Has anyone been watching Loot? I kind of gave up after the last episode (it was just too boring), but what do you think about the TIM character? At first I didn't realize there was a TIM but he looked weird so I looked him up. TIM it is. He looks so male in his movements and when seen from afar. He has such a male body. The funny thing is, my Nigel had no idea it's a man and still doesn't see it. Men really aren't good at clocking TIPs it looks like.

But also, his character is so stupid. He's supposed to be this super virtuous being that's also pretty annoying if you ask me. It almost seemed like the writers were desparate to create this amazing, strong TIM character (it's never mentioned he's a TIM of course) and they failed.

What do you all think?

I clocked him from the trailer but I love Maya Rudolph so I started watching the show.

This show had a good premise but it got boring SO FAST. The TIM was absolutely insufferable and got so much screen time. I had to stop watching.

Agreed.

I clocked him almost immediately. His character is so annoying and of course he has two men fawning over him. Right.

Whenever I start something new these days, I always worry when they’re gonna hit us over the head with a trans/nb character. It’s always very refreshing when a show doesn’t resort to it (like “Trying”). There should be a website like doesthedogdie but with gender nonsense.

Men are definitely worse at clocking. My husband didn't notice the TIM when we were watching You until I pointed it out.

Yeah I knew right away too. The TIM in You seems to be playing an actual woman because they never mention him being trans ever (at least the episodes I’ve seen so far) TIMs get to play women but if a woman plays a TIM it is literally murder.

Men are easily deceived by TIMs, which just tells me they only see women when we wear the trappings of femininity (or more recently pornography). It also explains why they act like GNC women look like men. They really do fall for long hair, dresses, and makeup. I now understand the reason for shaving heads for nuns (of various faiths).

But ask a man and nearly all of them claim to hate makeup 💄😂😂😂 Even though apparently without it, half of men can't tell a man from a woman

Women, on the other hand, must be able to identify men immediately, due to the threat they pose us.

True, I remember a man tweeted a photo of a woman with the no-makeup makeup look saying how much he loves natural beauty and hate makeup on women, many men agreed with him while the women listed the makeup pproductsand techniques the woman in the photo used 🤣🤣🤣 it was hilarious!

Not to mention it was likely filtered or photoshopped as well. Men think they can identify makeup because they can spot red lipstick and blue eye shadow lol

I haven't watched the show, but I picked him out in the trailer easily enough. I see what you mean, he looks really male.

The show is nothing special honestly. Not bad as background noise but nothing great. But the TIM character is very annoying

Yeah, if you're gonna watch shows on AppleTV, Ted Lasso, Severance, or For All Mankind (my current obsession) are the best.

Tehran is also good, Behind her eyes, Prehistoric planet, Physical. They have good stuff, just not this particular show (it's not bad, just...)
