I HATE that this is the final season of Pose! It is only season three! Maybe Billy Porter got too expensive? I love this show. There are two episodes tonight. I just started watching. It is great and horrific all at the same time. I’m going to be up all all night. I already keep backing it up to rewatch. It’s hard to revisit the AIDS crisis and how long it took the government to get some sort of treatment. It is very sad and real. Yet, there are funny moments and FIERCE competitions. I am back to my happy place after yesterday took a dark turn on here. Sandra Bernhard, and Patti Lupone, a couple more big names…but every actor on this show is spectacular. And they are up to the OJ Simpson slow chase.
Strike A Pose!
Pose is the best show on TV. I hate we don’t have much time. But, gone too soon is sort of fitting for this series . I was so dumb about the whole AIDS crisis when it started. I was terrified but very young and had weird thoughts I am ashamed of now. The show can break your heart. And lift you up all in one episode.
Billy Porter beat out Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), Jason Bateman (Ozark), Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us), and Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us) to be the first openly gay black man to win the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. All the man needs is an Oscar for the EGOT title. Sadly, we all know he will die this season. 🙁 I mean I don’t KNOW he will. But I know Ryan Murphy so I am preparing myself. If you have never watched Pose, check it out on FX on Demand. Start from the beginning and savor every moment.
And do me a favor if for whatever reason you hate this show, please don’t leave a comment. Just let me be happy for tonight. Thanks.
