and in reality...it doesn't always end happily every after.

I know. But i'm not really looking for reality in BL.:ph34r: At least when it comes to a endings.

 

I was thinking about Rhit-Farm-Bright today, and i guess i would be ok with any resolving as long as story is good and sensible. Maybe if Farm really likes his cute nong then maybe he'll eventually get over Bright and Rhit'll make him believe in love again. Or maybe Farm and Bright will start over somehow. Or maybe Bright will stop make sad eyes and will find his inner Brian Kinney again.:lol:  

Also I didn't watch "Bad romance" (except for KornKnock-cut what was my first thai-bl before Sotus) so i don't know much about Yiwah/Cho-story.

And I think you could say that for most BL series, they aren't grounded in reality anyway - mostly fantasy. TWM though has a reality edge, much more so than the other BL's so the endings could mirror real world.  They are going hard with this and it prolly won't make a lot of viewers happy in the sense it's not fluffy !  You can go to any gay club and find a Bright and find a Farm...those are characters based in reality. So, the outcome..it's a toss up ! The Yiwah/Cho story was pretty funny in BR...Yiwah was in full protector mode for K&K...

Large age gap relationships are a sore subject for me.  I don't mind them when the younger party at least say, 27-28, and not stunted social development-wise in some way. Under those circumstances, I feel they have the maturity to make the decision, knowing there may be some pitfalls.  As the younger party gets younger, you better be able to convince me that they fell in love DESPITE the age difference, because they have a ton in common and have found a nice balance in their power dynamic.  But yet, the older person must still have a maturity commensurate to their true age, and not be defective in some way that doesn't allow them to fall in love with someone their own age because they need to be in control all the time.  Big age gaps, when the younger party is late teens/early 20s, is usually gross (according to me) in the beginning, and not sustainable in the end, because the younger person will eventually become less young and less naive.  If that's what the older person was attracted to in the first place. . .  

 

I was actively grossed out by Farm and Bright on TWM.  Farm was a virgin who wasn't even sure he was gay!  And even though he was the same age as Korn/Knock/Yiwah, etc, it sort of added an element of grossness that Farm looked the youngest, and was the most innocent in terms of drinking, sex, and even swearing.  Plus, Bright was even overly pervy towards Korn, considering his position as a doctor and Korn's age.  The fact that Bright was a player wouldn't have bothered me if his love interest had been his own age.  He DID warn Farm.  But he couldn't expect someone of Farm's age and maturity to make the best decision for himself, even with the warning.

 

I can imagine that now that Farm has "grown up", maybe he and Bright could be a good match.  And in fact, if Farm's new squeeze turns out to be much younger than he is, and much more innocent, then I won't want Farm with the new guy.  Mostly, I'm waiting to see if I will need to skip their scenes while gagging, as I did during TWM, or if I will be able to watch.  I mean, I'll for sure be gagging a bit, because Farm's new facial hair is not flattering, but. . . haha, I kid (sort of). 

 

I will probably want the whole triangle to just go away. . .  Free up more time for fluffy and sexy time for Korn and Knock between the intense drama, that would have been my recommendation for the show!  Or maybe they should have included Mew and whatever new guy he found, and just had Farm and Fai non-coupled and supporting their friends (AND ATTENDING THE WEDDING.  THERE WILL BE A WEDDING, RIGHT???)

Like you i didn't like the Farm and Bright "relationship". Not because of the age difference, (my husband in real life is 7 yers older than me) but because Farm was so innocent and Bright was a player and in my opinion just used Farm to boost his own ego. I want to see how they develop Farm and his new b/f, before they pair him up with Bright again, if they do. I just think he's not a good match for Farm, no matter how much he's grown up. 

 

Edit: I just hope Farm doesn't turn out to follow Brights example and become a player.

That is why i worry about Farm/Rhit relationship. What if they would be kind of mirror of Bright/Farm from s1?

