I’m getting really concerned for my attraction towards cinematic psychopaths.
“Faking It sounded like a terrible idea. The premise of this new MTV comedy – two unpopular girls pretend to be a couple to gain popularity in their liberal Texan high school – smacked of Katy Perry opportunism, and the internet responded to the announcement of its arrival with a collective eye roll. Until, that is, the show actually aired. It’s now four episodes in to its eight-episode run, and it has become, somehow, a sensitive, sweet and funny look at teenage life that handles confusing sexuality with surprising dexterity…it manages to show flashes of genuine emotion – a brief kiss that meant nothing to Karma, but meant everything to Amy; how tactile behaviour between friends must now be redefined; whether there is a need for labels if it is just one person on the receiving end of this strange new affection. It is a world away from the crassness of what was initially billed as a “romantic ruse”.”
Guys, yes.(via imagine-some-gays)
