kakashi: Yeah, we're still here. And we are really enjoying this show. Sure, we're crazy, but we already knew that. By the way, JoAnne, don't get too attached to the mulletless-guy. I'll tell you why later. Oh, and: We have started to call this show the USBoFiasco.
JoAnne: So when you get a makeover it completely changes your dance style. Who knew? I like to call this little sequence OMG Daddy if you don't let me have the new Prius I will HATE YOU.
kakashi: Yes, after her make-over, Zoey went into herself long and deep and then decided to stop doing female-itch dances. She now does VERY expressive dances.
kakashi: Wasn't there a lot of traffic background noise in this one? But in comparison to what we had before, this was indeed GOOD sound.
kakashi: So, I have started to watch the Korean BoF the other day. Yes, I did. And you know what? I was REALLY surprised how good it is! At least in comparison to this.
JoAnne: I think they're dancing to that weird little musical flute-y thing that they use now and then. It's growing on me. I know this signals the coming of the Fourth Horseman, but I'm helpless.
kakashi: Let me warn you again, JoAnne, do not get attached. Because ... are you sure these people will be in the next episodes?!
JoAnne: And there you go. With one phone call to one person, Liam has rearranged the entire class trip. Hawaii is out, Malibu is in.
JoAnne: The girls arrive at a lovely home which is, problematically for a beach house, nowhere near an actual beach. The girls all flop around quite happily and discuss taking surf lessons from Brad, as if Angelina would let them within 10 feet. And then, of course, the boys show up. I guess Liam bought the time-share company?
kakashi: Right. A question: has it ever been established that Liam is EXTREMELY rich? I guess we are to assume that because that's how the story goes, but we have NEVER seen him at his house etc.
Maybe it's because of the limited budget.
JoAnne: Playa's hot for Cupcake and VAD likes Cool Chick. Liam is thrilled one of them knows his name because it means New Zoey talks about him. F4 (well F3, one is missing right now) and Z3 declare a truce for the week, and Cool Chick threatens Liam, but forgets her lines so just randomly says the words 'dead bodies' then shakes her head and cringes in embarrassment. Us too, Cool Chick. Us too.
kakashi: The sound is alright though. As is the light. Good move to go film in just one place, which happens to be inside.
JoAnne: It all looks quite promising and then (dun dun DUN) The Walking Dead show up. So if Z3 has half the time-share and F4 has half the time share... hmm. It's a big house. There must be 3 halves. These women are so awful at acting that I feel my own IQ dipping dangerously low whenever they appear. And now the MINIONS show up, too. How many halves must a half-share have if a half-share must share halves?
kakashi: I always assumed they deliberately acted really badly and dumb. Don't tell me I was wrong?
kakashi: He is waiting for his Model GF, of course. He also is the king of derp-faces. I made so many screencaps of them! I will show them to you, JoAnne, if you ever come visit. But be warned - you will maybe die laughing.
kakashi: All these scenes are looooooong and completely uninteresting.
kakashi: Seriously. I think my 5 year old could write a better script than this!
kakashi: And jealous Doofus acts like a 6 year old. He's kinda cute, right?
kakashi: Oh yes. I also admired her body when she way lying there at the pool (that's kinda like the ocean, right?) in her high heels.
kakashi: Hey, I have an idea. Why not make a drama that has 16 episodes, but in which absolutely nothing happens for most of the time? Oh wait ...
kakashi: I don't like him either. He just puts me to sleep. Awful line delivery, too. But THAT line made me lol. That's all he can come up with? "You know, he's not that bad?" Buahahaha.
kakashi: This is supposed to be full of tension, of course. We all know Cupcake has a boyfriend. And now there is Playa that tempts her. So ... tension.
kakashi: Yeah. This is kinda like when we went on school trips? When I was 15? Everybody in a house, lots of flirting with the other sex, sometimes kissing. Feels exactly the same. So friggin immature.
kakashi: Alright. Here comes the truth: I also liked him here. It isn't love (because I don't love as easily as JoAnne), but I suddenly noticed that he is kinda cute when he's shy and awkward. But ... now the big BUT. I will now tell you JoAnne that this guy is NO LONGER PART OF THE CAST! They fired him. He's gone.
kakashi: Here, we are to realize that Zoey is totally into him (I think?) and believes he is talking about her?
kakashi: But lines like these are the reason I will be very sad if this show will not deliver the 16 episodes it promised to deliver.
kakashi: Yeah, it was similar for me; cute orange haired Jihoo ... awwwwwww. In my current BoF rewatch, I really feel sorry for Gu Jun-pyo though. I'm probably going soft at my old age.
kakashi: Yeah. "Dance..."
White people dancing. No.
JoAnne: Oh yeah, the Senator's Son. His dream is to open half-way houses in every city in the world for children who have been the victims of human trafficking. Half way through, you see New Zoey die of boredom. When he finishes talking she says 'yeah, dude, I gotta go get some air.' He offers to come with, and she tells him 'nope, I got this, you stay put.' You have not got a snowball's chance in hell, Senator's Son.
kakashi: Yes, he is totally and secretly in LOVE with Zoey. He also is a wonder-weapon: he kills with boredom.
JoAnne: These two, honestly. Isn't she supposed to break up with him right at the beginning, thus paving the path for the Sacred Love Triangle? All that kissing does not look very breaking up-ish to me.
kakashi: The one thing these actors seem good at it kissing. But hey! Better one thing than nothing!!
kakashi: Yeah. She's actually crying. She was REALLY into Second Lead. I think she wanted his babies.
kakashi: Yes, because the DJ tells them too. How old are you, 12?!
kakashi: What we do not know is this: The kiss they share is deadly. Both of them will die. And that is why we will have TWO new actors from episode 5 onwards. IF that episode 5 ever happens, that is. Yes, you heard correctly: There will be a Third Zoey and a Second Liam.
JoAnne: Well. Viki commenters to the contrary, this has NOT gotten better. It is deliriously bad and I love it to pieces. I am developing serious fondness for Liam, dammit. New Zoey isn't bad, and she probably is a better fit for the rest of the cast, but I liked Old Zoey and I miss her. See you next week!
kakashi:So, this is what I got from their Facebook page. The Old Zoey was fired because "there was a lack of chemistry between Claude and the other actors". Huh? The Second Zoey and First Liam were kicked out because "they made a choice that would have stopped the production and we made a choice to go ahead without them". Oh, interesting. @JosephAlmani) has a different story to tell ... he tweets: "My management did not like the level of professionalism on set. I was asked to leave when they voiced concerns." Oh dear. They FIRED him because he dared suggest this fiasco is unprofessional? Whatever the truth, I guess we will have to get ready for many more changes in the cast. If they even get beyond 5 episodes. Cause they are ALSO running out of money. I don't know whether to laugh or cry? (
Oh. This, by the way, is the trailer for episode 4: http://vimeo.com/boysbeforefriends/review/84695075/72878f75d7
