Earlier this month I was invited to a special screening and former partner in Los Angeles for a new series on Netflix. Very severe. This was odd but nice. The invitation came from one of the best PR companies in L.A who deals with me from time to time.

I could not go, of course. And I was surprised that the series received a summary of the following: “A boxing student is graduating from New York as leader of her gay BFF from the high school to become her assistant.” The series concerns sex and sexuality , the dominatrix business, role – playing and, you know, bondage, whips, fetals and related items. I was all, “Why would you invite me?”

Linkage (streaming of Netflix Canada from Wednesday) the series, and when the invitation and credits of the series were examined closer, the penny fell. It is the work of Rightor Doyle. Doyle is it. Each Doyle, well, is linked together.

The story below follows the advertisement

The series, eight episodes, running more than 20 minutes each, is not a gobsmacker. Funny, smart, sensitive and still raw – where the data on fetish sex is to be raw – and in the end, you are moving and freeing.

It takes us into the daily life of the best friends Tiff (Zoe Levin) and Pete (Brendan Scannell), and their abrasive, physical and emotional. Tiff is a student stepped in the day, and he lives well on the side as a dominatrix. She is making tons of money and needs an assistant. Pete is breaking, and trying to develop independent comedy, but always pulling back. Tiff employs it and, after being scared and repulsing for the first time, goes to Tiff's secret life. Meanwhile, they are both sad and lonely, with little romantic or family relationships.

The thing that unfolds in the dominatrix world and your cancellation varies if you have problems with open talk about a fetus and what a pioneer really does. At the same time, there is a very high standard for the comedy that is favorable. Some of the scenes are very hilarious, the interaction that Pete has had with his room conversation, a man who is very pleased to find out what is involved in Pete's secret job. He finds out that he is much more serious than the online porn he spends.

Netflix created a unique niche with this series and Special, I wrote about recently. These are a series of LGBT materials that are mainstreamed, and this is worthwhile. Because of its potential cash and for what some people infringe, Netflix is ​​doing a very simple but noble action to support LGBT creators and give them a platform to reach audiences. big.

First of all, remember, the material must be entertaining. And Linkage that is, according to the bucket. (He won the best episodic series award at the LGBT film festival, Outfest.) A droll, deadpan and is very popular. Both are great and you will get Stock Micah (Escape at Dannemora), Ar Carden Carden (The Good Placeand Kevin Kane, a regular person Inside Amy Schumer and in all Schumer movies.

A parallel deft has been deft under Tiff's postgraduate course, which covers Freud and sexuality. This story expands the series from the closed world in which Tiff and Pete serve clients who wish to be hit and humiliated, among other things. Overall, Pedro Almodovar has a unique flavor: lurid, melodramatic, saucy, all bright bright colors and empathy.

The Doyle is an actor behind her on HBO Barry and writer too. He said Linkage He is based on his own experience in his youth in New York. (He writes a press release with, “Yours with whips and chains, Rightor Doyle. Linkage he has created something with an incredible heart and sort.
