This looks like it’s an episode about cyberbullying but, really, it’s about the ways that a patriarchal system divides our young women and pits them against each other. Good clean fun.

Yeah, Mr. Stone is truly awful. He’s as selfish and terrible as Peter, perhaps even more so, since his actions affect his ex-wife and his children. I mean, isn’t he the source of Peter’s camera, car, and reduced sentence? Everything that indulges his selfish tendencies? In real life, it can be foolish to “blame” a parent for their child but Mr. Stone is Peter’s origin story. Manny alludes to this way back in Venus when she jokes that Peter’s dad must be Satan.

And there is what would be a touching moment when Peter tells Mia that he not only cares about his sister but he fears becoming his father, a far cry from the boy that used to cite his dad casually, like he was something to aspire to. All of this is to say that I dismissed that entire subplot outright not because it didn’t have something to say or an interesting story to tell, but because it literally pained me to see through its scenes.

Don’t lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It’s okay not to be okay.
Sometimes it’s hard, to follow your heart.
Tears don’t mean you’re losing, everybody’s bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Review Preview: 812

Posting this weekend! I hope y’all are excited for a friendly romp through cyberbullying…

They have a classic “Girls’ World” tussle: if your social value hinges on your relationship to men, having a boyfriend, especially a desirable one, makes you better than a girl without such an affiliation. So Holly J immediately resents getting “love advice” from a younger girl, because of the lack of status implied by Alli’s statement, and then Alli tries to prove her superiority, her right to tease Holly J in this way, by citing, “I have a boyfriend”. Unfortunately, Alli has a terrible boyfriend, and she’s left totally open for Holly J’s next move, asking Johnny if he’s dating Alli in front of his friends. For all of his rebellious airs and book-reading, Johnny DiMarco is super invested in high school social norms, so he instantly rejects his relationship to Alli in no uncertain terms (“I’m a senior. You think I’d date a niner? Are you high?”) – and if this was a healthy, functioning world, Alli would be upset that her boyfriend just dumped her like a bruised banana in front of everyone to save face. But it’s a twisted, little patriarchal society and Alli, poor thing, is really invested in being a part of such a society, so she turns all that embarrassment, pain, and rage at Holly J instead.
