I'm intrigued. But I'm not 100% sold yet. There were some problems.
Number 1: God, some of those character introdcutions were hamfisted. "Hey, apropos of nothing, nobody would fault you for hating gangbangers after what happened to your father." "Hey, honey, remember how I fell in love with you at last pride when you defended me from your TERF "friends"? Just thought I'd mention it." "Dear Ganesha, please let me tell you all about my life after I've had an awkwardly emotional conversation with my father in the middle of his workday." "Dude, I remember having heard that your father tried to crack the uncrackable safe and got caught. Might you be thinking about cracking that same uncrackable safe? Possibly?"
Number 2: It was very slow on the overarching storyline.
HOWEVER, there were more redeeming qualities:
I like all the actors. Beautifully shot. Nice soundtrack.
And most of all the very interesting and fresh characters:
I looooved DJ Lady and Paradoxically-Not-Trigger-Happy-Cop mainly because they seemed to be somewhat used for the storyline.
I was also really into the Blonde Trans Lady and her girlfriend Lesbian Dr. Martha Jones. Their storyline with the deplorable TERFs at pride was interesting (but unfortunately not well woven into the rest of the story.) Could have done without the rainbow strap-on though. ^^ Indian Bride-To-Be and Korean Business Lady seemed to get the short end of the stick this episode but I'm looking forward to learning more.
German Daddy Issue Dude is cool even though his safe cracking while whatching "This is totally not DSDS, no copyright infringed" was a bit much. I like the actor from his movie "Freier Fall" so I'm interested to see where this is going. (Also: Netflix heroes seem to be into urinating on their fathers' graves. Weird.)
No idea what to think about Boned-Up Cheesy Actor and African Bus Boy so far.
All in all I'm hoping that the storyline moves forward a bit more and I can chalk up the problems to Pilot-itis. Also: Please more Morpheus!Sayid.
On to episode 2.
