deserve nothing and are total scum.

Lolly…you know the crazy woman who is ultra paranoid… seeing her backstory was very sad.. I can’t imagine how it is to have voices and absurd ideas on your head and not being able to quiet them down, at the same time not being crazy enough to forget they aren’t real…you are sorta aware you are sick but you can’t help it… and Mr. Healy… his mom… ah such a man, I understood him so much better…

Suzanne aka Crazy eyes… I supposed it’d be something like that, she has some obvious mental condition and this person, “sister”? took care of her and then she went and tried making friends…a lil boy who fell to his death ( not like you Tommen LOL )  , really sad.

Alex and Piper… I thought I’d care a lot about these two but with Nikki relapsing, Poussey dying ( which wasn’t so devastating for me, I mean it was terrible but…after how Piscatella had been mistreating everyone, especially Red.. I didn’t have enough feels left in me ) it was nice to see them “getting back together” for whatever that means, but that was kind of it. They better go back to have sweet moments soon modafockers.

Soso and Poussey… I didn’t enjoy watching them, I’m not being double racist, stop it, but I don’t know, it was kind of..”ok..”

The riot though…that riot at the end, with all the girls fed up and Daya grabbing the gun that mister son of a bitch aka Humps had kept on his ankle… Wooohooo. Can’t wait, but must, for next season!!
