Sleep With Me, starring Janine Gutierrez as Harry and Lovi Poe as Luna, other than being very binge-able over the weekend, asks some very important questions about disabled queer people, with a very prominent one – why aren’t there more stories about them?
“Your first love is always alive and lives all time in your heart. How much you try to forget, it never goes away from your heart”
“My eyes are tempted by the smile of an angel and your lips whisper secrets of forbidden love”- Natasha Harvey
“Turn obstacles into opportunities and problems into possibilities.”
This series is simply an abject failure. It abandoned all the charm and creativity of Season One and instead it was replaced with a banal and boring journey of childishness and self-centered indulgences.
I am going to come right out and say it: I LOVED THIS SERIES! It is pure escapism and entertained me despite all its cheesiness, tropes, and flat-affect acting. I did not care about any of that. What it did was to allow me for a moment to become a child again and muse. Additionally, whether realized or not, I think this series is ground-breaking for several very important reasons:
“From the day we arrive on the planet
And, blinking, step into the sun
There’s more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
There’s far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
‘Til we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle
The circle of life”
(Excerpts from The Circle of Life from The Lion King)
This drama is definitely unlike most Pinoy BL’s; some parts are really laughable, as the acting is not up to par. Despite that, Rainbow Prince is quite entertaining, and it does have an impressionable storyline. By the time this show finishes its run; we might have a more coherent understanding of this regal romance.
Padayon is a Filipino word in the Visayan dialect, meaning onward or to continue. And this series is aptly named.
After a successful romp on the social circuits, the hugely anticipated GL “BetCin” has finally completed its run.
