It seems that when there is money involved, there is a sense of being able to coexist among the characters, at least in the first scene of Love is Blind (2015), the new series from Flo X Films on You Tube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkLpvuFY7ng. But, the true colors of people always eventually shine through, like for example when the Mr. Ramon was able to sit and handle business with his associates, many of whom are African-American. But, still, when his daughter wants to buy a nice car with his money shortly after the meeting is dismissed, he said that he didn’t want her bringing any black guys around in it.
The theme of anger continues as a working Haitian nurse and mother is told by her employer, Mr. Matthew, to go home and take the rest of the day off when he returns home and finds that the place is dirty and his father has a fever. She then goes to her place, apparently upset because of getting fussed at, and does the exact same thing to her children.
Anger in America is many times the same. When one person gets hurt they transfer it onto others almost effortlessly in an attempt to relieve the pain that they themselves are experiencing. After watching the first episode of this wonderful new series, Love is Blind (2015), I can’t wait to see what other themes streamline through this brand new drama production, one that is set in modern day Brooklyn, New York, USA, a melting pot of diversity that has an thick undertone of hatred, fear, sadness, and violence (you can catch episode one here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkLpvuFY7ng)
There isn’t always a pattern of different races that have something against one another in Brooklyn, or across the nation. Sometimes the same race looks at their own youth and will tell them when they are wrong, as in the store scene which you can watch along with the rest of Episode One, “The Setup”, at the above link. But, the opposing race vibe still is alive in the scene at the store when the two drunken Black men (who got scorned by the mother from before for acting rude and obnoxious) came in and began clowning the Arab immigrant couple.
But, without giving too much away, before you see the first episode of Love and Blind (2015) yourself, I want you to pay attention to something as you watch: The way that dramas are setup up today the characters have no depth, but with this new series even the ones that you want to hate sometimes end up doing or saying something that balances them out, and shows that they actually have some good in them. The director and producers give a well-rounded view of these characters, and the real and vivid scenes won’t let you take your eyes off the screen.
This is not an episode critique that I am doing here about Love is Blind (2015). Anybody that knows me knows that I am not a critic. And this is not a request. I am straight out telling you to take you’re a-double-snakes to this link (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkLpvuFY7ng), and enjoy the first episode of what is the best new independent drama that I have seen so far in 2015!
