    Past Tense


    A brand new entry, all this month!!!

    When you were in your twenties did you consider making your money outside the norm? Did you consider prostitution?? Think on that while having "The Girlfriend Experience".



    "The Girlfriend Experience [Season One]" was released on home video on August 2nd, 2016.

    It streeted against "Batman: The Killing Joke", "Mothers Day", "The Trust" and "Keanu".

    This release originally came with a non-embossed cardboard slipcase which mirrored the wraparound. It also came with one small insert. An ad for Starz app; stream shows on iTunes and Google Play devices.

    No air dates are listed. Two disc set in a standard two disc case. These are half hour episodes. It also came on Blu-Ray, same date.

    - - -

    There was one store exclusive.



    Target offered an unlisted exclusive (as seen in the above weekly ad), a slipcover on street for $24.99. Hard to describe; it has texture to it, like some kind of fabric, but it's not. Interesting.

    That's it.

    Not much of an exclusive. But if you were going to buy (at the time), might as well get this one. *nods*

    Found out about this item from a different message board, did not know at the time. In fact, I did not pick up until August 5th, that morning.

    I was lucky to find mine. They had the DVDs, but were not shelved with the new releases.

    Wait for it...

    They were next to children's titles. WTF? The rear shelf, behind the kid DVDs and BDs.

    'Mommy, I want to be sugar baby when I grow up.'

    Whatever, your kid - not mine.

    There were three copies, two had damaged slipcases, one didn't - took that one home. As I recall, I only saw DVD copies, not Blu-Rays with the exclusive slip. But I could be wrong.

    Rant.

    A post that stirs, a shadow that casts an insatiable thirst drains a martini glass. There's no place sacred, no honest reflection.

    Before I get to the series, I should make it clear - this is based on the 2009 film of the same; Steven Soderbergh directed the movie and is an executive producer on the show. That was released on DVD with an unrated version as a bonus. As to be expected, quite mature.

    The motion picture is a notion for the series - loosely based would be far more accurate.

    The movie stars former adult video starlet (award winning no less), Sasha Grey as Christine - her alias is Chelsea; set in Manhattan.

    Her troubles getting her usual fees as this is financial crisis period; Christine is a subject of a journalist interviewing her about her vocation.

    None of the film actors/actress carried over.

    The series is pretty much in name only in regard to our main character. We get an expanded universe of her life, where high end call girl services is a part of her existence.

    The show...



    Riley Keough plays Christine Reade - her alias is Chelsea Rayne. A law student studying copy right law who is an intern at the Chicago law firm of Kirkland & Allen.

    Not much of a social life nor much friends.

    One night, tagging along her pal, Avery Suhr (Kate Lyn Sheil) at a restaurant, she discovers her friend is a call girl; more than a few extra bucks. Intrigued, Christine opts to try it out.



    Avery setting her up with her madam, Jacqueline (Alexandra Castillo).

    What follows is Christine trying to balance her secrets and commitments; doors opening and doors closing. Is her future, law or personal entertainer?

    Let me make this clear - Reade is not a victim.

    She often comes across as cold, she's a calculating young woman who wants more out of life. Not cruel or driven by rage. Christine is not an emotional person; strong, confident, horny and loves money. There is morality, but it's flexible.

    One of the plot points is her upgrading her address; moving from a small apartment to a lager one to an even larger one in a better location. But all of them have the same thing thing in common - it's spartan. Just barely any furniture, a utilitarian existence.

    Could be seen as living a disposable life. Should be noted, the show is presented in very desaturated colors.



    Before you ask. Yes, lots of nudity, this isn't a shy show.

    As you can see from the DVD cover (exclusive) above, it does not say this is season one.

    I'm thinking they did not know they were going to get renewed. So at the time, it was a self-contained series.

    The home video release as mentioned above was on August 2nd. Starz announced their order for season two on August 1, 2016.



    Season two premiered on November 5th, 2017. This is a soft-reboot though. Keough does not return. We are now following a new girl, Narges Rashidi as Darya Esford - same vocation.

    This new season will follow two parallel story lines.

    Kinda bummed out, would like to see more tales with her. We just get a taste of her family learning of her choice of employment.

    Keough is great casting - just right, attractive, but not super model looking.

    Christine straddles that line of being sometimes a bitch and human.



    She has some serious hardships come her way; folks who try to hurt her and those who plot to steal from her.

    One of the main story lines is Chelsea befriended by a rich man who want to take care of her - NOT a white knight. More like a father to a daughter - that he has sex with. It's complicated. He dies, leaving her some serious money.

    But his son is fighting her for it, out of spite. She won't get a dime unless she admits she's a hooker. A fact that would destroy her life, socially and personal. Plus a running story line about her boss screwing her over and her law firm operating a shady medical account.

    It was odd to see Mary Lynn Rajskub as Erin Roberts, a dirty lawyer (as in crooked, not sexy time). I'm so used to seeing her as Chloe O'Brian from "Twenty-Four" series.

    Don't have cable so I can't speak of season two. But season one is a part of my collection and I would recommend it. Sway. The themes are mature and actions have consequences.

    That's it. One of my shorter entries, but gets to the point.

    Come back here on November 23rd, 2017 and bring some liquor with a good seat, we're gonna get schooled.
