I’m a little bit late reviewing this pilot but I haven’t had a single free moment these past couple of days!
“I Feel Bad” is about Emet (Sarayu Blue) a well-rounded woman with a career, family and friendships that tries to juggle everything as best as she can.
She works at a gaming company and, of course, she is the only woman.
In the pilot she has to deal with her daughter’s dance troupe’s inappropriate dance.
Pulling a black-ish‘s Andre Johnson, she asks her colleagues for advice and they become incredibly in the whole situation, even talking about it at a bar, instead of trying to flirt with girls.
I am not blown away by it… I thought I would have liked it more. Emet narrates throughout the entire episode and I am not so sure it’s something I enjoy.
Although, there is a lot of time devoted to feminism, women’s rights and the over sexualization of young girls.
They even brought up the perfect example: that weird Shia LaBeoulf / Maddie Ziegler / Sia music video.
Overall, it wasn’t bad. I saw a lot worse things in the past week. It’s still a bit disconnected but I’m interested to see the direction it is going to go to. I don’t really get the comedy and the jokes yet.
Did you see the pilot? What do you think about it? Will you keep watching?
