ABC gave us our first look at life on the inside of The Glass House, and even though it was only an hour (yes, their idea of live-streaming is one hour three days a week), I think we’ve all seen enough to start making our first impressions.
I’ll do a little run-down.
The house is actually pretty awesome looking. I wouldn’t mind living there. Or accidentally murdering a hooker in the bathroom (sorry, I think it looks like a Vegas hotel. Or nightclub. If this were a contest, the house might earn more points than the Big Brother house. But don’t worry, that’s about the only area that’s winning.
OK, I don’t know if that voice giving out commands and asking questions is actually the host. But whatever, it’s LAME. It’s like a constipated Siri, as she was called lovingnly on Twitter. She’s no Chenbot. And why was she calling us fans? We’ve never even seen the show. We were curious masochists at best.
I have no @#$%*-ing clue what I watched. I spent an hour trying to figure out what they were doing moving from room to room, writing stuff on glass marker boards and collectively blowing that dude from Toledo. I guess he’s going to be the resident stud? It also just felt really staged. And they know they’re on camera and are being watched, so they’re all stiff and trying to make an impression. The effect just wasn’t there.
I thought seeing them live would be a little better than when we first saw them, but not so much. Still trying to figure out the hot one. Maybe it’s Mr. Toledo? Maybe it’s that cocktail waitress. Maybe not. I think I’ve picked out the token gay, the token douchebag(s) and the token slut. But I’m still trying to figure out the rest.
Did you watch the live streaming? What were your first impressions?