As I was writing this, I was specifically aware of the fact that you have mentioned that your hubby is older before.  Was trying not to step in it. :D  Actually, didn't realize your gap was only 7 years, feeling relief now that you don't even fall into the category I was talking about.  My ex was 4 years younger than me.  I feel like Farm and Bright came across as having a gap of at least 15 years. 

 

What you said about innocence vs. an older man who needs younger prey to get his ego stroked is my point, for sure!  Maybe Bright and Farm are supposed to have an age gap of less than 10 years, but I don't think so.  Considering that Bright seems to treat all of his patients without anyone around to supervise him, and seems to know how to treat a wide variety of conditions, plus the fact that the actor looks at least 35, and Farm is probably supposed to be 18 or 19. . .  I just looked it up.  The ACTORS have an age gap of 20 years.  To me, that's just too big.  Go pick on someone your own age, Bright!  (Plus, everyone we see him with throughout the show is younger like that.  Maybe would have been nice if they'd show him to be a more equal-opportunity player.)

 

My point is, I agree with you on those two!

 

I also hope that Farm isn't a big player now, though he seemed to be at the end of TWM.  Hopefully it was temporary.  We already know that he's probably not as big a player as Bright was.  He said that the new guy was his "boyfriend", not last night's one night stand. :D

To be honest, the age gap doesn't really bother me as much as the older experienced guy going after the younger inexperienced guy. I know it can happen the other way around, but that's not what happened here. I just feel it's both ethically and morally wrong. 

 

Someone once told me that i had an "over developed moral compass". :huh:

 

I still haven't worked out if he was complimenting me or insulting me! :huh:

Actually Porsch is 44 in real life and his husband is 33 and they have been together 10 years..married for 4.  Both and NewYear while not married but are both out. actors. Both is 30 and NewYear is 23 they have been together for 12 years.  

 

For me the issue is not the age between Farm and Bright - it's the interactions...In TWM2 the ages never even came on my radar perhaps because it's not that unusual for  my life experience. I personally know gay couples who has 10, 20, and 25 year gaps in ages. They are some of the happiest couples I know.  Age doesn't always correspond to life-experiences. 

 

How Bright acted that's another story...although Players come in all ages...( Serpent from WTD was piece of work, even more so than Bright and the same age as Rambo).    Bright broke Farms heart and Farm has to do something with that...revenge seems to be on the plate right now. But even a broken heart mends so we'll see where this goes...and how it goes.

Yeah, I get nervous to voice my opinion on large age gap relationships, because I know lots of them are great and work out and I really don't set out to offend.  Just, the ones I've observed in my life were bad.  And they were bad because the older party wanted someone young who they could control and mold into the ideal mate.  And then that younger person grew up and no longer wanted to be molded.  I wouldn't have that big a gap for a serious relationship, myself, if we're talking someone 10+ years younger than me.  They're legal, but they still have a lot of growing up to do.  Someone 10+ years older is fine.  We're both grown-ups. Anyone who is happy in their healthy relationship, I'm very happy for them!

 

I could have easily put up with their age gap, if it weren't for their interactions (which I believe had something to do with their ages).  All together, it was just one icky package.

 

We were talking about QAF in the other forum.  And Brian and Justin didn't gross me out.  So there you go.  I don't even listen to my own opinions, when the writers do a good job of convincing me that their personalities and maturity balance each other out.   

 

Pent from WTD was fine for me so far. . . depending on exactly what was going on in that teaser scene for season 2.  I liked his character, not that I'm shipping him with Rambo like some.  He just seems like an honest guy who likes what he likes and invites Rambo to join, or not, depending on Rambo's decision.  And Rambo chooses the self-distructive option.  I have nothing against consensual drug use and promiscuity (I mean, I'm not encouraging it, but they're not monsters or anything), and to my eyes I felt that Rambo had signed up for exactly what he got.

Looks like this will be a sequel to TWM. 

 

Does the continuity with BR will be ignored. I hope not but we'll see in the first few episodes.

 

I'm invested with Cho-Yiwha same as I'm invested with Korn-Knock since I watched BR (even with some of their ridiculous story)

 

Can't wait for the show to start.
